      How does that percentage of whites on foodstamps compare with the percentage of blacks on food stamps. I hear that although the white percentage of the total population is greater than the black percentage there are still 5 white for each 1 black . As a total ethnic black percentage compared to white total ethnic population receiving food stamps, I believe as a total percentage receiving food stamps by blacks is actually higher than a total percentage of white population. There's just a lot more whites running around than there are blacks. A higher percentage of blacks are receiving benefits.

    • Food stamps in a lot of cases are abused. A near relative raised his 2 big dogs on human food by food stamps. Another near relative sells her $300 of food stamps for $150 cash. She is also a part time prostitute. To look at her she has a lot of money coming in.

        Now tell the truth, we had no idea you were black and you're just jealous you couldn't sell your stamps and you're much too ugly even for a prostitute. ha! ha! ha!

    • Worth repeating from below:

      IIRC about 75% of the US population is white. If that figure is correct, white's are significantly "under-represented" among food stamp recipients.

        The question I would guess is "Does the program work and is it necessary" if it does not work should it be made more efficient, what is an alternative to this program.
        Let them eat cake is not a solution.

        According to the United States Department of Agriculture (based on a study of data gathered in Fiscal Year 2010), statistics for the food stamp program are as follows:
        49% of all participant households have children (17 or younger), and 55% of those are single-parent households.
        15% of all participant households have elderly (age 60 or over) members.
        20% of all participant households have non-elderly disabled members.
        The average gross monthly income per food stamp household is $731; The average net income is $336.
        36% of participants are White, 22% are African-American, 10% are Hispanic, 2% are Asian, 4% are Native American, and 19% are of unknown race or ethnicity (longpickuptruck ?)

    • maybe that is why republicans decided en mass to pander to all groups non-white, going for the money and power

    • Looks as if a "new sheriff is in town".
      Hell- this is as expected results when the mindless BObots and "Cheezy Dzeey" vote for a "Fundamental change in. . .".

      The bigger question is- "Did they all get Ol' BO phones?" (Your phone bill is paying for them- Thx to Al "Jazzera" G).

      Alarmed the FSP stats are so low, Ol' BO will just have to get out of DC again and fundamentally improve his comm org'd golf game with "the people"- all to the delight of adoring mindless BObots.

      Meanwhile, the Nation continues its plunge down the tube.
      If only Bush was more "faultful" Ol' Bo with his uncontainable genius would be in a far better position to rectumfy the size of the tube, more so than he has already.

      Now you try to ponder that while the debt meter is spinning.

    • Sure, Liberal college students and welfare queens included. Many of my liberal "friends" in college took food stamps. Future social workers and Dem voters. They really know how to game the system.
