America is a progressive nation. It has always rose above the bigotry and hatred. That is what makes this country so great. This too shall pass. History will reflect on these years and paint those who actively pushed to legislate their hate and bigotry and those who rose and stood above it.

Unfortunately, black unemployment actually increased from 13.6 percent to 14.1 percent. This is distressing, for obvious reasons, and to see the positive momentum that occurred last month come to a halt, while the rest of the economy continued to tread water at worst, speaks to the fragile state of the recovery in the black community.

That being said, part of the rise in the black unemployment rate, as with the broader economy, is due to an increase in the participation rate in the black community. In fact, when analyzing another key indicator, the employment-population ratio, the percentage of working age people who were working was essentially flat.

This context is not meant to excuse the fact that black communities still experience extremely high levels of unemployment, especially in specifically distressed areas of the country, nor that the gap between black unemployment and the rest of the country is not closing fast enough.

In fact, there remain some ominous signs when looking beneath the headline numbers. Most alarmingly, unemployment increased substantially for black males in February to 14.3 percent, up from 12.7 percent in January -- this despite the fact that the participation rate and employment-population ratio both decreased.

That is to say, the black male unemployment is climbing, even as the percentage of working-age black males who are actively looking for work is falling. That should raise a lot of eyebrows in our communities, as well as in Washington.


WHAT IS OBAMA'S ANSWER?

It has been well-known that black male unemployment has been consistently elevated, and significantly higher than the unemployment rate of black females (which decreased from 12.6 percent to 12.4 percent in February). A recently released University of Wisconsin study provided the sobering fact that black participation rates have fallen precipitously in almost all of the major metropolitan areas in the US.

This could be due to a range of factors, including issues that affect all males in our current economy. For instance, industries that have been traditionally male-dominated, like construction and manufacturing, have been hit far harder than other industries that have traditionally employed more women, such as nursing. Specific to the black community, education outcomes for black males certainly contribute to the disparity, as well as complications related to finding employment with a criminal record.




SO WHAT IS OBAMA'S ANSWER?

Pimp GAY MARRIAGE!!!!

How does this decision by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People...advance Colored people?This decision is not about the betterment of average black people.Its about political correctness and the NAACP has decided to ignor the opinions of the vast majority of African-Americans.

This is not surprising, the NAACP has always been on the far out fringe, and is a very racist organization.

Also, a whole lot of male blacks are fruits.

I agree - there is also hope in the young generation who believes in inclusivity not hate, intelligence not hate, equality and not hate.

The pedophiles are already forming a line in D.C. to demand their civil rights.Shows just how immoral this country has become,and that blacks are like sheep and will blindly follow whatever obama or the naacp calls them to do,no matter how wrong it is.I don't hate any of them,I pity them. One day they will all have to account for their lives before God,myself included.
