Thousands of demonstrators are gathering in cities across the U.S. and around the world to protest the killing of George Floyd. Huge crowds have assembled in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago for full-day events.

The coronavirus’ disproportionate impact on black and Latino communities has become a defining part of the pandemic.
The big picture: That's a result of myriad longstanding inequities within the health care system and the American economy.
