    Justin Curious--the "debate" about disparate impact under the FHA "evolved" in 2015 to where the Supreme Court held it exists, in line with every other court to consider the issue. Your other statements are even less true, and much more offensive. Perhaps if people like you stopped imagining that poor people are "doomed at conception hoodlums" with "incessant gunplay" municipalities wouldn‘t zone in segregation.

Second, dire poverty in Connecticut and the rest of America could be virtually eliminated within a couple of generations if poor people would simply stop having babies they can‘t possibly afford to raise. And third, who will be the first Connecticut Law Tribune editorial board writer to voluntarily live next door fatherless, doomed-at-conception hoodlums and their incessant gunplay?
