ABSTRACT
The article shows that the way in which race developed and deployed is closely related to how the world feeds itself and distributes its harvest, citing the evolution of agricultural systems and technologies and the inequitable distribution of hunger and plenty along racial lines. It discusses the development of the historical relationship between race and agriculture. Ways agricultural technologies contribute to the definition of race and the global system are explored.
