Donald Trump's racial discrimination problem
In the 1970s, he was sued by the feds for not renting to African-Americans
...
Donald Trump in 1994
In an episode early in Donald Trump's career, his New York real estate company was sued by the federal government for discriminating against potential black renters. After a lengthy legal battle, it ultimately agreed to wide-ranging steps to offer rentals to nonwhites.
The little-remembered case provides crucial context for the current discussion centering on Trump and race. The celebrity businessman made news last month when he declared, "I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks."
He has recently come under fire for attacks on President Obama that critics have described as racially tinged.
...
Also yesterday, Trump told a black reporter, unprompted, "Look I know you are a big Obama fan."
The discrimination case began in the earliest days of Trump's career, when he was still in his 20s. Fred Trump, Donald's father, was, unlike his son, a self-made man.
...
But in the early 1970s, Donald was made president of the family company. One of Donald's first challenges came in October 1973, when the Justice Department hit the Trump Organization with a major discrimination suit for violating the Fair Housing Act. The Times reported: ... the Government contended that Trump Management had refused to rent or negotiate rentals "because of race and color. It also charged that the company had required different rental terms and conditions because of race and that it had misrepresented to blacks that apartments were not available. The journalist Gwenda Blair reported in her 2005 Trump biography that while Fred Trump had sought to combat previous discrimination allegations through "quiet diplomacy," Donald decided to go on the offensive.
...
A few months after the government filed the suit, Trump gave a combative press conference at the New York Hilton in which he went after the Justice Department for being too friendly to welfare recipients. He "accused the Justice Department of singling out his corporation because it was a large one and because the Government was trying to force it to rent to welfare recipients," the Times reported. Trump added that if welfare recipients were allowed into his apartments in certain middle-class outer-borough neighborhoods, there would be a "massive fleeing from the city of not only our tenants, but communities as a whole."
A federal judge threw out Trump's countersuit a month later, calling it a waste of "time and paper." Writes Blair in her book: Donald testified repeatedly that he had nothing to do with renting apartments, although in an application for a broker's license filed at the same time he said that he was in charge of all rentals.
In 1975, Trump ultimately came to a far-reaching agreement with the DOJ in which he and the company did not admit guilt but agreed not to discriminate and to take steps to open its housing stock to more nonwhites.
