These are 'po' folks' programs, not 'black' folks' programs. Your racism and ignorant use of stereotyping is amusing. Everyone who uses food stamps, medicaid, receives unemployment, took advantage of 'cash for clunker', and qualify for housing assistance is not 'black'. There are poor people of all races who sometimes need a helping hand. Most of them are not freeloaders. Stop putting all the poor and needy into the same socialist pool...many would rather work.
