    Could your arguments be anymore transparent.
    what has Obama done for the black community other than provide a record unemployment rate?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    This is freakin incredible!....AMERICA, LAND OF OPPORTUNITIES.

    Get over the white, black, brown racism bs. The essence of capitalism is not just making ****ing money. It is the freedom to do whatever the **** you want, and to succeed or fail at what you want to do as the result of your skills, work, filling a need, etc. If you want to be a professional basketball player at 5' 6", you better be damn good. And if you are damn good, then you have the opportunity to succeed.

    EVERYONE has the opportunity to succeed

    hahahaha "Blacks should pick themselves up" whilst at the same time asking "What has the first black president done to help them with record unemployment, WHEN THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS EXPERIENCING UNEMPLOYMENT AT THIS TIME, and blacks have historically had lower unemployment then the national average.

    Hell, beyond the tone of Obama's skin he has almost nothing in common with the blacks in this country who think that "The Man" is keeping them down. His dad is from Kenya, not some inner city hellhole and he went to the finest of private schools. ...Obama knows exactly jack **** about what it's like to be poor in this country.

    Everyone experiencing this:

    More than half of black males between the ages of 16 and 19 are unemployed, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And that's only counting those seeking work. Economists say legions of other young black men — nobody knows how many — have given up looking.

    Well, he knows a little more than most, having worked as a community organizer in Chicago for some years.

    Employment and Unemployment Among Youth Summary


    EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT AMONG YOUTH -- SUMMER 2011


    From April to July 2011, the number of employed youth 16 to 24 years old rose by 1.7
    million to 18.6 million, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. This year,
    the share of young people who were employed in July was 48.8 percent, the lowest July
    rate on record for the series, which began in 1948. (The month of July typically is
    the summertime peak in youth employment.) Unemployment among youth increased by 745,000
    between April and July, more than last year’s increase of 571,000, but well below the
    levels seen in 2008 and 2009 (1.2 and 1.1 million, respectively). (Because this analysis
    focuses on the seasonal changes in youth employment and unemployment that occur each
    spring and summer, the data are not seasonally adjusted.)
    Youth finding work across the developed world is actually becoming a huge problem. Youth are finding it increasingly difficult to find employment, especially those that took out massive loans to university, came out with a bachelors and now have to pay that back.

    And that article was from January 10th 2010. Not saying the numbers have dramatically improved as the top obviously points out.

    You missed the point, which was that black unemployment was already high. They are being hit harder because on average the bad economy is hitting people with less education harder, and on average blacks have less education.
