Liberal newspeak term to paint America as a bad place keeping inner city people down. Food Desert refers the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables at every tiny convenience store.
Jamal lives in a food desert and must live on two dollar butterfingers, chips and two dollar Nehi purchased from the Korean store owner. Otherwise Jamal would have to walk, bus or bike a three miles once a week for real food and he ain't got time for that shit. Besides, Jamal likes Butterfingers and said you can shove that arugula.
I told the Ethiopians we have food deserts in Baltimore so stop your whining.
