    In the last few years, New Deal era "redlining" has come to be seen as one of America's most horrific historic sins, on par with slavery, due to the profound research of America's foremost public intellectual, Genius T. Coates, who made FHA redlining central to his argument for massive reparations to blacks. Not surprisingly, there...

    Actually they do give a shit. Go to amren anytime...they say they want to live in separate zip codes from the Colored people and yet they get outraged when they hear that White doctors and laywers want to live in separate zip codes from White unwed mothers and meth addicts.

  • The effect on minority communities can be profound. Homeownership is a cornerstone of economic mobility, and without a stable group of homeowners, neighborhoods can be left vulnerable to blight and disrepair.

    But the primary result of higher economic mobility is that people with higher earnings potential will move the hell away instead of being part of the neighborhood’s stable group of homeowners.

    No, WNs hate it when high status whites and white-appearing middle easterners use dysfunctional and destructive blacks, mestizos and lower grade "Asians" as a tool to wreck the lives of ordinary whites. There's a difference.

    WNs also inherently hate high IQ and high social class Whites. They love to look down on Blacks and Mestizos while at the same time seething with envy at elite Whites.

    If you don't understand the interdependence of classes and occupations that goes to make up any people, or are unwilling to recognise yourself as part of your own, I doubt whether you actually possess high intelligence or are worthy to occupy a respectable position in society.

    Low IQ Whites were only necessary in the pre-information age. Back during the industrial age, and the agrarian age, low IQ prole Whites were needed to perform boring work. Increasingly, jobs done by the sub-100 IQ people are being automated out of existence. In my lifetime, I might even live to see people in the 100-115 range being made redundant.

    WNs hate it when high IQ and high social class Europeans want to also live separately from the low IQ and low social class Europeans.
     
    I don't think that is correct. I thought WNs hate it when high IQ and high social class Europeans want to force the low IQ and low social class Europeans to live with third worlders especially when it is done as some form of social posturing.

    I can’t speak for other people in my community, but personally I do not want to force prole Whites to live amongst anyone they don’t want to live amongst.

    "“Starbucks is aggressively pursuing bringing “opportunity youth” (unemployed and/or uneducated young people) into its employment ranks"

    One of the big reasons that people go to Starbucks is its pleasant atmosphere, and that includes the clean-cut, friendly people who usually work there.

    Starbucks baristas are usually nice and much brighter than you’d expect given the job (I think the complex set of orders selects for smarter people, though culture probably explains some of it too.), but I haven’t noticed the clean-cut thing all that much–lots of tattoos, for example.

    Interestingly the NYer of all places recently ran an article that was pretty honest about how black pols and preachers were instrumental in creating the draconian drug laws of the 1970s.

    The counter-culture itself was also partly to blame. “The Pusher” (1968) was by the same people who brought us “Magic Carpet Ride:”

    Well Lord if I were the president of this land
    You know I’d declare total war on the pusherman

    I’d cut him if he stands and I shoot him if he’d run
    And I’d kill him with my bible and my razor and my gun

    Who’d have guessed that Nixon was listening?

    "One of the big reasons that people go to Starbucks is its pleasant atmosphere, and that includes the clean-cut, friendly people who usually work there."

    The Starbucks store closest to me started to hire heavily tattooed people and greasy looking hipsters, so I took to frequenting the Starbucks outlet at the local Target or just grabbing coffee at Dunkin Donuts, both of which still hire normal people.

    Funny that it’s just the opposite where I am. Dunks franchises around here are heavily staffed by the ESL crowd, mostly Brazilians, with hijab wearers also disproportionately represented. Starbucks are mostly 20- or 30- something whites, tattooed but clean.

    Prediction: ghetto Starbucks will lose a dozen sugar packets and a pint of half&half for every cup of coffee they sell.

    Have any of you ever been to a Starbucks?

    I’m there every morning. NOBODY feels more entitled to taking stuff than the SWPL Starbucks patron. I constantly see hausfraus filling Junior’s bottle out of the whole milk carafes, pocketing 20 raw sugars or Splendas, taking handfuls of napkins and straws, swiping the sections they want out of the newspapers in the racks, etc.

    After spending $5.75 on a half-caf, extra skinny soy macchiato, they feel entitled to anything that’s not nailed down. Absent getting robbed on a regular basis, I don’t see a hood Starbucks being any worse.

