Supreme Court Weaponizes Federal Housing Scheme

If you thought the Supreme Court’s latest Obamacare ruling was a complete fiasco wait until you read the latest decision these wise, black robed justices have handed down from the mountain top.  Breitbart reported the little reported and known Texas Housing v. Inclusive Communities:

Now, plaintiffs do not need to show there was actual racial discrimination, or an intent to discriminate. Instead, they can just point to the racial makeup of a neighborhood and infer that discrimination must have happened in order to bring a lawsuit and force communities to re-engineer themselves.

The Court comforts itself by claiming that racial quotas still cannot be used to integrate communities. In fact, it has weaponized racial quotas in the hands of the federal government.
It is perhaps just a coincidence that the Texas Housing decision comes as the Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced a policy designed to pressure wealthy communities to build “affordable” housing in their midst.

The goal in Texas Housing, however, is not just to diversify neighborhoods, but to uncover what Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, calls “unconscious prejudice.”

This is unbelievable.  Has the Supreme Court become an arm of the Obama administration?  It makes you wonder.
