San Mateo is a lovely suburban city of 104,000 between San Francisco and Palo Alto, with a median household income of $115,000. From the New York Times opinion section:

The Black Lives Next Door

A new generation of activists is trying to figure out where to concentrate its efforts. Residential desegregation is the final frontier.

By Richard Rothstein
Mr. Rothstein is the author of “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.”

Aug. 14, 2020

Last year in San Mateo, Calif.,…

Black Lives Matter protests have laid a foundation for real change. But in their aftermath, activists in San Mateo and similar communities mostly lack a continuing program to tackle the comprehensive racial inequality that allows abusive police practices to flourish. …

San Mateo is a segregated Silicon Valley city. Ms. Heath observes that there are no Black families in her Hillsdale neighborhood. San Mateo’s few remaining African-Americans mostly live in another neighborhood, where they have long been concentrated. One percent of Hillsdale High School students are Black.

So that means it’s like … 99 percent white!

So, San Mateo High School is like all white? Well, not exactly:

Well, actually, it’s more complicated than that. Even though this NYT essay only mentions whites and blacks, there are other races in San Mateo. According to the Census Bureau:

It turns out that San Mateo is only 43.1% non-Hispanic white.

That raises the question of: how did all those non-whites move to San Mateo despite restrictive covenants and redlining? Well, it turns out — crazy as it sounds — that there haven’t been restrictive covenants for over 70 years and redlining for over 50 years. Moreover, if you read between the lines, you’ll notice that a lot has changed over the last half century, even though you mostly just read in the newspapers about late-breaking Emmett Till news.

Ms. Heath says she would like to live in a more diverse neighborhood. The way to do that, she says, is to insist that the City Council provide more affordable housing — subsidized units for low-income families — in her neighborhood. That would be a step forward, but most African-Americans are not poor; working- and middle-class Black families whose incomes are too high to qualify for existing subsidies were also excluded from neighborhoods like Hillside because of their race.

Effective strategies to redress segregation in all its forms would become clearer if activists in San Mateo and elsewhere did deep research into how their communities’ racial boundaries were established.

In San Mateo, they would learn that builders constructed the residential Hillsdale neighborhood for whites only in the mid-20th century. Public records reveal that the 1941 deed to Sophia Heath’s family home says, “No persons other than members of the Caucasian or White race shall be permitted to occupy any portion of said property, other than as domestics in the employ of the occupants of the premises.”

The racial restriction was signed by officers of the American Trust Company, which financed its construction. David D. Bohannon, a developer who built the largest share of homes in Hillsdale, signed similar deed requirements for racial exclusion. Although the whites-only clauses are no longer enforceable

And haven’t been since the late 1940s …

, they remain in the deeds of Hillsdale homeowners.

These clauses are like the racist objects in the attic that haunt the nightmares of New York Times subscribers. You can just sense their emanations of evil.

… The Bohannon company, Fox & Carskadon and the American Trust Company could not have segregated Hillsdale without the support of government agencies. In fact, in some cases, federal agencies required builders like Mr. Bohannon to insert the racial clause in deeds. In our own time, the City of San Mateo continues to perpetuate the segregation of many of its white neighborhoods by prohibiting construction of anything but single-family homes — no townhouses, duplexes or apartments affordable to teachers, firefighters, nurses, hotel and restaurant workers, and others who serve the community but cannot afford to live in it.

The American Trust Company and Wells Fargo merged in 1960. Coldwell Banker acquired Fox & Carskadon in 1995. Perhaps Sophia Heath’s fellow young activists and their adult compatriots might embark on a campaign to persuade the Bohannon company, Coldwell Banker and Wells Fargo to face up to their considerable responsibility for the racial segregation and lack of opportunity for Black families that characterize San Mateo.

A local civil rights movement can insist that these businesses make substantial contributions to a fund that subsidizes African-Americans to purchase Hillsdale homes that would have been affordable when these institutions excluded Black home buyers but no longer are.

Token contributions will do little. The fund will have to be substantial. Fox & Carskadon advertised its Hillside houses for $5,450, about $100,000 in current dollars. But today those homes sell for about $1.5 million, sometimes more. Shouldn’t Bohannon, Coldwell Banker and Wells Fargo find the funds to enable African-Americans who qualify for a mortgage on a $100,000 property to purchase Hillsdale houses worth $1.5 million?

Right, Black people morally deserve to buy $1.5 million houses in San Mateo for only $100,000.

You see, if there hadn’t been a restrictive covenant enforceable until the late 1940s, then lots and lots of of great-grandparents of today’s blacks would have bought houses in San Mateo, hung on to them for over 70 years, kept them in perfect condition, not caused any problems with the property value, and bequeathed them free and clear to today’s blacks.

That’s just how the world works.

Seriously, if you wonder why the Diversity Inclusion Equity (DIE) people switched their buzzword from equality to equity, it’s because they want to take your equity in your house.

Because if you don't know, now you f**king do. So, do something about it. ... You're part of that racist gentrification. So how are you going to fix it?

    How should the white residents fix it?
    1) Separate nations?
    2) Everyone return to their nations of their distant heritage?
    3) Buy more guns and ammo to deal with the mob when they stop asking?

    , @Dumbo
    @Buzz Mohawk

    Sort of. What inflates the prices currently is mostly mass immigration, which increase demand and reduce supply, and construction limitations plus lots of people wanting to live in a nice sunny climate. Also things such as "affordable housing" and "section 8" actually may increase prices as people want to move away from "bad neighborhoods", and that increases the price of the houses in the increasingly less numerous "good neighborhoods", where tend to protect themselves, such as Malibu. There's no "affordable housing" in Malibu... And if there ever is, it will be a scam.

    But there's nothing "natural" about those high prices. They have been created by policies and demographic movements that severely changed California. Houses were not expensive there in the 50s and 60s. So to talk about "free market" and "prices find their own level" is another naiveté.

    Now notice that they are trying to create Rent Control laws for all of California, and to prohibit eviction even for the worse tenants, for any reason... It's another attempt at the planned destruction of the middle class, and to make it impossible except for the very rich to own houses.

    It's a function of restricted supply, the land in the city is underdeveloped, and the land outside the city is simply undeveloped. Restrict the amount of steel that is allowed to be produced and the price will "find its own level," just one artificially high.

    I guess government policies never, ever affect any price of anything?

    For example, 50 years of mostly uncontrolled migration in connection with NIMBY rich coastal libtards had zero, nada, zilch effect on California house prices. House prices just found their own level, with no thumb of any kind on the scale.

    No, wrong. Hillsdale is not at all like Hillsborough. (Hillsborough, btw, is west of San Mateo and Burlingame.) It's not hilly; nowhere does it even come close to bordering Hillsborough. Frankly, it's a quite unimpressive run-of-the-mill neighborhood centered by a large, and now old, collection of apartment buildings. No doubt, at the time of its construction, it was seen as "affordable housing," whether or not such a term was used then.

    The price of real estate in large cities has become disconnected from the quality of the local schools or the level of city services. Thus, large cities have become areas where the rich, the young supported by their parents, and the poor live. The rich and young do not care about public schools or city services and the poor will live with what they get.

    If you have a steady job with reasonably good pay, you can easily buy a house with virtually no money down. You can take out a second mortgage to cover the down-payment. Get an 80/20 mortgage and you can avoid PMI. At least for a non-Jumbo mortgage.

    Most people who buy homes have all the furniture etc they need. They can buy the fridge washer dryer with a credit card not cash. Very few homes need completely new landscaping. If it’s new, the builder puts in lawn bushes the classic tree in the front yard and driveway. If it’s not new, previous homeowners have landscaped. Many homeowners leave some or all window treatments when they sell.

    At any rate, window treatments appliances all those things don’t need cash.

    Usually homes for sale have been fixed up a bit with fresh paint at least and the standard new granite or quartz kitchen countertops and refacing the cabinets.

  22. Ms. Heath says she would like to live in a more diverse neighborhood. The way to do that, she says, is to insist that the City Council provide more affordable housing — subsidized units for low-income families — in her neighborhood.

    As stated before, many times, diverse does not mean “composed of many different types.” Nope, diverse means more negroes.

    Seriously, I don’t think many of the spokes monk, I meant peeps lack an understanding of what the words actually mean. That 85 IQ supplies all sorts of social skills at the expense of abstraction, deductive reasoning and inference. Instead, nouns that require adjectives are hijacked to mean one particular thing. Bad attitude becomes just attitude – obliterating the use of this word for any other purpose. In a similar way of simplifying meaning to serve only one purpose, diversity has come to mean more negroes.

    These clauses are like the racist objects in the attic that haunt the nightmares of New York Times subscribers. You can just sense their emanations of evil.

    These objects are the real estate equivalenty of Emmett Till, namely another cudgel to use on whites whether it makes sense or not, and usually not.

    Right, Black people morally deserve to buy $1.5 million houses in San Mateo for only $100,000.

    Section 8 Luxury Mansions

  23. ‘Right, Black people morally deserve to buy $1.5 million houses in San Mateo for only $100,000…’

    Making it worse, my impression is that San Mateo was actually relatively cheap until some point in the last thirty years. I remember I used to think about moving there, circa 1990. It was kind of the working-class town of the Peninsula: partly Hispanic, fairly affordable, a really great sandwich shop with a daily $2.00 special…Menlo Park, it was not.

    So any absence of blacks owes little to any practices back in the 1940’s. There’s been lots of time to move in since — as the 57% percent non-white figure demonstrates.

