“To end homelessness, we must end the systems that perpetuate it, and those begin with structural and systemic racism," said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who co-chaired the body that created the report.- says the person that runs the largest third world dump just north of us.

In order to receive a pallet full of cash wrapped in plastic similar to what Obama sent to Iran during his second term, all you have to do as a Social Justice Warrior is just mention systemic racism as the root cause. You don’t have to define it or substantiate any facts to causation. Just shy of a billion dollars ought to cleanse that systemic stench from the atmosphere, or at least help some of the execs in the foundation buy a few homes on the coast.

Have you notice the trend going on since this administration took over? We are talking BIG time extortion and shakedown of society not seen even at the level of Jesse Jackson during the 80’s. Oh, and talking about a billion dollars for these feelings that the left needs to acquire, what happened to the billion dollars that Gavin gave to the Communist ‘gone bust car maker’ in China? We are bleeding printed money in this country, but we’re not allowed to ask questions. Just poney up the increased taxes we are going to pay and close your eyes.

There was literally no substance reported in that article.

It was like a political buzzword bingo “got to find a way to win with homelessness and systemic racism in the same response”

I’m sure however we’ll soon be told $824m is not enough to stop the elusive systemic racist home stealing bandit.
