The economic downturn has erased the gains made by the black middle class over the last 30 years, as the unemployment rate of blacks with a four-year college degree has skyrocketed, according to a new study by the National Urban League Policy Institute released Wenesday.

The study said that the unemployment rate for blacks with a four-year college degree has tripled from 1992, while overall black unemployment levels are nearing 1982 levels, when it was close 20%. The unemployment rate for blacks with a four year college degree was 6.5% in 2010, compared to 2.9% of whites with college degrees, the study said.

The report, released just as teh National Urban League begins its annual vonference in Boston, mirrors similar studies by the Economic Policy Institute and the Pew Research Center.
