    That connection is gibberish. The store is over here so people starve? People don't build stores near bad neighborhoods not because racism, but because the neighborhood is bad. Most of the people you are talking about live in these neighborhoods as you are aware.

    And of course there's reverse redlining where banks target blacks to charge them more than they would charge a similarly situated white consumer....



    Charging the poor more money for mortgages, insurance, services and even food than the more affluent, is why the poor stay poor.
    They were forced to give loans to people that can't afford them. When it came to minorities they were sued for not giving loans to them that they couldn't possiblity afford several times. This lead to them doing just that, but because the loan was trash and they knew it, they decided to give them higher interest rates. This is what everyone got of all races that couldn't afford what they were getting. High interest loans, but like I said, they had no choice.

    As for your other claims here, sorry, but why don't you have links for them when you have a link for the above?

    NO, BANKS WERE NOT FORCED TO LOAN MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO COULD NOT AFFORD IT. that's patently false.

    No it's not. Unless you have some other explanation, as to why after decades of banking practices all these bankers started making bad loans, one day; loans that they knew wouldn't go to term. It wasn't until after CRA had passed.

    And, no, "because they're all greedy", isn't an explanation.

    Actually its a very good explanation. People in any industry are always pressured to produce more and be more profitable.

    People seeking to squeeze out more profit finding a short term way to do it and with lessening leverage requirements have a good incentive to maximize short term gains at the expense of the long term. The CRA is just an easy excuse for something that happens all the time, especially give how often people suck at self regulation.

    Hmm this is sort of true I guess.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
