The Mistakes of Presidents Past...

This PBS Documentary, Race: The Power of An Illusion (Part 3: The House We Live In) is excellent for grasping an understanding of modern day problems stemming from the FHA, GI Bill and Urban Renewal...I have learned that many of today's cities makeup are sociopolitical constructs reinforced that way by "redlining" practices and discrimination...Now the space that is associated with a color of skin is also charged monetarily and psychologically. It is also a good explanation of the modern real estate market...Right after WWII, lawmakers and real estate developers had the chance to build a truly equal society, but instead chose to flub it...Thanks for all the problems you have created that are exponentially difficult to manage at this juncture...Help Obama!
