Black Unemployment Rate 2008-present (Call Kanye, Obama May Hate Black People)

This table, compiled at bls.gov, shows the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for African Americans. Look how high it has gotten under Hussein.

(Excerpt) Read more at bls.gov ...


TOPICS: Business/Economy; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: black; jobless; jobs; obama; race; unemployed; unemployment
The month Hussein was elected, the black unemployment rate was 11.5%. A mere 16 months later, it reache 16.5%. And even in the past month, when the economy "created 216,000 jobs", and Hussein went out boasting about the statistic, black unemployment went UP to 15.5%.

I wonder if the media will run stories about how blacks are being hurt while the Obama Economy "recovers".

If my math is right (correct me if I'm wrong), then the increase from 11.5% to 15.5% marks a 35% increase in black unemployment from the month Hussein was elected.

Nice job there, Bambi. Maybe he can put up a "Mission Accomplished" banner.

The headline pre-supposes, without evidence, the DESIRE for jobs...

and yet they still give him 90% + support because he has a matching skin tone!

Black people shouldn't need to work. The white devil needs to pay reparations.

Where are the Reverend Jesse Jackson and the Reverend Al Sharpton - imagine those two and the State-run media if this were the statistic with G. W. in the Oval Office.
Curiously, both of these “race hustlers” are now where to be heard on this issue. Hmmmmm, interesting indeed.

That’s my take on it - it’s not that they’re unemployed, it’s that they don’t have to work anymore.

Obama promised to pay their mortgage and buy gas for their car, so they’re pretty much all set.

15%?? Wanna bet the real figure is closer to 30% or more? And surely no one believes this isn’t deliberate! Good government dependents make the most dependable Democrat voters, after all.
