Cancel culture knives are now out for apple pie: ‘As American as stolen land’



Cultural commentary has come down to pies.

The British publication The Guardian recently published a food article titled “Food injustice: Let’s start with America’s apple pie,” penned by contributor Raj Patel — who questions the origins of apples and sugar in the U.S. and makes the case that they have played a role in creating a negative cultural outcome.

“In the drama of nationalist culture, the bloody and international origins of the apple pie are subject to a collective amnesia. The apple pie is as American as stolen land, wealth and labor,” Mr. Patel wrote in his analysis.
