Keep on bringing that number down! It's great to hear good news like this once in a while.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/06/23/black-unemployment-lowest-level-17-years/



Unemployment among black Americans ages 16 years and over fell to 7.5 percent in May, its lowest level since December 2000.

Black unemployment has been on the decline since February — falling from (February) 8.1, (March) 8.0, (April) 7.9, and (May) 7.5 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The national unemployment rate in May was 4.3 percent, its lowest level since May 2001.

Unemployment for black Americans has historically hovered below their white counterparts. The Great Recession drove black unemployment near Great Depression-era levels, reaching 16.8 percent in March 2010.

And yet you couldn't relay it without linking us to Brietbart, blaming it on Obama and implying Trump somehow had something to do with it.

Black unemployment has been on the decline since February April 2011.

Hey, remember when unemployment numbers were fake? Pepperidge Farms remembers.

Because it wasn't that long ago. They were "fake" according to Trump from September 2012 to exactly January 2017.

Posted some good news and even removed the political pointing part of the story and yet you two are still too obsessed about it coming from Breitbart to be glad conditions for Americans are slowly improving. FFS stop with the super-hyper partisan politics for a second.

Nice try, but you removed the political part of the story after we replied. The forum does timestamp these things you know.

Also, criticizing us for partisan politics in the same breath as Brietbart?

Nevermind that an accusation of partisan political behaviour from yourself is like having a seagull accuse me of bad table manners.

Uncle: You really like reading stormfront don't you. You seem to talk about it all the time.

Runec: I never included the political parts. I removed something that perhaps you were interpreting as political so we can move past partisan politics and instead be happy about the low unemployment levels. No such luck. Seems your just here to start a partisan fight.

Really good news. Wages, workforce participation and crime levels need to improve in our community but it's doable. Boost the number of jobs, create opportunities.

Stop trying to reeducate bigots and deniers, folks. You're only lending them validation, which they will squander.

I think you accidentally posted on the wrong topic. This topic is about unemployment levels for "black" Americans.

Was talking with my old man earlier. Seems things are going good in America under Trump.
Lowering unemployment, improved economy, strong dollar, etc

I reckon we need some yanks to come here to Australia to help us out with getting Aborigines into more work. I see Māoris and Africans working but not many Aborigines.
Send Trump down! lol nar i dunno maybe send down some succesfull African Americans to tutor and inspire.
Our governemt and the people themselves aren't making any progess in the matter.
Thank god alot of them are great at Australian football.

It was trending in that direction long before Trump was elected.
