The Color Of Food also tells many stories about how African American farmers feel as if they need to de-connect from the land because of their past. There are some African American farmers who do not believe that is the solution. Some still want to farm and still feel the connection to the land. But it is sometimes frowned upon for the African American farmers to want to continue to farm because it is continuing of the discrimination put onto them in the past. The unequal standards has made others walk away from farming. How can we make it so everyone can comfortably farm and and survive? We need to show all farmers that we appreciate them. We need to help them survive and be apart of the community. Farmers are apart of the community and we need to treat them like they are. We help people in our community to survive, so why leave the farmers behind?
