So, I am at work and I see a man and several children(5) getting fountain drinks, frozen drinks, chips, candy, gum, and after it was all said and done the total was 32 dollars. If they could afford this pile of junk, they could afford real food. Bread, cheese, milk, eggs, etc. This is the kind of sheiitt that ticks me off. I work hard and limited myself to 1 child so I wouldn't have to go on assistance and we do ok, but sometimes I want to be able to walk in a store and purchase 32 bucks worth of straight garbage and can't. Why is the government allowing people to purchase such garbage?? Then the last week of the month they are crying their EBT card is empty and they need some food. I see this over and over. Stuff in a convenience store is way more expensive than a grocery store. Unless they are buying essentials such as bread or milk, Ebt should not be allowed.

I receive EBT and I totally agree with you! Cokes, candy, and any kind of energy drink should not be approved on EBT transactions.

If you can afford all that, you are getting way to many stamps. Please cut their stamps and give them to some other needy person.

Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below the poverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.
Although the numbers show that Whites get the biggest chunk of public aid dollars, welfare critics still charge that Blacks shouldn’t collect 33 percent of welfare benefits when they only make up 12 percent of the general population. They say the imbalance proves their case that Blacks are too busy complaining and blaming racism for their plight to look for a job.
But racism is at the heart of the standard-of-living gap between Blacks and Whites, welfare advocates argue. Unlawful race-based hiring practices, they contend, keep Blacks from getting jobs that pay enough to lift them out of poverty. Until more blue-collar jobs open up to Black workers, Blacks will continue to battle poverty and the freeloader misconception.
Turning welfare reform into a “Black issue” makes racial scapegoating easy and allows stereotypes, like the Reagan era “welfare queen,” to go unchallenged, public aid supporters say. Right wing reformers cast Whites as “deserving” clients who are legitimately unable to pay their own way through no fault of their own. Blacks are labeled “undeserving” recipients who are looking for the feds to subsidize their slothfulness.
Now….reading the facts and truth listed above who actually are the recipients of welfare in the United States Of America? Caucasians by far.
I will list the facts and truth one more time….for those too ignorant, blind or racist to have comprehended them above..Some 61 percent of welfare recipients are White, while 33 percent are Black, according to the Census Bureau statistics.
