Kamala Harris to Spend $100 Billion to Help Minorities Buy Houses


Kamala Harris has one thing in common with the other 134 Democratic presidential candidates. She spends money like a trophy wife.

Besides wanting trillions spent on reparations for people who were never slaves, she now wants $100 billion to finance the buying of houses for Blacks. But, one thing voters need to understand is that none of these huge “freebies” will ever get enshrined into law. There is simply no money with which to do it and when push comes to shove, many Democrats would oppose them as well.

The Republicans are almost a lock to keep the Senate with most of the vulnerable seats now belonging to the Democrats.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., announced Saturday that she would invest $100 billion of federal money into housing assistance for black families as part of an effort to close the racial wealth gap in the United States if elected president.

“After generations of discrimination, it’s time to give Black families a real shot at homeownership,” Harris tweeted on Saturday.

While appearing at Essence’s Global Black Economic Forum, she emphasized the role of homeownership in driving the growth of wealth in the U.S. According to Harris’ campaign, she would help 4 million home buyers through down payment and closing-cost assistance — granting up to $25,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

 

“If we eliminate racial wealth disparities in homeownership rates, median Black wealth would grow $32,113 per household, and the wealth gap between Black and white households would shrink 31 percent,” her campaign said.

The program would target residents in red-lined communities — areas the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation has dissuaded lenders from investing in —  which her campaign identified as a culprit behind wealth disparities.
