Description: 

"People got to have something to eat. Welfare is for those that can't work. The government know that some peoples can't take care of theirselves.

"People got to have something to eat. Welfare is for those that can't work. The government know that some peoples can't take care of theirselves. The problem is that some of them that could work take advantage of the welfare. All colors go, there's all kinds need it. I made the inside of the welfare office a light color to symbolize comfort. Outside is dark. There ain't much out there for some peoples."
