  1. Homeownership is not a panacea for all the economic ills. In fact homeonership can be even more expensive then renting since now you are responsible if something breaks, not the landlord.

  2. This is laughable Liberal intellectual dishonesty at its best. After decades of imprisoning “black and brown people” into state- run institutional poverty, the new woke rhetorical desperation strategy is to talk about helping minorities create “generational wealth.” But it is the left that is responsible for creating generations of people dependent on government handouts. So which is it? Democrats continuing to entrap people in dead end poverty program, or helping them create life altering wealth through the free market. Whatever happened to the biblical adage: give them a fish, they will eat for a day, teach them to fish and they will eat for a lifetime
