And unlike the states they get 20% of their "food stamps" in cash. Trump granted them a waiver so they can buy hot food too but they also want 50% of their food stamps in cash. That ain't happening.

We need to cut ties with these leeches. We should have given Puerto Rico away and kept the Panama Canal.

That's less than the black population here in the states:

Quote:

The black population: At 41.6 percent, blacks were more likely to participate in government assistance programs in an average month.

But don't point it out, cause, racism or something.

I was merely pointing out that, yes, 40% of people in the PR on food stamps is shocking, but we have that here among the black population but it doesn't shock anyone.

Weird, isn't it?

yea it is weird...because you cant differentiate what is racism :no: you only smear the black people (monorities really) and it not being more "shocking" stateside, and fail to mention that the white race account for the most using gov't assistance

Quote:



Given the population of the U.S. in 2012 and the annual rate of participation by race reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2015, about 35 million white people participated in one of the six major government assistance programs that year. That's about 11 million more than the 24 million Hispanics and Latinos who participated and considerably more than the 20 million Black people who received government aid.

You could've done more research and pointed this out as well,


Quote:

Working-class whites are the biggest beneficiaries of federal poverty-reduction programs, even though blacks and Hispanics have substantially higher rates of poverty, according to a new study to be released Thursday by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Quote:

The result does not simply reflect the fact that there are more white people in the country. The percentage of otherwise poor whites lifted from poverty by government safety-net programs is higher, at 44 percent, compared to 35 percent of otherwise poor minorities, the study concluded.

But we KNOW why you didn't.

41% of blacks get government assistance
36% of Hispanics
17% of Asians
13% of whites

Yeah I know. Facts are racist. Everything you don't agree with is racist. Just looking at you the wrong way is racist. Etc etc
