Podcast Episode 31: Housing Segregation, George Floyd, and Honoring True Housers

For Texas Housers’ latest podcast episode, John and I are experimenting with a new format. We’re discussing what we’re reading, lifting up the work of some great Housers, calling out stuff that ain’t right, and providing brief history lessons in the housing world.

During episode 31, we talk about a piece from the Washington Post that examines how housing segregation impacted the life of George Floyd who grew up in Cuny Homes in Houston, and how systemic housing discrimination continues to leave another generation behind.

We also call out HUD’s latest effort to undermine civil rights progress with its new disparate impact rule and civil rights advocates’ effort to fight back.

Lastly, we discuss the 2020 Texas Houser Awards. You can tune in on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 11 a.m.
