341 Name HDFS ___Dina Mumm__ Reading Prep 1: Fair Housing Legislation: Not an Easy Row to Hoe 1. What was the problem in the 1960's in the U.S. that lead to the need for fair housing legislation? Blatant racial segregation that led to a lack of funding and quality of neighborhood schools between Black and White neighborhoods. 2. List the two conflicting values that hindered the passage of the fair housing legislation. The selling and renting of large scale properties and the small home owners that wish to sell or rent out their home or apartment. 3. Who were the major lobby groups and why were they involved with fair housing? NAACP and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights were involved with all things that had to do with equality and fairness. 4. Early in the debate why was the fair housing legislation omitted from the larger civil rights bill? They believed that it would bring the bill down and be cut out so the larger civil rights bill was easier to pass. 5. Describe the exemption to the legislation that is often referred to as the "Mrs. Murphy exemption? It exempts the individuals who do not use a broker or real estate sales agent. 6. Why was the Murphy Mrs. exemption necessary to pass the fair housing legislation? It still allowed home owners to discriminate for the sale of their home and it weakened the strength of the bill. 7. List the two incidents that influenced the immediate passage of the fair housing law. The failure to delete the title and the Majority Leader Mike Mansfield passed the bill to avoid referral to committee. 8. List the two factors that were the intent of the fair housing law. Fair housing for those wishing to buy or rent in a building with 4 or less housing units. Equal opportunity for those using a broker or real estate sales agent. 9. What was the short-coming of the final fair housing law in 1968 that was corrected in 1988. It lacked teeth; the process of finding a house had a lot of parts that weren't protected and it was broadened to encompass other minorities. 10. Summarize in a few sentences why Fair Housing Legislation was "not an easy row to hoe." Discrimination in the 60's was a very touchy subject. There were many groups fighting for equality, pressuring bills to pass in the House and it is difficult to make decisions with so many people's feelings at stake.
