Guess What’s Racist Now? Farmers Markets!

Just in case you haven’t been staying abreast of everything that’s racist these days, I thought i’d step in and give you a head’s up.

Sure, you know that supporting Donald Trump is racist, and being from the South is racist, and going to church is racist, and supporting the police is racist, and supporting the military is racist, and being Republican is racist, and obeying the law is racist, and getting good grades is racist, and working hard is racist, and of course, being white is racist… but did you know that Farmers Markets were also racist?

I bet you never even considered it.

Farmers Markets were an invention of progressive communities as they tried to purge bad, genetically modified foods from their communities. Now, just because liberals invented the modern version of the farmer’s market doesn’t make it inherently bad, and many communities have since picked up on the trend in an effort to grow their community bonds and get fresh food at a good price.

Sadly, now that many Americans (not just progressives) enjoy the farmer’s market experience… liberals are telling us that it’s completely racist.

From the Daily Wire:

According to San Diego State University geography professors Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J. Bosco, farmers markets are “white spaces” where “habits of white people are normalized.”

Apparently, when once white, mostly leftist hipsters move into a new neighborhood, they quickly bring familiar trends with them: artisan cheese purveyors, quirky bookshops that also host poetry slams where they discuss the dastardly impact their upper middle class upbringings had on their ability to understand their own gender fluidity, dedicated bike lanes, and, of course, farmers markets.

But the problem is, farmers who appeal to local hipsters put a mark-up on their organic produce in an effort to make a quick buck off vegans who are too weak to ride their bike ten blocks to a local grocery store, and locals, and original neighborhood residents — usually not white — aren’t able to afford the fresh fruits and veggies.

Farmers markets, the professors also contend, only appeal to white people because they are “white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized.”

The professors lean on the fallacious argument that “gentrification” (or white influx into a community) is inherently racist.

This is problematic for several reasons; first because the initial “white flight” (when whites leave a community) is also considered racist. Secondly, and more importantly because the white people moving back into the community don’t actually force out the original inhabitants.

During gentrification, as white people move back into a community, they spend money caring for their property and revitalizing the neighborhood… not because they are pushing out the current residents but because they are being good neighbors. For gentrification NOT to take place, the new residents would have to decide not to care for their property and not to care for their neighbors. The liberal idea that caring for one’s community is inherently racist is a trope, and is as wrong as arguing that Farmers Markets are racist.

But this is where we are. An America where some people believe that Farmers Markets are racist.
