Quote from White Americans support welfare programs – but only for themselves, says new research | Salon.com

“There is a complication. New research by Robb Willer, professor of sociology at & Stanford University, and Rachel Wetts, a researcher at the University of California, demonstrates that “https://www.cbpp.org/research/poverty-and-inequality/poverty-reduction-programs-help-adults-lacking-college-degrees-the” despite all the ways that government provided welfare programs to help them, white Americans are willing to cut such programs if they believe that African-Americans and other non-whites may benefit.

This dynamic is made worse when white Americans are made to feel that their place at the top of America’s social hierarchy is challenged. Lyndon Johnson’s insight has been proven true over and over: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best coloured man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.””

  1. Yep. I’ve known this all along. Welfare is only bad when it’s those “other” people (non-whites) who get it. Fuck it! Sorry for all the “fuck its” today, but I’m fucking PISSED off!!!!

    • I agree, I see no reason for you to hold back. That only helps those assholes take over. We need to yell the truth of reality from every door, window, street, and media we can. Push it in their face as they push their crap in ours. Hugs

  3. Well of course. They are so special and this so called loving god’s favorite little pets. Can you imagine if some black people actually made it to this fictional heaven. Why the whites would be dusting off their KKK outfits ready for war! All this just disgusts me.
