Jesus Take The Wheel: Black Unemployment At All Time High 16.7%, While National Unemployment Remains At 9.1%

- By Bossip Staff

SMH. This is so sad that unemployment rates are soaring with blacks and and blacks only:

The black unemployment rate has just reached the highest rate ever, since the first black president reached the office, according to a recent report by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Black unemployment is now at an astounding 16.7 percent, which is up from last month’s 15.9 percent, according to the department. The highest for black unemployment, since Obama took office, was 16.5 percent in March and April of 2010.

Black lawmakers have been very public in their comments about how Obama needs to do more during a jobs tour conducted over the summer.

Black leaders also traveled to the White House in July to make sure debt ceiling cuts did not adversely impact their community.

Obama, the nation’s first black to hold the office, has said that he will not target jobs to individual races. He will address Congress next week on the matter.

Overall, national unemployment remained at 9.1 percent, according to the department.

    I c ignorance is bliss with the youngins in here. But to the issue, Republicans r scumbags for preventing Americans the opportunity to have jobs. The job losses exist b/c these republican and some blue dog democratic politicians r creating and manufacturing an artificial economic depression where blacks r hurt the most by it. They r also using ideological rhetoric to validate their actions.

    When the U.R. Got their credit rating downgraded it is fact that republicans cheered. Then @ the end of July the job figures came out showing job growth. They did not cheer then but cheered today again.
