Of course the majority of entitlement users are WHITE….why – because there are 8 TIMES as many whites as Blacks, thats why. You dont analyze the TOTAL number of users to discern any policy…you look at the RATE of use. How many per unit. Or how many Whites per 1000, or how may Blacks per 1000 use the service. You will find the RATE is much higher in minority communities. Very simple math…not racist or anything else. Simple math. Add and divide. Math does not care what or who you are. To be able to compare things to things you always need a RATE per Unit. Such as car accidents are given in so many wrecks per 100,000 miles. You need a standard of measure. Such as Cocaine use is given as 30 per 1000 in population X and 50 per 1000 in population Y. Its the RATE in the population….not the TOTAL number you are concerned with when comparing. Yes, far more TOTAL Whites use cocaine simply due to their being 8 times as many….BUT the RATE in Minority communites is MUCH higher per unit.
Again, nothing racist about stating that fact. Numbers dont lie and that is why many dont like them. Neither Santorum or Al Sharpton can change that as much as they might like to.
