Despite its progressive image, Minneapolis is one of the most segregated cities in the United States. That is by design not accident, argues an urban planning scholar.
After a riot broke out in 1967, Minneapolis officials squandered an opportunity to address the structural racism that led to George Floyd's death and a wave of unrest across the country.
That George Floyd died at the hands of four police officers is uncontested, but interpretations of his death and its aftermath differ greatly. The result is two starkly opposed narratives.
Trump's critics have assailed his handling of both coronavirus and the Minneapolis unrest. His election opponent, Joe Biden, though, has yet to show he can be the more effective leader, either.
