Fair-housing advocates planned to file a lawsuit early Tuesday against the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and HUD Secretary Ben Carson for suspending an Obama-era rule requiring communities to examine and address barriers to racial integration.
The 2015 rule required more than 1,200 communities receiving billions of federal housing dollars to draft plans to desegregate their communities or risk losing federal funds.
The 2015 rule, developed over a six-year period, required every community receiving HUD funding to assess local segregation patterns, diagnose the barriers to fair housing and develop a plan to correct them. Most communities were supposed to submit their plans to HUD every five years, beginning in 2016. Communities without HUD-approved plans would no longer receive federal housing dollars.

I sadly have been forced to have first-hand knowledge of Section 8.
I stayed where I could afford a nice apartment. Then incredibly trashy white and black tenants showed up all around the complex. My wife said “How can they afford to pay the rent?” Never working.
That’s how I heard of Section 8. WE the taxpayers pay their rent (except for a tiny nominal amount such as $61 a month).
I can’t afford an apt. 50% more expensive but they can stay year after year and not even work!
The left uses the word “diversity” like it’s a good thing when it isn’t.
Blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians of every country, Muslims, all segregate themselves on purpose for one simple reason. People like to be around others more like themselves.
When they force diversity on a neighborhood they are choking the life out of it. Dissolving what made it good and desirable to begin with.
A neighborhood is only as good as its lowest common denominator.
HUD’s racial schemes are based on the idea that Whites are innately bad and that, therefor, too many Whites together in an area is bad.
Sounds both racist and unconstitutional.
If Carson hadn't expelled them in a few years they would have been like the real life Huckstable(Cosby) family.
Good point, Obama was the modern day Moses.
If these people really believed in “fair housing” then surely they shouldn’t object if the low income housing were built in their neighborhoods, like Hyde Park, Malibu, Hollywood and so forth.
Force these people to face up to, and live out, the consequences of their ideas.
Everyone in an affluent neighborhood is not tainted by the neurotic compulsion to force egalitarian collectivist uniformity on others. Yes, I understand the “poetic justice” in your comment; but the idea of allowing social engineers’ fantasy driven projects, is imply to great a price to pay.
Examine a "diversity" cultist, carefully, and you have something very different than what is claimed.
We had that in my last neighborhood, which started out as a bedroom suburb for people with good jobs, with about 80% white and 20% POC managerial and professional peoplegovernment employees, doctors, accountants, etc. Then the county built a new schoolaaaand the helpful Democrats bussed in poor black kids to the school so that it was NOT 50% black, NOT 75% black, but 95% black. Why? Why?
So then the white parents in that neighborhood either 1) moved away or 2) put their kids in private school. The black parents either 1) put their kids in the majority-white expensive private schools in the area or 2) had to drive their kids long distances every day to lower-cost private schools or 3) allowed their kids to go to the school with the ghetto kids and put up with drugs, guns, knives and police in the school, and have their children judged according to the overall behavior of the weakest links.
Naturally, every house that sells, now sells for less to POCs who are not managerial/professional. Many owners who fled the neighborhood rent out the houses they left behind to Section 8s, all POCs. The strip mall has replaced quality stores with chicken shacks and nail salons. People who didn't move out quickly enough lost $100,000 in home value.
