Indians fight discrimination when renting homes
Friday, November 21, 2003

A study conducted for the Department of Housing and Urban Development found that Native Americans are more likely than any other racial or ethnic group to face discrimination when trying to rent housing.

Native American renters were discriminated against 29 percent of the time last year, according to the study. In comparison, Hispanic renters faced discrimination 26 percent of the time, African-Americans 22 percent and Asians 21 percent.

The type of discrimination Natives encountered was harsher, the study also said. Most often, Native renters were told units weren't available while white renters were.
