Credit Scores are the mother of all Jim Crow Laws. It ranks people by age, race, sex, religion,
nationality and disability.
Employers, banks, insurance companies and governments have used credit scores to
discriminate against people of a certain age, race, sex, religion, nationality or disability. They have
used it to deny certain people jobs, insurance, housing, loans, mortgages and restrict travel. And
Governments, companies, real estate brokers, landlords, banks and hotels around the world
have used it to silence public dissent. Be aware, be suspicious and volunteer nothing.
