OKLAHOMA CITY — A new study has found that redlining is a serious problem in Oklahoma.
The study by the nonprofit Oklahoma Redlining Coalition shows that the number of Oklahoma redlining complaints have increased by more than 200% since 2009, according to a release from the coalition.
The redlining phenomenon began in Oklahoma in the late 1990s, when many of the city’s middle-class families moved into the suburbs and lived in homes that were mostly white.
Redlining is when a neighborhood is redlined because of a person’s income or credit rating.
It is a system that prevents businesses and people who want to do business in a neighborhood from opening stores or hiring workers.
Oklahoma redlining laws make it very difficult for people who work in an area to relocate or invest in the area.
In fact, if a business or company is not eligible to move to a new business location in Oklahoma, it may not even be able to locate in that new location.
Redlining has been a problem in the state for decades, according a report from the nonprofit, Redlining and the Restitution of Racial Justice.
The Oklahoma Redlinement Coalition estimates that at least 40% of all Oklahoma households are affected by redlining.
Redline and the restIn the study, the coalition also found that people who live in Oklahoma redlined areas have experienced a dramatic drop in the number and size of businesses in their area.
For example, the redlined population dropped from 1.7 million in 2009 to 1.3 million in 2019.
The number of businesses dropped from 10,000 in 2009 and grew to 26,000 today.
Redlined residents also had an average household income of $59,858 in 2019, compared to $69,569 in 2009.
The average household size dropped from 4.8 people to 3.9 people.
Redlining also decreased the amount of homes that people own from 9.2 to 8.6.
According to the coalition, the number one problem in redlining was that a small number of people could afford to relocate to Oklahoma’s suburbs, and people with middle-income incomes who could not afford to move were forced to live in the suburbs.
Many of these people were living in houses with four bedrooms or more.
Reducing redliningThe coalition estimates that redliners had a $1.1 billion impact on Oklahoma’s economy in 2019 alone.
Redlining has long been a part of Oklahoma’s economic development model, according the coalition’s executive director, David Siegel.
Redlining has reduced the value of homes in Oklahoma’s metro areas and reduced the amount people can invest in Oklahoma as a state, according Siegel and the coalition�s study.
Redlancing has also hurt the state�s job prospects, which have suffered as the state has lost more than 300,000 jobs since 2009.
Redlines have been a key part of redlining in Oklahoma for decades.
Redliners used redlining to avoid taxes.
Red lines also helped redlisters avoid having to pay property taxes.
Red lines also allowed redlishers to live near schools, businesses and other amenities, according Kari O�Neill, the executive director of Redlinering.
Redliners used redline to move away from redlined neighborhoods and into suburbs, where they could live cheaper and better.
Redlins had a negative impact on the economy because they limited opportunity, according O�Neil.
Red line families also benefited financially because they were able to spend more money and invest in their communities, she said.
Redliner’s impactRedlining was not just about being able to move in and live in a community.
Redlineers used it to keep property values low and keep people out of Oklahoma, said O�Meara Smith, the co-chair of Redlining.
Redlines also created an environment that allowed people to live off the grid, away from schools, hospitals and other facilities, O�McEldowney said.
A lot of people were very much aware of the impacts that redline had, but people didn�t know how much they were hurting their communities and communities of color, O’Mearac said.
Redlined communities have been at risk for some of the same things that redlined communities were at risk of, she added.
RedLine and the RESTitution of racial justiceOklahoma Redlination Coalition is one of several organizations working to end redlining by making it harder for people with low-income or no credit histories to move into Oklahoma.
Red lining has a number of causes.
In 2019, redlining had a devastating impact on Oklahomans who were living paycheck to paycheck.
Red Line families also suffered in 2019 because redlining allowed people with lower incomes to move back to Oklahoma, Ohernally said.
