There are significant challenges in the Twin Cities - local politicans and community leaders have "pandered out" and our youth from 15-25 have dismissed any notion of leadership, responsibility, or hope.  Our phone lines will be open at (347) 426-3904 for your comments. 

1. On August 26, 2020 in downtown Minneapolis (1800) a young Black boy put a loaded weapon in his mouth and blew the back of his head and upper spine out; he’s dead. Earlier in the day he shot a man in his face (1412), then allegedly killed his girlfriend. (I saw the whole video of the death and I’m sick.)

2. Rhetoric: A few agitators on the scene said, “...the police shot him!” The people, mostly youth (15-25, from the video and sampling by IBNN NEWS) didn’t waste anytime tearing up downtown Minneapolis, overrunning Target, then throwing items at the police (I still don’t understand why Target is a ); police used tear gas and the Guard has been call in (unconfirmed, source is top).

3. If you looked in the eyes of the kids, they wanted answers, nobody is talking to them, there is no discernment - they’re not taught what that means. It’s full-blast chaos over speculation about what happened - at best.

4. In less than two-weeks, educators across the country will have multiple connections to students that have been in protests, tired, unsure, curious, angry, battle worn, and in some cases have identified their enemies and the systems; they are already ignighted, inflamed, and wondering. (Foreshadowing)

5. The mission framework is set; everything - I mean everything is on the line.

This isn’t about the deaths of Floyd, Blake, Clark, and many more, it’s about the perpetual wheel of nothingness for Black Americans - can we fix it?
