what the heck does this mean. i took the family down to D.C. sunday so my 6 year old could visit the lincoln memorial. and see some other museums.

the MLK jr. memorial was being dedicated sunday also. we saw a bunch of t-shirts, but the one mentioned above caught my attention.

i am white. not black. so can someone please tell me what, UNEMPLOYED, THE NEW BLACK means.

i can only think of 2 things. either they think only black people are effected by the high unemployment, or it is what they are aspiring to be.

by the way, i was unemployed for over a year, i just got a job last weak. i lost my house and now have horrible credit. so it happens to white folks too.

I usually stay away from political and racial threads but in my opinion I think they were trying to say that black people used to be the ones politicians could care less about, now its unemployed people as a whole.

If u listen to a lot of politicians they always seem to blame people for all their own struggles, which is true sometimes, but sometimes hard working good people go through bad times too.

now that you mention it, yes i have heard of that. it just didnt register with me then. so if that is what it means then that is pathetic.
