A Historic Economic Milestone


This is not going to sit well with liberals. 

From economist Mark J. Perry

A historic economic milestonebased on today’s Employment Situation report for December. The unemployment rate in December for blacks fell to 6.8%, which is the lowest monthly jobless rate ever for African-Americans since the BLS starting tracking the black unemployment rate back in January 1972. The 3.1% gap between the jobless rate for blacks (6.8%) and whites (3.7%) in December was also the narrowest black-white jobless rate gap going back to January 1972. See Washington Post report here.
