Corrupt Mexican Construction Gangs Steal Millions in Texas

“They are afraid that white people are not going to put up with their unethical acts.”

Ricardo Charles says he knows exactly why and after 33 years in the building trade, he’s blowing the whistle.

Black and White

Charles says those who run organized, largely Hispanic crews almost never hire willing African-American laborers.

“Oh no, blacks they are out of the question. Blacks are out of the question. Nobody wants a black person in there,” Charles insisted, a Mexican-American man.

The practice of rejecting black labor is deeply entrenched discrimination which extends to white workers as well, Charles says.
