Our nation's economy is now two years into shaky recovery following the Great Recession of 2007-2009, yet for millions of Americans still out of work, recovery is largely meaningless. All Americans saw significant job losses during the Great Recession and comparatively high unemployment rates persist for all population groupsnone, more so than African Americans. Unemployment rates for African Americans by gender, education, and age are much higher today than those of whites, and these unemployment rates for African Americans rose much faster than those for comparable groups of whites during and after the Great Recession. Unemployment rates for many black groups, in fact, continue to rise during the economic recovery while they start to drop for whites. The first few months of 2011 saw substantial employment gains for African Americans, but job growth stalled yet again in the past few months. It is now painfully clear that African Americans are still facing depression-like unemployment levels. Policymakers should obviously address the overarching problem of unemployment in whatever plan come together to raise the federal debt limit by August 2, but there are unique structural obstacles that prevent African Americans from fully benefiting from economic and labor market growthobstacles that deserve particular attention when unemployment rates for African Americans stand at highest levels since 1984. This issue brief details these high unemployment rates and explores reasons for them, including particular weaknesses in sectors that offer disproportionate employment opportunities for African Americans, long unemployment spells, and recurring first fire, last hired phenomenon among African Americans that plague our nations workforce practices. We suggest few need short-term remedies. Most immediately, we suggest an overhaul of the unemployment insurance system to address this problem alongside more job creation and job training programs aimed at different groups of African Americans.

WASHINGTON President Trump commutes sentence of his longtime friend Roger J. Stone Jr. On seven felony crimes on Friday, using the power of his office to spare a former campaign adviser days before Mr. Stone was to report to federal prison to serve a 40-month term. In a lengthy written statement punctuated by the sort of inflammatory language and angry grievances characteristic of presidents ' Twitter feed, White House denounce overzealous prosecutors who convicted Mr. Stone on process-base charges stemming from witch hunts and Russia hoax investigation. The statement does not assert that Mr. Stone was innocent of false statements and obstruction counts, only that he should not have been pursued because prosecutors ultimately filed no charges of underlying conspiracy between Mr. Trumps campaign and Russia. Roger Stone has already suffered greatly, it say. He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case. Roger Stone is now a free man! Commutation, announced late on Friday, when potentially damaging news is often release, was the latest action by the Trump administration to upend the Justice system to help presidents convict friends. The Justice Department moved in May to dismiss its own criminal case against Mr. Trumps ' former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, who had plead guilty to lying to the FBI and last month, Mr. Trump fired Geoffrey S. Berman, United States Attorney whose office prosecuted Michael D. Cohen, president former personal lawyer, and has been investigating Rudolph W. Giuliani, another of his lawyers. Democrats quickly condemned the president's decision, characterizing it as an abuse of the rule of law. With this commutation, Trump made clear that there are two systems of justice in America: one for his criminal friends, and one for everyone else, say Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California and leader of the drive to impeach Mr. Trump last year for pressuring Ukraine to incriminate his domestic rivals. Two House committee chairmen quickly announced that they would investigate the circumstances of the commutation, suggesting that it was a reward for Mr. Stones ' silence protecting the President. No other President has exercised clemency power for such patently personal and self-serving purpose, said a statement issued by Representatives Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn B. Maloney, both New York Democrats. Senator Mitt Romney, Republican of Utah, called commutation unprecedented, historic corruption in a tweet. Mr. Stone, 67, longtime Republican operative, was convicted of obstructing a congressional investigation into Mr. Trumps ' 2016 campaign and possible ties to Russia. Prosecutors convinced jurors that he lies under oath, withheld trove of documents and threatened associates with harm if he cooperated with congressional investigators. Mr. Stone maintains his innocence and claimed prosecutors want him to offer information about Mr. Trump that he says does not exist. As his time to report to prison near, Mr. Stone openly lobbied for clemency, maintaining that he could die in prison and emphasizing that he had stay loyal to the President rather than help investigators.
Where different groups of people live and the homes in which they live are not simply neutral or random demographic phenomena. They profoundly influence allocation of rewards in the United States. Last year marked the 50 anniversary of the release of Kerner Report 2 and the passage of the Fair Housing Act. Spur by race-related unrest that broke out in more than 100 US cities between 1965 and 1968, Kerner Report denounces structural barriers to economic equality afflicting Black communities in the United States. 3 Report points to the role of White Racism and pervasive discrimination against and segregation of African Americans in housing, employment, and education in the creation and perpetuation of two societies: one Black, one whiteseparate and unequal. 4 Fair Housing Act, which was passed in April 1968 as Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act, was meant to eliminate overt discrimination and disparities in the housing market and ultimately end residential segregation. Specifically, it prohibits discrimination in sale or rental of housing; financing of housing; and provision of brokerage services based on persons inclusion in protected class, including race, color, and national origin. 5 despite economic and political gains that African Americans have achieved since passage of the Civil Rights Act, significant disparities still exist between African Americans and non-Hispanic whites in terms of access to homeownership, quality education, and employment, among other assets. These disparities are reflected in persisting residential segregation and racially segmented housing marketand they have significant implications for African Americans ' economic mobility. Segregation, disparate access to Credit and homeownership, and consistent devaluation of homes in Black neighborhoods 6 combine to constrict the ability of African Americans to build equity and accumulate wealth through homeownership. This Report focuses on residential patterns of Black and non-Hispanic White Home Mortgage borrowers and Racial disparities in Home appreciation in neighborhoods where these borrowers purchase their homes. Throughout the report, author uses terms African American and Black as well as non-Hispanic White and White interchangeably. Neighborhoods where homebuyers purchase their homes contribute to their homes worth and their chance of appreciating over time, which has important implications for long-term financial returns Associate with homeownership. Before presenting the original analysis of Home Mortgage lending to Black and White homebuyers prior to and after the 2008 Financial crisis, this Report discusses government policies and other factors that have led to and continue to contribute to persisting African American segregation. The Report also provides an overview of the Fair Housing Act in addressing housing discrimination and segregation. Despite some progress in achieving integration, weaknesses in Fair Housing enforcement have undermined the ability of the Fair Housing Act to dismantle segregation and combat discrimination. Forms of discrimination that were common in the past have been shifting over time, and housing discriminationalong with persisting residential segregationcontinue to hamper African American homebuyers ' ability to build equity.
