    The goal of "fair housing" would seem to be quite straightforward. As
    spelled out in the Fair Housing Act of 1968 — and found in realtors’ offices across the country — it precludes "discrimination in the sale,
    rental and financing of dwellings … based on race, color, national
    origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual
    orientation), familial status, and disability." In other words, those
    who can afford to rent or buy should not be precluded from doing so for
    reasons having nothing to do with the ability to pay.

    But for the Biden administration’s Department of Housing and Urban Development, fair housing is more — much more. In proposed regulations
    that would touch any jurisdiction that accepts any sort of HUD funding,
    fair housing must mean a plan to "promote equity in their communities,
    decrease segregation, and increase access to opportunity and community
    assets for people of color and other underserved communities."


    Racism wouldn't be a problem in this country if white liberal democrats
    didn't keep trying to pretend it's still a problem.

    Biden's proposed regulations do nothing. The problems he wants to
    correct don't exist.

    There is no segregation, there are no underserved communities, and
    black people have access to as many opportunities as white people.
