United Nations: People are calling the international community to the plight of Black Unemployment

All I have to say is wow, it’s that bad:Group Wants UN Scrutiny Of U.S. Black Unemployment, April 26, 2010  http://www.citylimits.org/news/articles/3956/group-wants-un-scrutiny-of-u-s-black-unemployment

 As national attention is drawn to the bp oil spill, the President’s current Supreme Court nomination and home foreclosures, it seems that unemployment remains wisping in the wind. As I read one Associated Press article concerning white flight into the cities and basically because they’re there, now the cities are worthy of federal assistance, I cannot help but think that’s what happened with the housing crisis. When it affects a growing number of certain people, that’s when bailouts are necessary? Anyway, back to unemployment. It is 2010, though I will say living in the DC metro area I see on nearly a daily basis ignorant (behavior wise) blacks, they are those who are not just educated but actually attempt to conduct themselves professionally and remain delusionally hopeful that they will derive some benefit from the legal job market.

One news article just posted TODAY stated: “But the ugly truth is that the road to success that the degree they’ve earned was supposed to open up is littered with potholes that their education cannot overcome. This year, blacks who have earned a bachelor’s degree and higher have a higher unemployment rate than whites who have only obtained a two-year college degree. And blacks with college degrees earn substantially less than white college graduates.” [ Black college graduates face road full of potholes, May 11, 2010, http://www.statesmanjournal.com/article/20100511/OPINION/5110318/1049/OPINION ]. So just imagine black unemployed law graduates with additional student loan debt.

It is 2010-black unemployment is highest across the board throughout the nation. Apparently since the government and private sector does not care to risk employing the majority of black Americans, help from the international community is sought. The international community is powerless to do any thing.  Here are some viable options: 1) educated black women stop being single moms, no I’m not referring to those who are divorced, widowed or have an annulment, I ‘m referring to the superwoman mentality in which black women just want to be a mom and feel that a traditional family structure is out of there reach. I read statistically that women in urban areas who are single moms are likely to birth children who will live below the poverty level. Instead, marry a good guy from another country who is educated and not looking for a visa to remain in the country. That way you can get dual citizenship and maybe employed elsewhere while expanding your horizons. 2) Americans can start facing the reality that education is not the cure for society’s ills whether financial or social. The more debt people have, the worse their outlook of the world, the worst their social interactions, the more deranged members of so-called civilized society. The economic devastation is all too self-explanatory regarding: plummeting credit scores, high interest rates, living paycheck to paycheck, inability to do more things one enjoys, feeling trapped, and I truly believe that this contributes to most attorneys having low self esteem masked in a surreal ego for survivial. Other than those with mental and physical disabilities, and maybe those who are just inclined to be hateful, this would give some sort of perspective as to why contract attorneys are so deranged on assigned cases.

The international community in reality cannot force the federal government to fairly employ qualified citizens within their borders. Due to mutual respect of nations and international custom the only thing the international community can really do is put pressure on the United States which I doubt it will do,  through such mechanisms as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Since most UN mechanisms have a two prong methodology: one can be a signatory of an instrument to say you agree with the contents but unless a particular nation ratifies it, the international community cannot bring it under it’s jurisdiction in a particular global forum.

With the overemphasis of free market and free trade…the fact that most black Americans aren’t considered worthy of respect,  the international community is not going to risk their financial and political stability by fighting on behalf of what many consider “the permanent underclass.” Should anyone know anything about Russia, Poland and Germany ummm African immigrants are not a priority and likely swept aside as a non-issue, just as the more indigenous Black Americans are in the U.S.

This post is bleak, I don’t have a solution. Most federal laws are more easily enforceable when the employer is an actual government entity versus a member of the private sector. The private sector runs the country, “big business”, lobbyists, loan generators, insurance companies and the Federal Reserve. These entities could care less about equal employment opportunities and fairness.

It’s time for a Civil Rights Movement revival, apparently this country has regressed to the era of the old guard.

    Finally, it’s getting recognition. I was getting sick of people just claiming minorities are lazy or stupid or whatever other racist reason people spout off to not have to admit they got where they were at least partly due to entitlements and white privilege. It took an epic recession to get there, but at least we are finally seeing more honesty.

    Not that this helps in any way. But it feels better to have the truth out there.

      Some people are told that whatever they want it’s rightfully theirs, regardless of whether or not they work for it because of privileged status, others are told to work hard, be twice as good as others if you can, for a CHANCE to be treated fairly. Let’s face it, alot ignorant, disrespectful “educated” blacks especially in the legal field full of spite and bitterness who spew their insecurities on other blacks. This inhibits the chances of those who attempt to conduct themselves professionally and as a decent human being. This is how they justify oppression. So the ones who actually are decent good people are lumped in with the vagabonds.

    Damn. The UN? We are really going back in time – reminds me of the old black and whites of the Civil Rights Movement, with Bull Conner, the dogs and water hoses, outright beatdowns and murders and foreign nation outrage at what was REALLY going on in America. Since it appears the gov’t owns half of big business, the WH needs to address this before it becomes even more of an embarrassment, particularly since a beneficiary of the Civil Rights Movement helms this nation.
