George W. Bush is laying a claim to be the President who did the best job creating jobs for blacks. Currently, black unemployment is 9.4%, which is significantly lower than the 10% it averaged in the Clinton years. The current rate is also much lower than the average black unemployment rate over the past 30 years, which is 12.4%.

Blacks this, whites that, hispanics the other..
Sad, but a real part of life.
MLK had such great dreams, stereotyping such as this was not

Of course they hurt everybody but EVERYBODY didn't vote for Obama 95% in 2008 and 93% in 2012!! That's the point of the article and why Blacks shouldn't walk in lock step behind Democrats.edit on 21-2-2013 by neoholographic because: (no reason given)
Hispanics need to be weary because the Democrats are trying to turn them into the African American Community.
Blacks are seen as irrelevant because they're going to vote over 90% for the Democrat no matter what.
It's not so much that Obama has to DO something special for Blacks, it's that Obama's policies are hurting the middle class and poor and decimating blacks.
Vouchers help black children who attend some of the worst schools in the Country.
So overall, there wasn't much change but with blacks they were 24% more likely to enroll in College.
A 2009 study shows that illegal immigration hurts blacks.
So I see, Obama can't give us his greatness because he's blocked by fillibusters even though he had the House and Senate on lock when he first got into office and he could of done some of these wonderful things then.
This clearly shows the problem. Obama followers have nothing but excuses for Obama. He never has to take responsibility for nothing he has done. It's always someone elses fault.
This hurts the black community as well as the rest of the Country.
Yes, he did control the House under Speaker Pelosi. Many things are his fault because of his horrible policies. Of course everything is Republicans fault now because it couldn't be the fault of the great Obama.
If things were going great, people like you would be saying Obama should be on Mount Rushmore.
Obamacare which will ration healthcare to the elderly and disabled through the IPAB.
Stimulus and money that went to bankrupt companies like Solyndra.
The printing of cheap dollars that go to multi-nationals who invest in emerging markets overseas.
Drone strikes that kill innocent children.
Expansion of who can be targeted by these Drone strikes by Holder.
Fast and Furious
Payroll tax holiday which is just being taken away and it becomes regressive.
Obama does nothing to reduce the debt and he does nothing about Medicare and Social Security for future generations.
The list can go on and on but it's silly to get sidetracked. This is about Obama and his policies that have hurt the black community and the economy as a whole not a debate about Obamacare.
