Response to Kind of Blue (Reply #6)

7. Well

Generall, when white people refuse to sell to people of color, the reason given has usually been that they are afraid having a black family live in the neighborhood will cause property values to fall. Some are blatant and will outright say they won't sell due to race, but most will use dog whistles - they'll talk about property values, even when the real issue is race. So more people would say "yes" to a question where a dog whistle was used, like "property values."
