Redlining and housing discrimination outlawed over half a century ago baked racial disparities into our landscape, but today’s housing policies do little to reverse them, and in many instances continue to reinforce deep patterns of racial segregation. How have shifts in policy and the political economy since the 1970s maintained structural racism in housing?
