Minneapolis Declares Racism a Public Health Emergency

Minneapolis Declares Racism a Public Health Emergency

We are literally in the middle of a global pandemic, but sure, let’s make racism our top health emergency

The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to declare racism a public health emergency and vowed“to allocate funding and other resources to “name, reverse, and repair the harm done” to people of color in the city.”

More from the Star Tribune:

The resolution was unanimously approved nearly two months after George Floyd, a Black man, was killed by Minneapolis police while in custody in south Minneapolis. Days after his death, Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins called on the council to define racism as a public-health crisis.

During a committee meeting last week, Jenkins said Floyd’s killing, Black people’s vulnerability to coronavirus and racial gaps in homeownership are issues that have “been deeply agreed upon that at the core is racism.”

“How do we begin to address and end racism?” Jenkins asked. “I think the first step in that process is through naming that as an issue.”

The resolution, sponsored by Jenkins and Council Member Phillipe Cunningham, listed multiple ways the city would work to reduce the impact of racism on its residents.

Its racial advisory committee would review the city charter and other policies. It would “establish a long-term sustainable source” of funding to increase developmental programming for youth of color. It would also put together an annual report detailing the health of residents of color.

I mean, we are literally in the middle of a global pandemic, but sure, let’s make racism our top health emergency.

Let enough Democrats crowd together in one spot and they all catch empty brain virus.

    The Communist Democrat Party is doing all of this to try and keep their enslaved minority voters on the Democrat Party Plantation.

    It is having the 100% opposite result.

    How much crazier can the Communist Democrat Party Go?

    Well the crazier they go the more minorities flee their Democratic party Plantation!

Seems pretty racist to say only whites are racist

    Only a racist would say that

    Today, the most overt racists in the country are black. We need to have a mandatory reeducation program to stamp out black racism and to show them how they are being used by Democrats.

    Each day a class is convened, a recovering black racist should wash their instructors feet, to show their humility and appreciation.

Because feeding the alligator is always a great way to appease it.

That’s the way they roll in Minnesota, with Ilhan “bruthaphuka” as their patron saint.

The comments at the Star Tribune are seething, at a quick glance.

Public health measures to stem racism will be visits to camps run by DiAngelo and Kendi.

Booker T warned of the race hustlers. They sell a poisonous tonic that tastes good to some, and they as they cheer the damage and provide failed solutions.

In other countries at other times people who refused to bow the knee to totalitarians were called “hoarders and wreckers”, “counter-revolutionaries”, “Jewish dogs”, “capitalist roaders”, “polluters of Aryan racial purity”, “imperialists”, “enemies of the people”, “Zionists”, “colonialists”.

At the present time those who resist Communism are called “racists”. Welcome to the American version of the Cultural Revolution.

    I don’t need their culture , I’ve got enough yoghurt.

    This one’s gonna be a LOT different… They forgot to disarm us first.

      And Billy Boy set it in motion in the wrong direction in ’94. The black rifle club used to be a lonely place. Now it is about every third name in the phone book.

      So Portland is supposed to have a large BLM march tomorrow. I am going to go out on a limb and predict it is 99% white. And they will show up mostly because they are bored and everything else is closed.

        Don’t forget, they were brought up to expect to “change the world.”

        That’s what they think they are doing.

        However, I see no imagination there. Nothing new under the sun.

    This started about 2004 and I blame Hillary for giving into it in the 2006 Democratic primaries when she gave into Obama’s attack then.

We assume that ex-cons will vote Democrat for the same reasons we assume that dead people will vote Democrat.

BLM is a terrorist organization and should be dealt with accordingly.

I can’t roll my eyes far enough back into my head for this one.

Did ANY of these people live during the Jim Crow era?

Was Floyd’s death caused by the restraint, or multiple factors including fentanyl consumption and Wuhan virus+ which may have reduced his viability? Was it a Covid-19 death and was he a spreader? Is there any evidence that diversity was a motive to restrain him in the second half of the encounter? Was the officer aware of Floyd’s conditions before calling for medical aid? Who approved the law enforcement methods and procedures? Ellison?

Some, select, Black Lives Matter is a Pro-Choice sect.

