Full story: Inside Bay Area

Visit a predominately African-American or Latino neighborhood in any major metropolitan area and you will more than likely find the eyesore of foreclosed homes.

Well,no. That isn't what happened.

Back in 2007 Barney Frank, and Christopher Dodd, both Democrats, passed legislation forcing banks to give mortgages to people they knew could not repay their loans.
That legislation is the cause of today's recession and housing market implosion.
The banks were not preditors, they were forced to make the loans and layoffs had nothing to do with it, there are just some people who are not currently credit worthy who should not have mortgages.
It's a prime example of governmentmeddling where it doesn't belong. For more facts read "Reckless Endangerment" by Gretchen Morgansen of the New York Times.
