All Woke Up: Vegans protest non-dairy milk ‘tax’

Empower Wisconsin | Feb. 28,  2020 

Social justice warriors in the animal rights movement know there truly are two Americas when it comes to lattes. 

Yes, vegans have launched a sit-in movement at the nation’s Starbucks, demanding an end to what they call the “Vegan Tax” on milk alternatives. 

As Insider reported last month, 

In New York City, a typical Starbucks latte comes in at around $4.78 (according to an online menu), but when swapped with soy, almond, or coconut milk, that price rises to over $5.30. In the Midwest, you’ll pay just over $4 for a regular latte, plus an extra 60 cents for nondairy milk, making the vegan version 15 percent more expensive.

It’s not just the vegans taking a stand against the dairy disparity. The lactose intolerant find the pricing difference intolerable, too — just so much white milk privilege.  

“Many coffee drinkers are lactose intolerant, and everyone should be intolerant of cruelty to cows, which is why charging extra for vegan milks is hard to swallow,” PETA wrote in a press release. 

It really is the civil rights issue of our time. 

Come gather ‘round people wherever you roam. 

And admit the non-dairy lattes around you have grown

And that soon you’ll be priced out of your blueberry scone 

If the cows to you are worth saving

Then you better start sitting or you’d better go home

For the times they are a changin’
