Wasted ad placement

—– A Message from American Sugar Alliance —–

U.S. sugar policy ensures homegrown supplies, instead of depending on unreliable imports, as we did in 1942 when sugar was rationed. Support food security. Support sugar policy.

As the product of public education, my knowledge of American history is mostly limited to a vague sense of the oppression we white rulers inflicted on women and people of color, but I seem to recall hearing about something else happening in 1942 other than sugar rationing, and I wonder whether there’s more to the story of than just the failure of the government to protect growers’ profits.

Probably not.