    I’m a free rider on their business plan. I get a medium dark roast in my own Starbucks cup, so I get a discount, and the bottom line is that it’s cheaper than the same order at the local Dunkin’ Donuts. With the Starbucks gold card, all refills are free. I use their electricity and wifi. Every 12th drink is free, and, as a well-regarded regular, the baristas constantly refrain from even charging me for the first coffee.

    And when my $2.05 coffees earn me a free drink, it’s a $6.75 venti quad mocha.

    "Starbucks is aggressively pursuing bringing “opportunity youth” (unemployed and/or uneducated young people) into its employment ranks and from there into its college program, and that in conjunction with this it is opening stores in previously neglected neighborhoods, including Ferguson, Missouri’s economically-challenged West Florissant neighborhood as well as Chicago’s South Side, Jamaica, Queens (NY), and other economically distressed neighborhoods across the U.S., at the same time committing to increasing local employment in these areas specifically..."

    from Forbes Oct. 24, 2015.

    I’m typing this while sitting at the counter of a Starbucks in a SWPL town, and I count 3 blacks and 2 Asians using the free wifi. I believe if some of their racial cohort came in to cause trouble, they’d be the first to react, as they don’t want any of their cultural kin shitting where they eat.

    In hindsight, Newark’s white neighborhoods didn’t do so well either…

  • Don’t really understand the whole last millennium concept of banking at a physical location. I have banked with USAA since the late 1990s and have had about 2 instances where I really would have liked a physical bank in order to obtain a cashiers check day of. As for applying for a loan, you have been able to do that online at hundreds of places for over a decade. Don’t have internet, your library does.

    "And here’s the moral passion play behind “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”. More than putting the screws to banks, redlining is meant as a hairshirt for middle class whites in officially unintegrated neighborhoods, i.e., anything more than 50% white (per AFFH standards). Our elites’ moral argument for ghettoizing stable neighborhoods (?)"
     
    There is a lot of money to be made in building new housing developments. When gov't ruins the current neighborhoods, people with money will leave and buy a new house in a new development. These new developments have "good schools" and are "safe". Developers leave large tracts zoned for multifamily units. Once they have made their money selling all the single family units, and the schools are established, etc., then they build the apartment complexes. Rinse, repeat.

    One lucky zip code 77025, had it horrible apartment complex burn down. Then the neighborhood association bought the land and built a library, senior center and YMCA. The local school performance immediately jumped from 60% passing the state assessment to 89% passing. It continued climbing as the area private schools emptied out and settled around just over 92% passing.

    ” Once they have made their money selling all the single family units, and the schools are established, etc., then they build the apartment complexes. Rinse, repeat.”

    I know, I think of it as the “churn” – keeping responsible people moving, unstable, and unsettled. There’s lots of money in draining the remaining middle class’ wealth. And that wealth destruction would be reflected in higher GDP… cheers. Some of this perverse thinking/planning may have begun around the time GNP (better proxy for aggregate wealth) was switched to GDP, and citizens became referred to as consumers. Late 80′s / early 90′s maybe.

    I concur with SFG. Given two similar job candidates, employers are probably going to choose the candidate from the group with the better stereotypes. And here's my un-PC claim: that's a smart business strategy.

    A strong defense of lassaiz-faire capitalism is difficult when balanced with a need to advocate for racial equality.

    “A strong defense of lassaiz-faire capitalism is difficult when balanced with a need to advocate for racial equality.”

    I agree. My view is that instead of racial equality the goal should be to give ordinary working people of all races a decent chance to lead a good life.

    One way is to progressively tax the biggest spenders in society (ignoring inequalities of income and wealth), using the proceeds to subsidize the market wage of the less favorably endowed: https://goo.gl/Pe5YW6

    Another is to offer something like this: http://goo.gl/C4k2H7

The issues he primarily cares about are Israel, "immigration reform" (and we all know what that really means), and gay-rights,.....oh, and also in forcing governments to pay off their debts, as that's how he's made a lot of his money. So we could expect a President Rubio to push "comprehensive immigration reform", to continue the neo-con program of open-ended US military involvement in the middle-east, and to stand out of the way whenever the homosexual lobby wants to push thier latest proposal for gaying up America.

    By the way, someone should ask Rubio, who will undoubtedly get a lot of support from the FOX News demographic which is opposed to gay marriage, why he is now accepting millions of dollars from Paul Singer, who was instrumental in getting the New York state legislature to legalize gay-marriage. Something tells me that nobody at FOX news will ever ask him that.

    Human beings form into tribes and dislike people not in their tribe. If there's no racial difference, you still see rival playground cliques and so on. Look at the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry between white Midwesterners!

