Despite Loyalty, Democratic National Committee Has a Lousy Record of Hiring Black Businesses

By Jeffrey McKinney,

When it comes to hiring black businesses, the Democratic National Committee has much more to do.

Just 17.6% of the $17.5 million of the DNC’s contract spending for consulting work, including an anemic 6.4% for black businesses, was issued to minority-owned businesses the past year, a BuzzFeed News Analysis reveals. The activity for Latino-owned businesses was lower, coming in at 4.3%.

The analysis came a year after DNC Chairman Tom Perez and other party leaders pledged that diversity hiring would be a top concern moving ahead for the governing body of the Democratic Party.
