    Since I cannot peer into another person's soul, I can't say.

    He says racist things.  He says misinformed things.

    In his comments he frames Foodstamps and Paychecks as mutually exclusive.  He fails to consider that many working people have such meager paychecks that they need foodstamps so that they can avoid hunger.

    He fails to consider that hunger impacts many people -- not just people of color.

    I don't see how demonizing the poor, the hungry, or others does any good for anyone.
