Description

This article focuses on how race played into home mortgage lending in the Nashville area, showing that African-American home owners were more often denied for mortgage loans "up to three times more often than whites even when incomes were similar." This data was comparable to cities of similar size to Nashville, such as Charlotte, N.C., and Austin, TX. There was also an investigation into cultural differences up for debate as to the discrepancies and discrimination.
