Here are the facts. On Septmeber 11, 2011, a non-black woman named Amanda Clayton won $1 million in the Michigan State Lottery. Before receiving her winnings, the 24-year-old mother of two brought in $200 per month in food stamps. After receiving her seven-figure-check, Amanda continued to receive her monthly food stamps because she remained unemployed.
In light of Amandaâ€™s carefree actions, itâ€™s clear that taking advantage of Americaâ€™s welfare system is not race specific. Itâ€™s a recession, so it looks like everyone is looking for a way to survive.
