A lot of the jobs that are looking for employees are highly skilled jobs, entertainment or service jobs for the upper class. And since white society feels there aren't any educated blacks and don't want to hire blacks for jobs with any contact with the public blacks will remain out of work.
They need to create their own jobs bunky~!

The Mexicans are taking the jobs that accounted for black simulated progress now. The foreign visa workers from India are taking the skilled positions. They both suit the requirements of the government mandated hiring practices (Affirmative Action), and are preferred by employers.
It's about to get much worse. If you think you are safe, or that you have "made it"...you are about to be very disappointed. You never make it back.
