I just pasted these from a government site:

With regard to AFDC the figures are:

White 38.8%
Black 39.8
Hispanic 15.7
Asian 2.4
other 3.3

To break down these numbers, we look at how many Whites are in the population as a WHOLE. If Blacks make up less 14% of the population and are almost 40% of all receipients, then they represent about 2.5 times their actual population. Since Whites are over 50% of the total US pop., they represent less than their overall piece of the pie, population-wise. Hispanics are at least 15% of the general population, so they take only about as much as what their population represents. Why am I writing this? Because I am tired of the misrepresentations on this issue. I read so many on here claiming that more Whites are on welfare than Blacks (true, in terms of raw numbers), yet not accounting for the fact that there are over 4X as many Whites in this country than Blacks! In statistics, you cannot go by mere numbers. Only if the playing field is exactly equal, which is rarely is! This thread was started, not to be racist, but to keep it real. After all, there are some legitimate reasons for Blacks to be on welfare more than Whites. But the worst thing anyone can do is be in denial.

The countless whites who whimper about blacks on welfare as if it's a black-only program when 1.) there are plenty of whites on welfare and whites have always been welfare recipients in the U.S.; 2.) for the majority of its existence, welfare has been a white-only program. Hate to burst bubbles but welfare was created for solely whites. News flash: blacks were denied all their rights 35 years ago and prior. One of those rights was access to welfare. It was only by the end of a grisly African American Civil Rights Movement did poverty-stricken African Americans finally become eligible for welfare along with whites. Thanks to African Americans fighting for the equal rights of all minorities, all poverty-stricken racial groups became eligible for welfare.[source: http://academic.udayton.edu/race/04needs …]; 3.) even if welfare were a black-only program, whites would STILL be unjustified to whimper about it. If that were the case, it ought to be regarded as a small reparation for the 5 century long era of anti-black atrocities that ended 35 years ago. It's as a result of that era that so many African Americans are impoverished. The entire African American community had to start out at the bare bottom and work their way up from scratch. In addition, it ought to be regarded as a small measure taken in respect to white privilege.(What are whites even doing on welfare considering white privilege and the fact that they weren't enslaved from the 1500s to 1865, legally discriminated against from 1865 through the 1970s, then separated from society's wealth in white flight)? News flash: today's elderly blacks were treated like garbage and denied all their rights 35 years ago (that includes most jobs; all decent jobs; all decent salaries); consequently leaving today's middle-aged blacks to start out impoverished, much like most of today's younger black generation. Besides that, blacks have been doing the dirty work of whites for the vast majority of their time spent in the U.S., while receiving nothing but racial abuse from whites in return. 3.) middle-class African Americans like myself pay taxes and aren't entitled to welfare even after wrestling our way out of poverty-stricken lifestyles whites have placed us in and we're not whimpering about paying taxes everywhere you turn around like the white community is 4.) despite the fact that middle-class African Americans pay taxes, they receive no credit for paying taxes as the majority of whites whimper about it as if they're the only people who pay taxes and aiding all blacks and only blacks -- Much like affirmative action, welfare is in no way reparation for the black race like whites treat it as. Hell, it's not even treated as reparation by whites, but worse: preferential treatment that solely blacks get over all races. The white race hasn't done squat to make up for the era of anti-black atrocities. The only thing they've done is whimper AS IF they've done far more than enough. In addition to working for the white race with repayment of mistreatment, impoverishment, and zero reparations, blacks additionally have to deal with baseless welfare whimpering from whites.

People get offended when topics hit close to home. I'm guessing that someone is pissed and has anger issues because their mom didn't take care of him, and the only reason he didn't starve was because if their foodstamps. Now he's pissy when someone talks on the subject.

I see you doing this all the time. You always have some personal attacks to launch and never actually make intelligible points. He made several good points, and you didn't respond to any of them. They are solid points worthy of considering, and you didn't even read them. You just make ad hominem attacks (which are logically invalid btw). Every now and then you may throw in a quip that you think is clever but really is just idiotic rhetoric that you saw on Red-Eye.

I just have this quesiton for you:

Why don't you address people's points before, or at least WHILE insulting them?

Every wealthy suburb in the USA is mostly white, you got to any low income housing project in the USA and it consists of 99% African American residents. There is no statistic that says whites are the majority on welfare. Just go to your local HUD complex and you will see nothing but black people. Its a shame that people want to live off the government, act ghetto, commit crimes, and the scream about being a victim once arrested. I do believe in Karma, and we see it happening every day. Be patient, decent Americans, those days are almost over.

this is utterly ridiculous because all races are on welfare and always will be. all of you who are bashing the ones on welfare better hope nothing happens that you may lose your job or something because there are more and more people on welfare who never thouhght that they would be there unless you are filthy rich or come from money or maybe a good education but that doesn't always work. How many times do student graduate and get out of college and have to work at Walmart. Most of Americans are only living from paycheck to paycheck and if something happens most of us only have enough money in savings to make no more than 2 weeks if we do lose our jobs. something to think about!!

Have you been to Walmart lately? And see how many folks use EBT cards? At ours, I've seen; in equel share, all black, white and hispanic. Perhaps we need to see what happens when welfare is abolished. It's true more whites are on welfare then blacks per capita. Whites are now the minority by the lasted cenus reports.

Gosh, do you think the welfare statistics might have SOMETHING to do with the fact that most black "immigrants" were brought over on slave ships, that black people were denied their basic rights for centuries, that this led to a massively lower amount of wealth and land and capital investment for black people, not to mention the fact that black people are still massively discriminated against in hiring, in wages, in promotions, in business and personal loan availability, in the housing market...
Not to mention our helpful media continually portraying black people as gangsters, drug users, and criminals every time you turn around. Not to mention the ridiculously higher incarceration rates of black men and women and children for the same or similar crimes that white people get away with all the time. Not to mention the almost complete lack of representation of black people in congress. The list could go on.
Yeah, maybe there are some cultural factors that contribute to this statistical disparity. Ya think?
Y'all need to learn a little history!

I graduated with a girl who was raise by her grand parents. She had a baby at 17. After graduation she got herself on Hud and food stamps and bragged about her new independence. She is white and her grand parents are upper middle class. Therefore Hud office is not nothing but blacks and not all whites are trash. Some people are just damn good at scamming the system.

Welfare has nothing to do with race. It is a condition where people would rather take from the government than support themselves.

Now as far as all the BS about slavery and reparations and such Crap:

NO one alive today was a slave and therefore not entitled to reparation. NO one alive to day was a slave owner and therefore does not OWE reparation. This talk of reparation is just another way to get something without working for it. No one in my family owned slaves. Many of the slaves sold to white were sold by black Africans. Black folks don't owe me anything and I don't owe them anything. Having lived in California for years I got a taste of reverse discrimination. No, being white doesn't always get the prize. you know what? instead of crying about it I just moved on. Don't tell me how you have to work harder than whitey to get ahead. That is BS. Affirmative action has long given you the edge on that. Just live your life and let others live theirs.

you already have plenty of liberal whites like steve from portland to twist things to give you and edge.

When I worked for a surgeon, we had a patient that was here illegally. She has no insurance and was given emergency medicaid and and ebt card. My elderly parents, who worked very hard all their lives and paid taxes, are.on a fixed income. They make about.ten dollars too much to garner any kind of assistance. I ask you who is really getting screwed in this situation?
