Speaking of "white socialism", "redlining" precluded many non-whites from access to what is, in essence*, the PUBLIC'S CREDIT but for private gain.

"Redlining" is now illegal so richer, more so-called "creditworthy" non-whites can now loot the poorer same as whites do.

*Because of extensive privileges for depository/lending institutions.