    San Mateo was only ever, at most, half working class. Everything to the west of El Camino Real has always been solidly upper middle class and above, with the most expensive neighborhoods being adjacent to Hillsborough. Predictably, the further east you go, especially past the railroad tracks, the more vibrant the population gets.

    In most jurisdictions the physical deed transferring the property is a boilerplate document that is recorded in the office of a county clerk or registrar by a title insurance company.

You do not want to foul up what land is actually being sold. This is especially so if the plot is irregular rather than 4 corners of 90 degrees, as many are. While banks care a great deal about the credit worthy-ness of purchasers, nobody enforces such racial covenants.For 80 years. This article plays up the covenant without stating obviously most have either been totally unenforced by anyone or deleted by lawyers and title insurance companies became aware of them.

    You're probably right that some white and asian kids are going to private schools, and it's not valid to go by public highschool attendance, but it's still the case that San Mateo county is orthogonal to "the narrative":

    The kids and grand-kids of those evil red-liners can't afford to live there (unless inheriting the property) because the housing prices are driven up by:
    - poor / lowish skilled asian and latino immigrants who are willing to live at the multiple people per room density.
    - high skilled tech immigrants of all colors who live with apartment-mates at $2k/bedroom into their 30s and then buy >$1m places (with down payments from their parents).

    Blacks are such a small fraction of the population that they don't even factor into it.

    Like in most of the "achievement gap is proof or white racism against blacks" stories, the mid-20th century WASPs and Italians are SO white-supremacist and anti-black that they're replacing themselves with Chinese, Mexicans, Central Americans, Indians, Persians, Armenians and Russians.

    White oppression of blacks is just not the story from the pov of whites because they're not being pressured or displaced by blacks; they're being pressured by other groups.

    I cannot deny his point that blacks were kept out of housing due to their race in the past. But what is keeping blacks out of white neighborhoods today is lack of money. In fact today the trend is for gentrification which pushes blacks out and replaces them with whites.

    We are having a growing housing crisis as we continue to take in lots of new immigrants who push up the price of housing and cause further crowding as people who can’t afford market rate housing are forced to live with their parents or double up in some way. What does he have to say about that, the real source of the problem? Nothing.

    How anybody can claim to be concerned about the housing crisis in America and righting prior wrongs done to blacks can suggest giving $1.4 million to a few blacks so they can live in wildly overpriced Silicon Valley as a solution is beyond me.

    All this talk of seizing house equity reminds me of Britain’s odious and unlamented ‘New Labour’.
    The Blair/Brown regime was curiously Thatcherism, but with a few bits of fluff tacked on to the hard edges – and, of course The Economist magazine’s rabid mania for immigration. Maggie was definitely *NO* immigrationist.

    Anyhow, one of New Labours wizard wheezes was to milk as tax cows the equity built up in the UK’s over bloated housing market by the ‘cunning’ expedient of an extremely low threshold for Inheritance Tax. The truly rich – New Labours pet constituency – were, of course, exempted from paying a penny by their habitual use of ‘aggressive tax planning’ as the British accountancy jargon goes.
    Anyhow, the general mass of working stiffs, who sweated and slaved to pay off mortgages on their modest homes, weren’t as stupid as New Labour thought, and ejected the cnuts in 2010.

    Labour will be out of office for an awful long time.

    No doubt, they wanted to ‘redistribute’ the equity money to their beloved immigrants who are, of course, *MASSIVE* tax liabilities, despite the filthy lies The Economist peddles.

    Yes, exactly.

    The self declared 'progressives' of the Anglosphere, whose political and spiritual forebears were the slave dealers/owners and hangers on of New England (and England), have been around for quite awhile, and they called themselves by that term too.

    Below is an excerpt of a US book which went through multiple editions starting with it's initial publication in 1870, and was entitled One Hundred Years Progress of the United States. It goes into excruciating detail about production figures for a wide variety of material goods, comparing the numbers and vast increase from a hundred years prior (1770) with the then present of 1870.

    The book then flips things around and describes the glorious future which awaits the United States a hundred years in the future in the very 'progressive' year of 1970. This section of the book is entitled 'Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See'.

    North America is to be a single wholly integrated continental super state by then with a population in the hundreds of millions.

    And the future everyday US citizen is to be a wholly integrated 'composite' as well.. [China is emphasized as at the time they were fully expecting to soon be importing tens of millions of Chinese wage slaves (ie so called 'cheap labor') into the United States, to 'take the place' of the then still largely Anglo-Saxon working class population.]


    Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See (1870) - pg 515

    'The Coming Man'

    "But the future man of the American Republic will be a thoroughly composite being. It is not simply the union of the Mongolian and Caucasian types to which we are to look forward, but an agglomoration of almost all races and nationalities to make up the coming man. The old English of New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas, already blended with Huguenot, Norman French, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian blood, will receive from the Canadian French on the one side and the Hispano - Americans on the other, an accession of French, Spanish, and Portuguese blood not wholly free from an admixture in all degrees with the Northern Indian, the aztec, and the negro races, and these, with the blending in our own Southern and Southwestern States with the African stock, and the combination in the not distant future of Chinese, Japanese, Hindoo, Malay, and Polynesian, will give to the average American of a hundred years hence, a darker complexion and very different intellectual and moral characteristics from those which we possess today…”
     

    To cut to the chase, I think the desired characteristics for Euros is what the London Times in an 1851 editorial desired for a new Irish people, that of being 'more mixed. more docile,' and 'which can submit to a master'.

    With due respect, the context of the editorial those words appeared in makes it plain they were referencing the historic 'plantation' population of Northern Ireland, whom they hoped at the time to replace the whole of the Irish population with. I think it well illustrates what in reality is the utter contempt held by elites for 'immigrants' and the resulting 'mixed' populations whom they see as slaves. [See my archives for that particular editorial.]

    Proud Boys march devolves into violence as group clashes with counter-protestsers in Michigan

    Members of the right-wing group Proud Boys were met with angry counter demos at a march in Michigan, with the clashes between the two sides growing so heated that riot police stepped in to clear the area.

    Videos from the event show a large group of Proud Boys marching in Kalamazoo on Saturday, most holding American flags and being confronted by counter-protesters who tried to break up the march. As the two groups start mixing, several fistfights and pushing matches can be seen breaking out.

    The Proud Boys marchers were chanting “four more years” in support of President Trump right before things turned violent. The group has been designated a hate group by The Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Nonsense. What you think of as expensive is only a function of supply and demand in a competitive economy. What sounds expensive to you is average somewhere else.

    There is no "should" in pricing. It finds its own level. When your government forces your community to build "affordable housing" next door to you, you will understand. When your tax dollars are used to move people onto your street who in a natural economy would never be there, you will understand.

    Replies: @Jenner Ickham Errican, @Dumbo, @Anonymous, @anon, @jsm, @MBlanc46

    Sort of. What inflates the prices currently is mostly mass immigration, which increase demand and reduce supply, and construction limitations plus lots of people wanting to live in a nice sunny climate. Also things such as “affordable housing” and “section 8” actually may increase prices as people want to move away from “bad neighborhoods”, and that increases the price of the houses in the increasingly less numerous “good neighborhoods”, where tend to protect themselves, such as Malibu. There’s no “affordable housing” in Malibu… And if there ever is, it will be a scam.

    But there’s nothing “natural” about those high prices. They have been created by policies and demographic movements that severely changed California. Houses were not expensive there in the 50s and 60s. So to talk about “free market” and “prices find their own level” is another naiveté.

    Now notice that they are trying to create Rent Control laws for all of California, and to prohibit eviction even for the worse tenants, for any reason… It’s another attempt at the planned destruction of the middle class, and to make it impossible except for the very rich to own houses.

    You’re probably right that some white and asian kids are going to private schools, and it’s not valid to go by public highschool attendance, but it’s still the case that San Mateo county is orthogonal to “the narrative”:

    The kids and grand-kids of those evil red-liners can’t afford to live there (unless inheriting the property) because the housing prices are driven up by:
    – poor / lowish skilled asian and latino immigrants who are willing to live at the multiple people per room density.
    – high skilled tech immigrants of all colors who live with apartment-mates at $2k/bedroom into their 30s and then buy >$1m places (with down payments from their parents).

    Blacks are such a small fraction of the population that they don’t even factor into it.

    Like in most of the “achievement gap is proof or white racism against blacks” stories, the mid-20th century WASPs and Italians are SO white-supremacist and anti-black that they’re replacing themselves with Chinese, Mexicans, Central Americans, Indians, Persians, Armenians and Russians.

    White oppression of blacks is just not the story from the pov of whites because they’re not being pressured or displaced by blacks; they’re being pressured by other groups.
    White oppression of blacks is also not the story from the pov of blacks (what few there are) because American whites in the area are less anti-black than any of the other groups listed.

    African-Americans who qualify for a mortgage on a $100,000 property
     
    Does "qualify" include having $20,000 in the bank for a down payment for the $100,000 loan, plus another $10-20,000 in liquid cash to handle moving expenses and immediate purchases of furniture, window coverings, appliances, and exterior and landscaping services, if needed? This cash savings hurdle is the problem for most blacks I think, although from what I read in the New York Times every white couple (except for me and all my friends) apparently just got this cash from their money tree parents for free.

    I think that most blacks that "qualify" for a $100,000 home loan do so under some funky-assed jive-and-shuffle "opportunity" loan program that doesn't require that you have any cash.

    Cavett was a fool for inviting Brown and Maddox together, and Maddox was a fool for accepting. Of course, Cavett did it for the controversy and conflict and resulting high ratings.

During most of the quarter-century I lived in San Francisco, East Palo Alto was the worst ghetto in the Bay Area. If you know anything about the Bay Area, that’s saying a lot. It’s better now, since, like a lot of California ghettos, it’s been hispanicized into relative civilization. But she does have the option. And knows it.

