The fact is that too many African-Americans are living among racist whites in America's southeast, when they would fare much better in the progressive, but racially segregated Northeast, Northwest and wealthy parts of California.
Here Comes The "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing" Rule: How Obama Will Centrally-Plan Your Neighborhood
But who doesn't want a government-mandated surge in crime? Then again, as with everything else by the administration whose shroud of TPP secrecy, as we learned yesterday, was dictated by the Big Pharma corporations who stand to reap huge benefits with its passage, there appears to be a far more ulterior motive: if passed, the act "could also tilt the balance of political power as more minorities areThis is an issue that screams for malicious compliance under a Republican president.

Actually scratch what we said about 1965 USSR: not even there could such a massive governmental overreach pass without some rather unpleasant social retaliation. Then again this is 2015 USA.
Incidentally, there is already an example of a "noble" idea at helping the poor going horribly wrong: one which the Supreme Court is expected to rule on in the near future.
The Supreme Court is expected to weigh in on housing discrimination in a related case in the coming weeks. At issue is whether government policies that unintentionally create a disparate impact for minority communities violate federal laws against segregation.
The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs is facing accusations that it makes low-income housing funds more readily available in minority neighborhoods than in white neighborhoods. This promotes segregation, critics argue, by encouraging minorities to continue living in poor communities where government assistance is available.

As for the president, little did we realize just how greatly we, and everyone else, had misread the definition of "community organizer."
