​ HUD finds housing discrimination 'hidden' but prevalent. Blacks, Asians are shown fewer homes, national study shows.

“Just because it’s taken on a hidden form doesn’t make (housing discrimination) any less harmful,” says Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan.

Hispanic homebuyers have made strides, but Asians and African-Americans looking to purchase a home still are told about or shown far fewer homes than are equally qualified white consumers, a national study has determined. Hispanic renters, however, face the same challenges as other minority groups in finding apartments, according to the report, issued June 11, 2013 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Urban Institute.
