Conservatives Denied Housing Over Political Beliefs, Is This Illegal?
After a story went viral of a woman's roommates searching her room after finding a MAGA hat people cried foul calling this clear political discrimination.
But a second story has emerged this time in Washington DC after a former Fox News staffer revealed she was denied housing twice over her job and her personal politics.
What made this interesting is that political affiliation is a protected human right in DC and this might actually be illegal.
For left wing and right wing activists, I think the issue is pointless as both probably would not want to live together anyway. But we do have evidence showing that Democrats and Republicans are more likely to mistrust each other over politics than over other factors such as race or gender.
