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

You're still not looking at the numbers proportionally. Of course whites comprise the bulk of the aforementioned since they make up 63.7% of the population. In other words, if there were the same amount of blacks to whites, they'd dwarf Caucasians in every single category. Hence, the operative word is proportionally.

Dr. Ben Carson faced off, so to speak, with Jesse Jackson the other night.
Dr. Carson:“If you take race out of the issue altogether and you take a group of young men and you raise them with no respect for authority, not learning to take on personal responsibility, having easy access to drugs and alcohol, they’re very likely to end up as victims of violence and incarceration. Has nothing to do with race"
He ended with this statement: "Some of the worn-out policies of the do-gooders have not helped the community."
Dr. Carson is a welcomed voice of reason but many more are needed to get this message through.
IF YOU SHOOT THEM THEY WILL COME...

He makes perfect sense to those with even remote gumption. His inference is that Obama continues to point the finger at Bush as if he were still in office.

Race, Crime and Statistical Malpractice: How the Right Manipulates White Fear With Bogus Data
Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002). This means that only 1 in every 500,000 white people will be murdered by a black person in a given year. Although the numbers of black-on-white homicides are higher than the reverse (447 to 218 in 2010), the 218 black victims of white murderers is actually a higher percentage of the black population interracially killed than the 447 white victims of black murderers as a percentage of the white population. In fact, any given black person is 2.75 times as likely to be murdered by a white person as any given white person is to be murdered by an African American.

You shouldn't cite the white on white murder rate when the black ratio is just as alarming. Those who live in glass houses..........

Barack O. presses death squad button on Benedictus Dei
Just about the only person in the united states not to bow his/her head in the humble respect of Benedictus Dei divine present harbours personal demon.
Apparently the president has manic episodes at the very mention of his name.
But the envy to his divine grace does not stop there, he has gone full hock and matured a project death with David Cameron British Prime Minister.
That he (Benedictus Dei) will dissentiavised at all cost at any available moment.

It will be interesting to learn why Westerners are joining up with jihadists in the Middle East.
They're not going there to party or to get laid, and for the sheer excitement seems improbable for there isn't much excitement__at least not enough to keep most young men interested.
Turns out that a good friend of McCain's traveled to Somalia where he died fighting for basically nothing beyond the fun of dying LOL.
Turns out that some of these Westerners are not even religious.
I think they're getting recruited in jails and prisons; lost losers wanting to belong to something.

YOUR ABILITY TO COMPARTMENTALIZE IS SHOCKING AND AWESOME... THERE MUST BE SOME WAY OF PENETRATING THAT THICK ORIENTAL SKULL OF YOURS - OTHER THAN ORALLY, OF COURSE.... I'VE GOT IT! LET'S SAY A FELLOW STARTED OFF HIS PRESIDENCY WITH THE INTENTION OF DESTROYING THE INSTITUTION OF GOVERNMENT FOREVER... WHAT IF THAT WAS THE IDEA AT THE OUTSET OF HIS FIRST TERM AND EVERYTHING HE DID WAS DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE THAT GOAL... WHAT ABOUT THEN, MUGGLES? CAN YOU SEE HOW SOMEONE WITH THAT VERY GOAL MIGHT AFFECT EVERYONE AND EVERY THING THAT CAME AFTER HIM FOR DECADES?... CAN YOU SEE THAT SCENARIO MUGGLES? WHAT IF A PRESIDENT SET OUT WITH THE GOAL OF CREATING A DESTRUCTIVE LEGACY... MIGHTN'T THAT HAVE A LONG-LASTING IMPACT, SWEETIE?... HMMMM?...

Hey dumbo Mugsy.....So are liberals smarter? Kanazawa quotes from two surveys that support the hypothesis that liberals are more intelligent. One is the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, which is often called Add Health. The other is the General Social Survey (GSS). The Add Health study shows that the mean IQ of adolescents who identify themselves as "very liberal" is 106, compared with a mean IQ of 95 for those calling themselves "very conservative." The Add Health study is huge — more than 20,000 kids — and this difference is highly statistically significant.
While I'm impressed that you're able to cite obscure sources, I'd like to know what your point is? What does that have to do with ideology and the size of government? By the way, I can find many veritable studies to refute your implication. However, I'm not sure what IQ has to do with anything?

Last time I checked, there was bipartisan support for the war. Bush even understands what a tripartite government is all about.

Barack O. blinks first in Benedictus Dei head to head.
Barack O. has demonised and outcasted united states in the opinion of the cosmic imperial senate (which Benedictus is president) and made US citizens lepers in their own towns with a further eternal damnation order that makes US liable to severe penalties and financial ruin.
