If the Somalis there are doing well and getting along well with others then good.

I've always advocated better communication between peoples as a means of working together and solving disputes. However other residents who live in MN have variying opinions on the overall status and decorum of resident Somalis.

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean that they hate you are your people. It could mean that they just have different sources of information. Americans excel at bring different groups together, and I think you would be wise to at least hear what some of them have to say about what they consider problematic.

You don't have to agree. I don't agree with 98% of the stuff I read here. But you also don't have to be closed minded and retract into this shell thinking that everybody hates you because negative comments were directed towards certain members of your group.

Oh I heard what they said: they basically said that Somalis were parasites. In reality that is not true, so they are just hating. So they need to wake up from their hateful nightmare and smell the damned coffee.

Put the Hatorade back in the fridge, you haters. We all know that Somalis in the Twin Cities are doing good for themselves.
The Somalis came to that place in the 90´s wih nothing except for their refugee status and now there are almost 1000 businesses owned by Somalis.
We have many many Somalis in Ohio and they are Refugees just as the Asian Refugees from such places as Vietnam and Laos, Russian Jewish Refugees and other European Refugees fleeing their countries. I agree with you about the fact that the Somalis are productive and much of the talk is just racist because Refugees in the USA is NOT NEW- why all the talk about these? All Refugees have come here in need and got the help. Can't deal with someone of a different color? What a disgrace. The Devil must have these complainers by the Tail.

Yeah those complainers/haters are nothing but hypocrites who are only after to pin their own personal failures on foreigeners.
It is good to know that there are normal people (like yourself) out there.

Wrong!!

The problem isn't with foreigners. We have a huge Hmong population, for example. No problems with them at all. Great people. We have significant Mexican, Chinese and Russian populations. No problems. Love to have them here.

It's the Somalis. In all of my years they are the first people I've disliked as a group.

And this idea of Somalis as "hard working" is a fantasy. If you want to see hard-working, spend a day with a Mexican roofing crew. After your hospital recovery you can talk to me about hard work.

The one (and only) thing Somalis are supposed to be good at is insults, and this is the best you can come up with? Sad.

That was not an attempt to insult you. I was just stating the obvious. Insulting you would be to easy, it would be like kicking someone who is alreday down, I just don´t do that.
But maybe you should seek some counselling pr some other professional help for your issues, cause honestly..blaming somalis for your miserable life will not help you.
I am truly sorry that you have a bad life...I hope things work out for you. Anyways, I don´t want bad karma, so this will be the last time i respond to you, Greg.
Get that help, before it is too late. Poor guy.

My sympathies. They moved to my neighborhood a number of years ago and established a foothold. They live like ants with 2-3 families in an apartment. There is never a crowd less than 50 hanging around in front of the Halal meat market. Instead of stepping up and solving the problems in their own homeland, they have come to my home and turned it into Mogadishu. They seem to not understand what sidewalks are for, as they just mill about in the street. Makes it difficult to drive. As a whole, they do seem to be nice enough people and not criminals or anything, but your property value will drop.

An attempt to tie me to actions perpetrated by people I am no way associated with that happened hundreds of years ago?

That is just weak.

Should I hold you personally responsible for Viking rampages?

You should change your title from TRUTH to DRAMA.

The Viking rampages were nothing compared to the genocide that the Native Americans were subjected to by your ancestors.
It may have happened centuries ago, but the consequences of that oppression is still prevalent, are you denying it?

I don't deny it happened.
I do deny that I or anybody I am even loosely connected to had anything to do with it.
I am also saying that YOU bringing it up has ZERO relevance to the issue currently in discussion. I am also saying that you must be at a complete loss of intellectual and relevant points, which forced you to resort to such a weak statement. I will further say that such a lame and baseless attack puts you solidly in the category of DRAMA QUEEEN, where you once held the position of someone that actually had something to say.

You are talking about Immigrants who come to the united states, and you are talking about them in a negative way. Your ancestors were once immigrants, and horrible immigrants who mass-murdered the local people (the NATIVE Americans), and enslaved millions.
Are you denying that?
Look at the big picture:
What is a somali crowd outside the meat market compared to the genocide of Native Americans by your ancestors? Honestly...
