White Habitus Bonilla-Silva describes whites as living in a  hyper-segregated world How are neighborhoods kept separate? The Fair Housing Act was signed in 1968; still  the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban  Development (HUD) estimates that more than 2  million incidents of unlawful discrimination  occur each year

Chapter 5 Some more ways discrimination happens: Having to wait longer than whites for a meeting Being told about fewer units or otherwise being given  less information Being steered to neighborhoods where residents are  disproportionately of the applicant’s race or ethnicity Facing higher deposit or down payment requirements  and other costs Simply being told that a unit, loan, or policy is not  available, when it is available

Are we REALLY still segregated? Bill Rankin, a cartographer, created a map of  Racial Segregation in the city of Chicago Eric Fischer created maps for the U.S.’s 40 largest  cities Fischer used a straight forward method borrowed  from Rankin: Using U.S. Census data from 2000, he  created a map where one dot equals 25 people. The  dots are then color-coded based on race: White is  pink; Black is blue; Hispanic is orange, and Asian is  green.  Atlanta: http://www.flickr.com/photos/walkingsf/4981400669/in/set-721576
