HUD has determined or more correctly, Obama has determined the reasons for the high rates of failure among urban minorities are hidden within the five arbitrary numbers of their Zip Codes; change those numbers or relocate minority youth and magic transpires. The urban conditioning fades away, and is replaced with the reality of living the American Dream.
The thug culture is forgotten and minorities assimilate into white culture. Success will be just around the corner for those who are willing to adopt white values and goals. Blacks and others may keep their racial identities, but the goal is to become white on the inside or as my Mexican mechanic who specializes in working on German cars said, when asked about going with me to talk with Mexican machinists in Mexico about producing component parts for me, “Hell no, I am a white man in a brown body. Those guys would chop me up faster than they would you.”
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released a final rule to equip communities that receive HUD funding with the data and tools that will help them to meet long-standing fair housing obligations in their use of HUD funds. HUD will provide publicly open data for grantees to use to assess the state of fair housing within their communities and to set locally-determined priorities and goals. The rule responds to recommendations of the Government Accountability Office and stakeholders for HUD to enhance its fair housing planning obligations by providing greater clarity and support to jurisdictions receiving HUD funding, and facilitating local decision-making on fair housing priorities and goals.
In July of 2013, HUD released a proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule. As part of the rulemaking process and adherent to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), HUD must complete two PRA notice and comment periods—the first for 60 days and the second for 30 days—for any information HUD will ask program participants to provide as part of their AFFH obligation. You can find more information about first 60 days comment period here
For more than forty years, HUD funding recipients have been obligated by law to reduce barriers to fair housing. Established in the Fair Housing Act of 1968, the law directs HUD and its program participants to affirmatively further the Act’s goals of promoting fair housing and equal opportunity. The final rule on affirmatively furthering fair housing (AFFH) aims to provide all HUD grantees with clear guidelines and the data that will help them to achieve those goals, because no child’s ZIP code should determine her opportunity to achieve.
HUD’s rule clarifies and simplifies existing fair housing obligations for HUD grantees to analyze their fair housing landscape and set locally-determined fair housing priorities and goals through an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH). To aid communities in this work, HUD will provide open data to grantees and the public on patterns of integration and segregation, racially and ethnically concentrated areas of poverty, disproportionate housing needs, and disparities in access to opportunity. This improved approach provides a better mechanism for HUD grantees to build fair housing goals into their existing community development and housing planning processes. In addition to providing data and maps, HUD will also provide technical assistance to aid grantees as they adopt this approach.
Now, you can play along with the smoke and mirrors and assume Obama is trying to create blacks who are white inside, especially girls, ”no child’s ZIP code should determine her opportunity to achieve.” Fundamentally altering America leaves a wide horizon of discretionary options; however, let’s be practical and accept the obvious – this plan is not designed to help disadvantaged minorities: its sole purpose is to get even with whitey and punish him for assuming he can escape the blight of inner-city America.
You can take the boy out of the country, but he will always be seen as a country bumpkin and conversely, you can take a punk out of the city, but you will still have a thug. We have a continuous stream or at least a percentage of professional athletes who strive to prove this theory.
Liberals will see opportunity, and some minorities will take advantage of the situation and improve their lives, but this is not the real purpose: animus and strife are the goals of a community agitator. The community agitator is not concerned with the reason for urban blight and inevitable white flight to suburbia; because he is not concerned with answers, his strategy is to foment racial discontent and distrust.
It’s payback time, you suburban honkeys and if successful suburban blacks are affected, too bad, they can chalk it up to collateral damage. Lowered property values will be a form of wealth redistribution and it’s about time you learned what crime and drive-by shootings are all about or you can get your city councils to resist those millions in bribes and corruption from HUD, and avoid the whole mess.
A professional horseman for over 50 years, Skook continues to work with horses. Skook has finished an historical novel, Fifty Thousand Years, that traces a mitochondrial line of DNA from 50,000 years ago to the present. The story follows a line of courageous women, from the Ice Ages to the present, as they meet the challenges of survival with grit and creativity. These are not women who whimper of being victims, they meet the challenges of survival as women who use their abilities without excuses or remorse, these women are winners, they are our ancestors.
