RES 21-77 1/14/2021 12:33 PMKat Rohn For I am so pleased to see the Council advancing this important first step in addressing our complicated history. Particularly now as we see the disparate impact of COVID on BIPOC communities, in health, employment, and other facets of life. While the collective action required to shift our narrative is larger than what St Paul alone can address, I am glad that this step substantively and symbolically begins that healing process. +1
RES 21-77 1/14/2021 6:07 AMJRH   That was supposed to say "generational wealth" but my phone autocorrected. Sorry!
RES 21-77 1/14/2021 6:06 AMJRH Against One ill turn does not deserve another. It may be the case that communities that have higher degrees of people of color need help establishing "gene rational wealth", but forcing people to "help" through government action is not the solution. The solution is cultural: encouraging a culture of Godliness, trust, personal responsibility, and honor for one's fellow human beings. So, whatever you decide to do, please remember that if you harm one group in order to help another, you are perpetuating the violence and distrust we so desperately need to put away as fellow citizens.
RES 21-77 1/13/2021 6:48 PMJCM   I find it interesting that not many African Americans in St Paul know of this, myself included. However, I'm not at all surprised by the comments against it, I hope the council is ready!
RES 21-77 1/13/2021 6:36 PMR Dubuc   I am Hispanic, and I believe that the resolution is racist in this form.By excluding other people of color.Black people are not the only ones held back by systematic rasism.Native, Hispanic and Aisan people have suffered under the White supremacy that is Minnesota.
