The Black Republican, Black Democrat Show on Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130/FM 103.5, co-hosted by Jamar Nelson and Don Allen will now have the ability to bring our listeners information, people [...]

Somali chaos in St. Cloud; check Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota

by Ann Corcoran (Originally posted on March 26, 2015; but makes much more sense today) If you are angry (about the tension in St. Cloud) and want one entity to blame, it is Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, the primary federal refugee resettlement agency working in St. Cloud!

The Minneapolis Urban League does not represent my interests as a Black Man in Minnesota

Some things I think are very conservative, or very liberal. I think when someone falls into one category for everything, I'm very suspicious. It doesn't make sense to me that you'd have the same solution to every issue. ~Louis C. K. Really, you going to do what with the money?

If you live long enough, you see history repeat itself.

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 [...]
