• Here’s Obama’s New Plan to Racially Organize YOUR Community

    Since announcing that his presidency would be proof that a post-racial has finally been realized, Obama has been the most racially decisive president in a hundred years.

    This week the Obama administration announced its newest plan that will push America further into nanny-statism while ripping apart whatever racial harmony that still remains.

    Team Obama is gearing up to launch a new housing plan that will ultimately put pressure on local community and housing officials across the county to consider race and ethnicity as an important factor when accepting housing applications.

    Here’s more detail in this from the Washington Post:

    …on Wednesday, the Obama administration will announce long-awaited rules designed to repair the law’s unfulfilled promise and promote the kind of racially integrated neighborhoods that have long eluded deeply segregated cities like Chicago and Baltimore. The new rules, a top demand of civil-rights groups, will require cities and towns all over the country to scrutinize their housing patterns for racial bias and to publicly report, every three to five years, the results. Communities will also have to set goals, which will be tracked over time, for how they will further reduce segregation.

    “This is the most serious effort that HUD has ever undertaken to do that,” says Julian Castro, the secretary of the department of Housing and Urban Development, who will announce the new rules in Chicago on Wednesday. “I believe that it’s historic.”

    This is the federal government trying to solve a discrimination problem that the federal government itself created through segregationist policies over a half-century ago.

    Thankfully, Congressional Republicans are already fighting to beat back the Obama administration’s boneheaded attempt to desegregate American neighborhoods through mandates and social engineering:

    Republicans in the House of Representatives, worried by what they see as government intrusion into local planning, have already tried to defund implementation of the rule. Conservative commentators say it represents an experiment in “social engineering” in which the federal government will force white suburbs to change their racial makeup.

    “Let local communities do what’s best in their communities, and I would predict we’d end up with a freer and fairer society in 20 years than we have today,” says Rick Manning, the president of Americans for Limited Government. “Far freer and fairer than anything that would be dictated from Washington.”

    This is a perfect example of the federal government choosing to “solve” the problem of racial discrimination by instituting more racial discrimination. You can’t fight fire with more fire. Forcing communities to meet a quota based on residences’ race is itself racist.

    Here’s a novel idea, how about the government stay out of the business of trying to regulate housing. That hasn’t worked out well for them, ever.
