Today`s announcement of the government suing Bank of America for a billion dollars over mortgage frauds committed by Countrywide Financial reminds me of how much one of the key events of the Housing Bubble/Bust remains ignored: namely, Countrywide`s January 2005 press release boasting of its We House America initiative to lend One ... Trillion ... Dollars to minorities and lower-income borrowers. (This followed 23 months after Angelo Mozilo`s Harvard speech in which he pledged Countrywide to lend $600 billion to minorities and lower-income borrowers.) 

I just did a Google search on 

 

Countrywide trillion minorities


and got a grand total of about 18 results back from Google. Here they all are. I realize these dozen and a half pages will be boring — just PR releases, me, and a few random folks — but that`s the point.

I dunno. I must be nuts. I personally think that a trillion dollars is a big deal, but what do I know? The implications of Countrywide`s trillion dollar pledge don`t favor one party over the other, they don`t favor one ideology over another, and they don`t favor the sacred fetish of Diversity, so who wants to know about it?

Nobody.