    Well, you're certainly correct about the old EPA. But the homicide rate has dropped by over 95%, while other crimes declining by comparable amounts, so I'm not really sure that you really need to include the "relative" in your phrase...

    As for the NYT article, characterizing a 43% white/25% Hispanic city as entirely "non-diverse" is utterly ridiculous, and suggests that Rothstein assumes his readers are idiots or are just too lazy to find the data on the Internet.

    Rothstein is clearly up to his old tricks again. Back in the early 2000s, he had a regular weekly Education column at the NYT, and had been periodically sniping at my "English" initiatives in California and elsewhere, which greatly irritated me.

    In 2002, one of his columns included some particularly stupid and misleading remarks, so I submitted a Letter to the Editor. A Times staffer called me the next day and confirmed that my claims were correct. So my letter was published, and Rothstein was immediately fired:

  75. “Residential desegregation is the final frontier… By Richard Rothstein”

    White Gentiles like to live in places where their neighbours like them, and they like their neighbours.

    Jews like to self-segregate, but don’t seem to like their neighbours. This journalist, herself a rootless cosmopolitan type (born in Rome to a Swedish Lutheran mother and Scottish Presbyterian father), trod on the third rail. She was made redundant a couple of years later.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/commentators/christina-patterson/christina-patterson-the-limits-of-multi-culturalism-2036861.html

    I would like to teach some of my neighbours some manners. I would like, for example, to say to the man who drove the wrong way up a one-way street on Sunday night, while chatting away on his mobile phone, and to the man who nearly backed into me yesterday, while also chatting on his mobile phone, and to the man who drove into my friend’s van last week, while also chatting on his mobile phone, that while they clearly enjoy the art of conversation, it’s one that doesn’t combine brilliantly with driving.

    And I would like to say to the man who drove the wrong way into the car park at Morrisons, and then hooted me, and who parked in a mother and baby slot when he was on his own, and the car park was practically empty, that it seemed a rather aggressive thing to do, and also rather lazy, and I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn’t kill him to say “please” or “thank you”, and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

    And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it’s sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don’t care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they’re male) or covered up by wigs (if they’re female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn’t realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn’t realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn’t been chosen by God.

    Maybe if she dressed in accordance with the morals of that community she would be more welcome in the shops. A sleeveless low cut dress may be normal attire for her but to a Hasid she looks like a hooker.

    Hasidic shopkeepers are not supposed to carry out flirtatious conversations with females. Hasidim try to avoid physical contact with females who are not their wife.

    In short this woman is taking the valid practice of their religion by others as a personal insult, in typical female fashion. It's not about you, honey. The Hasidim have observed these strictures for many centuries and they are not going to change their ways just because gorgeous you moved into their neighborhood.

    Also, if instead of Hasidim she had moved into say a community of Somalis who likewise gave her the cold shoulder, she would be super duper understanding as a British Leftist.

For this option, continue bitching online along with snarky Steve. Option two is to say no, this is unacceptable. None of these people belong in Western countries, principles be damned.

    Yes, exactly.

    The self declared ‘progressives’ of the Anglosphere, whose political and spiritual forebears were the slave dealers/owners and hangers on of New England (and England), have been around for quite awhile, and they called themselves by that term too.

    Below is an excerpt of a US book which went through multiple editions starting with it’s initial publication in 1870, and was entitled One Hundred Years Progress of the United States. It goes into excruciating detail about production figures for a wide variety of material goods, comparing the numbers and vast increase from a hundred years prior (1770) with the then present of 1870.

    The book then flips things around and describes the glorious future which awaits the United States a hundred years in the future in the very ‘progressive’ year of 1970. This section of the book is entitled ‘Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See’.

    North America is to be a single wholly integrated continental super state by then with a population in the hundreds of millions.

    And the future everyday US citizen is to be a wholly integrated ‘composite’ as well.. [China is emphasized as at the time they were fully expecting to soon be importing tens of millions of Chinese wage slaves (ie so called ‘cheap labor’) into the United States, to ‘take the place’ of the then still largely Anglo-Saxon working class population.]

    Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See (1870) – pg 515

    ‘The Coming Man’

    “But the future man of the American Republic will be a thoroughly composite being. It is not simply the union of the Mongolian and Caucasian types to which we are to look forward, but an agglomoration of almost all races and nationalities to make up the coming man. The old English of New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas, already blended with Huguenot, Norman French, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian blood, will receive from the Canadian French on the one side and the Hispano – Americans on the other, an accession of French, Spanish, and Portuguese blood not wholly free from an admixture in all degrees with the Northern Indian, the aztec, and the negro races, and these, with the blending in our own Southern and Southwestern States with the African stock, and the combination in the not distant future of Chinese, Japanese, Hindoo, Malay, and Polynesian, will give to the average American of a hundred years hence, a darker complexion and very different intellectual and moral characteristics from those which we possess today…”

    To cut to the chase, I think the desired characteristics for Euros is what the London Times in an 1851 editorial desired for a new Irish people, that of being ‘more mixed. more docile,’ and ‘which can submit to a master’.

    With due respect, the context of the editorial those words appeared in makes it plain they were referencing the historic ‘plantation’ population of Northern Ireland, whom they hoped at the time to replace the whole of the Irish population with. I think it well illustrates what in reality is the utter contempt held by elites for ‘immigrants’ and the resulting ‘mixed’ populations whom they see as slaves. [See my archives for that particular editorial.]

The rich and young do not care about public schools or city services and the poor will live with what they get.

    Sort of. What inflates the prices currently is mostly mass immigration, which increase demand and reduce supply, and construction limitations plus lots of people wanting to live in a nice sunny climate. Also things such as "affordable housing" and "section 8" actually may increase prices as people want to move away from "bad neighborhoods", and that increases the price of the houses in the increasingly less numerous "good neighborhoods", where tend to protect themselves, such as Malibu. There's no "affordable housing" in Malibu... And if there ever is, it will be a scam.

    But there's nothing "natural" about those high prices. They have been created by policies and demographic movements that severely changed California. Houses were not expensive there in the 50s and 60s. So to talk about "free market" and "prices find their own level" is another naiveté.

    Now notice that they are trying to create Rent Control laws for all of California, and to prohibit eviction even for the worse tenants, for any reason... It's another attempt at the planned destruction of the middle class, and to make it impossible except for the very rich to own houses.

Eighty-five percent of their money and effort was spent on subversion. “None of this James Bond nonsense!”

    Making it worse, my impression is that San Mateo was actually relatively cheap until some point in the last thirty years. I remember I used to think about moving there, circa 1990. It was kind of the working-class town of the Peninsula: partly Hispanic, fairly affordable, a really great sandwich shop with a daily $2.00 special...Menlo Park, it was not.

    So any absence of blacks owes little to any practices back in the 1940's. There's been lots of time to move in since -- as the 57% percent non-white figure demonstrates.

    One of the snarky comments made by rich progressives is that white conservatives are afraid of being displaced by immigrants. In reality, many conservative whites have already been displaced by immigrants and minorities.

    If there was one conservative academic worth anything, they would do a historical review of public schools that were majority non-Hispanic white in 1964 that now have few, if any, white students. Those are the neighborhoods where whites have already been displaced.

    I cannot deny his point that blacks were kept out of housing due to their race in the past. But what is keeping blacks out of white neighborhoods today is lack of money. In fact today the trend is for gentrification which pushes blacks out and replaces them with whites.

    We are having a growing housing crisis as we continue to take in lots of new immigrants who push up the price of housing and cause further crowding as people who can't afford market rate housing are forced to live with their parents or double up in some way. What does he have to say about that, the real source of the problem? Nothing.

    How anybody can claim to be concerned about the housing crisis in America and righting prior wrongs done to blacks can suggest giving $1.4 million to a few blacks so they can live in wildly overpriced Silicon Valley as a solution is beyond me.

    In most jurisdictions the physical deed transferring the property is a boilerplate document that is recorded in the office of a county clerk or registrar by a title insurance company. Such documents until recently where photocopied, now scanned and conformed. And that is done so the legal metes and bounds description of the lot conveyed is accurate. You do not want to foul up what land is actually being sold. This is especially so if the plot is irregular rather than 4 corners of 90 degrees, as many are. While banks care a great deal about the credit worthy-ness of purchasers, nobody enforces such racial covenants.For 80 years. This article plays up the covenant without stating obviously most have either been totally unenforced by anyone or deleted by lawyers and title insurance companies became aware of them. In fact the article fails to cite even one instance of any of them being enforced, nor who would do so.

    Colorado has 697 corners.

    But you have to wonder about those "90-degree" turns on lots. Were Colorado and Wyoming really rectangular, their northern borders are still about 25 miles shorter than their southern ones due to the convergence of meridians at the poles.

    How does this work at the micrometric level? Is the north side of the township a few leagues shorter than the south? How about the lot we just bought? I once worked as a rod man for a surveyor, but that was in the metes-and-bounds Catskills, where some of the earlier deed transfers we researched were delineated in pounds, shillings, and pence.

    I learned the dangers of convergence one night in college, driving a classmate back due north to the campus after an event in a nearby city. It was dark, and I'd forgotten about this 90- (or so) degree jag in the back road home, and went off into some farmer's field. The jag was there to correct for the convergence.

    San Mateo was only ever, at most, half working class. Everything to the west of El Camino Real has always been solidly upper middle class and above, with the most expensive neighborhoods being adjacent to Hillsborough. Predictably, the further east you go, especially past the railroad tracks, the more vibrant the population gets.

