Police problems seem so much easier to solve when they are in another state. Local questions involving police use of force, or hate speech on the internet, or minority recruitment, seem not as extreme as issues far away, and so go unattended. Neglected more are systemic inequities in our own businesses, churches or neighborhoods. The closer to home racism gets, the harder it is to change. We'd rather fix Minnesota. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
