    Newt Gingrich, a candidate for the Republican nomination to be president of the US, is under attack for comments he has made this week about African Americans and government benefits for the poor, called food stamps.

    Critics say the comments were racially charged, and that other Republican candidates have made similar comments while on the campaign trail.
