Now with calculating the population (races)

There are 46 million Blacks in the United States which means 27% of the Black population are on SNAP.
There are 55 million Hispanics in the United States which means 8% of the Hispanic population are on SNAP.
198 million Whites in the United States which means 10% of the White population are on SNAP.

So from that - people get their "Blacks are Welfare Kings and Queens" being that the Black population is the lowest but compared to their SNAP recipients - receive more. Though, there are lots of factors that can provide either explanations or excuses depending on each recipients situation.
Many hispanics are in fact black as well. Racial statistic I put little stock on because at the end of the day its what people view themselves and you can check any box you want to.

And besides that, whats worse a large demographic of people abusing the system who are in fact wealthy, with assets in real esate and businesses using our tax paying dollars when they don't need it? Or people who are generationally poor and have nothing to their name? Hasidic jews been scamming the system for decades and they are continually allowed to get away with it also without the negative connotations that comes with being on welfare

Yes! Hispanic is not a race. A Hispanic/Latino can be White or Black. I am Hispanic/Latina but I am a Black woman. The Hispanic/Latino division defines Blacks/Whites/Mixed. Also, there's Blacks that list themselves as "Other" - etc. the statics are just for general counts though not 100% accurate.

Believe me, I find it to be disappointing that a lot of Jews are fraudulently receiving benefits but I'm not surprised this has been going on for decades and I don't see much changing soon.

They get married religiously not legally and have their wife claim single to collect benefits, taxes and pay little to NO rent. My question is why is this being allowed to happen, its like they are being protected. All the incest and fraud they do yet no one does anything about it. NYC is not even the only area they are reaping benefits they don't deserve or scamming the system, check into Baltimore, upstate New York and the various other hasidic communities in this country.

All the unsafe buildings they own and illegally build. They even build schools in poor minority areas, take all the government funding from it and barely put anything back into the school which leads it to failure. How can they be so detached from society and government but still reap the benefits from the system they choose to ignore and not follow rules.

Google Kiryas Joel and be ready to puke.

I wish that if you need to receive free housing, food, medical, ect and already have a family that to get those things, all adults in the family must agree to have their tubes tied.
It's not even people getting off on the system or abusing it that bothers me. What bothers me is creating lives that you can't afford. From one on those children are held at a disadvantage. They didn't ask to be born and struggle through life. Its very selfish. I just don't understand why it isn't common sense, you can't afford your family now so don't increase it.

Nothing will come from it, never does. This isn't the first FBI raid on hasidic jew communities.

Loud published something similar a few years ago. Unfortunately, the link seems to have been removed. This is all I could find : Rockland County, NY - Orthodox Enclaves Top Section 8 Voucher List

My cousins, aunt and uncle live in one of the towns close by and said it's been a constant struggle between the towns and them trying to take over.

According to an associate of mines in real estate who is a Jew. Property and Real estate laws in NYS are designed for Jews only. Rest of America real estate laws are very Protestant. .
