How would you feel if you finally found your dream house, only to discover that the local Homeowners Association wanted you to sign a Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions that banned non-white people from living there?
CBS Sacramento reports that this is what happened to some new residents who moved into the Lakeside Estates community located in El Dorado Hills, California. The Lakeside Estates’ CC&Rs was written in 1959 and it still contains language that explicitly says only white people can live in the community.
“No person except those of the white Caucasian race shall use, occupy or reside upon any residential lot or plot, in this subdivision, except when employed as a servant or domestic in the household of a White Caucasian tenant or owner,” the clause in the CC&Rs reads.
It’s worth noting that this rule is not at all enforced anymore, and there are several non-white people who do live in the community.
Nonetheless, some new families who have just moved to the area found this clause to be “mind boggling,” and they’re vowing to get the CC&Rs changed.
“I just don’t think in this day and age that’s how things should be, and I just want to set that stage for the world that my kids are gonna grow up in,” said Cameron Foster, a new resident to the community who is launching a signature drive among community residents to get the racist language removed from the CC&Rs.

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."

Embattled Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suffered further humiliation on Saturday when only two people showed up for his town hall meeting with Iowa constituents.

Rep. King was quickly mocked in the comments.
