Atlanta has long liked its titles. The Hollywood of the South. Home to the world’s busiest airport. But the city has another title that it might not be so proud of.

This past week, Bloomberg dubbed Atlanta the most unequal city in the country. The ranking isn’t anything new. The city gets recognition for its income inequality nearly every year.
