Feds Force Westchester to Take Government Money to House Minorities [Scandal]

Oh no, Westchester will be forced to house black people! All because they were forced to apply for federal housing funds...? And that money was supposed to go to providing affordable housing without furthering segregation and they didn't do that.

So while this Times article on the coming flood of 630 working black or Hispanic families into Mamaroneck and Larchmont is all entirely factually true it does kind of stoke the flames of crazy racist resentment that are now raging in the comments on that post, by making it sound like the feds are shipping black people to rich neighborhoods to punish them for their success and not making the wrongdoing by Westchester officials quite clear.

But the insane resentment of white internet readers is certainly not (entirely) the fault of the Times and we don't mean to imply otherwise.
