Banks are denying mortgages to people of color at a lopsided rate, a new national redlining report shows. And Philadelphia is the main case study.

1400 65th St., Suite 200

    For people of color, banks are shutting the door to homeownership
    Fifty years after the federal Fair Housing Act banned racial discrimination in lending, African Americans and Latinos continue to be routinely denied conventional mortgage loans at rates far higher than their white counterparts.

When the gunman opened fire near 8th and Spring Garden streets, Phillips’ death was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the police began their investigation, Ferguson said “he laid out there for 45 minutes before he was actually discovered.”

Near Broad and Tioga streets, Taron Mitchell remembered his friend Mike Williams.

    Philly families mourn their lost, make 10-mile March to End Homicide
    Ferguson feels especially anxious about gun violence now, she said, and sees the ripple effects in her community. "Because the streets are unsafe, you feel like your family is unsafe," she said. "You're scared to walk the streets, you can't sit on your steps, you're scared to send your children to the store, so it affects everybody."
