Black Females Crushed by Unemployment
Townhall.com ^ | August 9, 2010 | Lurita Doan

Posted on 08/09/2010 6:18:15 AM PDT by Kaslin

July 2010 unemployment numbers show a distressing fact: unemployment among African American women increased to a staggering 12.9%, a statistic which bodes ill for the African American family since females are the primary  breadwinners in the African American community.  52% of primary wage earners in the African American community are women (compared with a national average of 39% ), so the effects of unemployment are crushing.

The July unemployment numbers for all categories of African Americans are dangerously high with  16% unemployment overall, and 41% among African American teens.  The unemployment rates, for African American women, which last month had seemed to be improving, increased in July.

The great strides made during the Clinton and Bush Administrations, both for reduced unemployment among African Americans and increased African American small business ownership are being eroded.   Various reports show African American families becoming increasingly dependent upon government assistance. 

Increased dependence upon government subsidies by African Americans has  dire, long-term, unintended consequences for all Americans.  Congress and Obama seem oblivious to the implications that as large numbers of African Americans remain unemployed in such large numbers, for so long, that they may be creating a new category and class of individuals who are permanently unemployed and permanently in need of government assistance.

Department of Labor Secretary, Hilda Solis, has been making the media rounds trying to put a positive spin on July's unemployment numbers, a clear indication that Obama Administration officials have yet to acknowledge that their various job creation policies have failed spectacularly in the African American community.  President Obama delivered a lackluster speech at a Washington, DC sign maker's facility, ignoring the dismal jobs report and, instead, painting a rosy picture of his Administration's job creation efforts.

Obama and the 111th congress promised change.  They promised that passing a $787 billion dollar economic stimulus bill would create jobs and  reduce unemployment.  They promised that voting in an extension of unemployment benefits was a one-time emergency measure that would not need to be repeated.  But, African Americans averaging 16% unemployment--is this the change that Obama promised?   

What is perhaps even more disturbing than Obama's attempts to put a positive spin on a disastrous unemployment report is that there does not seem to be any realization that Obama's policies are failing and that a new kind of thinking is required to solve these massive unemployment problems.

Obama continues to advance corrosive and confiscatory policies that crush small businesses.  These anti-small business policies also affect African American women since, over the past twenty years, African American Women start businesses at three to five times the rate of any other group.

Furthermore, the African American community is hurt by the silence their current African American leadership regarding these issues.  But, don't expect Democrat Black leaders to speak out against the harm caused by Obama Administration policies.  The euphoria from the election still lingers even though African Americans are the hardest hit by Obama's misguided policies.

Why don't we hear protests from Democrat Black leaders about Obama Administration policies that are pummeling the African American community?  One possibility is that many Black leaders, from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAAP to the National Urban League to the cult personalities that seem to serve as Democrat spokespeople on African American issues, benefit from Obama's policies.  These leaders grow more powerful as African Americans become increasingly dependent on government assistance.  Their role as intermediary and advocate to secure increased government entitlements becomes increasingly important as they increase their power base and fiscal authority.  Second, and sadly, perhaps blind adherence to Democrat dogma may be all they know.

Come 2012, it is likely that African American entrepreneurs and  women may abandon Obama and those members of congress who persist in implementing anti-business, anti-women policies.  Will the rest of the African American community follow suit?  Not necessarily.  But, if the Obama Administration and members of congress continue to implement policies that increase unemployment, increase taxes and fees, and force reliance on government services, it is possible that  many African Americans who have traditionally voted Democrat may throw in the towel and finally say: enough is enough.

I think he may lose the minorities simply because he doesn’t have a clue about the economy. He’s thinking of cultivating the crowd that wants government handouts, but there are many others who actually want to work and get ahead, and a functioning economy is necessary for that.

He’s down with Hispanics, too. An interesting fact is that 40% of the small businesses in this country are owned by Hispanics. If that figure sounds high, remember that these can be very, very tiny businesses, not only the corner bodega but a service provider such as two guys with a lawnmower and weed whacker. People don’t buy these services when the economy is down, and, in addition, these very tiny businesses are not up to all the reporting and regulatory requirements that are suddenly being imposed on them, not to mention the taxes. So he’s dropped a lot among Hispanics.

I think he’ll continue to go down among blacks, too, no matter how hard he tries to wave the race flag and keep them faithful to him.

Oh, the delicious irony! Under Clinton and Bush, blacks saw soaring employment opportunities. Under Obama, a black man, blacks are being subjugated (again) in lieu of unemployment assurances, educational scholarships for being black, and myriad federal assistance programs. This article tells me one thing about the black community: they want to work but cannot find any jobs! Congratulations Obama voters, you have succeeded in removing yourselves from the job market through indirect consequence of your voting actions in November 08.

BS any group in particular has been hit harder.

Actually, if you look at the demographic trend lines, your statement is incorrect, for example, minimum wage workers have seen the steepest and longest decline of all groups over the last two plus years.

Another thing, the reason why unemployment was also low under Clinton, was because the Republicans controlled the House, which they did until the Rats took over in January of 2007. Then things changed for the worse

I used to hyphenate myself as a way of explaining my heritage. However, one can maintain their lineage and heritage through pride in one’s cultural background and still remain an American the whole time. I may be Scots-ItaliaRussoGerman-American, but I’m American FIRST. I hold no fealty to the banners of any of my heritage countries.

