“How Real Estate Segregated America,” *Dissent*, Fall 2018

by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, who writes and speaks on Black politics, social movements, and racial inequality in the United States. In this essay, Taylor outlines the policies of predatory inclusion that have shaped homeownership since the Fair Housing Act and the HUD Act of 1968. Born from the civic uprisings of 1967–68, and intended as remedies for years of de jure housing segregation, their failure, Taylor argues, stems from the entanglement of public policy with real estate interests.
