    They are, there is no way around the facts. They are still among the highest numbers in unemployment and worse than when he took office, they still make well under the median for the country and less now than under Bush. Personally, I think the Dems. just use the black population, promise them the moon and never deliver. All one has to do is look at the cities under Democratic mayors - high poverty, high crime and low education and getting worse all the time. One would think that the Democrat mayors would do all the things they say Conservatives Hate and lift up the poor black family out of poverty, they don't. Dems. just talk a good game.

    If jobs are the core issue, who is really to blame for not investing in Americans, creating jobs right here that millions of people would love to fill?

    I blame Obamacare. I know I'm not hiring because of it and 79% of all small business owner feel the same way. We can't real numbers on what it's going to cost. So we can't make a budget plan. It's killing jobs.

    Jobs are the issue and are tough(er) to get. My plant closed down in 6/12. Worked semi-PT for last 5 months beating the streets very hard! Starting my new, full time/full benefits job w/ much better pay come this Monday. It was hard fought, required much effort and not easy. But, so is life (and it ain't gettin' easier)!

    @NTBFW BS. No need to lie about you owning a business, because if you did the only reason you'd ever 'not hire' is because the demand for your business does not warrant it. If it did you'd find a way to hire so as not to lose business.

    This has been publicized for quite some time but the Obama Media Group whispered it instead of shouting it out. Hmmm....of course that was before the election. What took the NAACP so long? Guess they were satisfied with the status quo.

    Barack Husssein Obama takes black people for granted. He knows that they will vote race everytime. It's time for them to wake up.

    @seedtick Why do you just say President Obama is the only one that takes Blacks for granted? I am a 55 year old Black man and I say all politicians take Blacks for granted. It's the American way.

    @Roco I really believe that he does. There always seems to be some rift with Black Ministers, NAACP, or someone about what he is not doing for the Black community.
    I am not talking about that "bring home the bacon" comment from an incompetent and failed city government in Detroit. And, he still gets 95% of the Black vote. Why would he not take that for granted? I can tell you that White politicians do not take the Black community for granted when a Black candidate is running. And, they are right to feel that way because the Black candidate can count on 60% or better of the Black vote going in. It would take a bad screw up in the campaign to lose that.

    Black people were duped just like the rest of us, regardless of race or ethnicity. African Americans share all of the same fears that many of the rest of us do. Using my own general area as an example, the young people are especially affected. There is an absence of work for all young people, an increase in crimes such as home invasions, assaults with robbery as the motive, burglaries and so on. Very serious crimes that involve weapons and result in physical harm or murder usually are fueled by the need for drugs. These crimes are not exclusive to the black community but are typical of those who are 35 or under. When Obama was elected in 2008, many of us, regardless of race thought he was heralding a new chapter reminiscent of the ideals espoused by Dr. King. Instead, he has drained our coffers, discouraged entrepreneurship, involved us in even more foreign conflicts and like so many recent presidents, pandered to the native and international elite. Although Obama is of African heritage, he does not share in the heritage of most African-Americans. He may have been a "community organizer" but does not feel empathy for those who have struggled and now see their youth slipping away into the world of gangs, drugs and crime. Obama's presidency is a self-serving step forward for him alone into the venue of international "players." We have all been duped, and twice yet. Shame on us.

    Of course black folks are worse off under Obama but the MSM won't tell you that. I guess they are too busy getting thrills up their legs and messing their pants to do much reporting. The state of modern day journalism is a joke.

    except the storyu itself and the graph they base it on show the opposite is true, just the normal recession job losses as usual....

    trying to make controversy out of nothing....

    Precisely, all it shows is that we're still recovering from the recession and desperately need to address the unemployment w/ investments from our govt.

    What are you talking about? The story is that the black unemployment gap has increased under Obama, and the black unemployment rate has gone up over most of his term (the graph shows the same). They story also says the gap increased in 2012 which is not represented in the graph.

    @AceLuby because it worked so well for the African-Americans so far? Maybe another 6 trillion and he can lower their unemployment rate?
  • #66

    @Yank In fact it did work (well 2 trillion at least, the other 4 was due to the GOP recession and reckless spending they do when they get the white house). Notice the spike upwards and then the leveling off, that leveling off happened after the stimulus.

    Black people have been worse and worse off since around the time of LBJ. After 50 years of Democratic rule, the black middle class has been almost totally dismantled.

    Democrat liberals are the real racists, don't let them forget it.

    It was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.
    Democrat Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs, after 50 years of integration under largely Republican administrations.
    It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted Jim Crow Laws.
    It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted "separate but equal".
    It was the Democrat Party in the South that supported the Ku Klux Klan.
    It was George Wallace and the Democrat Party in the South that said "Segregation Forever".
    It was Orval Faubus and the Democrat Party that wanted the Arkansas National Guard to enforce segregation. It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham
    It was the Democrats who kept Grand Kleagle Byrd in the party. Grand Kleagle is a high position in the Klan for the most successful recruiters, he had to preach a lot of hate to earn that title. 
    It was Democrats who called General Colin Powell a "house nigger".
    It was Democrats who called Condi Rice - who grew up with and knew the little girls in Birmingham who were blown up, by Democrats - an "Aunt Jemima" and ran cartoons of her with fat lips doing Hattie McDaniel riffs.
    It was democrat obama supporters, who called Stacy Dash a hundred different racist names for daring to leave the Democrat plantaion.(sic) It's the Democrats who hold annual dinners honoring Andrew Jackson, who owned slaves and who orchestrated the Removal, the Trail of Tears, the near genocide of several of the Indian Nations.

    And by the way, it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.
