In regards to respective populations blacks receive far more than white do.
For snap, roughly 26% of the black population receives the benefit, while only 7% of the white population does.
Those numbers show a disproportionality.
If things were equal and even, 72% of the population would be receiving 72% of the benefits and 12% of the population should be receiving 12% of the benefits.
But it isn't that way, the numbers are disproportionate.
The other poster showed that he understood this when he attempted to provided an argument that the amount of benefits received was in-line with said demographic. The problem with that was the stats that statement relied on included programs far removed from welfare and was thus a false claim.
The numbers are disproportionate with the demographics. Sorry you don't like that, but your argument fails.
You fail to even understand the numbers you are using.
Let me make it easier for you.
The percentages you listed, (39% and 38%) represent the percentages of recipients of the program(s).
Not of the population as a whole. Duh!
So if we choose to use those numbers from that site, it also tells us that the total number of welfare recipients equals 4.1% of the population, which would roughly be 12,869,900. So the 38.8% and 39.8% percent would be of that number, which you then have to breakdown to percentage of the respective population.
39.8% = 5122220.2
38.8% = 4993521.2
Now break that down by respective population to get an accurate representation.
