      yes there are more whites on welfare, there are more whites then blacks in the USA.

      HOWEVER, as you see below, this is from

      as follows:
      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. Why am I writing this? Because I am tired of the misrepresentations on this issue. I read so many on here claiming that more Whites are on welfare than Blacks (true, in terms of raw numbers), yet not accounting for the fact that there are over 4X as many Whites in this country than Blacks! In statistics, you cannot go by mere numbers. Only if the playing field is exactly equal, which is rarely is! This thread was started, not to be racist, but to keep it real. After all, there are some legitimate reasons for Blacks to be on welfare more than Whites. But the worst thing anyone can do is be in denial.

      like she wrote, you all think you are right because theres more whites on welfare. there are 4x less blacks in the usa, but you account for just as many welfare cases. dont worry though, soon you will eclipse whites anyways, so i wont lose any sleep over it
