All Those White People on Food Stamps

The majority of people using the food stamp system are indeed White, because there are far more White people in the total US population. However, if we compare the percentage of White people to the percentage of Black people using food stamps, we find that there is a noticeably higher ratio of Blacks on food stamps than Whites when compared to their own race. This is something that most people miss because statistical analysis is not something that most of us are taught growing up.

The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program provides food stamps for almost 47 million Americans. Of those 47 million people, 43% are White and 33% are Black. Approximately 19% are Hispanic, 2% are Asian, and the remainder are Amerindian.

So let’s see how many Whites there are in total: when we include Hispanics who identified as White on the census, we get a total of about 245,532,000, or 77.7% of the population as of 2013. Non-Hispanic Whites totaled about 197,816,000, or 62.6% of the U.S. population.

  • 43% (Whites) of the 47 million total on food stamps is 20,210,000.
  • 33% (Blacks) of 47 million total is 15,510,000.
  • 19% (Hispanics) of 47 million is 8,930,000.
  • 2% (Asians) is 940,000.

Now let’s find the total population of Blacks in the country:

“In 2013. the US Census Bureau estimated 45,003,665 were African Americans but we’ll round down to 45 million Americans in the United States, meaning that 14.1% of the total American population of 316.1 million is Black.”

OK, so out of 45 million Blacks, 15,510,000 are on food stamps. So for every 9 Black people, 3 are on food stamps, a ratio of 3 to 1. Basically, 33.333% of Blacks are on food stamps. But wait, there’s a little detail here that we can’t forget: “In 2010, adult Black non-Hispanic males were incarcerated at the rate of 4,347 inmates per 100,000 blacks. Taking their 45 million total, that means 1,956,150 are also, technically, on food assistance—just in jail. Then throw in all the costs that come from that. So for every 45 Blacks in the country around 2 are in jail, or (rounding down a bit) 1 out of every 23. That skews the ratio even higher, but I don’t know by how much and don’t feel like figuring it out because even when you round down Blacks are far and away the worst. So yeah, around 40% of Blacks are technically getting the government to pay for all or some of their food costs.

I’m just going to use Whites here and pretend White Hispanics are genetically the same as mestizo Hispanics. So out of 197,816,000 Whites, there are 20,210,000 on food stamps. So out of every 197.82 White people in the country, 20.2 are on food stamps. Reducing that further, for every 39.56 Whites (let’s round up to 40) 4.04 (4) are on food stamps. 40 to 4—that’s 10 to 1. For every 10 Whites 1 is on food stamps. As for the prison population?

On December 31, 2013, the United States held an estimated 1,574,700 persons in state and federal prisons. Whites are 32% of the total locked up, so a total of 503,904 Whites are incarcerated. Out of 197,816,000, that’s 50 out of every 1978, which is about 1 in 40. Conclusion: A total of 12.5% of Whites rely on the government for some or all of their food costs.

I won’t even bother with Hispanics because there are so many fucking illegals, and yes, they manage to finagle their way into getting all kinds of food stamps, and we literally have no idea how many Hispanics are in the country, so let’s forget about them.

With Asians, we find a similar problem. There are a significant number of Asian illegal immigrants so we don’t know the true number. The census lumps all Asians together; similar to the problem with counting Hispanics, different sub-ethnicities within the group have markedly different genetics and vary by IQ. The Filipino average IQ is 86, but the Japanese average IQ is 105; the Korean 106; the Singaporean 108; the Chinese 100. And there are plenty of studies correlating higher IQ scores with lower poverty rates. (You get better jobs usually, and many psychologists argue that higher IQ correlates with lower aggression and less impulsive decision-making.)

So yeah, more White people are on food stamps than Blacks by total numbers, but Blacks as a race are disproportionately more likely to receive gibsmedats compared to other races. 1 out of every 3 Blacks plus the incarcerated, versus 1 out of every 8 Whites with a statistically insignificant number of incarcerated.


Black Twitter may be funny, but it’s woefully misinformed. And it’s the same thing when we get into the “Police be racist! Black lives matter!” people. But that’s something for another day.
