    That stat debunks the GOP meme that black people are an unfair burden on soociety due to 'welfare hogging'.

    In fact the vast amount of money spent on programs for 'poor moochers' goes to white people. So since whites are making such a huge unfair burden on society... we should employ a conservative notion and ship them all back to Europe or put them in jail (or we could, you know, just start doing something about poverty). :P

    But then what the statistic also shows is that poverty is racist - its disproportionately hitting people of color. And if we then start to look at why; we uncover the entire engine of institutionalized racism that works to hold down people of color.

    OMG, like, gag them with a multi-colored spoon. Like, ya know.
