The city-name "Coon Rapids" should be banned and changed, it is racist and offensive.

it was not a robbery, it was an undocumented withdrawal.

I read the City of Coon Rapids, named after Coon Creek Rapids into the Mississippi R, is happy with the name. The name was never considered racist or offensive by the original residents, the many raccoons who have been hanging out by the falls for thousands of years. A new raccoon survey is scheduled to coincide with the US census.
But don't expect a change in name. Raccoons still don't grasp the concept of racist and offensive. However, they do
grasp the concept of garbage, in case you've got more.

This is what happens when you offer low income housing. You might as well callit mini North Minneapolis. It will not get any better.

Actually Coon is racist and of course the people who name may not have thought this but it is since some whites call blacks Coon's.

the full name of the city was Coon Creek Rapids. it was named by the fur trappers who trapped the Procyon lotor that lived in the area.
.
and at the time they hunted the little animals, there was a set of rapids on the creek near the mouth of it where it joined the Mississippi river. there is still a set of rapids on the creek a bit north of where it passes by the Al Flynn pond aka The Clayhole(a once popular swimming spot).
.
in fact the city logo is of the furry lil animal.
.
heck, I thought there were no more banks in CR since the First Bank of Coon Rapids is no more.

the junior highs used to have a history on the city. about the fur trappers, and what animals they trapped here.
.
Coon Rapids Blvd is the oldest street in the city. in fact it used to be part of Hwy 10.
.
also there used to be the Dunn hotel at the corner of Egret and Coon Rapids Blvds. where there is a vacant garage building. also used to be a 'gentlemen's club' in what is now a vacant lot next to Don's Motors.
