A further update to the saga of that now-infamous Businessweek housing cover.

The actual story it illustrates is about the housing recovery in the Phoenix area and says nothing in particular about minority homeowners (though obviously Phoenix has a large Latino population). Instead it's about how housing recovery is on the one hand good for the American economy, but on the other hand we seem to already be in a new speculative phase with people talking about getting rich flipping houses, housing as a can't-lose investment, and all the rest of the mid-aughts madness. To go with the story they commissioned an illustration from a Peruvian illustrator who, in a missive that Businessweek shared with me, explains "I simply drew the family like that because those are the kind of families I know. I am Latino and grew up around plenty of mixed families."

That's understandable enough as far as it goes. Obviously, though, as Businessweek well knows someone else on the staff should have been able to see how this was going to look in the U.S. context. It's pretty clear if you read the story that there's genuinely no effort here to impugn minority homebuyers, but that's certainly how I read the image, and I think it's a very natural reading of it.

Y'all didn't know that a Black president means racism is gone and our emotions are misplaced, paranoid and overly sensitive?  Get with it!  Nonwhite owning homes really IS scary!  We could be their neighbors!  Ew!

On a serious note, this freaks me out a bit because hubby and I are trying to purchase a short sale and a preapproved at 3.5%.  That made us very happy but all our friends who bought 2004-2008 lost their homes.  ALL of them.  So it makes me wonder too......too good to be true?  I keep telling myself we have good jobs and will be okay.  We didn't buy then because flip hustle or not we couldn't afford to.
