Thank you for the link, but you do realize that it did not dispel my stats. I have never talked about the welfare queen in my post. I merely said that overall, there is a much greater percentage of Blacks on welfare, compared to Whites, FACTORING IN EACH RACE'S TOTAL REPRESENTATION OF THE POPULATION. As for the stats about White suburbanites, I had an experience in the 'burbs with a Hispanic couple and their two kids in front of me at the grocery store. They presented a LINK card and took their groceries. When I was done and was in the parking lot unlocking my BIKE, I saw the woman on a cell phone and her hubby loading the groceries into an SUV that looked to be late model and costing around $30K! What's wrong with this picture?
There is nothing wrong with that picture! Since when do we have to sell all our possessions to be on welfare or food stamps? Since i'm on disability, and have to get food stamps since disability doesn't pay enough, I'm supposed to sell my bmw, get rid of my flat screen tvs? throw away my $5000 Alienware laptop? So what you are saying is, all those middle class families that lost jobs and investments and now are on food stamps and welfare should not be permitted on welfare until they sell EVERY ASSET they own?! I wear name brand clothes, have the most expensive of electronics in my house. I am on food stamps. And what's the problem? I'm not allowed to have nice things because i need food stamps? I pay less for my name brand items than any average family NOT on assistance. I build better computer systems than any market. Yet I'm not allowed to have these things because you have an ignorant mindset of how I'm supposed to live on welfare.
Your judgmental attitude is just as racist as those high income bigots that talk down to a welfare recipient w an iPhone. Unless you know how they acquired that iPhone, like new car, nice house, you are nothing more than a bigoted, judgmental, ignorant person.

more whites are on welfare. That's a true statement and a fact. It's not inaccurate
Race: About 1 in 4 Black mothers of childbearing ages (1.5 million) were AFDC recipients, higher than the 7 percent of corresponding White mothers (2.1 million). Despite these differences in recipiency rates, Black AFDC mothers did not have significantly more children than their White
http://www.census.gov/population/socdemo/stat...
unless you failed 2nd grade math, you do know 2.1 million is more than 1.5 million
You must have failed 2nd grade entirely if you think that white women have more children and draw more welfare than blacks. If you need an example come to eastern nc and ride around for about 3 minutes. All the whites are working trying to make enough money to survive on their own and pay 50% of their wages to the ones that are sitting on the porches and swiping there ebt cards til they melt. Or better yet go down mlk blvd on check day and look at the streets littered with lottery tickets and then 3 days later they are all broke and crying to uncle sam with their hands out. The sad part is they get what they want, but everybody that doesnt live in a infested area such as the southeastern us think everybody is racist. Its a sad day in paradise

Listen to your own garbage and then come back and tell meif you actually believe in such stupidity?

Have you ever heard of typographical errors? of course you haven't because you're not smart enough!!!

Why would a bunch of old crusty white men lie on other white men, white women, white children and old white men & women, saying their on welfare, because they want to make them look bad??? Give this universe a break from YOUR STUPID!!!

ONLY 105 BILLION? That sure seems like a lot to me. I think it's all too much spending. Does that 105 billion include al of the health care they receive? And free lunches at school etc...?

Before anyone cries "racist," keep in mind my prior post: there are reasons why the Black community may have a greater representation in this list. But what I was trying to accomplish was to get some of these posters to stop parroting the same old squawk: "More Whites are on welfare." Either they really don't get how stats work or they are deliberately being deceptive.
Agree! Only 150 years separated by slavery a merely 60 years separated by school integration. Yet Blacks struggled from the hardships that kept them down from centuries.On the same token, they(Sons and daughters of segregationists and their domestic terrorist organizations) are doing the same thing with the first African-American President.

The problem with black people in America is the hip-hop culture. Black kids who read and speak properly are put down and bullied. Acting "white" and being a productive member of society is frowned at. Many black families have broken away from the projects and gotten away from this backwards thinking, but not nearly enough. Until top selling rap artists are singing about getting a good education and a good job, and idiots like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson stop race baiting and trying to say all white people are still racist blacks are going to have the same problems. Besides the welfare statistics look at abortion statistics. Out of every 1,000 black pregnancies 501 end in abortion. That's just crazy!!! Live and learn!

