The Truth about Welfare
Watch any talk show, conservative news show or read a liberal newspaper, and they all give the same message, “Black people are on welfare and have been for generations.” In fact one presidential campaign made it their double-talk slogan, “no more generations of welfare recipients”, “stop people living off the public dole.” Republicans and Democrats alike all jumped on the bandwagon. News casters picked up on the slogan and asked the question, “who are we talking about?” They received no direct answer but were given the old, nod and wink “you know who we’re talking about.”
This lie that Blacks live off of welfare has been spread so far and wide and repeated over and over and over so much that common ignorant people have come to accept it as fact. In fact, even Black people themselves have accepted as fact. You have Black comedians accepting it as fact and then assuming it to be fact, make up jokes with that as the basis of their punchline.
The fact is, white people are a majority of the welfare recipients. In fact, white people make up more than Blacks and Latinos put together on welfare. In fact, there are more white people on welfare than there exist Black people in America. Let me repeat, there are more white people on welfare than there are Black folks.
Of all the welfare recipients, only 22% of them are Black. Yes, that’s 1/5th of the welfare recipients are Black. That, my friend, is a small number. White people make up nearly 50% of all welfare recipients.
So how did this racist stereotype come about that Blacks are on welfare? Or, I should ask, how did people agree with it when there is such a huge white population on welfare?
One word: Ignorance.
If you are ignorant of the facts, people can tell you anything and get away with it. If you are ignorant of the facts, people can take your money and you not even know it is being taken. If you are ignorant of the rules, people can throw you in jail and you agree to it.
Oh those are some outrageous statements aren’t they? Guess what? People have been doing that in this country for over 2 centuries. It has gone full speed in the past 40 years. Now the media is in on the game, so all bets are off. If people have an agenda to push, it goes all out like gangbusters because the media can loop the message day and night, every hour, on the hour. You cannot compete with the truth, when the media tells you a lie. If the media wanted to reverse the color of grass and the sky, don’t you know people would go along with it? If the media looped, “new grass color discovered, blue not green; new sky color discovered, green not blue.” The media has done it in the past.
For instance, marijuana is a plant. It has thousands of uses, such as: making paper; making clothes; making rope; making polymers. In fact, the plant is so great that every material it makes is better than any other material on the planet currently. Hemp is the name of the plant. Hemp ropes are far stronger than silk ropes. Hemp paper is 3 times better than wood paper; lasts longer without fading; and doesn’t take toxic chemicals to make it into paper. Hemp clothing doesn’t destroy the earth to create; they are far easier to wash; don’t get dirty as easily; they repel stains. In fact hemp makes hundreds of medical remedies that pharmaceutical companies cannot duplicate. A man wanted to push forward his investment in wood paper. He made the hemp plant seem diabolical, so he enlisted the media. Within a year, hemp was made illegal and people were afraid to go near it and thought it was satanic.
Do you see the power of the media? If they can change people’s opinion about a plant, of course they can change and manipulate social perceptions about facts that aren’t real. Who cares if someone is racist? The problem is the media going along with the agenda and pushing it forward. And, it’s not just one source of media. They all do the same thing.
Think back for one second. The latest news story was plastered on every channel, local and national centers. And, they always have the same facts. No matter how independent your local station claims to be, they jump on the same bandwagon everyone else does.
Let’s look for a second at a huge national story: the Laci Peterson case. Here’s a case where a Latina went missing, was 7 months pregnant and who’s body was found decapitated and various parts of her arms and legs were missing;and her body washed ashore nearly a year later. In the media, they pointed to Scott Peterson. They found out he had extramarital affairs. Surely if he was cheating on his wife he must have murdered her. But wait! I turn your attention to another national story: the Evelyn Hernandez case. Here’s a case where a Latina went missing, was 7 months pregnant and who’s body was found decapitated and various parts of her arms and legs were missing;and her body washed ashore 3 months later. Woah!
Did you just have deja vu? Everyone knows Scott Peterson murdered his wife right? Uh, did he also murder Evelyn Hernandez? What’s strange is, we actually know where Scott Peterson was the whole time. And yet, they still convicted him. In fact, they just assumed he did it.
The reality of the two cases were so out of this world, that no one wanted to actually speak it allowed. So, the media just convicted poor “horny devil” Scott Peterson, and we all just nodded and looked the other way. What’s the reality you ask? Well since you asked. In the south west there are known and documented cases of witchcraft and occult secret societies. These cults perform heinous sacrifices. The police have documented cases of it. But, you don’t hear it in the news for some reason. The media keeps it hush hush. So the cults are the truth, but a regular man is on death row. While he did cheat on his wife, it doesn’t mean he killed her, nor does it justify him being put to death. Regardless of the feminist organizations that wish it so, it is not right.
This is a case of the media gone wild. And, we sit back and take it. I could pin point case after case, news story after news story that are false, bigoted, and passing on misinformation. Misinformation is the biggest and largest crime that is going on.
If you’ve been reading my blog, I’ve already pointed out that:
- Black unwed fathers spend more time and money with their children than any other unwed fathers.
- Blacks pay their debts on time and more often than other races.
- Blacks have a much lower divorce rate than other races.
- Blacks have less out of wedlock children than other races.
- And now, Blacks are the least people to be on welfare than other races.
All of these stereotypes the news and shows put forth, media. But, we all accept it as fact. We think because we saw it on T.V. it must be true. When in fact, the opposite is true. Could it be that people are basing life decisions off of lies? Could it be politicians are making laws based on lies? Could it be the Federal Government is making policies based on lies?
You’re damn skippy they are.
