    The Private sector is improving, and more jobs becoming available for everyone. To simply blame the President for one ethnic not sharing that economic success. (That ironically shares a similar skin color) is erroneous, and at worst, dishonest.

    Actually, the private sector is still struggling with a economy thats still on life support.

    Why are interest rates still so low if the economy is improving dramatically ?

    New part time jobs that aren't even keeping up with population and median income levels still below 2007 levels with Higher poverty and a record low labor participation rate is a far better indicator than the lefts assertions that we're in the Middle of a strong recovery.

    Wait until the Business mandates of Obama Care kick in. Thaat will snuff out what little lifes left in the worst recovery since WWII.

    Comprehensive Sex Education in school, they fight it, they only want Abstinence only Education.
    Providing Contraceptives in Schools, they fight it with the absurd argument that kids won't have sex if you don't give them condoms.

    Until you want to get with the program on actually reducing unplanned pregnancies and teen pregnancies in inner city communities, quite bitching about high levels of unemployment in those same communities.
    Amazing.

    The only serious conservative attempt to address the problem was the Bush Admin had a program of marriage education classes for low income families. Of course, it failed.

    The problem is you can't put together a successful marriage when the parents are in their teens and a in many cases a grandparent is raising the kids. You have to promote planned pregnancies and delaying having kids until you have an education. Its a brutal cycle. Poverty leads to teen pregnancies and unwed mothers which then leads to more poverty. It didn't start with Obama. In fact it was as bad if not worse when the guy on your avatar was in office too.

    Its almost like kids just randomly pop up, who's responsible? Is it a good idea to pretend all thats missing is another govt program and handout?

    Here's a news flash, me and a lot of people have created a **** load of jobs for a lot of workers, but I have never, never will create a job for a black person, or any other minority progressives claim they care for. What you pukes do is buy votes with other people's money. The only jobs you create are glorified community organizers who never have to make payroll, hire or fire, and never have to look into the eyes of a worker and friend and tell him there is no more work because some progressive asshole has decided his job has to go to a black, or that it's going to be a bleak winter because some other progressive asshole has ****ed up the economy..again.
    You seem nice.

    One reason black unemployment is so bad is because it's very hard to get a job once you've been released from prison, and blacks have been disproportionately incarcerated (and quite often given harsher sentences for the same crimes as whites) for decades.

    Kobie, many of the drug laws that hit minority communities the hardest were passed by black politicians. Party of the problem is that liberalism hurts the people they "claim" to help the most.

    Any evidence at all that this statement is actually true?
