Short Video of the Day (Race & Redlining: Housing Segregation In Everything)
As Gene Demby explains in the video, housing segregation didn't happen by accident. What's the impact of housing segregation and how did it create better conditions for whites? Housing segregation means unequal experiences in terms of quality of available public schools, interactions and experiences with police, likelihood of being near environmental hazards, and ability to build wealth.
Note: I saw the video on Mark Anthony Neal's NewBlackMan blog, posted here.
