Diversity doesn't reduce debts or lower the unemployment rate...

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.

How do you remedy it? Make it mandatory that African Americans pay less to rent/buy property in white neighborhoods?  Grin

All that's going to do is drive property values down and create white flight. Don't see how they could realistically do anything about it.

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?


Yugoslavia combined socialism and ethnic diversity, just as this project is attempting to do. I don't think I need to remind you of how that experiment ended.
