Here's a question for "post-racial" America: Are people okay with housing discrimination if it doesn't directly affect them? Or, going one step further, if it benefits them?

YouTube comedy duo the Lie Guys explore this matter in a telling, five-minute video. The pair set up their experiment by offering up a cheap apartment rental on Craigslist. In a series of Skype interviews, they then ask four potential tenants ó two white and two Latino ó if they'd be fine moving into the attractively priced $400 room in Hollywood, Calif. under the following rules: "No cats, no dogs, no black people" and "just make sure that you take your shoes off when you walk in" (Italics added for emphasis).

Here's how that went:

Incredible: As LaToya Peterson writes at Racialicious, a major takeaway from the video is the apparent ease with which the average person "tacitly [agrees] with racism." The experiment isn't exactly scientific, but it does speak to the troubling normalization of anti-black sentiment in discussions around living spaces.

For example, it's no secret that the history of American cities is one of imposed racial division. From Jim Crow segregation to redlining and "white flight," the U.S. government has repeatedly joined with real estate agents and landlords to maintain exclusionary housing practices.

The result is a geography notable for its segregation:

Yet even in 2014, the idealization of black-free housing and neighborhoods holds a remarkable appeal to many renters ó one that real estate agents are very comfortable exploiting.

Exhibit A, via Brokelyn: Here's a property ad published by a company for the historically black Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY (2011 estimate: 60% black, according to the New York Times):

The real estate brochure imagines an idealized development replete with the trappings of gentrification: Artisanal coffee shops, outdoor cafes ó and most notably, a milieu distinctly devoid of black faces.

The point being this: The Lie Guys' experiment doesn't just find a troubling pattern in people's willingness to accept casual racism. It speaks to broader sentiments ó fortified by policy and geography ó linking the absence of blackness to desirable living spaces.

It doesn't help that said separation persists in our social circles:

According to recent reports, most white Americans have exclusively white friends, while those with any minority presence in their friend group have just one black friend on average.

It's a pattern that must be broken if any productive interracial dialogue is to be had. And a huge part of the problem remains people's unwillingness to stand up to racism when it doesn't directly disadvantage them.

You didn't need a study to know this, ask any intelligent black person,, who truly understands what's really going on . Another example, I've been saying that hispanics identify with white, as you just saw right there. But on boxden, hispanic people can't be white

Money makes people abandon their morals and principles. I'm shocked.


Very, very predictable responses from this "experiment". If you expected different you just dont know people or human nature very well.





You have any idea how bad cali rent is? Most people would put up with damn near anything for 400$ a month.

Sooo lemme get this straight... the #1 k!ller of black men is murder yet the black people polled were majority against the death penalty for convictions of murder, and black voters were against the 3 strike rule and trying juveniles as adults

Glorifying Criminals is serious issue within the black community.. this poll says a lot about how each community chooses to deal with criminals

However, if the murder is committed by a white I bet that poll would be 75-80% in favor of the death penalty
we probably choose to have more leniency on criminals because we know firsthand how dirty the system is and how it criminalizes everything. we have been convicted of sh*t we didn't do far more than anyone else. we get harsher sentences for similar crimes. we also recognize that the system was never set up to ensure that we receive justice and in fact has always been used against us from the very start.

glorifying criminals is an AMERICAN thing not just black. look at all the crime dramas on tv and at the movies. look at the GODFATHER and all the mob movies. Jesse James, John Dillinger, Billy the Kid, The Wolf of Wallstreet, Breaking Bad. White people glorify crime too. The difference is black people seem to have more compassion and forgiveness even when it seems unreasonable (forgiving whites for all the wicked sh*t they've done and still do).

you said more blacks would be in favor of the rip penalty if the k!ller is white. that is nonsense. how many white people have been executed for k!lling blacks? NONE. but why am i talking to you cuz you're an AGENT

Just wondering whos to blame for those black people that commit the crimes that even put them in touch with the justice system
mostly white folks who make laws that criminalize EVERYTHING. then white folks with badges who unfairly target blacks for the same sh*t that whites do. then the white folks in robes who unfairly sentence us to football numbers. then the whites who act like the sh*t isn't true when we speak out about it. most n*ggas get arrested for petty sh*t like marijuana, disorderly conduct (which can be damn near anything) and other minor sh*t that whites often catch breaks for.

Laws are laws and are pretty common in democracies bro

You are still side stepping the issue of personal responsibility

all those unfair laws and sentences can be avoided by personal choice.. the system does not force anyone

Stop actin like a victim

an UNJUST law is No law at all. its judicial code. just cuz somebody tells us we can't do something doesn't mean we shouldn't. but i am a victim. stop acting like a perp/oppressor
