(CNSNews.com) -- The national unemployment rate for blacks in April 2018 was 6.6%, the lowest it has been since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started compiling such data in 1972, some 46 years ago. 

According to the BLS, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Blacks or African Americans, aged 16 and over, was 6.6% in April, down from 6.9% in March 2018, and down from 7.7% in January.

That is the lowest unemployment rate for Blacks in America ever recorded by the BLS since 1972.
