021: What Racism? Part 2: Housing Discrimination

021: What Racism? Part 2: Housing Discrimination

OMG WE HAVE A NEW FORMAT!! I'm really excited. I mean, it's possible that we COMPLETELY bombed it but at some point we'll get it under control and it'll be a good thing.

Get ready to talk about housing discrimination (and javalinas and Black pioneers in Oregon and a million swears) with Alice and me.

My notes are from the following sources.

Smithsonian Magazine report on the destruction of Vanport

History of Black Portland 

Undercover Investigation in Racial Discrimination in New York

Black and Latinx families charged higher interest for mortgages

College admissions favor rich white kids

Small Update! I am going to try to link all the book suggestions I share to Black and Indigenous owned bookstores! This week's is Loyalty Bookstore in Washington, DC.

The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein

When Affirmative Action was White by Ira Katznelson

White Homework for the week: if you live in a US city, what's the history of segregation in your city? Extra credit for including a link!
