The major issue that was ignored in the presidential debate


Despite the location of last night's presidential debate being the center of years of police brutality protests, the topics of race or policing were not discussed.

Ferguson, Missouri, the site of roiling weeks-long protests over police brutality during the back-half of 2014, is about a 20-minute drive from Washington University St. Louis, the site of last night's second presidential debate.

Protests in Ferguson sparked years of protests against police brutality around the country and have generated near-constant conversation about racism in the United States. And yet, in last night's debate, the candidates were not explicitly asked a single question about race or policing.
