New Yorkers of color break down structural barriers in new Racial Justice Commission report


Brooklynites of color face myriad forms of racism wrought by structural forces in city law, according to a new report by the city’s Racial Justice Commission.

The report is the first by the Commission, which was empaneled by Mayor Bill de Blasio earlier this year to identify areas of city law perpetuating racism and recommend charter revisions to correct them.
