Okay in my area they do a free lunch program at the parks for kids under 18 and it's just a summer thing. ANYONE can come. Will I went and worked out and there was a park next to the gym, I took my kids over there. A Hispanic family was in front of me and they kept shooting me dirty looks, after a while I ask if there was a problem they told me that white people shouldn't be allow to do stuff like this and it's meant for minorities like them. My jaw dropped. I asked them to please point out where it says it's only for minorities. They ignored me then just walked out of the line and I shot back I guess you didn't pay attention to the 2010 census since it know says whites are no longer minorities here. (Don't know if that is true, I was just told that by someone else that works for the state). Can people serious believe that? Do SOME people really think American should just had them everything without working? What the hell is wrong with people?

We do a dinner program every Wednesday and most of the attendees are white. Some white families bring black children with them, and we have no problems like this. I think this all goes back to stereotypes that at some point people find themselves believing and making. You are assuming the large amount of hispanics are poor, and she's assuming all whites are not poor. Minority does not equal poor. Free lunches are decided by income, not race in the school systems.
