"Institutionalized Reparations" Database Being Built by Obama

In a shocking story posted this afternoon to the New York Post, and picked up by the Drudge Report, author Paul Sperry reveals that the President whom the people had hoped would heal race relations in this country is taking unprecedented measures to make those relations worse than ever before.  Paul Sperry is a Hoover Institution media fellow and author of the book “The Great American Bank Robbery,” which exposed the racial politics behind the mortgage bust (Google Community Reinvestment Act - or search this blog's many postings on it). The administration is obtaining unprecedented information in order to prove racism.  They're doing this by data mining every piece of data the can get their hands on:
This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.
Remember what I was saying a couple of weeks ago about "disparate impact theory"?  Here it is at the point of a bayonet.  The recent Supreme Court ruling I was talking about in that link said you could be successfully sued for discrimination even if your intent was not to discriminate and you did everything in your power not to discriminate, as long as a disparate impact can be shown.  Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online, so civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists.    
The granddaddy of them all is the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing database, which the Department of Housing and Urban Development rolled out earlier this month to racially balance the nation, ZIP code by ZIP code. It will map every US neighborhood by four racial groups — white, Asian, black or African-American, and Hispanic/Latino — and publish “geospatial data” pinpointing racial imbalances.

The agency proposes using nonwhite populations of 50% or higher as the threshold for classifying segregated areas.

Federally funded cities deemed overly segregated will be pressured to change their zoning laws to allow construction of more subsidized housing in affluent areas in the suburbs, and relocate inner-city minorities to those predominantly white areas. HUD’s maps, which use dots to show the racial distribution or density in residential areas, will be used to select affordable-housing sites.

HUD plans to drill down to an even more granular level, detailing the proximity of black residents to transportation sites, good schools, parks and even supermarkets. If the agency’s social engineers rule the distance between blacks and these suburban “amenities” is too far, municipalities must find ways to close the gap or forfeit federal grant money and face possible lawsuits for housing discrimination.
Did you enjoy the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis and collapse?  They're working full tilt to create another one.
Meanwhile, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, headed by former Congressional Black Caucus leader Mel Watt, is building its own database for racially balancing home loans. The so-called National Mortgage Database Project will compile 16 years of lending data, broken down by race, and hold everything from individual credit scores and employment records.
The FHFA will also pry into your personal assets and debts and whether you have any bankruptcies. The agency even wants to know the square footage and lot size of your home, as well as your interest rate.

FHFA will share the info with Obama’s brainchild, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, CFPB, which acts more like a civil-rights agency, aggressively investigating lenders for racial bias.

CFPB is separately amassing a database to monitor ordinary citizens’ credit-card transactions. It hopes to vacuum up some 900 million credit-card accounts — all sorted by race — representing roughly 85% of the US credit-card market. Why? To sniff out “disparities” in interest rates, charge-offs and collections.
Just like everything with this virulently racist administration, everything ... everything ... is seen through the distorted prism of race.  No economic decision, no credit card purchase, no school punishment, nothing will be exempt from racial "balancing".  If black students behave worse than other groups, be they Asian, Hispanic or especially white, and those misbehaving students get disciplined more often, the schools will be punished.  If they are enrolled less often in programs for the gifted, the schools will be punished. 

I know I've lifted a lot from the NY Post article, but you should definitely go read the whole thing.  As author Paul Sperry concludes:
Such databases have never before existed. Obama is presiding over the largest consolidation of personal data in US history. He is creating a diversity police state where government race cops and civil-rights lawyers will micromanage demographic outcomes in virtually every aspect of society.

The first black president, quite brilliantly, has built a quasi-reparations infrastructure perpetually fed by racial data that will outlast his administration.


  1. Every day we edge closer and closer to Civil War II......

  2. Not to nitpick, but I believe we never actually had a Civil War I. The South fought to separate, not to change who controlled the US government. War between the States, War of Northern Aggression, War of Secession, but - in spite of the common, accepted definition of civil war - it was not the same as civil wars fought in most countries. [I did not originate this notion, but it resonated with me when I read it, and I believe it is accurate.]

    Forgive me if you already posted this SiG (I'm too lazy to go back and find the post I read), but under the title of "reparations" should come the $29 million dollars that DOJ is said to be providing the families of the eight victims of the black church shooting. This is as much as 29 times what was provided for the victims of other mass shootings, and I could not find any article saying that the victims/victims' families at Fort Hood received _anything_ from DOJ (Office for Victims of Crime).

    We pale-faces should be able to sue for the discrimination blatantly displayed by DOJ and so many other branches of government, but the Federal courts have been stuffed with flaming liberal judges by Obama, and the Supreme Court has already shown there is no justice there, either.

  3. Good points, Reg.

    I was just using popular language.

    Maybe we could more accurately call what's coming the "War of Federal Aggression"?

