Notes on Frank Morales, DisinfoGuy

An interesting forum post by Lurquacious casting doubts on the Spatial deconcentration in DC article published by Midnight Notes on the US Kerner Commission Report which followed black urban rioting, and more generally on the writings of Frank Morales.

Spatial deconcentration in D.C. - Yulanda Ward

Cartoon by Ron Cobb

1981 article about a US Government housing policy - conceived in the aftermath of the 1960s ghetto riots - arguing that the policy was aimed at removing concentrations of potentially rebellious blacks and other poor people from the inner city and disperse them in small groups to the suburbs. Serious issues have been raised about some of the facts of this article, which are discussed here, but we reproduce it for reference.
