Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is back with her attention grabbing by proposing a $100 billion plan which would help black people purchase homes.
The comments were made at an event in New Orleans where she called on America to “deal with the racial wealth gap.”
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
The program would provide up to $25,000 in the form of grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help pay down payments or closing costs. The grants would help an estimated 4 million individuals or families who make up to $100,000, or $125,000, respectively, and are looking to rent or buy homes in high-cost areas.
The plan would offer financial literacy programs as well.
“A typical black family has just $10 of wealth for every $100 held by a white family,” Harris said. “So we must right that wrong and, after generations of discrimination, give black families a real shot at homeownership — historically one of the most powerful drivers of wealth in our country.”
The Daily Caller continues:
The California senator also said on Saturday that she would improve anti-discrimination lending laws, HUD’s fair housing program and the Fair Credit Reporting Act so credit scores include rent, phone and utility payments.
Harris is campaigning largely on fighting discrimination in the United States through policy ideas such as Medicare for All and banning private prisons.
The candidate recently flip-flopped on her stance regarding busing, a 1970s-era policy that called for the transportation of black students to majority white schools and vice-versa in an effort to desegregate communities.
The policy idea became a popular topic of debate after Harris accused fellow candidate Joe Biden of inciting discrimination by voting against busing in the 70s during the first Democratic debate on June 27. (RELATED: Kamala Harris Selling ‘That Little Girl Was Me’ T-Shirts)
Only July 4, however, Harris backtracked on the campaign trail in Des Moines, Iowa, when she said she thinks of “busing as being in the toolbox of what is available and what can be used for the goal of desegregating America’s schools.” Harris’s debate position suggested a federal role in mandating the practice.
Harris has been doing anything she can to get attention including lying. During the second Democratic debate, Harris made an effort to slam former Vice President Joe Biden by accusing him of racist practices in his past as a politician.
The Senator lectured Biden, claiming that she was in the second integrated class in Berkley. “There are moments in history where states fail to preserve the civil rights of all people," she also noted.
Harris' claim of being in the second integrated class in Berkeley, California appears to be a total lie. Check out what the Gateway Pundit reported.
Harris said she was a student in only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools.
Kamala’s parents were successful professionals. Kamala went to school in Berkeley for only 2 years. She then moved with her mother at age seven to Canada where she attended grade school and high school.
Kamala Harris was born in 1964.
She claims she was only the second class to integrate at the Berkeley public schools.
Actually the classrooms in Berkeley were already integrated in 1963 — before she was born.
Kamala Harris was only off by about 20 years.
