1. Just curious -- is the red 6.8 from 2018 or 2019?

There's also a graph of it at the above link -- by default from 1/2009 (Obama's inaugural month) thru 10/2019. One can adjust the dates if one wishes (all the way back to 1972). But anyway it shows a clear continuation of the Obama trend -- the decline hasn't sped up or anything like that.

2. Clearly trump is full of it with this, but he is probably right when he

says Black unemployment is at, or near, record lows.

Most people recognize he wouldn’t have taken any special steps to help Obama’s trend along. He deserves no credit.

4. the racism in the message... that black people have jobs because someone gave them/allowed them

do whites owe their jobs to Trump or Obama?
