Here's how bad things used to be in Vidor: There was a persistent rumor 30-odd years ago that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was going to lead a march on the town because it was one of the meanest, toughest, most bigoted places known to man. Blacks dared not live here. The Ku Klux Klan embraced this place, which was once known as "Bloody Vidor." In these parts, Vidor (founded, incidentally, by the father of famed movie director King Vidor) became the symbol of everything a town shouldn't be.

Over the last decade, the justices have restricted sharply the use of race-based affirmative action. In the Dallas case, those restrictions were used for the first time to halt the integration of public housing.

REAL ESTATE
October 21, 1990 | CATHERINE COLLINS, Collins, a veteran real estate reporter, writes from Washington on housing-related issues.
From New Jersey to Los Angeles, builders and developers, lenders and housing advocates are joining hands to build shelters for the homeless, construct affordable rental property or provide below-market financing for low-income buyers. For example, the Local Initiative Support Corp. is the intermediary for public and private sector parterships designed to fund and build low-income housing nationwide.
