The U.S. economy continued to add jobs at a solid clip in May, with nonfarm payrolls up 223,000 and the unemployment rate falling to an 18-year low of 3.8 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday....

Unemployment for blacks fell to a record-low 5.9 percent....
J. Cox, Nonfarm payrolls increase by 223,000 in May, vs 188,000 estimate, CNBC (Jun. 1, 2018) (emphasis added).
The overall unemployment rate hit 3.8 percent, the lowest it has been since April 2000. Since 1955, after a postwar period of below-3-percent unemployment, the rate has been lower than it is now — 3.8 percent — in 27 months. Before 2000, the most recent time the unemployment rate was so low was in 1970.

But another metric hit a historic number. The unemployment rate among black Americans is now at 5.9 percent, the lowest it has ever been recorded....

Perhaps as important, the black unemployment rate has never been closer to the white unemployment rate....

Usually when black unemployment draws closer to white unemployment, it’s a function of spiking white unemployment rates. That’s not the case now.

As of May, the black unemployment rate is 2.4 points higher than the white unemployment rate, the first time it has ever been less than 3 points higher.

I like your sources. Now, HOW? How did Donald Trump directly narrow the wag gap between African Americans, and European Americans?

Was it by mass deportation of Hispanics, and Middle Eastern people?

All right, then. The net effect is that People of Color still lose under the Trump Regime. You can't ignore the mass deportations, then point at a sub 1% tick in unemployment to justify it.

No it was great before that....without the ideal of liberty and equal treatment under the law that war would have NEVER happened.

The ideals of liberty and equal treatment under the law, unless they're human beings bred like livestock. Right. Easier said than done.

You do understand that owning people, without allowing them to have last names, keeping them in chains, and forcing them to work jobs that are too hard, and dangerous for white people goes against "All men are created equal," right?

Unemployment has dipped below 4 percent only a few times in U.S. history. Yet the underlying figures may be even more remarkable. Unemployment among blacks and Latinos fell to 6.6 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively, their lowest levels in recorded history — and half the rates of five years ago.

This historically low unemployment isn’t part of a natural pattern — like the weather — as some left-wing pundits imply. It’s a result of the pro-business public policies created and implemented by President Trump and Republicans in Congress.
A. Ortiz, President Trump’s historic jobs achievement, The Hill (May 5, 2018).
Unemployment rates are poor measures of a society's economic health when viewed out of the context of cost of living and minimum wage.

More telling is the unprecedented stratification of wealth perpetrated, yes, perpetrated, upon 99 percent of American children by the ultra wealthy and their idiot accomplices who vote against their own interests.

Seeing single digit integers that were a teensy weensy bit lower than the last time everyone bothered to check = POC are economically/financially equal with whites and racism don't exist no more, all thanks to Lord Cheeto's templar leadership.

It's just a poor measure, a lagging indicator at best.

The context of cost of living makes it too complex.

What's living like a boss in Ohio or Michigan is poor in California.

Define "mass deportations," please. How many non-criminal (besides violating immigration laws) people of color have been deported? How does this correlate with the historic economic gains for people of color over the past year?

More significantly:
On Friday our country cheered yet another stellar jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And unlike the sluggish expansion of the Obama years, the lion’s share of this labor market strength benefits middle-income and previously ignored workers....

These reforms represent a particularly powerful tailwind for Hispanics, statistically by far the most entrepreneurial demographic in America. Speaking of Hispanics, the labor market news for them has been stellar. In U.S. history, there are only eight months where Hispanics report a jobless rate below 5 percent, and an incredible seven of those eight months have been in the last year alone under Trump’s growth agenda. The news is similarly strong for blacks, where the gap between black and white unemployment shrank to the smallest disparity on record. If President Trump is a racist, as his media critics constantly (and unfairly) allege, then he is remarkably bad at it!

When Republicans passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December, congressional Democrats denounced the legislation as a reckless attempt to help wealthy corporations at the expense of everyone else. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., famously dismissed the law’s benefits to most taxpayers as “crumbs.”

Six months later, many of the groups Pelosi and other Democrats warned would be worse off as a result of the tax reform legislation — including minorities, women, and small businesses — are not only thriving, they are experiencing some of the most notable economic growth in the country's history.

In January, the black unemployment rate was 7.7 percent, but by May, it had dropped to 5.9 percent, the lowest unemployment rate recorded for African-Americans since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began to report such figures in 1972. This rate is made even more impressive considering that prior to President Trump's time in office, African-Americans had never experienced an unemployment rate below seven percent.

Hispanic and Asian unemployment rates are also at historic lows. Hispanic unemployment in 2018 is on pace to be the lowest annual average ever, and the unemployment rate for Asians has dropped by nearly a full percentage point, from 3 to 2.1 percent, since January. That rate is now sitting at its lowest point in BLS records, which date back to 2003.
...

As difficult as it may be for Pelosi and other advocates of higher taxes and more government control to admit, the successes of the Republican tax reform legislation clearly illustrate that when people are empowered to keep more of their own money, everyone in society benefits.
J. Haskins, Six months in, tax cuts are already providing historic gains for minorities, women, and small businesses, Washington Examiner (Jul. 3, 2018) (emphasis added).

In June, the unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos, aged 16 and up, was 4.6%, down from its May level of 4.9%. Before June’s record, the lowest monthly Hispanic-Latino unemployment rate since BLS began tracking the statistic in 1973 was 4.8%.

While the Hispanic-Latino unemployment rate had been as low as 4.8% in five months, four of those months were during the administration of President Donald Trump; the lone exception being October of 2006:
1. June 2018: 4.6%
2. October 2006: 4.8%
3. June 2017: 4.8%
4. October 2017: 4.8%
5. November 2017: 4.8%
6. April 2018: 4.8%
During the 17 full months of the Trump administration, beginning in February 2017, Hispanic-Latino unemployment has averaged 5.0%.

In contrast, the national Hispanic-Latino unemployment rate averaged 9.4% during President Barack Obama’s eight years (96 months) in office....
