According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate as of August 2014 for white Americans is down to 5.3%. The unemployment rate for black Americans is more than doubled the figure for whites at 12.0%. The unemployment rate for white teens 16 to 19 years of age is 17.0% and the rate for black teens 16 to 19 years of age is nearly doubled at 32.9%.
Black Americans have been after Barack Obama to keep his promise of creating more job opportunities for them. Like all of the other promises Obama made, the promise for more jobs for blacks has been broken and cast away.
Just look at Obama’s policies in the energy field. He’s launched a war against the coal and oil industries where a substantial number of blacks are employed. Obama has thrown billions of taxpayer dollars to green energy development, a field that has fewer blacks than in the fossil fuel industry. I’m not trying to be racist or discriminatory, but just stating the obvious.
