Minneapolis, Minn. - Community members who cleverly disguise themselves as activists have been spreading a vile lie throughout the community that “a deal” was cut and the black community was successful in receiving over $35 million from the 2016 state legislature. As of this past Sunday on a local public radio station where the Minneapolis Urban League’s president Steve Belton was being interviewed, Belton made it very clear; the community did not receive $35 million – the lion’s share of the amount was supposedly distributed throughout the state of Minnesota to many cultures and missions. During the interview, the MUL’s Belton corrected the host of the show who seemed not to have his information correct. “The community (Black folks) did not get $35 million; the $35 million was distributed across the state. The north Minneapolis agency EMERGE and its leadership was asked to take the lead on the $4.2 million that was allocated,” said Belton.
