That shouldnt be acceptable by any measure.
You bought some laundry bleach last week. We just need to make sure you arent poisoning any one with it.
You have a drivers license. We just need to make sure you arent driving around drunk.
You dont have a drivers license. We just need to make sure you arent driving.
You have electricity. We just need to make sure you arent running grow lights for pot cultivation.
We noticed you were black. We need to be sure you arent a militant Blank Panther.
We saw you were white from the curb. We just need to be sure you arent a militant Klansman.
They cant just grab any possible indicator as a reason to involve themselves in your life. That's harassment.

I have kids and they're the primary reason I want to provide the food instead of subjecting them to the frankenfoods the world seems to love. I can't get away from buying the occasional happy meal for my 4 year old (he gets so excited), but I can make sure that the bulk of his food intake is quality food without chemical pesticides and chicken that wasn't fed antibiotics.
The ethical aspect is there too - my chickens are happy. Free-range doesn't mean an hour or two within reach of sunlight - it means the entire day roaming the pasture. Sure, my chickens aren't the monsters you can buy in the store - but the fat content is very low. And the eggs - the flavour is unbelievable.
