FTFA: The recruiters masquerade "as people who are there for you at your lowest point," said Abdul Mohamed, a spokesman for Ka Joog, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit whose name means "stay away," which works to provide positive alternatives for Somali youth through education, the arts and mentorship.  "Instead of shying away from this issue and letting it separate us, it's best if we take it on headstrong and steadfast so in the future we can prevent it from happening," Mohamed said. "At the end of the day, these kids are full of potential."

Despite the efforts of local MN Somali-American leaders, this is going to further inflame the nativist backlash going on in MN, that's for sure. People that fall through the cracks and aren't accepted in the wider community are going to continue to be a source of tension in and around the Twin Cities.

I once rented a room from a Serbian family in Toronto.

Their two teenage sons (who were born in Canada) were preparing to head back to their old country presumably to kick some Croat ass.

It''s sickening to see the old folks infuse their hatreds and bigotry on the young, and sad to see young people getting fished into it.

This reminds me of how a significant percentage of "settlers" in Palestinian territory sound like New Yorkers and do not possess the expected "Izwailee" accent that denotes a regular Hebrew-speaker.

I believe child psychologists call it "failure to bond". For whatever reason, the country of the imagination is superior to the country of one's birth.

Ha ha.  I spent many summers in Northern Minnesota.  Frequently I heard some offhanded comment about how everyone is racist where I'm from (Indiana) followed by some complaint about the God Damn Indians.  In rural Minnesota, it's not racism if it's about the Native Americans.

I can definitely see it.  I lived in an apartment complex in MN that had a fair number of Somali refugees.  Other than the other refugees, there was no real place for them to feel connected.  Hell, I had trouble feeling connected so I can't imagine what they go through.  I imagine that the young men can be easily enticed if they feel isolated.

I was at the 400 bar in Minneapolis about, jesus, about a decade ago. Ran out of money, and the cash machine was broken. So I went across the street, ended up in this little alcove with a cash machine in it. There were a bunch of Somali kids...18 years old or so, goofing around and hitting each other nearby.

When I headed back to the bar, they started shouting and chasing after me. I panicked and sprinted. They chased me down over three blocks, cornered me....and handed me my wallet back.

THIS.

I live in the Toronto area and see disaffected young people who you know are brainwashed by their idiot parents who should have never come here or been allowed to immigrate.  Many of the kids see the light and shun their parents for their behaviour, but there are some who put their parents on a pedestal and follow their teachings as if its the gospel.

I have also had experience with Serbs who hate where they live and want to crush Croats here in Canada and "back home".   Canada needs to do a better job of screening immigrants and saying "no, you're not welcome".

I totally believe in multiculturalism, however that only works if there is assimilation to a large degree.  It doesn't have to be absolute but they can't keep all of the retarded traditions of the old world they left....and left because of said retarded traditions.

My parents (who are not of British heritage) immigrated to Canada, and had to make adjustments to their life.  They taught us what we need to know about the old world, and why they left.  They passed down traditions that do not conflict with our Canadian culture.

I've been to places like that. There's a town called Haven, Ks. It's a completely Mennonite/ Amish community. They look at anyone who dresses in modern clothes; like that person had a third eye. My paternal grandmother enjoyed going there to get veggies, wool thread, and such.

/ things have changed a lot. And Mennonite communities aren't nearly as insular as they were even 10 years ago. Some communities actually survive on tourism.

because as much as many farkers pretend it doesn't exist, race and xenophonic mentality do exists and do play a role.

If Adam Lanza had been Adam bin Muhammad, Adam Juan Rodriguez, Adam Xiao Bo Lai and his skin tone a few shades 'browner', 'yellower' etc you can bet your last penny the people that shares the same race/ethnic group like him would've been subjected to some vigilantism, hate crimes or at the very least severe discrimination from the public.

Stomped many a brain cell in that place in my college days.  My roommate drew cartoons of all the people he drank with there on the wall of the men's room that were destroyed in the fire they had in the early 1980s...which is coincidentally the last time they cleaned the men's room there.

They must be sick of the heat as there is a huge community of them in Seattle as well.

I personally dislike them because they're essentially a bunch of backwards yokels.  We have enough rednecks in our country as it is, so there is no need to import that crap into our country, especially when there are thousands of well educated folks from Europe, India and eastern Asia who come with a lot less crazy waiting to get in.

Although for as much as I shake my head over seeing little Somalian girls dressed in ḥijābs, what really got my blood boiling was when I saw some dude drive up our cul-de-sac with a female passenger wearing a niqāb.  In Seattle.  Those people and their children are never going to integrate with society and are going to be a source of tension for a very, very long time.
