    Obama Administration Unveils New Regulations To Racially Integrate Wealthy Neighborhoods
    http://www.weaselzippers.us/228564-o...neighborhoods/

    The Obama administration announced new rules on Wednesday that are meant to racially integrate America’s neighborhoods but some conservatives claim are an attempt by Washington to play a heavy-handed role in creating “utopias.”

    The new HUD housing rule comes on the heels of a landmark Supreme Court decision that reaffirmed the federal agency’s power to ban housing policies that hurt minorities.

    The Fair Housing Act, which originally was passed in 1968 and barred racial discrimination, demanded the government end segregation.

    The new rule takes this a step further and requires cities across the country to scrutinize their housing patterns for racial bias and report the results every three to five years. Communities would also have to set and track goals to further reduce segregation.

    “Unfortunately, too many Americans find their dreams limited by where they come from, and a ZIP code should never determine a child’s future,” Julian Castro, the secretary of the department of Housing and Urban Development, said Wednesday in a written statement. “This important step will give local leaders the tools they need to provide all Americans with access to safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity.”

    But others say the rule is nothing short of a government power grab.

    “This overreaching new regulation is an attempt to extort communities into giving up control of local zoning decisions and reengineer the makeup of our neighborhoods,” Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., told FoxNews.com in a written statement on Wednesday.

    I'm going to propose to my neighbors that 20% of us self-identify as black - problem solved.
    If I had to describe myself in one word, it would be "Can't follow directions."

    I wonder what section 8 housing looks like next door to the Kardashians.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    Don't expect to see these low income places pop up in Martha's Vineyard, Hyde Park or Westchester County.
