SORT BY Relevancy
Only a handful of Minneapolis NAACP members received notice about an upcoming election scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7. This election was to elect a new president and executive board. Join the team of Ronald A. Edwards and Don Allen as we examine what has happened to the Minneapolis NAACP.
The Minneapolis branch of the NAACP is celebrating a new beginning with the election of several new officers who will set forth to build capacity and make a difference for the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP.
On Friday, December 13, by an overwhelming margin, the pastor of New Salem Missionary Baptist church, Rev. Jerry McAfee was elected as president of the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP with a solid vote of the majority of members in attendance.
Also elected to the executive committee, as Vice President was former Minneapolis policewoman Ms. Lisa Clemons. IBNN’s Don Allen was elected as second Vice President with three other candidates vying for the spot. Allen tells us in a candid interview, “Nobody thought I was going to win. I care about black people in Minnesota. The current road we are on will kill us. The lack of economic development, poor housing, educational challenges and people speaking for people of color who don’t represent ‘people of color’ is over during my watch. Its time to change the dynamics and I’m ready to take action in Minnesota on behalf of the Minneapolis NAACP. It will no longer be about a political party and supporting hen-pecked issues, it will be about making a good life for people of color in Minneapolis.”
Business owner and mega producer Tonia Johnson was elected as treasurer of the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP. The Minneapolis branch also elected a secretary and assistant secretary on Friday night.
The phone lines will be open, it's time to talk.
Doug Mann, perennial Minneapolis School Board candidate and candidate for Minneapolis mayor last fall and a life-long member of the Minneapolis NAACP started a pro se action last summer to compel a city-wide referendum on the new Viking stadium finance package:
Mann said he will file his petition for a writ of mandamus that seeks a public referendum on use of city sales taxes to help finance the edifice, as authorized by the Legislature.
He wants the court to order that the city follow a provision of its charter that requires voter approval when more than $10 million in city funds are spent on an athletic facility. The city is expected to note that the legislation overrides that charter provision.
The city will finance its portion of the stadium using a suite of sales taxes – a citywide sales tax, downtown restaurant and liquor taxes and a hotel tax. Those taxes currently pay for the city’s convention center, but money will be freed up when debt on that facility is paid in 2020.The total city subsidy is $309 million, or $678 million when accounting for interest over the life of the deal.
Well, the city did “note” the override, and the Hennepin County District ruled that both Mann and the city were right. It did violate the charter, but the state overrode the charter with the stadium legislation. That decision is now on appeal.
Phone lines will be open to ask the question: Will the Minneapolis membership of the NAACP stand behind Mr. Doug Mann, or wait for a payoff from the MSFA?
Join the team of Ronald A. Edwards (Black Focus) and Don Allen (OurBlackNews.com) as they bring you the best in news and information in Minnesota. On this weeks show, there will be a major annoucement that you MUST NOT MISS!
As always, phone lines will be open.

Today we will be blessed by God and the Honorable Min. Louis Farrakhan on the Willie Lynch letter.
The Nation of Islam under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the catalyst for the growth and development of Islam in America. Founded in 1930 by Master Fard Muhammad and led to prominence from 1934 to 1975 by the Honorable Eiljah Munammad, the Nation of Islam continues to positively impact the quality of life in America.
Minister Louis Farrakhan, born on May 11, 1933 in Bronx, N.Y., was reared in a highly disciplined and spiritual household in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Raised by his mother, a native of St. Kitts, Louis and his brother Alvan learned early the value of work, responsibility and intellectual development. Having a strong sensitivity to the plight of Black people, his mother engaged her sons in conversations about the struggle for freedom, justice and equality. She also exposed them to progressive material such as the Crisis magazine, published by the NAACP.
Popularly known as “The Charmer,” he achieved fame in Boston as a vocalist, calypso singer, dancer and violinist. In February 1955, while visiting Chicago for a musical engagement, he was invited to attend the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day convention.

There is a white male, maybe more than one abducting little black girls in Minneapolis. Co-host Ronald A. Edwards called the Minneapolis Public Schools and asked why an “AMBER ALERT” or “ROTO-CALL” was not done. School officials said it did not meet the threshold. The Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools have failed children of color one to many times. Join us as we talk about education, some history about Minnesota and current events.

Two NYPD police officers shot & killed in revenge for Ferguson, Garner grand jury verdicts; NYC cop killer spoke Arabic, had Muslim Brotherhood slogan posted on his Facebook page; Al Sharpton & NAACP flee accountability for NYC cop slayings - pathetically; NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio also has blood on his hands; The culpability for inciting the murder of two cops reaches to the highest levels of media and government; and Which side of the aisle is more racist than the other? It’s not even close.
