Domestic race relations took center stage in news coverage this weekend, following violence surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. With Congress on a late-summer break, and with a lull in the rhetoric between the leaders of the U.S. and North Korea, the bond market seems to be taking a breath.
