Orange: The New Black

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released unemployment numbers this week, and if you are a member of the African-American community, you will be very pleased.

Unemployment among black Americans ages 16 years and over fell to 7.5 percent in May, its lowest level since December 2000.

Black unemployment has been on the decline since February — falling from (February) 8.1, (March) 8.0, (April) 7.9, and (May) 7.5 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national unemployment rate in May was 4.3 percent, its lowest level since May 2001.

Donald Trump hates black people! Or something.

The reason I used Breitbart as the post source is because while checking teh interwebz yesterday, there was no mention of the unemployment numbers on the websites of the three major networks, nor at CNN’s site. That may have changed, since I wrote this yesterday, but if a Democrat was in the White House it would be front page news.

  1. You probably won’t hear anything from them until they can come up with some negative scenario to account for this because we all know Trump never does anything good. He and the GOP are evil to their core. I also got a chuckle out of the report on raising the minimum wage and how it actually hurt people and the economy if it goes above $11/an hour. One point for democracy and free markets.

  2. Don’t have to be a member of the African-American community to be pleased by those numbers, but I know what you mean!
    Trump has done way more for the black community in America in six months than Obama did in eight years.
