I don't like minorities because they get special treatment and steal jobs from more qualified people.

This is another form of affirmative action which results in higher costs to taxpayers. Contracts should be bid on with the lowest price winning. It should be race and gender blind.
Perhaps the Mr.Suozzi believes that women and minorities can't compete.

When will these lowlifes politicians recognize white men as a group who have group interests like all of these wonderful minorities. Without us, their whole lousy system would fall apart in a week. Death to the system. Restore the Republic.

Nobodys hiding behind any sheet. My ancestors we not sitting drinking Ice Tea. Members of my family were piloting the ships that brought you here. When they decided to get off the boat, they were more discriminated against than you ever were. They were called Green reggins (spell it backwards) Even when Mr. W.Man gave you education you still failed. Why is it that even in regular school (today) you still lag behind? You people as a group, have no self control, highest pregnancy rates, highest crime rate black on black crime ? Face it! with out Mr. W.man you're lost. You people as a whole are sub human. Your not that long out of the trees and your behavior show it. Your like little retarded kids that for the purpose of civil peace, we pat you on the head, tells your our good little boys and girls and give you something shinny to play with. and as for your 40 acres and a mule we gave you the mule and ya gave it back because you couldnt put shinny rims and curb feelers on it. You people need to finally stand on your own two feet. I have a job a real one. its not the one I wanted, that job went to a much lesser qualified B.M. for affirmitive blaction

Just a simple question. What ever happened to puttting these contracts out for bid? Oh I know, the process is racially biased so hence unfair. So once again the tax payers are paying for contracts with minority companies just because they are minorities not because they were the best deal for the county. Friggin Unbelievable. When does it end?
when will the racism end??? never.

Merkourios Angeliades of Manhasset, a restaurant construction contractor.? Now white Greeks are minorities, so I guess every European if not considered in a general grouping as white but as their original nationality are minorities. Merkourios Angeliades,(MIke) is a very wealthy and unscrupulpous man ala Onaissis and is a very large contributor to Suozzi. John Vilafane of Glen Cove is another honoree? Any chance he is another pal of TS as are all of the other honorees. Good start to Black History Month by TS> BS
What makes him unscrupulous because he is wealthy
