Obama administration using housing department to compel diversity in neighborhoods

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.

I wonder how it will prove discrimination or segregation has occurred?

Does this mean it will force white people to move to Detroit or Harlem?

They've done this crap in Canada multiple times (municipal, provincial, and federal levels). Neither the theory, nor the practice makes any sense; if anything, "diversifying" neighborhoods actually creates more tension between people who have a problem with different cultures.

The Feds will spend more money and accomplish nothing, but if you oppose this then you're a racist.  Same old BS coming from the Left.

Maybe there just aren't enough devout muslims in San Francisco for HUD.

LOL, I'm picturing a gay pride parade passing by a mosque.  Someone needs to draw a cartoon of that.

How do you mean?



But yes, I do agree that this probably isn't something that the government needs to be doing. I mean, are they going to physically force people to move into undiverse areas or something?
