As a continuation of the look at the correlation between race and violent crime, I want to look at Welfare. In the United States, there are just over 110 million people on welfare out of a total population of 323 million, meaning that just about one third of the US population is on welfare.
Of those 110 million welfare recipients, 39.8% of them, or 43.8 million, are black. Blacks comprise 16 percent, or 51 million people, of the US population. Doing some simple arithmetic shows that 85% of the US black population is on welfare.
Aside from the connection between race, welfare, and violent crime, there is another fact from above that really shocked me.
One third of the US population is on welfare. Seventy percent of them have been on welfare for more than three years.
Another 20 percent - just over 65 million- are retired or disabled and on Social Security
Sixty percent of the country is either on welfare or Social Security. What is going to happen when the checks stop rolling in?
