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 [...]

"I love my people; not just the ones who make it to the 6 and 10." Publisher Don Allen, Our Black News. With over six homicides in Minneapolis’ minority-ethnic community since death of Jamar Clark, you would think someone would be worried about the dangers of oversight.

Give me your tired, your poor: Don’t Block progress because of privilege

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

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 [...]

Twin Cities Black spokespersons hold a Press Conference to confront Black Sweat

Black Sweat...

The new Jim Crow denotes these actions [...]

The GOP Just Tilted So Far Right They Damn Near Fell Off the Map

by Abby Zimet, Guest Columnist - OBN In case you haven't heard, the clowns took over the GOP circus today with a lunatic vengeance, first successfully ousting House Speaker John Boehner, who announced his resignation, and then loudly celebrating his demise at the annual Jesus-loving, fringe-pandering, gay-Islam-abortion-hating revival [...]

Will the Republican Party of Minnesota figure out their messaging while Donald Trump opens all the doors?

Will the Republican Party of Minnesota figure out their messaging while Donald Trump opens all the doors?

With the growing and popularity of 2016 presidential candidate Mr. Donald J. Trump, one might think local GOP state offices would get a clue and get off the status quo bus of rejecting not only their own, but many looking for a firing solution in Minnesota’s conservative field of play. I mean really, how could you let the local mainstream media [...]
