Duluth mayor, city council depicted in super racist photoshop

Over the weekend, Duluth City Council member Renee Van Nett got a Facebook notification asking her if she would like to be tagged in a photo.

She checked out the image, she says, and just “sat with it for a few minutes.”

“My first response was just ‘wow,’” she says.

The picture was a hokey old cartoon of what appeared to be a handful of people sitting around a fire and passing around a long-stemmed pipe. Several were wearing buckskin or blankets or feathers. Some were wearing cowboy attire. But all their faces were replaced with mugs of the Duluth City Council and mayor.

Van Nett was tagged in the bottom lefthand corner, right above a caption that read, “Explaining Duluth City Council priorities.”
