Non-White Democrats in Virginia Seek to Outlaw White Flight and Creation of White Suburbs, by Paul Kersey - The Unz Review
society governed by extreme egalitarianism, freedom of association is but a
pipe-dream. Our elite, and those elected to govern and dictate our lives,
utilize diversity and multiculturalism (non-white legal immigration/refugees)
as a weapon to bludgeon whats left of the Historic America Nation.
Democrats in Virginia may
override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing,
to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.
The measure could quickly
transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be
built on suburban lots in neighborhoods previously consisting of quiet streets
and open green spaces. Proponents of “upzoning” say the changes are necessary
because suburbs are bastions of segregation and elitism, as well as bad for the
The move, which aims to provide
“affordable housing,” might be fiercely opposed by local officials throughout
the state, who have deliberately created and preserved neighborhoods with
particular character — some dense and walkable, others semi-rural and private —
to accommodate people’s various preferences.
But Democrats tout a
state-level law’s ability to replace “not in my backyard” with “yes, in your
House Delegate Ibraheem Samirah,
a Democrat, introduced six housing measures Dec. 19, coinciding
with Democrats’ takeover of the state legislature in November.
“Single-family housing zones
would become two-zoned,” Samirah told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Areas
that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part
in helping out.”
“The real issues are the areas
in between very dense areas which are single-family zoned. Those are the areas
that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a
bubble,” he said.
He said suburbs were “mostly
white and wealthy” and that their local officials — who have historically been
in charge of zoning — were ignoring the desires of poor people, who did not
have time to lobby them to increase suburban density.
In response to a question about
whether people who bought homes in spacious suburbs have valid reasons, not
based on discrimination, for preferring to live that way — including a love for
nature and desire to preserve woods and streams — he said: “Caring about nature
is very important, but the more dense a neighborhood is, the more energy
efficient it is.”
He said if local officials seek
to change requirements like setbacks to make it impossible to build dense
housing in areas zoned to preserve a nature feel, “if they make setbacks to
block duplexes, there’d have to be a lawsuit to resolve whether those zoning provisions
It quoted Alex Baca, a
Washington, D.C., urbanist with the site Greater Greater Washington, saying
that single-family zoning is a tool for wealthy whites to maintain segregated neighborhoods and that the
abolition of low-density neighborhoods is necessary for equity.
CityLab acknowledged that
“residents might reasonably desire to keep the neighborhoods they love the way
they are,” but said that implementing the law at the state level makes sure
that those concerns can be more easily ignored.
“By preempting the ability of
local governments to set their own restrictive zoning policies, the state
policy would circumnavigate the complaints of local NIMBY homeowners who want
to block denser housing,” it wrote.
restoration of restrictive covenants would bring back sanity to the USA
overnight (which is why the NAACP spent 30+ years waging legal war on
them, culminating in Shelley vs. Kraemer
decision in 1948), but this would require individual white
people to admit they have collective interests worth fighting for and
defending. We once did this, in a nation long forgotten: it was called the
United States of America.
