"Dr. James Cameron, founder of America's Black Holocaust Museum, survived an attempted lynching after he and two friends were falsely accused of murdering a white man in Marion, Ind., in 1930. Cameron, 91, the nation's only living survivor of a lynching, watched a mob of whites beat and lynch his two friends the same two men shown hanging in the PETA exhibit.

"I just cannot believe they would do this," Courtney said, gasping as she viewed the exhibit on PETA's website. "Dr. Cameron was supposed to have been the third man in this picture."

The comparison of blacks and animals wasn't an insult. Of course an oversensitive black would take it that way. It has to do with "suffering". Maybe the Jewish people wouldn't get offended. Or maybe the Christians. But can you say anything about black people without them being insulted?NO,nothing.

Wow you're really not very bright or informed. The comparison by Peta to the Holocaust was heavily protested by the ADL.

While I do believe that our generation has become hyper-sensitive on many levels - comparing a the lynching of a PERSON to eating a hamburger - or the enslavement of an entire race to eating meat is absurd and insulting! While I respect anyone's attempt to do what they feel is rightous - like being vegan - I expect them to respect my right not to be vegan.

not being vegan involves killing. I can not condone it. Vegan lifestyle is sooo easy. It's healthy and prolongs life. I don't really care who is offended by PETA. most of their views help quality of life for everyone. there are many black and Jewish vegetarians that were not offended by this.

I bet Russell Simmons isn't offended. It's too far above your head. As Ingrid says"I am an animal". They are talking about the suffering and not who is the most intelligient,moral,etc. You are into black victimization so you probably can't grasp it. I don't care if they use the prisoners of the wars of the Bible,it's still the same concept. do you doubt there are many black and Jewish vegetarians?

Who cares if there are many black and Jewish vegetarians?(which there aren't "many" - like less than 5%)That doesn't make PETA's insane comparison to the Middle Passage or the Holocaust anyless horrific. Talk about idiotic, comparing that to any animal is offensive to sane people. The fact that you are as crazy as Ingrid "I wanna be made into a clutch purse when I die" Newkirk is just plain sad.

yes the second image is very shocking, and it is a brutal reminder of the inhumanity of racism and the misery of slavery.

and why should animals be treated any different.. is a question that needs to be addressed.
