The pervasiveness of race-based discrimination — and its persistence in overt form until recently — are sober reminders to us all of how far we have to go in achieving true equity. “The U.S. Supreme Court ruled such covenants to be unenforceable in Shelley v. Kraemer (1948), but Alexandria developers continued to insert race-based restrictions in their deeds until the early 1960’s.” For more on this topic — quite consistent with Prof Moon’s excellent research — see Richard Rothstein’s book The Color of Law.

Thank you, Mark, for this important post.
