The difference is it's justified in the case of blacks, but not for whites because blacks in proportion to their total population are overwhelimingly on government assistance programs.

THAT'S the difference. No hypocrisy.
Gibbsnm post went right over your little head.

I see you lack some bit of reading comprehension, try again.

So, why do you think white folks are so lazy?

True. There's more whites who are poor but again, that's because there's significantly more whites. So it's not a fair comparison.

Lets look at this tid bit and dissect it down further:



So there are 20 million people who are living in extreme poverty. 42% of those are white people and 27% are black. That means almost 10 million of those are white and 5 million are black.

There are 200 million white people in the U.S. and 40 million black people in the U.S. this means that almost 1 in 4 black people are living in extreme poverty. But only 1 in 20 white people living in extreme poverty.

Total, raw population is key in debunking your sources analysis.
They don't get it, I have brought this up before and it makes too much sense for them to understand. When broken down into groups, the percentages are always higher for blacks. Sure there are more poor whites, whites on welfare etc., but it is because there are more whites period. There are also more whites who drive cars, work and vote than blacks. No Jives comparisons are useless. You have to use percentage's per group.

Poverty More than a Matter of Black and White | Inequality.org

Stupid thread.
from the article -
Quote:
Census Bureau researchers base their poverty figures on a market-basket approach, with a formula derived originally from the cost of an emergency food budget and then corrected for family size, age, and inflation. In 2011, under this formula, families of four rated as poor if their income fell below $23,000.
Many people including many college students who enroll in courses about poverty and social policy assume that black means poor. Why this assumption? Massive racial inequality certainly plays a major role.
There are places in the U.S. where an income of below 23000 is a satisfactory income. In Newton county Missouri, you can rent a 3 bedroom home for less than 800 a month. That would be the AVERAGE rent, not just a dump. A garden can help provide some of the food, and the rest of the cost of living there is similarly low.

Not every place in the U.S. requires an income of 60K to survive. Differing areas of the country have differing costs of living. That must be taken into account when making the general broad claims that the OP has made. Not everyone making less than 23K is on welfare, nor are they receiving federal benefits. They may not have a LOT of money, afford brand new clothes every month go out to dinner every week, and see a movie in the theater whenever they want. They are not all living in trailers either.. You catch thge part where a 3 bedroom HOUSE was under 800 a month as an AVERAGE rent in Newton? That means a lower cost home could be found for 5 or 6 hundred a month.

Get off your high horse, and actually learn about the topic you are whining about.

But we're not discussing the thread topic here are we?
The topic is, or was til people tried to derail it is:
Poor White Folks in America - Get A Job!

Which high horse are you speaking of?
You mean I shouldn't be trying to discuss what poor white folks do? And why some are lazy?
Isn't White America based upon white man's laziness, after all, they did import blacks slaves. And then imported Chinese labor to build the railroads for America.
Or, should we just shut up about that too and leave the dirt swept under the carpet where whites think it should stay?

We're not discussing blacks in this thread, we're discussing lazy white people.
