It’s the sound of magic that happens in the classic Disney movie, Cinderella.
Frankly, it may seem that with the passage of any law, magic happened. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo: everything will be fine now in the world.
Unfortunately, laws aren’t magic because those laws don’t magically prevent violations from happening. At best, the laws provide for a possible remedy if there is evidence of the violation and the offender is arrested. But it’s a big IF.
Likewise, but unfortunately, inequitable housing still exists despite 54 years of federal legislation.
In the end, laws may not prevent inequitable housing, but ethical agents can.
