The unemployment rate for black Americans fell back down to an historic low in February, after spiking up in January.Just 6.9 percent of black adults were unemployed in February, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the second-lowest such ratio since the agency has been keeping track.The low mark was set in December, at 6.8 percent.
