Imagine if George W. Bush (a Republican conservative) were presiding over 89 million able-bodied, working-age Americans who were not working, what would the media be saying, with a U6 unemployment rate (the government’s most accurate measurement of joblessness) at 14.3 percent? Would the media quote the lower, but far less accurate and far more favorable, rate of 7.7 percent and declare that “things are improving?” What if the Labor Force Participation Rate was the lowest for men since 1948, when record-keeping first began? Would the media trumpet a “recovery?” Never in a million years.
Imagine if a Republican like Bush were President, would the media quote the 7.7 percent rate but ignore the underlying numbers of 13.8 percent unemployment among black Americans or 25.1 percent among teens?
Imagine if a white Republican President were presiding over 13.8 percent black unemployment versus 6.8 percent white unemployment, what would Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, (U.S. Senator) Barack Obama and other black leaders be screaming? Would they be leading a “million man march” on Washington, D.C.? Of course they would. Would black leaders blame this all on racism and in particular a racist white Republican President? Of course they would.
