Animal rights charity PETA has posted a video featuring Wu Tang Clan member RZA.

His message - described by PETA as 'simple and powerful' is that all beings deserve respect.

The same

In the video he says: "We are all the same in all the ways that matter.

"It doesn't matter what we look like, how old we are, what language we speak, or who we love.

"It doesn't matter if we have fur, or feathers, or fins, the length of our nose, or the number of legs.

"We're not different in any important way."


Break free

He adds: "We all have thoughts and feelings. We all feel love and pain and loneliness and joy.

"We can all understand but we are not always understanding.

"We experience ourselves as separate from the rest but none of us deserves to be treated with less respect.

"Our task must be to break free from prejudice and to see ourselves in everyone else."

The video concludes: "In every body, there is a person."
