Housing segregation is as the taken for granted to any feature of urban life in the United States (Squires, Friedman, & Siadat, 2001). It is the application of denying minority groups, especially African Americans, equal access to housing through misinterpretation, which denies people of color finance services and opportunities to afford decent housing. Caucasians usually live in areas that are mostly white communities. However, African Americans are most likely lives in areas that are racially combines with African Americans and Hispanics.

Squires, Friedman and Saidat discuss a study that explores the types of neighborhood services and characteristics families seek out, the different ways racial groups go in for housing opportunities and attitudes that race and racial discrimination affect housing opportunities. They explain the different perspectives on segregation. They are focuses on the three theories. The first theory involves individual choices, arguing that most people generally prefer to live in the same social or ethnic neighborhood. The second focuses economics arguing the spatial awareness of racial groups reflects the financial status of groups. The third theories focuses on a range of biased private practices and public policies that limits housing opportunities for minority groups and serves to create and be responsible for segregation housing. This study used a telephone survey consisting 921 adults from Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia metropolitan areas. They analyzed the data from Caucasian and African American participants that have met the requirements for income, age and race to be part of the study.
According to the findings of the study, African Americans do not have the same experiences and do not enjoy...
