Republican Sen. Dan Hall: “They ruined our neighborhoods with integration and [de]segregation”

But some of his best friends are minorities.

The DFL has released a video of this week’s statement by Burnsville Republican Sen. Dan Hall on school integration. “I watched Minneapolis get destroyed, so I not only didn’t want my kids in the school system,” he said. “I took them out of Minneapolis because they ruined our neighborhoods with integration and [de]segregation.” Hall made his remarks during debate about a move by Minnesota Republicans to repeal school integration laws, specifically a decades-long program that aims to diversify schools in the Twin Cities metro area and Duluth.

The video concludes with the text, “When the vote was taken, every Republican agreed with Sen. Hall and voted to cut desegregation funds.”

Saying that some of your best friends are minorities is code for “I’m a racist.”


  1. I am so proud to be a Minnesotan. The 1st MN saved the Union on July 2nd 1963. Minnesota Naval Reserve sailors sank the first Japanese ship in WWII. Hubert Humphrey gave the speech that drove the racist Dixiecrats out of the party in 1948. He was a leader in the fight for the voting rights act and for the civil rights act of ’64. The U of Minnesota was integrated early and their national championships, which were in no small part to the addition of black players, drove Bear Bryant to tell the leaders at Alabama that he could win too if they would only integrate. So many things to be proud of being a Minnesotan.

    And now we have this filth. This sludge from the dregs of human sewage. These pustules of ignorance wallowing hate, intolerance and bigotry. Our past does not deserve this stain.

  2. Yeah, I can see why ‘minorities’ might not want their kids in school with idiots like him, lest they graduate with a sixth grade reading level and penchant for racism… what a schmuck.

  3. “what the fuck is diversity?” I love living in the twin cities, I sometimes forget that disgusting people like this man even exist.