Nothing is wrong with the picture. Did you consider they bought the car a few years ago and may have lost their jobs since then? Of course not. Because you are too narrow minded. My wife and I both lost our jobs within weeks of each other and were out of work for nearly 18 months. We are now both working, but at salaries nearly 40% and 60% less respectively. Meanwhile our former bosses are doing just fine with hinge bonuses. One of my colleagues at my new job is a recently retired airline pilot with a pension of only $1,357/month. It SHOULD have been $12,500/month for his 35 years of service, but their past CEO, Mr. Tilton, convinced the Bush appointed Labor Board that the pilot union's $3.3 BILLION DOLLAR pension should go back to UAL for their merger. In exchange, Mr. Tilton received a $56MM dollar CASH bonus and $35MM dollar stock options. All while telling the pilot union heads they should have gone to CEO school instead of pilot school
Keep it classy.

The raw numbers mean everything. When you profess to be the largest group in America you will have more of everything. Stats are used to push one’s own theory or agenda. There are more White people on welfare, unemployment, getting abortions, having children out of wedlock, cheating the government and in prison exc... I could go on all day but I don't think it would clear things up for the brain washed whites who have received welfare in some shape or form and still would say "there are more black people on Welfare look at the stats". lol and smh. Look at the raw numbers......... Whites benefit from Welfare far more than Blacks. Why you ask? Because more of you are on it based on the raw numbers.

Black American after slavery had to work vey hard to take care of our families as we did not qualify for government assistance. While White women were home with there children, Black women were working along side their husbands for their families. Black people have not taken from the welfare system nearly as long as whites. It was not made for black people. Some Blacks have become very Americanized (on Welfare like Whites, getting abortions like Whites and resorting to criminal behavior like Whites since the 1960's but most of us are hard working people that take care of ourselves.

The average American is just tired of supporting an entire culture of lazy people. Just parked my car a few minutes ago and the car next to me was a black family. Guess what? They threw an entire McDonald's bag of trash out the window. Lovely. No respect for anything. It is out of control.

No excuses 50 years later. All is available for them. They would just rather collect free government welfare and watch their flat screen TV's. My challenge to anyone who is not sick of the black American culture should spend a week in or near a black community. You will be sickened. Florida has been ruined because of blacks. Absolutely ruined. Ocean front section 8 housing just for them. Horrible. BTW. I'm not racist. I make points based upon statistics and real experiences. Now let's just sit back and watch them kill each other because everyone is afraid to tell the truth and make them get their act together. shhhhh you might be called a racist.

Plan for welfare. Specifically for the black community..
1. If your kid drops out of school = no more welfare
2. Your assets are reviewed annually. If you have luxury items such as a BMW, 5K rims, 50" Flat Screens = No need for welfare
3. Your kids commit a crime you are now on the 3 strike rule = 3rd strike is no more welfare
3. You commit a crime you are required to attend offender training classes = if you don't go you loose your welfare
4. Birth on welfare will not result in decreased benefits
5. Section 8 housing can't have cable TV, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances or wall to wall carpeting
6. Welfare is limited to 3 years no matter what

DONE... DONE & DONE.

"Most" is not statistically accurate. You sound like a smart person. Do you know the statistical information? Stand up and make a point to your race and make positive change. Do you even know of a live person who was a slave? Do you know of a person's parent that was a slave? Come on now.

I say let's give in to the racist excuse. Let's all agree that we are racist even if we are not. That's what they want so lets give it to them. What the heck can they do? Not cash their welfare check? There is confusion between racism and reality based upon statistical information.

I agree. Anyone who doesn't, needs to experience the black community for just a few minutes. HOLD UP. Don't do it, you will get shot. OOOOOOPS that's racist isn't it.

The Economix blog at the New York Times reported the following in February of last year:

Another finding of the study is that the distribution of benefits no longer aligns with the demography of poverty. African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.

White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

Read that again. It says blacks comprise 22 percent of the poor, but blacks only take in 14 percent of government benefits. Conversely, whites make up 42 percent of the poor , but take in a disproportionate 69 percent of government benefits.

CASE CLOSED AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
