NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous said Sunday that black Americans “are doing a full point worse” than when President Obama first took office.

“The country’s back to pretty much where it was when this president started,” Mr. Jealous told MSNBC host David Gregory on “Meet the Press.”“White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing a full point worse.”

The black unemployment rate was 12.7 percent when Mr. Obama took office. While the unemployment rate in the U.S. as a whole is below 8 percent, the Labor Department reported the black jobless rate was up from 12.9 percent to 14 percent for December.

The worst during Mr Obama’s first term was in September 2011, with 16.7 percent unemployment for blacks — the highest since 1983, the Department of Labor reports. The black teen jobless rate hit a staggering 39.3 percent in July 2012.

Another great source. Sheet is owned, operated, and run by the Unification Church under Sun Myung Moon; the 'moonies.' As rightist as the Washington Post is leftist, the newspaper has NEVER turned a profit since being founded in 1982. Looking for you spammer.

Typical lefty move. Shoot the messenger. How about arguing with the premise set forth?
Whatever

Are you trying to say the black population are busy working?

In this case, the 'messenger' picks and chooses what message he brings and from what source. Jealous has never been a fan of the POTUS publicly to begin with. Neither has the Washington Times. Jealous' opinions have often been denounced by the NAACP membership as not representative of the organization. Have at it spammer.

Not at all! However, the source of the story is suspect. Jealous has his own agenda and is known as a bitcher-and-whiner.

Liberals cannot defend their beliefs so they try to destroy the messenger. That is how Barry was elected to the senate and elected to the presidency. He did not win on accomlishments...he won by destroying others ..... Chicago thug politics

And one more time: The source of your allegations? Honest Liberals, and I consider myself one, are willing to defend their beliefs against critics. However, if the 'messengers,' of such criticism have an agenda of their own such criticism is suspect and treated accordingly. Still waiting on my spammer.

Google Jack and Jeri Ryan divorce records. Google Alice Palmer, Illinois State Senate. Take your pick of news stories. Surely you might believe The Chicago Tribune, or somebody.

In other words, your Republican hero had no accomplishments to list.
