Were Mostly African Americans Shown in Line for Food Benefits?

7 Sep

DisasterRelief - Chicago Breaking News

A caller on Am 1690 WVON in Chicago pointed out that each time Chicago news stations showed images of people in long lines waiting for food benefits that were provided by FEMA, most of them were African Americans as evidenced by this photo.  Since I only watch the news sporadically, I have no opinion on this.  However, I would like to ask people who actually viewed the report:

  1. Did you mostly see African Americans waiting in long lines for food benefits?
  2. Where there facilities located in non-African American communities  accepting applications?
  3. If you did see mostly African Americans, how did that affect your opinion what them as a group?

Please share your thoughts.
