The rent is too damn high, to the detriment of these communities

For many minority households across the country, the rent really is too damn high.

The share of rent-burdened black and Latino households exceeds 55% in the 100 largest U.S. cities compared to 47% of the overall population, according to a report from real-estate website Trulia that looks at the state of housing nearly 50 years after the passing of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Rent-burdened in this case means those households spend more than 30% of their income on rent. And while the share of rent-burdened households nationwide has fallen since 2010, it’s gone up in black and Latino communities.
