For their Left and the Law segment, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker discuss The Color of Law, a book published in 2017 by Richard Rothstein. The author explains how white supremacy and structural racism have been reproduced by laws around real estate and the intergenerational transfer of wealth. Jan and Mike also discuss how these same laws have shaped Oregon's racial history.
