Black Unemployment Double That of Whites

Unemployment is always one of the top political issues in the United States. We often hear about the unemployment numbers going up or down, but when we look at unemployment numbers broken down into different demographics, the numbers tell us an entirely different story.

The Black unemployment rate is twice that of whites.

In a report written by Drew Desliver of Pew Research Center, this disparity has been a consistent trend for decades.

Latino unemployment rates come up somewhere in between according to data from the U.S. Department of Labor.
