Richard Rothstein Two solutions to end Segregation in Housing
Richard Rothstein, a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute offers two solutions to end segregation in housing in America. The first plan is to sell homes for far below market value to minorities. The second plan is to force low income housing and multifamily homes into every neighborhood. Only communities meeting racial criteria will be given HUD funding. Believe it or not, this is the basis upon which HUD's new rule "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) has been created. Marin County is a prime testing ground for the policy and Marinwood-Lucas Valley is the neighborhood targeted for massive redevelopment. He speaks at the Fair Housing of Marin Conference held in San Rafael, CA on April 4, 2016.
