Let's set the record straight about entitlements.

Believe it or not more than 55% of all Americans have received some form of government sponsored benefits. Join Alex and Asha this coming Thursday at 9 pm EST for a thorough review of where the government spends your money. 

When we examine this topic we find that no matter the politics or race those who self-identify as Democrats, Republicans, liberals, moderates, or conservatives all gladly cash those "government" checks. 

Nationally, most of the people who receive benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are white. According to 2013 data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers the program, 40.2 percent of SNAP recipients are white and 25.7 percent are black.

In addition to government spending we will also discuss Bree Newsome and other current events affecting the Black community.
