Nissan car loans: … blacks in 33 states pay more than whites, says the Times. (I’m guessing these are states with significant African-American populations — larger than, say, California’s almost 6 percent, according to a Google-cached L.A. Times article from May in the mix.) Now, I drive a Nissan (a used ’98 Sentra, also black). I’m not financing it through the Nissan Motor loan unit that’s under scrutiny in the study mentioned in the article, thank goodness. But I’m not comfortable about the breakdown of purchasing data I can see in the study. (via a particularly irritating MeFi thread)
