This fairy tale about black employment skyrocketing under Trump is far from truth:

Umm…that post is about median income, not unemployment or employment levels. Did you even read your own post? What am I missing?

Much better yes. Obama reached a peak low of 7.8% while Trump’s economy has lead to record low unemployment for African Americans at 5.9%. Your article is from July while this is most recent from October. Another difference in an income gap between African Americans and whites is a 20% + difference in college graduation rates. While there are many variables, that is probably the most significant reason for the gap.
