Though blacks are disproportionately represented among food stamp recipients, far more whites receive such assistance. When recipients identified themselves by race in 2010, 34 percent were white, 22 percent were black and 16 were percent Hispanic, the Agriculture Department saidRogue Scholar 05 wrote:

Prior to the mid-1960's most blacks were Republicans.
Well, I said you re-enslaved the blacks. What percentage of blacks were living in poverty in 1960? How about today?
Well, in 1960 23% of all blacks were in poverty and that by 2010 (last record) it was 26.7%. And ya know what the difference is? Over 33% of all blacks are on welfare. Yep, you Democrats have really improved the lives of black people all righty!
But all ghetto people know is that they get money from Democrats so they are happy living in ghettos.
Of families receiving TANF help in 2009, 33 percent were African-American, 31 percent were white and 29 percent were Hispanic.
Somehow Rogue concludes that 33 percent of the welfare role is 33 percent of a whole community yet the 31 percent and 29 percent respectively that comprises the other two communities is not.
Surely Rogue doesn’t think that 31 percent of the whites that make up welfare role are 31 percent of whole so why does he think it of blacks.
Is this some new form of Rogue math?
