There was a Republican Governor in Florida in 1989. Additionally, if that's your standard for political control then I can just list the LA Riots of 1992. The Governor of California in 1992 was Pete Wilson - a Republican.

What discriminatory loan policies are those?
If you define discrimination as simply making a distinction, it can certainly be positive. Helping out underprivileged or underrepresented minorities after years of negative discrimination. It's one way to combat the problems that racist white majorities have created.
