– ‘You May Not Be Into Politics-Racial Issues But Politics and Racial Issues are Into You’ Videos-Facts Equip Practical Tips on Long Standing Hot Topic; plus MHMarkets


According to left-leaning Bing’s AI powered Copilot the headlined referenced remark ‘You May Not Be Into Politics and Racial Issues But Politics and Racial Issues are Into You’ is based on the following. “The quote “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you” is attributed to Pericles1. In a straightforward sense, Pericles emphasizes that even if someone chooses not to engage or show interest in politics, they are still inevitably affected by political decisions and actions. This quote resonates with the realities of our society, where politics permeates various aspects of our daily lives, shaping policies, laws, and institutions that influence us all2.” That is a theme in the video posted and unpacked in this article. According to their website: “In GREAT AMERICAN RACE GAME, British film director Martin Durkin plunges into the shark-infested waters of American race-politics and explores its long and obfuscated history.” That site also said: “There is still racial bigotry in America, as there is elsewhere in the world. It is a terrible thing, and should be exposed and condemned.  But there are political forces in America who have gone –in little over a century— from the party of overt and active racism, to the party pandering to racial issues (while exacerbating them), to a party who has created an image of itself as the only righteous defenders of the downtrodden —which they’ve defined as all non-White people.  Worse still, this political ideology has  not only been able to create an atmosphere where criticism of it or its policies is seen by many as racist in origin, but by reducing all the complexities of governance to race, is behaving in the same ways it did a hundred years ago: unabashedly racist.” The video focuses on insights by Blacks on the politics of race relations in the U.S. and how racial issues impact almost every aspect of American society.

Part I

QuoteMarksLeftSideMartin Durkin’s provocative feature-length documentary film on the politics of race in America, the surprising history of its weaponization for political gain, and the Black Americans who are fighting back.

Durkin has obtained interviews from some of the most outstanding thinkers active today to discuss this complex issue and to shed much needed light on its past and present, and hopefully help change the course of political discourse, as a key group —regarded by some as political pawns— is beginning to refuse to be used.

Interviewees include: Larry Elder, Professor Walter Williams, Bevelyn Beatty, Professor Glenn Loury, Dr. Wilfred Reilly, Brandon Tatum, Robert Woodson, Niger Innis, Kmele Foster.”

The full-length version of this video is streaming at this time (4.26.2024) on Prime.  A teaser is found below.



The preface above tees up the following.

1) The full-length version of the GREAT AMERICAN RACE GAME documentary is – at least on this date (4.26.2024) – found on Rumble and is posted below.



2) MHProNews recently shared the investigative reporter and crowdfunded documentary drama, The Fall of Minneapolis. There is some overlap between the subjects, but each stand on its own merits.




3) Because housing and racial issues are clearly intertwined, MHProNews has periodically spotlighted these topics, including by sharing the documentary on Uncle Tom which featured the role that white billionaires are playing a role in fueling the current conundrum.



These are all well-made, professional quality productions.

4) MHProNews have periodically also looked at the thinking and actions of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.  An example from this year (2024) is linked below.




5) MHProNews put the following to left-leaning Bing’s artificial intelligence (AI) powered Copilot.

Is the historic information presented in the Martin Durkin provocative feature-length documentary film on the politics of race in America and the surprising history of its weaponization for political gain and the Black Americans who are fighting back largely historically accurate?

BingCopilotAI-Screen1.3.2024MHProNewsMartin Durkin’s provocative feature-length documentary film, titled “The Great American Race Game,” delves into the complex politics of race in America and uncovers its long and often obscured history. The film aims to shed light on the past and present dynamics surrounding race, as well as the ways in which Black Americans are pushing back against racial narratives.

Here are some key points about the documentary:

Great American Race Game is a well-produced film that feeds the mind. It incisively delves into the heart of racial matters; exposing the real reasons for present racial strife and division in the United States.”

6) That noted, Copilot didn’t directly answer the question. Thus, this follow-up.

That wasn’t a specific answer to my question. While it shares a perspective, isn’t the documentary which uses several news and other clips, historically accurate?

BingCopilotAI-Screen1.3.2024MHProNewsI apologize for not directly addressing your question in my previous response. Let’s delve into the historical accuracy of “The Great American Race Game.”

Historical accuracy in documentaries can be a nuanced matter. While documentaries aim to present factual information, they often incorporate various perspectives, interviews, and archival footage. Here are some considerations:

  1. Primary Sources: Documentaries often rely on primary sources such as news clips, interviews, and historical records. The accuracy of these sources is crucial.
  2. Contextual Interpretation: Filmmakers interpret historical events and weave them into a narrative. Their perspective and biases can influence how information is presented.
  3. Fact-Checking: It’s essential to fact-check claims made in documentaries. Some documentaries may emphasize certain aspects while downplaying others.
  4. Viewer Discretion: Viewers should approach documentaries critically, cross-referencing information with other reliable sources.

Regarding “The Great American Race Game,” here are some points:

  • The documentary features interviews with prominent figures who share their perspectives on race, politics, and history.
  • It incorporates news clips and archival footage to support its arguments.
  • The film challenges prevailing narratives and encourages viewers to think critically.

However, without a comprehensive analysis of each claim and source, I cannot definitively state its historical accuracy. I recommend researching further, consulting additional sources, and forming an informed opinion. …”


7) As part of yet another Q&A follow up, Copilot said this.

