Who’s To Blame?

Who's To Blame For Rapes and Mass Shootings?
Who’s To Blame?

Yes, it’s in our nature to seek out who or what is to blame for any crisis – sometimes so much so that common decency is left by the wayside. Of course more consistently and less hypocrisy when it comes to blame would be nice. It’s a shame that the hoplophobic Left can’t manage that. Then, consistency and probity aren’t in their natures.

You Will Rent The Apt

If Americans though it was horrific that your business and life could be destroyed for not baking a cake or not printing a tee-shirt that one found offensive was bad, they really need to see where this sort of thing is going and what the Obama Regime is doing.

Forget cakes and tee-shirts for queers. The Obama Regime is demanding that landlords rent the apartment to criminals if those criminals are non-White, especially Black.

Across the United States, African Americans and Hispanics are arrested, convicted and incarcerated at rates disproportionate to their share of the general population. Consequently, criminal records-based barriers to housing are likely to have a disproportionate impact on minority home seekers. While having a criminal record is not a protected characteristic under the Fair Housing Act, criminal history-based restrictions on housing opportunities violate the Act if, without justification, their burden falls more often on renters or other housing market participants of one race or national origin over another (i.e., discriminatory effects liability).

~*~

A housing provider violates the Fair Housing Act when the provider’s policy or practice has an unjustified discriminatory effect, even when the provider had no intent to discriminate. Under this standard, a facially – neutral policy or practice that has a discriminatory effect violates the Act if it is not supported by a legally sufficient justification. Thus, where a policy or practice that restricts access to housing on the basis of criminal history has a disparate impact on individuals of a particular race, national origin, or other protected class, such policy or practice is unlawful under the Fair Housing Act if it is not necessary to serve a substantial, legitimate, nondiscriminatory interest of the housing provider, or if such interest could be served by another practice that has a less discriminatory effect.

And of course, if the non-White criminal files a discrimination complaint, the landlord or “property provider” is the one who must shoulder the burden and expense of proving that they had a substantial, legitimate, nondiscriminatory interest in not renting property the non-White criminal, that such interest was neither hypothetical nor speculative, that not renting the property to the non-White criminal in question would achieve that interest, and that not renting the property to the non-White criminal was the only way to achieve that interest.

Yes, in this case as it is in every single case involving “disparate impact,” “discriminatory effect,” and “protected classes” there is a presumption of guilt upon the presumably White defendant – guilty until proven innocent. This is because the accused, if White, is considered guilty not due to his or her actions and motives but because the complainant is non-White and the effect upon the complainant is negative.

To further degrade any hope for true, unbiased justice in these matters, consider the qualifications needed for the landlord’s interests – substantial, legitimate, nondiscriminatory, and neither hypothetical nor speculative. All of these are completely and utterly subjective. These are metrics decided upon solely so that the government is the final arbiter of what any case’s results will be.

Cracka, you will rent the apartment to that Black or Hispanic thug or you will be destroyed.

Crime Pays Now

Social Justice - Stealing from Whites to give to non-WhitesAs all Americans know – or bloody well should know by this point – Liberals and Progressives, the bulk of those supporting Democrat politicians with money and votes, hate history except when that history or the careful revision of it can pain Americans, especially Whites, in a bad light. Hence, it’s not too shocking that our domestic enemies have openly rejected the historical adage, “Crime doesn’t pay.”

Indeed, our domestic enemies have, instead, embraced the exact opposite of this truism. Now, if the verminous perp is of the correctly protected persuasion, crime does in fact pay. It does, at least in Richmond, CA where the Democrats have decided to pay thugs not to kill people.

Whitey better pay up unless he wants more blood in the streets
It’d Sho Be A Shame If Sometin’ Happened Up In This Fly Town

Yes, you read that right; Richmond, CA is paying violent felons to refrain from committing further violent crimes … And other Democrat ruled municipalities are looking to do the same.

The odds were good that Lonnie Holmes, 21, would be the next person to kill or be killed in this working-class suburb north of San Francisco.

Four of his cousins had died in shootings. He was a passenger in a car involved in a drive-by shooting, police said. And he was arrested for carrying a loaded gun.

But when Holmes was released from prison last year, officials in this city offered something unusual to try to keep him alive: money. They began paying Holmes as much as $1,000 a month not to commit another gun crime.

I really don’t know whether it’s better to describe this as a setup for a Black run protection racket where the cities must pay thugs not to cause harm or as a case where a young thug’s first arrest and incarceration is an unpaid internship leading to a payed position.

They even have felons like the aforementioned Holmes “mentoring” other violent, ghetto thugs and operating in a “don’t snitch” manner while utilizing taxpayer-funded vehicles and drivers.

The mentors have coaxed inebriated teenagers threatening violence into city cars, not for a ride to jail but home to sleep it off — sometimes with loaded firearms still in their waistbands. The mentors have funded trips to South Africa, London and Mexico City for rival gang members in the hope that shared experiences and time away from the city streets would ease tensions and forge new connections.

And when the elaborate efforts at engagement fail, the mentors still pay those who pledge to improve, even when, like Holmes, they are caught with a gun, or worse — suspected of murder.

The city-paid mentors operate at a distance from police. To maintain the trust of the young men they’re guiding, mentors do not inform police of what they know about crimes committed. At least twice, that may have allowed suspected killers in the stipend program to evade responsibility for homicides.

Of course, this is such a perfect and perfectly Liberal plan that Democrats in Washington DC, Miami, Toledo, Baltimore and more than a dozen cities with significant ghetto and/or barrio populations are eager to replicate Richmond’s plan.

So it looks like crime does pay…if you’re in the right place and are the right sort of criminal.
