Banks were not forced to make loans to peple who culd not pay it back.
This is a lie.
Now, when the propaganda says "race", change that to match reality and insert in its place "places where the history is poor investment and the bank loses money".
The link to race was, it was a coincidence the zones where banks lost money also were predominantly black. Banks don't care what you're race is. They only care that you pay your goddam note and the interest that allows them to not collapse.
Banks were faced with the threat of law suits if they did not make loans to these zones that historically caused them to lose money. The New York Times published an article in 1999 describing Cill Clinton applying the power of the White House to that threat. And, that article also predicted what we saw later in 2008.
And, lo and behold, Bill Clinton applying the weight of the White House to force banks to make loans in areas that historically caused the banks to lose money almost collapsed the entire banking system of the United States.
