California reparations panel wants to
give state agency veto power over local
real estate decisions

Original Article

Posted By: Beardo, 5/15/2023 4:27:21 PM

California's reparations task force is calling for the state legislature to require all cities and counties with allegedly segregated neighborhoods to submit all their real estate ordinances to a state agency for approval based on whether they maintain or lessen "residential racial segregation." (snip) The recommendations include several proposals meant to address "housing segregation" and "unjust property takings" that contributed to alleged systemic racism against Black Californians. Among the most controversial of the housing proposals is one that would seemingly hand over control of local land use decisions to a state agency that would approve ordinances based on whether they maintain or decrease segregation.

According to the Fair Housing Act, it's illegal to keep people out of your neighborhood based upon their race. Someone should already be doing this.

As there are at least 19:measures of racial segregation…it seems that all communities would fail one or more no matter how homogenous they are

This so bogus. I was a real estate agent in Califfornia. many years ago. There are federal and California state laws against discrimination in housing. Have been on the books for decades. This very black “commission” is operating from a warehouse of ignorance, just fishing around for another scab to pick, and should be disbanded. It was a bad idea and was bound to come up empty. A Newsom fail.

# 3 - Not sure where you live but I've lived in integrated neighborhoods most of my life. I'm from the south. Now I didn't live in houses that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars but even those neighborhoods were integrated. The catch is level of income. No one wants low income housing in their neighborhood. That is a problem.

From the CA DRE: Prohibitions on Housing Discrimination Many California laws relate to prohibiting discriminatory housing practices, among them the three primary laws discussed below: 1) the Unruh Civil Rights Act; 2) the Fair Employment and Housing Act; and 3) the Holden Act. Additionally, portions of the Real Estate Law identify prohibited practices. Though not discussed in this advisory, federal anti-discrimination laws also prohibit discriminatory housing practices. Ignorance can be fixed; stupid is forever.

From Wikipedia: California has 2.3 million African Americans as of 2010, the largest population of black or African Americans of the Western U.S states,[55] and the 5th largest black population in the United States. Cities that have the largest share of African Americans and have historically been black cultural centers include (11 largest in the state): Compton, Inglewood, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Richmond, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Vallejo. Compton has 95,740 residents per 2020 census, and 24,342 are African-American (67,791 are Hispanic). Los Angeles has 3,898,474 residents and African-Americans are 8.3% or 323,596

The housing situation is based on income or lack thereof. A huge percentage of one race's population is on the dole and can't afford better housing. If they decided to get jobs they could afford better housing..

My small city in North Georgia is overrun with Hispanics here working in the carpet mills. Mostly good people but they despise blacks. They consider them worthless and criminal and lazy. That may change in the future when they decide that it’s easier to go the welfare route. Like the blacks but for now they are hard working, entrepreneurial people. We shall see. The Dems think that they will get on the government teat and vote for them forever. I am not so sure. We have used a (legal) Guatemalan family to clean our house once a week and the despise Joe Biden. They spent thousands to come here legally and resent the incompetent old fool for opening the border.

President Trump endorsed Daniel Cameron in the Republican primary for the Kentucky governor’s race. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Ted Cruz, Mike Pompeo and Vivek Ramaswamy endorsed candidate Kelly Craft. Cameron won, Craft came in third. Kelly Craft is a big donor to the establishment Republican Party, hence all of the major donor-fueled Republican candidates supported her. Mrs. Craft outspent her opponents more than 10:1 spending more than $8.1 million, while the MAGA candidate Daniel Cameron spent just over $771 thousand and had the full support of President Donald Trump. Does this sound like a familiar pattern?

Sixty-seven congregations in Arkansas have officially disaffiliated from the United Methodist Church, being part of a wave of departures driven largely by the mainline Protestant denomination’s ongoing debate over LGBT issues.

Nevertheless, many theologically progressive leaders within the UMC have actively refused to follow or enforce these rules, prompting many theological conservatives to seek dismissal.

The report of Special Counsel John H. Durham into the origins of the “Russia collusion” investigation refutes the claims of an earlier Inspector General’s report that Democrats cited to defend the FBI and the probe itself. In late 2019, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released the report of his investigation into the FBI’s “Russia collusion” probe. While Horowitz found there had been “serious performance failures,” he found no evidence of “intentional misconduct.” More broadly, he found that while the conduct of the probe — including fraudulent warrant applications — had been wrong, the investigation was opened for good reasons.

The trio left the event in an SUV around 10 p.m., and were immediately followed by around 12 paparazzi, we’re told. They eventually decided to ditch their original vehicle and jump into a yellow cab in hopes of evading photogs, a source claims.
