Source: Farmers’ markets a racially biased cause of ‘environmental gentrification,’ professors say

Its been a long time since I have laughed this hard.   It seems two professors out of San Diego are criticizing farmers’ markets for causing “environmental gentrification” in which “habits of white people are normalized.

Environmental gentrification is defined as a process where “environmental improvements lead to … the displacement of long-term residents,” according to the anthology.

Where is Jeff Foxworthy when you need him –  “Here is your  Sign.”

Joassart-Marcelli and Bosco received funding from the National Science Foundation to research “the role of food in structuring everyday life in immigrant and low-income urban neighborhoods.”   My only question is where I can get free money to do some stupid meaningless study.

A Farmers Market is a place to buy fresh produce.  I have not been to one in a long time and I am white!  I guess the next time I go I will get a pen and notepad to write down what races enter and leave the market.   In the mean time the article says its going to raise my property values.   I wonder if I can get one here in Pollock Pines, CA?

This is the biggest bunch of hogwash I have ever seen – it is so stupid I just bust out laughing reading it.   These Professors from Southern California need to have their teaching credentials revoked as well as their degrees.   Something is obviously missing in their education.  I certainly would not want them teaching anyone!

Read the article (I placed the source link above) and have a good laugh.

    I had no idea that only white people purchased Vegetables directly from farmers, or ate vegetables farmers sold!!!! This whole silencing and attacking has to stop. People are now sadly very delicate and cannot handle their own opinions or the opinions of other people unless everyone’s mooshed together and has the same opinion. This is rediculous. First I find out jingle bells is racist and now I’m not even supposed to go to a farmers market and buy fresh vegetables??? I already am not allowed to like men, or wright down or speak what I believe, or actually give a description of someone committing a crime if they aren’t white. There’s an old saying that’s going to really get me in trouble. It’s called “cowboy up”. And it means grow up and get on with your life. Be responsible and quit stealing money for these dumb surveys and stop requiring everyone else to be quiet because someone else might be too delicate to hear it. Diversity, in its real definition is good for us. Honestly educated people stealing money in the name of stupid !!! Make it stop!!!

    The news articles I see used to upset me. When I started writing this blog I was angered by the amount of lies that were being told. People just write a controversial article so they can be famous – Wool ah, just write an article about something stupid being racist and you are famous. https://geography.sdsu.edu/people/joassart Is a link to one of the articles contributors. It is amazing that young people like this lady think educated adults take what is in print and think it has credence. Its all bull, but this story was so over the top I just had to laugh. I wonder how many uneducated people actually believe this stuff?
