Suburban Privilege

Democrats think that the suburbs are racist and a vestige of white privilege and have long advocated for a change in the invisible boundaries that divide our communities. How? Federal funding. Democrats advocate changing zoning laws to mandate low income housing be transferred from urban to suburban areas. This was an idea made popular by President Obama known as the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” rules (“AFFH”). It has been proposed that Biden would “[I]mplement the Obama-Biden Administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule (AFFH) requiring communities receiving certain federal funding to proactively examine housing patterns and identify and address policies that have discriminatory protections” by Executive Order to increase the supply and availability of affordable housing where there has been “long-standing economic and racial inequities in our housing markets.”
