During this show we were blessed to discuss the following: One of the lyrics from the great rapper, 50 Cent, in his latest song on his new album says, "Have a baby by me, baby, be a millionaire. Well that may be true for 50 Cent but the reality for many women today is, if they have a baby by some of these males out here they may end up on welfare! Even though 61 percent of welfare recipients in America are White or Caucasian, when we say the word "welfare" most people immediately see the image of some lazy Black female welfare queen who breeds for profit. How come this hideous stereotype is alive and well at the close of 2009? How do movies like, “Precious”, which some are calling the worst depiction of black life yet done help to perpetuate these black myths and stereotypes? What are your real thoughts about welfare, public assistance or TANF? Should we crackdown on these “horrible” little welfare cheats and ignore these obscure and greedy Corporate Welfare Queens that pillage the American treasury with every chance they get? Each year, U.S. taxpayers subsidize U.S. businesses to the tune of almost $125 billion, the equivalent of all the income tax paid by 60 million individuals and families! In these hard economic times, would you accept food stamps if you really needed them or are you to proud? Why are so many people from so called “affluent neighborhoods” applying for public assistance as never before? Would you accept a little help, if you could get it? Why does welfare spell farewell to productive living for so many?
