According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the biggest change in employment over the last month affected black workers. In September, the unemployment rate for blacks was 13.4 percent. In October, that number jumped to 14.3 percent, an almost a full percentage point change, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Unemployment for whites remained steady at 7 percent.
Likewise, the unemployment rate remain unchanged for teenagers (23.7 percent) and adult men (7.3 percent).
For Asians the rate ticked up, from 4.8 percent tp 4.9 percent. Likewise for Hispanics, from 9.9 percent to 10 percent.
The unemployment rate for adult women shifted up to 7.2 percent from 7.0 percent.
And, of course, overall, the unemployment rate went up from 7.8 percent in September to 7.9 percent in October.
After Barry’s historic beatdown on Tuesday- the brothers will
NEVER admit switching their vote to Romney.
BUT, that’s EXACTLY what is going to happen.
That’s because even they know Ozero is a loser and will not
bring them a better life with vapid promises of “just hold
on” a little mo.
A reasonable brother will NEVER admit voting for Romney
either, because their worst fear is being labeled an
“Uncle Tom” by their militant friends.
Obama is part...
1) Jimmah Carter...
2) Bill Clintoon...
3) PeeWee Herman...
** and blacks know it..
The Kenyan will still get 95% of the black vote. Sad really. Folks need to wake up and realize skin color does not trump competency.
How in the world do they reconcile the skin color with getting a job? Their priorities are so screwed up.
The left is happy. One of the desires of marxists is to create a permanent unhappy underclass which they can goad into rising up to overthrow the established order, and in the ensuing confusion, establish a marxist regime.
(don’t we already have one?)
I sometimes wonder if any of the black men in my family are going to give the GOP a try this time around. Lord knows I haven't had any success in convincing them since 2000, when I made it known that I was voting for GWB.
I'm hoping that Obama has finally convinced a few of them to quietly switch.
Blacks who are unemployed, but who are otherwise hard working, respectable people, don't think like that. Those folks are honestly considering switching sides in this election, or at the very least, too demoralized and disillusioned to vote.
The ones who value skin color over having a job, aren't all that interested in working anyway.
This shows how little the Romney administration cares about blacks. It NEVER would have happened with Obama as president.
How nuts is this? Are they blaming whitey? They will be if Romney gets elected. Most new jobs have gone to foreigners.
