    They won't be a happy until evert neighborhood is a ghetto

    **“This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of**

    This has to be the most insane idea yet. The way to establish equality according to the Obama administration is to bring every neighborhood down to ghetto status. This ought to do wonders for the housing and banking recovery, putting low life's into well established, well maintained, and crime free areas to terrorize. The only thing they will be proud of is cleaning out the valuables of their neighbors... This is further proof that .liberalism is a mental disorder.

    HUD's New 'Fair Housing' Rule Establishes Diversity Data for Every Neighborhood in U.S.

    To ensure that "every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of," HUD has published a new fair-housing regulation intended to give people access to better neighborhoods than the ones they currently live in.

    The goal is to help communities understand "fair housing barriers" and "establish clear goals" for "improving integrated living patterns and overcoming historic patterns of segregation."

    “This proposed rule represents a 21st century approach to fair housing, a step forward to ensuring that every American is able to choose to live in a community they feel proud of – where they have a fair shot at reaching their full potential in life,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan.

    “For the first time ever," Donovan added, "HUD will provide data for every neighborhood in the country, detailing the access African American, Latino, Asian, and other communities have to local assets, including schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class."

    • Actually this is what we need to really eliminate racism. Know why it's so rare in the military? Because we work and live together 24/7 for extended periods of time. If African Americans were somehow inferior the military would have noticed by now, but given the same job and working just as hard they do just as well, so from where I sit it's all of matter of opportunity, something that starts closing on them the day their parents decide they don't care if the homework gets done, or if you get caught skipping, because they're concerned with their current new flame/babydaddy/trick. Taking the easy way out always leads to the hardest path back.

      The bulk of Black America is doing just fine, but there are segments that are still stuck in the dependence cycle who need to be freed from it, even if we have to use the "toss him in the pond" method of instruction.

      • I couldn't disagree more. All this will do is reinforce it to the 10th power. Putting folks in to middleclass neighborhoods will not bring those folks up, it will only bring down the rest. HUD, and Section 8 are for folks who have had and are having trouble cooping with society and need state and federal assistance to survive. People didn't work all of their lives to move beyond trouble to now have it dumped back in they face.

        To use a military analogy in this case won't fly. First, most of if not all of folks in these circumstances would not be accept into the military service due to their background of substance abuse, criminal records etc. Second, the military works on discipline and a code of ethics which one must follow in order to stay in. Comparing the two is a fools errand.

        You can't legislate folks into a better circumstance by placing them in a scenario doomed to failure.
