    As African-American unemployment remains at over 15 percent, the Black community questions whether placing hopes on Obama was a mistake.
    While the US marks Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the African-American community is knee-deep in an economic nightmare.

    “There is no question that black America is worse off than it has been in at least the last 30 years,” said Glen Ford, the executive editor of the Black Agenda Report.

    The official unemployment rate for African-Americans has been hovering at around 16 percent for the last year.

    “Number one in high unemployment, number one in home foreclosures and number one in populating the prisons of our country,” explained renowned civil rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson.

    Many say, if these numbers represented any other minority group, the US would be in a state of emergency.

    Since the flood of illegals into the US has made looking after the third world so popular among the religious and charitable of America's "conscience", they forgot that poor black are Americans and should be among those that get fed first. But since black Americans have no real organizations to speak for them much like poor white Americans, they take a back seat for the aid that gets distributed around the country.

    Maybe learning to fire that Glock isn't such a bad idea. The time will come when all poor Americans will unite to take on LA RAZA. Maybe 2011?

    European Americans are suffering too.
    But it is not entirerly Obamas fault.
    He did not cause this, but he has also not taken some of the steps needed to improve things.
    Because apparently he is a third Bush term.

    Maybe they need to stop breaking the law. ;)

    Um, NAACP is not an organization for poor Black Americans??

    Now, I agree on the poor White Americans, they do not have any real organizations to help them out.

    There was a time in America when every African was fully employed.

    Excuse me? African Americans have worked their asses off cleaning toilets, and doing the kinds of jobs you think you are TOO GOOD TO DO because your skin color is lighter. Don't try and bring that BS up about Black people don't want to work. Who cooks in the White Hoiuse and cleans their toilets? Black folks have been doing it for many years. Why can't your uppity White ass do it?

    LOL, I never said a thing about Blacks not wanting to work, that is your assumption. My commint was about those who break the law. And by the way, I never had any Blacks do my work for me or cook for me, nor did any of my ancestors, so get off your soap box. Just because I have white skin don't mean anything. Oh, except that some Blacks will judge me for things I had no part in.
