African American’s Unemployment Rate at 16.7% – A 27-Year High!

Of the approximately 14 million unemployed Americans, 16.7 percent are black, marking a 27-year high. Comparatively check out the unemployment rates among other ethnicities: Hispanics – 11.3 percent, Whites – 8.0 and Asians – 7.1 percent.*

What should the response of the Church be to such times? How is your local church responding to the tough economic times many are facing? If you know of something that IS working, speak up!
