So what you are saying is that there is correlation between federal assistance and some other factor other than being republican that can explain why the Deep South and Miss. Delta get more handouts.

I can't imagine what that is.

It makes sense that the people that see the most abuse on a daily basis are the ones complaining the most about it.

Not sure what you are trying to say?

Federal spending is the highest where the minority population is the highest?

You say this, yet the key in the map says "Percent Black". What gives?

Welfare goes to where the poor are located.

Defense contracts, consulting contracts, and other federal dollars flow to states that don't have as many poor.

Id like to see what percentage of those federal handouts are welfare programs such as SS versus handouts for infrastructure and grants.

I did. You have your first picture labeled as 'areas that have the most Republicans' yet it's a map that shows the areas that have the highest percentage of black people whom usually aren't republican.

Unless you're just trying to be cute, makes no sense.
