Skip to comments.Dem Congresswoman Blames Black Unemployment On "Racism"
Posted on 08/23/2011 12:09:00 PM PDT by VU4G10
"When you look at African American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. I understand exactly the entire nation must be involved in this recovery but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That's what we're experiencing," Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told MSNBC.
"And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class; it's slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with many issues. Racism, shipping jobs overseas, access -- no access to technology. You know, the digital divide is there and many of the new jobs that's what it requires. So, we have a problem."

i take this as further proof obama and his entire administration are in fact racist...
How many of those people she mentions have never worked a day in their life?
no access to technology. You know, the digital divide is there and many of the new jobs that’s what it requires. So, we have a problem.”
Oh good grief.
THe ones who DO have access to digital technology are using it to flash mob rob.
Let me guess, more “pie” would be the solution?
God forbid we consider personal responsibility...........
no mention of illegal aliens getting work permits?
For a clown...........
The boy keeps crying wolf...the cries go more and more unheeded.
Racism ay? Blame it on the black president and congressional black caucus slaves on the plantation. The race card is getting worn mighty thin these days.
The odd thing is that I never had to really think about it or that it mattered? They know there jobs and know how to run things. That's all that matters to me.
Giving the democrat party the ability to play the race card on every issue seems to be one of the underlying reasons they worked so hard for Obama.
No way in hell this stupid bitch could even define the term “racism” to have any correlation to what she is jabbering about.
Call me crazy, but I’m just not in the mood to hire gangsta thugs who can’t speak worth a damn and are illiterate and who’s pants are falling to the ground, only to be held up by them grabbing their crotches. If if I DID hire them, I could never have the option of getting rid of them for poor performance, without being dragged through the court system. Maybe it’s just my racist whitey ways.
As long as black kids visualize education as being “white”, they will not get those jobs requiring skills and knowledge.
As long as black communities experience looting and riots which destroy businesses, there will not be employers willing to establish businesses and provide jobs in those communities.
She forgot to mention illegal immigrants. But hey, Obama just granted amnesty to God knows how many. How is amnesty going to help blacks in the job market?
That would be the liberal racism that works to ensure the Democrat base is hard to employ - government educated by union run non-schools, and handicapped by excessive government protections (e.g. minimum wages, setasides, HR policies, etc.)
When are people going to associate the black unemployment rate with their horrendous H.S. graudation rates. It goes hand in hand. Don’t cry me a river over this!
I believe it is racism that is to blame. It’s those black racists who think that by pulling up their pants, getting an education and then working hard to earn a living they are acting white. So the opposite of acting white is being ignorant, lazy, slovenly and trash is being black?
Man, talk about racism.
Umm...YOU have a problem Frederica.
That organ you call a brain has rotted away and has left a useless pile of goo.
Odd that every illegal that comes across the border can find a job in no time at all.
Odd that there are many Americans, born and raised by Uncle Sam welfare that can’t find any...........
You have a cultural problem, lady. So — fix your culture.
Snort. Yeah, black people don't have cell phones and computers.
I am getting quite tired of racist pigs like this clown blaming all the problems they helped create on racism.
Yeah right....thats a distinguished congresswoman. She looks like someone I would see at a casino boat. Welcome to Obamanation.
Quit thinking that staying out of prison is a big deal.... you're NOT supposed to go to prison.
Don't get women/girls pregnant without marrying them and supporting your kids....
Speak English- ya know, fo' shizzle...
Finish school and stop thinking that if you make A's you're "acting white"... it means you actually learned something.
Stop getting on disability for fake seizures, fake mental retardation, back pain, heroin addiction, migraines,...etc.
Don't think of living in government housing, collecting government checks, eating what government food stamp provides is a family legacy to be proud of.
when 3 or more of you congregate in a store, don't think the merchandise is yours...it's not and you are just a common, lying thief with no redeeming value to society.
....and finally... look in the mirror, Maybe, just maybe that's the problem and not racism.
Those graduation rates are deceptive. Even if the black graduation rate is 55%, many of those kids get to college and are seriously deficient in math and English language skills. I’d estimate that only about 60% of those on that 55% are functionally literate, so that means that less than one third of black students who were supposed to graduate this past spring are actually equipped to be productive members of society. Many of these people are not looking for jobs, so while the official black unemployment rate may be at 16%, their unemployable rate is probably near 35%, and going up every year.
Get OFF the government plantation!! Set my people FREE!!
At least she admits she’s a racist. Recognizing she has a problems is the first step towards curing herself.
The shunning of Bill Cosby for his "controversial" comments by the black community is simply a disgrace and just shows how virtually impossible this problem will be to solve.
There, am I racist now?
Would you hire this guy.....?
I actually just googles the black high school graduation rate and it is 47%, not 55%.So the stats I mentioned in my previous post are even worse.
I layed off 1 worker..... An Obama voter. I won’t hire libs, so it’s not racism, it’s just a by product of 95% obama support in the black community.
Most Blacks, like Obamah and Michelle can't ever find blame in themselves but sure can blame a host of others that happen to be White.
Making America-Loving patriots out to be Klu Klux Klan members.
I agree. Black entitlment is bankrupting society and the public treasury.

With that hat she looks like she’s ready to serve in the administration of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
This is the racist dingbat who wanted congress to change the rules so she could wear her asinine hats while the House is in session.
Frederica, then only way home ownership slips away is if one fails to pay for it!
What % of African American males under 30 are employable and seeking work?
It seems to me that among the 40% that are unemployed, a great number of them may well be unemployable.
Another imbecile heard from..
She wants to be a Mack Momma..
