Real Estate Agents Pushing Black Homebuyers To Purchase Polluted Properties

Real Estate Agents Pushing Black Homebuyers To Purchase Polluted Properties

According to a new study, racism is alive
and well in the real estate business. A new study came out this week showing that
real estate agents across the country are more likely to show African-American home
buyers homes in polluted areas near toxic waste sites than they are to show those same
homes to equally qualified white home buyers. Basically what’s happening, according to this
report, is that real estate agents are trying to push black people to buy homes in areas
that are so polluted that it’s almost guaranteed to make them sick meanwhile they’re almost
refusing to show these same homes in these polluted areas to white people even when income
levels are consistent among the two groups, they’re equally qualified to purchase these
homes, they just don’t want the white people to live in those polluted areas. Now this report is actually based on information
gathered by Housing and Urban Development so gathered by the government itself where
they actually sent out actors, white actors, black actors, Asian actors to pose as home
buyers. Every single one of them came to a real estate
agent with the exact same income level, exact same criteria, same everything. The only thing that was different was their
race. And almost every time, the real estate agents
would go out there show the black buyers the polluted homes, the homes where the soil toxic
levels were at a point where it would almost give you cancer after a year or two. Air pollution levels so bad that you were
almost guaranteed to develop some kind of respiratory illness and they rarely, if ever,
ask the white people, and most of the time the Asian people, to even consider those properties. Real estate agents right now, according to
this report, are engaged in systemic housing discrimination. And yes, that is illegal. What needs to be done here, rather than what
the National Association of Realtors is doing, saying well, we’re going to work on training. No, no, no. People need to go to jail, okay. You broke the law. You’re engaging in real estate racism, environmental
racism. Furthermore, this study actually confirms
what many other studies have already found, which is that the African-American and Latino
community are more likely to be affected by pollution by any other population as a whole. And now we have a good reason for that. It’s because we have racist real estate agents,
who may not even realize they’re racist but it’s built into their industry to push minorities
into these heavily polluted areas that eventually will get them killed or at least make them
sick enough to help destroy their lives. These agents should not just be ashamed of
themselves, but as I pointed out, this is housing discrimination, which is illegal,
so these people should be prosecuted. You want to solve a problem, throw some people
in jail. That is the only way that you can send a message
to this entire industry that this is not okay and that we understand what you’re doing and
we won’t stand for it one bit and that you’ll never get away with it. Because until we do that, this is going to
continue. The National Association of Realtors is going
to say well, we did everything we could, we gave them the right training. They know to not do this but some of them
are still doing it. Good. Fire ’em. Prosecute ’em. Stick ’em in jail. That’s how you send a message and it’s a message
that, apparently the real estate industry desperately needs to hear.

  1. ALWAYS HAS BEEN, They also, deliberately keep our home market prices down.

  2. So mean.

  3. Should polluted homes be available for sale? What recourse is there for buyers who fall victim to these practices?

  4. Thank you for this information.

  5. I find this report insulting!
    1 – As if Black Home Buyer don't have enough sense (unintelligent) to research the area in which they are considering buying.
    2 – As if there are not Black racist doing bad things to other races within their profession.
    3 – Yes sure there is more White on Black racism because there are MORE Whites in this country, it's averages therefore we hear more of it, but being Irish and African American I am TIRED of this discussion being so ONE SIDED! If you only knew what the few Black racist of my family think! How they respond to me being half a demon, untrustworthy, weak. If you knew some of the HORRIBLE, bully-ish, harmful things they do to White people! I moved to the other side of the U.S. to get the hell away from them before something bad happened to them or me.

    We who are SANE (NOT racist) NEED to put ALL of racism (mental illness) in check! These things you report are NOTHING new! These things just STIR the SHIT POT! Had it been me I would have WARNED ALL SANE American's "RESEARCH BEFORE you buy a Home! The INSANE are trying to HARM you!" But No! You stirred the pot a little more. Part of the fucking problem!

  6. Read up on red versus green properties.  Not the Monopoly game ones, but how the system has been rigged against minorities.

  7. Realtors, as a group, are among the most racist "professionals" in existence. They are primarily responsible for the perpetuation of actual segregation in this country.

  8. Redlining is a very serious issue and it still continues to happen in the black community

  9. …avoid bougie looking "white" agent and do your homework! knowledge is the King!

  10. Racism never went anywhere just more people are getting exposed publicly for it now.

  11. It is so evil to sell anybody tainted properties. These unethical relators need to go to jail!!

  12. Negativity is all you're about

  13. i wonder if there ever be point in time when people see everyone that is human equal better education might help

  14. ok, I'm not American but… why can such places be sold at all? Shouldn't that be illegal?

  15. that's been going on for a while just like building government assistance homes they don't care where they build them as long as they build them

  16. Do not need training . They need to be fired and prosecuted.

  17. This truly grieves me that in thus day & age we black folks are still dealing with this mess,

  18. Capitalism and Racism go hand in hand.

  19. We shouldn't be selling any polluted properties to anyone. we need to clean these things up

  20. That is pretty sinister.

  21. Breaking news: New study finds no changes to what everyone already knew. Remember people – this is what OUR tax dollars are being spent on. Studies to prove things aren't any better. Not to be used to make things better, just to show things are improving.

