Entitlements and the destruction of the black family.
Again, keep in mind that blacks make up 12.6% of the US population and whites make up 72.4%. One of the first justifications and most widely used arguement used when the discussion of welfare comes up is that more white people are on welfare or assistance than black people. When 3 out of every 4 people in the US are white, you would expect more white people than black people to on welfare. As of October 2012 blacks make up 39.8% of all people on welfare while whites represent 38.9% of those on welfare. Source: Statistic Brain
When you look at the percentage of cases as opposed to the percentage of blacks in the US population, once again they are disproportionately represented.

To get a better understanding on how the societal failures of the black community are disproportionate to other races, lets first look at the US population as a whole. African Americans/Blacks make up less than 13% of the US population, 12.6% to be exact, while whites make up 72.4%.
Lets take a look at the statistical facts and data. (Keep in mind, blacks make up 12.6% of the population and whites make up 72.4%).
