Want to Claim Racism? There’s a Federal App for That

America, as everyone and their racist white grandmother knows, is a very racist country. It’s so racist that the sheer density of racism has been founded and measured by racism scientists to be extremely racist.
That’s why the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which brought you the economic crisis and urban blight, now offers an App to let busy people concerned about racism report racism while on the go.
Are you writing up your Great Unamerican Novel novel about a disgruntled unemployed college grad who can’t find a job at Starbucks when you spot housing discrimination taking place across the street? There’s a Gov App for that.
In its ardent quest to even the playing field for minorities the Obama administration has unveiled a new housing discrimination application for mobile devices.
Financed by American taxpayers, the new housing discrimination app was developed by a special division inside the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with the help of a major information technology company headquartered in northern California.
The goal, according to a HUD announcement, is to provide the public with a quick and easy way to learn about housing rights and to facilitate the process of filing housing discrimination complaints. It also aims to remind the housing industry about its “responsibilities” under the Fair Housing Act, the 1968 law enacted to promote integrated housing—by combatting housing segregation—during the civil rights movement.
The new mobile app is simply the latest of many programs to help fulfill this mission. Several “civil rights advocacy organizations” will join forces with HUD to spread the word about the new mobile app and help “individuals pursue their housing rights.” This will equip minorities throughout the nation with the information they need to “combat housing discrimination,” according to an assistant HUD secretary in charge of fair housing and equal opportunity.
I think we’re all looking forward to the next app which enables you to report people critical of Obama.
