The Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder offers this profile of Farheen Hakeem, a Muslim woman who is running for mayor of Minneapolis. The article notes that Hakeem values the "Black vote" and "is quite passionate about fighting institutional racism." According to Hakeem, institutional racism
is completely linked to poverty, and the other problems that exist in our city right now — unemployment, underemployment, etc. I’m really passionate about it, because not only have I had to fight that for myself, but I’ve also had to fight that at the grassroots level, in many communities.For more information on Hakeem’s campaign, visit www.hakeemformayor.org.
