Yvan Lamothe, an African-American man, addressed Newt Gingrich‘s comments on African Americans, the NAACP and food stamps at a recent town hall meeting in New Hampshire.

Gingrich had previously said that Black people “should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps.”

The Huffington Post reports:

“My point is, about a week ago — some time ago — you mentioned that black people should be able to earn a paycheck, not be on welfare, implying that black people in general are on welfare,” said Lamothe. “And I really took exception to that because it demeans my accomplishments, my hard work, because I have worked all my life. I have never been on welfare. You know about history. You know that back in the 1930s, Hitler started talking in Germany about a Jewish problem. My question to you is, do you think that blacks represent an American problem, and if you don’t think that, will you stop using blacks in general as a stepping stone or a punching bag?”
