Reveal’s analysis of mortgage data found evidence of modern-day redlining in 61 metro areas across the country.
Among the 6,600 U.S. lenders, some stood out for particularly extreme practices.
A 1977 law, designed to correct redlining, didn’t anticipate a day when historically black neighborhoods would be sought by young white homebuyers.
People of color continue to be denied conventional mortgage loans at rates far higher than their white counterparts.
Reveal analyzed publicly available data released through the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, combing through 31 million records for 2015 and 2016.
