With voucher system broken, Ann Arbor needs real action on affordable housing -
So, for those who care about poor people: It's absurd to continue to allow generation after generation of poor kids to grow up under conditions that allow only the very smartest, luckiest and most connected to scratch and claw their way out of poverty.

And for those who are unmoved by the plight of the less fortunate, who aren’t driven by tenderheartedness, but by the laws of nature and the free market: Continuing to perpetuate a vicious cycle that has clear, adverse economic effects on everyone, including rich folks, would be, frankly, stupid.

It's Official: Single-Family Zoning Is Making Our City's Neighborhoods More White - Slog - The Stranger
Exclusionary zoning—which makes small-scale multifamily units like rowhouses or small courtyard apartment buildings illegal in the majority of our city—is making our city whiter while reinforcing Seattle’s segregationist policies of the past.

“The impacts of redlining, racially restrictive covenants, and disinvestment remain today and perpetuate racial segregation in Seattle,” the Seattle Planning Commission (SPC) authors write. “The growing economic exclusivity of detached housing in single-family zones contributes to disparity along racial lines by continuing the legacy of excluding all but those who have the economic resources to buy homes” (emphasis added).
