i was just wondering out of curiousty..i live in london and there are all diffrant races cultures here,there are alot of somalians to..
ive never really spoken to any somalians as i get the impression you stick with your own people and dont really mix(which is cool(:

im interested to no,if somalians ever mix with other races/cultures??
i have never met anyone who is bi racial (mixed with somalian?

i dont no much about your culture,but would you mix with other races??is it against your culture to do so??

this question is purely out of interest,as london is so mixed and theres many bi racial people but never have i met a person who is mixed with somalian..i was thinking maybe you are very into your beliefs so you wont date out..please correct me if im wrong.

hope you dont mind me asking..much luv(:

I agree Sthldn gitl.

I seen a few Somalian females I mean the young americanize one dating black man. If you where the parent of one of those girls what would you do? Would you dis own her for dating outside of her culture or what?

Because..they will come on the thread and ask why are all these AA's always talking about them. There was a thread entitled 'Are Somlians Black' or something like that..that was made by a mixed-race Brazillian girl..and they have been mad ever sinse.

Hi south london girl. I am Somali and have been to london many times. Most Somalis over there are new comers and the main reason Somalis dont mix with others is because we are African Muslims. The only thing many Somalis feel they share with other Blacks(especially Caribeans) is our race/colour.. Nothing else.. And we dont mix much with Asian┬┤Muslims either because they dont seem to like us. This might be the main reason why Somalis in the UK dont mix much with other ethnicities.

The other reason could be that we are tribal people who mlostly(especially back home) only marry within our clanes(let alone other races). If you dont have a clane and live in Somalia you are tribeless or more like no one. We've lived with a clanesystem for thousands years and if we mix with other ethnicities our kids would not belong to a clane..

In BTW you dont see many biracial Somalis because most Somalis migrate to the UK during the 90's eventhough the Somali community in UK is the oldest African community. Peace to you:))..

well im a girl that lives in south london too and somali and its odd that you don't meet many of us cause theres quite a lot down here where did you get the idea we don't mix with other races most of my friends are either from the carribean or african or white. and many of the younger somalis i know seem to be like me too. and to answer your question yeah we do mix with other races one of my nephews is half jamaican and another is half white. race isn't a big deal its more religion and other things like culture

i think our culture is somewhat quite different than to British blacks so its hard for them to understand us and vice versa. I remeber when i was
in school and the other black girls used to say i wasn't black and Somalis are not black it tends to make you feel different in fact i was called a white girl with a tan lol. But anyways i love other cultures and people its just that theres so much ignorance out there.

Because these Somalians keep saying we have an obsession with them and a inferiority complex,so thats why i had to state that a black american did not create this thread.

Or they'd just get upset with us some more.

we somalis like to stick to our own. since we are very conservative. we are aslo muslims and do not mix with non muslims. if we mix we lose our identiy.
