And if the White Polish DFL Caucus up Nord East wants to interview everyone to put their stamp of approval on slate of candidates, what do you think would be said in the newspapers about them?

"Those racists!"

But we don't say the same thing about the DFL Black Caucus? Why is that?

What do you suppose comprises the bulk of "ongoing and pending transportation disparities that continue to prevail in African American neighborhoods?"

Answer to Q#1: There are already any number of private and public services to link people to jobs. It is not governments responsibility to build assets for private individuals or their families.

Answer to Q#2: Race is not a consideration when handing out public money for investment or community building. That is illegal.

Answer to Q#3: Not touching this one.

Answer to Q#4: Anyone is welcome to apply for any job that is posted and the most experienced and qualified applicant will be chosen. Race will not be considered. That's illegal.

Answer to Q#5: It's called the Bill of Rights and it is applied equally to everyone. That is the law.

1. I would Lower taxes and do my best to build an economic exclusion zone free of many state taxes as well.

2. Everyone benefits from a better economy, that and many African-Americans could now afford to become entrepreneurs, some mentoring may be needed due to years of DFL enslavement

3. Improve roads, payed for by ending all gay agenda and social engineering programs (all of Minneapolis though not favoring any one ethnic over another)

4. May the best applicant win

5. I will enforce the Constitution

6. A better economy is better for EVERYONE, I would shut down slum housing and see to the end of Minneapolis as a sanctuary city for Somali's though that should help as well.

-----With that they would thank me, say hey he had some good points, but oh wait we get government cheese time to use the race card!
