BLACK FARMERS SOLD DEFECTIVE SEEDS
Memphis group The “Black Farmers and Agriculturlist Association” (BFAA) recently filed a lawsuit against produce seed company “Stine seed” for deliberately selling black Farmers defective seeds
Although Black Farmers were granted $1.6B by former pres. Obama, in 2011, money owed to them many still face systematic racism pushing them off the farms. And those remaining are overly charged and forced to deal with inferior material.
BFAA claims that with the same type of land, procedures and equipment seeds purchased by Black Farmers did poorly compared to their white counterparts. Stine seeds denys any wrongdoing and is pushing to get the case dismissed.
