Government entities should assist all people residing in the area, regardless of the person’s race, nationality, religion, gender, and age. Discrimination is considered as an offense under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and those who will be found guilty of this unlawful act will be punished for their actions.
Both Palmdale and Lancaster cities have been sued for racial discrimination after they allegedly failed to provide housing subsidies to Latino and black families.
According to reports, two residents filed the case, which is aimed in preventing the cities from creating and implementing policies which are unjust and “harassing”.
The case claimed that the defendants acted unfairly towards minority families by allowing unneeded sweeps and they also discouraged participants of the Section 8 voucher from moving in the two cities.
Government entities and even the state itself should provide equal protection and assistance to all people because failure to do so is punishable under different anti-discrimination laws.
