Affirmatively Furthering Community Development

(p.31) 2 Affirmatively Furthering Community Development
The One-Way Street of Integration

Edward G. Goetz

Cornell University Press

This chapter presents a counter-argument to the integration imperative. The chapter offers critiques of the integration argument and presents an argument in favour of affordable housing and community development in low-income communities of color. The chapter articulates how integration falls short in altering the political dynamics and structural inequalities of race. In contrast, community development is presented as a policy alternative that provides benefits to disadvantaged communities (in terms of better housing and jobs, for example) and constitutes a better alternative for addressing more fundamental questions of racial justice.
