Democrats and the media are constantly trying to convince the minorities especially the black community that President Trump is a racist who supports the white supremacists and wants to marginalize the blacks.
This is not even close to the true reality, and there is one black civil rights activists group that has pointed out what President Trump has done so far in the office.
Project 21 is a conservative black leadership group, which endorses individual responsibility and entrepreneurship, and they approve of Trump’s “common sense” economic policies, especially that those policies have a positive effect on the black unemployment.
“Commonsense measures to reduce regulation are a major step in improving American economic conditions,” former Congressional leadership aide and Project 21 co-chair Horace Cooper said. “Once Congress steps up to reduce taxes and repeal Obamacare, the markets and the economy will skyrocket — taking such good fortunes to black America and the rest of the nation.”
According to the Labor Department, the black unemployment rate for September declined to 7.0%, which last year was 8.3% in September.
“With the black unemployment rate falling to its lowest point since April 2000, and considering the persistently high levels of double-digit employment that existed during most of the previous administration, this news should really be garnering more attention,” Dr. Derryck Green, a group member, said.
“This should be a source of economic optimism because the job market is expanding and improving overall — particularly among American blacks who were hit hard during the sluggish, so-called economic ‘recovery’ touted by our previous president,” Green continued. “It bears remembering that the black unemployment rate at that point had skyrocketed. It was at or near 15 percent on nine occasions, and near or above 16 percent 24 other times.”
“While still too high for my liking at seven percent, the black unemployment rate has significantly improved since the days of double digits,” added Green. “Though there’s still work to do to increase employment opportunities among American blacks, this is indeed cause for celebration.”
Also, another huge drop in the unemployment rate that wasn’t reported by the liberal media is the teenagers’ unemployment rate which dropped from 28.1% in Sept. 2016 to 23.0 this year.
“With the holiday season upon us, news that thCe unemployment rate for blacks has reached a 17-year low — even as the economy shed 33,000 jobs due to the hurricanes — should be trumpeted in the media,” said Project 21 co-chair Stacy Washington. “Good economic policy that prioritizes Americans over foreign workers, fewer illegal border crossings and an overall positive business outlook has had a positive impact on hiring.”
“Among the first casualties of poor economic decisions are the middle class and minority groups,” said Rich Holt, a group member, and political consultant. “It’s my hope that a reasonable tax policy and pro-business economic decisions from the Trump Administration will help this rebound happen even more quickly.”
This news is amazing for both our nation and the black community. So next time when someone says President Trump wasn’t to marginalize the blacks they should get their facts straight.
