Re: “Chicken Bridge Bakery Feeds Bodies and Minds with Baked-In Messages of Resistance and Solidarity

Jesus Vasquez - I don't want to speak for Monica Segovia-Welsh, featured in this story as one-half of the business, but I hope you realize this is not just a white man's operation.

As for the previous post, please explain the difference between "appropriating" and celebrating/appreciating different cultures.

Re: “Chicken Bridge Bakery Feeds Bodies and Minds with Baked-In Messages of Resistance and Solidarity

Another White boy appropriates Latino culture. But it's cool, cause he's against HB2, supports the protestors at Standing Rock, and has Arabic on his bread.

White liberals, ladies and gentlemen.

It's cool to exploit the cultures and traditions of other races and the Indy will give you favorable press coverage so long as you signal your for gay marriage!

ROFL!

Re: “Trump’s New USDA Pick Is Making It Harder for N.C. Farmers to Survive

While I hate to see local/small farmers get hurt, the problem that could eliminate it would be to stop the grants for housing, internet, businesses, etc. Appears, once again, the government has used $$ to overreach into areas that are not directly related to the original goal. Mis-appropriation of government grants (taxpayers' $$) is usually the culprit. Redirecting funds back to the farmers would probably keep this from happening.

Re: “Local Film Under Contract Highlights the Human Story Behind the Chicken in Your Biscuit

Thank you for covering how the brutality of industrial farming affects human farmers and their neighbors in this story and in "PIgs in Slop" (also in this issue). I'm sorry neither article mentioned the suffering of the animals in these hell holes, although the photo above of chickens stacked layer upon layer in tiny cages hints at the situation. Indy readers can stop supporting these and similar abuses to humans and animals by not buying meat, eggs, or dairy. I agree with grower Craig Watts, quoted above, that this affects all of us, but not because the beings he raises are food. The United Nations's report Livestock's Long Shadow found that more climate-change gases come from the livestock sector than from the transportation sector. http://www.fao.org/docrep/010/a0701e/a0701…

Re: “Sankofa Farms Plants Seeds of Empowerment for Black Youth in Durham

Thank you Mr. Bell, this program is a much needed blessing. You have given these children a little more hope for the future. You are giving the children work ethic, agriculture, and the knowledge to continue the fight against hunger. This program will change the lives of a lot of people for the better. All of you worked so hard over the summer, and I can honestly say you have made a tremendous impact on my son. We thank you. Keep up the great work.

Re: “No carbs? Go nuts with cashews

Anyone who would eat a whole cup of cashews isn't doing it right. Eat a small handful, and you get about 5 grams of carbs. And, please, don't count calories. Calories are completely irrelevant. Count carbs.

Re: “Durham Spots Like Roy's Kountry Kitchen Are the Enduring Soul of a Wildly Developing City

What a fantastic article!!!
Kudos to the staff at Roy's Kuntry Kitchen! Whenever my daughter and I are in town, we look forward to having Saturday morning breakfast at "the restaurant." It's wonderful having a staple in the community that embraces you with such hospitality. Although the salmon cakes, biscuits and fruit punch are my fav, this article has expanded my palette to consider trying the Obama drink on my next visit. Not sure if the fruit punch has a name..maybe you all could consider calling it Kasey Juice!
