Probably done by Somalis to set themselves up for a phony lawsuit.

With friendly attitudes like yours to deal with, I'm sure the store owner is the one to blame. Absolutely.

Never know I guess...however, St Cloud is not exactly known for their acceptance of someone who is not white. I lived there during college, quite the interesting town.

St Cloud is Minnesota's "deep south". Not one of my non-white friends who either went to college up there or lived their briefly enjoyed staying there. The locals definitely have a different mindset up there.

Our office building was spray painted last month with 6 words vs. 2 words and we didn't get a newspaper article or a press conference.

Just some cheap publicity. They spray paint the front of their own store, the media show up in droves because it appears to be a racist incident then all of the bleeding heart liberal pieces of crap rush down to show support of the poor immigrant just so long as he isn't from Europe. I mean, how cheesy. They already removed the paint, did anybody actually see it? And all you St. Cloud bashers just shut up already. The problem with the people there isn't the locals, it's all the puke coming in from out of town that cause the trouble.

That is one of the most covertly racist cities I have lived in. They will be all "MN Nice" to your face and then get racist on your @55 when you are not around.

They need to change their name to White Cloud.

I know where that market is - across from Bonanza - where only the hicks and hillbillies would go to eat low quality all you can eat salad bar. Next to it is a bunch of thrift stores - once again for the white trash. I guess the white trash didn't want a legit market where they shop.... bunch of inbreds!

Do some research Jeff, or are you too stupid to google or bing things. There is a photograph of the spray painted words in the SC Times

I'm sure what this Somali biz owner needs in a racist city like St. Cloud (or White Cloud like the previous guy wrote) is putting his name and store in the paper which is why he spray painted and cleaned his own store. You are a dolt, Jeff, and all the rest of you commenters who doubt that it happened.

As far as the puke coming from out of town.... its the whole frickin area that is [email protected] racist - doesn't matter if they are from the town next door. However, if you are thinking they are coming from the Metro to do it - you're more of a mor0n than i thought you were.

Wow! I live in St. Cloud, and I sure hope all of you stay in the Twin Cities! What a bunch of ignorant, racist comments! Read the article in the SCTimes before you spout off about something you know ABSOLUTELY nothing about! Sheesh!

What is up with St. Cloud?? There's always a racial incident happening in that city, whether it's on the university campus or somewhere around town. I wouldn't be suprised if someone gets lynched or has a cross burned on their lawn --- or has that already happened?

These people need to go home. If no one else will put there foot down, then we as citizens need to. Whoever did this should get the key to the city.

I would be in complete support of newspapers going back over the records of the last couple of years and posting the IP addresses along with the match to the inet subscriber's name.

You can bet they capture all kinds of data; I've seen how rich it is. I call on them to release it. Particularly if the real name has news value.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
