Whites aren’t as prosperous as Trumpers seem to think
Rick NewmanSenior Columnist,Yahoo Finance•August 15, 2019

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 14: An America flag flies near the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island on August 14, 2019 in New York City. On Tuesday, acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli reworked the words of the Emma Lazarus poem The New Colossus as he defended the Trump administrations immigration policies. The poem appears on a plaque inside The Statue of Liberty. The 1883 poem by Lazarus is often cited as an inspiration statement about Americas attitude toward immigrants.

The Trump administration’s top immigration official, Ken Cuccinelli, has suggested that white immigrants from Europe are more economically responsible than nonwhite immigrants from elsewhere. Yet whites are the largest group of welfare recipients in the United States, while immigrants are far more entrepreneurial than native-born Americans.

Cuccinelli ignited a cable-news firestorm when he proposed modifying the famous poem on the Statue of Liberty so it reads: "Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge." (Here’s the original verse, for anybody seeking an assist: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore….)

Cuccinelli went further by arguing that the Liberty poem, written in 1883, referred to immigrants from Europe, as if those huddled masses were more industrious and deserving than other huddled masses. His comments are racially charged because the Trump administration is trying to scale back access to safety-net benefits by migrants hoping to become legal U.S. residents. Most migrants to the United States today aren’t white Europeans, but non-whites coming from Latin America and Asia.

Cuccinelli is suggesting white immigrants, or maybe whites in general, are more economically self-sufficient than other groups. Yet whites represent the largest racial group living in poverty, and the largest group of food-aid recipients under the federal SNAP program. Here are the numbers:

Blacks and Hispanics receive food aid and struggle with poverty in higher proportions than their representation in the overall population, for well understood reasons, including the long legacy of slavery and the underdeveloped nations many Hispanic immigrants come from. In terms of overall numbers, however, whites are the biggest group in both categories. At an average cost of $254 per household per month, Uncle Sam spends about $2 billion per month for food aid to white households, compared with $1.3 billion for blacks and $610 million for Hispanics.

The Trump administration’s campaign against legal immigration is also economically self-defeating. In a well-functioning economy such as we have, growth in population and the labor force boost economic growth and improve living standards. A boost in legal immigration is the most obvious way to offset slowing population growth in the United States. Yet Trump is pushing in the opposite direction, which many economists say will lower growth.

Immigrants are also more entrepreneurial than native-born Americans. Immigrants start businesses at nearly twice the rate of natives, according to the Kauffman Foundation. Some of those businesses are high-fliers like Tesla (TSLA), Google (GOOG, GOOGL) and Intel (INTC), but most are traditional small businesses that politicians love to praise as the backbone of the U.S. economy. With American headed for minority-majority status in a couple of decades, it would be prudent to harness the power of immigration instead of denying it.

How does this data jibe with the pampered, privileged narrative the Demos are leveling against Whites?

Great question. But, would you ask a question to a spoon? Or a rock?
Of course not. So why ask him?

You know what is truly scary, is you needed Yahoo to let you know a fact that most normal folks knew for decades. It's not a big secret, and never was. We make up the largest percentage of the population. But, thanks to Yahoo for breaking this wide fuggin open... well, for any meatheads that didn't know yet.

You actually are starting to believe the narrative that only white folks are GOP. Holy bat shit dude.

So, the point is what exactly now? Yes, still cut welfare. Black, white or green. We don't care. It's time for able working folks to work. And folks living in depressed areas need to move where the jobs are and get off welfare.

If nothing else......these brain dead, copy and paste articles have some entertainment value....like the quote above. I had a good chuckle over that one...."I need food stamps because my great-great-great grandfather was a slave" LOL....anyone actually believe this BS?

I guess the person that plays the trump card is a trumper.

You do realize that Whites are proportionately less likely to use govt assistance......right? The article even admits that fact.

And even though it's not mentioned in the article..... A proportionately higher percentage of govt handout $ are funded by Whites.

So can you reiterate the point you were trying to make by posting the article?

It's true, these basic facts are fairly well known.

However, what the current statistics are for them now are not known to anyone unless reported.

(I wonder just how current these are, since I didn't notice any dates. It could be from just a few months back, or perhaps for 2018.)

Given how much d'rats hate white folks (except for themselves, of course), you'd think they'd be celebrating this "news"- if were'n't actually mindless bullshit that is.

This could be one the dumbest articles I've read in a long time. I'm definitely a few IQ points dumber for having read it. There are 8 year olds who could point out the logical flaws in it.

Perhaps, the only thing dumber than this article and its author might be the person who decides to post it on a public forum.

I knew the article made me dumber ...

Can someone please explain to me why the percentages of people on food-aid only add up to 80% ?? What/who is the group receiving the other 20% of food-aid? (rounding cannot be responsible for such a large gap)

Or, is this just innumeracy in action.
