African Americans always shown in articles that discuss government benefits.
So I didn't think much of it when I read an article last week about how the shutdown is preventing some families from applying for benefits, and in the article they showed a black woman and her four kids, and several pictures of this woman and her kids at that. That is until this week there is an article about how the SNAP benefit stimulus is decreasing and in THAT article they show lots of pictures of a black woman and her three kids and of course, there are so many evil and hurtful comments below it. It seems racist that every time I get on here and read an article about government benefits, a BLACK family is shown. When in reality, ALL races receive benefits. Not only does it live up to the stereotype that all blacks are on welfare and food stamps, it adds fuel to the racist fire that is always going on in the comments section. Your users are posting pretty horrible and offensive things and someone needs to look into that!
