According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate as of August 2014 for white Americans is down to 5.3%. The unemployment rate for black Americans is more than doubled the figure for whites at 12.0%. The unemployment rate for white teens 16 to 19 years of age is 17.0% and the rate for black teens 16 to 19 years of age is nearly doubled at 32.9%.
Black Americans have been after Barack Obama to keep his promise of creating more job opportunities for them. Like all of the other promises Obama made, the promise for more jobs for blacks has been broken and cast away.
Just look at Obama’s policies in the energy field. He’s launched a war against the coal and oil industries where a substantial number of blacks are employed. Obama has thrown billions of taxpayer dollars to green energy development, a field that has fewer blacks than in the fossil fuel industry. I’m not trying to be racist or discriminatory, but just stating the obvious.
Now, Obama is about to make finding jobs even harder for blacks, especially black teens by granting amnesty to millions of Central and South American illegal aliens. By granting them the right to remain in the US, they will be able to legally get jobs instead of being paid under the table. Many of the illegals are unskilled which means that they will be seeking employment in many of the fields where teens work such as fast food, restaurants, warehouse and other minimum wage jobs.
Once these illegals begin to flood the job market, expect the unemployment rate to go up, especially for white and black teens. It will make it harder for American teens to find jobs to help pay for their schooling.
In addition to the economic downside of granting amnesty to the illegals I believe crime rates will increase, especially in inner city areas where jobs are even harder to come by. With more young people not being able to find work because of the influx of illegals, it means they will have more idle time on their hands. Traditionally, this means that more of them will turn to some kind of crime or violence to pass the time and as a means to getting money to live on.
Yet, the black community still seems to be blindly following Obama like a school of lemmings who will follow their leader right over a cliff to certain destruction. They fail to see what Obama’s immigration policies are doing to them. They continue to sing his praises while he just makes life harder and harder on them. If only they would wake up and smell the treachery of their black messiah who is really the devil in disguise.
