Examiner Special Report: Greenlining Institute's intimidation of banks in the name of 'social justice' 

For nearly two decades, radical left-wing activists with the Greenlining Institute have used cries of racism to intimidate banks and other financial institutions to make billions of dollars of loans and mortgages based on the ethnic characteristics of neighborhoods instead of the credit-worthiness of the borrowers.

Below is a handy collection of links to all of the articles published for each of the five days of the series:
