Black unemployment surged to 16.7% in August, its highest level since 1984, the Labor Department reported. Black unemployment has now remained above 10% for four straight years. And the rate sits at an astounding 42% for the black teen population. If a Republican President did the sort of damage to black Americans that Barack Obama has, it would be called a hate crime.

Rep. Allen West has been one of President Obama's most persistent critics throughout America's sluggish economic recovery. Yesterday, the Florida congressman highlighted ongoing minority unemployment.

As a Member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the House Small Business Committee, I am seriously concerned with the 13 percent unemployment number for Black Americans. The failed economic policies of President Obama are destroying the black community and lessening the chances for economic freedom while promoting economic dependence. Perhaps this is what the NAACP was afraid to hear me address.

Congressman West might have been spurred by polls...
