So many laws, so little enforcement.
In the 1960s, the United States created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, to “bring suit on behalf of alleged victims of discrimination against private employers” and enacted the Fair Housing Act, which “prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status and handicap.”
Studies show that minority job applicants with competitive resumes get a lot fewer callbacks than their white counterparts. In New Orleans and elsewhere in the nation, people with black and ethnic names also suffer mass rental discrimination.
How does banning something discourage and avoid it?
