That's a fair point when you think about it, I guess it was a matter of stigma.
Funny you should mention that though here people do advertise rooms under asian or indian applicants only.
I'm not sure, but I had the impression that the rules for advertising rooms in your home (that would be part of the renter's own household, so not self-contained bedsits with their own front door) are much more lenient when it comes to anti-discrimination laws than are the rules if you are renting out a self-contained residence.
I don't know how far that goes - I suspect if you are a group of women sharing a house you are allowed to advertise for a woman housemate only, for example. But I don't know if it's allowed for race or religion (or mental health status).
