Will minorities be able to fully participate in the high growth areas of America? Are Denver, Houston and Phoenix the new land of opportunity for minorities? Or is their growth pattern merely replicating that of the older areas? Housing is crucial in this arena. What are the facts? In this pathbreaking effort blending empirical data and insight, the challenge becomes evident.Hispanics are as much the victims of discrimination as are blacks. This is the conclusion of this major new study of discrimination and segregation faced by blacks and Hispanics in Sunbelt cities. The book evaluates the fair housing efforts of selective states and cities in the Sunbelt region and identifies an agenda for state and local action.
