To scholars and social critics, the racial segregation of our neighborhoods has long been viewed as a manifestation of unscrupulous real estate agents, unethical mortgage lenders, and exclusionary covenants working outside the law. This is what is commonly known as "de facto segregation," practices that were the outcome of private activity, not law or explicit public policy. Through legislation, they prevented people of color from building clusters of settlements in cities, fearing that if too many black people lived in an area, the city would be viewed as Pro-Black. Thus, the city will not be investor-friendly. Fearing this boom in the African-American population, they scattered millions of black people among white people and migrated white people into black neighborhoods. "Learning The Color of Law" is an impressive read. It offers credible scholarly evidence on a systemic plot to isolate and eradicate the black community out of America. To this day, these laws are implemented by both sides and of the Isle without the slightest regard for the fallout that it has had on the black community. Despite its shocking revelations, this book is pretty much a research and an uncovering of history that many people have refused to acknowledge as facts. Rothstein offers clear proof of human rights violations that were overlooked by politicians who sought to oppress a minority in favor of the majority.
