Stephanie Czekalinski points out the gap.
In May, 11 percent of Hispanics who were looking for work couldn’t find it, up from 9.8 a month ago. Among blacks, the rate rose less than a percentage point, from 13 percent in April to 13.6 percent in May.
The unemployment rates among whites and Asians remained flat at 7.4 percent and 5.2 percent respectively.
Even if Romney's done irreparable damage with Hispanics and can't score votes off these figures, they can at least temper Hispanic enthusiasm for Obama.
And that could be the difference in places like Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, and Virginia.
