Buffalo, NY, Determined to Be the Sixth Most Segregated Region in the United States
According to a newly released report, relative to the latest Census Report, Buffalo, NY, is the Sixth Most Segregated Region in the U.S. and while that's BAD NEWS, President Obama's Administration is vowing to change that with a New Desegregation Rule.
The new federal desegregation rule, which will require communities to consider patterns of segregation and ways to reduce it in their zoning and planning decisions, faces as many obstacles as a poor black family looking for affordable housing in one of America’s wealthiest suburbs.
Congressional Republicans are refusing to fund the effort. Fair housing advocates, while praising the plan, say that much more needs to be done on the local level to stop the ongoing resegregation of neighborhoods into black and white.
