On this week’s episode of our podcast, Talking Tax, we hear from public policy researcher Donnie Charleston, who’s with the group E Pluribus Unum, about how the tax system in America provides white taxpayers with benefits that people of color often don’t or can’t enjoy.

Charleston speaks with Bloomberg Tax’s Yuri Nagano about how the racial history of real estate in the U.S. is still causing great inequality, through cumulative effects of redlining, property valuation, and more.
