Blacks, Hispanics, Illegals Dominate Welfare Handouts

From American Renaissance article "Race, Welfare and Media Lies"


TANF

Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) is what most people think of when they say “welfare.” It pays cash directly to users. The amount varies by state. In 2018 (the most recent data available), there were over 2.27 million recipients, who got nearly $17 billion. Here’s the racial breakdown (Table 10):
Race % of Recipients% of Population
White27.2%60.4%
Black28.9%13.4%
Hispanic37.8%18.3%
Asian1.9%5.9%
American Indian1.5%1.3%
Multiracial2.1%2.7%
Whites are clearly an absolute minority of recipients: just 27.2 percent of the total. There are more blacks and Hispanics on welfare than whites. On a per capita basis, blacks are 4.8 times more likely than whites to get TANF, and Hispanics are 4.7 times more likely. Asians are only two-thirds as likely.
Interestingly, over 85 percent of TANF recipients are single or divorced, and only 13 percent are married. Conservatives have long argued that marriage reduces poverty.

Food Stamps

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is better known as food stamps. In 2017, a staggering 42.1 million people got free food at a cost of $68 billion dollars. The racial breakdown (page 22):
Race% of Recipients% of Population
White35.8%60.4%
Black25.4%13.4%
Hispanic16.5%18.3%
Asian3.2%5.9%
American Indian1.4%1.3%
Multiracial1.0%2.7%
Unknown/Didn’t Say16.8%NA
Again, whites are an absolute minority of food stamp users. The 16.8 percent of “race unknown or didn’t say” is high, but they are unlikely to be white. An even bigger story is that 8.2 percent of recipients are children of non-citizens. A further 8.6 percent are refugees or non-citizens. We import food-stamp users.

Medicaid

Medicaid is health insurance for poor people. An incredible 74 million people were on it in 2017 (up from 46 million in 2001). It is paid for by a combination of state and federal funds, and on average it accounts for a crushing 22 percent of state budgets. In 2018, Medicaid cost over $592 billion, and the racial breakdown for users in 2017 was as follows:
Race% of Recipients% of Population
White41%60.4%
Black30%13.4%
Hispanic20%18.3%
Asian5%5.4%
American Indian1%0.8%
Other9%NA
Again, whites are an absolute minority, though their percentage of recipients for this expensive program is relatively high.

Section 8 and other Public Housing

In 2017, there were nearly 5 million households in the US getting housing assistance through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Most of them got Section 8 vouchers or lived in public housing. Blacks are massively over-represented.
Over 1 million people live in public housing. The racial breakdown is as follows:
Race% of Recipients% of Population
White30%60.4%
Black42%13.4%
Hispanic23%18.3%
Asian2%5.4%
American Indian1%0.8%
The “stereotype” of blacks in public housing is not false. There are more blacks than people of any other race in the projects, and on a per capita basis, they are 6.7 times more likely to be in them than whites.
Most of the other housing programs involve Section 8 vouchers. A category marked “All Relevant Programs,” includes Section 8 and includes 2.8 million recipients. Here is the race breakdown:
Race% of Recipients% of Population
White29%60.4%
Black46%13.4%
Hispanic20%18.3%
Asian2%5.4%
American Indian1%0.8%
Blacks are 7.1 times more likely than whites to use this benefit and Hispanics are 2.3 times more likely. Asians are only 77 percent as likely.
There are other welfare programs, but these four are the most important and paint a good picture of who is on the dole. American Renaissance has run articles on this since 1993, all of which show the same racial pattern:
It is clear that blacks and Hispanics take a disproportionate amount of government handouts. Who pays? Nearly half of US households pay no income taxes, but it is hard to get racial breakdowns of who does pay. I have seen several estimates, but none appears to be definitive. Perhaps the most considered estimate is from the blog Alternative Hypothesis, which estimates whites paid more than 75 percent of taxes in 2014.
