if you think the black unemployment rate is high now, wait until post amnesty for the illegals. they will compete with blacks for the low-skilled, entry level jobs--along with housing, social services, healthcare, educational resources, prison space...LAMBRO: Unemployed and black in Obama’s America
Jobless rate is worse than his predecessor’s
President Obama’s failed job policies are facing bitter criticism from black Americans, whose leaders now say black unemployment has grown worse under his presidency.
After four years of holding their tongues and remaining quiet in the face of sharply rising black unemployment rates, top political leaders from the Congressional Black Caucus to the NAACP have opened fire on the White House.
Mr. Obama won 96 percent of the black vote in 2008 and about the same percentage in 2012, despite years of very high unemployment levels among black workers. At 14 percent for adults and 43.1 percent for 16- to 19-year-olds, blacks still have the highest jobless rate of any minority group in the United States.
Black leaders in Congress largely kept their complaints to themselves throughout Mr. Obama’s first term in office and during his re-election campaign. The nation’s black leadership has become a great deal more vocal lately about fewer employment opportunities and a weak, lackluster economy. They are especially unhappy with the fact that Mr. Obama has placed relatively few black officials in top-level positions in his second-term administration.
It didn’t get that much media attention, but shortly after the president was inaugurated in January, NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous went on nationwide television to condemn Mr. Obama’s weak job-creation record, charging that black Americans “are doing a full point worse” than when Mr. Obama became president.
“The country’s back to pretty much where it was when this president started,” Mr. Jealous said on “Meet the Press” Jan. 27.
OBAMA AND HIS BIGOTTED SUPPORTERS ONLY CARE ABOUT THE GAY AGENDA AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
