Last week’s MetroTrends bloggers delivered provocative commentary on three hot topics for metropolitan America:

  • Microsoft’s new “avoid the ghetto” app – John Roman maps crime patterns in the District of Columbia.
  • Claims that residential segregation is behind us – Rolf Pendall argues that racial exclusion and isolation can’t be consigned to the history books yet.
  • Barriers to equal opportunity for African Americans and Latinos – Margery Turner ranks the nation’s 100 biggest metros on their racial opportunity gaps.
