Friday's jobs report was disappointing, but it also contained a truly heartbreaking statistic. Black teen unemployment is a shocking 41.6%. In July last year, the unemployment was considerably lower, at 36%. That almost half of black teens who want to work can't find jobs is a stain on Obama's economic policies.

This isn't a numbers trick. This isn't a rate based on the whole black teen population in the country. This is the proportion of the black teen population that is looking for work but can't find a job. Just in March, the number was eight points lower at 33%. The white teen unemployment rate is half the black rate, although still high at 20%.

The heartbreaking thing is that these teens haven't given up hope and left the job market, something that has artificially lowered the overall unemployment rate. The unemployment rate is based on those who want a job and are trying to find one.

In recent months, President Obama and national Democrats have increased calls to raise the minimum wage or impose "living wages" on certain companies in urban areas. Minimum wage jobs, however, are often "first jobs," providing that critical first rung on the jobs' ladder. Indeed, more than two-thirds of minimum wage employees receive a raise within the first year on the job.

You can't get a raise, however, without first having a job. Our economic policies are abandoning a generation and threatening to create a permanent underclass. It is shameful.

Of course, when we legalize millions of criminal aliens, employment opportunities for blacks will be dramatically improved.

True. But FRB does have the data to make a determination, unlike the guessing and analysis that cons use instead. And they still continue to accumulate them, unlike your one hit wonder sources.

As I said, your links offer nothing in the way of data unlike the FRB sites.

It's their data against the guesses of those who prefer a different take or have a political agenda to follow.

You can disagree with me all you want. It doesn't change the facts of the matter.

The current Fed is purely political, pumping money into the economy for life support.

The Clinton Adminstration and the Psuedo Liberals along with the Federal Reserve worked together that created the Economical Policy with the Federal Reserves Data which created the 2008 Financial Crisis and dont you remember Greeenspan testifying before Congress and was that data wrong.

Wow. So what's all the cock-n-bull these people are passing about CRA and Clinton and democrats and the cause of the financial meltdown?

I agree. Bad loans are bad loans. And clearly banks were using capitalism to make money hand over fist while screwing the people they loaned money to.

And they knew it.

But hey, if your fellow cons want to blame someone for CRA, they need to do more balanced research. Because obviously they are so politically skewed they can't see the truth from their politics.

And the CRA debacle you people are claiming was caused by democrats was simply a capitalistic run by corporations to make money.

CRA wasn't the issue. Cons just want to make it that way.

What the hell are y'all talking about? The Fed is money motivated, profit motivated. The whole purpose of the Fed is, to play class against class to economically. Knowing full well, the more money they dump into the economy, the more 1sided things become but, don't get it twisted. Given the opportunity, they'd obliterate the republican party, just as would the democratic party.
