Diversity Loving Liberals In Seattle... Not In My Backyard

You got to love liberal Seattle..

Many residents in Seattle's affluent Magnolia neighborhood are fuming over plans to house homeless people near Discovery Park at soon-to-be-closed Fort Lawton.

At one community meeting, some residents wondered whether homeless housing at the fort would attract wife-beaters, sex offenders and crack addicts. They rolled their eyes when city officials asserted that such housing increases property values. They worried about the impact on schools and scoffed at the idea of homeless people shopping at the closest grocery — which sells pheasant-and-rosemary pâté for $9.99 and ground coffee for up to $18 a pound.

"We're the ones who live here, and we want to have a nice, safe neighborhood to live in," Donald Raz, a King County deputy prosecutor and Magnolia resident, said later.

Like most affluent neighborhoods in Seattle, Magnolia doesn't have any housing for homeless people mainly because land is too expensive for social-service agencies to buy.

According to Wikipedia, so you know it may or may not be complete bs, Magnolia's demographics are such:
As of the census[1] of 2000, there were 19,156 people, 9,077 households, and 4,828 families residing in the neighborhood. There are 9,416 housing units. The racial makeup of the neighborhood was 87.4% White, 5.8% Asian, 1.6% African American, 0.6% Native American, 0.3% Pacific Islander, 1.0% from other races, and 3.2% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.3% of the population.

And of course the residents in Magnolia donate 3-1 to Democrats.

They are all for helping the homeless, just keep those wife-beaters, sex offenders and crack addicts away from overwhelmingly white, liberal neighborhood.

This just proves, yet again, that the collective stupidity of the liberal, whiny, knee-jerk, "bleeding-heart", Anti-America/Anti-American Democrat Party, is surpassed ONLY by their mind numbing intellectual dishonesty.

But this should be a surprise to who...?

That is a pointless analysis. I don't care what neighborhood you live in, no one wants homeless or tent cities. They are unsightly and undesireable. Do you want one in your backyard AndrewsDad?
