The overall unemployment rate for black americans is 7.4% and for white americans it’s 3.8%, that’s a very big difference between both races. Policy makers accept this problem as normal and no one does anything about it to make things right. Also people don’t realize that black americans have a harder time finding a job that pays them good. The unemployment rate for black americans is higher than it is for white americans.
