the percentage of blacks on government assistance is far higher than the number of whites
I think right before the GOP congress forced clinton into welfare reform, the actual number of blacks had caught up to the number of whites in terms of those on assistance but I have no idea what the actual numbers are but the percentages still remain much higher for blacks
I cannot remember the last time an Asian was indicted for murder in the four counties I follow closely--now I understand in some areas-like LA there are Asian gangs that cause lots of problems but there are plenty of Asians in Cincinnati, and I cannot recall an Asian murder convict (I am sure there are some, I just cannot recall a single one)
but being rather up on federal prison statistics as well as state prison trends Asians are underrepresented in the serious crime conviction categories and blacks are WAY overrepresented (54% of murder convicts in the USA are black-for a group that is about 12% of the population)
blacks make up 13% of the population but 37% of the people on welfare.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
