I am a first generation American. My ancestors are Russian and Kazhak. I dont think they did any wrongdoing against black people considering there arent any black people there.

I would not approve. People can live wherever they want, don't try to force change.

Here we go again, I was waiting to see how long that would take. Maybe your ancestors, not mine.

My ancestors were rounded up, forced onto boats and cast adrift in the Atlantic Ocean.

My ancestors were murdered by the thousands in Soviet Russia.

Find somewhere else to troll.

Its more Social-Economic then Race.

Most people want to live around, and have neighbors who are in the same Social-Economic Range.

College Graduate professionals don't normally hang out with Minimum wage earners.

The homes/lots/taxes etc can not be afforded by Minimum wage earners, so are the Non/Profits is going to do a ongoing support of the utilities, taxes, upkeep of the home?

Take a notice to where Habit for Humanities builds it homes, Most of the home are sold to working class (But above min wage) families, The lots they build them tend near people (but a step up from) of the same Social-Economic groups.

The nonprofit will take two families and place them in a house in the upper middle class areas of the county. The tradeoff for the lack of space would be a better education, and not being barred from adequate resources, such as fresher food in grocery stores and more outlets of recreation.

The reason for starting this nonprofit is because too many Hispanics and Blacks are barred from the resources that would allow them to rise in American society, ie, their neighborhoods being targeted by the police, getting a criminal record for loitering and not being able to ever recover from that because they never received the education on how to present themselves in court.

This nonprofit would not apply to poor whites, although they could utilize it too, because they do not go through the same withholding of resources as poor minorities that live in urban neighborhoods. Poor whites generally live in rural communities uninterrupted by authorities. They too have communities that foster development because those who maintain the community, the police, are from the same neighborhood as those that live in the community. This is not the case in Hispanic and black neighborhoods.

That's nice. Some programs aimed for achievement do exist!

Yes, it is a program that has been around for decades and many have gone on to do great things. I believe that Deval Patrick the former governor of Massachusetts was in this program, as an example. Deval Patrick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
