Well yeah more white do, we're the majority of the population. Dumbazz! White population is around 75% while black population around 13% sooo what does that tell you "business owner"?? Geez! I'll break it down in idiot terms, make them numbers smaller for you to understand. If white population is 20 people and 50% on welfare. That's 10 people. If the black population is 10 people and 50% is on welfare then that's 5 people. Better? But it also mean more whites are have jobs! Derrrr!! I hope you don't do your own taxes. Numbers don't seem to be your knack.
Quite good at numbers. Blacks make up 13 percent of the population. The percentage of blacks as a race on welfare is much higher than that of whites. You do the math. True more white people are on it. But the point is more blacks per capita are on it thans whites per capita.

Now you know for a black applicant it's under 1 name but has 15 dam kids under it. So it's actually 16 people on welfare being counted as one. Haha!

What a great idea, one of the most uneducated and poverished states wanting to become self-sustaining. How would we negotiate oil prices and defend ourselves? If we all break apart from the union we won't be indepentant for long. I'm sure China or some other leader will over throw us. Then black or white we will all be pickin Cotten. This time we will be calling Dun Van Tu " boss man".

Regardless of HOW you try and spin this, your white sisters and brothers benefit from welfare the most. We all including some blacks put that Regan created black face to welfare when're this is so far from the truth. Let me educate you all here. There are many types of welfare: Social Security, AFDC, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. But, many people prefer to put a Black face on welfare, instead of a White face.
The majority of Americans who receive welfare checks are not Black. The majority of those who receive welfare checks are White people.
Whites receive the lion’s share of welfare benefits, and they benefit in many ways at the expense of Black Americans.
According to the US Census"Social Security is the nation’s largest welfare program, although many Whites prefer to call it a retirement plan. What millions of Black Americans pay into the system ends up going to Whites who retire and Social Security is the biggest type of welfare. Some 61 percent of welfare recipients are White, while 33 percent are Black, according to 2000 Census Bureau statistics.The government writes retirement and disability benefit checks to 35.4 million recipients of whom 88.7 percent are White and 9.6 percent are Black. The reason behind this shocking disparity is perhaps the most lamentable of all: The life expectancy rate for Blacks is six times shorter than that of Whites, meaning Black workers spend years paying into a retirement system only to have White retirees reap the benefits for a longer time; Black Americans do not even get to receive so much from what they have worked hard to pay into the system of welfare; even there they are stomped on and gutted by this society/country/government. Social Security’s Bad Deal for Blacks has definitely taken its toll.
In fact check out this website for more info:http://kathmanduk2.wordpr ess.com/2009/02/02/black-histo ry-month-welfare-in-black-and- white/
Some bigots feel if they say it long enough, then you will believe it. No other race in the US has the racism, inequalities,etc that blacks have had to deal with.

1. Social Secirity is NOT a retirement plan. It's a supplemental income to help the elderly, and those who worked and couldn't afford to put enough back to retire on.
BTW... Millions of white people also pay into this system.
(I'm sure that comes as a shock)
2. The difference in these numbers is simple.
IN ORDER TO RETIRE, YOU MUST HAVE A JOB!!!
(Bet that comes as a shock too)
3. Memphis helps keep these numbers accurate.
(You should have already known that)

Was just reading all the above comments. Just wanted to say this: people (black and white) getting Social Security are getting it because of what they have worked and paid in. If you want to bitch about Social Security- bitch about all the children getting it because they have a speech problem, behavior problem, etc. If these children are in need, then give them the services they need. Not money for the parents to spend. I fir a fact, know of people getting SSI for their children, Medicaid pays for speech, counseling and other services. So what is the check for? Most of the time- for the mothers to spend on themselves and their boyfriends. I want to curse Blanch Lincolns name every day for this.

I agree- with the work force Arkansas has- we couldn't support all the people who refuse to work.

That sounds good, but.... it'll never happen within the next 4 years.

Even though Arkansas is a State that could be 'self-supportive', it'll never happen.
As someone stated earlier, we don't have the workforce to do it.
Too many people have recieved "freebies" for too long.

They are useless.

Dead weight.

Bums.

Lazy a$$es.

Freeloaders... you get the point.
