"United Shades": Kamau Bell interviews the Hmong people in the Twin Cities, MN
W. Kamau Bell, on “United Shades of America”, covered the Hmong community in St. Paul MN.
The Hmong group fought with the US during some portions of the Vietnam, especially Nixon’s controversial “secret war in Laos”.
Somalia has also provided a large number of immigrants in the Twin Cities.
I lived in Minneapolis from 1997-2003 and recall that the Libertarian Party of Minnesota candidates did pay attention to the groups.
Much of the show was devoted to food, Bourdain style. The Hmong run many of the farmer’s market stands in the Twin Cities.
