It really is as simple as that.

My friend, who is a regional manager for a large restaurant chain in a metro area with a high African American population, says very few Blacks work in the kitchen, bus tables or do the janitor work commonly filled by unskilled workers. Rarely do you see Black People doing construction anymore.

Why aren't the African American Males doing these jobs anymore? Do employers consider them not as hard working as the immigrants?
This is the very line many pro-illegal immigration advocates use (directly or indirectly) to justify their stance. And then they wonder why blacks aren't exactly so quick to get behind their cause. The reality is that all I see camping out in front of the Labor Ready downtown in the wee hours of the morning hoping to snag some work are AMERICANS, most of whom are poor black men.

Kinda a reverse 1865 thingy...?

I'm calling bs on that one.

First of all --- ex cons are not known for their work ethic be they black, white or hispanic.

Second of all --- there were many stories out of NO that contractors were hiring exclusively illegals to make a bigger profit. Legal construction workers went to NO searching for work but were turned away.

Before welfare there wasn't an illegal immigration problem, the Poor of all the races did the farm work...There were just as many poor whites doing that work as there were blacks.....
Blame American Companies greed for the lose of the trade jobs: Carpenter. roofer. painter. insulater....
The companies still charge top doller but don't pay a good union wage anymore....
Plenty of blame to go around......
Why have Immigration when you have unemployment???? Just don't make sence

There's no argument there.

Why is it that a black male from a "disadvantaged area" is considered "ghetto black?" I think that is kinda shady to open the thread up like that. How are you just going to blanket someone like that?
