You forgot to mention Treforni in Durham as one of the more noteworthy independent pizzerias in the area.

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

Querido Senor Vasquez, Por favor specify YOUR specific Latino country and culture so that we may be assured you only use and enjoy aspects of your life that are ONLY from YOUR specific cultural heritage. If for instance you are from Mexico: "in 1517, Mexico's indigenous (native) peoples included the Aztecs of the central interior, the Maya in the Yucatan Peninsula, and the Zapotec in the south. Their diet consisted mainly of corn, beans, peppers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, and herbs. Chocolate, native to Mexico, was considered a drink fit for royalty. The Indians occasionally hunted, adding wild turkey, rabbit, deer, and quail to their vegetarian diet."

I do not wish to exclude other Latino specific cultures and will happily include their specific foodstuffs and inventions if you wish, but this text would be too long.

However if you eat rice you are culturally appropriating foods from Asia. If you eat lamb, beef, chicken, goat or pig you are eating food introduced by Europeans (though SOME of those Europeans were of Spanish Latino heritage). You should not speak English (you use a language that is not Latino), use maths (most likely Babylonian/Chinese/Arabic), a television (Scots/English/US), drive a car (Germany), drink milk (beef, goat, lamb all imported from Europe). I could go on and on. I hope you do not buy bread from Chicken Bridge or any other bakery as wheat was an import to Latin countries (with the exception of Spain where it has grown for so long it could be considered indigenous). Corn tortillas are acceptable.

Please take a deep breath, take a pill (preferably Xanax, Thorazine or Valium....oh wait if you live in Chapel Hill, Valium is OK because its inventor was from here but wait....he wasn't Latino!) The history of mankind is of "cultural appropriation". That is how we grow, by learning from others.

From your comments you are a very angry man. I am sorry you are so unhappy. However I am sure you are ecstatic that your rant was published by INDY so we can all be aware of how strongly you stand for your heritage. SALUD!

Re: “Feels on Wheels: What It's Really Like Running a Food Truck

Thanks for sharing Paul! This is Danny with Cut Bait and we all respect you and have proven to be not only a great cook but a kind person. Thanks for all the help you and Carly have extended to me, I'm forever grateful and love to see you guys doin so well. Ernest is a gem of knowledge, he made a statement to me that hit home as well...with all the troubles of food trucking I see what he meant now. He asked me what food trucking had to do with being a chef...7k later in repairs later I understand perfectly the 2 sided element of this business. Paul and Carly have always been helpful to new trucks and welcoming. Thank you for the help, inspiration, and hope your days are as successful as they are long! Best wishes, from Cut Bait Cafe!

Re: “The Holloways Start a Food Truck Dynasty on Rigsbee Avenue

I've had the pleasure of meeting Frank and being served by him across the street from Surf Club on a cold winter's night late last year. He was cool, told us about his family's business, served up some great food, and since we were his last customers and he was getting ready to head off he offered us some free bottles of water. I have tons of respect for what he and his mother are doing and wish them the best. And like you said, not only is the food great, but it is consistently so and it's not over-priced like most of the others on your top ten list.

Re: “Stay in Your Lane: Food Trucks Laws

What are the kitchen inspection and food safety laws for food trucks? The same as restaurants or different? How often are they inspected for food safety? Thanks

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.
