Black vs. Muslim riot breaks out in Minneapolis school lunch room

That “all-out brawl” at South High in Minneapolis got coverage from virtually every local outlet. At WCCO-TV, Esme Murphy reports: “Twelve people complained that they had been sprayed with mace. 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] said the fights were over pride. ‘I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,’ she said. ‘They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.’ She also said ‘boys were hitting girls’ and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.… The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.”

    When we lived in Minneapolis the Hmong had taken over in the 80’s, now the Somali’s. We left the State. When the Hmongs took over about 75% of some kindergarten classes I decided to skip public school for private. When my daughter was an adult living in an apartment building, it too was taken over by extremely rude Somali’s. Wonder why we all left the state.

    How do you know it is a girl under that burka? you can’t see their ankles to verify the lack of appendages. Besides the blacks couldn’t count to 21 anyways.

    So did the black muslims beat up themselves?
    I’m beginning to think St Paul was part of the popes altarboy gratification program. Why else would such a saintly city have such filth in it’s schools?

    You can thank the federal government. They decide where large groups of immigrants are settled. They chose Minnesota because they feel the state can afford the social programs that immigrants take advantage of.
