The Trader Joe's grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city's historically African-American neighborhood after activists said the development would price black residents out of the area.

The grocer, whose stores are found in urban neighborhoods across the nation, said Monday it wouldn't press its plan, given community resistance, The Oregonian ( OregonLive.com ) reported.

The activists were looking to be bought off to drop their opposition. Trader Joe's wouldn't play ball.

Well, people should grow their own food anyway. Or trade stuff for neighbors' groceries. They might develop a little respect for food then.
