The New Redlining
Northern Kentucky University
"Though officially outlawed in 1968, the consequences of redlining policies are still felt in many communities within the United States today. An expression of systemic racism, redlining was the collusion of banks, with the guidance of the HOLC, to prohibit investment in predominantly minority areas. Many neighborhoods that were once redlined districts are being gentrified today, with renovation efforts intentionally removing and displacing nonwhite, low- income communities in order to drive in more affluent, white investors. This research seeks to prove that gentrification is a modern manifestation of redlining in its discriminatory and oppressive motivations, practices, and consequences."
