These “mandates” are designed to be socially and economically disruptive. “Hoods” at least in Chicago and other major urban areas traditionally have been evolved into economic zones that catered to a certain income level & business infrastructure created to service that targeted market. As someone who experienced forced school busing in the 1960s and witnessed first hand the glaring failure it was on all levels, I harbor a dim view of these “FAIR HOUSING” demands rolling out from HUD. In my view the directives are woefully ignorant of the ancillary impacts in policing and education overhauls not to mention housing value impacts. I have seen in my life first hand forced immigrations into wealthy areas by lower income people create rising crime issues, a fact here in Chicago region highlighted by Section 8 housing impacts in those areas. Some may see these observations as racist, but with millions of undocumented unvaccinated immigrants flooding our country because of what I feel is a massive dereliction of duty in regards to border protections it absolutely bears mentioning. And I am NOT a racist but rather a prudent realist infused with experience this life