    Hillsdale, a neighborhood in San Mateo, is probably populated by people pretty similar to Hillsborough, the small town to the north of San Mateo, though Hillsborough is probably whiter.
     
    No, wrong. Hillsdale is not at all like Hillsborough. (Hillsborough, btw, is west of San Mateo and Burlingame.) It's not hilly; nowhere does it even come close to bordering Hillsborough. Frankly, it's a quite unimpressive run-of-the-mill neighborhood centered by a large, and now old, collection of apartment buildings. No doubt, at the time of its construction, it was seen as "affordable housing," whether or not such a term was used then.

    Yuri Bezmenov, a Soviet propagandist who defected to the West in the 1960's, makes the same point right at the start (around 0:0:45) of this video. He says that only about 10-15% of the money and manpower of the KGB spent outside the Soviet Union was for "spying" like James Bond. Eighty-five percent of their money and effort was spent on subversion. "None of this James Bond nonsense!"

They killed millions and took what they wanted, running every vassal state into the ground in the process. That's BLM, and AOC and the Squad, and the people cynically running demented Joe Biden for president.

    A little old lady from Leningrad was hauled in for questioning by the KGB, but she got in the first question.

    "Tell me, comrades," the old lady asked, "was Communism invented by Marxist/Leninist theoreticians, or was Communism invented by scientists?"

    And apparently SSF High School is 4% white, 1% black https://www.greatschools.org/california/south-san-francisco/6993-South-San-Francisco-High-School/#Students

    You're probably right that some white and asian kids are going to private schools, and it's not valid to go by public highschool attendance, but it's still the case that San Mateo county is orthogonal to "the narrative":

    The kids and grand-kids of those evil red-liners can't afford to live there (unless inheriting the property) because the housing prices are driven up by:
    - poor / lowish skilled asian and latino immigrants who are willing to live at the multiple people per room density.
    - high skilled tech immigrants of all colors who live with apartment-mates at $2k/bedroom into their 30s and then buy >$1m places (with down payments from their parents).

    Blacks are such a small fraction of the population that they don't even factor into it.

    Like in most of the "achievement gap is proof or white racism against blacks" stories, the mid-20th century WASPs and Italians are SO white-supremacist and anti-black that they're replacing themselves with Chinese, Mexicans, Central Americans, Indians, Persians, Armenians and Russians.

    White oppression of blacks is just not the story from the pov of whites because they're not being pressured or displaced by blacks; they're being pressured by other groups.
    White oppression of blacks is also not the story from the pov of blacks (what few there are) because American whites in the area are less anti-black than any of the other groups listed.

  125. Given that Ms Heath would like to live in a more diverse neighborhood at fifteen, I thought of a reason for affirmative action at good schools. Ms Heath has only been exposed to the minorities who can afford to live in her hood, so not many, and the ones she sees on tv. By exposing smart whites to a (milder) version of black behavior, they can be dissuaded from wanting to live in a diverse neighborhood.

    One way to interpret what she told a New York Times reporter is that she is not naive, but actually sophisticated enough to lie about wanting diversity.

    If we do get mass integration out of BLM, the pressure on teens to conform will be huge. My guess is that without the possibility of spatial separation we will see whites having to act more like blacks. Blacks are not interested in conforming to white norms. It is more than likely that they cannot. Whites were under selection for living under a state that punished violence. Blacks were not. It is quite possible that they if the whole country were integrated, we would have a whole generation where every white thought like kids who were bussed to a black school. That goes on even today, with white kids transported to magnet programs. As a general rule, even if the kids grow up to be liberals, they don’t think race problems can be solved.

    Why stop there? Why not do family desegregation? Put at least one black person in each white family home. Host a Negro in your daughter’s bedroom. I am sure it will eventually come to that.
     
    Yes, exactly.

    The self declared 'progressives' of the Anglosphere, whose political and spiritual forebears were the slave dealers/owners and hangers on of New England (and England), have been around for quite awhile, and they called themselves by that term too.

    Below is an excerpt of a US book which went through multiple editions starting with it's initial publication in 1870, and was entitled One Hundred Years Progress of the United States. It goes into excruciating detail about production figures for a wide variety of material goods, comparing the numbers and vast increase from a hundred years prior (1770) with the then present of 1870.

    The book then flips things around and describes the glorious future which awaits the United States a hundred years in the future in the very 'progressive' year of 1970. This section of the book is entitled 'Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See'.

    North America is to be a single wholly integrated continental super state by then with a population in the hundreds of millions.

    And the future everyday US citizen is to be a wholly integrated 'composite' as well.. [China is emphasized as at the time they were fully expecting to soon be importing tens of millions of Chinese wage slaves (ie so called 'cheap labor') into the United States, to 'take the place' of the then still largely Anglo-Saxon working class population.]


    Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See (1870) - pg 515

    'The Coming Man'

    "But the future man of the American Republic will be a thoroughly composite being. It is not simply the union of the Mongolian and Caucasian types to which we are to look forward, but an agglomoration of almost all races and nationalities to make up the coming man. The old English of New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas, already blended with Huguenot, Norman French, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian blood, will receive from the Canadian French on the one side and the Hispano - Americans on the other, an accession of French, Spanish, and Portuguese blood not wholly free from an admixture in all degrees with the Northern Indian, the aztec, and the negro races, and these, with the blending in our own Southern and Southwestern States with the African stock, and the combination in the not distant future of Chinese, Japanese, Hindoo, Malay, and Polynesian, will give to the average American of a hundred years hence, a darker complexion and very different intellectual and moral characteristics from those which we possess today…”
     

    To cut to the chase, I think the desired characteristics for Euros is what the London Times in an 1851 editorial desired for a new Irish people, that of being 'more mixed. more docile,' and 'which can submit to a master'.

    With due respect, the context of the editorial those words appeared in makes it plain they were referencing the historic 'plantation' population of Northern Ireland, whom they hoped at the time to replace the whole of the Irish population with. I think it well illustrates what in reality is the utter contempt held by elites for 'immigrants' and the resulting 'mixed' populations whom they see as slaves. [See my archives for that particular editorial.]

    I would like to teach some of my neighbours some manners. I would like, for example, to say to the man who drove the wrong way up a one-way street on Sunday night, while chatting away on his mobile phone, and to the man who nearly backed into me yesterday, while also chatting on his mobile phone, and to the man who drove into my friend's van last week, while also chatting on his mobile phone, that while they clearly enjoy the art of conversation, it's one that doesn't combine brilliantly with driving.

    And I would like to say to the man who drove the wrong way into the car park at Morrisons, and then hooted me, and who parked in a mother and baby slot when he was on his own, and the car park was practically empty, that it seemed a rather aggressive thing to do, and also rather lazy, and I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn't kill him to say "please" or "thank you", and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

    And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it's sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don't care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they're male) or covered up by wigs (if they're female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn't realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn't been chosen by God.

    Maybe if she dressed in accordance with the morals of that community she would be more welcome in the shops. A sleeveless low cut dress may be normal attire for her but to a Hasid she looks like a hooker.

    Hasidic shopkeepers are not supposed to carry out flirtatious conversations with females. Hasidim try to avoid physical contact with females who are not their wife.

    In short this woman is taking the valid practice of their religion by others as a personal insult, in typical female fashion. It’s not about you, honey. The Hasidim have observed these strictures for many centuries and they are not going to change their ways just because gorgeous you moved into their neighborhood.

    (because, presumably, he has been taught that she is dirty or dangerous, or, heaven forbid, dripping with menstrual blood) it makes me sad.

    It also makes me sad to see the three-year-olds in hijab, who want, of course, to look like Mummy (all three-year-olds want to look like Mummy) but who, in any case, soon won't have much choice ...

    All these things make me sad, but I accept that people should, except in certain professional situations which involve dealing with the public, be allowed to wear whatever they like, and that laws which prevent this are self-defeating, and that you can't stop parents, or rabbis, teaching little boys that adult women shouldn't even be brushed against on a bus, and I accept that some of these things are an inevitable consequence of a modern, and in many ways magnificent, multi-cultural society.

    But there's one thing I will never accept. In the next few weeks, between 500 and 2,000 British schoolgirls – yes, British schoolgirls – will be sent abroad, ostensibly on holiday, and taken to the home of a woman who will, using an often dirty razor, and no anaesthetic, slice off their labia, ...

    A properly civilised society would accept that while lovely little C of E schools were once an excellent place for children to learn about the religion that shaped their culture, art and laws, you can't have them without having the madrassa run by the mad mullah next door, and therefore, sadly, you can't have either, but have, instead, a system of compulsory state secular education, in which children learn to get on with people from all religious backgrounds and none, and are taught about all religions, but also that the culture of the country they're living in was, for 2,000 years, largely based on one.

    But we, alas, are living in a country whose government believes that schools should be "free" – free to abandon the national curriculum, free to adopt any damned framework they fancy – and that parents should be free, with no state intervention at all, to teach their children whatever sexist, racist, dangerous, violent and yes, ill-mannered, nonsense that they like

     

    Basically, she's realizing--oh so late in life--how much multiculturalism sucks.
    But, you know, cause ... uh, reasons ... it's "magnificent". So it's all ... "makes me sad". Basically it's "does not compute", "does not compute" If she was a computer on Star Trek smoke would be wafting off of her head.

    She's simply--after decades of brainwashing--incapable drawing the obvious conclusion: Those civilized CofE schools were British, but the Hassidim and madrassa Muslims are not remotely British, have absolutely no business being in Britain and should be tossed out and sent to their own nations.

