That's not a time in history I'm particularly proud of. A shame we need The Civil Rights Act(s) in all their permutations, but it's quite clear that we do.
    When it comes to renting, it comes down to their credit report and work history. That gets rid of the unwanteds.

    I think discrimination laws are needed, but I also think all should be treated equally under it. The "majority" should have no less or more than the "minority" that is what is still morally bankrupting our country, it keeps everyone being separate, forces us to think in terms of race.

    A lot of business STILL discriminate, even though it's illegal. The need is not hypothetical. Real discrimination cases happen every day.
