Safe Mode: On
Welfare & financial aid by the numbers (white, black, etc.)

Here are the official statistics on welfare and other financial aid in America.







To sum it up:

  • Blacks receive welfare extreme disproportionately to whites.
  • This disproportion is so great that more blacks are on welfare than whites, despite being only 13% of the population.
  • White families living in poverty are dramatically less likely to be receiving benefits than blacks.
  • A black family living in poverty is nearly 3 times more likely to live in subsidized housing than a white family living in poverty.
  • Blacks are also nearly twice as likely to be receiving food stamps.

  • Workfare is the answer.

    Don't have a job? Now you do. You're a sidewalk cleaner. Problem solved.

    If you remove the incentive to surf welfare (money for no effort), you push people to do better for themselves. You aren't leaving them to starve, but you're also getting something for the public funds you're giving the person.

    Win win, if you ask me.

    Hell, you could even do an incentive program, where the hardest workers get the better jobs.

    Rewarding effort and industriousness is scary t More..

  • 02' 03' 92' ? Seriously lol ? Please delete this and come back with some current and updated facts. (I could care less who's getting all the welfare) I'd just rather see the more current poverty population/welfare rates rather than where it was at 10 YEARS ago.

    • @gorgonzatropolis "10 years...and things haven't changed"....do me a favor go back the last 5 years and tell me things haven't changed....your the simpleton.

      the burden isn't on me to prove anything, your the one who posted this outdated shit on here. I could care less if Blacks were the top welfare recipients or if Asians were. Bring back more accurate and current stats.

      and yes we get it, blacks are the largest portion of welfare recipients, congratulations captain obvious

    • @gorgonzatropolis LOL i'm a liberal ? funny, last i checked im far from one.

      Don't get all mad because your getting called out on your shit.

      My argument isn't about blacks being on welfare, its about your outdated statistical information you dumbass, bring some current statistics and come back and see me.

      Love how you avoided the fact things HAVE changed in the last 5 years. Conservatives are so "cute" when they avoid the truth.

  • let just adopt the ryan budget so we can have a nondiscriminatory suffering. schadenfreude anyone!? its a 'colorblind' proposal so we wont need to keep demographic stats on vagabonds or the destitute. id much rather have a tax bill a point or two lower than to be troubled by the meaningless implications of these outdated statistics.

    however you do receive a point for using actual data; yet its been revoked for the poor application, especially for not having post-recession data.

      yes this is me, please call me rick. i am a social conservative man who tells rape victims to 'accept the horribly created gift of human life god has given to you.' I also want to ban all forms of porn and require women to eat a banana with a fork and knife yet i dont see anything wrong with posing for a photo where my had is gripped around a chocolate cylindrical treat that will melt in my mouth.

  • The US census is conducted once every ten years as mandated by the constitution. The first thing they compile is the population make up state by state for apportionment of house seats. All the other studies are conducted at the request of government agencies, and they have to stand in line for the most part. Where do you suppose the study of blacks on welfare falls on their priority list. These days you won't find too many agencies interested in these numbers.

  • fuck it...make it 1 to 1. For every white, black, Asian, or Native American that gets Welfare, only 1 of the other groups can have it. Since only about 5 Native Americans get it...20-30 people will be on Welfare. That's all...and that's fair and easy.

  • Your data is old and your conclusions wrong and your bias pathetically obvious.

    Here you go: http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=3677

    Almost all entitlements go to elderly, disabled, or working households

    Please be less stupid.
