levittown today is over 95 percent very few minority families living there. when fix the damage that was done we just allowed all those inequalities to continue but said from this day forward we can't discriminate. it didn't fix it all of these policies and practices these systems. federal government state government local government. they come verge to sort of create concentrated poverty by the time we reach the fifty's and sixty's so that creates a situation where many urban areas you have like what george clooney would call you know chocolate cities in the little suburbs sadnesses this because the white house said that's a temporary thing there's a lot of the city. we've got to get yeah every time i don't need to get l.a. . working and. going to get out you
will be. contributing to tell you. there is no clue gram a promise that a president can bake think that better the government going to come in they did it anyway they wanted to do that yes that was it. the condition of black veterans and white veterans diversion even though when they returned from the war they were economically similar families. public housing then became a black phenomenon. people fall into this category they have to live where society is pushed. it's. just not. in your nature. down on people constantly
telling. us. cities and to adequately service neighborhoods that were heavily concentrated with african-americans garbage collection wasn't a picked up as frequently streets were it repair this well the conditions deteriorated and the urban areas became slums. i would like to rub america's nose in this is say take a look at it if you want to reject it boy but i certainly would it would hate to think that anybody thought i said it would given up hope what i'm really saying is the society has failed the hope of the people who live here and struggle here that's what i'm really saying they're going to go on struggling anyway whether we fail or succeed. but the same time you have concentration you also have clearance you have how a construction which is destroying black communities i was oftentimes in urban areas a built did in the middle of black communities so there's
where all old black people are all those loci is where they gone up root in our neighborhood there did their messing with our unity it takes 10 years to really reaches out they know what to do in a systematic genocide. systematic as well as african american families who are displaced had to move somewhere so those families are given section 8 housing vouchers the idea behind section 8 is fabulous it's exactly what one would hope is that people who are impoverished have an opportunity to move into neighborhoods
that are not impoverished and fortunately for black americans it doesn't work that way. a large reason for that is you can still legally discriminate against someone for using a section 8 voucher so landlords and most suburbs would not accept section 8 housing factors and that's perfectly legal. why homeowners deathly afraid of a black person moving next to them because blackness is associated with lower home values we share your presence in the neighborhood c c you don't undermine the value of our homes and we're concerned we're going to move out before it becomes common knowledge that there's a family in the area. it's nothing personal all it never really is it was tercel but i feel real that we grew up in philadelphia actually originally and we were in an all black neighborhood in my life change when we moved to south jersey not far from some of the levittown type of neighborhoods. and when we came in the police
had to come in with us because people were throwing things at our house and terrorizing our house at night. and we moved there because we wanted a place that was integrated and we just wanted to raise our standard of living and it was the strength of my parents that said this is where we're going to be. do you think and really moving here with the community as a whole. in what way i think that well the property values well i mean to go down if they are allowed to move in here in any numbers do you think them are 11. i don't think. property. and i think purely white not. well as
a result of all these policies we created a segregated system and because we've forgotten now this entire history of how it happened. white families believe that they got where they are simply by their own hard work and determination to succeed in the middle class life. but they don't understand is that their parents could have came as an immigrant from a white country and immediately had access to loans and the ability to move into white neighborhoods and black americans whose families had been citizens for generations could not. and so it's not saying that their families didn't work hard but it is saying that their families benefit from a great deal of affirmative action to get where they are. white americans don't see what it's like to live in these communities. and so because of that they're unable to connect with what it is like to be in these areas that have been deprived of every type of opportunity. now how do these communities get seen they go. for
decades in this festering situation and these areas and segregated communities an event completely abandoned em suddenly we see them only when they burn something artists lead. to keep. it light condition that they understand and the map it doesn't even want but many legs . l.m.a. killed it is still just killing the teachers but it is safe and all its merit elite lead
l.n.h. we had not the regular eagles that's why we must them if we're to do something about the dangers that face us no. it shouldn't be that hard to understand why that becomes kind of the ultimate outcry because it's the only way that these committees become visible to most americans. as it is a dead parrot is going to let mr traitors believe. that as. bad. as those weapons of mass communication is already. present and in that way this. is a test of end of entity is. the basis for the global leader i'm going to have an agent come to interviews on e.g. . stick to your.

