discrimination-471There is much corruption when it comes to procurement.  Probably the industry with the most corruption is construction.  Keep in mind that corruption is the first cousin of discrimination which is why the establishment cringes at the thought of Black strangers coming into their territory.  They want to keep the graft private.