    So, yeah, the USA is racist. So is everyone else. It's human nature. What is unusual about the USA is the large number of people who seem to succeed in spite of natural human prejudice. This has plusses and minuses, as people here have documented (Jews supporting immigration, Chinese citizenship scams), but the USA is hardly the worst offender when it comes to prejudice.

    Because Rubio has been advocating for more H1bs for years. Not surprising, because Rubio takes lots of money from Silicon Valley oligarchs. Trump, within a few months of announcing his run, put out the toughest immigration platform we've seen since the 1950s.

    Trump is self-funding, so he can take the positions he desires. He also gone out of the way to oppose the H1b several times (Twitter, Nevada rally, Breitbart interview) in the last few days. He didn't have to, but he chose to. Most voters don't even know the H1b exists, so it's heartening that Trump would make an issue out of the H1b. It shows he's serious.

  • They say there was this redlining in the 30s and that prevented blacks from acquiring wealth and this has snowballed down through the generations. But that argument assumes inheritance plays a much bigger role than it does. In reality, most people don’t die with much of an estate, especially when split several ways. It’s a very skewed distribution with the vast majority of people of whatever race getting nothing to modest payouts, and then a right tail of huge inheritances.

    The real reason blacks don’t have any wealth is because they don’t save money. There is a lot of data on this. Even controlling for income, blacks tend to have little in savings and most of their “net worth” tied up in consumption goods, i.e., their highly leveraged house and car. I would like to see a study on car value to income ratio by race.

    You notice how Starbucks businesses model did not get its start in poor neighborhoods or by employing “opportunity youth” because there is no way to make money that way. They needed to first be successful, then they could hire these folks. They didn’t actually build success that way.

    Nope, I'm gonna disagree. (No personal animus intended; I like your stuff overall. ;) )

    First of all, it may be good sense to discriminate, whatever your personal biases or lack of them, if your customers want you to, particularly if your service is 'politically coded' in some fashion. I'm sure Southern restaurants in Jim Crow days were able to charge higher prices to whites who wanted to avoid dining with blacks, and whites were happy to pay them. I've read on other boards of people who worked to find a job where they didn't have to work with Jews (and probably had to accept a lower salary or less favorable terms to do so, since they had to look around). Look on the other side--Starbucks no doubt thought it was going to pick up lots of SWPL customers with its silly 'RaceTogether' initiative, and companies were jumping on the bandwagon to give domestic-partner benefits even if they didn't have a lot of gay employees, as long as their customers leaned to the left.

    Second, as any HBDer will tell you, the races, etc. are different. You really think black and white employees have the same mean absentee rates, etc. ? (I think Steve dug up an example of a lender who found that Chinese-Americans were *more* likely to repay their loans.) If discrimination is rational, it will even work against law-abiding, hardworking black employees (and I know several), because it's not worth taking the risk. Even look at women and men--refusing to hire women will save you a lot of money on employees who take time off to get pregnant, etc.

    Third, in an ideal market, sure. But usually you have oligopolies after a few decades (look at operating systems, which didn't even exist 40 years ago), and when you're big, you can afford to be inefficient. We hear all the time of CEOs, etc. giving important jobs to relatives and personal cronies, rather than doing an extended search for the best person. Sure this hurts the company, but if it's big enough and there are few enough competitors, it will survive--the head of Coke could hire only his relatives for C-level positions, and Coke might lose ground to Pepsi, but it wouldn't go out of business.

    I’m sure Southern restaurants in Jim Crow days were able to charge higher prices to whites who wanted to avoid dining with blacks, and whites were happy to pay them.

    Jim Crow required segregation.

    No one was allowed to have a restaurant that served blacks and whites together.

    Jim Crow violated the right to free association.

    Likewise, anti discrimination laws violate the right to free association.

    The market should decide.

    I do think that the government should not be allowed to discriminate, but private individuals and companies should be able to discriminate.

    And here's the moral passion play behind "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing". More than putting the screws to banks, redlining is meant as a hairshirt for middle class whites in officially unintegrated neighborhoods, i.e., anything more than 50% white (per AFFH standards).

    There is a lot of money to be made in building new housing developments. When gov’t ruins the current neighborhoods, people with money will leave and buy a new house in a new development. These new developments have “good schools” and are “safe”. Developers leave large tracts zoned for multifamily units. Once they have made their money selling all the single family units, and the schools are established, etc., then they build the apartment complexes. Rinse, repeat.

