It was said in another thread that most welfare recipients are minorities. I disagreed with that and provided information to prove otherwise, but I was accused of not giving reliable sources for the information by three posters in particular: ΣNΣMY, Rockin' and Bobby Deez


Here is information directly from the Unites States Department of Agriculture regarding SNAP benefits. SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps. This program, and other welfare programs are provided by the USDA, so this is coming directly from the horse's mouth and proves that minorities are NOT the biggest recipients of welfare in the United States.

This information is for the year 2016. Information for the year 2017 won't be calculated until the end of this year. However, this information has been consistent with previous years, so don't consider this information to be an anomaly.

As you can see, the highest percentage and total number of food stamp recipients were Whites at 36.2%.

Hopefully this helps educate you guys and you will stop spreading false information.

Personally, I think it's great that these welfare programs exist. The government has a responsibility to it's citizens, and I've read over and over in my research that most welfare recipients are actually working and not the lazy lot that they are accused of being.

Discussion is welcome, but please try to keep it civil and within the code of conduct for our site.
Yeah wanna compare those percentages with percentage of that race in us population.

I'm a farmer, I have

10,000 Green apple trees, 2,000 fail to yield = 20% failure rate
3,000 Red apple trees, 1,500 fail to yield = 50% failure rate

I have more defective green apple trees than I do red apple trees, and I want to buy 5,000 more apple trees due to an increase in demand - I decide to buy 5,000 more red apple trees because there are 500 less defective red apple trees than there are green apple trees. I decide to buy 5,000 more red apple trees because I am stupid

Agree with you on welfare being good btw.
It's not most.

Only 36%

Especially considering they make up 3/4 of the population

Good point you have to look at percentage of blacks committing crime also if you want to make that argument..

Sure. But then you have to take into account the percentage that are living in poverty as well, right?

Most people who I've come across that use and abuse the government assistant programs are white people, have no problem with people using them as long as they don't take advantage of it. Don't understand why we have to make everything about race
