They Tell Lies But Know The Truth…FHA Created All The Poverty, Miseducation, Unemployment , etc. Experienced By Public Housing Residents, says the Economic Policy Institute (http://n.pr/1IMV4Fy)
According to the Economic Policy Institute, Nixon’s Secretary of Housing & Urban Development, George Romney, said that “the federal government has created a white noose around African-American communities in urban areas, and it was the federal government’s obligation to untie that noose.”
He was speaking of the fact that the FHA had purposefully created segregated public housing projects like Freddie Gray’s’ Gilmore Homes in Baltimore and where I was raised, Barry Farms, in Washington, DC (haven’t you ever wondered why there were no or not a significant number of whites in public housing…no where in the U.S.?). Though Romney implemented programs to force the projects to desegregate, Nixon got rid of him.
We the people may not know this history, but politicians know the federal government created these segregated Black public housing projects which would render its residents indegent for generations…well into the 21st century…2015 and beyond. And, they know the federal government is obligated to correct the situation. But as long as we, African Americans, in particular don’t know the history, it’s easy for the arrogant politicians to maliciously ‘blame the victim’ while continuing to pretend compensation isn’t due.
CLASS ACTION SUITE TIME…FOR REAL, FOR REAL.