    She's a 50 year old washed up British womb that yielded apparently precisely zero British kids ... while she happily spouted multiculti pieties and voted for Labor to inundate Britain with foreigners. If she wants someone to blame for finding that like in a multicultural pig pile is in fact ... a pig pile!, she should look in the mirror.

    Hasids are well known wherever they live for sexual encounters with prostitutes the 16 days of the month their wives might harbor a molecule of blood from a monthly period that might begin soon or ended 10 days ago.

    What a religion. Fuck prostitutes half the month but shy away from 70 year old white haired women because there might be a molecule of menstrual blood survived 20 years.

    According to Hasidic Chanbad orthodox law, adultery and fortification with Jewish women is a dreadful sin. But adultery and fornication with the filthy abominable shiksas is OK. In fact, it’s a mitzvah to avoid possible contamination from your wife’s last period 10 days ago. The other rationale is that the goyim aren’t really humans. So fucking a shiksa prostitute is akin to bestiality

    What a religion, stick your dick in a skank street prostitution on the way home but can’t touch your wife because she menstruated a week ago.

    I doubt she wears a party dress to shop in England . It’s too cold even in August to wear that kind of top outdoors.

    What I wonder is how she ever managed to move into a Hasidic neighborhood. Usually, no outsiders including other Jews are allowed.

    It’s not just hasid men scared of contamination of menstrual blood. Strange religion. They hire clergy critters to suck the blood from the penis cut of their new born sons, but won’t ride public transportation because they might have to sit next to a woman who might be about to menstruate next week, might be menstruating or might have menstruated 10 days ago.

    The hasid women detest out siders too. There’s a big chabad colony just east of Beverly Hills. I see the women with their kids. They behave as though the Beverly Hills Library is infested with rats or something. At the parks and play grounds their kids aren’t allowed to go near other kids. Friends have told me the hasids spit on the sidewalk when they walk by other Temples and Synagogues. That’s Friday night and Saturday, the only times of the week they actually walk.

    These ultra sects are more like monasteries for families. Endless ritual and rules for every aspect of daily life. Weddings are very Islamic. Big partitions divide the reception into men’s and women’s sections. And it’s a sin to peek around. They have a lot in common with Muslims, especially in family life and sex rules.

Anyway, in one episode the doctor tells his Native American receptionist that anyone whose name ends in "ner" is usually Jewish (the locals are trying to put together a Passover seder for him, not to hunt down any Jews in their midst) - Asner, Wexner, Dubner, etc. And the receptionist says "Costner?"

    "Residential desegregation is the final frontier... By Richard Rothstein"

    White Gentiles like to live in places where their neighbours like them, and they like their neighbours.

    Jews like to self-segregate, but don't seem to like their neighbours. This journalist, herself a rootless cosmopolitan type (born in Rome to a Swedish Lutheran mother and Scottish Presbyterian father), trod on the third rail. She was made redundant a couple of years later.

    I would like to teach some of my neighbours some manners. I would like, for example, to say to the man who drove the wrong way up a one-way street on Sunday night, while chatting away on his mobile phone, and to the man who nearly backed into me yesterday, while also chatting on his mobile phone, and to the man who drove into my friend's van last week, while also chatting on his mobile phone, that while they clearly enjoy the art of conversation, it's one that doesn't combine brilliantly with driving.

    And I would like to say to the man who drove the wrong way into the car park at Morrisons, and then hooted me, and who parked in a mother and baby slot when he was on his own, and the car park was practically empty, that it seemed a rather aggressive thing to do, and also rather lazy, and I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn't kill him to say "please" or "thank you", and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

    And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it's sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don't care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they're male) or covered up by wigs (if they're female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn't realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn't been chosen by God.

    "At my girls’ grammar school, none of us knew any boys. I joined a youth club to meet some, but the youth club was attached to a Baptist church and the boys, it turned out, had given their lives to the Lord. Soon I, too, gave my life to the Lord, and discovered the hitch. You weren’t allowed to touch the boys.

    I was 26 when I told God to fuck off out of my life. I’m sorry about the language, but this is literally what I did.

Anyway, in one episode the doctor tells his Native American receptionist that anyone whose name ends in “ner” is usually Jewish (the locals are trying to put together a Passover seder for him, not to hunt down any Jews in their midst) – Asner, Wexner, Dubner, etc. And the receptionist says “Costner?”

    He has said pupils can use their mock results, resit exams in the autumn, or accept the grade they had been awarded.

    It also makes me sad to see the three-year-olds in hijab, who want, of course, to look like Mummy (all three-year-olds want to look like Mummy) but who, in any case, soon won’t have much choice …

    All these things make me sad, but I accept that people should, except in certain professional situations which involve dealing with the public, be allowed to wear whatever they like, and that laws which prevent this are self-defeating, and that you can’t stop parents, or rabbis, teaching little boys that adult women shouldn’t even be brushed against on a bus, and I accept that some of these things are an inevitable consequence of a modern, and in many ways magnificent, multi-cultural society.

    But there’s one thing I will never accept. In the next few weeks, between 500 and 2,000 British schoolgirls – yes, British schoolgirls – will be sent abroad, ostensibly on holiday, and taken to the home of a woman who will, using an often dirty razor, and no anaesthetic, slice off their labia, …

    A properly civilised society would accept that while lovely little C of E schools were once an excellent place for children to learn about the religion that shaped their culture, art and laws, you can’t have them without having the madrassa run by the mad mullah next door, and therefore, sadly, you can’t have either, but have, instead, a system of compulsory state secular education, in which children learn to get on with people from all religious backgrounds and none, and are taught about all religions, but also that the culture of the country they’re living in was, for 2,000 years, largely based on one.

    But we, alas, are living in a country whose government believes that schools should be “free” – free to abandon the national curriculum, free to adopt any damned framework they fancy – and that parents should be free, with no state intervention at all, to teach their children whatever sexist, racist, dangerous, violent and yes, ill-mannered, nonsense that they like

    Basically, she’s realizing–oh so late in life–how much multiculturalism sucks.
    But, you know, cause … uh, reasons … it’s “magnificent”. So it’s all … “makes me sad”. Basically it’s “does not compute”, “does not compute” If she was a computer on Star Trek smoke would be wafting off of her head.

    She’s simply–after decades of brainwashing–incapable drawing the obvious conclusion: Those civilized CofE schools were British, but the Hassidim and madrassa Muslims are not remotely British, have absolutely no business being in Britain and should be tossed out and sent to their own nations.

    She’s a 50 year old washed up British womb that yielded apparently precisely zero British kids … while she happily spouted multiculti pieties and voted for Labor to inundate Britain with foreigners. If she wants someone to blame for finding that like in a multicultural pig pile is in fact … a pig pile!, she should look in the mirror.

    Random hate and drug fueled murder via knife crime by one of the hordes of the so called'cheap labor'/ 'immigrants, and, or, their descendants, some racially motivated against the few remaining Anglo-Saxons left, is to be a common everyday occurrence. This would have fit right in with the plot lines of any 1970's US inner city crime drama, such as Baretta or Kojak.

    'Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See' (in 1970) - (1870)

    'A little farther on a crowd are gathered, who suddenly start and fly for their lives. A stalwart Malay, whose face is so malignant with all evil passions that it would make a capital study for Gustave Dore in his next picture of Satan, and who is maddened with vile liquor and opium has rushed out and is running amok, striking and stabbing with his gleaming Kriss, everyone in his way. Yet farther on the Hindoo, sleek, graceful, and eminently handsome in form and feature, but treacherous and deceitful, bows very humbly and obsequiously, but it would not surprise us to know, that in one of his fits of jealousy against Englishmen and Americans, he had assassinated some friend of ours to whom he had been equally obsequious and polite.”

    Does "qualify" include having $20,000 in the bank for a down payment for the $100,000 loan, plus another $10-20,000 in liquid cash to handle moving expenses and immediate purchases of furniture, window coverings, appliances, and exterior and landscaping services, if needed? This cash savings hurdle is the problem for most blacks I think, although from what I read in the New York Times every white couple (except for me and all my friends) apparently just got this cash from their money tree parents for free.

    Recent Ex-Silicon Valley (as of three months ago) resident here.

    The reason houses are so expensive in San Mateo and surrounding areas is because of the Apple/Facebook/Google tech boom, and before that it was the Intel, AMD and other semiconductor companies and the high paying jobs that grew up around there.

    Republicans should have done something for Georgians and gotten rid of your–pretty abusive!–income tax while they had a clear majority. Now it may be too late, and while your neighborhood and schools may be great, you’re going to be milked and milked and milked by the parasites.

    Republicans continually fail to deal with the demographic destruction. They neither fight to allow their voters to resist the demographic tide–actually keep their nice stuff. Nor do they take measures now–like constitutionally cancelling the income tax–that will give their voters at least a window of not being the cows for the parasites to milk.

    White Gentiles like to live in places where their neighbours like them, and they like their neighbours.

    Jews like to self-segregate, but don't seem to like their neighbours. This journalist, herself a rootless cosmopolitan type (born in Rome to a Swedish Lutheran mother and Scottish Presbyterian father), trod on the third rail. She was made redundant a couple of years later.

    I would like to teach some of my neighbours some manners. I would like, for example, to say to the man who drove the wrong way up a one-way street on Sunday night, while chatting away on his mobile phone, and to the man who nearly backed into me yesterday, while also chatting on his mobile phone, and to the man who drove into my friend's van last week, while also chatting on his mobile phone, that while they clearly enjoy the art of conversation, it's one that doesn't combine brilliantly with driving.

