Let's get one thing straight: Housing discrimination is illegal, unethical and just plain wrong.

Apart from some very narrow exceptions, fair housing laws make clear that it's illegal to deny anyone a fair and equal opportunity to buy or rent a home or obtain a mortgage on the basis of his or her race, religion or other protected characteristics. But unfortunately, neither the illegality nor the immorality of such discrimination has put a stop to it.