    One lucky zip code 77025, had it horrible apartment complex burn down. Then the neighborhood association bought the land and built a library, senior center and YMCA. The local school performance immediately jumped from 60% passing the state assessment to 89% passing. It continued climbing as the area private schools emptied out and settled around just over 92% passing.

    I know, I think of it as the "churn" - keeping responsible people moving, unstable, and unsettled. There's lots of money in draining the remaining middle class' wealth. And that wealth destruction would be reflected in higher GDP... cheers. Some of this perverse thinking/planning may have begun around the time GNP (better proxy for aggregate wealth) was switched to GDP, and citizens became referred to as consumers.

    “The Ongs, who came here from the Philippines in 2004, got caught up in the housing frenzy two years later. They bought a $680,000 house in Pomona and paid $4,400 a month. The house fetched $330,000 when they lost it in a short sale in 2012.”

    Yes, they got “caught up”.

    Well their buying their second: You know, the are “in the vanguard”:

    “Today, the Azusa couple are in the vanguard of borrowers taking advantage of a new loan that helps lower-income borrowers build equity fast — and protects them against any future crash in values.”

    “All with no down payment, no closing costs and no mortgage insurance. The Ongs’ real estate agent, Jill Medley, called it “the best loan in the history of real estate.”

    More recklessness:

    “BBVA Compass announced the launch of a new program, called Home Ownership Made Easier or HOME for short, designed to help low- and moderate-income borrowers become homeowners by helping to overcome one of the “most significant barriers” to homeownership, the down payment.

    In the HOME program, qualifying borrowers will be eligible to finance 100% of the home’s value. In addition to offering 100% LTV loans, BBVA will also contribute up to $4,500 toward “certain closing costs” associated with obtaining a home loan.”

    Capitalism is the greatest enemy of racial discrimination in history. Why so? Because profit-making joint-stock corporations that compete for capital cannot afford to discriminate. Those that do to any significant degree -- whether positively or negatively -- will either go out of business or be taken over by their competitors.

    This basic truth needs to be more forcefully asserted in the face of misguided efforts like the current one of the Obama administration.

    I agree. My view is that instead of racial equality the goal should be to give ordinary working people of all races a decent chance to lead a good life.

    One way is to progressively tax the biggest spenders in society (ignoring inequalities of income and wealth), using the proceeds to subsidize the market wage of the less favorably endowed: https://goo.gl/Pe5YW6

    Another is to offer something like this: http://goo.gl/C4k2H7

    I’ll actually agree with you, but here’s the thing: lots of countries are even *more* racist. Particularly non-white countries. Just try being a Korean in Japan. I don’t see the Chinese taking in a million immigrants every time there’s a typhoon in Southeast Asia.

    Human beings form into tribes and dislike people not in their tribe. If there’s no racial difference, you still see rival playground cliques and so on. Look at the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry between white Midwesterners!

    So, yeah, the USA is racist. So is everyone else. It’s human nature. What is unusual about the USA is the large number of people who seem to succeed in spite of natural human prejudice. This has plusses and minuses, as people here have documented (Jews supporting immigration, Chinese citizenship scams), but the USA is hardly the worst offender when it comes to prejudice.

    Yes, and they get lectured about all the money left on the table; they are not making as much coin as they should, so the federal gov't is going to come in and force them to make more good loans so they will make even more money. It is like there are a bunch of people clamoring to make a mortgage payment, but they are denied that thrill by evil bankers. Where is that money now? Is it accumulating in a savings account? Under the mattress? Burned in the fire place? Rolled up and used as toilet paper? Is the opportunity cost of that money higher as a mortgage vs. current consumption? History tells us no, but I guess that doesn't matter.

    In New Jersey, Costco puts stores in “less-affluent” areas such as Hackensack, Clifton, Union, and North Plainfield. Then again, that is due to easy highway access rather than being in a bad neighborhood per se.

    Exactly who are these other banks that have found and served the borrowers in those neighborhoods? And do these banks profit from such loans? I would assume if those banks were profiting from those loans, other banks would then enter the market to compete for such loans.

    You notice how Starbucks businesses model did not get its start in poor neighborhoods or by employing "opportunity youth" because there is no way to make money that way. They needed to first be successful, then they could hire these folks. They didn't actually build success that way.

    The Starbucks store closest to me started to hire heavily tattooed people and greasy looking hipsters, so I took to frequenting the Starbucks outlet at the local Target or just grabbing coffee at Dunkin Donuts, both of which still hire normal people.

    Starbucks baristas are usually nice and much brighter than you'd expect given the job (I think the complex set of orders selects for smarter people, though culture probably explains some of it too.), but I haven't noticed the clean-cut thing all that much--lots of tattoos, for example.

