unless you failed 2nd grade math, you do know 2.1 million is more than 1.5 million
that's the mother on welfare statistics. you know it doesn't include foreign male immigrant's right? which you know to be honest could be a larger portion of immigrant's. seeing as alot of immigrants are either black or spanish speaking or of middle eastern descent (aka mostly minorities). If you wanna know the population of Africans in Africa. Probably beats out a majority of countries besides China and Asia. Africa receive's aid from multiple European countries as well as america.

With regard to AFDC the figures are:

Hispanic 15.7
Asian 2.4
other 3.3
To break down these numbers, we look at how many Whites are in the population as a WHOLE. If Blacks make up less 14% of the population and are almost 40% of all receipients, then they represent about 2.5 times their actual population. Since Whites are over 50% of the total US pop., they represent less than their overall piece of the pie, population-wise. Hispanics are at least 15% of the general population, so they take only about as much as what their population represents. Why am I writing this? Because I am tired of the misrepresentations on this issue. I read so many on here claiming that more Whites are on welfare than Blacks (true, in terms of raw numbers), yet not accounting for the fact that there are over 4X as many Whites in this country than Blacks! In statistics, you cannot go by mere numbers. Only if the playing field is exactly equal, which is rarely is! This thread was started, not to be racist, but to keep it real. After all, there are some legitimate reasons for Blacks to be on welfare more than Whites. But the worst thing anyone can do is be in denial.


This is the truth, and furthermore we send aid to more than just Israel. I see people saying oh but we send so much money to Israel. They're trying to divert the topic of who is on welfare. To be honest SSI isn't shit unless you get some kind of court settlement for damages AKA: something the sue-happy generation is familiar with. Currently for being Schizoid i get 800 bucks a month to cover everything. People argue that SSI is a large portion of tax payers money. So basically what they're saying is welfare isn't a problem. Well hate to break it to you but a lot of people are on SSI for mental illness or disability. 1 in 5 people today have a mental illness or so recorded as of recent. Now seeing as 1 in 5 is a real fucking big amount of people. Even without all being diagnosed and processed and given SSI. So before we go on to mental illness and SSI further... I'd like to say: Africa is a big fucking portion of the world's population. America sent countless dollars to Africa in the past. Wherein it be in support or war efforts to save refugee's. Mostly refugee's from warlords stockpiling food and resources and killing their own. Europe is another big collection of nations that has poured countless money down Africa's throat metaphorically speaking. I agree that war and slavery has a factor on this point i have been making. Seeing as Africa still contains such a large portion of the worlds population. Despite aids and other diseases and starvation as well as their past with slavery and war as formerly mentioned. I wouldn't say they're doing good, but they're sure costing a lot of money and it isn't stopping anytime soon. Since the United States founding Europe has been pouring in emigrants to our nation. This could explain why there's so many white people in america obviously. It wasn't until recently historically speaking that we started letting in just about everyone. So in a predominantly white nation it only makes sense that white women have more babies. If we want to talk about how many newborns come from certain race should i bring up Africa again? Or i could bring up china.. so would your point be that in a predominantly -insert race of choice- culture they shouldn't have so many babies? Well China just got that memo apparently after spawning their 1.3 billion. Or Africa with nearly 1 billion people. White people have been pretty good as far as mass spawning goes. Not considering the many Europeans that died in WW2 or long ago from the black plague and how many of us there may have been now. My point is this: Don't point the blame or the shame on any one person/race, we all fucked ourselves over as any species ever has. We're no different from a cell that over-multiplies into a parasite.

Since the superior white race controls our lives and causes us blacks people so much mental distress why don't we save up money, leave the United States and move to a non-white nation? There are many of them in the continent of Africa, especially the countries of South Africa or Nigeria. Another great choice is Brazil which has a great culture for blacks. In the U.S. there’s also places like Detroit and Gary, Indiana where ywe could live in all black neighborhoods and never even see a white person.

Let White American tax dollars fund the other white Americans who are in need of welfare or assistance.
Let the Black American tax dollars fund the other Black Americans who are in need of welfare or assistance.
This should work just fine..... Right?

how you going to say numbers do not matter when we are talking about how much money it cost us do the math 4 is more than 2 so when you multiply each number by 1 for is still the bigger number.

I think we can all agree that regardless of color, the govenrment should use these dollars to encourage families to stick together, and not create a system where it is more beneficial to have multiple children out of wedlock. Government housing should have a strict time limit, extra incentives to graduate high school and stay felony free.
As far as farm subsidies, as long as the Euros do it, we have to (gotta stay competitive)
I agree but That's the thing though. The govt isn't trying to help. Idek what they are trying to do. For example CAPS. If you want to go to a four year university the govt won't help, but if you want to go to some whack ass two year college then yea they will help. Why not help them through college if your intentions are to truly help?

Thank you. I don't know if the jerks on this site are butt holes or just don't believe. If everyone is so concerned with helping then help. Seems like everyone has their own motives; to make themselves feel better.

So apparently everyone here would rather have 50% of ten dollars than 30% of a thousand dollars because the percentage is higher. Well more power to you.

Drop and/or torse out the window this being in denial thing when whites are the BEST in knowing how to do just that...to be in denial. The government is a high source of racism and lies no more then the media; when it comes to ppl of color. Whole onto your belief and trusting in the government for that is your right. However- a person of color, wisdom, and insight on truth, trust, and lies knows better.

And just how many of those white mothers have children of mixed race, either black or hispanic. To be accurate, the race of the father should be considered also. Wanna bet the totals don't flip if both parents are considered???

Nationally, 70% of food stamp recipients are white, while the figure is 84% in Iowa.
So why would anyone play the race card to portray food stamp use a black phenomenon?

Americans on Food Stamps:

Whites - 34%
Blacks - 22%
Hispanics - 17%

Do u honestley believe Europeans ( whites) are the majority in this country? Smh looks like like ur facts are fudged chec the number of births daily in comparison to how man Europeans are having babies. Ur simply not reproducing fast enuff for that fact to be accurate. Not to mention census doesn't count the hundreds of thousands ushered into the prison systems. So it's not an accurate count. The fact is More Europeans are on welfare than any other demographic!#Fact

Talking math, finish the math don't stop halfway through. There is a bigger percent of blacks then whites. So more whites are on because there are more whites. Percentage wise there are more blacks. But my question to everyone who cares who is on welfare and not. Who cares what race is on it. I care about people who don't need it and are abusing it. Black and white.
