More than half of all of African-Americans and other non-Hispanic blacks in the city who were old enough to work had no job at all this year, according to an analysis of employment data compiled by the federal Labor Department. And when black New Yorkers lose their jobs, they spend a full year, on average, trying to find new jobs — far longer than New Yorkers of other races.
... fewer than half — 49.2 percent — of all black women of working age in the city had jobs in the year that ended in May. That was about the same rate for black men in the same period, as well as in the first four months of 2012.
... monthly surveys of city residents have produced a persistently high unemployment rate for the city. It rose to 9.7 percent in May, not far off the 10 percent level at which it peaked during the recession.I WISH THAT BLACKS WOULD VOTE ACCORDINGLY.
AND VOTE ROMNEY.
OBAMA'S ECONOMIC POLICIES HAVE BEEN AWFUL FOR BLACKS.
AND HIS SOCIAL POLICIES GO AGAINST HE CHURCH.
VOTE ACCORDINGLY. PLEASE.
OBAMA DOESN'T HATE BLACKS; HE ISN'T TARGETING BLACKS - THOUGH THE EFFECTS OF HIS PRESIDENCY MAKE IT SEEM HE DOES.
THE PROBLEM IS SOCIALISM. IT'S THE ROAD TO SERFDOM.
OBAMA'S POLICIES ARE KILLING THE ECONOMY, AND THAT HURTS PEOPLE AT THE BOTTOM HALF THE MOST.
