|Category||Equal Military||Static Military|
|Whites||$553.52 billion||$249.52 billion|
|White Per Capita||$2,795||$1,260|
|Blacks||-$389.71 billion||-$306.53 billion|
|Black Per Capita||-$10,016||-$7,700|
|Hispanics||-$411.95 billion||-$291.3 billion|
|Hispanic Per Capita||-$7,298||-$5,160|
This takes into account taxes paid and government services consumed at both the State and Federal level. The “Equal Military” column treats military spending as a service consumed equally on a per-capita basis between blacks, whites and hispanics. The “Static military” assigns all military spending to whites.
Race and Tax Revenue
|Bracket||% of taxes bracket pays||% of bracket is white||% of bracket is hispanic||% of bracket is black||% of taxes paid by whites-in-bracket||% of taxes paid by blacks-in-bracket||% of taxes paid by hispanics-in-bracket|
This comes out to $4529.52 billion paid by whites, $528.30 billion paid by hispanics, and $485.67 billion paid by blacks.
Race and Government Use

|Service||Budget||White Use %||White Use $||Black Use %||Black Use $||Hisp. Use %||Hisp. Use $|
So as it happened, and this is something I thought going in, the race differences in government consumption are not a very big deal, and the real cause of the budgetary impacts of races is the difference in tax payment. I also found some data showing that whites made up 75% of millionaires, and I thought “ya know, based on this, whites overall probably pay around 75% of the taxes” – and I was correct.
|Region||% White||Median Income of White Males||Median Income of White Females|
So a big impact doesn’t just pop out at you. And if there is a correlation between median white income in a state, or county, and the proportion of blacks and/or hispanics in that state or county, well then the next step would be to show causality.
