The 2008 financial crash would not have been averted if we had allowed the banks to be more racist. And anyone who thinks otherwise should not be the leader of our party. pic.twitter.com/9DN2hlvIzp

Heard she also attacked Trump and other Republicans as well. https://t.co/BDHEet6SkG

Anyone who hates the idea of President Bloomberg, remember — Mike promised he’d spend up to $2billion supporting whichever Democratic candidate triumphs in the primaries. If that turns out to be Elizabeth Warren, not only will we all be getting a better President, but it will viscerally hurt Mike Bloomberg.
(Yes, he and his vast fortune will be better off under President Warren than President Trump, but she’s been so meeeeean to him already!)
Warren has talked more about the legacy of redlining than any other candidate (still in the race, at least) and it’s been sourced as a root cause of numerous enduring racial disparities in umpteen of her plans.
Which is to say, she didn’t parachute into this issue or news cycle: https://t.co/jDYry0ANmH

African-Americans and properties in previously redlined areas were targeted for subprime loans even when borrowers qualified for a lower interest rate. This made money for banks in the short term, and led to foreclosures and loss of black wealth in the long term. https://t.co/PWTZTrnykB
