The data is not unexpected since the unemployment rate for African Americans (15.4%) continues to track higher than the overall jobless rate for all Americans (9.5%). “In times of economic hardship, people have to make difficult decisions,” said Mellody Hobson, Ariel president and columnist for Black Enterprise magazine. “Unfortunately, the resulting trade-offs mean many in our community are slipping even further behind.”
