@JFresh_136 No, that's a stupid thing to say. Think about it.

@JFresh_136 You put it very properly there, JStale. Do you realize that if less than 100% of black people listen to rap (which is what I assume to be true), then fewer white people are required to be 80% of the rap audience?

I think I could only argue that more white people were on welfare than blacks IF more white people were on welfare than blacks. (I couldn't care less whether or not that were actually true so don't get your knickers in a bunch over it). The point is, there is a difference between numbers and percentages. Don't take it so personally if a higher percentage of white people make up the rap audience. Or, if you must take it so personally, perhaps you could take comfort in the thought that the percentage of black people that listen to rap is higher than the percentage of white people that listen to rap. That's a completely different idea, and how I assume people have been interpreting this train of not-much-thought. Now stop being such a jerk-off.

@JFresh_136Did anybody ask anybody to get so stupid? Did I ask YOU if anybody asked me. I'm not defending the original statistic posited by whomever. But someone else implied that it is impossible for 80% of the rap audience to be white as if that doesn't leave any room for a black audience. THAT is preposterous. Oh, I like the way you quote the word math as if it's some imaginary thing. Stop being such a putz.

In 2010, the US population was nearly 309 million. Of these, nearly 224 million were white and about 39 million were black. If we assume that 100% of black people listen to rap (39 million audience members) and assume that they comprise of the remaining 20% of the rap audience, then it is entirely possible for 80% of the rap audience to be white because this only requires about 156 million white people. That's math.
