White Allies - Minnesota a Bigger Mess

I was driving home after a long day of work yesterday, and was talking to a Minnesota buddy on the phone.  "Black Lives Matter shut down any freeways there today?" I joked.  He replied, "No, but a bunch of white people shut down 35W!"  I laughed at what had to be an obvious frivolous reply, and our conversation veered off to another direction.

Turns out he was right: a bunch of white people shut down 35W during rush hour.

I lived in Minnesota my whole life, except for these past seven years.  In that time, I get glimpses of the state through a prism of how the other 49 states view it.  Given these past couple of weeks, it is hard not to view it as anything other than a raging liberal enclave; one without a shred of common sense.  

As somebody that still calls the state "home," it's damned embarrassing.

Think it will end anytime soon?  Think again.  Here's a statement from the group (released before they went to jail):  "...comfort and business as usual must be disrupted until substantive changes occur in our city and throughout the country.” 

Whitey, you've been too damned comfortable, and now you're going to pay.  Says liberal, self-loathing, socialist/anarchist Whitey.

Welcome to Minnesota.
