Hate to tell you this, but most areas are landlord-friendly and the behavior
you describe happens every day to many, many tenants no matter what their
minority status is. Actually the status of "tenant" is probably why they're treated
so bad. If you have many neighbors who are treated this way, maybe it's time
you organized them and exercised a bit of collective action. Do something,
don't just complain. (no, I'm not picking on you, most tenants sit and
complain, which is precisely why we're all in a pickle).
