Black Contractors: “We’ve Been Left Out of Katrina Rebuilding”

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Saturday, September 1, 2007

Associated Press Writer

NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Black contractors on Tuesday said they have been frozen out of the rebuilding of New Orleans because federal agencies continue to dole out millions of dollars to large corporations.

At a news conference, the local chapter of the National Association of Minority Contractors called on the U.S. Congress and federal prosecutors to investigate the contracting practices of the Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The group also said they may resort to protests to get their message out.

“There’s something wrong with this cozy relationship between the Army Corps and major corporations,” said Ernest Stalberte, an association board member.

Stalberte delivered his remarks in a parking lot in a hard-hit part of New Orleans and he was surrounded by large digging and dirt-moving equipment brought in by black construction companies to show off their companies’ prowess.

The government’s reliance on major companies, such as AshBritt Inc., Phillips and Jordan Inc. and ECC Operating Services Inc., to do the cleanup after Katrina has been a source of contention since Katrina hit on Aug. 29, 2005.

A congressional committee has been calling for government agencies to do more business with small companies.

According to House Small Business Committee, the Department of Defense awarded 8 percent of its Gulf Coast recovery contracts to small businesses in Louisiana between August 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit, and October 4, 2006. However, that number dropped to 1 percent since then, committee figures show. The committee only had figures for the Department of Defense as a whole, but corps contracts have far outweighed other military branches for Katrina work.

Oprah Winfrey Aids Barack Obama With Factor ‘O’

Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Philip Sherwell, in New York, Sunday Telegraph

Last Updated: 4:01am BST 20/08/2007

In America, it is known simply as the “O” Factor. As the reigning talk-show queen, trusted arbiter of taste and general adviser on everyday life, Oprah Winfrey has persuaded millions of devoted viewers to buy everything from bras to books.

Now the world’s richest black person is aiming to transfer her Midas touch to the world of politics, as she tries to market Barack Obama as the first black American president.

Oprah Winfrey: hosting a celebrity fundraising party

The billionaire television star is hosting a celebrity-packed fundraising party for the Democratic senator at her $64 million southern Californian estate, in what promises to be Hollywood’s glitziest political gathering of 2007. Such is Winfrey’s media clout that the “O for O” Factor, as it may now become known, could well help Sen Obama into the White House.

The guest list at her vast oceanside Georgian-style mansion is being kept secret, but famous Obama supporters such as the actors George Clooney, Halle Berry and Jamie Foxx, the singer Beyoncé Knowles and the film studio moguls David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg are expected to attend.

However, Winfrey, 53, says that her endorsement of Sen Obama, 46, a fellow adoptee of the city of Chicago, is about much more than filling his coffers.

“My money isn’t going to make any difference,” Winfrey told her fellow chat-show host Larry King. “My value to him, my support of him is probably worth more than any other cheque that I could write.”

The largest categories among her loyal audience are women and blacks, both crucial electoral targets for Sen Obama, who is seeking to make up ground on Hillary Clinton, the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
