Well... Some of this is "Regional"

For example in New York Puerto Ricans have lower income & higher poverty rates than African Americans.

But... Because so many Puerto Ricans live in the higher Income North-East & many Blacks still live in the lower income South.

Puerto Rican Americans factor our as higher income than African Americans even though across North-Eastern U.S cities Puerto Ricans are generally lower income than African Americans.

Is there a significant link for proof of this data? I'm not saying that it's a lie, but I would just like to assess the numbers myself. Overall, hispanics do..do better than black Americans in this country. I can see it everyday when I go outdoors and mingle with both groups. Hispanics seem and tend to have a bigger drive for success than blacks. Just my opinion. But every interesting information and very helpful OP.

Since when did owning a business, home or car determine a persons success? I know people who make six figures and do not own a business, home or a car.. not because they can't but because they prefer not to be in the business field, because they prefer to rent and because they prefer to use public transportation or simply walk.

I also know educators who are employed during the school year and are advised by their employer to apply for "unemployment" until the school year returns.

I wonder whether your percentages are even legit.

The success of anyone is GREAT, it shouldn't be classified by race. If you have to compare one race to another in order to make your's SEEM better then what does that say about you...

Just a thought.

There is not one "significant link". Each claim/fact has a separate source. I thought about posting all the sources, but since everyone says most sources provided are racist or biased, I decided to let people do their own research. A simple copy and paste of each claim into your favorite search engine should lead you in the right direction. I have neither the time nor the inclination to go back and find the sources. But rest assured. They are all accurate.

Fair enough OP and I do the same sometimes, allow people to do their own research depending on the title to the thread in fear they'll immediately label it racist or bias. I will do just that. However, the young lady above did mention some very important and factual statements. Not everyone wants to own a home, own their own business, etc. My bff is a college graduate of LSU and now working on her PhD with her new husband being an engineer being paid six figures per year. They are living together in an apartment, not a home. They both have vehicles though, but it's their choice(s). My man is an engineer as well, we live together, but we rent by choice. We're young anyway and saving, but you get my drift. The percentage for welfare isn't that much of a gap between the two when I thought it would be. I was a bit surprised by hispanics making up a large porportion of welfare recipients when so many of them do own businesses and attend college, etc.

Yes, there are people who make six figures and don't own a car and there are people that make seven figures that do.
There are people that make six figures and don't own a business and there are people that make 30k a year and do.

What's your point?

I am wary of people from Arizona who claim to have credible information on blacks seeing how Arizona's black population is so small. Plus, you did not post links but this is Topix so I am not surprised.

My POINT is.. that owning material things don't necessarily mean you are doing better than someone else.

Your the one who showed the differences between Hispanics and blacks owning businesses, homes and cars so I'm just telling you that there are unrecognized blacks who do not own all of those things that could.

To sum it all up, your little percentage outline is a load of cow dung.

No. You singled out a specific area of the country, whereas I focused on the whole. That made it off topic.

So my point is quite valid.

There are 13 million more Hispanics than Blacks in America. So Hispanics taking a smaller percentage of Welfare is quite significant.

Are you implying that people from Arizona do not have Internet access?

Feel free to do your own research.
