On the campaign trail, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg boasts about the economic transformation of South Bend, Indiana. While he praises projects that are revitalizing the city, some residents in predominantly black neighborhoods feel left behind. They say Buttigieg has failed to tackle South Bend’s economic and racial inequality, Reuters reports. Some residents also say they suffer a lack of job opportunities and face harassment by a predominately white police force. A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll found no measurable support for the mayor among African Americans nationally.
