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! 🙄
