阿尔岱是密西西比州的一位共和党议员,曾经向一位记者表示他家乡密西西比沃尔斯镇上所有的黑人都没工作,全部依赖食品券过活。上周,他为此言论向公众道歉。阿尔岱议员向密西西比州一家报社 – 《军号集录报》的记者说道:“我家乡小镇上所有的黑人都靠食品券过活,我把食品券叫做:‘疯狂的福利支票’,那些黑人根本不工作。”从全国范围来看,美国补充营养协助计划的援助对象大部分都是白人。根据美国农业部2013年的数据显示,40.2%的食品援助对象是白人,25.7%黑人,10.3%西班牙裔,2.1%亚裔,1.2%美国土著。

WASHINGTON — Gene Alday, a Republican member of the Mississippi state legislature, apologized last week for telling a reporter that all the African-Americans in his hometown of Walls, Mississippi, are unemployed and on food stamps.

华盛顿 – 吉恩﹒阿尔岱是密西西比州的一位共和党议员,曾经向一位记者表示他家乡密西西比沃尔斯镇上所有的黑人都没工作,全部依赖食品券过活。上周,他为此言论向公众道歉。

“I come from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call ‘welfare crazy checks,'” Alday said to a reporter for The Clarion-Ledger, a Mississippi newspaper, earlier this month. “They don’t work.”

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, 25.7 percent are black, 10.3 percent are Hispanic, 2.1 percent are Asian and 1.2 percent are Native American.

从全国范围来看,美国补充营养协助计划的援助对象大部分都是白人。根据美国农业部2013年的数据显示,40.2%的食品援助对象是白人,25.7%黑人,10.3%西班牙裔,2.1%亚裔,1.2%美国土著。

In the two congressional districts that overlap Alday’s state legislature district, more African-Americans than whites receive food stamps, according to USDA data.

根据美国农业部的数据,有两个国会选区,包括阿尔岱议员所在的选区,领取食品券的黑人比白人多。

Twenty-three million households and 47 million Americans received benefits on an average month in 2013; enrollment declined slightly to 22 million households and 46 million individuals in 2014. Three-quarters of those households included a child, an elderly person or someone with a disability. The average monthly benefit per household was $274 in 2013 and $256 last year.

2013年,平均每月有2300万个家庭,4700万美国人接受食品援助;2014年,人数稍有下降,为每月2200万个家庭,4600万美国人。其中有四分之三的家庭成员至少包括一位儿童、老人或残障人士。2013年,每月平均援助费用为274美元;2014年则为256美元。

Republicans are conducting a review of nutrition assistance with an eye toward figuring out how to nudge more people into the workforce. In recent years Republicans have lamented that a growing share of recipients are able-bodied adults without children — a group that made up 10.2 percent of beneficiaries in 2011, up from 6.6 percent before the onset of the Great Recession in 2007. (The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities estimates that 1 million people will be kicked off the rolls by next year as states reimpose time limits on childless, non-disabled adults.)

共和党人正在对营养协助计划进行评估,着眼于推动更多的人参与就业。最近几年,共和党人开始哀叹身体健全的单身成年人在食品援助计划中所占的比重正逐渐增加 – 2011年,他们占总人数的10.2%,比2007年经济危机开始时的数字6.6%有所增长。(预算和政策中心估计明年将有100万人将被踢出食品援助计划的名单,因为各州政府将重新设定身体健全的单身成年人接受食品援助的时限。)

Nearly one-third of food stamp beneficiaries lived in a household where at least one member had some earned income in 2013. Different states have different eligibility rules for the program, but federal law puts the upper income limit at 200 percent of the poverty line, currently $20,090 for a family of three. Many SNAP recipients qualify based on their participation in another means-tested program, such as Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

2013年,约三分之一的食品券受惠人所在的家庭至少有一位成员有收入。各州对于食品援助对象的资格有不同规定,但根据联邦法律,援助对象的收入上限为贫困线的两倍,目前为三口之家20,090美元。许多食品援助计划的受惠人是因为参加了其他援助资格调查项目,如医疗补助计划或临时资助贫困家庭计划才有资格获得食品援助的。

This is of course old news, and yet the perception that the typical food stamp recipient is black persists. Blacks do receive a much larger percentage of food stamps in relation to their proportion of the population, and poverty in the black community is something that needs to be addressed. However, in order to have an honest, productive conversation about how to do that, we have to dispel these myths about who is receiving aid, why, and in what amounts.

