A Very Brief History of (Un)Fair Housing

So what exactly is HUD doing?

“Without disparate impact theory, people experiencing housing discrimination would have to show that a housing provider, city, or other entity intended to discriminate against them, which is very difficult to do.

Disparate impact cases are already incredibly difficult to prove under HUD’s current standards. Even after decades of the use of disparate impact theory, housing providers and insurance companies have still been able to succeed. By making disparate impact cases even more difficult, HUD will basically allow housing providers, insurance companies, and others to have discriminatory policies in place without accountability — unless they are explicit in their discrimination.”
