Black, Homeless and Burdened by L.A.’s Legacy of Racism

Updated: Oct 28, 2023

According to a report by the New York Times, black people make up only 8% of L.A. County’s population, but 42% of homeless Angelenos are black1. The report highlights how systemic racism and discrimination have contributed to this disparity. Source


The criminal justice system, the history of redlining, and modern-day housing discrimination have all played a role in the fragmentation of black communities in the city, fueling displacement and resulting in tens of thousands of black people losing their homes. Source


It is important to note that this is not just a problem in Los Angeles. Nationally, black people account for 13.4% of the population but are 39.8% of the homeless population. A report by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found racism to be the root cause of black homelessness, saying that black Angelenos continue to face discrimination in many areas. Source
