19. Here you go

I don't know the white college graduate rate as of today's report, but it is always somewhere below the total average for each demographic. Whatever the number is today, it is below 4.1%.


At the end of 2010, African Americans 25 years old and older with a college education had an unemployment rate of 7.3 percent, while the rate for white college graduates was 4.2 percent, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Other minority groups, such as Asian college graduates and Hispanics, hover a shade over 5.5 percent

the unemployment rate of African American college graduates was 6.9 percent, while the unemployment rate among white college graduates was a mere 3.9 percent.
