In a op-ed piece in the Washington Times, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson discusses how busing failed to address the lack of a racial utopia in America, but the Obama administration has recently implemented a new HUD rule that will “desegregate” housing.Earlier this month, HUD released its final rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing. The rule was created to “desegregate” housing by withholding funds from communities that fail to demonstrate their projects “affirmatively further” fair housing.“As a former mayor, I know firsthand that strong communities are vital to the well-being and prosperity of families,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “Unfortunately, too many Americans find their dreams limited by where they come from, and a ZIP code should never determine a child’s future. This important step will give local leaders the tools they need to provide all Americans with access to safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity.”Carson adds that the Fair Housing Act and other laws have contributed the reduction of explicit discrimination in housing, but significant disparities in housing availability and quality persist.”The new rule would not only condition the grant of HUD funds to municipalities on building affordable housing as is the case today, but would require that such affordable housing be built primarily in wealthier neighborhoods with few current minority residents and that the new housing be aggressively marketed to minorities,” Carson noted.At the end of June, the Supreme Court ruled that the use of “disparate impact” claims can legally be brought about under the Fair Housing Act. While the Court ruled that disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act, that ruling came with a caveat.”So the Court holds that there is a disparate impact claim under the FHA as a matter of statutory interpretation, but the Court cautions that remedial orders in disparate impact cases that impose racial targets or quotas could be unconstitutional,” Attorney Kevin Russell said on the SCOTUS blog. “. . .The Court emphasizes, however, that disparate impact liability should be imposed cautiously. To avoid constitutional problems, statistical disparity is not enough.”Oftentimes, these forced racial equality attempts by the government create larger issues instead of solving them, Carson says.”These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse,” Carson concluded. “There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more


Governor Douglas announces $200,000 grant for Middlebury

first_imgA dental office that will provide access to dental care for low to moderate income individuals in Addison County, as well as the general population, will be getting a $200,000 boost from the state, Governor Jim Douglas announced Wednesday.In a ceremony at the future home of the Addison County Dental Center, Douglas presented a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant to the Town of Middlebury that will be used to help equip and furnish the offices on Merchants Row. This is an area which has been in need of additional dental care providers for some time, Douglas said. The Addison County Dental Center will focus on providing access to dental care for low to moderate income individuals, but will also be a resource for all of the people of Addison County.Douglas noted that the dental office, located in the former Citizens Bank site, is near the Addison County Transit Resources bus route and is also within walking distance of Middlebury College, the Mary Hogan Elementary School, Middlebury Union High School and the Mary Johnson Children’s Center.The center will have 4 treatment rooms, 4 dental chairs, a reception/business office area, a sterilization center and a lab.Middlebury Town Manager William Finger, and Peg Martin and Seymour Rettinger of the non-profit Addison County Dental Center were on hand to accept the check. We are very appreciative to the Vermont Community Development Program for this generous grant and are looking forward to a grand opening of this much-needed center this summer, said Martin, a board member of the Addison County Dental Center. As a result of this contribution, the financial goals of Addison County Dental Center are almost fully realized, making us a go-ahead project, Rettinger said. We will be reaching out to the community for contributions to finish our funding needs.The Governor praised the work of the Addison County Dental Center; the Town of Middlebury; and the Vermont Health Department, as well as the dedication of the staff at the Department of Housing and Community Affairs who work in the Vermont Community Development Program. These grants are important because they leverage other financial resources and help address critical housing, service, and economic development needs in our communities, Douglas said.The Agency awards the competitive grants based on recommendations of the Vermont Community Development Board and approval of Commerce and Community Development Secretary Kevin Dorn.For information about the Vermont Community Development Program, please see the Agency of Commerce and Community Development website at: http://www.dhca.state.vt.us/VCDP/index.htm(link is external)last_img read more

