🚨🍕 Food is a Weapon🔫🚨 Never forget that farming practices and the culinary innovations of enslaved Africans and Indigenous Americans are the foundation of “American” cuisine. Never forget that the agricultural power and history of farming in this country is entirely a result of Black people’s labor. Access to food is and has been a race issue. Underserved areas historically exist as areas of food apartheid. We don’t use the term food deserts because that implies a natural occurrence of some sort. This shit is anything but natural, but much like the public lynching of Black people it is as American as apple pie 🥧 Food for Thought✊🏾 You do the dishes.
