Are Small Family Farms Racist?

quote [ “Land ownership is hard to obtain for beginning farmers in general, but especially for farmers of color. Collective land ownership can not only give farmers of color the opportunity to own land and gain economic independence, but also to start building their own communities in a society that has ostracized them.” ]

The article is largely a critique of the ideas of Joel Salatin, a well known figure in modern organic agriculture, but it makes an important point about how the systematic exclusion of people of color from farming in the USA has led to fundamental problems with our food supply.
