Donna Cassutt, 51, of Minneapolis, who is with Minnesotans for a Fair Economy, a protest sponsor, said she was getting arrested to underscore her view that Congress should pass President Obama's jobs bill and to emphasize her frustration that unemployment of black Minnesotans is 22 percent, about three times that of whites.
