Jan 6 - Newt Gingrich To African-Americans: Demand Paychecks, Not Food Stamps
 

 
WASHINGTON ó Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Thursday he is willing to go before the NAACP and urge blacks to demand paychecks, not food stamps.

Gingrich told a town hall meeting at a senior center in Plymouth, N.H., that if the NAACP invites him to its annual convention this year, he'd go there and talk about "why the African-American community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps."

He also said he'd pitch a new Social Security program aimed at helping young people, particularly African-American males, who he said get the smallest return on Social Security.

Gingrich routinely lambasts President Barack Obama as the "best food stamp president in American history." He also has spoken previously about welcoming an invitation from the NAACP to speak and has been critical of GOP candidates who have not accepted such an invitation.

The National a.ssociation for the Advancement of Colored People had no immediate comment on Gingrich's remarks. His campaign spokesman, R.C. Hammond, said the former Georgia congressman has often said the GOP needs to be inclusive of all Americans.

"He has said since he became a presidential candidate that any Republican should always accept an invitation to speak to the NAACP on any topic," Hammond said.

Gingrich's comments follow those by rival candidate Rick Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania who said Sunday that he did not want to "make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."

Santorum's comments were criticized by National Urban League President Marc H. Morial as pandering to racist elements within the GOP. Morial also said that 70 percent of people on food stamps are white. The Agriculture Department does not break down food stamp participation rates by race.

NAACP President Ben Jealous also criticized Santorum's remarks.

Food stamp participation and costs have risen under Obama, from 28.2 million participants at a cost of $37.6 billion in 2008 to 44.7 million participants at a cost of $75.3 billion last year, according to federal data of what is officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition a.ssistance Program. The increases followed the steep economic downturn that began in 2008.

Gingrich said if he has a chance to go before the NAACP, he would explain a "brand-new Social Security opportunity" for young people, "which would be particularly good for African-American males, because they are the group that gets the smallest return on Social Security."

He's right. Get off your a.ss and work for something instead of begging for hand-outs. Everybody else in the world aren't afraid to work for what they want. The Mexicans, Asians, Indians, Middle-Easterns, etc. all come to America and work for what they want, then blacks sit back and hate on them when they're doing well. There's no excuse for blacks not to to the same and I don't wanna hear that "slavery/the white man is keeping us down" crap either. No one is keeping black people down but themselves.


You're a fu*king idiot.

I hate how the media perpetuates stereotypes and then sensationalizes them by finding an example that fits. Just cause the media shows you a few black people sitting on their a.sses talking about welfare and food stamps ignorant people always a.ssume "well it must be the blacks wanting handouts."

First of all there are always people trying to cheat the system and get through life on scraps in every race, religion, and creed. Stop getting mad and acting like it is just one race. White people are the majority in the country and they are the majority of the population who are on welfare and receive food stamps, yet no one tell them to get off their lazy a.sses and get paychecks.

People like Newt Gingrich pander to the lazy and ignorant Americans who willingly accept any information that is force fed to them through any media outlet. They get upset and agree with outlandish statements and are too lazy to find out if there is any credence at all to the claim in question.

The 2010 census puts all welfare programs something like 55% to whites and 28% to black. But white people make up 60% of the country to less than 15% black, so these closet racist politicians or their supporters tout those stats, that white welfare is a lil less than their actual population size while black welfare is double their population size.

That ignores a ton of relevant socioeconomic factors, but those mostly get trivialized.

So these GOP candidates are going to keep perpetuate a false stereotype, while ignoring that only 78% of those on welfare are NOT black?

Got to have jobs first. When we get some jobs maybe people will start demanding pay checks. Thats what its really all about jobs jobs....Why he's calling out black people when every race gets food stamps. He should be more worried about why illegal immigrants come here and get food stamps and free health care and in some states go to college for free.
