’Grandfathering’ banned from Massachusetts court due to racist origins

’Grandfathering’ banned from Massachusetts court due to racist origins

A Massachusetts appeals court has said that the term ’grandfathering’ will no longer be used in its decisions, citing its racist origins in post-Civil War laws. ’Grandfathering’ is used to explain why new zoning rules do not apply to existing buildings. The court said the phrase ’grandfather clause’ comes from 19th-century laws that created voting barriers for African-Americans.
