    Re: Employment Situation Improves in October--Except for African Americans

    I am not sure what the complaint here is?

    Yes, unemployment remains stubbornly high among African Americans. So what do you think is the cause / solution?

    1. The problem is systemic racism and thus no one will hire them.

    Its obvious there are some racists out there, but I think they represent a pretty small minority of hiring managers.

    2. The problem is illegals / undocumented workers.

    Most jobs I have seen obvious illegals working were roofing, day labor construction hands, landscaping, farm hands, and nannies. I don't think any of those jobs excluding farm hands and nannies were disproportionately historically held by blacks.

    3. The problem is welfare.

    We don't have true welfare anymore. You can get it for a couple of years and your done. If you have children you can draw it longer, but even then its hardly a living. I mean hell if living in government projects with a 300 bucks or a so month in welfare is not an incentive to better yourself, then I don't know what is. Moreover, this whole notion that welfare creates an incentive for having kids they can't afford to take care of is pretty absurd when you consider the fact that having kids you can't take care of is a problem in virtually every third world country and virtually none of them have a welfare system. If welfare is the reason for blacks having kids they can't afford here in the USA, then why are they doing it in the DRC or Haiti??

    So what is the solution? What are yall bitching about the president not doing about this? Do you want him to issue an executive order telling every unemployed African American to get the f*** to work? I mean really, what do you want to do about it?

    6 years into hope and change a lot of people are still hurting, none more than blacks. Is that not a valid observation and criticism?

    Well just about everyone else is going to work now, so again what is your solution? You want the president to issue an executive order telling them all to get to work? What do you want to happen?

    Ive posted at length about my solutions. How many decades do you need before you see that the left wants to keep people dependent on its party?

    It always makes me incredulous when I hear conservatives pretending to empathize with Blacks.

    More hope and change, 6 recovery summers in.
    Should Barrack Obama hand hold every black man without a job to job fairs and everywhere else that is hiring? The economy is improving and the jobs are there, it is odd to see how the black population is being left behind, but I don't see how that responsibility falls in the hand of the President.

    Since always. Stop letting Rush Limbaugh tell you what liberals believe. It would be just as accurate to ask Michael Moore what conservatives believe.

    These people blame the president for the sun going down at night. But only when a Democrat is in office.

    Were you asleep during the Bush Administration? Apparently it is a sign of brilliance when liberals blame Bush alone for the global economic downturn. And how liberals are still blaming Bush today for problems that have been on Obamas desk for 6 years. Obama is president. He gets the blame when things go bad. Unless you want to argue here that he deserves no credit when things go well.
    The next president will inherit the mess that is Obamacare. If the next president cant handle it he shouldn't run for the office. Clearly, the problems left by Bush were too much for Obama. That makes Obama a failure. You just need to come to grips with that.
