I had to read this essay.
“…Housing discrimination was technically illegal at the time, but that didn’t stop the city officials from barring certain groups of people from buying or renting property in the more affluent areas in Hollandus Landing.”
Woah, man. That even happened here in a Yankee state let alone a place within driving distance from my hometown of Beloit?
“Many of the realtors would turn down minorities and even poorer white people in these areas despite having some vacancies. However, whenever a family that would ‘fit in’ within this community, they would sell or lease the houses faster than you could say ‘gated community’.”
I didn’t expect this much depth from a fantasy author of all things.
“Not to play my own piccolo or anything of that nature, I did get the idea of annexing some of the characters from my Edmunston story from this research.”
Dude, he should get a medal for writing this. This shouldn’t be just an essay, I should put some rhymes to this.
“Bolatito…” Seble broke my concentration. “What do you think of it?”
