Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges starts community outreach war with $250K political payoff

Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges starts community outreach war with $250K political payoff

Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges is wrong. It’s an election year and she just played her hand to show all the Minneapolis voters she’s the queen of political payoffs, backroom deals and an advocate for keeping downtown Minneapolis in chaos. #BandAidBetsy By Don Allen, Publisher (Editorial)…Minneapolis’ black community has always been [...]

With so much prosperity in Minnesota, why are boys and babies still being killed?

With so much prosperity in Minnesota, why are boys and babies still being killed?

“I’ve lived in north Minneapolis all my life. I’ve never worked on the new football field; neither have any of my friends…we’re all broke.” ~Robert Johnson, resident of north Minneapolis By Don Allen with data provided by Matt Johnson (The System Scientist) It was one of the biggest announcements after the completion of the U.S. [...]

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. Putting money in the streets does not stop the streets [...]

Minneapolis Initiatives and Community Love is Fake

Minneapolis Initiatives and Community Love is Fake

Of course positioning for money and sex makes it harder (phrasing); the cultural assimilation of stewardship for black folks in the Twin Cities has fallen into the hand of shame, disbelief and murder. By Don Allen, Publisher and founder of the Minnesota Institute of Research and Public Policy for the Disparities of Black Minnesotans [...]

Former Minneapolis Police Officer Lisa Clemons: A Dose of Common Sense

Check a solution at the door...please?

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, [...]

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.

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

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