Equity thing not happening

Do I recall some racists whining about how, now that there's a black president, white people won't get a fair shake? Sure, that's why none of the $150 million-plus "stimulus" dough for those infamous "shovel-ready" roads-and-bridges projects has gone to black contractors, according to a new study by the Transportation Equity Network (TEN). Very little of the overall package has gone to any businesses that are not white owned.

I suppose we don't know how much of it went non-union, or to employees of color, or to poor communities in any way, shape or form.
