I hear people keep making false statements that African-Americansí unemployment is good under Donald Trump. As an African-American myself, I am writing to expose this lie.
Between April and March, Iíve gone to six job interviews. Not one of the six hired me or called me back. I have a clean criminal record, a high school diploma, a driverís license and work experience, so thereís really no excuse not to hire me. One man said, ďJames, theyíre discriminating against you.Ē I said, ďI try not to look at it that way, but something is wrong.Ē
I have lots of people calling me sorry and lazy, but Iíve been working since I was 14. Thereís nothing lazy about me. All I can do is put the application in. I canít make people hire me.
