    We have seen these policies under Bush administration and the first housing bubble. It has been predicted for many years that the elite will displace the white suburbs with minorities as upper class desire to reclaim certain cities for work proximity and older aesthetic homes. We lost many historic neighborhoods to poor Blacks and Hispanics as crime increased. Some of our suburban areas have also suffered from economic slumps and lost jobs so that the federal governments hand out vouchers to fill in the lagging real estate markets. The government also contracts to build low-income projects, which collapse our schools within five years. Interesting enough, I see many of the burbs going Asian, low to high income.

    I don't think Trump's re-election is a forgone conclusion. Far from it, in fact. Like last time, he has the entire media apparatus (Fox News notwithstanding) mobilized against him, as well as the minority grievance lobby, but also organized labour (ironically) - which is going to create headaches in those manufacturing-wasteland swing states that propelled him in 2016. Plus, it has to be said, his record is mixed. He talked a big game, but has, in practice, tried to be too conciliatory. Only recently does it seem like he has woken up to the fact that everything from the centre leftwards hates him, is still apoplectic that he won, and will do anything to remove him, no matter what he does in office.

    Given that the Democrats have now been full-on hijacked by Marxists and are running on what is probably the most progressive and destructive platform ever seen in the west - kowtowing to BLM types, etc. - this is doubtless the most important election the US has ever faced. If Trump loses, America is finished, figuratively and otherwise. That the Democratic nominee is transparently senile and literally can't string together a coherent sentence or thought, yet is competitive, adds to the overall absurdity. Although, that does seem to be part of the plan - Biden will be a figurehead for a backroom cabal of the hard-left that will really be calling the shots.

    Trump overturning Obama’s plan to compel suburbs to build low-income housing is not racist. It’s sensible

    The president has been called a “segregationist” for repealing an order forcing suburbs to build “affordable housing” or lose funding. But it’s got nothing to do with race – 35% of those living in the ‘burbs are non-white already.

    President Donald Trump this week repealed an Obama era executive order called the AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing). It was gutted quickly after Trump took office, but Trump finally repealed it completely on the 29th of July. The original act was blatant social engineering, which would have forced suburban towns to build high-density housing in the middle of low-density areas.

    To no one’s surprise, the political left has already tried to brand this as racist. Connecticut Democratic Senator Chris Murphy outright called President Trump “a segregationist.” Kevin Liptak and Gregory Wallace at CNN stated that Trump was trying to “stoke racial divisions with the administrative rule change. This of course ignores the fact that non-white populations in suburbs have been rising since the 1990s, and is now up to 35% of the total, according to the left-leaning
    Brookings Institute.

    But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good narrative? The fact that the suburban population reflects the overall diversity of the country means absolutely nothing to the political left. Any time you oppose the idea of social engineering like the AFFH, you are a racist. Granted, as I’ve seen in my own life, you’re branded a racist for challenging any narrative.

    There are two realities at work here. The first is that the original executive order was a disastrous idea even in concept. Low density areas would have to scrap zoning laws, build bigger water and sewer lines, expand social services, add mass transit, and so forth. This would increase taxes, making life for those who don’t want to live in a giant city too much like… living in a giant city. It defeats the purpose of a low-density area! It makes about as much sense as a vegan restaurant introducing steak to the menu.

    The second is how much it ignores reality. As I mentioned earlier, more and more people who are non-white are fleeing to the suburbs. The appeal of those areas and that type of life isn’t something that has anything to do with skin color. It has everything to do with quality of life. As someone who lived in the suburbs of Chicago in the 1990s, I know it’s never been a ‘whites only’ type of life. Ever. If there was even a shred of discrimination in those neighborhoods, the federal government would snap down on it before you could blink.

    Segregation is not something that exists in the United States. We threw it out with Jim Crow. People are fleeing to the suburbs, and want the suburbs to remain the suburbs, because it’s calm and peaceful. It doesn’t have the trappings of a big city life. There’s less crime. There’s less noise. None of these things have anything to do with skin color. The white picket fence and two-story house lifestyle is something that all Americans find appealing, because it’s something we all dream of. But this just shows how much the media is out of touch with America.

    If you want to live in the suburbs and don’t want it to be the city, I suppose you’re not black, according to CNN and the Democratic Party. How classy of them.

    Facts are that the rich aren't affected by Obama's laws. Only the middle class. They are forcing the ghetto into the suburbs.

    Oh, didn't Obama buy a house on Martha's Vineyard? And one in a spacious neighborhood in D.C.? Yep, I guess just because I was born a white Caucasian, I'm automatically a racist.

    R T: Trump overturning Obama’s plan to compel suburbs to build low-income housing is not racist. It’s sensible 31 VII 2020.
