In US 6,300 People Evicted Every Day, Mainly Blacks

In the United States, 6,300 people are evicted every day, according to a new, one of its kind project called the Eviction Lab. The project launched by Princeton University sheds light on U.S.’s eviction and housing crisis, as it sifted through nearly 80 million evictions going back to 2000. The lab found that in 2016 alone, there were nearly four evictions filed every minute. One of the main findings of the newly launched lab is the deep racial undertone behind a vast majority of these evictions.
