Hunger in America? Americans are so fat and rich, I assume that no one ever lacks food here. That's not exactly right. According to the General Social Survey, here are the percentages of those who have been unable to purchase food they needed sometime in the past year by sex and ethnicity:
Percent unable to buy food they needed (first men, then women in parentheses)
Blacks 6.9 (9.3)
Mexicans 7.1 (8.5)
American Indians 0.0 (12.3)
Germans 5.6 (5.5)
Scotts 2.4 (8.8)
USA 3.4 (5.6)
English/Welsh 2.4 (3.4)
Italians 0.0 (5.2)
Irish 2.9 (1.4)
