Mississippi: The Color of EBT


Here’s another excerpt from Chuck Thompson’s Better Off Without ‘Em: A Northern Manifesto for Southern Secession which is part of a roundtable discussion on secession with James C. Cobb, an eminent Southern historian at UGA, and author of Away Down South: A History of Southern Identity:

“You’d see a severe shrinkage of the welfare system,” said Cobb. “We’re going to give all of them [welfare recipients] cheap bus tickets to your part of the country. That’s what they did in Mississippi in World War II. Gave them all bus tickets to Chicago and information on how to get welfare.”

“Deporting poor people sounds like a Cuban solution to the problem,” I say, acknowledging Cobb’s half joke.

“Southerners don’t mind spending if it’s on defense,” responds Cobb. “The Department of Southern Defense would be the largest employer in the South. The fact is, there is a general willingness to operate on a small tax base. Part of that is because we’re living too much now off the federal government.”

SBPDL has been reporting on the legacy of “Manifest Destruction” in Chicago. Specifically, what might happen to African-Americans in, say, an independent Mississippi in the aftermath of The Day The EBT Card Quit Working?

In Mississippi’s First Congressional District, which is 70.5% White, 12% of households were SNAP EBT card users in 2010. Of those, 54.9% of SNAP EBT users were African-Americans.

In Mississippi’s Second Congressional District, which is 35% White, 21% of households were SNAP EBT card users in 2010. Of those, 90.2% of SNAP EBT users were African-Americans.

In Mississippi’s Third Congressional District, which is 64.2% White, 12% of households were SNAP EBT card users in 2010. Of those, 68% of SNAP EBT users were African-Americans.

In Mississippi’s Fourth Congressional District, which is 75.3% White, 11% of households were SNAP EBT card users in 2010. Of those, 49.3% of SNAP EBT users were African-Americans.

The Color of EBT in Mississippi is BLACK: 63% of EBT card users are African-American. In total, I found that around 156,500 of 404,728 African-American households in Mississippi (39 percent) would be impacted by The Day The EBT Card Quit Working.

Update: In 2010, the federal government spent $848 million dollars on SNAP EBT in Mississippi, which is more than the salaries and wages of Mississippians serving in the Navy and Air Force.

Note: In 2010, there were 247,947 households in Mississippi using SNAP EBT. In 2012, there were 296,508 households on SNAP EBT, so it is reasonable to assume that at at least 40% to 45% of African-American households in Mississippi are now EBT card users.

  1. As I always said,niggers would perish if whites cease to exist..nobody still has named me one country that’s black ran that isn’t a third world toilet..name one nigger made car.sorry,cadillac was made by da whiteman..

  2. We have a clown elite, they are so stupid that if you tell them that the fattest and dumbest of the MS citizens are black they go with their cow face. We are literally ruled by morons that god has gifted with a few good lines which jibe with our rapidly fading christian morality, and that is it.

  3. The thought of the yankees being saddled with the blacks and this other racial trash is enough to stir my soul to joy. Turn New England into one giant open cesspit with these yankees joining hands with their beloved colored breathern and singing kumbya to their hearts content. Meantime we can build a walled and mined zone around the free south say like the one on the old inter-German border that will keep the plague from ever coming back.

  4. So the welfare that the South gets is primarily going to blacks?

    This reminds me that if you had a significantly more homogenous white population the less gifted whites could and would be taken care of and that smarter whites could see resources directed to enrich education properly. the top twenty percent of whites ought to get a heavily subsidized BA or BSc. Especially if they are poor. Niggers ought to be cut loose.

  5. A small request:

    Please suggests Vermount and Deleware, New Haven Connecticut, Cambridge Mass as the places the Independent South will send their Black welfare recipients, not my Chicago.

    There are solid Whites here just trying to survive, we’ve suffered the Black Plague since World War I. Vermount and Deleware haven’t suffered yet. and Harvard and Yale are big time, powerful enemies of the South, not regular White folks in Chicago.

  6. Liberals love saying that the average IQ in the red state of Mississippi is the lowest in the country and that Mississippi soaks up the welfare. Mommy Professor says IQ is meaningless and using welfare shouldn’t be held against a demographic group, but they say it anyway.

    It’s a great talking point for them because they know that no respectable conservative is going to explain why.

  7. As far as I’m concerned they can take whichever bus they desire to be on but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Illinois as much as I would New England, as it’s two most famous sons have endeared it to my heart forever. I only hope I live long enough to assist with the eastbound flood from Kansas City and St. Louis and the northbound from Memphis.

    Sorry but without SCV documentation no refugees accepted.

  8. The test for aspiring white refugees is simple: lash a negro. You want in mr and mrs smith? In order to prove you aren’t a new england liberal, you must carry out the sentence on a convicted black criminal we have chained in the basement. Deliver 10 lashes each to kunte kinte or tyrone or whatever his name is and you’re free to settlein the dixie republic

  9. As I have said many time, look at:

    Covington, KY vs. Cincinnati, OH
    Weirton, WV vs. Steubenville, OH

    blacks end up in Ohio because welfare pays better there than in surrounding states.

  10. YT: The test for aspiring white refugees is simple: lash a negro.

    I’m having a hard time seeing a downside here. What’s the catch? The “person of color” in the woodpile?

  11. ” Meantime we can build a walled and mined zone around the free south say like the one on the old inter-German border that will keep the plague from ever coming back.”

    Hire this man as Sect’y of the Interior in Dixie 2.0!

    Except, of course, everyone wanted OUT of E. Germany, while everyone wants IN in an all-White Republic.


    Once we get that idea implanted in our little kiddies’ brains, it will be easier to spot the ‘Other’ and act accordingly.

    As to welfare, I have NO problems with a small taxation on my income to help out my NEIGHBOR (like ethnos/race) in MY town, while he is down and out.

    But the limits to that charity stop at: a) his melanin count -“your kind don’t belong here, move on”- or deport the bastard (illegal/immoral birth), b) duration of time out of work (18 months max, preferably 9 months…due to; c) inability or non-desire to be trained at some other job, if he cannot find work in his field (in other words, becoming ‘redundant’ is not an option, as long as there is SOMETHING one can do- even if it is street-sweeper; if not, deport to Yankeedom) d) directing/channeling charity through the various churches (not synagogues, temples to Vishnu, or ‘Islamic centers’) much as Bush, 2 envisioned with his ‘private distributors of charity,’ and e) ‘He who will not work, shall not eat.’

    Something like that. “tough love” and “love thy neighbor” having the meaning, ‘one like unto thy brethren’ – and not an indiscriminate ‘rainbow’ vision of Hell on earth.

  12. You cite all the correct statistics & sources when I could have saved you the time & effort by sending a pic from my phone, taken at any given grocery store here… or from the line at the County Assistance Office… or the WIC Distribution Center…or the line at Foot Locker.
