15% of Black Folks Are Not Employed

Black jobless rate hits depression level as the summer months approach. Uh oh...


As WorldNetDaily reports, the jobless rate in Black America has reached a staggering %15 percent, five points above the national average and about twice that of White Americans. Even more alarming is that fact that this jobless trend is coinciding with the summer months, a time when people of all races, credos and orientations have been known to act up. Adding to statistics worthy of head-shaking is the fact that the areas of highest unemployment are in Blue state urban centers--Detroit, Cleveland, DC, LA, etc.--that all suffered race riots in the 1960s. Obviously the times are different than they were 40 years ago, but this situation is certainly one to keep an eye on considering history has a funny was of repeating itself.
