Jones v. Mayer
by the Supreme Court of the United States
Jones v. Alfred H. Mayer Co., 392 U.S. 409 (1968), is a United States Supreme Court case which held that Congress could regulate the sale of private property in order to prevent racial discrimination: "42 U.S.C. § 1982 bars all racial discrimination, private as well as public, in the sale or rental of property, and that the statute, thus construed, is a valid exercise of the power of Congress to enforce the Thirteenth Amendment." — Excerpted from Jones v.
