NAMs Have Higher Unemployment Rates

Of course Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and south Asian residents of America are invisible. Don't know how they managed to pull that off. But how often do you see them mentioned in news articles about unemployment, crime, incarceration, adultery, illegitimate births, high school drop-outs, or other problems? You'd never know that they have lower rates of all those problems. They do not fit the reigning narrative on race which Attorney General Eric Holder is trying to defend by calling us cowards. Black and Hispanic unemployment levels are higher than the white unemployment level.

9.7 percent: The unemployment rate for Hispanics in January 2009, an increase of 3.5 percentage points from December 2007 and the highest level since 1995.

12.6 percent: The unemployment rate for African Americans in January 2009, an increase of 3.7 percentage points since December 2007 and the highest level since 1994.

6.9 percent: The unemployment rate for whites, an increase of 2.5 percentage points since December 2007 and the highest level since 1983.

Since I prefer a society that works better to one that works worse (making myself somewhat of a statistical outlier apparently) I immediately ask "Why not stop letting in Hispanics who will suffer higher levels of unemployment?" Do our liberal leaders want more unemployment, more high school drop-outs, more illegitimate births, and more other social pathology?

Did you know that Hispanic immigration lowers black employment and lowers black wages? As if things weren't bad enough already we've got to make them worse. Maybe our leaders want to have massive problems to solve. They just do not feel challenged enough. Let us run up massive trade deficits, massive budget deficits, raise unemployment rates, raise crime rates, increase pollution, increase strains on ecosystems, lower average levels of education, just really mess things up. Then see if their brilliances can solve all these problems. It is like someone playing tennis with one hand tied behind their back while lugging around a bowling ball tied to their ankle.

Hey, why not wear blindfolds too? That seems like one of their techniques. Show that the blind can achieve just as much as the seeing. That's gotta be what political correctness is all about. Handicap us by denying access to the truth. Then try to manage society with falsehoods. That's America in the post-1960s era.

Yes, yes and yes. They won't be happy until America is a mix between Zimbabwe and Mexico.

Importing more Hispanics creates more voters (although not many) for a certain party and pisses of more blacks, pushing towards that same party. Also gets lawns done cheaply and other jobs done cheaply.

What's not to like?

Dems must pinch themselves from time to time,just to be sure it's not just a dream.

I have read that anti-discrimination laws raise the unemployment rates for protected groups. In the absence of such laws their wages would be lower but so would their unemployment. For members of protected groups that do get jobs though, protected status raises wages, giving them an incentive to lobby for continuation of those policies.

Sure they do. All my life, starting after president Kennedy's assassination, every single person in power has torn down this country. Anything they can do to wreck it,
they do it.

The question I have is, what is the source of this cancer ? Is this world run by the Devil ? I'm basically non-religious, but not militantly so. What other explanation is there, really, than some kind of Satanic entity runs everything ? Who would make a world where all the elites work to make it go Mad Max, or Soylent Green, or Logan's Run, or Omega Man, or an endless Barrio ? Who would make this world ?

Nobody.

Um, that would be 'reigning'... though 'reining' has some interesting implications.
