Recent events – be it the historic COVID-19 pandemic that is disproportionately harming Minnesota’s African American and Hispanic populations, or the devastating killing of George Floyd in our own Minneapolis – have only further highlighted the severe racial and socioeconomic inequities that we already knew existed for children and families of color. How do I know this? I work with racially diverse, low-income Native American and communities of color every day. In 1974, Southside Family Nurturing Center (Southside) was founded in the Phillips community of south Minneapolis. The private, not-for-profit agency’s founders had...
    Liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore expressed concerns over Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s outreach to Black voters in Michigan on Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends.” Moore said, “I get calls every day from people in Michigan, ‘I can’t get a yard sign. I can’t get a yard sign’ Yesterday, a couple of friends of mine, we got together some art, we are just going to start printing our own yard signs for Biden. If we have to save the Democrats from themselves, that’s what we’ll do.” He added, “This is a very good question to ask the Biden campaign because Hillary couldn’t get the yard signs.

    Jack Shuler September 19, 2020 2:00PM (UTC) In the Beforetimes, I travelled from where I live in Ohio to Vancouver, British Columbia, to report on how some Canadians were addressing the overdose crisis through effective community-centered harm reduction programs. In the city's Downtown East Side neighborhood I visited peer-led overdose-prevention sites with ready-access to naloxone and oxygen and trained assistants on site.

The exchange began when Klacik was asked about President Trump's admission to veteran journalist Bob Woodward of wanting to "downplay" the severity of the coronavirus early on and was asked by Sara Haines if the downplaying of the disease "cost lives."

    I recently spoke with business leaders in Louisville, Kentucky, who detailed how they are grappling with the death of Breonna Taylor and the division in the community. They were all asking how they could be a part of the healing. It was a tough conversation with no easy answers. As one person put in succinctly: “This is a long road we are on.” Yes, it sure is. I fear I’ve been looking for a shortcut: the easy checklist of things the white business community must do. This may seem obvious, but what I’ve learned is that there is, in fact, no list. If we’d all been doing this right, we wouldn’t be where we are. If we want real change,...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Dozens of Chicago Police officers are about to undergo training in new community policing strategies, as part of an expansion of a program city officials have said led to fewer 911 calls in the district where it started. Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said 47 officers are beginning training to become “district coordinating officers” (DCOs) in the department’s Neighborhood Policing Initiative, which is designed to help CPD work more closely with residents in specific neighborhoods to address public safety issues. Each DCO is expected to hand out their business card, including their cell phone number and email, and work one-on-one with people about non-emergency neighborhood issues, such as speeding cars and noise complaints.

    The city of Rochester shocked the national news media when seven Rochester Police Department (RPD) leaders, including Chief of Police La’Ron Singletary, resigned on Tuesday. Though some nationally have chalked up the mass resignations as a win for the left-wing activists protesting the Daniel Prude case, local reporting and reactions from officers and residents on the ground indicate a loss in confidence in Democrat Mayor Lovely Warren, who thoroughly blamed the alleged mishandling of the Daniel Prude case on Mr. Singletary. “I have addressed with the police chief how deeply, and personally, and professionally disappointed I am in him for failing to fully and accurately inform me  about what occurred with Mr. Prude,” Warren said during a presser on September 3....

In a video posted to Twitter, Ice Cube lamented that the DNC offered nothing to the American black community beyond the same old talking-points. “Over the last four days, the Democratic national party held a convention. A lot of people getting up there and talking and everybody really eating it up. Throwing their hands in the air like they just don’t care,” he began. “What I didn’t hear is, what’s in...

    A serial killer who murdered four people in Seattle in the late 1960s and early 1970s almost got away with it, a new book has claimed, owing to a grave error by detectives. Gary Gene Grant was 19 when he was charged, in May 1971, with the murder of four people. A mentally-ill man, John Chance, confessed to the killings. Police, however, pieced together witness sightings of Grant near the scenes of the murders and forensic evidence tying him to the crimes and concluded that Chance did not do it.

He's simply trying to make you laugh while sharing a glimpse into a Muslim American family living in New Jersey. In fact, as I discussed with the 2020 double Emmy Award nominee (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series) on "Salon Talks," his show, by design, often makes references to Islam and the customs of American Muslims without explaining it in detail. Ramy, who won a Golden Globe in 2019 for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for Television, noted that's why we have this thing called Google. The...

    Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, is defying state orders that his church remain shuttered during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — and the move is sparking intense discussion and debate. The preacher spoke about his decision in a recent episode of the "Edifi With Billy Hallowell" podcast, explaining that Grace Community Church initially complied with California's restrictions before changing course in recent weeks.

"So, when they came up with this mandate it seemed to be so rare and so unusual that we were listening." Upon hearing...

    Last month, the world’s biggest tech show announced that CES would go online-only in 2021 instead of expecting companies and journalists to brave Las Vegas in January. But the Game Developers Conference (GDC) just announced it isn’t following suit: it’ll hold a “hybrid event taking place physically in San Francisco” that also includes a “robust virtual offering.” While it’s not yet clear how robust the virtual portion will be, GDC 2021 does have one thing going for it right away: it’ll be held July 19th–21st of next year, instead of the typical March timeframe. Perhaps we’ll have a vaccine by then or at least be more confident about gigantic business and social gatherings. Or perhaps it’ll simply be a...

The plan directly affects customers here in Minnesota, and given Xcel’s reputation in the industry, will also set the tone for how...

(Nina Robinson/The New York Times) “Look at this,” she said, surrounded by four of her young grandchildren on the short stoop of her home. “They ride as fast as they can right down through here with no regard for the children.” It is in such moments — when she is reminded of the many dangers in her community, from speeding cars to gunshots — that Williams, 50, would welcome the presence of police.

    In my nearly fifty years as a resident of Montbello, I've seen a lot of change in Denver Public Schools. As a parent, retired DPS teacher and community member, I'm accustomed to fighting to get what our kids deserve.
