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?


Why does it matter to you?

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

If there is a higher proportion of black people living in poverty, then it stands to reason that they'd have a higher proportion using food stamps.

Is this shocking or something?

After eight years of a black president, and over half a century of government programs to alleviate poverty, why does it exist?

I guess you are simply saying that a larger percentage of black people use the system than the percentage of white people. That would make sense.

I'm not mad at ya. I'm just horrible in math. I got all D's in my math classes in high school.


Don’t feel bad. In high school I used to wonder what was going on with all the math I never heard of. I was happy I could buy something and get the right change.
When I got out of high school and got a job where I could learn a trade, a machinist, and build machines, I learned what all the other math was about. We had a private teacher once a week for the time it took us to serve our 8000 hours to get our machinist papers. I was one of the youngest, 21 years old and a machinist.

As I showed on the other page, this guy on twitter was arguing that Obama was so good for African Americans... he put up some unemployment numbers and I asked him if black unemployment was going down why was black food stamp participation going up simultaneously... he answered with some claim that more whites were getting gov assistance... so I looked up the stats and it seemed to show that even though more whites are on food stamps blacks were over-represented ... I came here for confirmation as to not make an inaccurate tweet... It wasn't meant to be that deep Roll Eyes

1: Are you male or female?

2: Are you white or black?

3: What state do you live in?



Which of the answers to those questions are based on your opinion? 


None of them, of course.  However, The answers to each of them or to all of them can and probably do influence my opinion.  I would say that the state in which I now live is not the area that influenced me the most.  The state in which I was born and raised and the area of the nation in which I spent the majority of my life have been very influential.  I haven't lived in a vacuum.
