Trust me, Barack Obama loses no sleep over this. He's too busy uplifting his anti-God, white, liberal social agenda to give a damn about what's going on with young, black men in this country:
More than half of the black male high school dropouts in the U.S. are unemployed, according to a fascinating analysis by a news site called RemappingDebate.org.
The site uses U.S. Census data—the same data used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics—to create a vast snapshot of the unemployment story for hundreds of different configurations of the U.S. population. While the current 12-month average unemployment for black males between 16 and 25 without a high school diploma was 51.6 percent, the equivalent number for white males was 25.6 percent—half the number for black males.
For Hispanic males between 16 and 25 without a high school diploma, the unemployment rate was 23.3 percent—actually less than the rate for white males.
For females, the numbers are a little bit better: black female high school dropouts between 15 and 25 had an unemployment rate of 45.2 percent, compared to white female dropouts at 21.6 percent and Hispanic females at 28.8 percent.
By contrast, the unemployment rate for black male college graduates was 6.7 percent, while it was 5.9 percent for black female college graduates. For Hispanic male college graduates, the unemployment rate was 4.7 percent, while it was 5.8 percent for Hispanic female college graduates.
For white male college graduates, the rate was 3.6 percent, while the unemployment rate for white female college graduates was 3.8 percent.
