I wish that someone would shut this man up! His misinformation, his so-called knowledge of the facts keeps the black community stupid! In this piece Sharpnuts talks about Republicans cutting jobs when the Democratic-led Senate will not allow a bill from the House to be voted on. The Black and Latino community won’t see the facts that Harry Reid and Barack Obama are the ones in charge right now…stopping all legislation that has anything to do with coming out of the House of Representatives unless they “compromise – agree” to what the Senate Democrats want.
AL SHARPTON (15:34): One of the reason that I think people do not understand why unemployment has gone down and in some cases black unemployment and Latino’s has remained stagnant is over the last thirty two months Dr. Hutchinson, they’ve increased jobs and found jobs unemployment has gone down in the private sector. What has not gone down is in the public sector and blacks in particular are disproportionately in the public sector. One of the reasons those jobs have gone down, or have remained down is one the Republicans are cutting a lot of the agencies, where we are the employees are government jobs, government employed and a lot of those jobs go through governors and mayors who are also have had cutbacks. So what we’ve got to do and we addressed that to the President is take on these governors and mayors as well as the private sector on why the private sector is getting all these contract and bailouts and not hiring and correcting the disproportionate amount of their employment does not touch our community and have the President and them support us in that.