Inside Conditions…Skin Game

first_imgAUBREY BRUCEI have come to respect mostly every sport, even the ones that I don’t like and have little or no interest in.As I viewed the 2014 Winter Olympics in Socchi, Russia I felt a sense of pride seeing the smiles and competitive spirit of the “little ones” (many are still adolescents) displayed right before me.  The young athletes hailing from “these” United States of America, just like all of their colleagues from across the globe sacrifice time, money, blood, sweat and tears just for a chance to stand on the podium listening to their national anthems being played while watching with tear stained eyes as their flags are raised in triumph. However there is a monumental difference as to the social and economic treatment of most of the athletes once the competition has concluded and they have returned to their native lands.Once they return home, the athletes from Switzerland, Norway, Austria, Finland, Russia, or any other European nation more than likely don’t have to fear losing their lives, if they play their music a bit loud, or if they reach into their pocket or fret about being followed and murdered if they put on a “hoodie” before they embark on a journey to the store to buy a bag of Skittles and a soda.No the European “soldiers of sport” will return home worshipped as heroes with their exploits forever etched in the collective, history and memory of the country.Now folks get this.  There was once a rock group that was popular, very popular.  The name of the group was Twisted Sister. A few days ago I was going over a few “web based” sports news reports and stories in the wake of the thrashing that the Seattle Seahawks put on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.  I ran across an article that featured the rant of a real life twisted sister.The article featured a photo of Seattle cornerback Richard “Sherman tank” Sherman proudly posing with the Lombardi Trophy.  I instantly thought, “oh no Rich, no more boasting and telling the truth;  haven’t you learned anything yet?” However, as I read the article that accompanied the picture I realized that the photo was Sherman’s response to a nasty and insidious tweet that he had received.In this day and age tweets might as well be sheets because anonymous tweets are nothing more than electronic smoke screens and cross burnings for the cowardly carriers of racist communiqués.The tweet that I am referring to is a quote taken from an article written by Connor Hutyler from a supposedly yardbarker.com “humor” based article. Mr. Hutyler writes, “Seattle Seahawks All-Pro Cornerback Richard Sherman is one of the most polarizing figures in professional sports. People either love him or hate him, and the people who fall into the latter category are probably pretty upset now that Sherman can add ‘World Champion’ to his résumé.”I’m sure many people are constantly tweeting awful things at Richard Sherman, but one hate tweet in particular caught Sherman’s eye.  Rather than stooping to the level of a user known as @SnBEternall on Twitter who tweeted, “Seattle beat Denver, but you contributed nothing and got carted off with an injury and even worst that I can’t print. Sherman simply replied with a nice picture of him holding the Lombardi Trophy. The ultimate “Scoreboard!” move from the Stanford grad. You’ve got to love it.People love him or hate him, wonder who the haters are? If someone had authored such a caustic and personal attack against Peyton Manning, Wes Welker, Tom Brady or any other of the NFL’s marquee players it probably would have never been published. There was nothing even remotely funny about the tweet.Why do insecure, non talented, apple pie loving, Ford truck driving, tea party card carrying, red blooded American males think because of their genealogy that they have a right to use every available breath and platform to attack and devour Black men in life in general but particularly in sports.How many times has the “work ethic” of Black Athletes been questioned?Don’t get me wrong, boys and girls. I will almost certainly despise anyone who dispenses information wherever, regardless of color, gender or age that they may be based on the “race card” just to endear a particular segment of the population to them, their poisonous rhetoric and limited thinking.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected] or 412-583-6741.)Follow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlDownload our mobile app at http://www.appshopper.com/news/new-pittsburgh-courierlast_img read more

Chelsea players will fight for manager Antonio Conte, says Thibaut Courtois

first_imgChelsea manager Antonio Conte will have the full support from his players to help the Italian avoid suffering the same fate as Jose Mourinho two years back, the Premier League champions’ goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has said.Chelsea ended a three-match winless streak with a league win over Watford last weekend but the build-up to that game was clouded by speculation about Conte’s future with media reports suggesting the players were unhappy with his training methods.Courtois compared the situation to that of Mourinho, who won the league in 2014-15 but was sacked the following season after a poor run of results.”We are ready to fight for the coach,” Courtois told Standard Sport. “I remember what happened two years ago under Jose Mourinho and things started to be said, there were stories about the dressing room without knowing what was happening.”We are happy to show that we are ready to fight. We all know what would have happened (more debate over Conte’s future)if we had lost against Watford.”Courtois, 25, dismissed reports regarding player unrest over the manager’s training methods.”Every manager has his own routine. With Antonio we do a lot of tactical sessions and drills. We are fine with it,” the Belgian said.”Last season we were champions with his way and we trained much more than this season, so I don’t know why somebody would complain. It’s not as if we don’t like to train.”Fourth-placed Chelsea face Everton in the League Cup fourth round on Wednesday before travelling to 19th-placed Bournemouth in the league on Saturday.advertisementlast_img read more