he has a. regional plan from the university of minnesota. please give that. thank you. thank you. a little bit about our organization strong towns our ization is now evolved into a national movement of people trying to reconfigure their communities to be more financially sound. post world war 2 america the financing mechanisms of it act very much like a ponzi scheme you had this immediate sugar high with this. long term liability kind of hanging out there in the future and the last generation the one that's going to pick up the bill. we prayed on our fellow americans just so we could keep
the growth going and nobody stopped to consider the impact that this was going to have on real people and real families. finding foreclosures. i just saw that. the united states was a real estate so i was determined. it was so much fun when we were making money company had season tickets to the lakers right behind. leonardo dicaprio literally right in front of us and when he used to date. 15 years old right in front of hair is hanging over the back of her seat. dad. playing with. anyway. but.
there's a new product that started to flood the market 125 percent. and when i 1st started seeing i said this is a recipe for disaster. or with too many bills too many monthly payments. to 120 percent of the value or less your mortgage they went after the payment. they did get a $50000.00. that. wasn't a home improvement it was a signature long and you could do whatever you want i just thought it was an exceedingly irresponsible. loan product. i took advantage of me. taking someone come on. a
set of eyes no no. the lenders got greedy and they figured ok we exhausted the $125.00 potential pool. let's go make it super easy to get purchase money now if you were to ask me with a perfect credential zydeco. i honestly couldn't tell you may i help you sir i. need a quick answer on a new home loan. stated income stated employment stated stated stated which means whatever the borrower says is factual is recently as a 1997 you had to put 20 percent down and he had to struggle to save that kind of money if asked for 5 years and a busboy from a local coffee shop can buy the same house for nothing you have to verify your credit history credit we don't have it if we can't pay cash we do without.
but you say. it could run the entire american economy i mean or would this country need to know more than we could pay back. in order for the house of cards to stay standing it has to get bigger so the guy that's in the 3 better one and a half bath house he's got to move up to the 4 better to bath house. to house a car just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and it's just all on fake valuations. yeah at that point the home did absolutely become a vehicle for excess home prices rising from the case shiller index i look at it out there and i say yes this looks good it's much better than expected you look at the number and say. nobody knows where home prices are going to do. people are increasingly speculative when they buy a house
a major concern is how much can i sell this to someone else at the other end it can be called the greater fool theory maybe i'm a fool the buys that's a big house but i'm going to. to an even greater fool. there were people who thought 50 or 100 years ago that home prices should decline with. the reason is they wear out. don't expect to gain the expected to lose value that was a common view in the past. we have come as a society to place a tremendous amount of value on the home itself. and the bigger the home the better . it's interesting because living in the houses were meant to evolve and change as families evolved and changed over time.
the idea was that this home would be liveable all your life you could have one bedroom or 3 bedrooms depending on what your needs were at the time and this area was an extension of the living room or it could be closed off and become a bed very. close here. as you're going to be enclosed here. you might enter. the hall. so i have a. better hallway know where all the entrances are to the better. so it could be a one bedroom or 3 bedroom right now we create that one bedroom here and there really are one bedroom that could be partitioned with a rolling wall so it will become 2 bedrooms. there was an
extension of the dynamic coming out of postwar idea of what the house provided wasn't really about the upscaling or the supersizing of the house and so that relationship between the growth. of the physical house was still somehow invalidates subsequently people began to make the scale shift where the houses became just warraich. i'm in love with this. hope in a fight because. i don't think it is. a 5000 square feet only one staircase i'm going to visit that staircase. feeling it's very attractive.
to see if. it's really more suited for grandma she doesn't really want to have a deep. think it means 12 foot ceilings on a mcmansion they're going the way that. people want to buy what they need and they don't want any extra and this has so much square footage of wasted space. they might get away with one more sale but in the years to come it's going to be tougher and tougher. on. there's just tremendous economic dependence on this idea that we can keep. lots and they have to keep marching across the landscape because it's a huge part of the economy depends on being.
yes so our property line is just basically the white picket fence all the way around. back up to there. so we're going to. our garden over here and a chicken coop over there gigi's a grand champion. not so much. so this whole industry of easy quick money for property did not end at the retail borrower. were exposed to these funds. so these companies were going in and buying up swaths of land from these farmers at ridiculous prices just given them enough money for their great grandchildren to retire and it was just so hard to say no. to anything and that's where you see all of the citrus farms in the inland empire gone.
the isolation of the full community. are you going the right way or are you being led so. direct. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depths. or remain in the shallows. kind of financial survival job today with all the money laundering 1st to visit this cash into 3 different. budget is a good start well we have our 3 banks all set up here maybe something in europe something in america something overseas in the cayman islands it will pull these banks are complicit in their club congress to decide to give mccall and say hey i'm ready to do some serious. ok let's see how we did while we. watch for
