You are protected against unlawful housing discrimination on the basis of your race and/or color. If you are denied an opportunity to purchase, rent, finance or insure a home or apartment, or are given false information about a sale, rental, loan or insurance policy because of your race or color, you are a victim of illegal housing discrimination. It is also illegal for landlords or other housing providers to treat existing residents or tenants, or their guests, differently because of their race or color. Discrimination based on race or color can often be subtle, so subtle that victims of discrimination may be unaware that they were treated differently because of their race or color.
