Is it ok to put “asians only” in my rental ad? Is it a super sensitive time? I prefer to live with Asians only tho.

I usually just post on Asian communities.

No but maybe put in your rental ad that YOU are asian to maybe get a higher chance of Asians living with you? And you can also state asian people behaviors/preferences such as must be comfortable with kimchi and leave shoes at the door to further weed out people who you’ll clash with.

I think this is a great idea 💡 vs. blatantly race-targeting Could also mention the languages you speak if relevant

A simple google will show that this is illegal and considered housing discrimination.

Are you referring to the Fair Housing Act? Pretty sure that only applies to landlords/owners, not someone seeking a roommate. Am I wrong?

Not sure where this falls legally since you’re not a business, but facially discriminatory and wrong. There’s better ways to find a match than beelining a race, and people are their own individual. Definitely know Asians which would be awful roommates.

I think legally you are allowed if it is just for your roommate as it is within the rights of oneself to choose who to share the residential unit with. But as a matter of good judgment, would not recommend ads with racially exclusive conditions.

What has the would gotten into 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️. It’s stupid that we have to think twice about things we want. Perhaps post it in your language or Asian forums to avoid issues. Or else just screen it away

Why is that your preference? Curious

There are Asian community websites for each country or ethnic group I think. I don’t think there are any websites based purely on Asian race for housing purpose.

There is one for Indians only to find housemates, my coworker used it when she first moved for the job

Safest way is to post in your own language
