calibro saidumm... what research are you looking at? the biggest jump in unemployment by percentage for african americans happened under the bush administration. it's been pretty much that same rate as when obama took office... which included the height of the recession.
ummm... a jump that was made even worse under the Obama Administration - and where the margins widened versus other races under the Obama Administration.
not to belabor the point... but the jump then went down... under the obama administration... which is to say it rose at the peak of the recession, then has continued to fall... the rate for african americans never returned their original levels under bush.
so, again, please explain this:
obama takes office with a record-level of african american unemployment (record for the recent time) in which the recession, which originates during the bush presidency, claims many jobs. the rate climbs and peaks under obama, but then drops to the level (roughly) of when he took office. so your point is they're suffering disproportionately because the previous administration made their unemployment skyrocket, then the current administration has been battling it to bring it down, which it has since the recession's peak, and this is obama's fault?
The alternative view which I have pointed out is that the unemployment rate for blacks is higher than it was when Obama came to office, that the impact of the recession was worse for Blacks and to add to this, Obama has declared the recession officially over.
What's worse as I point out is that the labor participation rate has been falling which probably means that that blacks are also disproportionately represented in those dropping out. Either way, it means that the unemployment rate would be higher if it weren't for the drop outs because of poor job opportunities. Further, I would suggest Obama's policies have meant that the rate hasn't fallen faster.
again, the current unemployment rate for african americans is about the same as when he took office. and stop talking about probably because that isn't true. we're not looking to the labor participation rate for information about african american employment because you can't make any positive conclusions from it. zero. zilch. it's not how the methodology of that statistic works.
further, the recession was declared ended by the economic definition of a recession, not because the president magically decided it was. it peaked under him, which is why unemployment spiked under him... and it has since been dropping. if anything, african americans suffered most in terms of hiked unemployment under bush's second term.
i have no idea where you base anything off. all the statistics i post seem to counter your assertions and you keep on shifting points or drawing erroneous or spurious claims.
so for the last time:
1. in terms of unemployment, up to today, blacks have had a basically unchanged percentage in unemployment since obama took office, and the significant rise and fall of the rate in between is do to the recession peaking and the slow recovery from it.
2. statistically, the worse setback to african american employment occurred before he took office.
3. the labor participation rate has no direct correlation to african american unemployment and any assertions drawn from it in regards to that point cannot be proven.
if you disagree with any of this, please see the charts provide by the bureau of labor and statistics.
