    First Question: Are you Hispanic or Latino?

    [] Yes [] No

    Second Question: What is your race?

    [] American Indian or Alaska Native

    [] Asian

    [] Black or African American

    [] Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander

    [] White

    This is off of the form for Food Stamps in Illinois. My question is this, as I have seen this on other forms. Why is Hispanic/Latino/ Mexican/ whatever always asked as a separate question when regarding race?

    AND

    ......since we are feeding these people with AMERICAN tax dollars, why not ask if they or anyone else they know is...

    [] An illegal who snuck into the US

    [] A gang member from a foreign country

    [] If they ever had anything to do with the transporatation of illegal drugs

    [] If they know anyone who is involved with drugs.

    ....etc....etc.....!

    Stop giving them something for nothing!


    PS....You would think the first question they would ask is

    "Are You An American"?

    It's separate because it's an ethnic group, but it's still silly. I choose "other" if it's available.

    I love it when people attack people on food stamps.
    You do realize many people who work, and people who are apart of our military are on foodstamps?

    And they say liberals want more government involvement.

    Most people who attack food stamps know less than zero about the program.

    And just think, if you didn't feel out the race part assholes like you couldn't start threads like this.
    But here are some stats.
    Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Before I hear crap for the source, they clearly list the USDA has their source.

    Yep!

    I bet he doesn't know that food stamps is one of the best tools they used to stimulate the economy. I will have to look it up again, but food stamps have the best return in regards to the economy.

    Most people who use food stamps have legit jobs, if you try to fuck around on foodstamps and make stuff up they will take you off of the program. Besides right now because of the economy more people are on food stamps than ever, I highly doubt all those people are lazy scumbags.

    As an Air Force E-4 stationed in Missouri (1986-88) my familiy qualified for the WIC program. I felt kinda' guilty using it, but I was glad it was there.

    Salaries for the Military are not that high, especially for the Enlisted. Alot of them qualify for assistance like WIC and Foodstamps.
