Hey this is Minnesota. We need government run by Blacks, Muslims, Mexicans, Somali Stink and throw in a couple of slants for good measure. Do we not have any homosexuals who can step up to the plate?

" Somali candidates are organizing to represent a new south Minneapolis ward heavily populated by East African residents."

"Among the candidates is Alondra Cano, a Mexican-American who last year helped organize a City Hall task force to better engage the city’s Latino population and wants to include more of that group in city decisionmaking."

"Belong Yang is one of three candidates vying for the seat of Council Member Don Samuels, who is running for mayor. Yang, who is Hmong, won nearly 40 percent of the vote when he went head-to-head against then-Sen. Linda Higgins for a Hennepin County Board seat in 2012."

"He’ll compete against two African-American candidates who also have some political experience. Attorney Ian Alexander lost his bid last year for Minnesota House seat 59B, while Brett Buckner has served as field director U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s campaign and the DFL’s Fifth Congressional District from 2006 to 2008."

Ok. Let me remove the "Stink" part so it doesn't get deleted.

Rodman also said Kim told him, "I don't want to do war. I don't want to do war."
