Somali Muslims attack African Americans in Minnesota High School



http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenf...a-high-school/

Bringing huge numbers of Muslim Somalis into the United States and depositing them in places like Minnesota may rank as the one of the worst policies of the last three years and the growing violence is only the tip of the iceberg.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A number of police cars responded to Minneapolis South High School Thursday after an alleged food fight escalated into a melee involving 200 to 300 students.

Sgt. William Palmer, of the Minneapolis Police Department, said no weapons were involved in the incident. However, four people were taken to the hospital following the melee. Police were pelted by thrown objects as they rushed to break up the brawl.

Twelve people complained that they had been sprayed with mace. Police at the scene said they had to use chemical agent to get the crowd under control as they were being pelted with objects as they tried to break things up.

One student, Abdi Sheikh, said he saw hundreds of students fighting in what appeared to be a racial incident.

“A big riot,” he said. “It was all types of races.”

Another student, Symone Glasker, said that an initial fight happened during the school’s first lunch period. By the time the third lunch period started, all the hype from the initial fight caused tensions to boil over.

She said the fights were over pride.

“I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,” she said. “They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.”

She also said “boys were hitting girls” and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.

The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.

The Somalis are African, not African-Americans, and as Muslims they are taught to think of Christians as an inferior species.

The stupidity of that article and the comments on that blog show a high degree of ignorance and white racism.

Re: Somali Muslims attack African Americans in Minnesota High School

In London, black Afro Caribbeans are extremely racist towards Black Africans. It's a nightmare in the workplace. It has nothing to do with religion, it's a deep loathing on behalf of the BACs who see the BAs as so inferior they are offended by them! It's crazy but true.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Somalis began to leave their country as refugees to escape war and violence starting in the early 1990s. In the last two decades, tens of thousands have made Minnesota their home.

The new book "Somalis in Minnesota" takes a look at how some of our newest neighbors are settling, and the ways they're contributing to their new home.

Its the same thing happened in Liberia when Americans went there to "help them out"

Still, the transition has been difficult, and many continue to struggle with the changes.

The 200 Somalis who have come here are among thousands of Somali Muslims the federal government resettled throughout the nation. Most spent time in refugee camps before coming. When they arrived, they had their own expectations about what America would be like, but they were in for a surprise.

For example, the Somalian refugees who entered Schenley High School said they were ridiculed by other students about their dress. The girls observe religious traditions by wearing clothing that covers most of their arms and legs and includes head scarves.

"At school, people told us we were stupid," Ms. Muya said. "It was hot, and the American students thought we were crazy to wear so much clothing."

Other students saw the Somalis as outsiders. "The African-American kids say we don't belong here. They keep telling us to go back to Africa," said Fatuma Muya, another refugee who attended Schenley and is part of Amina's extended family.

Re: Somali Muslims attack African Americans in Minnesota High School

But it's cool that there is never any tension or conflict among whites of different nationalities or religions.

Not really!

For me it's just interesting that after many years of debate in the UK of racism and other issues of 'equality', the racism debate has focussed practically 100% on white racism against black and (to a much lesser degree) Asian.

The reality is I have witnessed racism from Black Afro Caribbeans against Black Africans, as well as against Asians. I've also seen Asians being racist against other Asians: Indian Sikhs view Muslims as inferior jobless trash. I'm not criticising any particular group. It's just interesting given I live in a very multicultural city to see that actually no one really likes anyone! It's the hypocracy though of charges of racism always being focussed on whites.
