Wouldn't it be nice if I were able to approve or protest any prospective neighbors moving on to my block? Maybe I'd prefer older folks without a lot of noisy kids playing in the streets. Or, I could object to large families with lots of driving aged young adults and their friends zooming through the neighborhood. Or maybe I'd prefer everyone to share my ethnic or religious background so our decorations wouldn't conflict. With property values to consider, I'd prefer only upper middle class folks who could keep up their homes and the landscaping like I do. As the Fair Housing Act in Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits this, I guess I'd have to says what gives us the right to exclude this group of men and the people who support them?
