Otherwise known as 'steering'. Definition: The discriminatory practice by a real estate agent of maneuvering a client from a minority group away from considering a home in a white neighborhood.
NOTE PER WIKIPEDIA:
The Indian Removal Act was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830.
The Removal Act was strongly supported in the South, where states were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. In particular, Georgia, the largest state at that time, was involved in a contentious jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokee nation. President Jackson hoped removal would resolve the Georgia crisis. The Indian Removal Act was also very controversial. While Native American removal was, in theory, supposed to be voluntary, in practice great pressure was put on Native American leaders to sign removal treaties.
Someone once said: 'If you don't know your history, you're bound to repeat it.'
I'm living proof that 'social engineering' or 'steering' is still being used by our Federal Government, as well as my local City and County administration to manipulate this "society" I live in, currently.
Picture this: You're just living your life, day to day.... Then someone calls you and says: "You gotta move." :-O
No ifs, ands or buts about it. GO, get out, scram - skedaddle. You don't like it? Tough.
Then picture this: You gotta tell your kids that - due to no fault of their own - they gotta leave their friends, school and normal routine. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Pack your shit. Wipe your tears, hurry up, we gotta go.
Now, picture this: Alls well that ends well.... You're living your life, day to day.... Until you get another phone call: "You gotta move again." WHAT ??!!! :-O
"Oh, yeah, well..... See we have this GREAT master plan for downtown, we're gonna call it: 'Rockville Town Center'.. cobbled sidewalks, family friendly shops, bike trails... Plenty of nice, rich, white people - kinda like Georgetown (in DC); You know - an 'All-American City' .... Except, well - our master plan doesn't include YOU. Unfortunately, you don't fit the profile.... Sooooooooo..... GO. Get out, scram, skedaddle..... Bye bye.... Why are you still here ?!"
So, you sit your kids down and explain.... Due to no fault of their own........