  4. Or perhaps the "Second War of Federal Aggression" would be more appropriate....

  5. Any bets on whether the "racial balancing" will be one way or two way? I haven't checked lately, but when I lived in the District of Corruption several decades ago the population was 78% black; wouldn't "racial balancing" require more whites, asians and hispanics....which, of course, would wind up displacing quite a bit of the black majority?

    This is an incompletely formed thought, but I keep coming back to assimilation. It's often said America is a country of immigrants, and their histories are of cultural assimilation over several generations, with Irish/Italian/Greek/Polish/Chinese etc. enclaves from early arrivals becoming future generations society-wide. Proud heritage mixed with basic Americanism is what comes to mind.

    Blacks do not appear to have assimilated in the same way. Most of their ancestors did not come to America voluntarily, unlike European immigrants, and they faced discrimination after their enslavement ended, perhaps notably more discrimination than European immigrants, who were thoroughly disliked, in some cases, violently so. White liberals have also wreaked havoc with black culture in the name of "fairness," resulting in destruction of the basic family and establishment of control over what has become a very dysfunctional culture.

    But...while European immigrants battled through such discrimination, and government interference (or at least non-support) with the goal of their children, and grandchildren, etc. having better lives and sharing in what it means to be American, blacks don't seem to have embraced the same path. I get the impression that blacks don't want to assimilate, and aren't interested in becoming part of American culture.

    Which makes it seem strange that Obama & Co. and the usual Assortment of Race Warlords have such an interest in forcing geographic and quasi-economic integration which is very different from social assimilation and the benefits it provides. If one were to write a prescription for thorough failure of social engineering, and the resultant strife it will create, it would be difficult to create a more plausible scenario.

    All that's needed for drjim's "Second War of Federal Aggression" to become reality is a Hillary Clinton-like President to continue the forcing of negative change on the American people. I suspect should that come to pass neither the activities nor the result will be similar to the first effort.

  6. "The agency proposes using nonwhite populations of 50% or higher as the threshold for classifying segregated areas."

    Which makes the entire state of California (39% white) segregated!

  7. Time to "go Greek". If the Fedgov can't collect the cash, it can't be used as a club. Learn what my parents did during the '30s - do more with less cash and work the underground economy.
    Or if you've read Rand - "Go Galt". I have as best I can.

  8. Under ideal conditions what should happen is people of various races and ethnic backgrounds would seek public office and honestly do the right things and life for everyone would improve and become fairer. What actually happens is because the playing field is so tilted and the laws encourage lame and stupid lawsuits only/mostly the scammers and frauds in minority communities seek office and they band together to loot the treasury and dispense favors in return for money and power. The result is Detroit, Chicago and lately one of the best examples Baltimore. That children from these very same minorities suffer by being shot, inferior education and lack of opportunities does't bother them but in fact simply presents another opportunity to raid the treasury and scam the tax payer. This is an endless free fall into dispair, economic failure and more disparity. This is the preferred "fix" ofthe rent seekers because it never "fixes" anything and must always be propped up with more and more money and free stuff for the dishonest politicians to steal and use to create even more power. Look at the amount of federal taxes that went into to Detroit to make it prosper and yet it is a hellhole. New Orleans is following suit and we watch Baltimore do the same. We watch a Baltimore mayor who was elected simply because she was a black female turn the city into a slum. We watch a young inexperienced Baltimore DA, who was selected simply because she was black and female, try to railroad 6 policemen and then we discover her entire family were drug dealers and dishonest policemen.

    My fear is this cannot be fixed. This long running scam will never go away and the underlying causes will always be present so it will slowly suck all the money and good will outof the system until it collapses. We, the stupid and easily guilted majority, seem unable to catch on to what is happening. If anyone, any politician dare speak thruth to this issue the left quickly brands them as racists and their own party quickly exterminates them. While at the same time the true radicals from the minority community says, writes and makes movies which put out the most outrageous racist phobic material ever heard in history without a peep from the left or the right. It is impossible that this allends well.

  9. Which makes the entire state of California (39% white) segregated!

    Hawaii, white, not hispanic, 23%
    Texas, white, not hispanic, 44%
    New Mexico, white, not hispanic, 39%
    Washington DC, white, not hispanic, 36%

    DC's demographics, like the cities of Detroit & Baltimare, are certainly due to the cities economic policies.

    The State's, and other unlisted territories, are largely due to long term human migration (predating statehood and ongoing).

    What are they going to do?
    Force white to move into these states and all others to move out?

    I don't seem to recall the exact term... but forced movement of populations based solely upon racial and ethnic makeup is a key characteristic of some really nasty political regimes...

  10. Yeah, DrJim, the War of Federal Aggression sounds good. WFA II, or maybe War of Federal Aggression, Redux :-)

  11. " What are they going to do?
    Force white to move into these states and all others to move out?"

    Nope! They'll have to subsidize them (like they will the non-whites) to move into a non-white area!

    What's fair for the goose is fair for the gander.
