ONN – Racial Discrimination Is Hidden In Today’s U.S. Housing Market
A government hearing chaired by U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-LA) on combating homelessness was the backdrop for this testimony from Chancela Al-Mansour, The Executive Director of the Housing Rights Center In Los Angeles.
She explained that racial discrimination in housing is hidden today. No one will tell you they don’t want you because you’re black. But what happens is the racial discrimination is done behind the person’s back.
In Oakland, there’s no evidence the City of Oakland is combating housing discrimination. But of the 17,000 illegal evictions in Oakland since 2007, the majority have been black and elderly.
Oakland News Now Note: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network. This is a major part of our new approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and also seek interested content and media technology partners.
