Since the housing market crisis, many minority people have lost their homes without sympathy or hope to recuperate their investments or dreams. Therefore, for this project, I am interested in exploring how gentrification, dislocation and segregation have affected minorities. How lending and the housing market has used racism and discrimination in their practices against minorities. My work is to reach a wide audience of all ages, so they can learn from a young age of the implications that gentrification and displacement can cause and to further inspect these unprofessional conduct from lenders. My goal is to make awareness from a digital platform to help future buyers, sellers, renters, etc. to be more careful when it comes to injustices in the housing market.
