Hispanics upset about DNC contract
Local Latino groups say a Hispanic state GOP leader shouldn’t have been vendor

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Some Hispanic Democrats are angry that one of the few major contracts for minority businesses at the Democratic National Convention went to a Hispanic leader of North Carolina’s Republican Party.

Convention organizers made a big effort to contract with minority-run businesses. But some Hispanics see contracting with the chairman of North Carolina’s Republican National Hispanic Assembly as anathema to the mission of the Democrats, especially considering the partisan differences on major issues such as immigration.

**SNIP**

Olma Echeverri, chairwoman of the Hispanic American Democrats of North Carolina, said the Latin American Chamber is an inner circle too closely tied to Republicans. She said the chamber should have made an effort to reach out to other members of the group who were Democrats or, at least, not actively campaigning against the party.

“If you had an event at your venue, well, they assigned you a caterer,” Forrest said. “They assigned you the event planner. They assigned you the entertainment. You could not choose who you would work with. The DNC assigned who you would work with. So that what was kind of awkward for some of the members.”

Think Commiecare™.

So now with the minority business contract setasides, we not only have legal discrimination based on race, the discrimination should be based on political views of the relevant minorities? However, I guess in this case it’s not the government but the Democratic Party, so I suppose they can discriminate however they want. But still, tis complaint seems unseemly...

Or they just know that if they want something to run efficiently, hire business people and not someone looking for a handout.

LOL My guess is that they put out the offers to Hispanics and blacks that had the lowest bids—you know the ones that wanted the business—not a gimme something for nothing bid.

Its like the Hispanic Bolsheviks are upset because the Hispanic Mensheviks were used to cater the convention.

And GOP Liberals want Hispanic voters so bad? 70% voted for Obama in 2008...even with John McCain writing the Illegal Alien Amnesty bill

Even the DNC occasionally needs vendors which can provide quality products or services at reasonable prices.

What would happen in the utopian world of Obama when everybody wants to be philosopher kings, entertainers, journalists and tenured professors, but nobody wants to do the dirty work of providing the everyday necessities?
