Why Farmer’s Markets Must Be Banned and Mandatory

Society is willing to pour vast sums of wealth into universities via stratospheric tuition and heavy taxpayer support because academics can tell us things that we might not be able to figure out for ourselves, thus preventing us from falling into thoughtcrime. An example is farmer’s markets, which without the guidance of professors we may not have known are racist:

Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco, two geography professors at [San Diego State University], criticized the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” in a chapter for Just Green Enough, a new anthology published by Routledge in December.

Farmer’s markets are “exclusionary,” allegedly because the food is too expensive, but more likely because ghetto residents prefer to acquire their food at higher cost from fast food restaurants and the snacks aisle at convenience stores — so-called because of the convenience of being able to buy crack from the lowlifes who hang out in front of them.

This social exclusion is reinforced by the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and the “white habitus” that they can reinforce, the professors elaborate, describing farmers’ markets as “white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”

We certainly don’t want anything associated with America’s core population to be “normalized.” Legislation to ban these racist markets is urgently required, especially since they might draw white people into the neighborhood, raising property values and thereby “displacing low-income residents and people of color.”

This is a paradoxical outcome, since farmers’ markets are often established in the interest of fighting so-called “food deserts” in lower-income and minority communities.

A food desert is what you get when the only food available in a ghetto is the stuff people who live in ghettos eat. The alternative would be for the “food consumption habits of white people” to be normalized, which would be racist.

But liberals still like to bleat about food deserts as evidence that favored minorities are oppressed. If only there were a way to ban farmer’s markets and make them mandatory at the same time…

    Don’t forget Capitalism– the farmers are profiting from the fruits of their own labor and not sharing the wealth. (Can’t have that, though– even according to Marx– the farmers aren’t being exploited.)

    Hatred of Whiteness is taught in black, brown and yellow homes and churches.

    Brings back memories of the great food desert debate of the late 80’s. My uncle was delivering to the last grocery store in the main part of the city, when some non pigment challenged persons shot at him during a robbery attempt. We assume they could not read because the delivery truck had signs all over it driver has no cash. Well to make a long story short, he went to the next teamsters meeting where all of the drivers decided they would never deliver to that store or neighborhood again. The store closed, and the neighborhood people burned the building for some reason. It is a Park now, and they have to take long bus rides to get to a grocery store, or go to one of the local deli type stores with the bullet proof glass in the front of the store, and all of the merchandise is behind the glass.

    Food desert, you just can’t make this sh1t up. Yeah, close them down and make it harder for the minority whiners and lazy fools to get fresh food. Idiots…

  5. Bbstackr says:

    Food deserts are a myth. Any retailer that accepts SNAP is required to carry dozens of “real food” items and most carry hundreds. Urban areas that don’t have major supermarkets still have tens of thousands of ethnic markets, pharmacies, and dollar stores that stock groceries. Anyone with access to soda and Oreos has access to bread and milk. Period.

    Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco, two geography professors

    How come physicists and engineers are not allowed to talk about climate change but two geography teachers get to talk about whiteness?

  7. Occam's Stubble says:

    Since the biggest health problem facing America’s poor is obesity, I’d say that you’re right about that myth.

    Dey be doin’ da right thing fo’ oppressed football players and race baitin’ “revunds”!

    Once again, if government (federal) money is removed from education then all this comes to a screeching halt.

    When Muffy and Biff have to justify to a banker how a major in Theater Arts or Underwater Basket Weaving will provide a career with a decent income all this stops. Thus the screeching for “free” college, the better to jerk employed at six figure salaries propagandizing our kids.

  10. Frank says:

    The precious snowflakes who major in Gender Studies, Theater Arts or Underwater Basket Weaving will always have jobs, if they want them. Listen for their sonorous greetings and insightful questions. “Would you prefer Caffe Latte, Breve, Black eye, Cappuccino or just a plain espresso?” “You want fries with that? You wanna supersize it?”

  11. Frank says:

    “Buy the books send them to school and what do they do? Burn the books and eat the teacher.”

  12. FromNJ says:

    Yeah, yeah, we know – everything white people enjoy is racist…
    Got it.

  13. Frank says:

    It’s pathetic.

  14. MAS says:

    Yeah white folks tend to do stuff like grow food and design stuff we need to survive comfortably for profit. The racist bastidges…

  15. Otis Donkey says:

    Food is racist.

  16. Paladin says:

    Here in the mostly white redneck backwoods of Idaho we have farmers markets. There’s a completely non-white refugee community that seems to put up a lot of booths in the farmers markets throughout the state. It’s evident they have some thriving gardens or farms and sell a lot of quality produce, as well as ethnic foods.

    They obviously rake in some coin because they always come back.

    So Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco can take their whitey white whiteness of whitedom, shove it up their collective corn-hole, and go back to micromanaging their own lives instead of sticking their nose where it doesn’t belong.

    Damned racists.

  17. Bodhisattva says:

    I found it amusing that Obama declared a food desert in San Diego… exactly where a lot of people went to experience genuine ethnic food.

    Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J. Bosco are GEOGRAPHY professors, supposedly, at San Diego State University, as noted.

    Aren’t they straying a bit from their supposed area of expertise?

  18. Bill589 says:

    From what I see and read in my life, the most racist people – the people that cause the most division and hate in our country – are the ones running and/or teaching in our Universities.

    God help our children know the truth in spite of their teachers’ propaganda, and bless the Republic we leave them.

    Speaking of really white things, there were almost no blacks at all at Burning Man. It really is a racist event.

  24. KHarn says:

    I’ willing to bet that those two are WHITE SOCIALISTS.

  25. KHarn says:

    They could become TEACHERS in said subjects.

  27. Franklyfrank says:

    More blatant racism from a non-white and this is acceptable to Leftists of all colors. Disgusting and I am sick of any taxpayer money going to the salaries of people who so clearly HATE anyone who isn’t like them.

    It’s how the Left continues to divide and conquer us.
