Yep, the headline was for shock value. But that’s exactly how many Homeowners Association treat anyone in a minority group. Don’t believe it? Look at the deed to your own home. The chances are amazing your deed will reflect a history of bigotry against Negros, Jews, Orientals, and other minority groups. In fact, bigotry against minorities was absolutely the foundation of the modern Homeowners Association movement. It’s no coincidence the modern HOA movement was born just a few months after the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

In the case linked below, a homosexual in Rancho Mirage, Riverside, California was slurred during a fight at an HOA meeting. And he’s suing for $25,000 in damages. The stunner is that he’s not suing for 25 million in damages. He’s more likely to win the latter than the former.

But HOA bias against gays isn’t new, as documented in my book, Neighbors At War! It’s just one of many reasons for stealing the assets of another homeowner to put into the personal bank account of some well-connected board member. And it couldn’t happen without the complicity of the out-of-control American tort system.

Believe it.
