The Source of Black Poverty Isn't Black Culture, It's American Culture???

'Here is what is beyond dispute: In 2012, 35 percent of blacks lived in poverty, compared to 13 percent of whites. In 1970, those rates were 33.6 percent and 10 percent, respectively. Poverty in the black community is higher, and has been consistently.'
'Black poverty' went up 1.4% and 'white poverty' went up 3%.
'There is something about black culture that prevents black Americans from escaping poverty. We'll call this the black culture option.
There is something about the culture of being poor that prevents the poor, regardless of race, from escaping poverty. We'll call this the culture-of-poverty option.
There are no internal cultural forces at play. We'll call this, partly for the sake of stirring the pot, the racism exists option.'
If it was option three(racism exist) why did white poverty increase twice as much???(1.4 vs 3)
Or looking at it another way 'black poverty' increased +4% and 'white poverty increased 30%!?(1.4/33.6 vs 3/10)
Plus if we look at the fact that the 'white' population is 3 times larger than the 'black' population are there really more poor 'blacks' vs poor 'whites'???

Who wants to escape when the Sugar Daddy in Washington is supporting you?
There was a requirement to work in order to receive welfare, but King Barak cancelled it.
EBT cards, Section 8 housing, discounted utilities, and Obamaphones. that makes a LOT of people happy.
That's not to say a lot of blacks are trying to escape poverty with education, but many people of all colors are satisfied, and will vote as often as necessary to retain that hammock we used to call a safety net.

But the thing is it is not a 'black problem'. More white people are in poverty and the white poverty rate is increasing faster than the rate for blacks.

I agree, the poverty rate has risen a lot since 1/20/09. It's no longer along any racial lines.
