    This is a good example of a democrat keeping racism alive in this

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg focused on racial disparities
    in construction during a Monday conference, claiming that construction
    sites are not employing local workers in minority communities and
    outsourcing to White people.

    During the National Association of Counties Conference, Buttigieg urged
    those in attendance to work with their contractors and community
    colleges to build a workforce that reflects the community.

    "We have heard way too many stories from generations past of
    infrastructure where you got a neighborhood, often a neighborhood of
    color, that finally sees the project come to them, but everyone in the
    hard hats on that project, doing the good paying jobs, don't look like
    they came from anywhere near the neighborhood," Buttigieg said.



    He is speaking of generations ago, that problem was solved in the early seventies when labor unions were required to take in as many new black
    members as white members.
