here, we see that in the year 2011:
-15% of Americans lived in poverty. Broken down by ethnicity, we have:
-12.2% of Asian Americans;
-25.3% of Hispanics;
-26.7% of African Americans;
live in poverty. So we clearly see that poverty disproportionately affects black and brown Americans.
Me: "So these right-wing extremists who want to deprive poor people the right to vote, particularly poor people of color, should be first in line to give it up themselves."
You: "No one on 8 pages of posts brought up race. No one. Until you."
Me: "So if we don't talk about hunger, everyone will be well-fed?"
You: "What are you talking about? You brought up race when in this conversation race is not an issue."
Me: "Race has nothing to do with poverty? Really? Man, I wish that were true."
You: "Yea, white people are poor too. Look into it. There are poor people of every race. Do you have anything at all to support this race baiting idea of yours that people want to stop voting for minorities on welfare?"
To which I broke down some verifiable statistics about different races and their respective poverty levels.
You: "Are you trolling me? Seriously the breakdown of percentage of poor by race has absolutely nothing to do with this thread."
I have built a case that if welfare recipients were to be denied their constitutionally-mandated right to vote, then it would disproportionately affect people of color. I have used facts and figures to help establish that claim; you have failed in your attempt to knock it down with emotional responses. If you could provide me some nonpartisan statistics that show that racial minorities do not receive significantly more welfare than whites do, I would be more than willing to take a look at them. Until such time, I will assume you are flailing.
