The New York Times continues to get its way into Minnesota's bad books, and this time a political editor at the newspaper who convicts Minneapolis city.
Minnesotan's Wednesday Wednesday was the Deputy Editor of the NYT, Jonathan Weisman, who sent it a tweet which he subsequently set out and clarified.
Responding to it were Waleed Shahid's Democratic strategies, indicating that there are two of the most progressive representatives in the House, Reps, Ilhan Omar from Minneapolis and Rashida Tlaib from Detroit, the Midwest and are determined to Medicare-For-All, also notes that “Medicare and Social Security entitlements” are playing very well ”in the Midwest.
In response, Weisman sent tweeted: "Saying @RashidaTlaib (D-Detroit) and @IlhanMN (D-Minneapolis) from the Midwest are similar to saying that @RepLloydDoggett (D-Austin) is from Texas or that @repjohnlewis ( D-Atlanta) from the South of the South.
The implication here is that cities such as Minneapolis and Detroit should not be considered as part of the Midwest, and their cosmopolitan populations are quite different from the “core” stereotype that is still evident among the East Coast journalists.
The racial racial base which implies that the “Midwest” and “Deep South” is basically white, although Weisman includes a white representative of Lloyd Doggett among his examples.
Weisman backed up later on Wednesday, posting: "Earlier this morning I tried to make a point about regional differences in politics between urban and rural areas. I destroyed the tweets because I understand I didn't make my point adequately."
In late, the damage was done. He incurred a total angry Minnesota force.
We would put your attention to this column by Jennifer Brooks Star Tribune, which suggests that even by Weisman in the Minnesota countryside is wrong, noting that large farmers at Dakota County and many rural cities rely on immigrant labor.
"Minnesotan does not have your race, your creed, your orientation, your politics, and the Norwegian mum of Minnesotan. You refuse to build the last piece of bars in the detached room. You live in Minnesotan and you are Minnesotan who lives in the Midwest."
Of course, we should not be surprised that such a misunderstanding about Minnesota is expelled from a NYT employee's fingers. We still remember a grape salad gateway, let alone an unusual recommendation to make Jucy Lucy.
