More Of That Trump Racism

Unemployment among blacks – after reaching very  persistent and long-lasting highs during the Obama regime – has dropped to a record low:

Black unemployment fell to 6.8 percent in December, the lowest ever recorded by the U.S. Labor Department since it began tracking the black unemployment rate in 1972.

Economists say it’s a sign the recovery from the Great Recession is finally starting to help a wider swath of the U.S. population.

During the aftermath of the financial crisis, black unemployment soared to 16.8 percent in 2010, meaning more than 1 out of every 6 African Americans was looking for a job but could not find one. The rate has steadily declined since, breaking the prior all-time low of 7 percent that was set in 2000 during the dot-com boom.

The writer – and, by extension, the WaPo – does their level best to ensure the impact is softened with lots of anti-Trump factoids.  It’s the WaPo, after all.   Trump’s popularity among African-Americans remains microscopic.

Although I have to wonder; would a black American be any more likely to admit being a Trump fan than a Minneapolitan be to admit they owned a gun?

  1. Of course the Post lards the article with anti-Trump fictionoids. If they don’t, blacks will start figuring out that the left is not actually on their side and start voting accordingly–and in that case, the Democrats will be done.
