The question for minority voters should asking of candidates, will they help create an environment for us to succeed. The bigger question is will these policies create a better economy opportunity for minorities in this country. Let look at the numbers:
Unemployment Rate of African Americans 10.4 percent, while comparable to whites, Hispanics and Asians were 4.7 percent, 6.6 percent and 4.0 percent, in that order according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
Disparities in Capital Access between Minority and Non-Minority Businesses-Very important because Minority-owned business continue to be the engine of employment in emerging and minority communities. Adequate capitalization our businesses wIill have full potential and decrease unemployment. According to U.S. Department of commerce Minority Business Development Agency, in 2002 there were 4 million minority-owned firms, grossing $661 billion in receipts and employing 4.7 million workers. However if these firms would have reached parity with representation in minorities in the U.S. population, these firms would have employed over 16.1 million workers, grossed over $2.5 trillion in receipts, and numbered 6.5 million firms.
So increasing the flow of capital for minority-owned businesses must be a national priority to re-energize the U.S. economy and increase competitiveness in the global marketplace.
