How the flying bologna sandwiches is the part in the parenthesis legal or enforceable? So long as it isn't, it shouldn't be relevant.

The part in parenthesis is not legal or enforceable now, but it was once common, even in the northern parts of the country not usually associated with Jim Crow.

The patterns created by these rules are part of the reason cities are still segregated.

Although the issue here seems to be biased urban bureaucrats enforcing regulations unevenly, rather than greedy developers.
