Opinion| Lawrence David| By July 2015 investigative journalist Paul Sperry had uncovered enough evidence to expose Obama’s plan to racially balance every zip code in America…
(NY Post) A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the Fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”
Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.
This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.
Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online.
So civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists.
If you’re asking how this affects you, read on…
The granddaddy of them all is the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing database, which the Department of Housing and Urban Development rolled out earlier this month to racially balance the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code. It will map every US neighborhood by four racial groups — white, Asian, black or African-American, and Hispanic/Latino — and publish “geospatial data” pinpointing racial imbalances…
The threat of withholding federal funds and other grants will be held over every hamlet unless and until their elected leaders comply:
… Federally funded cities deemed overly segregated will be pressured to change their zoning laws to allow construction of more subsidized housing in affluent areas in the suburbs, and relocate inner-city minorities to those predominantly white areas. HUD’s maps, which use dots to show the racial distribution or density in residential areas, will be used to select affordable-housing sites.
HUD plans to drill down to an even more granular level, detailing the proximity of black residents to transportation sites, good schools, parks and even supermarkets. If the agency’s social engineers rule the distance between blacks and these suburban “amenities” is too far, municipalities must find ways to close the gap or forfeit federal grant money and face possible lawsuits for housing discrimination.
Civil-rights groups will have access to the agency’s sophisticated mapping software, and will participate in city plans to re-engineer neighborhoods under new community outreach requirements.
“By opening this data to everybody, everyone in a community can weigh in,” Obama said. “If you want affordable housing nearby, now you’ll have the data you need to make your case.”
Fortunately, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and your property value was protected. To be clear, while Obama uses race to push his policies, this is about culture, not race. I could care less how much melanin my neighbor has in their skin, I just ask that they maintain their property and are law abiding citizens.
That is until now.
New York’s former lieutenant governor, Betsey McCaughey is a person who always seems to do the deep dive into obscure policy recommendations… you’ll remember her as the woman hauling around thousands of dog-eared and Post It note flagged pages warning about the dystopian details of Obamacare.
McCaughey has performed another deep dive, this one into Joe Biden’s racial justice reform platform. It’s a shocking resurgence of Obama’s plan…
(Opinion) If you live in the suburbs or you’re a city dweller eyeing a move to a quiet cul-de-sac where your kids can play outside, you need to know about Joe Biden’s plan for a federal takeover of local zoning laws.
The ex-veep wants to ramp up an Obama-era social engineering scheme called Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing that mercifully barely got underway before President Trump took office, vowing to stop it.
Biden’s plan is to force suburban towns with single-family homes and minimum lot sizes to build high-density affordable housing smack in the middle of their leafy neighborhoods — local preferences and local control be damned.
Couple this with Democrat’s plan to, for the first time in American history, tax your wealth... savings, investments, retirement accounts, etc… while you consider your family’s retirement plans…
