REDLINING: denying, or charging more for, services such as banking, insurance, access to health care, or even supermarkets, or denying jobs to residents in particular, often racially determined, areas.
--> "Redlining" because it refers to the practice of marking a red line on a map to delineate the
area where banks would not invest.
BLOCKBUSTING: for-profit catalyst for WHITE FLIGHT
and a means to control non-white migration.
-->Real estate agents would facilitate black people buying a house in a white neighborhood, either by
buying the house themselves, or via a white proxy buyer, and then re-selling it to the black family.
-->The remaining white inhabitants fearing devalued residential property, would quickly sell, usually at a loss.
