Rush Limbaugh commented on this tragedy on Tuesday.

From the Rush Limbaugh website:

RUSH: Now, the labor force participation rate. This is a story from Gateway Pundit, and it is actually sourced from PBS. The black labor force participation rate under Obama has hit the lowest level ever recorded. “Five years in to Barack Obama’s presidency, the number of African-Americans participating in the labor force has hit rock bottom.” It was in the unemployment report on Friday, and it was totally ignored.

“The drop in labor force participation was sharpest for African Americans,” 60.2% . That’s the lowest since December of 1977. The rate of African-American men not in the labor force, the percentage of African-American men not in the labor force, 65.6% . Let’s use the reverse. Thirty-five percent of African men are in the labor force. Now, that does not mean they all have jobs. The 65% is people out of work who have stopped looking. Thirty-five percent of African-American men in the labor force, not all of them are working, but in order to be considered in the labor force, you have to be trying to find a job, you have to be applying for jobs.