    And I would like to say to the man who drove the wrong way into the car park at Morrisons, and then hooted me, and who parked in a mother and baby slot when he was on his own, and the car park was practically empty, that it seemed a rather aggressive thing to do, and also rather lazy, and I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn't kill him to say "please" or "thank you", and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

    And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it's sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don't care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they're male) or covered up by wigs (if they're female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn't realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn't been chosen by God.

    African-Americans who qualify for a mortgage on a $100,000 property
     
    Does "qualify" include having $20,000 in the bank for a down payment for the $100,000 loan, plus another $10-20,000 in liquid cash to handle moving expenses and immediate purchases of furniture, window coverings, appliances, and exterior and landscaping services, if needed? This cash savings hurdle is the problem for most blacks I think, although from what I read in the New York Times every white couple (except for me and all my friends) apparently just got this cash from their money tree parents for free.

    I think that most blacks that "qualify" for a $100,000 home loan do so under some funky-assed jive-and-shuffle "opportunity" loan program that doesn't require that you have any cash.

    Jack, her overall thrust isn't so obtuse:


    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. ...
    (because, presumably, he has been taught that she is dirty or dangerous, or, heaven forbid, dripping with menstrual blood) it makes me sad.

    It also makes me sad to see the three-year-olds in hijab, who want, of course, to look like Mummy (all three-year-olds want to look like Mummy) but who, in any case, soon won't have much choice ...

    All these things make me sad, but I accept that people should, except in certain professional situations which involve dealing with the public, be allowed to wear whatever they like, and that laws which prevent this are self-defeating, and that you can't stop parents, or rabbis, teaching little boys that adult women shouldn't even be brushed against on a bus, and I accept that some of these things are an inevitable consequence of a modern, and in many ways magnificent, multi-cultural society.

    But there's one thing I will never accept. In the next few weeks, between 500 and 2,000 British schoolgirls – yes, British schoolgirls – will be sent abroad, ostensibly on holiday, and taken to the home of a woman who will, using an often dirty razor, and no anaesthetic, slice off their labia, ...

    A properly civilised society would accept that while lovely little C of E schools were once an excellent place for children to learn about the religion that shaped their culture, art and laws, you can't have them without having the madrassa run by the mad mullah next door, and therefore, sadly, you can't have either, but have, instead, a system of compulsory state secular education, in which children learn to get on with people from all religious backgrounds and none, and are taught about all religions, but also that the culture of the country they're living in was, for 2,000 years, largely based on one.

    But we, alas, are living in a country whose government believes that schools should be "free" – free to abandon the national curriculum, free to adopt any damned framework they fancy – and that parents should be free, with no state intervention at all, to teach their children whatever sexist, racist, dangerous, violent and yes, ill-mannered, nonsense that they like

     

    Basically, she's realizing--oh so late in life--how much multiculturalism sucks.
    But, you know, cause ... uh, reasons ... it's "magnificent". So it's all ... "makes me sad". Basically it's "does not compute", "does not compute" If she was a computer on Star Trek smoke would be wafting off of her head.

    She's simply--after decades of brainwashing--incapable drawing the obvious conclusion: Those civilized CofE schools were British, but the Hassidim and madrassa Muslims are not remotely British, have absolutely no business being in Britain and should be tossed out and sent to their own nations.

    She's a 50 year old washed up British womb that yielded apparently precisely zero British kids ... while she happily spouted multiculti pieties and voted for Labor to inundate Britain with foreigners. If she wants someone to blame for finding that like in a multicultural pig pile is in fact ... a pig pile!, she should look in the mirror.

They have their vision of ‘a perfect world’ that they’re dead set upon achieving, even if it ultimately kills many of them, their racial and ethnic ‘pets’, and most everyone else besides…Jonestown, Guyana, style.

    Below was published in the United States in 1870, describing events to be observed on the inner city streets of a western US metropolis set a hundred years in the future, in June, 1970.

    Random hate and drug fueled murder via knife crime by one of the hordes of the so called’cheap labor’/ ‘immigrants, and, or, their descendants, some racially motivated against the few remaining Anglo-Saxons left, is to be a common everyday occurrence. This would have fit right in with the plot lines of any 1970’s US inner city crime drama, such as Baretta or Kojak.

    ‘Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See’ (in 1970) – (1870)

    ‘A little farther on a crowd are gathered, who suddenly start and fly for their lives. A stalwart Malay, whose face is so malignant with all evil passions that it would make a capital study for Gustave Dore in his next picture of Satan, and who is maddened with vile liquor and opium has rushed out and is running amok, striking and stabbing with his gleaming Kriss, everyone in his way. Yet farther on the Hindoo, sleek, graceful, and eminently handsome in form and feature, but treacherous and deceitful, bows very humbly and obsequiously, but it would not surprise us to know, that in one of his fits of jealousy against Englishmen and Americans, he had assassinated some friend of ours to whom he had been equally obsequious and polite.”

  161. Household income in city of San Mateo Ca is a bit low for South San Mateo county, north Santa Clara. county.

    The most important thing to note is that household income reflects the income of everyone living in the household from one or two parents in a typical White American household to several working adults plus a couple grandparents on SSI, who never worked a day in America but get almost as much per month SSI ( for those who never contributed to social security ) as Americans who get SSA ( for those who contributed to social security for 40 years)

    2 American parents making 60K each is 120K income for the household. 6 immigrant restaurant workers making 20K a year is also 120K a year household income. That’s why asian household incomes are the highest; several working adults, a couple grannies in SSI in a 1,600 sq ft house.

    NYSLIMES claims nurses and firefighters can’t afford to live in city of San Mateo and that’s why the city needs housing projects.

    City of San Mateo firefighters start at $119,482 a year with substantial raises every year till they reach the top salary.
    Nurses at in San Mateo county start at 75K a year and with substantial raises go up to about 140K in a few years.

    So the salaries of firefighters and nurses is over the average household income in City of San Mateo County Ca. I’ve heard the average salary of Bay Area nurses is about 160K a year. Of course night and weekend differential and overtime increase the base salary.

    City of San Mateo is a lower middle working class town. Miss Heath is a Jew. Like all jews, she thinks she is oh so superior to the poor goyim nurses and firefighters. She’s stuck in a lower middle class commercial strip suburb surrounded by upper middle class suburbs yet thinks she’s so superior to the firefighters and nurses.

    No matter what your salary, if you get a pay check from someone else, you are a worker. The most mundane unionized workers are paid more than the so called professionals who can be tossed aside by HI-B workers at any time.

You either accept that all people of all races and religions ought to be allowed to live wherever they choose and behave however they like, in which case your country no longer belongs to those who settled and built it, and your descendants will be a despised minority. For this option, continue bitching online along with snarky Steve. Option two is to say no, this is unacceptable. None of these people belong in Western countries, principles be damned. Then you either deport them and/or kill them, and your descendants may be able to have families and live their lives in peace.

    The price of real estate in large cities has become disconnected from the quality of the local schools or the level of city services. Thus, large cities have become areas where the rich, the young supported by their parents, and the poor live. The rich and young do not care about public schools or city services and the poor will live with what they get.

    Yes, exactly.

    The self declared 'progressives' of the Anglosphere, whose political and spiritual forebears were the slave dealers/owners and hangers on of New England (and England), have been around for quite awhile, and they called themselves by that term too.

    Below is an excerpt of a US book which went through multiple editions starting with it's initial publication in 1870, and was entitled One Hundred Years Progress of the United States. It goes into excruciating detail about production figures for a wide variety of material goods, comparing the numbers and vast increase from a hundred years prior (1770) with the then present of 1870.

    The book then flips things around and describes the glorious future which awaits the United States a hundred years in the future in the very 'progressive' year of 1970. This section of the book is entitled 'Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See'.

    North America is to be a single wholly integrated continental super state by then with a population in the hundreds of millions.

    And the future everyday US citizen is to be a wholly integrated 'composite' as well.. [China is emphasized as at the time they were fully expecting to soon be importing tens of millions of Chinese wage slaves (ie so called 'cheap labor') into the United States, to 'take the place' of the then still largely Anglo-Saxon working class population.]


    Marvels That Our Grandchildren Will See (1870) - pg 515

    'The Coming Man'

    "But the future man of the American Republic will be a thoroughly composite being. It is not simply the union of the Mongolian and Caucasian types to which we are to look forward, but an agglomoration of almost all races and nationalities to make up the coming man. The old English of New England, Virginia, and the Carolinas, already blended with Huguenot, Norman French, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, German, French, Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian blood, will receive from the Canadian French on the one side and the Hispano - Americans on the other, an accession of French, Spanish, and Portuguese blood not wholly free from an admixture in all degrees with the Northern Indian, the aztec, and the negro races, and these, with the blending in our own Southern and Southwestern States with the African stock, and the combination in the not distant future of Chinese, Japanese, Hindoo, Malay, and Polynesian, will give to the average American of a hundred years hence, a darker complexion and very different intellectual and moral characteristics from those which we possess today…”
     

    To cut to the chase, I think the desired characteristics for Euros is what the London Times in an 1851 editorial desired for a new Irish people, that of being 'more mixed. more docile,' and 'which can submit to a master'.

    With due respect, the context of the editorial those words appeared in makes it plain they were referencing the historic 'plantation' population of Northern Ireland, whom they hoped at the time to replace the whole of the Irish population with. I think it well illustrates what in reality is the utter contempt held by elites for 'immigrants' and the resulting 'mixed' populations whom they see as slaves. [See my archives for that particular editorial.]

It was a male face, perhaps with softer features than chiseled Nordic, but just as sun-kissed white as the woman above smiling wholesomely. Anyone annoyed at being so played by the magazine could write a letter saying, thanks for the science, and I'm so relieved to see we'll all be white at last!

