Real estate investors Misty and her husband, James, claim realtor Josie Lin rejected their offer to pay cash for three condominium units she was selling because they are Black. The couple’s lawyer, Civil Rights attorney Justin Moore, has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit on behalf of his clients, claiming that Ms. Lin violated the Fair Housing Act (1968). The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), familial status, and disability.

Ms. Lin vehemently denies the allegations. Her attorney, Ralphaell V. Wilkins, made a statement to Dr. Phil. Read an excerpt of that statement below, then watch the video above to hear how Dr. Phil’s guests respond.

Excerpted Statement From Ralphaell V. Wilkins/The Wilkins Law Firm:

My law firm represents Josie Lin…While the Ra-Amaris have chosen to literally market their version of their interaction with Ms. Lin to every media outlet… I urge caution in giving any credence to the Ra-Amaris’ fictional account. When people move with break-neck speed to get in front of a camera - as the Ra-Amaris have - to accuse another person of racial discrimination, media should approach such claims with extreme carefulness… In Ms. Lin’s case, when the unvarnished story is told, it will be crystal clear that she did not discriminate against the Ra-Amaris based on their race or ethnicity. Ms. Lin is a person of color herself. She is a Chinese immigrant who came to America to work hard… She is cognizant of and devoted to treating all people with respect and dignity, irrespective of race or ethnicity.

Part one of this two-part Dr. Phil, “Bias in Real Estate: Enough is Enough!” airs Thursday. Then, in Friday’s conclusion, “Fighting Back: Real Estate Bias Exposed,” Dr. Phil talks to Professor Emeritus at the University of Kentucky College of Law Robert Schwemm about his role in the 2019 Long Island Newsday short documentary about discriminatory practices in real estate: Testing The Divide.
