According to your numbers, African Americans are 13% of the overall population, but 25% of the food stamp population.

By your definition, this is "overrepresented" as 25% is more than 13%.

The opposite is true for whites, again, using your numbers.

There are more whites than African Americans on food stamps, but the percentage of whites on food stamps is much lower than their percentage of the population at large.


I'm still confused, but I was also confused with his question...

This was our exchange






I didn't hit the tweet button cause I wanted someone to confirm my point, but now that I think about it, I don't even get his point lol

If white people make up 73 percent of the u.s population and black people make up 13 percent while 39 percent of food stamp participants are white and 25 percent are black who is over represented on food stamp rolls, whites or blacks?



Josie. The numbers when divided come out to 1.21 per 100 whites use compared to 3.62 per 100 blacks. 47 million both using. More whites use than blacks, there are three times as many whites using food stamps.
I think I explained it.

That's the answer
1.21 per 100 whites use compared to 3.62 per 100 blacks.
  

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

Yes, more whites use food stamps than blacks. There are many more than black.

You have 300 whites using 30%=90 using.
You have 100 blacks using double, 60% and you have 60 using. Less because there are fewer even though more of their population use the system.

Sorry, ok. One more time. No numbers. There are a lot more white people in the country than black people. If all the blacks used the system, it would still be fewer than if half of the whites used the system.
