PARK RAPIDS -- Alleged racial discrimination issues were raised at the Park Rapids council table this week.

Cass Lake Mayor Wayne LaDuke addressed the council Tuesday about two incidents that allegedly happened in town.


The first involved a business that reportedly told tribal students it was out of a product they requested.

A few minutes later, the students saw other customers outside of the business with the same product that they wanted to order.
