    It says that, "redlining is the practice of denying, or charging more for, services such as banking, insurance, access to health care, or even supermarkets, or denying jobs to residents in particular, often racially determined, areas.

    It goes on to say that the areas most frequently red lined were black inner city neighborhoods and that banks would often lend to lower-income whites but not to middle- or upper-income blacks. So in response to your question, yes it was most likely "policy".

    Lots of this is based on the money. Where does Oprah live?

There is such a thing as collective conscieneness which is almost genetic in nature....Stories passed from grandparents and parents that become the imbedded memory of a whole community, a whole race of people..... Unless your parents and grandparents had to sit at the back of the bus, drink out of a separate water fountains, lower your eyes when approaching a white person, count a jar full of marbles before you could vote---then how could you even imagine what a whole people have been through in this country.......and why there is a deep seated resentment and distrust of most white people......
    Yet despite that MANY African Americans have not only made it but have gone on to become some of the wealthiest and most influential people in our country.

    If you had ask someone in the 60s if they thought an African American would hold office in all three branches of our government they'd think not in a million years.

    This is not the 60s.

    No. It still feels the same damned way regardless.
    Only we can distinguish between rarely and often. As well as systematic and individual. Nt making proper distinctions is dishonest.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think some people are stuck on the arguments of 3 decades ago.

    I'd like to know of a business in today's society who would say NO to money because of someone's race....





    Thats what I thought.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No, up that's your misreading. You merely don't know what you missed. They can make mistakes, which isn't dishonest. Everyone doesn't get convicted, so it's possible that without pre-conceived notions they would have seen something else. We can't know. It's merely a fact that we can only see what is shown.

    Dishonest is ignoring how someone, anyone, of any race feels after having it done to them.

    Re-****ing-gardless of "history"

    Why don't you seem to understand that?

    Since a Public Policy Polling poll found That 51 percent of GOP primary voters believe that President Obama was not born in the USA, excuse while I ignore Rasmussen's poll.

    Read more: Poll: 51 percent of GOP primary voters think Obama born abroad - Andy Barr - POLITICO.com

    I find any poll that targets a certain group suspect because usually it is funded by people who have an axe to grind, a postion to support.
