    Today they did a report on how the unemployment number is a lot higher for African Americans. So I'm trying to figure out the purpose of this report? I thought that all races were being affected by this shaky economy?

    Maybe because black unemployment is so much greater then any other race, just like crime, std's, dropouts........

    Is this another Soros Media Matters scoop? What a lame post.

    It would be interesting to know how many hard-core Obama supporters are currently unemployed and still think he's the greatest thing since barley pop was invented.

    The only charts I've seen on the Fox shows I've watched showed percentages for whites, blacks and Hispanics.
