Home and Away: Racism in Home-buying and Travel

What’s up with Black families being blamed for lowering property values? Lenya took a stroll in a nice Black neighborhood, so she and Alexandra discussed why she would and wouldn’t move out of her nice white neighborhood. Also, Lenya talks about what Black people have to do to sell their homes, and an anecdote from her life where a sale fell through when buyers found out she was Black, but it sold when the buyers didn’t know that.

This expands to a conversation about how to stand up for yourself in the face of covert racism. Lenya mentions TikToks like this one: https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMRTronGQ/ that explain how Black people need to hold their ground.

Alexandra checks in about the Tough Mudder she’s preparing for, plus some travel horror stories including a potential stabbing at Disneyland, and white people taking a Black woman’s seat on a plane.
