At 12.1 percent the Black unemployment rate is nearly double the national unemployment rate of 6.6 percent. The unemployment rate for Black men over 20 years old jumped from 11.5 percent in December 2013 to 12 percent in January, compared to White men who experienced a decrease in their unemployment rate from 5.6 percent in December 2013 to 5.4 percent in January...

Heckuva job, Barry.
But now they have health care ‘coverage’ that ‘cant be taken away’, unless those mean old white Republicans get elected again.
haven’t you heard ?
unemployment =leisure time=freedom.
This is where REPUBLICANS need to wake up. I KNOW there are plenty of black conservatives who OUGHT TO BE OUT EVERY DAY ripping into the fascist regime.
Black unemployment rises....??? Really?
But...but...they LOVE him!!
12% ? What’s the REAL number ? It has to be 25%+ at minimum.
Funny, the news this morning had Dems claiming that Black unemployment is improving under Obama.
Blacks don’t work is because it is more lucrative to be on welfare and get all that free stuff. Why work when some other dude will pay your way? Many, many blacks live better than you or I as they pull down their free funding, free food, free housing, etc, etc. How long of a list do I need to create here? They know the system and how to use it to their best advantage. THAT is why they don’t work and it is NOT because there are not jobs, why are all those illegals sneaking in here to work for a better future?
...and what’s the effective rate?
It’s why it is a moral (and fiscal) imperative to end the gravy train.
Of course it has. I’ve noticed that a person can’t hire a black to work because of the freebies they get around here far exceed what a small business can afford to pay an entry worker. Not only are they given preference, the black community communicates within themselves where to apply and readily obtain freebies.
oh bull hockey, it’s gott be close to 30% or more
That’s why they love him. More free time. Cant play knock out games while working 40 hrs a week.
A snide question: Are those in jail counted as part of the labor force in computing unemployment statistics?
And who is to blame for this mess? According to the Democrat pols quoted in the article, it’s the GOP for not handing out more benefits to those “looking for work.”
They’ve been freed of their Job Lock!
Actually, Obama doesn’t even have to bother with successful actions. He only has to lie, and the media will confirm the lie. Job done.
I see a fundamental disconnect with the people here commenting on this change in percentages.
INCREASING UNEMPLOYMENT _IS_ "IMPROVING".
No sympathies here. The unemployed continue to support the indonesian/kenyan commie usurper because "he's a brother" and he supplies them with welfare and free 0bamaphones.
It is time to tie compensation to productivity and break this cycle of despair.
I wonder what percentage of black men 25-45 have full time jobs.
Don’t forget that those in prison aren’t counted as “unemployed.”
How do blacks feel about Democrats wanting to legalize a few million more illegals for them to compete with for jobs?
Odd how NO ONE at the New York Times or Washington Post ever walks into a black community and speaks to everyday black people. Really, a reporter could just ask questions.
But that won’t happen. Reporters will speak to self appointed ‘community leader’ - and get the ‘white liberal elite’ answer he’s looking for.. Idiots.
