TAMRON HALL: Let me get your response to David Axelrod saying the jobless issue, the unemployment issue, is not exclusive to one community.
FREDERICA WILSON: Well, it sounds good, but it is exclusive to one community.
HALL: But with the national unemployment rate –
WILSON: Well, when you look at African-American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. And I understand exactly that the entire nation must be involved in this recovery, but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That’s what we’re experiencing. And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class: it’s slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with a lot of issues: racism, shipping jobs overseas, access, no access to technology, you know, the digital divide is there.
