Obama administration using housing department to compel diversity in neighborhoods
Fox News ^ | August 7, 2013 | Doug Mckelway

Posted on 08/07/2013 7:19:04 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory.

The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July.

"Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the zip code she grows up in. This is simply wrong,” he said.

Data from this discrimination database would be used with zoning laws, housing finance policy, infrastructure planning and transportation to alleviate alleged discrimination and segregation....

My zip code has been invaded by illegals and is now a dangerous barrio. If I moved, my rent would at least double. Is HUD going to help me move to a nice, clean, safe neighborhood? Didn’t think so.

This began with Dodd and Frank, Bush tried to stop it and was called a racist.

Not to sound bigoted or prejudiced, but so many from different ethnic groups destroy neighborhoods. This isn’t across the board, of course, but you get my drift.

We already have "fair housing". If you can't afford to live in a particular neighborhood, you live elsewhere. There is NO WAY that inner-city tribal parasites are refused housing in any neighborhood, IF they can pay their way.....if they live on Welfare, then they have CHOSEN not to improve their circumstance, and can deal with it.

This FORCING of Public Housing in suburbia is intended to turn ALL cities into "Detroit".....and the inner-city tribal parasites already visit suburbia, to steal Whitey's possessions, cars, commit rape, murder, etc.

When the communists BLACK Muslim was elected. We are in a dictatorship and Americans are letting it happen. We are finished and will never come back. Even most of the Republicans in Washington are useless pieces of crap.

In housing, it happened many years ago when dems decided to break up good neighborhoods by moving in low lifes to vote for them.

Back to the old Block Busting days of the 50’s.

All this will do is create rich ghetto’s. White people have been running from black for 50 years now. This is just going to Make more whites run.

Nah, this is not about diversity. Obama always went on and on about Equality before he got elected. Equal outcomes, equal salaries, equal housing.

Imagine if we were forced to all have equal housing.

Now imagine that with the comparison being global. not just here in the USA.

Great idea. Let’s take some of the projects from the South Side of Chicago, along with their occupants, and move them wholesale to Martha’s Vineyard, next to the place where the Obama’s vacation. (All at taxpayer expense, of course.)

Then take some movie stars’ homes in the Hollywood area and move them, along with their occupants, to the South Side of Chicago.

Should be interesting. Give these people a new perspective on life.

HUD needs you to stay in your home to maintain the proper racial mix for the neighborhood.

I think the way it will be done is to sell multiple foreclosure houses to hedge funds with idea that they must Section 8 them. That is how they’ll integrate all neighborhoods.
Personally I like the way HUD auctions them off now vs what they already said before selling them to hedge funds.

It’s not the address that matters. It’s the culture. Put the inner-city “black” culture anywhere— and indeed regardless of actual color, any kids will suffer the same poor life choices. Better to attack and treat the cancer than merely spread it around.

Fix the culture and it won’t matter where they live.

Don't you remember? You didn't build your life. Somebody else made that happen. Obama's that somebody. He's going to take what's yours and give it to somebody else. And people deny he is a communist.

So, if all the blacks are “engineered” to move to the suburbs to make all whites feel their pain and share their wealth, I see a problem for the congressional Black Caucus. They won’t have enough blacks clustered in any congressional district to get elected. I like two edge swords.

"Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard a child or her parents work, the life chances of that child, even her lifespan, is determined by the zip code she grows up in. This is simply wrong,” he said.

Zip code? Detroit used to have exclusive zip codes - places where the kids did well, graduated from college and went on to successful jobs. Now those same ZIP codes are home to black residents of Detroit. And those kids today in those ZIP codes are NOT doing well. I suspect it's NOT the ZIP code that matters.

Does HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan think 'white' rubs off and whites should 'socialize black families by living near them? That's insulting to whites and blacks. Shaun needs to rethink this one.

We already have discrmination laws based on race.

This will be about putting poor people in middle and upper class neighborhoods.

Obama is a Marxist.

It’s not race, it’s behavior. Don’t tag your own building or pee in your own hallway. It may be hard and take time, but clean living and motivation pay off. It’s not cool to have various body mods/piercings/etc or a “grill” or any other “subculture” dafacements. Play it straight or you’ll never be able to get a decent job.

Bush tried to stop it and was called a racist.

Hundreds of American volunteers with a belly full of Bush's violent open borders as tens of millions entered illegally during war time, were called "Vigilantes" by Bush when they attempted to assist in securing our borders.

NYC has many multi-million dollar coops. If you want to live in one, you need to be approved by the coop board - which requires voluminous documentation on your past life, current and prospective income, and personal interviews with board members.

Let’s have them prove that they don’t discriminate against low-income minorities. (The Feds could designate some apartments to be set aside for such families, with maintenance charges to be paid by the gov’t.)

Should be especially interesting because many of those coop owners are limousine liberals who make big donations to Democrats. (This is where Obama goes when he wants to raise money.)

Just about all my neighbors are “dark” Hispanics, some who speak English, and some who don’t, but they are all good neighbors, the best. When some Mexican gang banger thugs moved in down the road, the Hispanic men here convinced them to move out at gun point. I’m sure any decent black family, oriental, Filipino, or Sikh family will be more than welcome, and we don’t need no stinkn’ authorities making arrangements for us.

I think it has more to do with turning red areas of the country purple or blue due to the gerrymandering that will occur after the next census. You can almost guarantee they will be moved into predominantly red districts and not into rich blue areas. Just my opinion

This isn’t a new idea.
Back in the late 70s, early 80s a lot of subdivisions were built with a low income apt. section at the entrance.
IIRC it was done because of some Jimmie Carter admin. mandate.

WE have several upscale subdivisions in Raleigh with a ghetto-like apt. complex at the entrance.

Y’all can come and live in my swamp. We get no services except the occasinal mosquito spray (like that works) and if we are real lucky, a shovelful of asphalt for the potholes.

I hear the Hamptons or Beverly Hills is too white. Santa Monica looks open. I bet if you try hard, you can even put some in Georgetown.
