Rep. Allen West Suspicious About Positive Job Numbers

Rep. Allen West (R-FL) posted  the following on his official Facebook wall:

“Can someone tell me how employment in the black community has improved at a rate three times the national average in just a few months?? With numbers like today, urban communities should be well on their way to economic recovery then! There is something suspicious about the job numbers released today and it has me very concerned.  Sept/2011 Black unemployment:  15.9 %,  Americans overall: 9.0 %.  Jan/2012 Black unemployment: 13.6 %, Americans overall: 8.3%.  Is this dramatic supposed decrease in black unemployment a result of job creation or is someone playing around with the census numbers??  Americans need truth, not these number games.”
