The Supremes’ Other Terrible Ruling: “Desegregating” Nice Neighborhoods Into Ghetto

Lost in the outrage after the irresponsible Supreme Court decrees imposing homosexual marriage on the states and rescuing ObamaCare was a comparably tyrannical ruling issued last Thursday that will facilitate Obama’s campaign to spread the ghetto into nice neighborhoods:

In a 5-4 ruling, the court said certain housing policies that put minorities at a disadvantage, even if they aren’t expressly intended to discriminate, can be challenged in court.

The court sided with a community organization alleging that Texas’ housing department had improperly clustered Section 8 housing in low-income, high-crime areas — essentially preserving the segregation that federal housing law was designed to end.

Texas had argued that the lawsuit was invalid, and the question before the high court was whether the Fair Housing Act — a law intended to outlaw racial discrimination in housing — allows people to sue over practices that might not be explicitly discriminatory, but end up hurting minorities disproportionately.

You have worked hard so as to be able to live in a nice neighborhood where you can raise your kids in safety, and you don’t want some Section 8 crack house opening up across the street? Then you’re a racist.

Most Americans are not on board with the Obama’s use of federal coercion to spread the ghetto to every corner of the country. But apparently we don’t have much of a say at this point.
