What housing discrimination?

"Housing discrimination is discrimination in which an individual or family is treated unequally when trying to buy, rent, lease, sell, or finance a home based on certain characteristics such as race, class, sex, religion, national origin, and familial status." Housing discrimination disproportionately affects black Americans through a process called redlining.
