While Black Georgians disproportionately bear costs from coronavirus, Perdue makes claim downplaying Black unemployment
ATLANTA — Despite Black unemployment recently reaching a “10-year peak,” a new Huffington Post report reveals that Senator David Perdue was recently caught claiming that Black Americans were experiencing their “lowest unemployment in U.S. history” — and that Donald Trump “has done more for that community than any president in the last decade — in the last 100 years, really.”
Perdue’s “categorically untrue” comments not only come while Black Georgians have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus outbreak amid the state’s failed response, but also as Americans across the country and in Georgia protest for an end to systemic injustice and violence against Black lives.
