Racial Bias In Housing & The Economic Cost of U.S. Racial Inequality This is our last session in a four-part series on Racism in America. We will start with a look at the history of housing discrimination. Sadly, housing discrimination continues and its impact ripples throughout society. It affects housing, educational, and job opportunities; it also affects wealth accumulation, health outcomes, and future prospects. So, what can … and should be done? Then we will look at the economic costs of our racial inequity. We live in a society where the economy is largely driven by consumer spending. Yet we are excluding or limiting far too many people’s ability to fully participate in the economy. And it has a real economic impact. We will take a deeper look. Please join us as we look at racial bias in housing and the economic cost of our racial inequality.
