It is no secret that as urban blight and crime spread, people with the means to escape will do so. It's human nature: if you are exposed to danger, you take steps to mitigate your exposure to harm, and one of the most sure fire methods of doing so is vacating the area that is teeming with danger.
President Barack Obama wants to change human nature. He doesn't like how human nature works in this regard, since the statistics bear out that most people with means within urban populations areas that leave are white. And these white people that flee crime ridden areas take their assets with them, leaving behind those without means. Those left behind to fend for themselves in these blighted areas are for the most part black. Or in other words, Obama constituents.
Barry doesn't like the way this is working. According to a pie-in-the-sky, dues paying leader of the liberal Democrat voting left, it's just not fair that only people with money can move to safe parts of the country. In a fair world, everybody should be able to live in safe, affluent neighborhoods. And since he is the boss, he's not going to let this kind of human nature stand, not on his watch.
Under the Obama administration, the extension of HUD Section 8 vouchers has sky rocketed, and those vouchers have to be used somewhere, and woe be it to the landlord who tries to discriminate against a holder of one of these vouchers.
This use of taxpayer money is just one of the man ways that Obama and his ilk get back at those rotten 'white flight' evacuees from urban crime, and who took all their money with them. He will do his best using the ham fisted power of the federal government to make sure that the crime these refugees escaped will follow them.
A perfect liberal nostrum: rather than encourage conservative solutions to urban crime, such as job creation, elimination of excessive regulations, etc., his solution to the concentration of criminals and undesirables within an urban setting is to spread them among the honest, hard working parts of the country. Once these Section 8 lowlifes infect an area, the property values plummet, and 'white flight' begins anew.
Perhaps President Trump should consider eliminating the Department of Housing and Urban Development. That would go far towards eliminating undesirables in our midst.
