For decades, white people have had the ability to move away from the horrors of modernity, establishing enclaves free of a population group they'll explicitly deny has no bearing on their decision to live in such communities.
Communities free of black people, which white people implicitly search out to raise their children and spend a few fleeting years in a cocoon of whiteness every institution in America (both private and public) now vilifies.
The end of Freedom of Association is upon us, with the federal government now in the business of dictating just who will be your neighbor.
But just as a muscle atrophies if it is not used or exercised, this mandated diversity through the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing program is exactly the type of racial reawakening act that might just massage a long dormant muscle in many a white person. [Obama administration to unveil major new rules targeting segregation across U.S.: Administration calls move "historic," while conservatives decry it as "social engineering", Washington Post, July 8, 2015]:
When the Fair Housing Act was passed in 1968, it barred the outright racial discrimination that was then routine. It also required the government to go one step further — to actively dismantle segregation and foster integration in its place — a mandate that for decades has been largely forgotten, neglected and unenforced.
Now, on Wednesday, the Obama administration will announce long-awaited rules designed to repair the law’s unfulfilled promise and promote the kind of racially integrated neighborhoods that have long eluded deeply segregated cities like Chicago and Baltimore. The new rules, a top demand of civil-rights groups, will require cities and towns all over the country to scrutinize their housing patterns for racial bias and to publicly report, every three to five years, the results. Communities will also have to set goals, which will be tracked over time, for how they will further reduce segregation.
“This is the most serious effort that HUD has ever undertaken to do that,” says Julian Castro, the secretary of the department of Housing and Urban Development, who will announce the new rules in Chicago on Wednesday. “I believe that it’s historic.”
Officials insist that they want to work with and not punish communities where segregation exists. But the new reports will make it harder to conceal when communities consistently flout the law. And in the most flagrant cases, HUD holds out the possibility of withholding a portion of the billions of dollars of federal funding it hands out each year.
The prospect of the new rules, which will also cover housing patterns that exclude other groups like the disabled, has already spurred intense debate. Civil rights groups pushed for even tougher rules but say HUD’s plans represent an important advancement on what’s been one of the most fraught frontiers of racial progress.
“Housing discrimination is the unfinished business of civil rights,” says Sherrilyn Ifill, the president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. “It goes right to the heart of our divide from one another. It goes right to the heart of whether you believe that African American people’s lives matter, that you respect them, that you believe they can be your neighbors, that you want them to play with your children.”No, they can't our neighbors. Despite decades of intense of propaganda from Hollywood; from every major network (ABC, CBS, NBC, CBS, FOX); from every television program; from Madison Avenue and every commercial you see; from the day you step into pre-school to the day you leave high school; from academia and most intently from the federal government, the push to lionize and glorify black people, diversity, tolerance, and inclusion has almost entirely failed.
White people still desire to live around other white people, tolerating the importation of millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico to build new cities (paying incredibly low labor costs in the process) just so they can escape having a black neighbor.
From Atlanta to Birmingham, Memphis to Washington D.C., Baltimore to Richmond (Virginia), Charlotte to Chicago, Milwaukee to St. Louis, Jacksonville to Louisville, Philadelphia to Newark, and Cincinnati to Indianapolis, white people have abandoned the cities their ancestors built just to avoid living around blacks.
Though it would take an act of God to force a white person to publicly admit this, their implicit actions confirm it.
And the federal government is now doing more than "social engineer" with this Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing plan... they are on the verge of awakening a long dormant muscle most white people have been inculcated to never train.
And though for many it has atrophied, the simple fact that white people seek out communities of primarily white people to raise their children in ("the school system is soooo good") shows the muscle was still being stimulated.
The earth will literally shake the moment white people explicitly state what they implicitly know to be true... and though the do-gooders behind Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing believe they are seeking to promote the interests of blacks as they move them into white areas, in reality these government employees only showcase the utter inability of black people to create anything of value in the absence of white people: conversely, anything of value that existed before blacks became the majority race of a community or city will be blighted, ruined, or - if it's a business - closed after blacks have assumed demographic control of a city or community.
If people no longer have the right to freely congregate and choose their neighbors (the ability to create unity), then we live in a society whose government has decreed the highest goal is the promotion of disunity.
Strangely, I'm okay with that... because we move closer to the day the earth literally shakes.
