DeCory: race relations in Rapid City 'a powderkeg'

Dallas DeCory Sr. is an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Nation running for the Rapid City Council in Ward 4. He is pledging to work on race and human relations.

North Rapid is a diverse community and home to many tribal members.
“A lot of people I’ve talked to, they’re not so much concerned with getting a crack in the road fixed or if they don’t have a gutter or whatnot," said DeCory, who grew up in Lakota Homes and has 16 years experience in business as owner and operator of Warhorse Roofing Co. "They’re more concerned with people not getting along.” He calls race relations in Rapid City “a powderkeg," adding, “That fuse is getting shorter and shorter.” [Rapid City Journal]
