African Americans and Housing Discrimination

Having read The Color of Law, you are now an expert on housing discrimination in the United States over the last hundred years.  You have been appointed to a commission on housing and must determine whether the United States is responsible for finding a solution or remedy for the lasting effects of housing discrimination against African Americans.
Rothstein makes  a powerful case in arguing that it is our government’s responsibility, so if you want to take the easier route, one needs to just choose what you feel are his strongest reasons and paraphrase them in your own words.   If you want to argue the government should not attempt to find a remedy or solution, you should look at some of his answers in the frequently asked questions section.  Regardless of your position, you should issues like restrictive covenants, exclusionary zoning laws, redlining and some of the key Supreme Court decisions and civil rights amendments.
Keep in mind that the focus is on why or why not offer a remedy.  You should discuss specific solutions in the conclusion.  You are certainly welcome bring in some of the solutions that Rothstein proposes in the chapter “Considering Fixes” or you can come up with your own solutions or remedies.  The essay should be a minimum of four pages, following MLA format guidelines