Yeah, just like what happened in Detroit! Where after years of failed economic policies, African-Americans finally rose up and voted in all Republicans...

Oh wait

Sorry, but it's wishful thinking on your part, black unemployment could skyrocket to 75% and they would still vote for him (or any other Democrat) by 90%+ margins.

I think the problem is "some professional skills". I think too many of them bought into the black culture meme that says getting a good education and developing professional skills is a "white thang" to be disdained. That's left them equipped for little more than entry-level service work. Obama's policies have left them in the position of having to compete with illegal immigrants willing to work for less money, and employers looking to downsize and automate to reduce the size of their labor force because of the increased costs of hiring mandated by Obamacare.

NO ONE wants to hire an Affirmative Action aggressive black female.

I talk to more than a few HR people from many companies in my line of work (all private sector jobs). Just about all of them tell me that hiring is extremely risky right now and what few job openings they have are filled with white guys whenever possible for one simple reason: no repercussions if they don't work out and get fired. It is one of the few ways they have to lower risk.

Of course, they can't say that on the record, but look at the statistics. White guys are disproportionately involved in both jobs eliminated and jobs filled.

You know, my ancestors were Welsh and German, and I have never considered myself a Welsh-American or anything else. As nice as it must have been working yourself to death in a coalmine while singing really cool multi-part harmony, my life is in America. I don't seek to make myself separate from my culture and country. I (still) have more freedom here than I would have there, I (still) have more opportunity, I (for now) have much better medical care. I have no loyalty to my ancestors' homeland, because I was born here, as an American. I work to fit in, I speak clear English, I harbor no grudges against other classes or groups (well, other than confused Liberals, and most of them aren't bad, just foolish.) I show up on time to work, and most important, I am who I am all the time, and don't "put on" a new personality when I am around people I perceive as "like me." I can love the culture of where I came from without making it the thing that defines who I am today.

I am an American. I can't live somewhere else and here at the same time, I can't be a person who lived somewhere else a hundred years ago.

Show me a man who lives honestly, loves his family, keeps his yard clean, works hard, and isn't trying to overthrow the nation by using our freedoms against us, and that man is my brother, and I'd be thrilled to have him move in next door to me.

Martin Luther King, Jr. had MY dream, to live in a world where I can judge a man by the content of his character, and not by the color of his skin. The problem is that every time I judge some men by the content of their character, their "community leaders" make excuses for them and demand that I am judging them by other criteria. Single parents, drug use, bad work ethic, "blaming the Man", failure to finish school, "walk away dads"...these are the symptoms of a bankrupt culture, having nothing to do with skin color. You would think that "community leaders", if they were really leading the community would be preaching from the pulpit that Jesus loves us all equally, and we all need to strive for the high calling of being better people, not blaming someone else. But nope, somehow I as a pale Republican male am to blame for everyone ease's failures. My people say "You are in the greatest country in the world, and we believe you can make yourself rich through hard work. We believe in you!" The Democrats say "You can't possibly achieve anything. You are nothing without our help. We will pay you out of someone else's pocket because you are never going to stand on your own in a world where THOSE people keep you down. Now vote for us." Guess who get's branded as racists?

All kids, want to get ahead? Get a job, if you can find one now that the President's killed of all business. Be prompt, show up, work hard, speak clear English, and for God's sake, ditch the droopy drawers that make employers decide that you are such a immature moron that they'll never hire you. Your problems may not be that you have the wrong pigmentation...it may be you are acting like an idiot that no one wants to hire.

This land today is still better than any other land, at any other time. More prosperity, more hope, more chance for advancement. Hell, our POOR people have TV's, cars and are fat. If you are willing to be "an American" and work hard, you will go far. Insist on setting yourself apart, on celebrating under achievement, and looking like you hate everyone else, and you'll just be another Democrat.

The great strides made during the Clinton and Bush Administrations, both for reduced unemployment among African Americans and increased African American small business ownership are being eroded. Various reports show African American families becoming increasingly dependent upon government assistance.

The ugly truth is: there never were any great strides. A decade ago the economic tide was high. Credit was for the taking. Equity plentiful. Debt hides many societal flaws, for a while. Now that the tide has gone out and the equity stores are depleted, the skinny dippers are exposed.

I have a neighbor and until a few months ago he was employed by Sallie Mae. He's still out of work.

He is white, and his wife is black. The wife is a big-time Obama supporter.

Friend of mine (different guy) does legal work for lenders of student loans. He said that 0bama's regime had it in for the Sallie Mae administrators and in particular the guys in my neighbor's position.

My neighbor's wife elected her husband's job executioner.

Pretty close. If I had to lay off someone because of the anticipated increases in expenses, health care "tax", or other reason, and all else was equal, I'd see who had what bumper sticker on their vehicle...

Well...

She works for the county children's service agency, so I will go with not a chance.

That said, I just got word that the husband just got 2 job offers and he accepted one.

I connected the neighbor w/my lawyer friend. He moved his resume around and it looks like it yielded the desired result.

We had been praying for his job situation for a while. God is good.
