Minority Unemployment (6:53)

Featured in Top Stories

New federal figures show the U.S. unemployment rate stayed at 9.1 percent in July. Among state, Oklahoma has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. That is, until you look at the state's black community. The statistics are clear, and they show a large and ongoing employment gap between whites and blacks in this state. While there are numerous reasons for the gap, the major causes are as old as the problem itself, and so are the solutions.

It's a code that many lawyers and policy-makers recognize is just not working. And for those hoping to study, work and live in the U.S., the path to citizenship is long, costly and fraught with obstacles.
