    1. Keenan calls the practice of drawing arbitrary lending boundaries around areas of perceived environmental risk “bluelining,” and indeed many of the neighborhoods that banks are bluelining are the same as the ones that were hit by the racist redlining practice in days past. This summer, climate-data analysts at the First Street Foundation released maps showing that 70% more buildings in the United States were vulnerable to flood risk than previously thought; most of the underestimated risk was in low-income neighborhoods.

      Bluelining--a neologism I've not seen before, but it's roughly what one would expect.

For me, a related issue is who can access these different contexts and settings. Digital redlining blocks or slows access for many students (and teachers), and I'd like to learn more about how CL addresses digital redlining.

      For example: how certain neighborhoods are populated and then follow on effects such as income levels, public schooling, transportation, etc.

    2. But the act of redlining areas meant that homeowners who got in trouble during the Depression wouldn’t be eligible for a bailout. “It became a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
