Seattle has decided to force landlords to accept the first prospective tenant that walks through the door. Why? Because you may be a racist and not even know it; your unconscious biases could control your rental decisions. Seattle is not content with stopping you from listening to the devil on your shoulder. The city also wants to guarantee that the shoulder devil isn’t mounting a covert op. So Seattle will simply remove your ability to decide who you rent your own property to. As long as the first person to apply meets minimum credit standards, a landlord will have to rent to him.
