Progressives’ focus on identity in politics has continued to spread throughout the nation’s institutions, and now some Democrats are trying to inject “wokeness” into American farming.

Democratic Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Raphael Warnock of Georgia both introduced bills in the new session of Congress that they say are aimed at addressing racial inequality in farming. Booker’s bill focuses on on redistributing land to black farmers and correcting for historic discrimination within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), while Warnock’s legislation would provide billions of dollars in direct aid to non-white farmers.
