If you spend any amount of time listening to the Democrats you’d swear that President Trump is nothing but a Russia-colluding racist Hell bent on destroying the lives of every single Black, and Hispanic, person in America. Now if that were in fact true, then we’d have to agree that President Trump is failing, and pretty miserably so, on all fronts since it can now be said that he is the architect of what is the best economy in recent history to the benefit of ALL people both white and non-white!
I can say that because we recently got news that the unemployment rate for blacks and now fallen to the lowest level ever recorded, in August, dropping from 6 percent to 5.5 percent. As a result, the persistent gap between white and black unemployment also narrowed to its smallest on record. But wait, how can this be? Why would someone who is as racist as Democrats claim him to be, be the least bit interested in doing anything that would improve the lives of blacks in any way?
And it’s under the heading of ‘sad but true’ is how for decades the unemployment ratio between blacks and whites has averaged roughly 2 to 1, meaning that the black unemployment rate is typically twice that of whites. In good times, the unemployment rate of both blacks and whites falls but the gap always remains. And in bad times, the unemployment rate for whites and blacks rises, but black unemployment typically remains around twice that of white employment.
It was a year ago that the black unemployment stood at 6.6 percent while white unemployment rate was 3.4 percent, meaning that black unemployment was 185 percent that of white unemployment. In August, that gap narrowed to the point where black unemployment was under 162 percent of white unemployment. That is the smallest gap ever in records going back to January 1972. This is all the more remarkable because it comes at a time of remarkably low unemployment.
Prior to the era of Donald Trump, the last time the gap fell below 170 percent was in August of 2009, when the black unemployment rate stood at 14.8 percent and the white unemployment rate was 8.9 percent. Then the gap declined because white unemployment was increasing at a much faster rate than was the already sky-high black unemployment. To be honest, black employment is seen as racist to a Democrat, after all, we can’t have all these people working and being self-sufficient.
In other words, the decline in employment inequality now is undeniably the best on record because it comes in the context of falling unemployment. Now try to imagine just how low black unemployment would go if Democrats were ever to assist President Trump in stopping the flood of illegal immigrants into this country. Hopefully more blacks will begin to take note and finally begin leaving the Democrat plantation as the Democrats seem quite satisfied to simply replace them with those here illegally.
And also, let’s not forget that it’s not only black unemployment that’s hitting a record low, but also Hispanic unemployment has tied the previous low from earlier this year. Things are going well despite the Democrats’ being more consumed than ever with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) driven by their pure hatred of the man. They don’t want to give President Trump any kind of a win. They have been obstructing him since day one. Every position he takes, they take the opposite one.
Once upon a time it was Barry ‘O’ who had argued that the anemic performance of the economy during his tenure was to be “the new normal.” Barry also said that the jobs lost were jobs lost forever, and never coming back unless, of course, Trump was to come into possession of a magic wand. President Trump’s impressive list of accomplishments have not only added jobs but also increased consumer confidence to a rather astounding level. Black and Hispanic unemployment is an all-time low.
And yet, oddly enough, it’s the ‘leadership’ of the black community that continues to tell blacks to flock to the Democrats, who will keep them on welfare and perpetuate their victim status while they take their votes for granted. President Trump has been a huge boon to blacks, but it’s unlikely they’ll credit him for that. This despite the ‘fact’ the Democrat Party is the party of slavery, is the party that imposed segregation, and also fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.
And it was after all of their efforts to enslave blacks, keep them enslaved, and to prevent them from voting had all failed, that the Democrats came up with an entirely new strategy: If blacks were going to vote then, by golly, they might as well be voting for Democrats. And as President Johnson, Democrat, was quoted as having said about the Civil Rights Act, “I’ll have them n*****s voting Democrat for two hundred years.” And he seems to have been right, at least up to this point. Which is truly kind of sad.
It’s painfully obvious, or at least it should be, that Democrats have long seen blacks as being little more than cattle to be herded in the right direction, and have done absolutely nothing for them as far as bettering their lives. And I’m sure that if blacks were going to “get it” they would’ve gotten it by now. It’s not like they’re suddenly going to wake up one day and say, “wait a minute, these Democrats have done nothing for me or my community, in fact their policies have made my life worse.”
It has been said that a rising tide lifts all boats; except, of course, when the Democrats are busy drilling holes in the bottom of black folks’ boats, sinking their hopes to flee those blighted ghettos where Democrats plunder their desperation for continued power. The Democrats have raised to an art form the ruining the economic and cultural value of the family, made easier the importing of drugs, encouraged substandard schools and all the while blaming it all on their opposition.
And yet blacks continue to vote, and in overwhelming numbers, for Democrats, the party that all but destroyed the black family and has orchestrated what has been a veritable black genocide with their murderous abortion policies. And then blacks wonder why all other races think blacks are not rational, even ignoring their propensity for criminal and violent behavior. Personally, I’m sick of hearing blacks’ endless whining and complaints when virtually all of their problems are self-inflicted.
President Trump once asked blacks what they had to lose by voting for him. And while the answer to that question is so obvious, most blacks have refused to even consider doing such a thing, instead falling for the idiotic drivel they are spoon fed by both members of the Democrat Party and those they continue to recognize as leaders within their community. Which does cause one to wonder if they truly are satisfied with the crumbs that they continue to receive from the Democrats.
