Kamala Harris has forgotten the housing crisis


Sara Carter“After generations of discrimination, it’s time to give Black families a real shot at homeownership,” Kamala Harris (D-CA) wrote on her twitter account announcing her plan to invest $100 billion of federal money into housing assistance for black families as part her 2020 presidential campaign.

“After generations of discrimination, it’s time to give Black families a real shot at homeownership — historically one of the most powerful drivers of wealth. My new policy will remove unfair barriers Black Americans face when they go to qualify for a home loan,” wrote Harris.

This is exactly the sort of bullshit that crashed the economy in 2008. Wealth is correlated with home ownership because (relatively) wealthy people can afford to buy homes, not because owning a home makes you wealthy.
