Westchester Agrees to Add Housing in Desegregation Pact
From the article:
Residential segregation underlies virtually every racial disparity in America, from education to jobs to the delivery of health care," said Mr. Gurian.''
Residential segregation is behind every racial disparity? What does that mean? Is Mr. Gurian, who is executive director of 'the Anti-Discrimination Center', saying that nonwhites must live among Whites, being in constant proximity to them, in order to be 'equal' in education, jobs or healthcare? That is about all I can make of his words. So he is indicating, as I perceive it, that nonwhites are not self-sufficient, able to accomplish 'equality' on their own, and that their being amongst White people is essential to their prospering in any way?
I would bet Mr. Gurian does not mean that as it sounds. He is either one of those ideological, doctrinaire liberals who really believes that Whites are selfishly denying nonwhites their ''piece of the pie'' by not 'allowing' them to inhabit historically White areas, or he doesn't really believe the egalitarian claptrap, and knows that the only earthly way to remove those pesky 'racial disparities' is by dragging everybody's standards down to the lowest common denominator. That was the way it usually worked in the old Communist countries; instead of 'wealth' being spread to everyone, poverty was made more inclusive. Almost everybody but the 'party elites' lived in cramped, dismal housing and had minimal creature comforts. That was 'equality'. So when the Gurians of the world finish with America, all neighborhoods will be grimly equal, with nobody living in middle-class 'luxury', and everybody living in shared squalor.
There is no way to bring everybody up to the higher level; instead, everybody will be dragged down, and the envious will have had their pyrrhic victory. Nobody will be 'better' than anybody else; misery will have its desired company, and the envious will enjoy their Schadenfreude at seeing Whitey brought down to their level.
Quite apart from the futility of social engineering efforts like this, and its impracticability, and its cost in dollars and cents, it's just simply wrong. It's wrong from a constitutional point of view; our government was not designed to do this. The United States government (whew, I almost slipped and said ''our'' government again!) has no legal right to meddle in mandating where people live, and in forcing taxpayers to fund the relocation of the have-nots to live (according to some imaginary 'right') among the haves.
The government is destroying natural freedom of association. You and I will no longer be allowed, if this continues, to live among people with whom we are comfortable, with whom we share certain commonalities -- of income level, religion, lifestyle, race/ethnicity, habits, or whatever. It will all be decided for us by Big Mommy Government, and it will be ensured by force.
The agreement, if ratified by the county�s Board of Legislators, would settle a lawsuit filed by an antidiscrimination group and could become a template for increased scrutiny of local governments� housing policies by the Obama administration.
"This is consistent with the president�s desire to see a fully integrated society," said Ron Sims, the deputy secretary of housing and urban development, which helped broker the settlement along with the Justice Department. "Until now, we tended to lay dormant. This is historic, because we are going to hold people�s feet to the fire."
The agreement calls for the county to spend more than $50 million of its own money, in addition to other funds, to build or acquire 750 homes or apartments, 630 of which must be provided in towns and villages where black residents constitute 3 percent or less of the population and Hispanic residents make up less than 7 percent. The 120 other spaces must meet different criteria for cost and ethnic concentration.
The county, one of the nation�s wealthiest suburbs, has seven years to complete the construction or acquisition of the affordable housing.''
This kind of government coercion is yet another means by which communities consisting mostly of White people will be forcibly broken up, and ''diversity'' imposed by government edict.
Now, 50 years ago, this kind of ''integration'' could not be forced on people if only because blacks were only 10-11 percent of the population, and they obviously could not be in every community.
I've noticed that many young diversity-minded people are alarmed at seeing pictures of White communities from 40 or 50 years ago, saying ''where are the African-Americans and the Hispanics?' Where, indeed. Now, however, our resourceful elites have solved that vexing problem. Knowing that certain neighborhoods and towns could not be properly ''integrated'' since nonwhites were spread too thin, they thoughtfully, in 1965, passed a law to ensure that no neighborhood need ever be color-deprived. The Hart-Celler Act, which favored Third World immigration and discouraged European immigration, began to import millions of people to 'integrate' America properly. Now, all these years later, there is still a color shortage, apparently, as millions more are sought to come and 'integrate' us further. Refugees help increase the numbers, since immigration is not fast-and-furious enough for our rulers.
Some of us have noticed that refugees are now very consciously placed in small, mostly White towns and in states with a diversity 'deficiency.' Do the powers that be think we are so stupid as not to notice this pattern, and to divine the reasoning behind it?
I posted an article a while back about the plans to bulldoze certain areas and to relocate people elsewhere, and remarked that I was certain it was more social engineering, more meddling. The New York Times article describes the other part of the plan. Places like Westchester (and maybe your town) will be the recipient areas.
