From a purely statistical standpoint on employment this is 100% correct.
About the best thing to be under Bush is Hispanic, second African American, third a women (any race)...last a white male.
I spent days in the employment data over this at one point because I couldn't believe what I was seeing, but it makes sense considering what Bush has
done to our economy (and I wasn't using the right filter...EDUCATION).
As the white collar jobs get outsourced, and all the new jobs are entry level blue collar or retail...it's not so much that minorities are prospering
under Bush as it's people with the lowest education and training
(no matter what your race) are doing far better (proportionally) than they
used to compared to your average educated, middle class white guy that once did great and now doesn't.
That African Americans though are doing any better in employment is just a by product of what Bush has specifically been trying to do for 4 years...
that is BUY THE HISPANIC VOTE
with immigration amnesty, increased welfare and food stamp funding ($1.8 billion targeting just Hispanics) and a
general work friendly (pro-corporate) environment for crop pickers, not to mention conservative pro-catholic vote pandering with Anti-Gay and
So don't even start on the "Dems buy minority votes" crap with me. I know what's up Mi Amigo.
