According to some social justice cartographers, when you map the locations of historical racist housing covenants and lay them atop a map of modern Minneapolis you clearly see that “areas of the city where racial covenants were widely used tend to be predominantly white today”. What’s more, “a pattern quickly jumped out: the density of covenants in neighborhoods surrounding city parks, forming a ‘racial cordon’ of white neighborhoods around these public resources”.
