Visiting relatives in Ohio and Minnesota and the story is always the same. So many boys in jail and so few completing school. So many of them selling drugs and killing each other.

I don't hear the same things coming from the Ethiopian or West African communities in America. In college, all the African students were either Habesha or Nigerian or Ghanian. I was always the only Somali.

Why are Somalis the least successful Africans in America?

Because Somalis like their FAILED country are a FAILED PEOPLE.
The image of ones country speaks volume about its own citizens.

Somalia will never find peace and Somali people will never find peace no matter where they migrate.
They are CURSED people, and their land is a CURSED LAND. The land does not yield crops, animal dies, human dies, in 2011 more than 260,000 people died of hunger and starvation.

Today I just heard another tragedy hitting Somalis when boat carrying illegal immigrants capsized at Italian coast.

Why has Islam or Allah not come to Somalis rescue? It's because Allah is a devil rejoicing on Somalis misfortunes.

This problem is evident all over the globe. To answer your question i would like to draw your attention to the somali family with more often than not an absentee father, a single mother with 6 or 7 children to take care of all on her own with little to no skills or no means to provide for them.

Therefore, you see the mother form a bond with her daughters keeping them while allowing her sons to roam freely as they please to do as they please. The boys at this point seek out other boys like themselves and form a family of sorts for protection, a gang of sorts then end up in criminal activity which leads to arrests and even deaths.

so if you want to correct the somali problem world wide we need to have a father and mother who understand the values of marriage, who hold those values sacred and who raise children with the tools they need to succeed in this world. Until somali fathers become more involved in his children's lives particularly the boys who need a father figure they'll continue to fail in school/work and every other responsibility they're presented with.

Somalis ,like most Horn African people are more related to Yemenis/Asiatic/Indian people than African.look without the Suez canal, the arabian peninsula would be part of Africa, most of you are rejected non-African people in Africa, your Asiatic ancestors migrated into the continent a long times ago

You should be asking: Why is Somali divorce rate so high?
If you answer that question, then that should be able to answer all your questions.

This is what a Scot who loves Somalis and visited there several times wrote about the character of Somalis.

".... a parched and quarrelsome corner of north-east Africa full of volatile, vehement tribes and crazy, recalcitrant camels."

"..... his occupations included eliminating rival clansmen, stealing, feuding, praying and engaging in endless litigation over camels and territory. Doubtless, little has changed since then."

"Described as "the Irishmen of Africa", Somalis are proud, violent, romantic, imaginative and quick-witted - not unlike the natives of Erin, a land of lush fertility and EU-boosted prosperity. A country of bush, rocks too hot to touch and brackish water has created a quick-tempered warrior race, fiercer, it is said, than Afghan tribesmen, with a contempt for pain or death, who can pull the trigger, sometimes before they are insulted."

Peacock-proud Somali males often insisted on being treated like prince-lings and, if you had different views, could, socially, cut you dead in more ways than one. Many, however, had an austere dignity about them, best seen when walking, carrying only a spear while their women, burdened with household loads, struggled behind.

The spear and curved dagger have been replaced by the Kalashnikov, the hand-grenade and heavy machine- gun in a ravaged, famine-stricken land - as desolate as Afghanistan - where the government has collapsed and the two chief towns, Mogadishu and Ber-bera, are in ruins after years of civil war and clan feuding.

What he means is Somalis today are a relic of a primitive civilisation and are as savages as the barbarians were during their era.

The bravest, most merciless but, when they accept you, the friendliest of African peoples, the Somalis are also among the most intelligent. If they could overcome centuries of mayhem and murder, they could transform a dangerous African dustbin into a prosperous, modern state
did he say "modern state"?

he has it wrong, the disgruntled british bureaucrats of the sixties you had posted in a previuos thread were more correct.
"somali character and anarchism are a good fit".

I learning to become patient... looks like the guys oft repeated mantra is the somali is impatient.
there is some truth to it.
long live the somali people.

Didn't you say in another thread, the problem with anarchism is that the bad people will dominate and establish another layer of a restructured authority?

You should be applauded for accepting the factual portrayal of Somalis as primitive savages. Indeed, you will agree with these quotes below.

"Me against my brother, my brother and I against our family, our family against our tribe, our tribe against other tribes, all the tribes against Somalia, and Somalia and Somalis against the world"-Somali Proverb

"Do not trade with a Somali for he deceives , if he comes to your door do not open it, and if he breaks in then pray to God for protection".-Arab saying

"The Somalis are a fierce race of republicans, constantly changing political loyalties-the Somalis lived in what amounted to a state of chronic political schizophrenia, verging on of anarchy."-Sir Richard Burton

"When the Somalis are not attacking foreign and manipulating peoples, they are attacking each other, itís an innate almost sexual pleasure to do so, but itís what keeps the Somali occupied"
(author unknown)

"The Somali are the most savage of all African savages and are of such of a wild and inhospitable nature that no stranger can possibly live amongst them".- Col. Outram

"In Somali oral history the Hyena is a representation of cowardice and especially a representation of non-Somali peoples who are enemies towards them, while the fox who is a representation of cunning, intelligence, and deceit is important because its a representation of the Somali people".(author unknown)

"As liars the Somalis are unsurpassed. Whether the lie serves any purpose or not is of no consequence. They love lying for its own sake, and, by constant practice, they do it exceedingly cleverly".(author unkown)

"They are great liars, promise much and perform little, unless it suits their interest."-The Gentleman's magazine: Volume 282

"According to the Somali story of creation God (Waaq) created the Black race and he smiled, and he created the White race and he smiled, and then he created the Somali race and he laughed." (author unkown)

"The Somali lacks emotions like embarrassment and mercy, only cruelty and straight-forwardness. This is a result of the reptilian brain." (author unkown)
