Now this is just crazy.. I take my daughter to my friend's place who stays in the section 8 housing in houston texas and she sits outside the door just like that playing on her Ipad or she will just sit on the trunk of my LEXUS or inside the back of my BENZ with the liftgate opened while playing on her Ipad. I wouldn't want someone to stroll along and take a picture of her and make up a story about the low income families without knowing the full story. When I saw the pic I said damn my daughter does the exact same thing and when I'm done dropping off items to my friend we leave. smh judge someone based off a picture. Also Ipads get stolen and resold at crackhead prices in every city just about being at the right place at the right time. smh
no one replied to this statement yet huh? hmmmm....wonder why....crackas don't love the air a n*gga breathe for real

The funny thing is that the politicians are getting more of our tax dollars to fly first class, ride in limos, stay at the most expensive hotels, private security, ect. A little bit of misdirection if you ask me.

The welfare system is broken but smh if anyone really thinks thats where all this money is going.

They don't even know where or who he got it from. He could've gotten it from his rich grandma who disowned the kids mom, but though he should have something nice.

You just don't know. People are making a.ssumptions based on race and where he lives. He could've easily got it from any relative as a gift...

NWO comin though, if you're on food stamps or welfare, get ready because the government will begin to control EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of your life, and threaten to take away any a.ssistance that you might need if you don't follow their orders.

It's the same thing the US does with other countries with food and financial aid. We keep their balls in a vice, and as soon as they do one thing politically or legally (who defines legal) that the elites don't approve of, we take away their a.ssistance, people die and then we tighten the vice a little bit
More.

It's fu*king terrible now and will only get worse
i used to work construction, putting up low income buildings in yonkers, harlem, the bronx. most people are struggling to live, they make such a little income... which is why they get that housing in the first place. some of those apartments were loaded with sh*t though, high speed internet, big tvs, extravagant fish tanks... i was semi jealous. i live in bergen county nj, and even though its a much nicer area i could never afford the highest speed modem, or a big a.ss tv. i didnt get it...

Am I missing some "luxurrious items in the pic? Not a ps3/xbox360, not Jordans on with Prada clothes on, nor a gun. A fu*king Ipad?! How about paying more attention to the meth problem in the suburban communities and the kids shooting up schools. Racist a.ss white bi*ch need to develop better writing skills anyway.

I'M WHITE. Why don't you grow the fu*k up, and realize there's nothing but racists old fu*ks in congress, and in our government and accept that racism is a serious fu*king problem STILL in this country.

I had a buddy who lived in my town, and I worked with him (he was black, and died in a car accident a year ago ) I used to ride around with him in his car, and you'd see cops n sh*t just STARING at him.

I was like, "Dude you weren't fu*king kidding"

He said one day he got pulled over, and taken out of his car and a cop said to him,

"Whats that tattoo you got there on your arm? What gang sign is that?"

Johnny said, "That's my fu*king initials"


but racism is dead white man

Thank You. I thought I was the only one with any sense in here.

I work for a Bank and YES, 90% of poor people are poor for a reason. They make horrible financial decisions.

It's always most evident during tax season. Im so tired of seeing people who struggle to pay their bills every month, get a tax return and the first thing they do is buy a Louis Vuitton bag or some rims.

Instead of using their money responsibly, they waste it and are right back struggling, overdrawing their account the next month.

It's sad really. Then I'm supposed to support these dummies with my tax dollars and they living more lavish than me.

Once I read you worked @ a bank

Funny thing is... Ipad has no educational value.. at all. Maybe at a college level where you might use it for medical apps.

I've tried to use my ipad for school... but there is no way. Writing papers, reading books... you just can't on the ipad. It's made for pleasure. Let's be honest here, that kid was not using it for educational purposes ...
Right..

Don't mind these n*ggas.. They acting like if you give 10 kids (of any socioeconomic background) iPads to use, the first thing they gon do is start doing homework.

9 outta 10 of those kids gon be playing Angry Birds or watching "Toy Story" within 5 minutes. Its just how kids are.. It's not a bad thing. It just is what it is.

Either way, it's not about what the kid was using it for.. Thats not what people are concerned about. People are mad about people who are claiming to need government a.ssistance having more luxury amenities than people who work every day and struggle to stay off those programs rather than taking the easy way out.

the funny thing is that white folks hate it when we apply a single event to the generalize the masses...I saw one of the those "Don't Renig in 2014" signs the other day...If someone would've taken the picture and alluded to white people in Texas....it would be a bunch bigoted and prejudiced people crying about generalizations.

i can see where they are coming from though. my friend has 3 kids and doesnt get child support and works at the front desk of a hotel which doesnt pay much so she has food stamps. I bought her a coach bag for christmas and she always tells me she thinks the people think bad stuff about her cuz she is using food stamps but has a $300 coach bag on her arm.

The sterotype of a poor individual on govt a.ssistance is a.ssociated with African Americans despite the stats. Maybe you don't see it because your race is the established social norm, but everything in the United States is based upon race.

You honestly believe people would make the same a.ssumptions if it were a Caucasian child?
I'm not white and I think this is egocentric as fu*k

Racism is still alive, but not everything is about race. It's only about race to racists and certain people. And you thinking everything is about race, actually contributes to making it about race MUCH LIKE THIS THREAD = Self fullfilling prophecy.