BingCopilotAI-Screen1.3.2024MHProNews“Indeed, viewing the documentary can be a valuable starting point for understanding the perspectives presented in “The Great American Race Game.” …

  1. Watch the Documentary:
    • Begin by watching the documentary itself. Pay attention to the interviews, historical footage, and arguments put forth by the filmmakers.
    • Consider the context in which it was made and the intended audience.
  2. Fact-Check and Cross-Reference:
    • After viewing, fact-check the claims made in the documentary. Look for reliable sources that corroborate or challenge the information presented.
    • Cross-reference with other documentaries, books, articles, and scholarly research on the topic of race in America.
  3. Explore Alternative Perspectives:
    • Seek out alternative viewpoints. Read articles, watch other documentaries, and engage with diverse sources.
    • Understand that documentaries often have a specific angle, and exploring different angles can provide a more comprehensive understanding.
  4. Critical Thinking:
    • Apply critical thinking skills. Consider biases, historical context, and the motivations behind the documentary’s creation.
    • Reflect on how the film aligns with your existing knowledge and beliefs.
  5. Discuss and Engage:
    • Engage in discussions with others who have watched the documentary. Share insights and learn from their perspectives.
    • Attend lectures, seminars, or panel discussions related to race and history.

Remember that documentaries serve as a lens through which we view complex issues. They can provoke thought, but a holistic understanding requires further exploration. …”


8) There appears to be a drift of numbers of traditional Democratic constituencies away from Biden and Democrats toward Trump and MAGA or America First Republicans (as opposed to RINO or Establishment Republicans).

9) A look at issues and trends impacting younger adults and broader categories being referred to below are useful for better understanding the housing, cultural, and political trends that in turn impact our profession.








10) This survey reflects insights that in several respects ought to point to an environment where manufactured housing is flourishing. But that is obviously not the case. Investors have bet some 2 billion dollars, per known sources, in recent years in the U.S. alone on factory-built options that aim to compete against HUD Code manufactured homes. Overall, at this point in time, the evidence suggests that they are not succeeding.




11) Ought to be clear from the data and facts linked below that the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) is not doing an effective job of representing any firm other than consolidators of the manufactured home industry. Others, wittingly or not, are just along for the ride.  See the report for tomorrow (Sunday) to learn more about the manufactured home industry facts and trends.


The first two months of 2024 yielded some 15,830 homes. If that pace was maintained through the year it would equal about 94,980 total new HUD Code manufactured homes in the U.S. That would be a pace similar to the years 2019-2020, and less than 2018, 2021 and 2022. That would also be about 72 percent lower than production in 1998.








12) There are ‘straw man‘ or ‘deception and misdirection‘ arguments that are floated by various members of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) in order to justify their respective positions. In an email from a well-known personality in MHVille are these words:


  1. Mobile home parks are being redeveloped because lot rents are too low and other options (apartments typically) are too lucrative to pass up. This is only going to accelerate unless lot rents go up at a faster pace to offset the ability to stack apartments two or three high.
  2. Residents cannot effectively operate the mobile home parks they buy and this model is already stating to fall apart. States need to take note of these failures and give up on this misguided fantasy. Non-profits are going to wise up and no longer personally guarantee the debt on these things. …”

MHProNews and/or MHLivingNews plans to explore that email and unpack it in the days ahead.  But until then, the case can be advanced that those claims made above (along with others like it) are demonstrably untrue. That professional and their colleagues are welcome to publicly debate the topic in a live GoToMeeting or Zoom type forum with MHProNews that others can watch and record for future consideration. Or in the alternative, a nearby university or college is likely to say yes to hosting a live public forum that some third party could moderate. Our hunch is that they won’t take up the challenge of a moderate debate/discussion (live or virtual). Neither has nor will MHI nor their allies likely do a live debate.




But if so, let’s all have a good time doing some genuine fact-finding and reality checks.

13) The industry is demonstrably underperforming during an affordable housing crisis because the business models of the dominating brands in manufactured housing are geared toward industry underperformance that yields consolidation in its wake. That’s what is proven by the evidence.




14) A specific example of race and politics playing out in manufactured housing is explored in the remarks made by MHI CEO Lesli Gooch in the report linked below.


MHI-ManufacturedHousingInstituteWillGrantRequestViaPrayerMayorProTemIvoryMewbornLesliGoochPICaffordablePlantAHomeMillionsWakingUpSurprisingSoberingYetHopefulRealitiesMHLivingNews Note: this is different than, but related to, the report found on the Masthead, linked above.


15) Clearly, those who explore #14 in depth will discover that the two national associations views on how racial equity should be approached differ in a practical sense.  Additionally, the nation’s politicos are happy to talk about the affordable housing crisis, but they clearly aren’t prepared to solve it.




16) While these things are debatable, in fact, neither MHI, nor its bloggers or other defenders stepped up to the plate in public to actually do a debate. This is despite repeated offers made to MHI, its leaders, or outside attorneys to respond to or debate the issues.   Ironically, the evidence-based case can be made that MHI is disparaging itself! Even AI is disparaging MHI!

Goch is a paid mouthpiece for MHI. This pull quote from a letter from Goch is fascinating. On the one hand, Goch says that MHI is working for the interests of all, and wants all points of view. But then, Goch threatens in writing an then MHI member who dared question the association. They can not have it both ways. Part of the irony is that in hindsight, as the evidence mounts, it becomes obvious that MHI has postured efforts for almost 20 years, since the start of the Berkshire era of manufactured housing began. Coincidence? Or just part of a broader plan that has benefited a few at great cost and harm to the many?
