Yep, but that's certainly not specific to only blacks.

Stevelyn - that's a pretty "cleaned-up" version of what LBJ said. If you actually quoted what HE said, YOU'D be screamed at for being a racist bigoted hater who hates. As a previous poster inferred: If you are black and vote for blacks on the basis of blackness, you're a freakin' moron who deserves to be mired in economic slavery.

If only murdering folks in C town was considered a job......

That's ok. The dumbmocrats are done with black folks anyway. They are moving to the cash cow, illegal Meskins as voters. Now before you drop the race card on me, I be one just a legal one.

From the report:
Quote:
Black workers are under-represented in the labor force, making up 12.3 percent of the population 16 and older in 2012, but only 11.9 percent of the labor force.
So blacks are not even TRYING to find work at the same rate as other groups...

Careful with your cause and effect. You could just as easily say that they aren't being HIRED at the same rate as other groups, but without correlation, it doesn't make it true.

I think you have misunderstood...everybody. I don't see anybody crying about it - I see people saying "here's the reason for it and it's the fault of black people, liberals and "black community leaders" like BO.

the people posting on the thread didn't write the article or decide it was time to print it.

If they could think independently and starting looking at themselves as people and not BLACK people, maybe they could be successful and pull themselves out of their rut.
Some of us are doing quite decent. Thanks for asking.

I still don't.

I'm only concerned about the unemployment rate as a whole. I couldn't care less how one ethnicity is doing. If the unemployment rate as a whole is good, then those who want to work are working anyway, regardless of race.

Well the current administration is making leaps and bounds towards achieving racial equality in this area, because, pretty soon unemployment for non-minorities will catch up with unemployment for minorities.

And we have a winner!

It is in that very statement we can ascertain the true goal of the Obama administration.

Meanwhile, for those interested, here are a couple of factors which need contemplation:
1) How well do black children do in school?
2) How well are black families structured?
3) How many black kids have responsible, working adults within the families to use as role models?
4) What are the incentives for black kids to work hard and excel?

And, finally, what is the overall black communities' views on authority?

The "workforce" includes those who are actively looking for a job.

To say that a stereotype doesn't apply to all, doesn't invalidate the stereotype. We all know that no stereotype applies to every individual, it is just a generalization based on observations of a trait that is significantly common to a group.

If some of you would reasearch the patents held by black individuals some of your eyes would probably pop out of your heads for items that you use everyday. I know several blacks and one in particular with seven hundred grand in the bank and no it is not related to illegal drugs but it is related to working hard and saving and investing wisely. Some of these blacks I am referring to shop at Wal-Mart and you probably stand in line with them when and if you shop there so keep on making your assumptions and I can imagine some of them laugh when people assume they are on public assistance and asking for a hand out as some of the media and you suggest.
