The rents are so high in Suffolk and surrounding areas in Virgina, because of the housing authority. There are people that don't have jobs or just part time jobs who live better than those with full time jobs . The social system is making it bad for people who work everyday and cannot afford decent places to live. Then there are no limits on what a landlord can charge for some of these crappy places. This state and local government is just money hungry and it doesn't matter anymore about what race you are, it's all about the mean green. It all boils down to politics and if you are not plotting on the poor, then you may not get anywhere here. It's sad but true!!
