    Answered . Your landlord is full of it. This is housing discrimination. File a complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) at: http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/

    Most likely, DFEH will not act because they are overwhelmed with issues and understaffed; but at the very least, they can supply you with information and that can put your landlord in her place.
