Here in Alabama, Big Poultry produces and sells over a billion chickens annually. It is a $15 billion dollar industry that dwarfs every other agricultural commodity produced in this state. Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansas combined produce 40 percent of the total chicken sold in supermarkets in the United States. Much of this is loaded on the docks and exported overseas out of the Port of Mobile.
Now check this out: if you open up this list of Alabama cities by Hispanic population, you will notice a striking correlation. Among other cities, Collinsville, Albertville, Russellville, Fort Payne, and Enterprise are all hosts of chicken processing plants:
“In Albertville, the largest city on Sand Mountain, chicken is everywhere.
Signs from major industrial chicken producers such as Tyson, Wayne Farm, and Pilgrim’s Pride checker the landscape of the city, and it’s not uncommon to see semi-trucks hauling stacks of live caged chickens through the city streets.
About 5,889 Hispanics and Latinos lived in Albertville in 2010 – about double the amount that lived there ten years earlier, census figures show. Whereas Latinos and Hispanics make up about 4 percent of the state, they make up about 28 percent of Albertville.
Leslie McClendon, Albertville City Schools English language coordinator, said Hispanics represented about forty one percent of the student body.
Similarly, students come to the school district speaking Spanish, French, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. …”
The League of the South has protested these chicken processing plants before in Shelbyville, TN and Gainesville, GA. It’s the insatiable appetite of corporate agribusiness to exploit cheap, low wage illegal alien labor that is driving changing racial demographics in Alabama and Arkansas.
I see those disgusting chicken trucks on the road (this photo was snapped in Shelbyville, TN) all the time here in Alabama. That’s what is going to end up in the meat section in your local grocery store. Ponder that the next time you have chicken for dinner.
