There Goes the Neighborhood
The liberal elite is gifted at using black skin to advance its figureheads, but that doesn’t mean moonbats want any darkies living in their neighborhood:
ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) – As more and more black renters began moving into this mostly white San Francisco Bay Area suburb a few years ago, neighbors started complaining about loud parties, mean pit bulls, blaring car radios, prostitution, drug dealing and muggings of schoolchildren.
In 2006, as the influx reached its peak, the police department formed a special crime-fighting unit to deal with the complaints, and authorities began cracking down on tenants in federally subsidized housing.
Now that police unit is the focus of lawsuits by black families who allege the city of 100,000 is orchestrating a campaign to drive them out.
Ghetto denizens are pouring into suburbs like Antioch courtesy of Big Government:
An increasing number of poor families receiving federal rental assistance have been moving here in recent years, partly because of the housing crisis. A growing number of landlords were seeking a guaranteed source of revenue in a city hard-hit by foreclosures. They began offering their Antioch homes to low-income tenants in the HUD Section 8 housing program, which pays about two-thirds of every tenant’s rent.
For liberals, blacks are a special class never subject to judgment, so long as they vote Democrat, keep their numbers under control with abortion, and live somewhere else. In contrast, allegedly racist conservatives just want everyone to take responsibility for their behavior. They can live wherever they can afford to live — on their own dime.
