The unemployment rate for black Americans is more than double that of white Americans, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)

For June 2014, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for black Americans age 16 and over was 10.7%, reported the BLS. The unemployment rate for white Americans in the same age group and time-frame was 5.3%, said the BLS.

Well, it's certainly not because of racism they have a high unemployment rate. ALL the colleges, universities, corporations, big and small, are tripping over themselves to recruit/hire blacks. If anything, it's White Americans being discriminated against in favor of blacks [and other minorities].

I know the economy is not very good these days, but even when the economy is good, even when the economy is excellent, the blacks still have some really severe issues with work.

Maybe all the blacks should go to Hollywood and do TV commercials and TV shows and movies. They're in every TV commercial, TV show, movie. So the black employment rate in Hollywood is very high. Just as high, if not higher, than the White employment rate in Hollywood.

Also, NASA is yearning to turn NASA totally black. The blacks should apply for jobs at NASA. Then we could have colonies throughout the Universe. Ad Astra!
