67. Unemployment rate falls to lowest since March 2009
Nice forum.  As an African American, I'm not too excited about
the latest unemployment figure, considering that unemployment
for African Americans is hovering around 16%.  The black youth
of this city (Washington DC) are suffering; I know because I
have teenage relatives and friends with teenagers who are
roaming the streets (getting into trouble) because they don't
have a job.  8.6 is misleading and I hope the president
doesn't get so excited to the point that he loses sight of
this catastrophic problem that is affecting the black
community across this country more than any other group.
