It might have to do with blacks and Hispanics being more conservative and religious than whites

The questions I asked a long time ago while quick to throw stones....mass killings and illegal drugs...answer those questions since you need to feel like you are more educated.
And I think you took that 40% to be 40% of all Whites in America.

No, that's 40% of EBT users are White. That leaves 60% that are not white that are EBT users.

So your statement about Whites being the biggest EBT users is not true.

And that is without even mentioning total population race percentages.

Yes.

Again... In which discipline did you earn your degree? And in what capacity did you receive military training?

I laid out very basic computations for directly proportionate comparison purposes, which you seemed to have been completely unable to make yourself, thereby causing you to draw incorrect conclusions.

Though rates of participation are higher among people of color, it is white people who are the greatest number of recipients when measured by race. Given the population of the U.S. in 2012 and the annual rate of participation by race reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2015, about 35 million white people participated in one of the six major government assistance programs that year. That's about 11 million more than the 24 million Hispanics and Latinos who participated and considerably more than the 20 million Black people who received government aid.

In fact, most ​white people receiving benefits are enrolled in Medicaid. According to analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 42 percent of non-elderly Medicaid enrollees in 2015 were white. However, U.S. Department of Agriculture data for 2013 show that the largest racial group participating in SNAP are also white, at more than 40 percent.

Look at the chart. There is a factor in total population amongst all racial groups. In almost every state whites receive a higher number of welfare benefits. I'm not misunderstanding.

Mass killings? Baltimore, Chicago, etc... Need I go on? Compare their dead to the extremely rare mass killings. Which has a higher death tally?

Illegal drugs? Just look at the prison population.

See my post above where I laid out basic verified facts.

Not to that low of a level. And she claims she has military training in addition to that.

Anyone feel safer now?

But isn't that to be expected when comparing absolute numbers? After all, whites are still the largest ethnic group in the US, about 73%.
I think relative and per-capita numbers are much more meaningful when analyzing such developments.

No, White non-Hispanic are down to 61% now.
