I was working poor before I married a teacher. I was really wanting to get an older IPhone since I had a flip phone, but just could not afford the phone or contract.

While in line at the grocery store a fine looking black lady dressed very well with two kids wearing the latest Air Jordan’s was talking on her new iPhone Five.

I was a little jealous of her and assumed she was a doctor or lawyer.

She pulled out an EBT card and paid for the steak filled buggy. It was over$200 of the finest food I could not afford.

I was working fifty hours a week and was purchasing bologna and cheese for dinner.

How the hell does someone with kids wearing $140 shoes and the latest iPhone get an EBT card?

I live a good middle class lifestyle now since my wife makes good money.

We still do not buy steak more than once or twice a year.

You might very well have been eligible for the same SNAP benefits that she was receiving. Obviously it sounded like her household found a way to deceive the system. I feel like making blanket generalizations about the types of people who rip off welfare type benefits, but am unsure who I should be angry at? Please advise who I should be angry at:

A) Black people
B) Ladies
C) Nike Jordan Wearers
D) Iphone Users

I rarely buy steak myself, and even then only if it's the right sale. It's just food (something I'll soon turn into poop).

LOL that's not true at all.

“Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes… Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else…Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.” - Donald Trump c. 1991

"Yeah! Get over it black people!"

...Ok...

Confederate flags and monuments get taken down across the country. To get over it.

"BUT OUR HISTORY!!!"

It isn't easy.

The tough times we all faced around here wasn't race related or related to times before 1865. Poverty doesn't have a racist bone.