    Thanks. I remember that cover.

    When mid to latter 19th century plans of importing by diktat a hoped for tens of millions Chinese wage slaves (ie so called 'cheap labor') into the United States, Canada, and Australia, were falling through in 1874, the Pall Mall Gazette of London, much to it's great lament, specifically identified 'race' as the primary impediment blocking the scheme's success.

    They've not given up since those times obviously, but have simply doubled down with progressive Multi-culturalism's integral anti-race campaign, known euphamistically as 'anti-racism'.


    Pall Mall Gazette (Spring, 1874) – ‘Chinamen Out of China’

    “A dread of what might happen if capitalists could command and control these vast hordes of workmen as against men of their own race, has made the labouring class, at any rate, blind to their [the Chinese] good qualities.”

    "Residential desegregation is the final frontier... By Richard Rothstein"

    White Gentiles like to live in places where their neighbours like them, and they like their neighbours.

    Jews like to self-segregate, but don't seem to like their neighbours. This journalist, herself a rootless cosmopolitan type (born in Rome to a Swedish Lutheran mother and Scottish Presbyterian father), trod on the third rail. She was made redundant a couple of years later.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/commentators/christina-patterson/christina-patterson-the-limits-of-multi-culturalism-2036861.html


    I would like to teach some of my neighbours some manners. I would like, for example, to say to the man who drove the wrong way up a one-way street on Sunday night, while chatting away on his mobile phone, and to the man who nearly backed into me yesterday, while also chatting on his mobile phone, and to the man who drove into my friend's van last week, while also chatting on his mobile phone, that while they clearly enjoy the art of conversation, it's one that doesn't combine brilliantly with driving.

    And I would like to say to the man who drove the wrong way into the car park at Morrisons, and then hooted me, and who parked in a mother and baby slot when he was on his own, and the car park was practically empty, that it seemed a rather aggressive thing to do, and also rather lazy, and I would like to say to the man from whom I bought some paper cups, and who handled my money as if it had been dipped in anthrax, that it wouldn't kill him to say "please" or "thank you", and I would like to say to the fishmonger who asked my (black) friend whether he really wanted to buy some fish from his shop, that you should probably assume that if someone is asking for fish in your shop, then the answer is in the affirmative.

    And I would like to say to the little boy who sat bang in the middle of two seats on the bus and who, when I tried to sit next to him, leapt up as if infection from the ebola virus was imminent, that it does slightly make one feel like a pariah, and I would like to say to the women who roam the streets with double-decker pushchairs and vast armies of children, that it's sometimes nice to allow someone else to get past, and I would like to say to all these people that I don't care if they wear frock-coats, and funny suits and hats covered in plastic bags, and insist on wearing their hair in ringlets (if they're male) or covered up by wigs (if they're female), but I do think they could treat their neighbours with a bit more courtesy and just a little bit more respect.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. I didn't realise that a purchase by a goy was a crime to be punished with monosyllabic terseness, or that bus seats were a potential source of contamination, or that road signs, and parking restrictions, were for people who hadn't been chosen by God.

    What makes this whole trope hilarious is that African Americans have higher wages and higher per-capita income than Hispanics and Native Indians. So, affording these neighborhoods should as easy for African Americans as it is for the Hispanics. Yet, as a share of the population, those two groups(Hispanics & Natives) make up larger % amounts of the desirable neighborhoods in America.

    My guess is the real problem Black people face is not material in nature, not in the concept that they don’t make enough money, but that their crime scares off all the kinds of people they would like to live with. After all, the NYT isn’t complaining about enough money in our diverse public schools these days, they are complaining about a lack of White/Asian kids!

    This also explains the fundamental realignment away from economics to social policies in our National Debates. Democrats are no longer talking about the rich, or gross inequality(only referring to the concepts to make a “red-meat” tweet). Nowadays, they are talking more about immigration or housing politics or dating racism. What non-Whites in America want isn’t increased education funding and less cops, they just want to live with White/Asians and have sex with them.

    Similarly, Republicans have a blind spot as well. They think immigrants come to America for free welfare and stuff, but really the immigrants want to live with White people, and their children to marry them.

    This whole fight is over who gets to live with White people.

    The solution as I see it is to sharply increase the number of White people in America. How? I do not know.

    African-Americans who qualify for a mortgage on a $100,000 property
     
    Does "qualify" include having $20,000 in the bank for a down payment for the $100,000 loan, plus another $10-20,000 in liquid cash to handle moving expenses and immediate purchases of furniture, window coverings, appliances, and exterior and landscaping services, if needed? This cash savings hurdle is the problem for most blacks I think, although from what I read in the New York Times every white couple (except for me and all my friends) apparently just got this cash from their money tree parents for free.

    I think that most blacks that "qualify" for a $100,000 home loan do so under some funky-assed jive-and-shuffle "opportunity" loan program that doesn't require that you have any cash.

Many homeowners leave some or all window treatments when they sell.

    Videos from the event show a large group of Proud Boys marching in Kalamazoo on Saturday, most holding American flags and being confronted by counter-protesters who tried to break up the march. As the two groups start mixing, several fistfights and pushing matches can be seen breaking out.

    The Proud Boys marchers were chanting “four more years” in support of President Trump right before things turned violent. The group has been designated a hate group by The Southern Poverty Law Center.

    Well, you’re certainly correct about the old EPA. But the homicide rate has dropped by over 95%, while other crimes declining by comparable amounts, so I’m not really sure that you really need to include the “relative” in your phrase…

    Rothstein is clearly up to his old tricks again. Back in the early 2000s, he had a regular weekly Education column at the NYT, and had been periodically sniping at my “English” initiatives in California and elsewhere, which greatly irritated me.

    In 2002, one of his columns included some particularly stupid and misleading remarks, so I submitted a Letter to the Editor. A Times staffer called me the next day and confirmed that my claims were correct. So my letter was published, and Rothstein was immediately fired:

    Hasids are well known wherever they live for sexual encounters with prostitutes the 16 days of the month their wives might harbor a molecule of blood from a monthly period that might begin soon or ended 10 days ago.

    What a religion. Fuck prostitutes half the month but shy away from 70 year old white haired women because there might be a molecule of menstrual blood survived 20 years.

    According to Hasidic Chanbad orthodox law, adultery and fortification with Jewish women is a dreadful sin. But adultery and fornication with the filthy abominable shiksas is OK. In fact, it’s a mitzvah to avoid possible contamination from your wife’s last period 10 days ago. The other rationale is that the goyim aren’t really humans. So fucking a shiksa prostitute is akin to bestiality

    What a religion, stick your dick in a skank street prostitution on the way home but can’t touch your wife because she menstruated a week ago.

    When I moved to Stamford Hill, 12 years ago, I didn't realise that goyim were about as welcome in the Hasidic Jewish shops as Martin Luther King at a Klu Klux Klan convention. ...
    (because, presumably, he has been taught that she is dirty or dangerous, or, heaven forbid, dripping with menstrual blood) it makes me sad.

    It also makes me sad to see the three-year-olds in hijab, who want, of course, to look like Mummy (all three-year-olds want to look like Mummy) but who, in any case, soon won't have much choice ...

    All these things make me sad, but I accept that people should, except in certain professional situations which involve dealing with the public, be allowed to wear whatever they like, and that laws which prevent this are self-defeating, and that you can't stop parents, or rabbis, teaching little boys that adult women shouldn't even be brushed against on a bus, and I accept that some of these things are an inevitable consequence of a modern, and in many ways magnificent, multi-cultural society.

    But there's one thing I will never accept. In the next few weeks, between 500 and 2,000 British schoolgirls – yes, British schoolgirls – will be sent abroad, ostensibly on holiday, and taken to the home of a woman who will, using an often dirty razor, and no anaesthetic, slice off their labia, ...

    A properly civilised society would accept that while lovely little C of E schools were once an excellent place for children to learn about the religion that shaped their culture, art and laws, you can't have them without having the madrassa run by the mad mullah next door, and therefore, sadly, you can't have either, but have, instead, a system of compulsory state secular education, in which children learn to get on with people from all religious backgrounds and none, and are taught about all religions, but also that the culture of the country they're living in was, for 2,000 years, largely based on one.

    But we, alas, are living in a country whose government believes that schools should be "free" – free to abandon the national curriculum, free to adopt any damned framework they fancy – and that parents should be free, with no state intervention at all, to teach their children whatever sexist, racist, dangerous, violent and yes, ill-mannered, nonsense that they like

     

    Basically, she's realizing--oh so late in life--how much multiculturalism sucks.
    But, you know, cause ... uh, reasons ... it's "magnificent". So it's all ... "makes me sad". Basically it's "does not compute", "does not compute" If she was a computer on Star Trek smoke would be wafting off of her head.

    She's simply--after decades of brainwashing--incapable drawing the obvious conclusion: Those civilized CofE schools were British, but the Hassidim and madrassa Muslims are not remotely British, have absolutely no business being in Britain and should be tossed out and sent to their own nations.

    She's a 50 year old washed up British womb that yielded apparently precisely zero British kids ... while she happily spouted multiculti pieties and voted for Labor to inundate Britain with foreigners. If she wants someone to blame for finding that like in a multicultural pig pile is in fact ... a pig pile!, she should look in the mirror.

    It’s not just hasid men scared of contamination of menstrual blood. Strange religion. They hire clergy critters to suck the blood from the penis cut of their new born sons, but won’t ride public transportation because they might have to sit next to a woman who might be about to menstruate next week, might be menstruating or might have menstruated 10 days ago.

