Gingrich to black people: paychecks, not food aid

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he is willing to go before the NAACP and urge blacks to demand paychecks, not food stamps.

The former House speaker told a town hall meeting Thursday in New Hampshire that if the NAACP invites him to its annual convention this year, he’d deliver that message.

Gingrich routinely lambasts President Barack Obama as the best food stamp president in American history.

Gingrich says he’d also pitch a new Social Security program aimed at helping young African-American males. The former House speaker says they get the smallest return on Social Security.

The NAACP had no immediate comment on Gingrich’s remarks.
