Labor Day is upon us again and as usual, for more than a decade, the labor movement in the country has lost it’s appeal, giving way to the new definition of Liberalism, which is Socialism by default, Communism by choice. Liberalism, governmental control of economic strength, prosperity, and well being in country has sent the message, Americans out, immigrants, are in.
No community is more than out of the workforce, than the Black community, and coming in at a close second place is low skilled workers of the country. Not much to celebrate with that news.
The typical spin on workforce participation is that most Americans have opted out of gainful employment and has settled for entitlements, and as such, they are not counted anymore. But now, here’s an interesting twist to this tale of laziness around the country.
The nation's jobless rate has constantly been, just under 8 percent, yet the unemployment rate in the Black community is hanging out, right at, or over 15 percent, which will highly suggest, many in the community is still actively seeking employment, still being counted, but abandoned by the government.
While the Black community represents, for the most part, low skilled labor, there is a presence in a crowded high skilled labor market. Blacks, and other legalized citizen, for the most part, are being replaced by immigrants with work permits, as well as, illegal immigration.
In Houston that evidence is very much, crystal clear. Downtown has increasingly changed from the average Texan, to a more Middle Eastern presence. Malls, including the Galleria, has witnessed an increase of traditional Middle Easterners. The clubs and night life in the city is also experiencing the same.
In the low skill arena of Houston, it’s quite clear, only non English speaking Spanish illegal immigrants are participating in the work force. The traditional Black neighborhoods is also experiencing the attitude of, you’re out and they are in. Third Ward, Fifth Ward, Sunnyside and Southpark are also changing to reflect a non English speaking, illegal immigrant population.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is embarking upon a battle for the Black community. Sitting down with lawmakers is going nowhere fast. The general sentiment in Washington D.C. is, relax, it’s not personal, it’s business.
