In regards to your last point there is no need for fancy data. Its very simple. There are more whites therefore more whites will pay taxes. The other groups are minorities for a reason. Just like in Sweden more whites are taxed than Arabs.
Essentially your logic is the minorities/have nots are in support of having the producing sectors of the country subsidize their lives. This sounds somewhat racist but its just demographics. Its acknowledged by liberals and socialist that the minorities are the poorest segments of the country and that the top % of income are white. So does that clear things up? This isn't to say all minorities are in favor of socialism obviously as in the Scandinavian countries. Nor does it mean that working class and poor whites are not in favor of socialism. This is more or less just showing where the funding will have to come from and why you noticed a somewhat homogeneous contingent of resistance although that too is a false assertion as many minorities oppose socialism.
The U.S. tax code is very complicated, but it follows one general rule (Buffett, notwithstanding): Richer people pay more. In fact, the top 1% pays more federal taxes than the bottom 60% combined. Is that outrageous? You might think so. But consider also that the top 1% also makes more than the bottom 40% combined. That's the thing about being rich in America: You make lots and lots of money and you get taxed at a progressive rate on it.
