USF Law Professor Tim Iglesias on SF's affordable and preferential housing  | USF in the News | Scoop.it

“The city of San Francisco is in a quandary. Like many big cities, it faces an affordability crisis, and city leaders are looking for a way to build housing to help low- and middle-income residents stay there. But one proposal to give current residents of a historically African-American neighborhood help to do that has run afoul of the Obama administration.”

“That leaves the city in a tough spot, says Tim Iglesias, a University of San Francisco law professor. "Yes, there is an irony in this and the city is, in its own sense, trying to turn this neighborhood preferences, which have been used to discriminate, on its head to enable it to help maintain diversity in the city," says Iglesias.”
