As a longtime animal advocate, RZA explained how for him, a better tomorrow is a vegan tomorrow. RZA subscribes to the mantra that you are what you eat. Before being sent to slaughter, cows are, as RZA says, “stressed, dumbfounded, sick,” and all that stress will eventually be consumed right along in your hamburger.
When it comes to eating animals. RZA said “I don’t need a dead animal or dead piece of flesh to go into my live body.” He goes on to point out that there’s “nothing on this planet that doesn’t want to live.” “I had animals as friends …. They was happy to see me in their own animal way. I’m quite sure they did not want to be on my plate.”
