Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson said Tuesday that the nation would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 or 15 percent and yet unemployment for the black community has been double that of white Americans for over 50 years.
This country would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent. No one would ever stay in office at 14 or 15 percent unemployment in this nation, but weve had that double unemployment for over 50 years, Johnson said while speaking at the National Press Club about the gap between whites and blacks in America.

Actually its probably close to that now.
Right you are. However, I think if Americans knew this, white, black, yellow, orange. it don’t matter. they would be pissed off.
I know I am.
That's not an exact quote, but it's darn close. Wish I could remember who said it....
Race issues? Spare me. They need to fix their culture.
Disregard all the phoney “out of the workforce”, “disabled”, and “extended” unemployed—and it is well above that figure AND GETTING WORSE.
Maybe if Mr BET and his fellow Black Racists would stop blaming Whites, and took responsibility for the way American Bkacks are conducting themselves....things just may improve.
So many rules and laws benefit Blacks over Whites today....and still the problems.
First, average unemployment is above 15% and they reelected Obama, so yes they would tolerate it.
Second, real black unemployment is around 30% and they voted for Obama by greater than 100% in the hardest hit areas.
So Mr. BET, don’t tell us that black unemployment is a problem that won’t be tolerated.
We wouldn’t vote over and over again for the politicians that got us there.
Well, they certainly seem to be their own worst enemy...their plight has gotten worse not better, the more power they wield. Too bad the idiot at BET refuses to look in the mirror.
“Actually its probably close to that now.”
This country forces affirmative action policies (under threat of lawsuits and government requirements for contracts and agencies) that practically guarantee a white unemployment rate much higher than that; the white middle class is in the crosshairs of government policy, and is disappearing as a result. The demographic nightmare unfolding (not down the road, but NOW) is a result of those policies; barriers to higher education and access to jobs has ensured that whites would stop marrying/breeding, and any stroll past a schoolyard will show the impact.
This country is determined to push white unemployment above 15%.
So, deal with the impediment to first-time workers entering the workforce, lower or eliminate the “minimum wage”.
Given that the white population in this country is much larger than the black population, I’d say he’s right. 15 percent white unemployment would spell employment disaster for those in smaller ethnic groups.
Of course, he’s right for the wrong reason, but that’s another story.
So when is this Democrat Slave going to wake the hell up and vote Republican? It isn’t the GOP that has kept them in chains all these years.
Funny, you never hear a GOP Legislator say that, but Joe Biden has no trouble characterizing the GOP that way!
Where’s the GOP Leadership in this vast power vacuum?
“Disregard all the phoney out of the workforce, disabled, and extended unemployedand it is well above that figure AND GETTING WORSE.”
Absolutely, and you can see the impact economically and demographically. Blacks themselves are voting for the people most determined to import the Hispanics to replace them.
Black America seems fine with it since 98% voted for it.
Blame your black President, racist.
When I was at the unemployment center I saw two clean, articulate (if Biden can say it and not get called racist, I can) black teenage boys. They had plastic combs stuck in their hair, with handles hanging out like rudders. They wore neat looking clothing, but the pants were way low and both were holding them up with one hand. The one kid says, I cant understand it. Ive applied just about everywhere and nobody will hire me. The other kid allowed that he had also. I wanted to say two things. One, do you have any skills worth the minimum wage? Probably not, but thats most likely not their fault. Two, who would hire somebody who must hold his pants up with one hand all the time? Id be willing to hire somebody with one hand, but you just look stupid and handicapping yourself for the sake of style speaks of a mentality that wont do well in the workplace. No potential employer is going to tell them that. They need somebody they respect in the community (a father, maybe?) take them aside and ask them to view themselves through a potential employers eyes.
Maybe they should change parties? Duh!
