Black Unemployment is High..AND? What's New?
Open Letter to Obama: Black Unemployment Must Be Addressed -Dr. Boyce Watkins
What did we expect? Black unemployment has many layers. Our condition has been rough for decades. The election of a black president was not going to change that. I am trying to figure out what type of plan the president can put into motion to get blacks employed. Is he suppose to say, 'Okay folk, these jobs are for blacks only.' How should this work? I am convinced if scholars, economist, and other experts cannot get jobs to fall from the sky they will not for the president. Blacks are last on the list to get hired anyway! If I owned a business I would be loyal to MY PEOPLE. What makes us think that the white business owner is not being loyal to HIS PEOPLE? We need our own...and stop asking the government for this and that. How about more black millionaires invest in black employment? Just a thought...
