I don’t know what to find more horrifying — the idea that people still habitually abuse helpless animals, or that this is how parts of our country want to treat the people who try to stop it. WARNING: This video contains some disturbing footage. But most of it is just Bill Moyers talking about something you really should know about. So you can just do what I do and close your eyes during the worst parts, OK?


If this video made you angry, you might want to share it. (I don’t think that would make you a terrorist.) Especially if you live in Utah, Arkansas, South Carolina, Missouri, or Iowa (or Pennsylvania or North Carolina, where ag-gag laws are pending). Or eat meat from there. Or like animals.

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
