Discrimination is alive and well in the housing industry, according to the results of a new study. The non-profit fair housing agency "Home Opportunities Made Equal," also known as HOME, yesterday released information showing many local apartment complexes ignore fair housing laws. The study was conducted by two testers, one white, one black, who called and visited a sampling of complexes inquiring about available units. Results showed, on average, the white tester was given preferential treatment 44-percent of the time.
