The mainstream media pushes the narrative that President Donald Trump is "racist" and that he has been far worse for minorities than was Barack Obama.
That's why it came as a surprise to many this week when new numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics blew this narrative out of the water.
The numbers show that Trump has actually provided more jobs for blacks and hispanics than Obama ever did. Unemployment in the black community is down from 8 per cent last November to 7.3 per cent now, and labor force participation rate in the African American community rose from 61.9 per cent in November 2016 to 62.2 per cent last month.
Among Hispanics, unemployment went down in the past year from 5.7 per cent to 4.7 per cent, and labor force participation rate held steady, dipping from 65.7 per cent to 65.6 per cent.
“All Americans continue to see results from the president’s bold economic agenda,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told The Daily Signal:
"While overall unemployment in November remained at a nearly 17-year low, the rate is also at historic lows among several groups, including Hispanics—where it is the lowest in at least 44 years—and African-Americans—where it is at its lowest levels since 2000."
These numbers show that Trump is following through on his campaign promise to bring jobs back to the American people. Obama was always more interested in getting people on welfare than he was in incentivizing them to get jobs, but Trump has taken the opposite approach, as he is not a believer in government handouts.
The media loves to talk about how "racist" Trump is, but they never offer any evidence to back up this assertion, particularly when he's doing so much to boost the economy and employment opportunities for Americans, regardless of their race.
