    You do realize the majority of the people on welfare are white and live in the south?

    The GOP has spent many years appealing to evangelicals and religious conservatives. The one-issue voter--abortion, gay marriage. They like their handouts plenty around the bible belt. Don't kid yourself and stop drinkin' the red kool-aide.

    What Did Obama Do As A Community Organizer? - Article - National Review Online

    Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising. At first, the organizer tackled small stuff, like demanding the repair of streetlights in a city park; later, when the group gained confidence, the organizer could take on bigger targets. But at all times, the organizer’s goal was not to lead his people anywhere, but to encourage them to take action on their own behalf.
    Barack had been very inspired by the civil-rights movement,” Jerry Kellman, the organizer who hired Obama, told me recently. “I felt that he wanted to work in the civil-rights movement, but he was ten years too late, and this was the closest he could find to it at the time.” Obama, in his memoir, put it more simply when he said he went to Chicago to “organize black folks.”

    It's a bit insulting that you picture minorities that way.

    Do you really believe that most minorities are living on handouts? Seriously?
    so why do they vote dem?

    any proof of that-for years the people with the highest percentages on welfare were black but through sheer numbers there were more whites on welfare. I thought that finally changed a few years ago.

    Seriously? Don't go there. Your getting petty.

    Where is the right to be hired based on race and not merit?

    Where is the right to a home you cant afford, free money to pay for that home, free money to pay for food?

    Show me where these rights are written down!

    Can you give us an example where the Civil Rights industry is making money? You're always asking for examples so it's only fair, but I won't be holding my breath.

    General Characteristics

    Whites are a slim plurality (not a majority).

    The biggest factors are education, though. And note that 70% had recently worked, which disproves the theory of a massive dependent class. If anything, it proves that without education, it's hard to keep a consistant job.

    That's only when you use the very limited definition of Welfare as food stamps and other urban programs. When you include all entitlement programs paid for with tax dollars... Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, Veterans' Administration programs, federal employee and military retirement plans, unemployment compensation, food stamps, and agricultural price support programs....

    Whites outnumber blacks. I don't have current stats, but I'm looking.

    The urban welfare mom was mostly a myth, a visual talking point. A small handful of women got caught taking advantage of the system. All safety net programs have the vulnerability points.

    Bible thumpers, especially those in agricultural states, cost you a ton of money.

    Please note -- I'm not trying to overgeneralize -- not all subsidized farmers are evangelicals, and not all Christian evangelicals take some form of welfare.
