It's so disheartening how we have created a system where BIPOC families are unable to get the appropriate means to own a home. I am fortunate enough to have had assistance with purchasing my home in a predominantly white area. When I was searching for my home, I remember avoiding areas which looked "rough" or "run down". This was my own biases and the actions of my white culture pressing on me these areas are "unsafe". They aren't unsafe, they just have not been given the same equal opportunities other areas are given because of the history of red lining.