  22. You people believe everything our liberal media pushes …that this is true is huge laugh. Where is the proof anyone did anything close to this

  23. Expose more places that discriminate! Use those iPhones for good… The dairy factories are close to places high in radiation and that milk goes to black and brown neighborhoods too!

  24. Isn't this more like slow genocide?

  25. Buyer beware!!! And it is attempted murder.

  26. This is false information meant to get liberals all fired up.

  27. Genocide by Realestate…God help us all.

  28. Trump 2020!

  29. God Bless You Mr. Cousins!

  30. On the plus side, soon there won't be anything but polluted properties for regular people to buy so it won't matter what your race is. Problem solved, sadly.

  31. I hope the black community are watching this video and do their research on which areas are polluted when they're planning to buy a home.

  32. Racism is alive and well everywhere

  33. This is awful. Jim Crow lives.

  34. 2018 and we are still dealing with racism

  35. Trump and is racist supporters firts

  36. The agents? The polluters are really the first to blame and put in jail. This is really a disgrace. I would not want my family to be stuck in a trash pit and I suspect neither would an African American. So just cut out this shit once and for all. Clean up the cesspools created by factories, farms, etc. and stop the pullution of the earth and air.

  37. well maybe if black people could stop being referred as african americans than ok they will listen.

  38. Murder agents… America is Great Again now!

  39. also the areas where registered sex offenders live as well.none of this is surprising to me.Americans just should be smart and do their research.that's it!!

  40. It concerns me they are even allowed to sell anything toxic. Was just about to ask why the EPA isn’t requiring clean up before they could sell before I remembered.

  41. If these homes are that toxic and dangerous then they shouldn't be up for sale or rent to anyone regardless of what colour they are.

  42. If a real estate agent tried that with me they getting cussed out, and I'll be suing their asses lol.

  43. I wonder – did Farron supply a link to this report? I would like to read it.

  44. Duh-doy….
    Welcome to America.
    The only people that knows this nearly without equivocation are African-Americans. Racism is "built into" America.

  45. That's illegal and unethical and its violation of the law

  46. This country is getting more and more disgraceful every day. So sad. 🙁

  47. Before this is all over, I fear the US will need its own Nuremberg trials.

  48. I don't understand how anyone is even allowed to sell a home that is so polluted that it can kill somebody. Anyone who has put a toxic waste dump like that on the market knowingly, should be in fucking jail.

    I know that meth labs have been sold without any remediation at all, and people who move in and out with leukemia. The chemicals that they use to cook meth, soak into the drywall, or the insulation. People will buy these houses for cheap, not realize why they were so cheap and then suddenly start find that their hair is falling out. You can't just move into a house that has ammonium chloride without suffering terrible side effects.

    Anyone who puts these houses up on the market knowingly, needs to go to jail. Selling these kinds of homes to anyone is evil, but selling them only to one race is eugenics.

  49. They do it to everyone

  50. I went through this, changed agents 3 times.

  51. These pale faced invaders have a long history of infesting a area and then lying to the colored indigenous people of the land, by convincing them that they are of African descent. Wow, is a good thing that my people are waking up to these lies for centuries. Take your ass back to Europe.

  52. This is sum BS 😱😱

  53. Yes it is. It's also premeditated because they've been planing it.

  54. This is not surprising. Realtors r nasty individuals that r straight out greedy, dishonest, phony, subjective, & yes, indifferent to ppl who look different or sometimes similar than themselves. They r a vulturistic bunch of ppl. The Bible speaks of Esau living fat off the land because they were not giving land initially by the Creator, so their materialism and shallow greedy coveteousness is their core. Unfortunately, other nations adopt this pathetic behavior as well. We r in the last days where their dirty deeds will continue to be expose & as their sins reach unto the heavens in regard to their treatment of God's ppl. Judgement is coming to earth!

  55. It's not legal to hide information from buyers, there is a fiduciary obligation to disclose any KNOWN issues. these are either uninformed idiots or unethical evil agents. Ethical Realtors do not do unethical things, EVER!

  56. saying that it's "Built into the industry" is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT!!!! I have worked in real estate for a long time, and NEVER ONCE have I had anyone try to encourage me to do something unethical!! Never! There are unethical people in every industry, and should absolutely be punished, but we don't hold every freaking person in an industry responsible for the actions of those bad actors! I so [email protected]#king mad!!!!!

  57. Is this an old post?

  58. Are these Trump properties?

  59. I love the way you talk!

  60. This is sick. 🤬

  61. I rent…. I am getting calls to see if I want to refinance the loan on my mortgage…. (!?!?!?!) here we go again….

  62. Why are white people so f#$&ing special seriously?


  64. sounds like the Illuminati run shit in the real estate industry or something.

