WHY: The history of the predatory lending practices used by banks today began as a tool to prevent black men from owning land after emancipation. Later, these practices also targeted immigrants and women as they sought to build wealth and economic security by owning property. They’ve been used to steal the wealth of BIPOC and female-headed households ever since.
