  •  I've been told this, basically, as well (9+ / 0-)

    In some places it's assumed the average White person has those attitudes so as long as no Black people are around those attitudes can be openly expressed.
    Friend from Tx relates how in neighborhood gatherings in small circles the N word would be used freely.No Black neighbors I assume.

      people who should be kept out and "gated communities" with homeowner associations are the descendants of segregation via deed restrictions.
      The enforcers of residential segregation? Real estate agents. They are the gate keepers.

      Somehow, being exclusive makes people feel good.

      •  it was like that with one realtor in the town I (0+ / 0-)

        grew up with in the Northeast. 40 years ago.

        There were two other realtors and some Black people in our neighborhood so clearly the racist realtor didn't get all the business.

        I found this out when I sold my parent's house about 10 yrs ago. Woman in her 70s, old neighbor of us/my parents, pointed me to her so called "right" realtor.

        I was gratified when I sold to a minority family.
