The Disturbing Trend In Unemployment

While prepping an article about an urban retailer "highly dependent on African Americans," I came across the unemployment rate difference between whites and blacks.

The result: 5.7% unemployment amongst whites versus 12.1% unemployment amongst blacks.

Even worse, only 60.5% of blacks are participating in the workforce compared to 63.5% of whites. This is a major issue that must be addressed.
