While the end of the COVID lockdowns has spurred significant job gains, black Americans have been left behind in the recovery.
“According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Black unemployment rose from 6.5% to 7.1% while that of other groups (Hispanic, White, Asian) fell,” reports Fox Business . “Overall, the U.S.’s unemployment rate fell to 3.9% from 4.2% with what’s being described as a ‘disappointing’ added jobs figure of 199,000.”
While most demographics have seen consistent drops in unemployment with the easing of COVID restrictions, black unemployment has not. “Starting with the highest rate of unemployment across all groups with 9.8% in February 2021, Black unemployment saw drops and rises several times – most notably a dip in July that saw the rate drop 1% to 8.2% before rising to 8.7% in August while other groups all saw a drop again.”

PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
