Yes, the U.S. Government Gave Away FREE STUFF!...
to white Americans.
How many times have the ignoranti -- people who know little to nothing about U.S. history -- accused African-Americans of wanting and getting "free stuff" from the U.S. government?
The trouble with what the ignoranti claim is that they don't know about or fail to acknowledge the millions and millions of dollars of "free stuff" white people got from the government. I would say that it's white privilege that allows white people to accuse African-Americans of seeking hand-outs from their government while completely ignoring the enormous hand-outs their forebears received that helped them get a head start in creating wealth for their future generations.
