Somali-Americans blamed racial tensions for a Minneapolis high school cafeteria melee that began as a food fight and ended with police using chemical spray to break up a brawl involving more than 200 students.

Three students and one staff member at South High School were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries. No weapons were used, police said.

Students threw food, plates and soda bottles at staff and police -- "anything they could get their hands on," police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The fight began about 12:45 p.m. CT and lasted 15 minutes. It was captured on video.

No arrests were made, but police were reviewing surveillance footage, and rioting and disorderly conduct charges could be filed, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

Classes resumed Friday, but the school, which has about 2,200 students, remained on lockdown.

On Tuesday, the student newspaper carried an article in which Somali-American students said racial and ethnic tensions had grown this year.

"This school is not safe for Somali students," Adnan Farah, a junior, told the Star-Tribune. "Throughout this year, there have been a lot of fights."

A school district spokesman would not comment but said racism complaints are taken seriously.

I've never had any problems with AAs. I think AA are the coolest of all people of African descent anywhere.

It's mostly gang-wannabes projecting.

And, of course, the media (mostly white-run) thrives on this sort of thing. This is embarrassing for all of us and it's unfortunate.

Yes, I suppose Jubbaland COULD feed them all. However, I suspect the problem isn't food related. lol

Clearly a product of poor environment. He doesn't know what he is saying so his words shouldn't be held against him.

That is a dumb question. If they are school age they are 2nd generation American. But they are still Somalis and still Muslims. No Muslim wouild evder give up Islam to become a KKKrsitian.