  65. So they committing murder….shocking! 😱

  66. Hehehe. Would have been simpler to ship them back to Africa in the 19th c. Wonder when the race war will begin.

  67. But I was only following order's!!!!

  68. Is air pollution really only concentrated over the bad area of town?

  69. Or, are we looking at people with equal incomes and the white people are being pushed into (better) housing that they really can't afford, only to increase the housing bubble?

  70. Does that mean predatory lenders can be identified by their pointy white hoods?

  71. Im sorry but it is time to separate

  72. Ahhhh … to be a Canadian is so awesome. Tap water is safer than bottled water, polluters are held to account and forced to pay for clean-ups, some even go to jail. Homes and businesses with asbestos and lead can't be sold or rented. Smoke and Co2 detectors are the law.
    The U.S. has more environmental loopholes than grannies knitted blanket and polluters pay for studies to go away.

  73. What also needs to stop is giving these racist a crutch/excuse as in “maybe they don’t realize that they are racist”. These are grown ass men and women. They have either witnessed it, heard of it, or read about racism enough to recognize it. So they know what they’re doing, when they’re doing it and why they’re doing it.

  74. I'm not gonna agree at all with this out landish nonsense. I leave in Georgia homes being bought by all kinds of people who are different in color and religion so that's a lie. I have two relatives in reality business whom dont discreamat. Just more remarkable how low you can be…

  75. The tactics of James Crow esq. in full effect with this bullshit.

  76. Toxic "brownfields" ( meaning nothing much can survive on the land anymore ) are being developed into "luxury" ( only meaning expensive ) high rise condos all over post-industrial cities in New England. Playgrounds for little kids are being erected on dioxin contaminated soil. It's all good for the real estate brokers who take their hefty commissions and never need to consider the cancers and other deadly diseases the mostly brown-skinned buyers will probably develop from prolonged toxic exposure. These brownfield lots were condemned for a good reason not so long ago. If you're white and rich, you don't move into these places. You buy them and rent 'em out to darker folks at exorbitant rates, reaping huge personal profits. Yeah, that's racism, classism and predatory capitalism all rolled into one big polluted package.


  78. You SO CALLED Caucasians are the real MINORITIES. For one…. there's less of your kind because of your recessive genetics. Two….your kind is DYING OUT… DROPPING DEAD LIKE FLIES… THREE. YOUR PEOPLE ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH THE SUN 🌄😄 DUE TO YOUR LACK OF MELANIE.

  79. Nobody should be able to buy polluted soil homes!

  80. those real estate agents doing that need to be shot

  81. Hmm…makes you wonder if this is why Trump's a total mess.

  82. What about Africa America real estate agents?? Are they doing that too? What law is bring broken?

  83. Two words: citizen's arrest. What those folks are committing is a felony.

  84. I love this man.

  85. That's where they belong, with the trash. They will just ruin a good neighborhood anyways.

  86. Very good video. Full of public awareness and useful information. I agree that something very stern needs to be done in order to make a clear statement.

  87. Dude, it's because of price and geo-culture. Stop race baiting this is ridiculous.

  88. I am a Realtor, I never even recommend poor community to my client but there are a lot of top realtor out there who see people no more than a dollars sign.

  89. And the government isn't arresting them because..?

  90. Like President (plus his ancestors, descendants, collaborators), like real estate agents (businessmen, authorities, et al.).

  91. Farron, ALL Realtors are not scum, as you and your followers have all been suggesting! Every profession has its good and bad people. Even journalists such as yourself are NOT thought of in a good light all the time! This video makes my blood boil!

  92. I guess real estate agents are not really racist. THey only know that black people with the same financial background might be less sensitive to environmental issues, thus they are moer wiling to buy. White families may be more sensitive to that, and there may be a greater chance the agent could be sued later because of this unhealthy environment.

  93. Angry yes surprised no because America was founded on anti black racism and these racist ass real estate agents are foot soldiers of the race war that white people started with us. Black people aren't going to ever left alone in this racist ass country. So why in the hell should we stand for the national anthem or celebrate America's bullshit holidays that America wouldn't even have in the first place without slavery. So my enslaved kidnapped ancestors were forced to build this country and didn't get a dime but their descendants bust our asses to get the American Dream and create wealth for ourselves by becoming home owners. Black people cant build good lives for ourselves if we are serious ill or dead.

  94. You are a dumbass

  95. Great Video!

  96. Why don't this guy move into a black neighborhood and see how it's like living with black people.

  97. there are reasons why wherever black people move to they destroy the housing market… it's not racism it's reality that they destroy shit and everyone is sick of dealing with them. Nobody wants to deal with the blacks anymore especially with this blame game and victim mentality shit, slavery was long ago in the past get a fucking life and stop looking for handouts you pieces of shit stop trying to take everything we have worked for or go back to africa stop trying to steal from us

  98. Im not surprise, white people been doing this shit since slavery. Thats why the white race is dying out, you cant keep doing evil to people and think nothing will happen.

  99. They're knowingly putting whole families at risk.
    Sounds like Conspiracy to Harm American citizens,
    Or even Attempted Murder.🤓

  100. White is Neanderthal
