I consider welfare politics so I'm putting this is the politics section. Kaendar informed me that more white people are on welfare than black. He is correct. But I'd like to ask a question. What percentage of all white/black in america are on welfare? This is what i found out: According to http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_percentage_of_people_in_US_are_on_welfare http://www.chacha.com/question/what-percentage-of-people-on-welfare-are-white,-black,-or-hispanic - 29 million people are on welfare - 39% white: 11,661,000 - 38% black: 11,362,000 According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_United_States: - US population: 313,544,041 - White: 72.4%: 227,005,885 - Black: 12.6%: 39,506,549 Math time!: Whites: 11.661,000 / 227,005,885 * 100 = 5.13% Blacks: 11,362,000 / 39,506,549 * 100 = 28.75% That means the total percentage of all white people in america on welfare is: 5.13% While the total percentage of all black people in america on welfare is: 28.75% Sorry but these numbers disturb me (please tell me what I did wrong, because I hope I am wrong somewhere). Discuss! I'm going to bed. I'll check up on this thread in the morning.
