    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Hundreds of homeless Minnesotans are being forced out of Minneapolis parks. Encampments have spread throughout city parks since the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board allowed it last month. But now, the board has decided to limit encampments in parks to 25 tents. At Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis, that means downsizing, according to Minneapolis Park Commissioner-at-Large Londel French. “We’ve been kind of letting folks know that they may need to be moving,” French said. “Like a week or two ago we were telling folks you should start thinking about other places to go.” French says there isn’t a deadline right now for when the people who live in Powderhorn Park need to be out. “If we do...
    Officials in the North Carolina city of Asheville have apologized for its historic role in slavery and discrimination and voted to provide reparations. The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that unanimous vote was taken by the City Council on Tuesday.

    The University of Mississippi has removed a controversial Confederate statue from its grounds, but has drawn fresh criticism for plans to 'create a shrine' to it in its new home in a nearby cemetery. The marble statue of a saluting Confederate soldier was taken down from its place at the heart of the Oxford campus Tuesday, over a year since students and staff voted to remove it.  It marks the latest in a string of racist and Confederate symbols being taken down from public places, as calls mount for an end to systemic racism across America in the wake of the 'murder' of George Floyd. Last month, Mississippi lawmakers made history when they finally bowed to public pressure and voted...

    By JESSICA GRESKO, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday made it easier for the president to fire the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The justices struck down restrictions on when the president can remove the bureau’s director. “The agency may ... continue to operate, but its Director, in light of our decision, must be removable by the President at will,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote. The court’s five conservative justices agreed that restrictions Congress imposed on when the president can fire the agency's director violated the Constitution. But they disagreed on what to do as a result. Roberts and fellow conservative justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh said the restrictions could be stricken from...

    Bill Colgin/Getty Images Mississippi is close to removing a confederate emblem from its state flag after a bipartisan resolution by almost a dozen lawmakers to change the design passed through the State Senate Saturday by a 36-14 vote. On Saturday, Gov. Tate Reeves (R-MS) said the legislature had been “deadlocked” on the issue but he was seeing progress. “The argument over the 1894 flag has become as divisive as the flag itself and it’s time to end it,” he continued. “If they send me a bill this weekend, I will sign it,” Reeves wrote on Facebook. Reeves also wrote that any vote regarding the flag would not be the end of their work, that their real job was “to bring...

    Meaghan Ellis June 25, 2020 0 Comments Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is slamming protesters vandalizing statues and monuments amid civil unrest and protests over police brutality and racial inequality following the death of George Floyd. During Thursday’s Senate Session on police reform, McConnell sounded off about presumed double standards where protesters are concerned. “The American people have been asked to swallow a number of contradictions over the past few weeks,” McConnell said, adding, “Americans have been told they should very carefully distinguish good people from bad apples if they are talking about protests and riots. But they must not make the same dissension if they are talking about the police.” He went on to criticize protesters targeting...
    After browsing for a new movie or TV show to watch on Netflix, people may throw something on before deciding 10 minutes in they’re just not that interested. Netflix’s new “remove from row” feature is designed to make it easier for people to remove those titles from their currently watching offerings. The goal is to give people more control over what appears on their Netflix homepage. The “continue watching” row is one of the most prominent, appearing at the top of the homepage. This makes it easy to jump back into a TV show that someone might be making their way through, or pick right back up where they left off with The Irishman (if you’re like me and...
