    A subtle form of racial discrimination in housing is “racial steering.” Racial steering occurs when real estate agents show prospective buyers only homes in neighborhoods already dominated by that family’s race. This violates the Fair Housing Act of 1968. According to an article in Chance magazine (Vol. 14, no. 2 [2001]), tenants at a large apartment complex filed a lawsuit alleging racial steering.

The data were presented in court to show the locations of recently rented apartments.
