face value, yea numbers add up - easy to say the end all is there, however when you decipher what's being accounted for is where the actual detail is determined over what race is accounting for more of gov't assistance programs/dollars vs another race

You went from:

and fail to mention that the white race account for the most using gov't assistance

Which, if what you're saying is true:

That means the VAST majority of blacks are on welfare while many whites (at least 11% according to you) are simply using Medicaid and are lumped into that 'welfare' group.

So if blacks aren't using Medicaid (per your own numbers), then by default...

See where I'm going with this?

So, I'll give you a moment to figure out how you are going state your argument (or rather, which argument you are trying to make) and/or refute the facts and then check back in later.
