I couldn't wait to read the comments section to see all the brilliant comments from the racisct section. It's the same thing I always say; yes their are black folks who are abusing the system. Yes, the inner city where poor blacks live, their are more drugs and illegal activities going on. My biggest problem with all of you who are so quick to pick on black folks is that you only know them from the negative stereo types you read or see on TV. I know people of color who work, are single(with kids), and are living life right. I also know white folks who are aren't living and doing what they are supposed too. If we continue to live in glass houses thinking white people are perfect and black folks are all hood rats you are only breeding hate and stupidity. I know I'm wasting my time on most of you, because you will always be closed minded and never even be brave enough to talk to someone outside your own race to realize how insenstive your comments are when your comments start refering to people you consider to be freinds and in my case family. There are more white people on welfare in my white family then their are black people on welfare in my wifes' family and the unwed mothers with kids is just about even. Go ahead and continue with your stupid comments and be even more upset that I screwed up by marrying a black. OMG!!
Sorry to disagree but I work in the inner city. I work for the State of MD and the District of Columbia. I see it every day. I go into low income homes and talk to people. The problem isn't the skin color, it's the culture. The African/American culture has evolved into one of crime, welfare, and lack of responsibility. It's not a black issue though. I work with many black immigrants from all over Africa and they have a different attitude. In fact they look down on most African/Americans. Most of them work hard, educate themselves, and are trying to better themselves.

Sure there are more whites on welfare than blacks, but blacks make up less than 13% of the population. Of the single mothers on welfare 39.7% are black and 38.1% are white. Food stamp recipiants, 37.2% are black while 46.2% are white. Your statement that more whites get welfare is technically correct, but whites make up 79.9% while blacks are 12.9%. Let's not get into the racial crime statistics. The sad thing is that the black leadership is to blame. Instead of inspiring people to better themselves and work harder, they have created an attitude that the government should provide "programs" for them. The percent of blacks that vote Democrat is proof of that!
