Black unemployment rose sharply in January, as Trump bragged about record lows

Trump's State Of The Union Bet: Woo Black Americans

The black joblessness rate now stands at 7.7 percent.

Coal workers also supported Trump because he made them believe that he was going to save their jobs. At one point, he reiterated his disgust for NFL players' national anthem protests against systemic racism by praising a 12-year-old white boy's act of patriotism.

In Trump's first year in office, he presided over a 1% decline in the black unemployment rate, which is really just the continuation of a 1% per-year decline that started under President Obama.

"President Trump's racist rhetoric makes the country less safe for people of color by encouraging, emboldening and pandering to those who wish to do harm to others based on the color of their skin", Richmond said.

The was even more pronounced in each of the three years before that: The rate fell by 1.9 per cent in 2015, 1.5 per cent in 2014 and 1.8 per cent in 2013.

He continued, "Presidents take credit for good economies". He declared that the GOP tax plan, which went into effect last month, was to thank for the overall unemployment rate being at 4.1%, average earnings being up by 2.9% since last January, and 200,000 new jobs having been created last month.

Much of the racial wealth disparity in this country can be attributed to home ownership, which accounts for two-thirds of the wealth of most US households, according to the Economic Policy Institute.

"You replace "immigrant" with 'Black person, ' and you're talking 1950s rhetoric", Perry said. Per the New York Times, "The modern roots of the racial wealth gap can be traced back to the post-World War II housing boom, when federal agencies blocked loans to black Americans, locking them out of the greatest wealth accumulation this country has ever experienced". To kickoff Black History Month last February, he clumsily referenced 19th-century abolitionist Frederick Douglass as if he were still alive. He told BuzzFeed News the State of the Union is an opportunity for Trump to engage the black community and pitch policy that the Democrats have promised to deliver election after election with no results. To this question, Jay-Z answered a very clear "No" by pointing out that what matters most to people isn't money but rather happiness, meaning that money is a lesser concern in the sense that it is one of the factors that contribute to happiness.

In other words, it could be a true test of whether broader economic success can overcome a very deep cultural aversion.

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump may have found his 100th problem. "I think the country would be better for it".
