Dr. G. William Domhoff on The Ford Foundation in the Inner City (TLR Note: 1-Domhoff Amazing 2- Maya Harris / Tony West Allies of Ford Foundation 3 – Tides Also Part of Network 4 – Ford/Tides Part of Scheme to Maintain Power/Control/Use African-American)

The Ford Foundation’s New York headquarters

This is the story of the Ford Foundation’s involvement in the inner city, which began back in 1955 when it financed a program to smooth the way for the expansion of downtowns into low-income neighborhoods through urban renewal. The essay explains how and why this powerful foundation developed what might seem at first glance to be an unlikely alliance with neighborhood activists in the 1960s and 1970s, then put its primary focus on low-income housing in the 1980s. But let’s start at the grassroots level and find our way to the power elite from there.

If you were to go into a low-income, inner-city neighborhood today, whether it was predominantly white or predominantly black, you might see several locally managed nonprofit organizations called Community-Based Organizations, or CBOs. These CBOs provide social services, job training, support for neighborhood groups and new small businesses, and/or advocacy for tenant’s rights.

  • AOC: You expected our reports to be useful? Pass a law that says so. 2014/04/14
    It’s disturbing that this piece of legislation is even necessary. But it is necessary because the AOC wishes to hide the financial ball to whatever degree they can get away with. AB1773 (Allen) deals with the public contracts and the courts. Among other things, it requires that the AOC present their reports in an electronic […]

  • Centralized Funding & Control – The Real “Phantom Menace” 2014/04/14
    The Chief Justice made a startling statement in a recent television interview: “General funds support for the third branch of government has failed. It’s absolutely a skeleton of what it used to be.” Her remarks stand in stark contrast with those of her predecessor in a speech he gave back in 2009: “It was anticipated […]

  • AOC Priorities are not those of the courts 2014/04/10
    The AOC recently put together a 21-page spreadsheet listing all that it does. You can read it on the Judicial Branch website here. The AOC counts the following among the services it provides: “Support to Civics Education program to improve civic learning and public understanding of the judicial branch including the California Task Force on K-12 […]

  • Flirting with dementia while sitting on the bench 2014/04/09
    “Do you have anything to add?” We’re going a bit off the reservation today because we think it is important that Courthouse News gets a new judge to hear their case. As has been widely reported, the ninth circuit reversed a decision to dismiss a lawsuit against Michael Planet of the Ventura County Courts for […]

  • Auditable: Your revenue projections might be off when you spend the money. 2014/03/28
    It was a struggle for the AOC to keep what they knew about the so called 70 million dollar revenue shortfall under wraps with a joint legislative audit committee breathing down their neck. Had the information leaked out sooner, it just might have resulted in a unanimous decision to audit the judicial council and the […]