这可不是什么新鲜事,‘领食品券的大部分是黑人’这种观点根深蒂固。根据美国黑人在全国人口中所占的比重,他们领食品券的人数的确比较多,黑人社区的贫困问题急需解决。当然,实话实说,谈到如何切实解决这些问题,我们不得不把谁在领援助、领援助的原因和数量摊开来说。

25% plus of the stamps to a demographic of less than 13% of the population seems pretty telling.

占全部人口不到13%的(黑人)领食品券的比例超过25%,这已经说明了一切。

 

David Bernard · University of the West Indies · February 28 at 6:02am +674
There is a segment of the population that wants to build a narrative that it’s mostly black people on Food Stamps, so that they can get rid of the program. Some people honestly believe blacks vote Democrat because they want welfare. It’s all part of a larger (racist) narrative, unfortunately.

有一小部分人希望给人一种印象,即大部分领用食品券的是黑人,这样他们就可以把食品援助计划丢进垃圾堆里。一些人真的相信黑人会给皿煮党人投票,因为黑人想要福利。不幸的是,这也是(种族)偏见的一部分。

Malcolm May yes we get that. and that is the point. Plenty of whities hey Malcom.

回答上上楼:是的,我们知道的。那才是关键,白人太多了。

    • 其实食品消费卷出发点是好的,但是说白了还是避免不了出现这个情况,冒领,多领等等。人性的自私,当然也有你说的还有懒鬼

    • 主要是为了避免出现美国饿死人的情况 那样很丢人 因而出现的一种慈善制度 钱都是社会捐助的 或者食品公司直接捐助 一个家庭每月收入少于1400美元就可以领 主要就是三类 主食 也就是面包了 蔬菜 补充维生素的 还有甜品 补充热量 一般都是巧克力 面包管饱 蔬菜巧克力每人限量一般都是2份

    • 相当于低保,之所以不发钱而是发食品券是为了防止这些人拿钱去买酒买毒品买药物(药物上瘾的人),不过这些人有相应的对策,就是折价卖出食品券换现金比如100元的食品券卖85元套现,当然这样做是违法的。

  1. 看到白美国人和黑美国人吵个没完,我倒有个注意,不如来个民主的生死决斗,活下来的就拿懒鬼券。多好!不过说正经的,看到美国出现内部矛盾加剧的苗头倒是个好事。

    美帝公民真单纯。。。这是已经说明了一切。。。但你所谓看见的一切只是表面。。。本质呢。。。 [挖鼻屎]

  3. 阿尔岱是密西西比州的一位共和党议员,曾经向一位记者表示他家乡密西西比沃尔斯镇上所有的黑人都没工作,全部依赖食品券过活。上周,他为此言论向公众道歉。

    这就是伟大的美帝公民靠伟大的制度选出来的伟大的货。。。这货的智商能赶上村支书,但能和镇上的官僚比吗。。。 [挖鼻屎]

  4. 这就是伟大的美帝公民。。。他们分析了从地板砖,种族到两党相争的各种说法。。。 [挖鼻屎]

    但是就没有一个人认为公民需要工作,国家应该提供一份工作,而不是食品卷,哪怕是低工资,不满意的工作,公民也要靠自己劳动养活自己。。。 [挖鼻屎]

    这就是皿煮的伟大之处。。。只要爷不愿意工作。。。国家就得养着俺。。。难怪国内有些货哭着喊着要皿煮呢。。。 [挖鼻屎]

  5. 建议看不惯祖国的人,去美国领取食品券,多好啊。给我们腾出空间,而这些人渣就是不走,或者通俗的说:根本就是没有这个能力。 有些垃圾去了美国,还是要回国内挣钱。原因是:融入不了美国

  6. 连老美都有计划生育的想法啦!!很多人都抨击计划生育这一政策,却忽略了这一政策出台的背景,养不活、养不好生太多真是社会的一种负担。
