What it looks like when a bank goes out of its way to avoid minorities - The Washington Post
via Akira

"Hudson City, unlike several other banks recently accused of discrimination, wasn't charged with denying loans to qualified minorities, or jacking up their interest rates. In a subtle but more insidious claim, the government says it was 'structuring its business so as to avoid majority-Black-and-Hispanic neighborhoods.' ... Hudson City, in other words, was set up to ensure that few borrowers in minority neighborhoods ever even applied in the first place, according to prosecutors."
