Here Is The "New Face Of North Minneapolis" Video That Don Allen Of IBNN Doesn't Want You To See...
Video by JordanNeighbor, blog post by John Hoff
Don Allen, a controversial blogger and self-described "businessman" whose bile-filled criticisms are mostly leveled at leaders within the black community, one of which recently said IBNN blog was "the equivalent of black on black crime," was the subject of a recent blog post here on Johnny Northside in light of the surprising news of Don Allen's $15,000 contract with the Minneapolis school system for video production, click here for that blog post.
Some of us kind of figured Don Allen might swiftly remove or "set to private" his "New Face of North Minneapolis" video if too much attention were brought to it, so a "fair comment and criticism" copy was made by a member of the community, which you can see above, embedded. As anticipated and predicted, the "New Face" video in question was set to "private" on YouTube so it couldn't be viewed shortly after it was linked from this blog and criticized as an example of Don Allen's video production skills and controversial content.
The purpose of this back-up video is not to...
...infringe anybody's copyright (worthless though it may be) but to make sure the document can't be hidden from fair comment and criticism.
So here it is. It speaks loudly for itself, as does the fact attempts were made to conceal it from being freely and easily viewed.
