“In response to news that the overall unemployment rate had dropped to 8.3 percent and the unemployment rate in the black community declined from 15.8 percent to 13.6 percent, West floated the possibility that the numbers might have been cooked.
‘Can someone tell me how employment in the black community has improved at a rate three times the national average in just a few months?? With numbers like today, urban communities should be well on their way to economic recovery then! There is something suspicious about the job numbers released today and it has me very concerned,’ West wondered Friday. ‘Is this dramatic supposed decrease in black unemployment a result of job creation or is someone playing around with the census numbers??’
…William Darity, a professor of public policy at Duke University specializing in African-American studies and economics, wrote in an email to The Hill that the decline could have been due to a smaller labor force. He called the drop an ‘unbelievably dramatic drop’ but didn’t rule out the possibility of someone tampering with the numbers…”
At this rate, next month’s report will reveal that everyone in the Black community has a full-time job. Damn straight, someone is cooking the books.
Remember America, just because Progressives say it, do not make it so. Bear in mind that Obama has been cooking the books since he walked into the White House.
