1. Those racist deed restrictions exist in Los Angeles too

I found a few on sales I handled in 2014-2016. I'm sure there's some here in the Atlanta metro area, I just haven't come across any yet. They are recorded public documents and almost impossible to scub them all. I suppose if someone put their mind to it they could redact the racist language from millions of recorded deeds going back over 100 years. The ones I saw in Los Angeles were hand written in the 1910's!

As the article points out, these racist deed restrictions cannot be enforced per the 1968 Fair Housing Act.

The subdivisions can and should remove this language from current restrictions but redacting previously recorded documents is a big lift.

I think there's much more constructive things we can do to combat housing or any other discrimination.
