Dear Editor:
Honza Prchal's letter (02/05/08 ID) argues that the connection between race and subprime lending is overstated in a recent letter by Semakweli (2/04/08 ID). There are some people who also argued that the connection between race and Katrina was overdone as well, so I suppose that Mr. Prchal's letter is in good company. Ironically, none other than Lou Dobbs himself is now highlighting the devastation that mortgage foreclosures are causing in black neighborhoods, a worthwhile change of pace from his obsession with the Mexican border. I have not seen any coverage on his show, so far, however, of the same devastation that subprime foreclosures are causing in Latino neighborhoods, nor do I expect to any time soon. This is not to say that whites, particularly among the elderly, have not also been taken in by the subprime lending scam which, according to a recent Financial Times article, is now under investigation by the FBI and SEC. One hopes that appropriate prison sentences will eventually be meted out to the predatory lenders involved, irrespective of the race of their millions of victims, who include many legal and illegal immigrants as well as US citizens.

Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY

Dear Editor:
With regard to Honza Prchal's latest letter (02/05/08 ID), denying my letter's claim that there is a big racial element in subprime lending, I can only say that I admire his letter's vision of America as a color blind society, where race and class do not count, whether one is talking about mortgage lending, immigration, or whatever. But, compared with the reality of today's America, is this vision anything more than a fantasy?
