Rep. Allen West is calling President Obama out on his lackluster response to the needs of black people. According to West, Obama hasn’t addressed the lack of start-ups and other entrepreneurial opportunities in the black community:
Florida House of Rep, representative Allen West, believes President Obama has no plan for the Black Community and his policies have not been effective in providing African Americans with jobs or the tools to achieve/grow their businesses. He had this to say on Obama’s policy in his recent speech given during the Conservative Black Forum.
He said that the level of unemployment in the African American community is about 14 percent and a thorough survey would reveal that the numbers may be as high as 18 to 20 percent. He also substantiated his claim with the statistics that showed African Americans are not been proportionately represented when compared to other populations.
“60 percent of new start-ups are in the white community, 23 percent of new start-ups [are] in the Hispanic community, 5 percent [of] new start-ups [are] in the Asian community and, with 13 percent of the population, you’re only seeing nine percent of new start-ups coming out of the black community,” West said.
