As far as blacks making strides in America? 50 years after Jim Crow we have a black president.

I know, I know.... what took them so long?

Instead of worrying about blacks maybe some of you should worry about whites... poverty is up, welfare and food stamp use is up, meth use is up, violent crimes and school attacks are up... worry about YOUR people.

The truth of the matter is blacks are "gainin on ya" and while you guys are focusing on the negative.... all those blacks with jobs and education are passing you by. Blacks are starting businesses, closing deals, getting advanced education...

and all you guys are doing is posting gibberish on CD.
Uh huh!

try again. and this time you might actually READ the article;

Quote:
Total number of Americans on welfare 4,300,000
of THAT number;

Quote:
Percent of recipients who are white 38.8 %
Quote:
Percent of recipients who are black 39.8 %
now if you do the math;

number of whites on welfare= 4,300,000*.388=1,668,400
number of blacks on welfare= 4,300,333*.398=1,711,400
the difference is 43,000 MORE blacks on welfare than whites.

isnt math fun and informative?

My post said OTHER GROUPS, not just blacks. Additionally, next time post the relevant info instead of percentages because those alone would make whites greater recipients than other groups.

so in other words you FAILED simple math right? there are 4.3 million people on welfare, of that 38.8% are white and 39.8% are black. that means MORE black on welfare than ANY other group. we are not talking about the population as a whole just those on welfare.

So what? Most recipients are white. Get over it.

Wing nuts never fail to amaze me.

Another finding of the study is that the distribution of benefits no longer aligns with the demography of poverty. African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.
White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

Blame socialism. Blacks stopped taking care of each other when the government decided to take of them. Socialism breeds unproductive and lazy people. Many black leaders are socialist and Marxist.

Blacks got ahead in the 1920s and 1930s because capitalism drive the community. Socialism is that 800 pound gorilla in the room.

My statement was OTHER GROUPS, not just blacks. You FAILED at simple READING COMPREHENSION. Your post simply included the percentages, not actual number for those on welfare. Based on that, my post was correct,

I'm a black guy from the ghetto. A very very poor ghetto. I came up in the projects. I never received government handouts, and neither did my mother. I can tell you this right now, a lot of black people are lazy. Do you know what the average jobless black man is going to do tomorrow?

He's going to get up at 3 PM
Call his homeboy 'Black black'
He's going to roll a joint
Argue with his baby mama
And call some hood rat up and give him some sex

He may roll down the block for some brew, and hand out on the corner some more. May sell a few bags of weed, or hit the weed man up if he's out of supply.

That's what young black men are doing around the country everyday. This is why black people aren't going anywhere. Oh and last thing, he's probably going to berate a smart kid from the block actually trying to do something with his life

So what? The EXACT SAME THING will happen tomorrow in the trailer park...in the barrio...on the reservation....in a wood shack in Appalachia...in an apartment in the Hollywood Hills...in a shanty town along the border...in a hi-rise condo in Miami....AND at any given frat house all around this nation.
