Why our Country is Going Down The Drain


African-Americans aged 18-34 have the lowest employment rate (54%) since the government started tracking in 1948.  African-American youth unemployment is 39.3% (ages 16-19) and is nearly double the 20.9% unemployment rate for whites in the same age demographic.  Total African-American unemployment is 14.1%, while overall national unemployment now stands at 8.1%.  Two point five million African-Americans are currently looking for work but can’t find a job.  African-Americans make up a disproportionately large share of the unemployed and long-term unemployed.  They account for roughly 19 percent of the total unemployed population, 23 percent of those unemployed for more than six months, and 26 percent of those unemployed for 99 or more weeks.  The typical unemployment spell lasts roughly seven months (28.4 weeks) for an African-American worker, compared to less than five months (19.2 weeks) for all workers.  African-Americans are more likely to be unemployed than the overall population across all levels of educational attainment.  While the unemployment rate for African-Americans without a high school diploma was 21.7 percent last month, the overall unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma was 15.0 percent.  Likewise, 6.6 percent of African-Americans with at least a bachelor’s degree were unemployed, 50 percent higher than the overall unemployment rate for those with a 4-year college degree. The median income of African-American households was $32,068, a decline of 3.2 percent from 2009.  The last decade has seen a significant erosion of income for African-American households; from 2000 to 2010, real median household income declined by 14.6 percent. Since 2007, African-American median household income has declined by 10.1 percent-the largest decline of all major racial and ethnic groups. In 2010, the poverty rate among African-Americans was 27.4 percent, up from 25.8 percent in 2009 and up from 24.5 percent at the start of the 2007-2009 recessions. 10.7 million African-Americans lived in poverty in 2010, including 4.4 million children.  Many of those in poverty were living in female-headed households.  The poverty rate among African-Americans living in families headed by women was 41.0 percent in 2010.  Thirty-nine point one percent of African-American children less than 18 years old live in poverty.  In 2011, the poverty rate among African-Americans was 27.5 percent, as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau using the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM), which uses a wider range of factors than the official federal measure to determine poverty status.


We are experiencing a 28-year high in black unemployment; but unlike January 1983, when black unemployment spiked but then soon improved, Barack Obama’s black unemployment has hovered in the 14%-16% range for over three years… Teen black unemployment is at a terrible 39.3%.  The number of children living under the poverty line is as high as it has ever been… black illegitimate births have peaked at 72.5% of all black births, and sexually transmitted diseases are up — particularly for black kids, for whom chlamydia occurs 3.8 times more than for Hispanics and 7.5 times more than for whites. New York now aborts of 60% of its black babies…

[ASND would like to ask readers, “Who, again, was president in 1983?”]


Runaway Slave:

Beginning with its Jan. 13 Hollywood premiere, a black pastor and civil rights leader is introducing nationally his provocative film, ‘Runaway Slave,’ which documents how government programs enslave his community.


They’ve been deceived that race is their issue.  But that’s really not it.  It’s the breakup of the home. There is none so blind as who will not see.  If you choose to keep the blinders on, it’s your fault.


… when enlightened social scientists, like Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY), suggested that inept entitlement programs  create and sustain generational dependencies, such arguments are often dismissed as racism…  The NY Times and like-minded [liberal] social theorists ignore the key sources of social motivation — and then fail to reform those government programs, such as intemperate welfare and impotent [ governmenteducation , which actually make social and economic poverty possible.


… black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion…    On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States….  without abortion, America’s Black community…  would be 36 percent larger than it is.  Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.


Most of the people [Keith Olberman] brands as conservatives’ were actually Democrats.

During the Reconstruction era, Republicans ran on a platform which said ‘now is the Negro’s hour,’ while the Democrats’ platform was ‘this is a white man’s country.’

It was Democratic President Woodrow Wilson who, as noted above, institutionalized Jim Crow at the federal level…

… higher percentages of Congressional Republicans voted for passage of the Voting Rights Act than did Democrats.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, like his father and most African Americans of his time, was a Republican.”

African Americans, using the weapons of the Christian gospel of universal equality, non-violence and ceaseless, unremitting litigation in the courts fought, marched, suffered and, sometimes, died to set themselves free.  They — not white liberals — own that freedom, because they and their parents — not white liberals — took it.


… affirmative action applied to a competitive NBA team would see seven-foot African-Americans deprivileged in favor of short white men who couldn’t swish the basket if their lives depended on it.


The Left’s Callous Disinterest in Black Shooting Victims


Let any challenger to your right to profile know that you have profiled them as an ignorant, racist, meddling Liberal, and that you stand firmly by that profile.”

[Mr. Jackson, for those who don’t know, is black American hero.]


In what universe would th[e] era of Democratic Party rule [in the post-civil war South, through the 1970s] be consider more ‘liberal’… than the Democrats of 1945 or 1975?


Blacks Enslaving Themselves


… the lack of live-in fathers also is overwhelmingly a black problem, regardless of poverty status…
