Raising instructive fulfillment among African Americans is basic to shutting the racial hole in work on the grounds that the estimation of each extra degree is more prominent for African Americans than for whites, a report from Young Invincibles finds

Increased employment would help people in these communities lift themselves out of poverty. In addition, because poor economic conditions are an important causal factor behind poor educational outcomes and high crime rates are correlated with high unemployment rates, creating job opportunities would help improve educational outcomes and reduce crime.

I share the sentiments of TamZ. I am a black male who graduated summa cum laude with a BS in BioSciences, cum laude with an MBA in Marketing, post-graduate diploma in Finance and a certificate in Project Management, and I know there are less qualified candidates being hired for positions I have applied for. I am stuck with low-paying jobs (under employed) , a huge student loan, and buyer’s remorse; the significant education investment (time and money) has not paid off for me thus far. Now, I am going back to school to pursue a Masters in Public Health….talk about a sucker for punishment. Maybe I’m better off getting my plumbing license. SMH

Unfortunately the education thing is not entirely true. I am an African American woman who has graduated from elementary school as salutatorian, high school in the top 10 of my class, and from college with honors. I have a BFA and I still cannot find someone to hirer me. I have sent out literally hundreds of applications and have been passed over for interviews with over half of those applications. This unemployment gap is a lot more discriminative than just not having the “right” education.
