Supremes ruling – turning nice neighborhoods into ghettos

While we were so involved with the Gay Marriage and Obamacare Supreme court rulings, this little number came our way at the same time. Guess who is moving into our neighborhood?

In a 5-4 ruling, the court said certain housing policies that put minorities at a disadvantage, even if they aren’t expressly intended to discriminate, can be challenged in court.

The court sided with a community organization alleging that Texas’ housing department had improperly clustered Section 8 housing in low-income, high-crime areas — essentially preserving the segregation that federal housing law was designed to end.

Texas had argued that the lawsuit was invalid, and the question before the high court was whether the Fair Housing Act — a law intended to outlaw racial discrimination in housing — allows people to sue over practices that might not be explicitly discriminatory, but end up hurting minorities disproportionately.

You have worked hard so as to be able to live in a nice neighborhood where you can raise your kids in safety, and you don’t want some Section 8 crack house opening up across the street? Then you’re a racist. H/TMoonbattery

‘Disparate Impact’ Ruling Emboldens Obama’s Diversity Cops

Racial Preferences: Armed with a Supreme Court-licensed shakedown weapon, President Obama’s race cops will wage an even bigger war against lenders, insurers, employers and whoever else fails their “disparate impact” test.

Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch said she and her civil-rights goons are “bolstered by this important ruling” by the high bench, which by a narrow 5-4 vote upheld bogus disparate-impact theory as a tool to enforce laws against housing, lending and insurance discrimination.

Meanwhile, HUD chief Julian Castro said the ruling gives his regulators a “greater level of certainty” to go after lenders and landlords. “We’re going to keep using it,” he warned, including against local zoning officials who have the audacity to restrict high-density housing to protect against blight, congestion and depreciation.

And Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Chief Richard Cordray says any financial policy, practice or standard that has a “disparate impact on communities of color” is fair game. “That doctrine is applicable for all of the credit markets we touch, including mortgages, student loans, credit cards and auto loans.”

Obama, morever, suggested that the EEOC and the Labor Department will use disparate impact as a tool to prevent employers from using criminal background checks and “calling Johnny back for a job interview but not Jamal.”

    If communities don’t want the federal money, they can not ask for it. It’s not that hard, you racist, greedy sobs.

      You are too ignorant to know this is how the first housing bubble started. The Jimmy Carter red lining fiasco. Now banks are forced to pay Billions to the Attorney General in fines if they don’t comply with giving our stash to those who cannot even possibly pay their mortgage

        There were more hard luck stories of people trying to refinance mortgages they should never have been given by banks and brokers than you could shake a stick at. The gov’t in its infinite wisdom never fails.

        You’re an idiot too, regurgitating conservative talking points like a deranged parrot. You have no idea why the mortgage meltdown occurred. You’re not smart enough.

        And you’re the big brain, right? For someone who’s as leftwing-lost as you are, it’s astonishing how much you hang at Conservative blogs…..I’d have thought it’d be so far beneath you.
        So you don’t understand that giving people unable to to pay their debts a mortgage is a reason we have had problems? You don’t realize that homes going belly-up is a bad thing? That’s ‘smart?’ 🙂

        No, z, Jersey believes that high levels of foreclosure are good for neighborhoods. Get a hold of yourself.

        Now, Ameriquest, Countrywide and other unregulated lenders made a fortune selling no-no mortgages.
        Mortgages given to minorities under the CRA were qualified and were not a problem.
        But as Jersey said, this was a complicated event that involved a number of players.

        Investment bankers
        Debt rating agencies
        Unregulated mortgage lenders
        Fannie Mae (why were they privatized, that worked out well, no?)
        Alan Greenspan

        But since you like it simple let’s just chalk it up to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. They weren’t even the ranking members on their respective banking committees but it all makes it go down so much easier, right?

        Are you telling e that the American banking system didn’t have enough liquidity to cover the normal level of mortgage defaults on qualified CRA loans?

        Were you in banking with petermc3(LOL)?

        Maybe you and petermc3 can explain how the CRA applied to unregulated lenders like Ameriquest and Countrywide which were in the forefront of the bubble creation.

        I’ve asked these questions of fringe right loons and never received an answer.
        Care to try?

    I know you’ll be surprised to learn about this, but you will not find the mayor’s or city attorney’s residences anywhere near Baltimore’s black ghettos. Diverse neighborhoods are great as long as they aren’t in the progressive sections of the city.
