Dem Rep Blames Black Unemployment on Racism (Video)

Democrat Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told MSNBC last night that black unemployment was due to racism.

Real Clear Politics reported:

“When you look at African American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. I understand exactly the entire nation must be involved in this recovery but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That’s what we’re experiencing,” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told MSNBC.

“And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class; it’s slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with many issues. Racism, shipping jobs overseas, access — no access to technology. You know, the digital divide is there and many of the new jobs that’s what it requires. So, we have a problem.”

That’s it. Let’s pump in wifi. That will fix the problem. After all, wifi is a human right.

    Hard to take anyone serious when they look like they got their wardrobe from a 1978 Rose Bowl Parade float.

    The last 45 years of Democratic social policy has destroyed the black family and community by making them victims dependent on the government. I think that qualifies as racism.

  • Remco Kimber

    Keep it up. Keep blaming others and chimeras like “racism” as the causes of black un-achievement.

    Yeap, Whitey’s right there forcing all them black girls to have babies with no fathers. And Whitey’s right there forcing all them black kids to watch TV endlessly. And on and on.

    I blame the recession in USA on racism as well: 93% of the blacks caused the seriousness of the recession by voting for Obama. Even McCain would have got rid of the recession long ago.

  • Major Kong

    Somehow she failed to cite the disastrous “Great Society” programs that have left blacks worse off than before the programs’ inception. Just an over-site I’m sure. More of that nettlesome “road to hell being paved with good intentions”. Wonder what the subliminal message is that she’s trying to send wearing all that RED?

  • Dave-O

    I thought Obama was going to fix all that. WTF?


    maybe because they make more money selling crack and drugs and gang banging and flash mobbing….they are too BUSY TO LOOK FOR JOBS….. what a stupid Cee yoU Next Tuesday

    I’ve stopped having sympathy for those who will NOT do what is necessary to improve their own conditions, as in wilful refusal to exercise common sense.

    And Step #1 is to Stop Voting Democratic.

    The racism charge has become a laugh. Go on, call me racist. I’ve stopped caring.

    The GP writers need to write a chronological listing of the names the Tea Party has been called since the beginning. “Tri corner hat wearing loons” “A flash in the pan.” “old retired SS recipients” “Old white people” “bunch of racists” “terrorists” “the enemy” “Hostage takers”

    my how far they have come in such a short time!

    From nothing that will fade to the worlds worst group of racist terrorist hostage takers.

    Do you know WHY the progression of the name calling? NONE of them has worked so far and the influence has spread so wide. And these progressives know they are in trouble.

    I wondered why unemployment of Blacks increased while Obama was President.
    Thank you, Congresswoman, because now we know it’s because Obama is a racist.

  • BS-meter

    This one nearly broke the needle on the ol’ meter. If, for the last 30 years such strides had been made, it must have been because none of the causes she lists were a factor.

    Now, with our post-racial president at the helm of the ship of state, suddenly racism has reared its ugly head and undone all of this progress? Correct me if I’m wrong, but out of the last 30 years, twenty of them were guided by republican presidents. So does this mean that the chump now residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave is responsible for this catastrophic unravel? Well, DUH!

    How did this woman get elected? Wait! Don’t tell me…..let me guess. Just like the “Won”, she appears a product of affirmative action. That, and a chronic “I-am-a-victim” mentality.

    She should be arrested for being STUPID in a No-Stupid zone.

  • paul52

    How many of these 40% unemployed are convicted felons? Can read and write at an adult level? Have sired illegitimate children? Are all inked up? Are even looking for work? Are 3rd generation welfare recipients?… BTW, some rodeo clown somewhere is missing a hat!

  • arnonerik

    It must be Obama’s white half because we know it’s impossible for a Black man or woman to be racist.

  • DanO

    Uhm. We need to come to terms with the FACT that Ms. Wilson is correct.

    Of course black unemployment is due to racism.

    When blacks overwhelming vote for for a candidate that had no accomplishments outside of teaching ACORN how to shake down banks for NINJNA* loans because he better matched their melanin count, that’s racism.

    And thanks to that racism, we now have The Barackalypse.

    Digital divide? No. I live at the heart of an Amish community. Of course, they have no computers in their home or shops. They do have access to them at the local library. For free. They utilize the library constantly for the technology and, thankfully, for the books. They come in to town in their buggies in all kinds of weather. It is an EFFORT! They don’t trash the equipment either. SO, don’t give me that crap about the digital divide. Opportunity is there except for the overseers like people on this DISGUSTING Black Caucus who are the real villians of this story. It pays to keep your own people down doesn’t it?

  • HeavyDee

    You’re right Congresswoman, it’s racism!! Pure and simple racism. However, it’s not on the part of those that you accuse. The racism in America comes mostly from the left and their glorious social programs that have taken away any and all desire to improve their lot in life. Modern day slaves only have to work one or two days a year and vote to keep their democrat masters in power. Their vote ensures that little trickle down of poverty keeps flowing to them while their master stuffs his face at the trough and then tells them they can’t do any better for themselves without his benevolent care. BS through and through!!
