  •  A lot of white people are also on welfare. (1+ / 0-)

    My mom raised me and my sister as a single mother and she was on welfare at one point and we knew lots of other poor whites and blacks in the neighborhood that used some form of government aid. Food stamps were a life saver, we were surviving on peanut butter sandwiches for awhile. I'm sure some people look at this issue in race terms (probably conservatives and their welfare queen memes) but I know some some aquaintances who are not racist yet also are fans of the "drug test those on welfare" facebook fan page.
