Editor,

South San Francisco’s plan to give preference to “people of color” in hiring and availability of affordable housing is clearly in violation to California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act, as well as Proposition 209. By publicly announcing their intentions (as reported in the Daily Journal on Aug. 30) they are inviting lawsuits by any white person who doesn’t get a job or affordable housing they applied for. This could cost the city dearly. Its hard to imagine they could be so reckless.

Agreed, Mr. Donnelly, I’d recommend multiple lawsuits against SSF. As they’ve shown with all their funding of "woke" commissions and committees, along with their potential free money program, SSF appears to have money to burn from their deep pockets. Newly minted lawyers looking for a cause – as Larry the Cable Guy says, “Git-r-done!”

Yes Tim, it is called reverse-red-lining. Those of us now called white supremacists are being vilified for ostensibly supporting red lining in prior decades. It seems OK now that the shoe is on the other foot.