    The hasid women detest out siders too. There’s a big chabad colony just east of Beverly Hills. I see the women with their kids. They behave as though the Beverly Hills Library is infested with rats or something. At the parks and play grounds their kids aren’t allowed to go near other kids. Friends have told me the hasids spit on the sidewalk when they walk by other Temples and Synagogues. That’s Friday night and Saturday, the only times of the week they actually walk.

    These ultra sects are more like monasteries for families. Endless ritual and rules for every aspect of daily life. Weddings are very Islamic.

    "What I wonder is how she ever managed to move into a Hasidic neighborhood. Usually, no outsiders including other Jews are allowed."

    Even in the pozzed UK the only way to enforce that is either with violence or by buying up all the property, which they do to the best of their ability. But there are over 2,000 "social housing" units in Stamford Hill, and these are by no means all Hasidic - they're just not very white.

    The Stamford Hill "community" kicked up quite a fuss over the Cameron/Osborne 2015 benefit reforms, which affected them in two ways

    a) no benefits (going forward, existing ones retained) after child 2
    b) private rents paid by benefits were restricted, so the maximum weekly rent that benefits will pay for a three-bed flat in Stamford Hill is £441, assuming that's the size your family need. Back in the day you'd charge much more and keep the surplus or split it with the tenant. Nice little earner it was too, for all sorts of landlords.

    It's still not bad, at about £22,000 a year. But for some private tenants that no one wants unless they are paid a LOT of cash, no London rentals can be found - so you get highly unpleasant people being moved to Bradford or Barnsley, where rents are cheap.

    In most jurisdictions the physical deed transferring the property is a boilerplate document that is recorded in the office of a county clerk or registrar by a title insurance company. Such documents until recently where photocopied, now scanned and conformed. And that is done so the legal metes and bounds description of the lot conveyed is accurate. You do not want to foul up what land is actually being sold. This is especially so if the plot is irregular rather than 4 corners of 90 degrees, as many are. While banks care a great deal about the credit worthy-ness of purchasers, nobody enforces such racial covenants.For 80 years. This article plays up the covenant without stating obviously most have either been totally unenforced by anyone or deleted by lawyers and title insurance companies became aware of them. In fact the article fails to cite even one instance of any of them being enforced, nor who would do so.

    Colorado has 697 corners.

    But you have to wonder about those “90-degree” turns on lots. Were Colorado and Wyoming really rectangular, their northern borders are still about 25 miles shorter than their southern ones due to the convergence of meridians at the poles.

    How does this work at the micrometric level? Is the north side of the township a few leagues shorter than the south? How about the lot we just bought? I once worked as a rod man for a surveyor, but that was in the metes-and-bounds Catskills, where some of the earlier deed transfers we researched were delineated in pounds, shillings, and pence.

    I learned the dangers of convergence one night in college, driving a classmate back due north to the campus after an event in a nearby city. It was dark, and I’d forgotten about this 90- (or so) degree jag in the back road home, and went off into some farmer’s field. The jag was there to correct for the convergence.

    It's the other way around if the township is in the southern hemisphere. There's more: if your lot is large enough, it can have three "90-degree'' angles. The quotation marks are to emphasize those are not true 90-degree angles, due to the Earth's oblate spheroidal shape. Note that, for the same reason, the three sides of the lot would not be equal to one another. And of course, if your lot spanned the entire surface of the planet, it'd have no angles.

    "That $1.8 million house in San Mateo would be over $18k / year in property tax (after reassessment) if bought at that price."
     
    Res, you're right on that, at the current property tax rate for San Mateo, 1.2194%, this homes new owner's 1st year assessment will be almost $22K; likely rising at 1978's proposition 13 capped 2% per annum, plus any voter approved supplemental increases (base rate 1%, plus the additional .2194% self inflicted, so far, at the ballot) along the way. Voter approved increases over the years:

    All that added revenue didn't help too much; while much better than CA average, the public high is nothing to write home about:

    As an aside, I was visiting an acquaintance in San Mateo Friday evening when the power cut; rolling black out to "conserve the grid". It's been unusually hot in the Bay Area, especially the peninsula (SF). Some of the highest electricity rates in the US, so I guess it's to be expected.

    My aunt and uncle in San Jose are beneficiaries of Prop 13. They’ve been in their crummy condo since 70 or 75….my uncle is 85 i think now.

    Their half century owned condo in the SE Bay is worth ~800k$$

    They’d have to sell & move if they had to pay realistic taxes on their condo….

    Even if the whites of San Mateo gave away their condos the blacks couldn’t afford the tax burden….

    When your government forces your community to build “affordable housing” next door to you, you will understand

    Already did. My parents' house, the home I grew up in. Middle class, nice neighborhood. Clean streets, good schools. Economic depression came (due to Fed policies). The Whites had to move for work. FHA sold those houses to slum lords, who moved in tons of blacks for section 8 rent.

    No one came to my dad's defense. Why should I care about rich jerks who VOTED for the kinds of policies that predictably result in what they're getting now, that they asked for, good and hard?

    Replies: @guest007

    One of the snarky comments made by rich progressives is that white conservatives are afraid of being displaced by immigrants. In reality, many conservative whites have already been displaced by immigrants and minorities.

    If there was one conservative academic worth anything, they would do a historical review of public schools that were majority non-Hispanic white in 1964 that now have few, if any, white students. Those are the neighborhoods where whites have already been displaced. As Steve Sailer likes to point out, look at the number of white progressive Democratic Party elected politicians are representing locations that they fled to due to white flight.

    This is especially so if the plot is irregular rather than 4 corners of 90 degrees, as many are.
     
    Colorado has 697 corners.

    But you have to wonder about those "90-degree" turns on lots. Were Colorado and Wyoming really rectangular, their northern borders are still about 25 miles shorter than their southern ones due to the convergence of meridians at the poles.

    How does this work at the micrometric level? Is the north side of the township a few leagues shorter than the south? How about the lot we just bought? I once worked as a rod man for a surveyor, but that was in the metes-and-bounds Catskills, where some of the earlier deed transfers we researched were delineated in pounds, shillings, and pence.

    I learned the dangers of convergence one night in college, driving a classmate back due north to the campus after an event in a nearby city. It was dark, and I'd forgotten about this 90- (or so) degree jag in the back road home, and went off into some farmer's field. The jag was there to correct for the convergence.

    This only makes sense if you assume the houses just sprouted out of nowhere and have existed since the beginning of time. In reality, houses can be built, but aren't. As I said, take a look at the area, lotsa undeveloped land:

    I doubt she wears a party dress to shop in England . It’s too cold even in August to wear that kind of top outdoors.

    What I wonder is how she ever managed to move into a Hasidic neighborhood. Usually, no outsiders including other Jews are allowed.

    It’s not just hasid men scared of contamination of menstrual blood. Strange religion. They hire clergy critters to suck the blood from the penis cut of their new born sons, but won’t ride public transportation because they might have to sit next to a woman who might be about to menstruate next week, might be menstruating or might have menstruated 10 days ago.

    The hasid women detest out siders too. There’s a big chabad colony just east of Beverly Hills. I see the women with their kids. They behave as though the Beverly Hills Library is infested with rats or something. At the parks and play grounds their kids aren’t allowed to go near other kids. Friends have told me the hasids spit on the sidewalk when they walk by other Temples and Synagogues. That’s Friday night and Saturday, the only times of the week they actually walk.

    These ultra sects are more like monasteries for families. Endless ritual and rules for every aspect of daily life. Weddings are very Islamic. Big partitions divide the reception into men’s and women’s sections. And it’s a sin to peek around. They have a lot in common with Muslims, especially in family life and sex rules.
    A thousand years of no choice arranged marriages resulted in their unfortunate appearance. Niece to blood uncle and cousin marriages haven’t helped either.

    “What I wonder is how she ever managed to move into a Hasidic neighborhood. Usually, no outsiders including other Jews are allowed.”

    Even in the pozzed UK the only way to enforce that is either with violence or by buying up all the property, which they do to the best of their ability. But there are over 2,000 “social housing” units in Stamford Hill, and these are by no means all Hasidic – they’re just not very white.

    The Stamford Hill “community” kicked up quite a fuss over the Cameron/Osborne 2015 benefit reforms, which affected them in two ways

    a) no benefits (going forward, existing ones retained) after child 2
    b) private rents paid by benefits were restricted, so the maximum weekly rent that benefits will pay for a three-bed flat in Stamford Hill is £441, assuming that’s the size your family need. Back in the day you’d charge much more and keep the surplus or split it with the tenant. Nice little earner it was too, for all sorts of landlords.

    It’s still not bad, at about £22,000 a year. But for some private tenants that no one wants unless they are paid a LOT of cash, no London rentals can be found – so you get highly unpleasant people being moved to Bradford or Barnsley, where rents are cheap.

    Thanks. I remember that cover.

    When mid to latter 19th century plans of importing by diktat a hoped for tens of millions Chinese wage slaves (ie so called ‘cheap labor’) into the United States, Canada, and Australia, were falling through in 1874, the Pall Mall Gazette of London, much to it’s great lament, specifically identified ‘race’ as the primary impediment blocking the scheme’s success.

    They’ve not given up since those times obviously, but have simply doubled down with progressive Multi-culturalism’s integral anti-race campaign, known euphamistically as ‘anti-racism’.

    Pall Mall Gazette (Spring, 1874) – ‘Chinamen Out of China’

    “A dread of what might happen if capitalists could command and control these vast hordes of workmen as against men of their own race, has made the labouring class, at any rate, blind to their [the Chinese] good qualities.”

Many homeowners leave some or all window treatments when they sell.
