This is not Edina. We can see it, and it is here. (photo: Falconhive.com) If it were not for escaping the matrix, I would not be able to share this with you. Poverty in all forms is a curse on society. In Minneapolis and St. Paul, the opportunity reoccurs to put a drastic end to mass poverty; but this would mean stopping a flow of dollars, sex [...]
Minneapolis Foundation and Minnesota Black Chamber of Commerce must come clean on 10-years and $300,000.00
It hasn’t happened in 20 years – how will it happen now? Mainstream “chambers” in Minnesota (a few of them), make decisions that involve millions of dollars. The small businesses in north Minneapolis get a “drop in the bucket” and citizens cannot know who is behind this plantation mentality of a plan being laid out that remains aloof [...]
Target Stores, Minneapolis Foundation: It’s been 10 Years, where is the $300,000.00 for North Minneapolis?
I've been getting the run-a-round for almost a year with no answers. It makes me feel like the pivot-man in a circle jerk."

"The Digital Divide will never be closed in Minneapolis until competent people do the work." Editors Note: The Digital Inclusion Fund is much like a "Save the Unicorns" fund.

(photo: Wirelessweek.com, edited by IBNN) The revolving account managed by the Minneapolis Foundation to bridge the so-called digital divide—a Digital Inclusion Fund (DIF) financed with a “minimum” of five percent of the network’s profits did little to nothing to close the digital [...]
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 [...]
National Groups collaborate to make GED testing computer-based – Digital Divide in Minneapolis has a WIDE GAP after millions in funding
Moving to a “computer based” GED test for youth and adults in the Twin Cities might pose some serious challenges. What I attest are the failures of the Digital Inclusion Fund grants and Broadband Technology Opportunity Programs in building capacity through Internet Training, some poor and disenfranchised community members will have a much [...]
The one-year anniversary of the tornado that hit north Minneapolis is fast approaching (see countdown clock to the right of this page). F.E.M.A. bypassed funding for residents (victims) of Mother Natures wrath in favor of direct funding to city coffers. Most north Minneapolis residents didn’t qualify for SBA loans. What did Congressman Ellison [...]
“If the organizers of the tornado relief would provide a list of people who received money from the organizers, the city of Minneapolis and its residents would see why not much really got done.” I other words, “Jim Crow rules Step-n-Fetch-it.” By Donald W.R. Allen, II – Editor in Chief/The Independent Business News [...]
"It would be great to see all the individual invoice for the folks that made a good living off the "victim-hood" of the north Minneapolis recovery money. It's also nice that IBNN knows the location of the "clearing house." POST IN PROGRESS - THIS WILL BE A HOT ONE!
