I found the ethnicity unemployment rates rather interesting:
Black teens have a 41% unemployment rate, then you have white teens at 25%, black men at 17%, All Blacks at 16%, All Latinos at 13%, Black women at 12%, white men and all whites at 10% and white women at 7%.
Quite a startling result, no? Is this racism? or something to do with the black population themselves? I am not sure because other races in the USA like the Vietnamese, Indians, Chinese seem to do much better.
Here’s a great report on this issue.
