HUD Plays the Race Card in Lawrenceville

On June 19, residents of majority-black Lawrenceville, Virginia lined the streets and packed a town meeting to protest a backroom deal between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and nearby St. Paul’s College to fill the historic institution’s vacant buildings with 500 illegal minors from Latin America.  The tiny town made a big noise, with over 1,000 people showing up to confront government officials.  Essie Workie, regional administrator for HHS, finally backed down the next day, put the deal on hold, and apologized to the crowd.

Workie’s apology didn’t mean much.

Lawrenceville, Brunswick County, and the sheriff are now being sued by St. Paul’s and a Virginia fair housing group for discrimination.  The entities also filed a civil rights complaint against HHS for failing to honor their $160,000-per-month agreement with St. Paul’s to shelter the illegals.

From the complaint:

Housing Opportunities Made Equal of Virginia, Inc. (HOME) and St. Paul’s College announce the filing of a federal housing discrimination complaint at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) against the Town of Lawrenceville, Brunswick County, and Brunswick County Sheriff Brian Roberts. The complaint alleges that participants of the Unaccompanied Alien Children’s (UAC) program were denied an equal housing opportunity and subjected to discriminatory statements based on their national origin, race, and/or color.

Purported concerns by these individuals are grounded in false stereotypes about Latinos and reflect discrimination based on race, color, and/or national origin.

HOME encourages officials to reconsider their opposition for this arrangement and propose a solution that does not violate federal fair housing laws. Not only was this action a violation of federal fair housing law, it also denied the community a much needed boost to its economic activity and a path out of the crushing debt facing the College.

HUD is punishing Lawrenceville for not breaking the law when it comes to aiding and abetting illegal aliens.  Moreover, HOME  is offering this community, where the median income is around $26,000, a monetary incentive to harbor criminals voluntarily. 

Blacks need to face it.  Latinos are the newest group to get all the aid and positive press coverage they want – they are the future of the Democrat Party.  The liberal leftist media rushes to judgment against whites on behalf of teenage thugs and the DOJ but is noticeably blasé when the story involves illegal border-crossers championed by La Raza.  Move over, Tea Party: blacks are the new racists.

African-Americans wanted Obama for president because he looked like them, and they got him.  Not once, but twice.  Now those in Lawrenceville, Virginia will find out what it feels like to be labeled a racist by this administration.
