The Independent Business News Network was established in July of 2008. The goal of IBNN is to provide a different view of the local, national and global news and events that happen in the Black communities around the world. IBNN's expectations are to provide a level of coverage and investigative reporting not seen on local mainstream media, while covering Politics, Education, Money, Business, and Community events. IBNN is an affiliate of Black Politics in Minneapolis, Radical Black USA and other African American news sources. Comments, concerns and questions can be emailed to ibnnnews@gmail.com

Is radio station KMOJ-FM promoting DFL politics on the air?

Is radio station KMOJ-FM promoting DFL politics on the air?

The simple answer is yes. In a meeting over the weekend with the “Minnesota Institute of Research and Disparities of Black Minnesotans” it was very difficult for the group to pinpoint the CCD/KMOJ-FM board of directors.

Minneapolis mayor and police chief to perform publicity stunt on Tuesday

Minneapolis mayor and police chief to perform publicity stunt on Tuesday

The city of Minneapolis is prime to be put under Marshall Law. With the recent shootings, stabbings and beatings all across the the metro area, it seems we have a challenge. Question: Will the mayor show up? Clearly now you can see what the challenge is...can't you? The mayor and chief plan to talk-the-talk, the walk sucks. IBNN News [...]

Velma Korbel must go! Resignation must be submitted Immediately

Velma Korbel must go! Resignation must be submitted Immediately

IBNN NEWS Editor's note: Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights director Velma Korbel flat-out-lied about the city's Veterans Preference. Is this the type of person who should represent contract compliance, investigation and civil rights for the people of Minneapolis? Will Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges consider "dodging" this one? See the video, [...]
