I got an email from my former high school teammate while I was watching the Giants v. Steelers game. Another bro. from Howard.
It was about Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison’s potential rise to the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). We both have known the Congressman since our shared student/athlete, football-playing days at the University of Detroit High. So, it’s safe to say that we wish him the best in the current political climate.
No need to sleep on it. I will say, though, I am stunned by the naming of Dr. Ben Carson, another Detroiter, as the presumptive Secretary of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).
The same agency that runs demolition programs and housing vouchers that impact so many folks in cities like Detroit and Chicago.
