1. African Americans are 12 percent to 13 percent of the U.S. population but hold 18 percent of all


federal jobs, for example:

25 percent of the employees at Treasury and Veterans Affairs,
31 percent of State Department employees,
37 percent of the Department of Education,
38 percent of Housing and Urban Development,
42 percent of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.,
55 percent of the Government Printing Office, and
82 percent of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency.

Agree with the OP that cuts in government will probably have a disproportionate impact on the African-American community.
