Minneapolis and St. Paul mayor’s campaign fables do not end Veterans Homelessness in 2015

Oh...you don't want to give any black agencies state funds to end veterans homelessness. Mmm, 2016, all eyes on you! (photo: Don Allen, Founder-OBN) If you ever needed a real-time example of a worthless campaign commitment, then all you have to do is read the City of Minneapolis website news (January 31, 2014); then in 2016, travel to almost [...]

The Epidemic of Cotton Candy: The slow burn

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will not announce this fatal epidemic of dreams deferred. By Don Allen, Publisher  According to author Malcolm Gladwell, the philosophy of a social epidemic is based on three rules: the Law of the Few, the Stickiness Factor and the Power of Context.

Deconstructing Bill Cosby, Charlie Sheen and the Double Standards of Race

Deconstructing Bill Cosby, Charlie Sheen and the Double Standards of Race

I really look forward to seeing the headline, "Charlie Sheen, the Sexual Death Sentence." I don't guess we will see that anytime soon. (photo: New York Daily News - Fair Use) When we use the lens of deconstruction in any situation, we realize that there is something wrong or incomplete or dishonest or unintended with how it was put together in [...]

National experts on Community Policing right here in Minnesota; Dayton, DFL, Minneapolis officials ignore “gift”

National experts on Community Policing right here in Minnesota; Dayton, DFL, Minneapolis officials ignore “gift”

The black community in the state of Minnesota is torn into many silos. One group seeks empowerment, fame and money; the others seek to address Minnesota’s continued mismanagement of economic assets for the minority-ethnic communities. Sources tell Our Black News and internal audit is underway inside of the Minnesota Department of Administration, [...]

Honoring the life of Jamar Clark…Why?

Honoring the life of Jamar Clark…Why?

The worst part about crowds gathering for a cause is that MOST of them have only heard hearsay from someone that wants them to believe and listen to only X. The crowd doesn't know the facts, some don't care about the facts, and they just want a tag line to follow. If Blacks did some research they will discover that white people are not seeking [...]

Minnesota governor Mark Dayton thinks Black Minnesotans are just plain stupid

This is what the MNDFL, and left leaning state lawmakers see when they think of black Minnesotans. Yes, the work was done to address Minnesota’s challenges within the black community, but of course, Gov. Mark Dayton and state DFLers ignored it. Don’t take my word, read the reports: The Minnesota Black People’s Concerns Report [...]

Another Police shooting; So what…You forgot about Terrence Franklin, you’ll forget about this one too

Another Police shooting; So what…You forgot about Terrence Franklin, you’ll forget about this one too

Honestly, no one cares about the average Black Minnesotan. They don't care when there's a shooting in our neighborhood either. Seems it's more about economics. If your family has money, or you know someone in high places, ONLY then do they care. It also seems, to me, to be a breakdown in the neighborhoods. If we are afraid to report crimes to the [...]

Black Americans should be concerned about money that never made it to Haiti for earthquake recovery

Black Americans should be concerned about money that never made it to Haiti for earthquake recovery

Like the nose on your face, someone needs to be indicted for the mishandling of millions meant to bring Haiti into real-time. Of course, white bankers in the United States didn’t spend one-day in jail for the 2008 crash and trillions lost; but heck it sure must be good to be on top of the food chain.
