Is there a Political Scandal in Minneapolis the Star Tribune will not touch?

Is there a Political Scandal in Minneapolis the Star Tribune will not touch?

From elected officials having children out of wedlock to the current question surrounding the martial status of a local Minneapolis primary winner, the Star Tribune and other Twin Cities media have shown their true colors.

Minneapolis: Black Lives have to Matter to Blacks folks first before anyone else will care

Minneapolis: Black Lives have to Matter to Blacks folks first before anyone else will care

It’s all about the sad deferment of Black Lives Matter in north Minneapolis; because they don’t – just ask the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), Minnesota Department of Transportation, Met Council, MNSure and the both the mayor and governor’s office.

Editor's Note: We once again are right in the middle of an election year. Many incumbent candidates in the Twin Cities who represent a large portion of the minority-ethnic and mainstream communities have failed as law makers.
