One is curious about the housing situation for each member.
One suspects that none live in a triplex or among a cluster of tiny houses.
Single family homes are racist?
Don’t you remember watching Ozzie and Harriet and Leave it to Beaver and how those families in their single family homes perpetuated the racist lifestyle and inequality.
