Watch the video below very carefully. It paints a picture of benign neglect by the Minnesota’s DFL political plantation for Minnesota’s Native America’s being denied, obstructed and block out for opportunities of economic development. Doesn’t this sound familiar “brothers and sisters?” The revolution needs to start today. Governor Mark Dayton and his half-wit staff should be ashamed.

Minneapolis, MN (IBNN News Video/October 22, 2011)…On Saturday, October 22, 2011 in south Minneapolis a “real” unadulterated discussion was held about the many reasons affirmative action, economic development and state funded projects miss the minority-ethnic contracting community. Springboard Economic Development Corporation and executive director Lennie Chism sponsored the event.
Also in attendance was state representative Joe Mullery (DFL) District: 58A, who at one point was confronted by political activist Alan Maki, (see video). Of course no state representative Bobby Joe Champion (58B) or the newly elected senator Jeff Hayden. (Business as usual for those two.)
This discussion was about Governor Mark Dayton’s continuance of sidestepping important issues concerning the state agencies he governs. Dayton was to send a representative, but at the time of this conversation she had not shown up, (Typical DFL plantation politics).
It seems the Native Minnesotans are having a hell of a time securing jobs regardless of them being over two-third’s of the population in their area in the Bemidji and Leach Lake area.
What will Governor Dayton have to say about this at his October 25th, $100 per person “Jobs Summit?” Again, this is typical of Minnesota’s DFL political plantation.
2014 can’t come soon enough.
