The Center for Law and Justice issues the results of "studies" that reflect data from unscientific, vacuous, amateurish research paradigms which feed a prejudice world view within the minority urban community. It is beyond me why the Times-Union gives the Director the coverage received. Come on Rex, stop your BS of supporting this fraud. Your behavior is really nothing more tham a plantation-style racism.

I'm a failure because I'm black, I'm in jail because I'm black, I'm uneducated because I'm black...bwaaaaaah!

Please develop an expensive, bloated, inefficient government program to fix me.

Black America has largely been written off by white America. We've pumped billions into minority programs for healthcare, education and welfare, to no avail. We've gotten nothing for our investment.

Time to tuck the welfare tiitty back into our shirt.

Here are the statistics on welfare recipients: Traits of families on AFDC (1) Race ----------White 38.8% Black 37.2 Hispanic 17.8 Asian 2.8 Other 3.4 Time on AFDC ----------Less than 7 months 19.0% 7 to 12 months 15.2 One to two years 19.3 Two to five years 26.9 Over five years 19.6 bear in mind that black are 12% of the population so that would mean more black familys are on welfare beings whites are like 55% of the american population at 37.2% with only 12% is a much higher percentage according to the population numbers white may have the highest percentage overall but this would also mean that they are great in number this shows that probably majority of blacks as a whole would be on welfare..do the math, ratio wise the blacks have the title Source(s):
Answer by unitedstatesofsocialistrepubli c - 5 years ago -Asker's Rating: Point taken, but remember this. 300,000,000 *.55 = 165,000,000 165,000,000 *.38 = 62,700,000 300,000,000 *.12 = 36,000,000 36,000,000 *.37 = 13,320,000 So there is twice as many whites on welfare than there are blacks living in the us?
