The Voice of the Black Community




I can't explain how happy I was that this article was printed. I recently relocated to Charlotte area and in the town we chose to live ,about 40miles South of Charlotte, appears to only have positions for blacks in Walmart and Popeyes. As I go through the town offices and County job buildings it appears that either no blacks applied or were not qualified for those position. (lol)... I know this is not true, because I am qualified,accomplished and have the skills to be hired in a number of positons posted. Yes I have applied, but the reply is always, "we went with another applicant". Yeah I know you did and that person certainly was not of an Africian American.

I want to shout from the Mountain top, "does anyone care? does anyone see what I see? and in this 21st Century is anyone going to do anything about it?"

Thank You!

Nothing has changed, blacks continue to suffer during periods of high un-employment unless our politicians take a serious look at hiring practices being utilized in this country (using Temp agencies) to choose, blacks will continue to lead the nation in high unemployment numbers now and in the future. Purchasing from black stores will not correct this problem.

Black unemployment is way up, yet on the opinion poll, 70% say they would vote for Obama again. Back to the plantation - but this time it's ok because the massa is black too.

"It will take targeted job creation programs to improve on the new unemployment numbers."
Duh, no... it will take getting the government regulations out of the way so that anyone can start and build a business and hire workers. Why is the fall-back always yet another government program, when the solution is so simple?

Building businesses and supporting them is an essential part of economic recovery. If we can every get over the "Willie Lynch" system of segregating ourselves from one another. Realizing the house,field and educated people of color must come together to survive.

"the view from the bottom" Ms. MALVEAUX ,people hire there own. Black employment will decrease when black men build some businesses , then we will be able to hire our children instead of competing with them for min. - wage jobs. When was the last time you spent $20.00 at a black store. " UH" ." IT CAN"T BE THAT SIMPLE." want to bet?
