    Minneapolis has been like this for over a hundred years.

    Add a recent migrant invasion and, well, in the famous words of Red Green "There's yer problem lady".



    Corruption, bigotry, social movements, urban renewal

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minneapolis

    Known initially as a kindly physician, Doc Ames led the city into corruption during four terms as mayor just before 1900.[35] The gangster Kid Cann was famous for bribery and intimidation during the 1930s and 1940s.[36] The city made dramatic changes to rectify discrimination as early as 1886 when Martha Ripley founded Maternity Hospital for both married and unmarried mothers.[37]

    Different forms of bigotry played roles during the first half of the 20th century. In 1910, a Minneapolis developer started writing restrictive covenants based on race and ethnicity into his deeds. Copied by other developers, the practice prevented minorities from owning or leasing such properties. Though such language was prohibited by state law in 1953 and by the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968, restrictive covenants against minorities remained in many Minneapolis deeds as recently as 2017.[38] The Ku Klux Klan succeeded by entering family life, but effectively was a force in the city only from 1921 until 1923.[39] After Minnesota passed a eugenics law in 1925, the proprietors of Eitel Hospital sterilized about one thousand people at the Faribault State Hospital.[40]

    From the end of World War I until 1950, Minneapolis was a "particularly virulent" site of anti-semitism. A hate group known as the Silver Legion of America recruited members in the city and held meetings around 1936 to 1938.[41] Answering bigotry against Jewish doctors, Mount Sinai Hospital opened in 1948 as the first hospital in the community to accept members of minority races and religions on its medical staff.[42][41]

    When the country's fortunes turned during the Great Depression, the violent Teamsters Strike of 1934 resulted in laws acknowledging workers' rights.[43] A lifelong civil rights activist and union supporter, mayor Hubert Humphrey helped the city establish fair employment practices and a human relations council that interceded on behalf of minorities by 1946.[44] In the 1950s, about 1.6% of the population of Minneapolis was nonwhite.[45] Minneapolis contended with white supremacy, participated in desegregation and the civil rights movement, and in 1968 was the birthplace of the American Indian Movement.[46]

    During the 1950s and 1960s, as part of urban renewal, the city razed about 200 buildings across 25 city blocks (roughly 40% of downtown), destroying the Gateway District and many buildings with notable architecture, including the Metropolitan Building. Efforts to save the building failed but are credited with sparking interest in historic preservation in the state.[47]

    In 2020, a number of riots and protests broke out in the city following the death of George Floyd on May 25.[48]

    Team Biden on the issue.
    We’re not sure if they’re plants to instigate damage and violence. I’m always skeptical until we get a background on the participan
    Ah so those protesters could be plants to instigate damage and violence but rioters in Minneapolis city were simply just protesters right team biden?

  11. #189
    These protests seem to be very organized.
    Very organized not surprising that team resist is enjoying these. While still believing that Trump is Russia's puppet what bunch of clowns.


    The helicopters will be coming to take Trump to Air Force One where he'll fly off to his exile in Russia.

    The democrats were having trouble convincing people to vote for Biden the way they did with Obama. They couldnt impeach him and couldnt even destroy the economy and now they need to burn down all of these work places so Trump wont be able to bring down unemployment

    They failed with the impeachment so i would believe that as well.
    The American unemployment could heal once this crisis of the virus is over with and things return to normality slowly. Its just one thing to me these protests seem tactical. Normal riots would just riot out of control.

    What about the people working for autozone or target? Are they going to build a new $#@!ing building there so it can be burned down? You opening up a business there?? Tactical? Like a controlled burn so something else can be built? Are they going to sell the real estate for pennies on the dollar??

    Thatís an easy wager while sitting and typing about liberty vigorously on keyboards. People have had enough. Seems like a classic reason for a motherfuckin riot. They may not be aware of liberty, but itís aware of them.

    Edit: wanted to say that I believe that there is a plan happening that all this works into. I donít think itís completely organic.

    Chicago mayor drops 'coded' f-bomb blasting Trump's controversial tweet on George Floyd protests.
    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Friday torched President Trump's controversial tweet about protests after the death of George Floyd, sharing a "coded" message: "It starts with 'f' and ends with 'you.'"

    Lightfoot made the comment at a press briefing Friday, during which she condemned the death of Floyd and the actions by police as seen in a video of his arrest.

    "It's impossible for me as a black woman who has been the target of blatant racism over the course of my life not to take the killing of George Floyd personally. Watching that poor man beg for his life and for the ability to breathe and then watching the life leave him there in the streets I felt angry, I feel sickened and a range of other emotions all at once," Lightfoot said at a moving press briefing Friday.

    "Being black in America shouldn't be a death sentence," she said

    Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is flying a Predator drone, military technology used for surveilling and killing terrorists abroad, over Minneapolis as protesters continue to demonstrate against police brutality, according to publicly available flight data. The drone flown over Minneapolis is an unarmed version of the aircraft.

    The drone was first spotted on a flight tracking tool by members of the ADB-S Exchange, a community of flight watchers who use open-source flight data to monitor America's skies. Presumably, the drone is surveilling protests there, though CBP did not respond to a request for comment about what the drone is doing there.

    Also this happened.
    A good peaceful protester telling antifa member that he needs to stop defacing statues. It seems most of the rioters were part of Antifa/BLM.

    Maybe they figure that Mayor Beetlejuice ain't fooling around in Chicago.

    I mean, if she's willing to call out SWAT raids on churches...just imagine what she'll do to looters.
