The Paradox Of The U.S. Black Home Ownership Rate

In a recent article here on the Biden housing plan, I mentioned the Paradox of the Black Home Ownership Rate – in the 30 years from 1940 to 1970 when housing discrimination against Blacks was legal and horrific, the U.S. Black home ownership rate nearly doubled going from 23% to 42%, but 50 years after the 1968 Fair Housing Act became law, the U.S. Black home ownership rate was essentially the same as in 1968. It was 41% in 2018. That paradox seems impossible but it’s true. 

Another hidden truth is that from 1940 to 1970, the Black home ownership rate increased more in the South than in the North. For example, from 1940 to 1970 the Black home ownership rate in Mississippi increased 31 percentage

Home Depot Says Black Friday Prices Available Throughout Holiday Season

(RTTNews) – Home improvement retailer Home Depot (HD), is taking a different approach this holiday season as it will offer Black Friday discounts for two months, beginning in early November through December.

The retailer in statement said customers can enjoy stress-free shopping this holiday season, as the company is reinventing Black Friday shopping keeping in mind the safety and wellbeing of customers during the COVID-19 period.

The deals will be available both in its stores and online, however, mobile app users will get exclusive early access to some discounts in November.

Home Depot changes Black Friday shopping, offers 2 months of deals

Home Depot is joining a slate of retailers in “reinventing” Black Friday this year in an effort to prevent large crowds from gathering amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rather than have a single day of deals, the home improvement retailer announced Wednesday it will offer sales throughout the holiday season.

TARGET TO CLOSE THANKSGIVING DAY, START HOLIDAY DEALS IN OCTOBER TO AVOID CHRISTMAS RUSH

Although stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, both in-store and online sales will begin in early November and last through December, according to an announcement on the company’s website.

With new cases of the virus rising in some areas of the country, retailers are increasingly trying to find ways to prevent crowds from gathering during the holiday rush.

But don’t fret. The home improvement retailer said it’s just taking a different approach to the annual one-day deep discounts bonanza that occurs the day after Thanksgiving.

Instead of a single day, Home Depot said it will offer Black Friday discounts for two months, beginning in early November through December.

The retailer, in a statement on its website, said it decided to “reinvent” Black Friday this year in order to reduce stress for consumers who typically rush to stores in droves to grab the best deals. Given the pandemic, the company indicated that maintaining safety was also a factor in its decision.

While the deals will be available both in its stores and online, it said mobile app users will get exclusive early access to some discounts in November.

Home Depot on Wednesday previewed its 2020 holiday shopping season — adapted to pandemic times, when crowds are taboo but customers still want deals.

Among the changes, the home improvement retailer said in a post on its website that Black Friday specials will stretch on for nearly two months, rather than take place on a single day. It will collaborate with Pinterest to inspire a different kind of DIY project: Making meaningful, homemade gifts. And it will nudge customers toward its mobile app by putting promotions there first. 

The company emphasized an option that could gain greater popularity this year, though it was available in years past: Getting a fresh Christmas tree delivered to a customer’s doorstep.
