    African-American Middle Class Eroding As Unemployment Rate Soars


    The unemployment situation across America is bad, no doubt. But for African-Americans in some cities, this is not the great recession. It’s the Great Depression.

    Take Charlotte, N.C., for example. It is a jewel of the “new South.” The largest financial center outside of New York City, it's the showcase for next year’s Democratic National Convention. It was a land of hope and opportunity for many blacks with a four-year college degree or higher.


    According to an analysis by the Economic Policy Institute, in Charlotte, N.C., the unemployment rate for African-Americans is 19.2 percent. If you add in people who have given up looking for jobs, that number exceeds 20 percent, which, according to economists Algernon Austin and William Darity, has effectively mired blacks in a depression.

    The middle class has been 'eroding' since Reagan, republican policies are the reason, that along with big money corporate power and outsourcing for profit only. Soon if republicans continue to fool buffoons like the posters above, we will be a third world nation. In terms of the distribution of wealth we are already there.

    We have an entire university system here that exists solely for the purpose of ensuring blacks can graduate form HS with the education level of a third-grader and still get into college. And who is it's iggest supporters? Yup, LIBERALS.

    The black Middle Class eroded mostly because of the housing bubble, not "Obama's" policies, policies which none of the retards here can point to and identify as the cause, they look at Obama say since he's president he must have been his fault, fallacious reasoning.

    Question

    Is there even a Black Conservative in the Democratic Party?
