Selu, The Corn Mother shed seven drops of her blood and from the spots where the blood fell grew seven stalks of corn to feed the people.
Then came the white Europeans, who took Selu’s corn and used it to feed their cattle and make plastic and sweeteners, while the people went hungry. Now they have decided to use it to feed their SUVs.
The starving people of the world? Let them eat dirt.
America’s gas-guzzling greed will drive up the price of corn and all foods for the people of the world. Grain prices in the past year have doubled as drought has increased from global warming, and as more and more land is taken out of food production for “alternative” uses.
This is capitalism, where money determines the outcome, not the needs of people. This is insanity.
Is your Jeep Cherokee more important than your Cherokee grandmother? The fools who run the world think so.
