Abstract

Today, we witness and attempt to eradicate contemporary food inequalities that are rooted in racism. They are intimately connected to the same forces that produce over-policing and unequal neighborhoods. Urban, predominately black communities navigate systemic failures shrouded in illusions of personal responsibility. They hope that dressing the part or working extra hours (or buying organic produce) can somehow atone for the effects of racism on the body and spirit.
