HUD fines Philadelphia real estate company for racial discrimination

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has fined Brotman Enterprises, a Philadelphia-area real estate company, for racial discrimination.

Employees of Brotman Enterprises allegedly steered white testers posing as rental applicants to safer neighborhoods, while steering black testers to one of the company’s properties in a “high-crime, less desirable” neighborhood.

The case was brought to HUD’s attention by the National Fair Housing Alliance, which filed a complaint alleging that Brotman Enterprises was “unlawfully denying housing opportunities to African-American home seekers.”
