@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (1) TY for this thread, @headsnipe011! Turns out it's a really interesting case of severe discrimination that will (rightly) cost the realtors and homeowner a lot of money!

@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (2) The respondents discriminated against two families. One family had arranged a suitable subletting arrangement when they suddenly had to move across the country to care for a terminally ill brother.

Everything was fine until the respondents met the other family.
@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (3) The realtors are the sloppiest realtors I've ever seen. Dropped themselves right in it, probably to the tune of over $100k, minimum, and massive reputational damage.

Not only did they cause humiliation & distress to the families, ...
@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (4) The family that had to break the lease early because of the brother's terminal illness ended up having to pay $15,500 for breaking the lease, and they had to deal with the discrimination and its aftermath at the same time as everything else.
@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (5) Both families were discriminated against, because they are Native American and/or "Mexican American," which I interpret as born in Mexico and (I believe) lawfully migrated to the US & now have resident/citizen status. Race and "national origin" are protected classes by law.
@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (6) This case would be pursued by HUD whichever party was in power but I will say this: Trump's HUD, DOJ & other agencies have been delivering on civil rights enforcement since day one. Evidence of this abounds.

Trump is NOT racist. We supporters are NOT racist.
@Headsnipe011 @drawandstrike @ThomasWictor @HNIJohnMiller @CatesDuane @rising_serpent @_ImperatorRex_ @Debradelai @TheChiIIum (7) Reading the charging document for this housing discrimination case is a helpful way to get more informed about how civil rights are enforced in America in 2018.

Fight for your rights. Good luck to these families, I hope you win big.
