Elizabeth Warren interjected during a discussion about housing to call on the stage to address racial disparities like "red lining," which prevented African Americans from buying homes for decades, and left an enduring legacy of inequality around the country.
"We can no longer pretend that every thing is race neutral," Warren said. "We have got to address race consciously what’s happening in this country."
"It is important to recognize the role that the federal government played for decades and decades in discriminating against African Americans having an opportunity to buy homes," she said. "That's red lining."
Warren then turned to Bloomberg, who once suggested that the end of red lining played a role in the 2008 financial crisis.
"While Mayor Bloomberg was blaming the housing crash of 2008 on African Americans and on Latinos, in fact, I was out there fighting for a consumer agency to make sure people never get cheated again on their mortgages," Warren said, touting her housing plan.
