I'm fairly certain that we had our turn of that way back before the turn of the 20th century, especially during the Middle and Dark Ages. Minus the school thing, of course... Because, you know, of the notable lack of education back then. Unless you count the mafia during the Prohibition, too. And, naturally, if you overlook the crime rates outside of the USA, as well.

Perhaps I imbibed in too much liquor-soaked spiced peaches tonight, so don't mind me.

Considering I deal with statistics all day (if I told you my job you will be left scratching your head wondering why I deal with statistics) I have seen many of times numbers twisted completely out of context and sometimes made up. So many assumptions, like this thread.

In reading this thread I knew someone would eventually stumble on FBI stats, Labor Department numbers, census data, information from the Department of Education, the Bureau of Prisons. You know what? At the end the day it kinda doesn't matter.

What ultimately matters is agenda, what angle are they playing?

Is not a question of which racial group makes the largest percentage of poor people in the United States, or in breaking down a racial group(or age, gender, geographical location is a good one too) how many sit below the poverty line?

For that matter what is the poverty line? For example being single I am above the poverty line. If I was married and/or have a child I might dip below the poverty line, depending. The question posed about whites in poverty has its own built-in assumptions. To answer is to supply an entire set of assumptions that may or may not get us closer to the truth.

"Please restate the question to allow for a meaningful answer."

Yeah, and sometimes one would just scrach the head about how they even got those numbers from, even though many can be done different to get different results but would they just not make few tests and make a % to get around whats the closest?

It also demonstrates why I decided not to even attempt teaching at all.
