Fresh Off the Boat: Not To Be Sold

Very introspective read. Shoutout to Eddie Huang!

I love the post about supporting local, and how we should support business and people that are giving back to their community. He said Target and Walmart are not going to save your small town, and when they kick out all the bodegas and farmers markets they will sell products at whatever price they want too. For me this struck a chord. I was recently talking to a friend about me shopping at Wal-Mart saying unfortunately I just don’t have the money to be picky about where I shop. This is complete bull and we are all lying to ourselves by saying it. The economy isn’t great but, as long as we make excuses and keep supporting these giant corporations the beast will only keep growing.
