A little different with the Mexicans. When you have 12 people and 3 families under one roof pooling their 6 poverty level incomes, as a whole, they are not really in poverty.
With the blacks, you have 12 people under one roof and 1 poverty level income (the mom).
The Mexicans are family oriented people for the most part and manage to get by without the government teet (I am talking about the legal ones here).
And that income, more than likely, is coming from the government.
