Black: 17,100,000

Medicaid:
White: 25,400,000

by default, huh

Based on your numbers, yes. So now you're telling me nearly as many blacks are on medicaid as food stamps?

Quote:
the black race enrollment accounted for only 5.6% to the total population of 2012, whereas the white race accounted for 10.5%

Also, again...

Quote:
42 million. The number of people who identified as black, either alone or in combination with one or more other races, in the 2010 Census.

So 30 million out of ~50 million blacks use some sort of welfare, which is way higher than 40%. Wasn't that my original point?
