Force suburbs to be less white and less wealthy

Quote:Hillary’s rumored running mate, Housing Secretary Julian Castro, is cooking up a scheme to reallocate funding for Section 8 housing to punish suburbs for being too white and too wealthy.

The plan is to give large section 8 vouchers to poor, inner city people so they can move to more affluent areas where people actually worked their asses off to be able to afford to live.

Quote:Anticipating NIMBY resistance, Castro last month threatened to sue suburban landlords for discrimination if they refuse even Section 8 tenants with criminal records.

He has even passed regulations forcing suburban communities getting gov subsidies to change zoning maps to put low income housing in better areas.

Quote:In expensive ZIP codes, Castro’s plan — which requires no congressional approval — would more than double the standard subsidy, while also covering utilities. At the same time, he intends to reduce subsidies for those who choose to stay in housing in poor urban areas, such as Brooklyn. So Section 8 tenants won’t just be pulled to the suburbs, they’ll be pushed there.

The theory is to give them more money so they can move to better areas and improve their lives. That stems from the ignorant belief that inner city areas have high crime rate because the residents there are poor. It has NOTHING to do with income and EVERYTHING to do with culture. Moving them to better areas does not make them better people. They simply take the crime with them and infect the new neighborhoods and schools. They are the way they are BY CHOICE.

Quote:President Bill Clinton started a similar program in 1994 called “Moving to Opportunity Initiative,”... The 15-year experiment bombed.[quote]

[quote]A 2011 study sponsored by HUD found that adults using more generous Section 8 vouchers did not get better jobs or get off welfare. In fact, more went on food stamps. And their children did not do better in their new schools.

Worse, crime simply followed them to their safer neighborhoods, ruining the quality of life for existing residents.

Quote:Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing.

Quote:HUD recently tested this new theory in Dallas with disastrous results.

Starting in 2012, the agency sweetened Section 8 voucher payments, and pointed inner-city recipients to the far-flung counties surrounding Dallas. As government-subsidized rentals spread in all areas of the Metroplex (163 ZIP codes vs. 129 ZIP codes), so did crime.

Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation, and recently had to call in state troopers to help police control it. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the tony bedroom communities north of the city. Three suburbs that have seen the most Section 8 transfers — Frisco, Plano and McKinney — have suffered unprecedented spikes in rapes, assaults and break-ins, including home invasions.

Quote:Ironically, Hillary’s own hometown of Chappaqua is fighting Section 8 housing because of links to drugs and crime and other problems.

Back in the late 70s and early 80s a lot of black families started moving from large northern cities to more rural areas with the hopes of getting their children out of the hood and into a better environment. They hoped for better lives for their kids. Instead, they only managed to ruin those places. That is exactly what happened in my home town. You couldn't pay me to go back there.

My was a traveling nurse working on 13 week contracts and we spent about 14 years moving around. Whenever contracts would be winding down we would start looking at new cities and opportunities. In choosing between openings I had one tool I relied on the most. I would get the list of potential jobs and search for information on the City Data website. You can get most of the info you would need on there. (Except for schools in which I used Great Schools.)

I looked for three things on City Data: median household income, crime rates and racial demographics.

I found that cities and states with low median household income tend to have bad schools and high crime. They are also the places that tend to be more diverse. When I say divers I mean they had a higher percentage of blacks. Areas of higher percentages of Hispanics were not affected nearly as much if at all. The higher percentage of blacks in an area the lower the median income. The lower the percentage of whites the higher the violent crime rate. Below about 85% white and the rates start climbing very quickly.

If you take a closer look at those cities you will usually find that the crime was very high and the school ratings are very low in the "low income" inner city areas and the opposite is true in the surrounding suburb communities.

That is why I say the most racist people in the world are bleeding heart social justice liberal Progressives. They buy votes with free shit and never hold the minorities responsible for their actions. They treat them like little children that don't have the ability to make it on their own. After generations on social programs we have a people that believe the same thing.

This needs to end.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
