Abstract Discrimination is an omnipresent force in our society. The
faceless shadow rears its ugly head in a variety of places, and impacts
the lives of countless Americans every day. Tomorrow, for instance,
an African American woman will be turned down for a job because of
her race. The next day, an aging man will be replaced without
warning by a younger employee. Over the years, the legislature and
the judiciary have taken turns wrestling with the complex issues
created as a result of widespread discriminatory practices. During the
1960s and 1970s, Congress attempted to remedy some forms of
discrimination by passing the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and the Equal
Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA).'
