M&T Bank Under Fire for Alleged Racial Discrimination in Lending

A lawsuit filed in Manhattan alleges that M&T Bank violated the 1968 Fair Housing Act by excluding loans from black, Asian and Latino applicants while offering those loans to white applicants with a less qualified background. The controversy follows similar suits by the Justice Department against lenders such as Wells Fargo and Country Wide who have offered different terms for black and Latino buyers. Propublica journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones explains to RT's Ben Swann.
