Jessica Nickrand, "Minneapolis's White Lie" The Atlantic
Minnesota has the widest poverty gap in the nation.
In the Twin Cities, blacks live below the poverty line at a rate three times higher than whites.
Lack of affordable housing means black residents are concentrated in a few neighborhoods and are much more likely to get subprime housing loans than whites.
Tim Post, "Minnesota is near the bottom in on-time graduation" MPR,
"For the third year in a row, Minnesota lags the rest of the country in on-time graduation for students of color.
"Fewer than 60 percent of the state's black and Hispanic students graduate in four years, according to an MPR News analysis of the most recent federal data on state graduation rates, from the 2012-13 school year. The rate for the state's Native American students is the second worst in the nation at 49 percent."
Taylor Gee, "Something is Rotten in the State of Minnesota" Politico
"The Twin Cities, it turns out, are also home to some of the worst racial disparities in the country. In metrics across the board—household income, unemployment rates, poverty rates and education attainment—the gap between white people and people of color is significantly larger in Minnesota than it is most everywhere else."
Craig Helmstetter, "Racial Disparities in Minnesota: Better, Worse, or the Same?" Minnesota Compass
"While our state ranks among the very best in overall quality of life, we also rank among the very worst in racial and ethnic disparities. Professionals in fields ranging from education and employment to health and housing – as well as grassroots advocates and the affected communities themselves – have been working hard to close gaps."
