they don't need no stinking minimum wage, they have vouchers!!!<quoted text> So, the minimum wage has kept up with inflation then.
Pres. of all black Chicago community rails against section 8
Keith Tate, president of Chatham-Avalon Park Community Association. The community is 98% black. He says that the Chicago Housing Authority is ruining the community with section 8 vouchers.
Note: 88% of people receiving family housing from the Chicago Housing Authority are black. Most of the rest are Latino. Whites and Asians make up a fraction of 1% each.
For years sane people, including CofCC members, have been denounced by the press as “racist” for opposing section 8 vouchers. Now the Chicago Housing Authority has publicly admitted that the “racists” are correct in saying they increase crime. Apparently “white racists” aren’t the only ones who think section 8 vouchers are bad. Many black oppose them as well.
The Chicago Housing Authority now admits that section 8 voucher using bring dramatic increases in crime to a neighborhood. For years they have denied their was any increase in crime in the past. CHA spokeswoman Kellie O’Connell-Miller comically said that CHA had no way of knowing that section 8 residents caused an increase in crime, until an officially study was done.
The CHA is still claiming that tearing down its notorious housing projects caused an overall decrease in crime. However they do not factor in that the population of the city decreased by 7% during the time period they are looking at. There is also a nationwide trend in the majority black urban areas where the sheer volume of crime makes it unlikely that the lesser crimes are investigated. Therefore, people have just stopped bothering to report them any more.
