"Black unemployment rate: Highest since 1984" And Guess What? That's Raaaaacist!

Algernon Austin's not got a lot to say about "Who" or What policies" might be causing this:
Even when you compare black and white workers, same age range, same education, you still see pretty significant gaps in unemployment rates," said Algernon Austin, director of the Race, Ethnicity, and the Economy program at the Economic Policy Institute. "So I do think the fact of racial discrimination in the labor market continues to play a role." -- CNN Money Sep. 2, 2011

His hope has not changed.

Your Say

I can't recall when blacks in general ever made much of a fuss over periods of high unemployment. I don't think it scares them much.

The only tea the 'hoodies' know or want is what they can roll and smoke. Otherwise, git out ma face bitch!

What's bitterly amusing is the "Official Obama Website" link at the bottom of the article.

Let's hear it for targeted advertising.

Could this be a strategy to incite demands for reparations? I don't believe these indications are accidental... We aren't considering the source in the correct context.. Obama was, is and always will be a community organizer - they never let a good crisis go to waste.

Trust me down here. I have seen the NAACP in action. They'd rather see the baby cut in half....

Leave it to the NAACP to stink up a free lunch. Giving is taking more! The consummate attitude-work is another unavoidable four letter word.

"Algernon?" The dweeb's name is "Algernon?" Is "Austen Goolsbie" his cousin?

Shoudn't these inbred finishing-school prestentious names be a tipoff to NOT listen to them or read anything they write?
