'Long-simmering' tension at South High leads to 'all-out brawl'
MinnPost ^ | 2/15/13 | Brian Lambert

Posted on 02/15/2013 5:40:09 AM PST by crosshairs

That “all-out brawl” at South High in Minneapolis got coverage from virtually every local outlet. At WCCO-TV, Esme Murphy reports: “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] 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 Strib story, by Paul Walsh and Kelly Smith, says, “Guled Omar, a senior, said he was sitting in the cafeteria when the outburst began after a boy hit a girl. ‘I don't feel safe here,’ Omar said. ‘This is something that has been going on’ for at least two years, he said. ‘I don't know if it's because we're minorities of the newest immigrant group,’ Omar added, saying he has complained to the principal and the School District.”

KSTP-TV’s story, reported by Joe Mazan, says: “Classes will be in session Friday, the district said Thursday evening. The school will implement a safety plan ‘to ensure that there is support for a safe learning environment.’ Additional counselors and support staff will be on hand. The school will operate under a ‘code yellow’ Friday. Students will remain in their classrooms during class periods and access in and out of the building will be limited. The school will be on its normal schedule.”

The Somalis will never integrate into our society. The government was really stupid for letting them come into the country.

There are few people on this planet with a lower opinion of American blacks than African blacks; they look at how much is offered to them, and how they squander. They also look at how they prey on people who actually contribute to society, and are bewildered that we don’t just keep them in cages.

‘I don't know if it's because we're minorities or the newest immigrant group,’..

Boy they sure learn to play that race card quickly. Funny thing is they played it against another group of blacks.

Chaos when two different cultures collide.

“it’s a pride thing”
Both groups have a false inflated opinion of self. A feel-good fake self-esteem. In order to bolster their self-image they put down and assault people not in their group.

Good to see one victim group tussling with another victim group about who’s the best victim group.

We’ve had the same problems over in the next county. One person described it as “Black students vs really black student”. The Americans pick on the Africans for being too dark.

“The Somalis will never integrate into our society. The government was really stupid for letting them come into the country.”

As our society descends into a welfare-mentality porn show, I think there is something to be said for people that cling to their traditions (my children are told we are visitors here). The government put them into what must seem to be the most God-forsaken place for East Africans; Minnesota has some of the lowest temps in the lower 48 states.

Good catch. It completely went over my head the first time. It reminds me of the Olympics a couple of years ago when some ditz couldn’t stop referring to a black athlete born and raised in Canada as “African American”. He had to correct her four or five times: “ma’am, I don’t know how to say it any clearer: I’m not African, and I’m not American.”

I’ll bet part of the animosity/hatred has to do with Somalis getting to jump the line for public subsidized housing over the native born blacks. Due to Somalis refugee status. I saw an instance where Haitians were getting in ahead of native blacks

Those recent immigrants from Somalia may know the difference but maybe not the "African Americans", whose ancestors may or may not have come from Africa.

Good point. Its not a problem until it leaks regularly into the neighborhoods of the our Betters. Until then these sorts of stories will be nothing more than bylines. However, as you pointed out (correctly) that its only a matter of time until it gets there.

They weren't 'allowed' to come in. They were brought in. Ask the Black Caucus what they were thinking when they demanded it. Who knows why they chose Minnesota and Maine? Neither location makes sense. Nothing about the project makes any sense. The poor immigrants didn't know about running water, washing machines, escalators and certainly knew nothing about snow and freezing temperatures.

If the 8%/20% numbers are indicative of the racial makeup of the kids in the cafeteria, then 7 out of 10 kids were not part of the fight or joined in just for fun.

So, let’s work out the de facto definition of “African American”, since obviously it isn’t “an american of african origin”...

Just from observation, what I can tell from their self definition is this:
“a person with skin ‘darker than a paper bag’ whose cultural tendencies tend to be aligned with that of the urban, anti-Western Civilization thug”?

I would like a list of the 100 or so Americans most responsible for importing these assimilable savages into our country.

I put them in the same category as kitchen workers who put poison into the soup.
