In the news article, "St. Paul's first Somali cop 'will be a great thing' for city" it talked about St. Paul's first Somali police officer.
I thought that the story was trying to move away from stereotypes. It tried to convey that change is happening, but very slowly. It talked of a Hmong police officer and his struggle with being a police officer because he received death threats from the Hmong community, showing that being a minority officer can be very difficult, which maybe why the numbers are so low.
"After Thursday's graduation, the department's sworn ranks will tally 594, including 34 Asian, 34 black, 25 Latino and six American Indian officers." I think that this line conveys that change is happening, even though the number of minority police officers compared to those white is extremely big.
I thought that the reporter didn't dig too deep into the topic in terms of sources. He only had two sources, the Somali police officer and the Hmong police officer. The reporter didn't talk to any other community members of any minority about this issue.
