They ["Negroes"] are given as much land as they can handle. On it they plant for themselves corn, potatoes, tobacco, peanuts, water and sugar melons, pumpkins, bottle pumpkins... They plant for themselves also on Sundays.
It is about midday and we are turning towards land even though we go and collect food it is only grain and vegetables very rarely we get meat but that’s only when we find it. A few members of the crew have become sick because of their bad diet and the lack of medical supplies. One of the other ships that left before us all got infected with measles and they have been forced to stay on land until they recover. Today I had to polish the swords and I smell like oil and I can 't get to sleep because the guy laying under me also smells like oil, it was very hard work and my hands are covered in cuts .

Douglass also sees the city as more enlightenment a degree of social freedom and prosperity especially along the northern cities. Douglass learns how to read and write by himself and the help of other poor local boys where he would give them food and exchange for them teaching him how to read and write. This is where he starts to read and learn that slavery can be fought politically not just morally because the slave owners show no moral as they lie about how faithful they are and they can pure christians and treat human like shit. This shaped his political and philosophical enlightenment. Douglass becomes more educated which becomes a threat to the un-educated white man.
“These days, we sell brooms and buy ourselves some flour and then eat it with water,” says Ghaleb Mashn, a drained citizen of Yemen for The Guardian Newspaper. “Either we die from the bombing or from the hunger. My grandson needs treatment and also on the top of all that he needs to eat a healthy food, my grandson doesn’t know what the milk tastes like…” In my very first PPLE assignment I choose the global issue of hunger. It’s an issue that has even been acknowledged by the United Nations, where children are in particularly badly hit. It is fair and we can get through this essay quickly by mentioning facts we already know about, or also widening debates on the impact of globalisation.
In these gatherings, the slaves would bring watermelon, fried fish, sweet cakes, sweet potatoes pies, fried chicken, collard green, black-eyed pies, and hot water cornbread. Where the bad choices of food began, in back in slavery. The masters would throw out the scraps of food for the Slaves to eat. So, a lot of the food habits that African American women have started when they had to be creative on foods to make eatable. In slavery with most African Americans were poor.
Old Man Warner, the oldest man in the town, says in the story, “Pack of crazy fools,” he said. ‘Listening to the young folks, nothings good enough for them. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work anymore, live that way for a while. Used to be a saying about ‘Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.’ First thing you know, we’d all eating stewed chicken weed and acorns. There’s always been a lottery.” Was it possible this was a tradition used to sacrifice someone, to ensure a great harvest?
When ever Bernard would cook chicken he would use every seasoning in the cabante, and Demi couldn’t cook so he relied on ubereats heavily. Since Demi didn’t cook he didn’t have a set menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Bernard would drink this drink of malta powder any time he didn’t have time for a proper meal, and he was in medical school so that was all the time. My roommate Jessica, who’s American, ate lots of prepackaged foods, with high sugar and sodium content. Where I ate things that were fresh.
