Eff The Recession: Study Shows That 38% Of African-Americans Lost Their Jobs Over The Last Three Years

- By Bossip Staff

If you don’t think the recession is affecting Blacks more than anyone else, check again.

According to a survey conducted by Your Black World, 38 percent of African-Americans lost their jobs in the last three years. Of those people, more than 88 percent were unable to find jobs of equal or better pay, which means they have to downgrade to get back on their feet. More than 67 percent of the 839 respondents were college educated, too.

To make matters more striking, the problems have affected African Americans at every socio-economic level. You know what they say: if America has a cold, Black America has a flu, and this is just another example. Time to get Barack Obama on this and help out, don’t you think?
