octopied: excuse me, really?This passes for journalism? Trying to strain racism out of every little mishap? Trust me, shipping companies filling a truck have much better ways to spend their time than sorting out bad aspargus to give to people they don't like.Also asparagus is disgusting and should never be consumed by human beings.

Tom_Slick: Boy the manager is really screwed here, he better pull all the grape Kool-Aid off the shelf return the watermelons, and stop selling chicken. That way he is not carrying racist items in his store./Did I leave out any stereo typical items?
Enemabag Jones: A poor store manager or poor produce manager does not make a racism.
Oh_Enough_Already: 2013: The year anything existing within a black person's field of vision officially became racist.
mjohnson71: Somewhere the ghosts of the Pulitzer family are weeping at what the Post-Dispatch has become.
Nesher: U. City - my home town! Back when the High School mascot was the Indians (now the Lions).
everlastinggobstopper: The real journalistic problem here is that the writer fails to refer to the studies of food availability in lower socioeconomic neighborhoods. In most poor neighborhoods, food variability, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, is limited, with processed foods taking their place. When there are fresh fruit and vegetables, they're usually of a lower quality. The messed up thing is that although that's the case for poorer neighborhoods across the board, it's even more prevalent in poorer neighborhoods where non-whites are the majority. Some dry asparagus on it's own isn't something to go apeshiat about, but it reflects a larger trend that's more disturbing.
