Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

More Black Americans giving up meat and dairy

Say "soul food" and most people imagine a spread of barbecued ribs, fried chicken and pork chops, ham, black-eyed peas and green beans with ham hocks, cornbread, macaroni and cheese, potato salad and a delectable list of desserts.

"That is not 'soul food,'" says Ishmael Shakur. Instead, to him, it is "destroying souls."

A vegetarian for six years, the 38-year-old who works with teenagers at the Zepf Center in Toledo, Ohio, gets upset when such a menu is labeled as traditional African-American food.

"A lot of people think a real good, wholesome meal is when you sit back bloated and full and nod off," he says. "To me, soul food is food that adds to your spirit, gives you energy, gives you life and helps you feel vibrant."  | detroitnews.com
