black isn't crime
But blacks (minority of the population) commit the majority of crimes. Care to explain that?

The percentages those on welfare by race as of 2011 are listed below in descending order by percentage.
Black-39.8%
White-38.8%
Hispanic-15.7%
Other-3.3%
Asian-2.4%
Blacks shouldnÂ’t collect 39 percent of welfare benefits when they only make up 12 percent of the general population. FACTS.

Hey they come from the government. If you have a problem then call "your boy" and complain.

No, no they don't. They just come from you. Which doesn't mean much at all.

Look them up yourself. Yelling no they don't is a second grade tactic. I'll be waiting.

That's it? Are you really so stupid you think the entire world does not know this? WOW what an idiot. You insult me by even thinking you could ever deny the truth. Get real idiot. These are facts known by everyone and to deny them just makes you like stupid. You want a link? How about you find one government source that says otherwise.

Still the failure. Seems your counter claim can't be defended. The old say something irrelevant and insulting to bypass the subject matter. When will the control freaks learn ploys like that only work on the lower IQ portion of second graders.

As no counter-claim has been made, only a request for evidence of your claim, it's becoming quite evident that you have no actual ability to support your initial statement.

It's so sad as you are trying to be so assured and it's failing so startlingly.

My numbers came from a government report. If you can counter that with any other government resource then do so or shut up. LOSER.

Families receiving TANF (TANF replaced AFDC) in 2008 were 31.5 % White, 34.2 % African-American, and 28 % Hispanic.

Blacks make up less than 12.6% of the population and are 34% of all recipients. Whites are over 72.4% of the total US population and are 31% of recipients. Hispanics are 16.3% of the general population and in the last decade have gone from 15% to 28% of recipients. Asians are equivalent to Whites. Asians and Whites fare better in ever worsening percentages for all races when looked at in proportion to their representation in the population.....http://www.inde pendentsentinel.com/2012/01/th e-u-s-welfare-state-with-minor ities-the-biggest-victims/

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

Some people are more comfortable being enslaved by their government. Blacks have been in the slavery business from the beginning of their existence. When white societies civilized, they developed a class system instead. Europeans discovered the big business in slavery when they visited Africa. Blacks sold their own people into slavery and yet the white man is blamed. Some blacks sold their children into slavery hoping they will have a better life in the New World. Was it better to risk getting put into a diamond mine, sacrificed, eaten by a lion or get three meals a day picking cotton?
