Doubtful.

Eastern Arkansas is full of formerly underpaid cotton pickers. Think Northwest Mississippi.
A rotation every 235 years is a good thing.

True. Lots of African-Americans historically, and now many folks from Mexico, Central America, and Southeast Asia due to the ag industries (esp. hogs and poultry).
My revolutionary farmer friend once labeled me as "severely creative." Yes, yes, I like tall-bike building and riding, making fermented foods, wild-crafting and being silent in places where there are no human sounds.
