Head of Tenants Group Claims Homegrown Oregonians Are ‘White Racists’ & Should Be Put Out of Landlord Business

Margot Black is the founder of the group called “Portland Tenants United.”

This group, as well as the Portland Professional Protesters,  got Portland City Commissioners to pass an ordinance to  stick it to landlords by forcing them to pay the relocation costs of tenants who are displaced by no-cause evictions and those who leave willingly because of rent increases.

The aim, of course,  is to eventually bring rent prices under the control of government and away from the market place.

In her day job, Margo Black is the director of “Symbolic and Quantitative Resource Center” at Lewis and Clark College, which is a fancy way of saying that she manages the math and science tutors.

Though she is the director of “quantitative” stuff, she appears to have some difficulty quantifying, not to mention validating her wild claim about, “home grown” Oregon landlords.

“Home grown Oregonians tend to be white and racist.”

 

She felt perfectly comfortable in her own skin in making this offensive and outrageous statement on a recent edition of KATU TV’s “Your Voice Your Vote” hoping that calling others ‘racist’ would win converts to her plan for government take over of housing.

Make sure you catch the part where she says “mom and pop” landlords are too sympathetic so she prefers to deal with large corporate landlords because they’re easier to manipulate by government regulation.
