Redlining is illegal. It's evil twin Steering is also illegal. When I bought a house in 2005, I wanted to see a house in North Minneapolis that fit what I was looking for. My realtor at the time said, "I'm not supposed to say this, but if you were my sister, I wouldn't allow you to buy a house south of 38th Street." And so I ended up on 43rd street in between two white-owned homes. Steering is still a way to make sure people stay in or out of certain neighborhoods and contributes to everything that was talked about in the video. The majority of kids I work with live in deep poverty. Fifty-four percent of the kids I work with identify as POC. I see everyday how being POC impacts them regardless of their income and POC kids in poverty have more barriers than the white kids in poverty. The schools with more Black and Brown youth are deemed "dangerous". (We actually have no "dangerous schools in my community) and their neighborhoods are neglected while good roads, amenities and sparkling new schools abound where I live. And WHY do I live where I live? It was chosen because of proximity to my husband's work. I loved that the school we were originally zoned for 10 years ago was diverse both racially and socioeconomically. Our area has grown though and since then, a new school was built and our zone moved. The new "highly desired" school is 10% free/reduced lunch, while the other school soared to nearly 80% F/R. The racial diversity at our newly designated school is abysmal, so now my Kindergartener next year, who is POC, will be attending with nearly all white children. The majority of the other POC kids, will be in his same situation - adopted into white families. I know I'm rambling now, but these are all things that weigh heavily on me. As my husband and I look for land to build and have more outdoor space (I recognize my privilege in being able to do that), we have to get on the same page of prioritizing diverse schools, again, both racially and socioeconomically, not just for the benefit of our kids, but for all of us.
