  20. Understanding the assault on Black interestsRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Apr 29 | Insight News

    Like others in my professional and community circles, I am astounded and incensed by the incredulous yet incessant attack on Black people by the Minneapolis daily newspaper and by Republican legislators who, as if operating in tandem, act as if they have a duty to dismantle Black community institutions, derail Black community interests, and destroy those who serve Black institutions and interests. What I am reading in the Star Tribune and hearing from some legislators reminds me of Jim Crow supremacy: a cultural environment sustained by legislation and a tainted press that sought to remind the world that Black lives don't matter. 2 comments
