Portland helps buy homes for people but only if they're black



Some black people were forced to move out of Portland Oregon because of the construction of a highway which razed homes and gentrification which raised housing prices beyond their means. Only 6% of Portland is black, a statistic that the city finds unacceptable. (What is the right percentage? The masterminds haven't told us.)

So Portland created a $20 million dollar program to pay for "down payment assistance" for black people who wanted to move back to Oregon. The criteria for applying was that you had to have resided in Portland's historically black neighborhoods, so effectively this program is practically only available to black people.

Can you imagine the uproar if Oregon offered to pay white people to move to Oregon? That would be racism. But $20 million targeted at black people, that's ok. That's redistribution of income. More importantly, that's racial justice.

But the program has some problems. For one thing, some residents don't want to move back.

Take Germaine Flentroy. Germaine's family was forced out of Portland due to higher housing prices, but for Germaine, Portland is no longer germane.

He says he no longer recognizes his former home because it has been invaded by white people.

"I don't feel welcome here. Back then, white people wouldn't come to this neighborhood. And all of a sudden you start seeing 'hipsters', and all of a sudden we started seeing community gardens, and I was like, what are these people doing, why are they so weird?"

The PBS reporter did not criticize this perspective, but can you imagine if a white person had said:

"I don't feel welcome here. Back then, black people wouldn't come to this neighborhood. And all of a sudden you start seeing 'hipsters', and all of a sudden we started seeing check cashing places and liquor stores, and I was like, what are these people doing, why are they so weird?"

The reaction of the PBS reporter would have been totally different. When blacks say they don't want to live with white people, that's accepted without comment. It's the approved form of racism.

In any event, the pay-black-people-to-buy-homes program hasn't worked out very well. The problem? Blacks don't have high enough income to afford the later payments on the home, even after Portland helps them out.

Perhaps Portland, which is eager to be involved in racial and social engineering, will consider requiring home builders to have two prices for homes--one for white people, and one for minorities, for half of whatever white people are being charged. That would be truly progressive, and we know no federal judge would strike such a law down, since it clearly disadvantages white people and is part of the approved form of reverse racism.

I never cease to be amazed at how the media, without shame or dismay, promotes reverse racism as a progressive policy agenda. And by the way, the PBS reporter happened to mention that there are similar programs in New York, San Francisco, and other cities across America. How many Supreme Court justices do you think President Trump would have to appoint before the court would strike down such blatantly racist practices?

Really? Darlene to replace Roseanne


Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the character of "Darlene", the daughter character, which would exclude Roseanne.

Here's a thought experiment: what happens if you release criminals, a lot of them, from jail?
If you asked a liberal in California, they would tell you that these criminals were unjustly jailed in the first place (think racism on the part of liberal inner city judges, juries, and prosecutors) and that these unjustly imprisoned would return to become productive parts of society.

The National Guard deployment to the border is a sham


Remember when President Trump's supporters were outraged when Trump signed a budget which prevented him from building a border wall? Trump was so stung by the criticism that he decided to show he was tough on border security by sending the National Guard to the border. The only problem is, restrictions on the Guard has made their participation almost useless.

It always amazes me how when I read articles about people claiming asylum, their stories are almost identical: gangs threatened them in their home country!

Everyone had nearly identical stories as if they were coached, all repeating the same words they hoped would get them a free ticket into America.
