Some people of color never learn, they should have given that money to an HBCU.   :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

A Massachusetts farm apologized after falsely accusing a Black couple of stealing 6 apples and calling the police on them

https://www.yahoo.com/news/massachusetts-farm-apologized-falsely-accusing-175225410.html

A Massachusetts farm reportedly apologized to a couple that said it racially profiled them over Labor Day weekend.

Manikka Bowman and Jeff Myers went to Connors Farm in Danvers, Massachusetts, with their two children, aged 18 months and 7-years-old, on Monday, as they shared in a blog post. The farm features fall-themed activities, like corn mazes and apple picking.

In the blog post, Bowman and Myers, who are both Black, wrote that they paid "more than $100 on all-day admission," bought food and beverages, and donated to a scholarship fund the farm advertised throughout the day.

The family also picked apples during their visit.

When Bowman looked into her family's apple bag, she realized her daughters had picked six extra apples than they had been allotted "in their apple-picking excitement," as she wrote in her post.

???........uhhh, y, Georgia has the BEST peaches in the world.  They don't call themselves The Peach State for nothing.  Have been eating them all of my life and nothing compares to a Georgia peach.  ;)

As for this poor black family trying to pick apples, well, the way they were treated is a disgrace.  Mrs. Strike and I were driving in a rural area about 45 miles outside Cleveland, Oh, just this past Labor Day weekend.  We were headed to a particular winery, but passed by one of these you pick 'em apple orchards.  I came VERY CLOSE to suggesting to Mrs. Strike that we stop and tried to pick some apples.  I saw several white ladies in the orchards picking as we drove by.  Something in my head suggested that we might receive a "different" welcome if we decided to stop.

I guess "pick your own" is yet ANOTHER of those activities that may not necessarily be negro friendly.  :(

Not sure I can agree with this one Bro. Strike.  SC has some extremely good peaches and produces more than Georgia does.  As a matter of fact, I don't believe Gawgi is in the top three peach producers in the country.  However, their two-legged peaches are something else.  :lol:

South Carolina peaches are better than Georgia's.  I bought a half bushel of Jersey Queens in Pennsylvania last week that's better than any Georgia peach. 

If you've never had a North Carolina peach you don't know what you're talking about.

Georgia produces some good pecans.  They suck at peaches.

You are half right.  Pecans are good.  Peaches not as good as North Carolina.

The thing is peaches that are sent to other places are picked earlier so they can ripen en route.  I have a church member who owns a couple of peach orchards and I swear those things will make you slap your momma.  I almost eat a whole basket in one sitting.  Eating them reminds me of when I used to buy Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for my office.  If I got them with the hot sign on I had to get three dozen because one dozen wasn't going to make it to the office.