    There is a lot of money to be made in building new housing developments. When gov't ruins the current neighborhoods, people with money will leave and buy a new house in a new development. These new developments have "good schools" and are "safe". Developers leave large tracts zoned for multifamily units. Once they have made their money selling all the single family units, and the schools are established, etc., then they build the apartment complexes. Rinse, repeat.

    One lucky zip code 77025, had it horrible apartment complex burn down. Then the neighborhood association bought the land and built a library, senior center and YMCA. The local school performance immediately jumped from 60% passing the state assessment to 89% passing. It continued climbing as the area private schools emptied out and settled around just over 92% passing.

    Why do I care if some guy I don’t know calls me names? Racist? Sorry not Black. Its well known that Blacks hate hate hate Whites, particularly high iq Whites. Anti Semitism among Blacks was-is so high there were Black Harlem Nazis and Black nationalists like Farrakhan find Hitler the only White guy they like.

    You are assuming I care about being called names. I find most Black people to be violent, cruel to animals, low of iq, a drain on society, and extremely to be around. Most.

    And I think you will find outside the gay-female ghettos most White men have a low tolerance for White baiting or Ghetto Black behavior. I object to the over 400 Black on Black murders in LA every year as I’m the taxpayer on the hook for the 25 million cost of each murder, perpatrated so some ghetto thug got laid that night.

    While the Harlem Renaissance produced at best fifth rate literature, epic underachievers Mexicans have better, mostly due to German exile B Traven, Black music from 1890 to 1980 was admirable and beautiful. What am I supposed to admire about Black people today? The baboonish gibberings of Kanye West or Maya Angelou? Rap? Grabbing genitals while shouting in what amounts to a minstrel show?

    Have any of you ever been to a Starbucks?

    I'm there every morning. NOBODY feels more entitled to taking stuff than the SWPL Starbucks patron. I constantly see hausfraus filling Junior's bottle out of the whole milk carafes, pocketing 20 raw sugars or Splendas, taking handfuls of napkins and straws, swiping the sections they want out of the newspapers in the racks, etc.

    After spending $5.75 on a half-caf, extra skinny soy macchiato, they feel entitled to anything that's not nailed down. Absent getting robbed on a regular basis, I don't see a hood Starbucks being any worse.

    I'm a free rider on their business plan. I get a medium dark roast in my own Starbucks cup, so I get a discount, and the bottom line is that it's cheaper than the same order at the local Dunkin' Donuts. With the Starbucks gold card, all refills are free. I use their electricity and wifi. Every 12th drink is free, and, as a well-regarded regular, the baristas constantly refrain from even charging me for the first coffee.

    And when my $2.05 coffees earn me a free drink, it's a $6.75 venti quad mocha.

    Funny how Trump pretends in a tweet to care about American workers today after throwing them under the bus on national TV Wednesday. And now I suppose we're supposed to believe that he's read his immigration plan. He obviously hadn't before.

    Why should I believe that Trump is any different from Rubio once he's used up patriotic Americans for advantage in the primary?

    Because Rubio has been advocating for more H1bs for years. Not surprising, because Rubio takes lots of money from Silicon Valley oligarchs. Trump, within a few months of announcing his run, put out the toughest immigration platform we’ve seen since the 1950s.

    Trump is self-funding, so he can take the positions he desires. He also gone out of the way to oppose the H1b several times (Twitter, Nevada rally, Breitbart interview) in the last few days. He didn’t have to, but he chose to. Most voters don’t even know the H1b exists, so it’s heartening that Trump would make an issue out of the H1b. It shows he’s serious.

    Echoing your assessment of Rubio, Paul Singer announced yesterday that he is throwing his support behind Rubio. Singer is a billionaire hedgefund manager and prominent bundler for Republican candidates. The issues he primarily cares about are Israel, "immigration reform" (and we all know what that really means), and gay-rights,.....oh, and also in forcing governments to pay off their debts, as that's how he's made a lot of his money. So we could expect a President Rubio to push "comprehensive immigration reform", to continue the neo-con program of open-ended US military involvement in the middle-east, and to stand out of the way whenever the homosexual lobby wants to push thier latest proposal for gaying up America.

    By the way, someone should ask Rubio, who will undoubtedly get a lot of support from the FOX News demographic which is opposed to gay marriage, why he is now accepting millions of dollars from Paul Singer, who was instrumental in getting the New York state legislature to legalize gay-marriage. Something tells me that nobody at FOX news will ever ask him that.
