because the Amish are of a European sect that dates back to the 1600's. They are a subculture of the Menonites founded by Joseph Menon and his Anabaptist beliefs. Next question!
same reason there are no whites in the Ethiopian Orthodox church. They claim to have had the Ark of the Covenant.

Despite prevailing stereotype, Whites, not Blacks, collect greatest share of public aid dollars
SAY the word "welfare" and immediately the image of the lazy Black wellare queen who breeds for profit surfaces in the minds of those who have come to believe the hideous stereotype. It is a myth that persists despite government figures and authoritative studies showing that Whites overwhelmingly reap the lion's share of the dole.The image of the Black "welfare cheat," public aid advocates say, is based on misconceptions about poor minorities. The notion, they say, comes from society's resentment of seemingly ablebodied people getting paid for doing nothing.
"For some people, there is a need to believe that there are
professional welfare recipients who are deliberately trying to get not
only what they need to survive, but more," says Anne D. Hill, director

Dumb dreas, the liquors that come in 40 ounce bottle is referred to as "forties" not "fourties" as everyone with at least a third grade education can attest. Perhaps you should go to a library instead of watching tv and drawing your conclusions about the rest of the world from what you see on Jerry Springer.
