Then you will have people wondering why there are no jobs in their areas or why there are “food deserts”. Because I’d certainly invest in an area where thugs like these are encouraged

I hear whining about food deserts all the time. Such a stupid term. How about quit using the parking lot as a campground, harassing employees, stealing, etc. It's not worth it for a business to put a grocery store in these places because after it get taken over by the scum no paying customers will shop there anymore.

The factors that lead businesses to forego or abandon a bad neighborhood are inherent to any capitalist free market system. When people complain about “food deserts”, the implication is that the state should control distribution of food. The concept of a “food desert” is inherently communist.

For sure, and I'm all for it. How about make your neighborhood not shit if you want a grocery store? When someone does that though it's racist gentrification. As usual, all they do is scream to mommy government to come save them, because communism is what they want.

I don't believe in food deserts, but I do believe that it's appropriate for the state to exercise some control in terms of food.

If you look at what's in most foods, there's a huge amount of chemical bullshit that doesn't belong in there. Why is canola oil in everything, why do we need these colors and preservatives. Sell real food and don't make me have to get a chemistry degree to pick out what's safe to eat

It's possible if the people deal out the sentence themselves.

I'm not an urban planner but I wonder how much of the food desert problem in cities is tied to zoning? I know not all cities have the same zoning laws, Houston has none, but I wonder if zoning has an effect.

It's a demographic not a zoning problem.

Are there food deserts in white neighborhoods? My money is on "no", but I'm willing to entertain evidence to the contrary.

Just look at which areas became food deserts that weren't before and the answer will emerge.
