So, since you haven't shown you really aren't better, let me break it down even further than I already did.

Apparently it was a rounded number of the 2012 estimate of 313,873,685.
But lets stick with the more accurate number and limit any rounding until the end.
Using the information from the site you chose we find that 4.1% of the population is on welfare.
38.8% of that 4,1% is white.
39.8% of that 4.1% is black.
4.1% of the total population of 313,873,685 = 12868821.085.
39.8% of 12868821.085 = 5,121,790.79183 of black folks receiving welfare which is 1.6318% of the whole population.
38.8% of 12868821.085 = 4,993,102.58098 of white folks receiving welfare which is 1.5908% of the whole population.
So those numbers already show that blacks receive welfare more than whites.
(again, and I can not stress this enough, this is based on that sites numbers, as I have no idea what they are using in total to come up with their welfare numbers.)
And the percentages as a whole is not what matters to this argument as it was being said that more whites receive welfare then blacks.
Which they should, being the largest segment of the population, but do not. Which is made obviously by this sites info. And by respective population breakdown, the numbers show they are disproportionately higher for blacks.
As you provided from the Census Bureau. (overlooking the lower 63% number)
White alone, percent, 2012 77.9%
Black or African American alone, 2012 13.1%
Whites at 77.9% of the whole population of 313,873,685 = 244,507,600.615
Blacks at 13.1% of the whole population of 313,873,685 = 41,117,452.735
4,993,102.58098 of 244,507,600.615 = what %?
41,117,452.735 of 41,117,452.735 = what %?
So by individual demographic based information at the site you chose and rounded:
Roughly 2% of the white population is on welfare, while roughly 12.1% of the black population is on welfare.
Anybody can see those numbers are disproportionate.
This ends your math lesson.
