Public assistance "welfare" differs from state to state. It has nothing to do with what color or ethnicity you are. If you are a person in need of assistance because you are going through hard times and cannot feed your family, welfare is extrememly helpful to get you back on your feet!

ok...  so i'm not really sure what this post was all about, but i've gotta expand on the two cents i already put in.

i was in the department of social services office this morning waiting to speak with the worker in charge of my children's medicaid.  the waiting room was packed.  i had to take a number and wait just to get to the reception desk.  the whole time i was there i saw **4** white people.  one of them was the security guard at the door and two of them worked at the reception desk.  of all of the people waiting to be seen, there was one older man in a wheelchair who was white in addition to myself. 

i noticed some things on the forms too -- questions like "social security # (if you have one)"  so our tax dollars are paying benefits for people who clearly are not citizens.  and "is anyone in the household a seasonal migrant worker?" or how about how now every form you fill out is spanish on one side and asks what is the primary language spoken in your home??  --- I'm sorry... 
I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA!!
