Connecticut Town Discriminated Against Potential Minority Homeowners

Winchester, Connecticut is over 94 percent white

winchester connecticut houseAccording to the Huffington Post, a lawsuit has been filed against the city of Winchester, Connecticut for allegedly discriminating against potential minority homeowners.

The Housing Authority of Winchester unlawfully discriminated against minorities in its administration of a federal housing subsidy program. The Section 8 Housing policy in this Connecticut town only allowed residents of certain towns to receive vouchers for housing. The majority of those towns where you had to reside in were all over 90 percent white, effectively shutting out many black and Latino applicants.

Winchester is 94.5 percent white and none of its householders are African American. The Housing Authority reportedly gave their available housing vouchers to whites to keep the town predominantly white.

      Black men are more likly to be murdered by another black man now . This is not what Martin Luther King wanted. He helped Blacks get equality, but wth freedom comes responsibility. Blacks, it seems, proved The Man right. You can’t make people want you or respect you with forced legislation. Why don’t I sue predominantly Black neighborhoods for not integratig with Whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc. Each group lives where they are comfortable. I would want Blacks that share similar culture/langauge/values as I do. I don’t want gang, hiphop, dopers, and hood rats near my famity and friends. Suing predominately white areas will only fuel the hatred.
