The Thompson v. HUD court ruling found that the department was liable in the concentration of poor minorities in certain areas of Baltimore. What steps can HUD take to remedy the situation and desegregate the country’s public housing?
Racial segregation has many causes, but in January a federal court decided that one cause of segregation in Baltimore was the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In the latest of a series of rulings spanning decades, HUD has been told clearly it must correct its public housing policies that have led to extreme concentrations of poverty in Baltimores inner city along with racial segregation. Can HUD undo its past?
