Black Unemployment Leaps to 13%
BREITBART ^ | 9/6/13 | John Nolte

Posted on 09/06/2013 1:57:01 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

While there was all kinds of bad news for everyone in the August employment and jobs numbers released Friday, the news was especially bad for black Americans. Out of every group listed in the Bureau of Labor Statistics report report (age, gender, race, etc.) the unemployment rate among blacks increased the most; almost a full half-point, from 12.6% to 13%.

This news is in line with a report released earlier this week that showed black homeownership levels are at an eighteen year low.

I helped with that. Fired 2 lazy malcontents with chips on their shoulders and hired an Indian and a Korean female. My HR is happy with “diversity” and my productivity goes up, and heartburn down.

I bet the number is a bit higher. Probably around 20%.

It’s a good thing half of the black unemployed aren’t counted. Likely it’s really 20%.

Obama wants to sell the use of troops to Saudi Arabia. We’re told blacks are about 98% supporters of Obama. So what’s the problem? He should just tell them they’re drafted.

Well, I’m sure more support from the Black community for increased minimum wages, free abortions, more school breakfast, lunch, dinner programs, higher taxes, more leftist crony-capitalism will do the trick.

We just haven’t had enough of these policies, that’s all.

probably around 20%

How is the black prison population counted? It's substantial enough to skew the statistic if they aren't counted as unemployed.

What I found amazing was the 13% number. I have long thought white unemployment is between 15-20% at LEAST, and black unemployment has to be between 25-30%.

Excellent question! If you include those in jail/prison I would bump it up another 5%.

13% (really more like 23%) are unemployed; however, 97% (really 115%) voted for it, so why should I care?

If it were 50% black unemployment, 95% would still vote for the Bamster. It’s a tribal thing.

Attitude is always the decider. A good attitude and lack of education and/or training, and you’ll still make your way in life. But even with a good education, a person with a bad attitude will always be a loser.
