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.

Immigration (14:20)

Featured in Top Stories

There are an estimated 12-million undocumented immigrants who live in the United States. That number has been growing, and it's sparked a national debate over immigration policy and how best to reform America’s antiquated immigration code. 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.

Sex Offenders (16:38)

Featured in Top Stories

Laws designed to let police and the public know where convicted sex offenders live after leaving prison are about to get fresh scrutiny at the State Capitol. The laws restrict where sex offenders can live and determine how long they must register after serving their sentence. Some in law enforcement say the laws have no teeth because sex offenders who fail to register seldom face stiff penalties. While others claim the laws encourage sex offenders to avoid registering just so they can find a place to live after leaving prison.
