Open letter to the City of Edina, Minnesota: Don’t be a part of Black Chaos

Critical thinking and white guilt don’t mix – but someone wants them to. It’s evident in Minnesota for over 10-generations, neither create wealth nor prosperity for Black Minnesotans…what’s next? It’s self-evident that Black, Asian, and Middle Eastern men and women ought to take pride in their identities and fight for their group [...]

Minnesota Murder: Black people are killed daily by “Like Enforcement”

Minnesota Murder: Black people are killed daily by “Like Enforcement”

It’s more powerful than a gang shooting; more violent that black-on-black crime. No police involved shooting can match the power of opportunity violence in Minnesota Nice and the obstructions and denial of economic, educational and life success.

With the hiring of Sharon Pierce, President of Minneapolis Community and Technical, there is a need for an immediate change in the politics which reject the success of the black body. President Pierce must reconfigure the [...]

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 [...]

State lawmakers block the ability of Black Minnesotans to have a voice in Out of Home placement of Black Children

Black Fathers, please come back. Our children need us, and our voices. When black children are in a system designed to marginalize, obstruct and deny the black family unit – we need only to look at a group of Minnesota lawmakers who have sent a solid message by looking the other way.

More targeting of black residents by Minneapolis City Council

The Minneapolis City Council is attacking baseball hats, doo-rags, Bowler hats and anything covering your head. Murder, crime, education and jobs sit on the back burner. In our opinion, this is just the start of cleaning up downtown Minneapolis in preparation for the Super Bowl and other events related to the 2016 opening of the U.S. Bank Stadium [...]
