Michelle Bachman::Obama has failed the African American and Hispanic communites.
The supporters of Obama will probably respond to what Bachman said by simply deflecting attention away from what she said, and then smearing her as a racist for mentioning it. The "truth is a you know what". It's ironic that the first black president of the United States would be the one to oversea a black unemployment rate that is almost double that of the already high national average. I can only help to wonder did Obama ever promote those mythical shovel ready jobs to unemployed blacks who are desperate to find work? The unemployment rate among blacks was actually much lower under the two terms of a white neo conservative republican then under a black socialist democratic president. Go figure.
The unemployment rate for blacks under Bush was ironically 9%
The unemployment rate for blacks under Clinton was 10%
The unemployment rate for blacks under Obama 16.1%
Even CBS News can't ignore the obvious. Black unemployment hits depression era levels.
With so many skilled workers and people with college degrees accepting lower paying jobs, because they are desperate for work as well, where does that leave people who aren't skilled or highly educated? The black community is always going to have a higher unemployment rate then the national average for obvious reasons. Poverty, illiteracy and the fragmented social upbringing of black children are key factors. When the national unemployment rate goes up, black and Hispanics unemployment are impacted the hardest. So many blacks invested so much time and effort into Obama, and look what they've gotten in return, nothing. The urban saying goes "There is nothing going on but the rent". The rent still needs to be collected every month, but are jobs being created so that the rent can be paid?
