I hear folk talk about people who are getting “food stamps” in a negative light all the time. Are there some who abuse the system? Absolutely. We know studies have shown that majority of recipients of “food stamps” are non-white. Did a little research this morning, going to simply share the links on my page with the hashtag #foodstamps. A couple of observations I will share…the #foodstamp capital of the US is white and republican (should help destroy some stereotypes)…#foodstamps is big business there are a LONG list of CORPORATIONS (ironically many of them are responsible for producing many of the low cost and dangerous processed foods, that those who receive #foodstamps are almost forced to purchase)…..the number of BANKS that PROFIT off of the #foodstamp INDUSTRY, these companies make TONS of money of #foodstamp transactions (they are not putting the ebt/debit machines in local businesses for convenience)…..#foodstamps
