Black Food Geographies

The reading delves into the inequality in food availability for minority groups in the United States, namely Washington, D.C. It gives insight as to how systemic racism and poor decision making result in low income families not being able to get healthy food. Coming from a predominantly white suburban part of Virginia I have no personal experience with this. Our area has an issue with obesity, but that is a result of poor choice rather than an inability to afford anything but fast food and processed meals. It really is a breath of fresh air, so to speak, as much as it is eye opening to see what is going on in low income areas of this country, because where I grew up it is never brought up.
