Chicago black unemployment at 21.4%

Backyard Conservative points out how well "Democratic" tax-the-rich ideas are going in Illinois. (umm not well)


Mar 2011 Beachwood reporter points out:

"Black people living in Chicago make 45 cents for every dollar that a white Chicagoan makes."

"In Chicago, nearly one third of African Americans live in poverty - more than three times the rate for white Chicagoans. Only Latinos in Philadelphia and Phoenix are experiencing poverty at higher rates than black Chicagoans among any race or ethnic group examined among the nation's 10 largest cities."


"Out of the largest U.S. cities, Chicago is number one when it comes to the unemployment rate for African Americans -- 21.4 percent. That's more than two and a half times the average for white people living in the same 10 cities."


From 2008: "One of the great fables urban lovers of Chicago like to talk about is some comeback of the city. The comeback, according to this urban legend, involves white families staying in Chicago to raise their children. With Chicago’s 150,000 white population decline from 1990 to 2000: Chicago was only 31.3 percent non-Hispanic white. What is even more pronounced is the lack of white children in the public school system. The entire Chicago Public School System is only 9 percent white. Not a single public high school has a population that is majority white. Not one."


Current research shows the population decline in Illinois from Jan 2011:

- This mass exodus represents more than $163 billion in net income loss between 1995 and 2007, which will only be exacerbated by the tax hikes.

- Because of this mass exodus the state has lost $16.9 billion in state and local tax revenue between 1995 and 2007.

- The tax increases will immediately cost the average Illinois household $1,488 more in taxes.

- The tax increases will cause the state to lose approximately 268,660 jobs over the next three to five years.

So, ya think more people will move to Illinois and Chicago now?!

ha ha ha...he he he... ha ha ha ha ha!


  1. Lisa,

    You're such a racist for posting this. NOT!!!!!

    The real recovery for blacks begins when they begin excepting that the Democrats do not hold their best interests. In the meantime, some will continue to grasp onto the whole entitlement mentality and remain where they are. Others will grab onto the opportunities available to them and become successful in life as so many that already have.

  2. You are correct about how any "assigned" victim group as to how they can recover, Hardknox... spot on

  3. Thanks Lisa, the hypenated Americans do themselves a disservice by the mere act of allowing themselves to be classed.

    America is a melting pot where the best, brightest, and most hard working people of the world have built this country. The left has been successful in seperating people into various groups. The divide & conquer stragedy has worked well.

    Case in point, when has the so-called Black leaders heralded the fact that 26% of the stock market is owned by 12% of the population. I call that success by any measure. However, it doesn't fit into their narrative. If the hate mongers called success they would be unemployed. Ditto for Latino hate mongers such as LaRaza and the haters at CAIR.

    Any race classification and special entitlement is racist by any standard. There is no such thing as more equal.

    BTW, have you seen my latest post "Marxism in America"?

  4. Hardnox - I'll come check out your post!

    cheers mate
