This landlord was contacted by a tenant who couldn’t pay rent because he had a medical emergency, then contracted COVID. The tenant was proactive, and I like to think that I would try and work with a tenant that was trying to work with me. At one point, the landlord had her own financial problems and was on food stamps.

I was in agreement with the landlord in this case, until she said this:

“I’m a white person, and there’s generational wealth,” she said.

So white people should pay for the bills of other races, simply because they are white. Isn’t that slavery? They claim it is only fair, since blacks make up 20% of renters, but are 35% of evictions. That is a total bullshit stat. It doesn’t matter how many black renters there are, what matters is how many black renters are not paying their rent.

George Floyd doesn’t have jack shit to do with my tenants or whether or not they are paying their rent. I also don’t understand how that makes any of this my problem.

another person with white guilt…if she wanted to help the guy out of the goodness from from her heart, more power to her…to spout that crap is just that, crap…

Reading this I’m reminded of all the charities and gubmint programs to deal with this sort of situation. My church has at least two. Why should the sole landlord absorb the hit? If this were an apartment building, his crap would’ve been on the curb in nothing flat.

And generational wealth? Yeah. I know no one that scored big when the parents passed. More often than not, there’s a smoking hole where their savings should’ve been because mom outlived her money. To the extent I’ve seen wealth passed on, I’ve mostly seen it pissed away.

Yep. White person here. Raised in a poor family. Didn’t ask for nuthin, got nuthin. Inherited nuthin. I was almost 40 before I was making a living wage. I owe these people nothing, yet they take via taxes and way too many federal programs.

Some people can’t help themselves and make statements like this. Look at the source of this story. My first thought is bullshit story. My main thought is if I was landlord and this was a long term renter with good history I am going to do everything in my power to help.
