#HousingDiscrimination. Yet another manifestation of #Racism in America. Don't let any of these "#PostRacialSociety" clowns fool you, either. This wasn't just something that occurred here and there, 60 years ago... It's still prevalent today. There is a host of sources, such as the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, who released a summary study titled "Housing Discrimination Against Racial and Ethnic Minorities 2012" They found that "African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians learn about fewer housing options than equally qualified whites.

Real estate agents and rental housing providers recommend and show fewer available homes and apartments to minority families, thereby increasing their costs and restricting their housing options. The study concludes this is a national, not a regional, phenomenon"

Another group, the Fair Housing Justice Center, has gone to court 5 times this year so far, to file and settle claims against banks, landlords, and real estate businesses, who were found to be using discriminatory practices against nonwhites. So when I tell you white folk, who are in denial about the reality of America, that we still have a serious issue with race, I dont wanna hear you say "but that happened years ago, it doesnt happen anymore." Quite frankly, I'm sick of hearing that line. In an age when we have vast amounts of information at our fingertips, feigning #Ignorance is no excuse

Diverse communities are vibrant communities. #FairHousing for all. #HousingDiscrimination #Housing

Henry, Melody, and an appropriately sized house...which they cannot live in because it's freaking 1963. (Like being Romani in 2017 Czech Republic.) #housingdiscrimination

So I was going to keep this myself, but that's unlike me! I returned from #newyork with a bullet on my counter! Yes I live in the hood, superior to be exact! But for every good thing that happens it's something that happens that pushes me in another frequency! The blessing my son & I wasn't here. Days of stress right bc this is the 3rd time. I experienced #housingdiscrimination for this first time in my life, my account was hit for 270.00 for one spot I looked at, oh yea there was a evection on my report! Lord you beta stop playing! My damn book will be to good! My point you think you know but you have no idea how hard I get up to go hard for something that doesn't pay me yet to help other #fosteryouth ok just venting, have a nice day 😉

Perhaps this explains why this redneck cut me off in Walmart parking lot and yelled "Dum NIGGER!" before speeding off out in #levittown about ten years ago. Ironic how #williamlevitt also developed #manhasset and agreed to ban Jews early on. Mind you, he was Jewish!!! #itsjustbusiness #fortheloveofmoney #soulless

Yet I get labeled "racist" if I oppose #gentrification 🙃

One of the reasons the condo association and landlord refuses to approve the disabled tenant's request to have her emotional support animal is because they are trying to say the dog, Hank, is vicious, which as you can see is not true. #housingdiscrimination #fairhousing #workflow

A display on the effects of housing discrimination and tactics like redlining used against African-Americans, which segregated them into ghettos and propagating inequality and racism in LA. #housing #redlining #inequality #housingdiscrimination #lahistory #africanamericanhistory #americanhistory #blacklivesmatter #blm #education

End #housingdiscrimination. Federal gov't: Update #FairHousing Act to protect #LGBTQ people. @sageusa #Equality #FairHousing

Just got home from an amazing show at @mcachicago // Chicago Works by Amanda Williams @awstudioart is an incredible exhibit exploring spatial justice & housing discrimination through the reimagination of everyday objects // shout-out to my friend @compositedrawing who worked with the artist to set up this powerful exhibit ✊🏿🎨✊🏿🎨

Tell Congress: Pass the Fair and Equal Housing Act to protect LGBTQ people
.
Nobody should face discrimination, especially when it comes to something as basic as having a roof over their head. But for #LGBTQ people living in dozens of states across the country without basic anti-#discrimination #protections, this type of #bigotry is all too common.
.
#Congress has a chance to do something about it. H.R. 1447, the #FairandEqualHousingAct, would ensure that LGBTQ people nationwide are federally protected against #housingdiscrimination. We have to make sure Congress hears how important this is to LGBTQ people and allies across the country. Can you help turn up the pressure now?
.
The petition to Congress reads:
“Pass H.R. 1447, the Fair and Equal Housing Act, to protect LGBTQ people across the country from housing discrimination.”

All hail #queen #maxinewaters #caam #dtla #losangeles Speaking on #doddfrank which is in the process of being reversed... by #45 #housingdiscrimination cheating #contractors in his hotels and #trumpuniversity and how every bank in #unitedstates refused to deal with him.
And quoted Maya: "When people show you who they are believe them."

There is something incredibly #insidious about the way we treat the #homeless. Something I have not only noticed, but have caught myself contributing to. The #classism that runs rampant in our culture enforces the idea that #poverty is the fault of the person it is affecting, and thus said person is not deserving of our respect or sympathy. Which is of course ridiculous. Poverty is to often a result of circumstances in a person's life that are entirely beyond their control, often intersecting with other forms of #oppression. It is no coincidence that #POC (especially #indigenous people in #Vancouver), #LGBTQ people, and people with #disabilities experience disproportionate levels of #homelessness and #financialinsecurity compared to their white and #dycishet peers. #Jobdiscrimination and #housingdiscrimination are pressing issues that must be considered.

Gay middle age. We inherit the work of our elders and pass the lessons and the consequences on to our youth. The more deeply we connect with our peers of all backgrounds, the more humanity we share. But #philandocastile "My son loved this city and this city killed my son." We feel so good about the police when our rights are protected. But what if this was our video. Our boyfriend. Our daughter in the back seat. What is our movement when our allies can't breathe? Police are used as an instrument to control the unwieldy chaos of an unequal world. White people (and in this case I include myself as an Asian like the officer who killed this man) don't suffer the same carceral politics and police brutality. We need to make this a safer world for women, gay people worldwide, and POC. It is about money. It is also about consciousness and community. And inclusion. Praise. Frankness. Everyone in your work, I'm sending you love.

“The Strange Story of Segregation” is surely a nuanced and complicated one, but you cannot step away from it and claim that our segregation is in any way “natural” or claim that it hasn’t been achieved systematically through policy and legislation. It has. Link in bio

Illinois criminal justice system continues to punish former offenders well after they've served their sentences- making them struggle to find work, reliant welfare, and unable to build stable futures for their families- source: https://www.illinoispolicy.org/reports/the-debt-never-paid/
