Reports say it was a “pride thing.” (Awww, those Muslim ‘sensibilities’ again?) The fight, which involved up to 300 students, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8% of students who are Somali Muslims and the 20% who are African Americans.
MINNPOST Guled Omar, a Muslim senior, said he was sitting in the cafeteria when the outburst began after a boy hit a girl. ‘I don’t feel safe here,’ Omar said. ‘This is something that has been going on’ for at least two years, he said. ‘I don’t know if it’s because we’re minorities of the newest immigrant group,’ Omar added, saying he has complained to the principal and the School District.” (Oh, here we go, Muslims are so good at playing victim)
Police at the scene said they had to use chemical agent to get the crowd under control as they were being pelted with objects as they tried to break things up. One student, Abdi Sheikh, said he saw hundreds of students fighting in what appeared to be a racial incident. (And what races would that be? Somali Muslims are black, too)
