  •  It's Poor Peoples' Food. The Black Construction (2+ / 0-)

    workers I worked alongside, from the south, were always raving about getting a chance to buy and eat a big pile of fat and fatty foods.

    You can eat fat and it doesn't slow you down much after the meal, but it keeps you energized for many hours afterward. When you're poor and have to work hard labor, that's one of the cheap ways to feel good and be most productive through your day.

    What's good for a day can be the opposite of what's good for a life. Neither's right or wrong, but in the bottom third of the economy it gets very difficult to thread the needle and achieve a balance for both.
