Obama Democrats destroy Black employment, African American unemployment up 6 percent since Democrats took congress, Over 1 percent in Obama admin, Numbers don’t lie Obama does
“The United States economy has lost more jobs than it has added since the recovery began over a year ago.”…NY Times Sept. 20, 2010.
“With a 63.7% labor force participation, “conditions in the labor market are considerably worse than indicated” in July’s report”…economist Joshua Shapiro, WSJ August 3, 2012
“Numbers don’t lie, Obama does.”…Citizen Wells
Rush Limbaugh had a black caller from Georgia today. The caller voiced his frustration with blacks supporting Obama and the Democrat Party even though unemployment has gotten worse under their regimes. He made the example of blacks leaving unemployment lines to vote for Obama and then returning to the unemployment line.
Here are the numbers from the US Labor Dept.
In January of 2007 when the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress the unemployment rate for blacks was 7.9 percent.
In January of 2009 when Obama took control of the White House the unemployment rate for blacks was 12.7 percent.
In January of 2013 the unemployment rate for blacks was 13.8 percent.
That is a 6 percent increase since the Democrats took control of Congress and over 1 percent increase since Obama took control of the White House.
“Citizen Wells: I smell a rat. A NC Democrat Convention rat.
Also significant from the report are the following unemployment increases from April to June 2012.
Blacks: From 13.0 to 14.4 percent.
Asians: From 5.2 to 6.3 percent.
Hispanics: From 10.3 to 11.0 percent.”
From Citizen Wells October 21, 2012.
“California has the third highest unemployment rate in the country at 10.2 percent. CA has been getting a lot of press recently for suspicious reporting the prior week that skewed the US Labor Dept. unemployment claims report. What you are probably not getting from the media is the fact that since February 2012, the labor force participation rate has dropped more than the unemployment rate.”
“The following data is taken from the California Labor Market Review for September 2012.
Unemployment rate 10.9 % LF Participation rate 63.3 %.
Unemployment rate 10.2 % LF Participation rate 62.4 %.
The Labor Force Participation Rate dropped more than the unemployment rate.
So the following claim:
“The California unemployment rate was 10.2 percent in September, down 0.4
percentage point from August.”
is very misleading.
The following facts are also interesting.
“By race and ethnicity, the September 2012 unemployment rate for blacks was 18.1 percent, Hispanics 13.2 percent, and whites 10.5 percent.””
