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?

They are free to go back anytime they wish. They all want to curse the white man for bringing them here but I don't see boats loaded going back. I bet you could not put chains on them and make them go back.

No, you just repeated your false hopes that you didn't have to. Your wishful thinking is not really the same thing.

Simply a fact. What's wrong, you don't like facts? Perhaps you need to be given credit on the bases of race instead of ability? Sorry but no affirmative action here. If you don't like racism then stop causing it by expecting to be treated different on the bases of being black. You can't ask for special treatment for jobs, school, ect. ect for being black then scream you are treated different for being black.

Kinda like many gays eh.
They demand their "equality" and then insist on their being "different" at the same time. No wonder so many of both groups are so pissed all the time - their philosophy of life premises are incongruous.
They demand to be two things at once, when the truth, the real truth, is that both groups are just people, like everyone else. They think themselves "different" and put upon by those who are not "different", but they whine in vain, as we are ALL "different".

MURRAY, UtahA 46-year-old soccer referee who was punched by a teenage player during a game and later slipped into a coma has died, police said. Ricardo Portillo of Salt Lake City passed away at the hospital, where he was being treated following the assault last weekend, Unified police spokesman Justin Hoyal said Saturday night.

Police have accused a 17-year-old player in a recreational soccer league of punching Portillo after the man called a foul on him and issued him a yellow card. Hmmm and someone claims just a few punches to the head by a 17 year old is not life threatening. I guess the 17 year old was just defending himself from a stranger following him because we all know children don't attack without a cause.(sarcasm)

The bullying/cowardly behavior syndrome is not color specific. Hell, it ain't even species specific.
