So blacks receive welfare at 1% higher rate. And that's enough of a difference to even matter?

Whites are milking the system just as much.

To bad we don't have numbers on drug addicts on welfare. 80%?

You've missed the plot, squire.

Let's put it into a simple perspective.

1000 white people.
500 black people.

38.8 % of 1000
39.8 % of 500

See?

Or 38.8% = 388 per 1000 whites getting welfare.
And 39.8% = 398 per 1000 blacks getting welfare.

Or your way its 199 per 500 blacks which is the same thing.

It's the same math.

Only thing you've done is tried to confuse yourself.

I get ya. But its hard to tell based on the info provided.

It makes it look like 38.8% of whites and 39.8% of blacks.

But I get what you are saying now.

NO! THe percentaqe is the percentage of welfare recipients and not per anything. Raw number count of those on welfare rolls only, certainly not per capita which greatly increases the number of blacks by about a factor of 4.
