Liberals Made Black Poverty Worse
From Time Magazine
"According to a new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, more than one in five American children, about 22%, were living in poverty in 2013. Data for 2014 are not yet available, but the report anticipates that the child poverty rate remains at an “unacceptably high level.”
The figure for 2008 was 18%.
African-American, American Indian and Latino children continued to experience negative outcomes at rates that were higher than the national average. Overall unemployment rates have fallen, but the unemployment rate for African-Americans is currently 11 percent — 2.4 percentage points higher than where it was prior to the economic crisis.
Nearly 40 percent of African-American children live in poverty, compared to 14 percent of white children."
The Democrats have ruled since 2009. With the first black president, Barack Obama, the Democrats have ruled for eight straight years, and has paid little or no attention to the economy, instead concentrating mainly on failed foreign policies, a bloated costly health care program for the poor, and things like gay marriage, the War on Whites, the War on Wealth, and the War on Women. And increasing dependency on government poverty programs. Obama and his liberal cronies get, and deserve, all the blame for 40% of African-American children living in poverty in America.
And blacks overwhelmingly voted for Obama for President, twice, mainly because he is black. 95% of black voters voted for Obama in 2008, 93% in 2012. I guess they thought having a black President was a good idea; I guess they thought he would help them economically, because he's black. I guess they were wrong. Under Obama and his liberal followers, black children in America are worse off than before.
Why do African Americans keep voting for the Democrats, for liberals, if black lives keep getting worse? The definition of insanity is: doing something that doesn't work over and over again and expecting a different result.
