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

The narrative of Michael Brown being a “good kid,” or an altar boy who was allegedly on his way to college the following Monday before his killing may not be completely accurate. Of course it’s not accurate.  This was the first misleading news story told the American public by national media outlets, including Twin Cities television [...]

Young Americans: Where are the strong children being developed in Minneapolis? (Updated 2/11/13)

While Blacks are just 12.6% of the nation's population, they're roughly half of people murdered in this country each year. The vast majority of these killings are at the hands of other Blacks. If that doesn't shock you, maybe this will: More Blacks were murdered in the United States in 2009 alone than all the U.S. troops killed in Iraq and [...]

2003: Target Stores leaves $300,000.00 for North Minneapolis…Where is it in 2012?

Small businesses in north Minneapolis are barely making enough money to keep the lights on. Still, local foundations and corporate institutions that say they assist blighted communities make grants to non-profits in a misguided effort to assist small businesses. This shows us that someone doesn’t have the acumen to understand how small [...]