Diversity (i.e. denial of individual dignity, denial of individual conscience, affirmative discrimination, color quotas, color blocs) dogma is a class-based taxonomic philosophy not limited to racism, sexism.

I’m getting really sick of this nonsense.

    Decades ago, MPLS was a beautiful city, especially the downtown area. Now, not so much. It’s circling the drain.

      As were so many American cities. Why? Let’s come right out and describe the elephant in the room; loet’s be impolite. Let’s BE “racist”.

      They were clean, neat, civilized, and great places to live because of segregation, either de facto or de jure.

      Laws were still enforced.

      Society in general, regardless of heritiage, was well-mannered.

      Even the down-at-the-heels dressed as well as they could; no one walked about in undershirts – excuse me, “tank tops”. Young women did not spend the equivalent of today’s $300 to wear pre-frayed-and-torn blue-jeans.

      Yes. In many ways, I DO long for the olden days.

Time to bulldoze Minneapolis politicians since they are a

Keep digging. Keep conceding power to lowbrow nitwits with ____ – Studies degrees and zero track record of any meaningful accomplishments in life. Keep convincing yourselves that being the middle school punching bag cowering before the weak loud school yard bully is a sign of virtue. Sane society is laughing at you and will not bail you out of the shit show you are willingly allowing your lives to become.

Until you experience one of these people one-one-one, you really don’t know how self-absorbed and unhinged and manipulative they are.

Tragic is one thing: how sad and how narcissistic and weird the personalities they’ve allowed themselves to be cultivated into. Their self-mutilation (tattoos piercings, etc.) is their way of ensuring they have no path of return to sanity: they are Kamakazi pilots with only enough gas for a one-way trip. Either they destroy us or they die for their commie emperors. (I really don’t think they’ve explored the “they die” thing enough, but we do need to teach them – and quick.)

But the damage to their minds is something you must experience first-hand. You’ll then realize the specter of hillary clinton as president pales compared to who has their hand up biden’s ass and is controlling him.

It’s all or nothing in November.

    They are narcissists, people who will say and do anything to remain in control, whether within their families, friendships, workplaces, or the larger society.

    Best thing to do with them is avoid and ignore and not give them a second of airtime.

    Every time we post a photograph or a twit or an article or even a comment, we give the narcissist attention.

This is an excellent article. It makes Alinsky accessible to people who can’t imagine his kind of wickedness.

Sounds like they think they’re losing the black vote, and they probably are. After all, they’ve decimated black businesses and neighborhoods and everyone knows it. So they’re trying out a bold new strategy:

“Vote For Us And Get Free Shit”

Race baiting must be hard work to keep so many occupied at it.

It is just an attempt to distract people from the utter incompetence and failure of the Dems. See the process. The content is to distract.

This same pattern of behavior was what one saw in the Nazi take over of Germany and in Austria. Same with the French Revolution were they chopped the heads off all royalty. Same with Soviet Russia. And so on…

This is an insurrection going on, and it is enabled by the government in these cities. Antifa and BLM are the troops brought in to give direction and bring up violence.

Read history of these communist/”socialist” and Fascist revolts. It happens the same basic way. That appeasers of these terrorist organizations work with these groups thinking they are in control, they will soon find they are not. This is building up to a civil war, and the left are counting on the opposition to cower in fear.

The left is so far removed from where they were a decade ago that I do not see how they can come back to more normalcy. They don’t want to even try. Elections during the times in history mentioned above meant very little, other than to confirm power to these radical terrorists, who will grab for more power. That the elections were tampered with, fraud rampant, didn’t matter then. The left in our country has been getting away with it for decades, and few are ever brought to justice for their crimes, so it increases.

All revolutions need a focus for their hate, and it is always hate driven, so the left have made it white people calling it all aspects of our lives being part of “white supremacy”. Funny how the white leftists seem to think they won’t be part of the purge once the real killing starts. They will be wrong, but by that point no one would be winners.

Actually, there is no global pandemic, either.

I’m so glad they solved their Covid problem and are focusing their resources on real problems. (sarcasm).

The public health emergency in Minneapolis is stupidity.

Boom!! Federal funding for their racist ideology.
Trump withholds funding for this and bamm!! “Trump wants people to die!!” ” Orange man bad!!”

Cornell is accusing people of racism because of their own guilt.
