Reporter caught saying that police “need to shoot some people to stop this”

The media serves the interests of whiteness and the capitalist class, these are the people painting this story. Take everything they say with a grain of salt!

Why should kids be taught to hate the police? Because there are 2.3 million people in jail in the US right now and every single one was put there by a fucking cop. Some people talk about good cops and bad cops, but a good cop, a cop doing their job properly, still puts nonviolent drug users in jail for many years, totally ruining their lives as they lose their jobs, houses, cars, romantic partners, access to college, and become substantially less employable upon release. A cop doing their job properly still gives homeless people tickets for vagrancy which they obviously can’t pay and when a warrant is issued as a result an officer doing their job properly arrests those homeless people. An officer doing their job properly peppersprays and arrests environmental protesters so that logging companies can clear-cut old growth forests. An officer doing their job properly is evicting a family from their home as you read this because the parents’ jobs were shipped overseas so that the bosses could make eight figures a year instead of seven. Those people will become homeless, vagrancy tickets will be written, warrants will be issued… And then there’s the “bad ones”.

Regarding urban food deserts-

Places like chicago and detroit have them. There is historical context to consider.
So a couple things-

1. Corn is often used to feed cattle and other livestock. Corn and other grains are Midwest farming staples.

2. Cattle were often (And to some Degree Still are) shipped from the west and south west to the east.

3. Railroad systems Have historically been used to shipped livestock.

4. Because of the corn in the Midwest + railroad access, cities like st. Louis,detroit, chicago, etc have had easy access to massive amounts of livestock. Chicago detroit also had marine access via the great Lakes.

5. Most major meat companies (hormel, armour, hormel, etc) Capitalized on the railway sysyem, and grain access and had huge operations in cities like chicago, detroit, kansas city, st Louis and other places in the Midwest.

This is because animals lost weight in transit from the west and south west. The Midwest became an “in between” to temporarily house animals. This was due to having grain crops (easy access to food for animals) so animals were kept in the stock yards and fattened up before being shipped to the east coast.
as technology improved, the animals were slaughtered in stock yards and refrigerated meat was shipped out.

6. Since everyone worked at stock yards or slaughterhouses they had access to meat to feed their families.

Why any of that matters-
Urban areas had easiest access to meat and grains, but not fruit or vegetables. Meat was already in the city, vegan options were not. Slaughterhouses Were Already built, Fruit Farms were not. The weather here also makes growing many types of fruit more difficult. So, Recipes, traditional foods, commonly known recipes, and well understood cooking techniques often involve meat and local grains, not a vegan diet plan. and affordable foods for low income families often involve meat, not vegan options.

So when we talk about food deserts, we’re talking about limited access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods. Either these foods are unaffordable or otherwise inaccessible. 
And aside from the financial burden, these foods are inaccessible because entire chunks of cities were created solely to cater to the meat industry. You cannot go to place that was designed and has been used for the meat industry since 1890 and suggest residents can magically just become vegan even tho there is limited access to vegan food BY DESIGN. Because these places were built quite literally by the meat industry. 
You might as well suggest all Midwest slaughterhouse cities start eating a diet of saltwater fish. Where.the.fuck.do.you.expect.us.to.get.it.from?!
