The fact that Hillary is utilizing women's rights as a foundation for her political campaign is very concerning. As electing the first African American was one of Obama's major attractions to capture the Black vote, and Hillary is trying to entice women by electing the First Woman POTUS, I can only hope and pray that if she is elected it will work out better for the Nation's women than it has for the Nation's Black's who wasted their votes for Obama.
Under Obama, Blacks Are Worse Off -- Far Worse
All stats below refer to the American American Communities
Poverty Levels INCREASED form 25.8% to 27.2%
Income Levels = median income fell 9 percent between, compared to a drop of only 1 percent for whites.
Net Worth: blacks' net worth fell from $16,600 to $11,000. This is an astonishing drop of 34 percent. The black/white "wealth-gap" has reached a 25-year high.
Unemployment: In 2009, black unemployment was 12.7 percent, and by 2014, it had fallen to 10.1 percent. This sounds like good news until one examines the black labor force participation rate -- the percentage of blacks working or seeking work. It's the lowest since these numbers have been recorded. The drop in labor force participation was sharpest for African Americans, who saw a decline of 0.3 percentage points to 60.2 percent, the lowest rate since December of 1977.
Home Ownership: have fallen six percentage points among black households -- double that among white households
I just believe our Nation's mothers, daughters, and sisters deserve much more than empty promises...
