On this Day....1968 - President Johnson signed a the 1968 Housing Act (74 hits)

President Johnson signed a the 1968 Housing Act which outlawed discrimination in the sale, rental or leasing of housing.

This bill also made it a crime to interfere with civil rights workers and to cross state lines to incite a riot.

The modern era of hate-crime legislation began in 1968 with the passage of federal statute, 18 U.S. 245, part of the Civil Rights Act which made it illegal to "by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone who is engaged in six specified protected activities, by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin."

However,

"The prosecution of such crimes must be certified by the U.S. attorney general.".
