Redlining in DSM

Since its inception America has fostered the discrimination and segregation of races not considered to be “white”. Our country, while distilling in many the value of individual freedom, was ultimately built by slave labor and the decimation of native populations. The establishment and success of our economy have deep roots of white supremacy.
