It is puzzling that so many minorities voted for Barack Obama over Mitt Romney considering how disproportionately they have suffered economically during Obama's presidency. Black unemployment under Obama increased at a higher pace than whites, from 12.7% to 14.1%, ending at almost twice the unemployment rate of whites. Now, one out of every seven blacks is unemployed. White unemployment barely increased under Obama, from 7.1% to 7.4%.
In response to:
Romney promised jobs as the path to prosperity. Parasites don't WANT jobs. They want free stuff and don't care where it comes from. Katrina was proof of that--the fat woman (black) who threw her MRE on the ground because she wanted a HOT meal; the fat woman (also black) who wasn't moving unless someone came to her home, packed her stuff and carried it AND HER to another location. Dependency means being treated like a child. Nanny state is aptly named. Nanny COUNTRY is coming to a neighborhood near you. Doing for those who claim poverty or need doesn't teach them ANYTHING about self-reliance. Progs wouldn't want that.
