Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Powerline has a column on President Trump’s decision to revoke President Obama’s rule on AFFH (Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing). The Left claims the decision is racist. It’s not.
President Obama wanted to force racial integration in nice neighborhoods, which white people in nice neighborhoods don’t oppose. Nobody is trying to block blacks from buying homes in Woodbury or Wayzata, for example. People in nice neighborhoods oppose forced class integration, because of the behavioral differences between classes
Florence King, a writer from the South, explained how Southern ladies distinguish classes:
If you live in a run-down little house with a beat-up car in the front yard but the car runs, you’re ordinary.
If you live in a run-down little house with a beat-up car in the front yard but the car doesn’t run, you’re common.
If you live in a run-down little house with pieces of a car in the front yard, you’re trash.
That’s why people in nice neighborhoods oppose AFFH. It has nothing to do with race. We don’t want trash – of any race – moving into the neighborhoods we worked so hard to reach.
But remember – all “racial conflict” is really class conflict being re-painted with “race” to make it socially acceptable on the left.
