After a hard day, we all like to pour a glass of wine, go on Zillow, and dream. But, to make that Zillow house a reality, you have to have a good credit score. A credit score is an unbiased algorithm that tells lenders whether you can pay a mortgage. But what if it isn’t unbiased at all?

    How is it that between unemployment and food stamps, there is a math equation to tell someone that is broke, they are making too much money but not enough money to collect food stamps."Tommy Aint Got No Job" -Martin

    Credit scores were created to try to keep suburbs white, and to prevent homeownership for all minorities!!! They are heavily oppressive, and it was by design!! Great segment Amber!!

    My potential lender said he didn't contact me due to him having covid19 for two weeks, but it only took him three months to reestablish contact with me!

  8. David Hoshour says:

    Clearly the people with low credit scores will be the poor and minorities. This is another way for the wealthy to stop you from moving to their neighborhood!

    I'll gladly turn over my 530 credit score.

  13. Gargwin Vinesnake says:

    Seperated for two years. Paid ex their equity. Haven't missed a single mortgage or bill payment, finished paying off my car, same job for six years, CREDIT SCORE SAYS NO I can't have the mortgage just under my name because I can't afford it alone!? So when mortgage comes up for renewal if ex doesn't sign on I may not be able to keep my house.

  14. Randy C says:

    Americans are so obsessed about China's social credit system, they're not seeing the flaws at home.

  19. Alexander de Burdegala says:

    Car dealers don't pick your interest rate. The banks do.

  20. S says:

    Credit should be done differently. Your score should only go down if you stop paying your bills. That's the only way it should go down.
