Real estate websites Redfin, Realtor.com will no longer display crime data ‘due to racial bias concerns’

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens

The woke culture is not only a facilitator for crime, but it also protects criminals and endangers citizens. Two popular homebuying websites, Zillow and Redfin, are the latest companies to kowtow to a weak and sensitive culture.

Redfin and Realtor.com both “put forth announcements on the same day back in December that their sites will no longer display or gather any crime data for the neighborhoods covered within them due to racial bias concerns” reports Steadfastandloyal.com.

In a blog post, CEO of Realtor.com David Doctorow wrote the company is attempting to “break down those hurdles” of discrimination in homeownership. “For example, earlier this month, we removed the crime map layer from all search results on Realtor.com to rethink the safety information we share on Realtor.com and how we can best integrate it as part of a consumer’s home search experience,” stated Doctorow.

“In the weeks and months ahead, we plan to examine closely what neighborhood safety means for buyers and renters who use our site so we can reimagine how we integrate safety data on Realtor.com. Our goal is to ensure we are providing consumers with the most valuable, fair and accurate neighborhood data so they can make informed decisions about where they want to rent or purchase their next home,” added Doctorow.

In a blog post on the same day, the chief growth officer for Redfin, Christian Taubman, wrote Redfin was entirely aware that people want to know “whether they’ll feel safe in a given home or neighborhood,” but “the data available don’t allow us to speak accurately to that question, and given the long history of redlining and racist housing covenants in the United States there’s too great a risk of this inaccuracy reinforcing racial bias.”

“We believe that Redfin–and all real estate sites–should not show neighborhood crime data,” Taubman stated.

Taubman went on to inaccuracies of crime reporting as an excuse for not adding the information to its website. “In the 2019 survey, people reporting crimes were more likely to describe their offender as young, male, and Black than would be expected given the representation of those groups in the population,” he said.

Taubman concluded, “in this case we’re confident that the crime data that are available today ought not to be on Redfin or any other real estate site.”

    Could it be because the statistics show that the crimes are committed by young, male and black people? How stupid.

    Redfin & Realtor.com know that removing crime data will facilitate people moving into crime ridden areas where the innocent new residents will be seriously injured or killed. Those homes will again be empty requiring yet more services from Redfin & Realtor.com to fill them, making Redfin & Realtor.com richer.

    Hard to be more cold blooded vampires than virtue signalling douches Redfin & Realtor.com

    I will never again use that scum.

    In case the new home buyer doesn’t already know, crime data will tell you how close you are to where Blacks hang out to do what they do the best, steal and attack you. The moves in my lifetime have been for one reason only, “White flight”. Or in real estate jargon, “The neighborhood won’t hold up over time”. Another lesson in deductive logic, if you’re White and concerned about crime, don’t move to any Democrat run shit hole city. They’re cesspools seething with Black racism, peaking with record crime numbers, have police forces that have been defunded, many have progressive liberal Black DA’s as well as progressive liberal Black mayors. Multiple ‘red flags’.

    That is horrible! It seems to indicate that crime indicates the racial makeup of a community. It also appears to to protect criminals while making it hard for families to choose safe housing. Also, what about minorities who to live in safe neighborhoods? They are having that choice taken from them too! Crime statistics are about crime-not race! 🙄

Pelosi Snaps When Asked About Baby Formula Shortage

Published

Nancy Pelosi

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) snapped when asked about comments from Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who criticized President Biden’s decision to send baby formula to the southern border as the United States suffers from a baby formula shortage.

“Joe Biden continues to put America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border as American families face empty shelves,” Stefanik wrote on Twitter. “This is unacceptable. American mothers and their babies shouldn’t suffer because of the #BidenBorderCrisis.”

Pelosi was asked about Stefanik’s comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

“As usual, her statement is totally irresponsible,” Pelosi said. “Babies are crying. We need to get them food. And the president has — now what we’re doing this week in the Congress is, again, Bobby Scott, chair of the Education and Labor Committee, that’s the jurisdiction that will lower some of the regulations, et cetera, so that it’s easier to buy it… We must do something as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, and use caution, for these babies. But we have to move quickly to do that. And part of this is, again, the supply chain issue.”

Stefanik responded to Pelosi on Twitter, writing: “As usual, your LEADERSHIP is totally irresponsible. Babies are crying. We need to get them food.”

Biden’s Incoming Press Secretary Laughs When Asked About Baby Formula Crisis

Karine Jean-Pierre

On Wednesday, incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the infant formula shortage is a “top priority” for the Biden administration but laughed as she admitted to reporters that she didn’t know who was in charge of handling the crisis of mothers being unable to feed their babies.

As noted by RNC Research on Twitter, “In 25 states, 40-50% of baby formula products are OUT OF STOCK. In 5 states, over 50% of formula is OUT OF STOCK.”

“On baby formula, there have been severe shortages throughout much of the country over many weeks and months but particularly the last couple of weeks, what is the administration doing? What can you do?” a reporter asked Jean-Pierre.

“That’s something certainly we’ve been tracking,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Ensuring that infant formula is safe and available for families across the country is a top priority for the White House and this administration. We know that Abbott’s voluntary recall of infant formula products has led to some Americans being unable to access other critical medical food supply. This is an urgent issue that the FDA and White House are working 24/7 to address.”

“Who is running point on the formula issue at the White House? You mentioned the White House is involved,” another reporter asked.

“At the White House, I don’t know,” Jean-Pierre said while laughing. “I can find out for you and get you a person who is running point.”

Jean-Pierre is currently the Biden administration’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary, but she will officially replace Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary on Friday, May 13.
