The Youth Unemployment Crisis Hits African-Americans Hardest

Young people are being chased out of the labor market. Though the national unemployment rate has fallen steadily in recent months, youth unemployment remains stubbornly high, and the jobless rate is even higher among young minorities. For young people between the ages of 16 and 24, unemployment is more than twice the national rate, at 14.2 percent. For African-Americans, that rate jumps to 21.4 percent. Of course, discrimination could be a factor. But according to William...

Tattoos hold recruits back from military careers

If Democrats Hold on to US Senate in November, It Will Be Because of Black Voters

If the Democrats hold on to control of the U.S. Senate in November, it will largely be because of the support of African-American voters, according to a vitally important analysis by the New York Times. The article by writer Nate Cohn says that African-American voters in the South could play the most important role they’ve played in a national election since Reconstruction. “If Democrats win this November, Black voters will probably represent a larger share of the...
