From a certain point of view.

We treat animals as objects to be consumed.
Humans have stopped enslaving animals for food by TNG's era. At least according to Riker in "Lonely among us".
That's as believable as a quote I read today from some conservative political group in Colorado, which has offices at their secretary of state's old law firm:

". . .we're beyond the time when there are out and out racists."
At issue was a voting flyer, where a photograph including a black woman photoshopped her out with a copy and paste of the white woman standing next to her.
