Where you decide to live can ultimately determine what may happen to you, what people may think about you and your personal quality of life. Although race still makes a difference now compared to race since 1970,the idea of equal housing opportunities is accepted at a higher percentage.In the first article, written by Reynolds Farley, he describes racial housing since 1970 andthe changes of racial housing since that time. Before racial housing and racial housing segregation, violence sparked out in almost every city against blacks who wanted to move in predominantly white neighborhoods. Also, around 1962, real estate associations began to develop “ethical principles” that prohibited brokers from selling to blacks or other minorities who wished to enter white neighborhoods (37). Racial riots began to spark in the 1960s and this brought attention about segregation to the nation’s eyes. One of the changes occurred after the killing of Martin Luther King Jr. Associations of real estate brokers changes their ethical standards and adopted non-discrimination policies that were required by law (37).
