New American Africans Believe they are Superior to Native Born African-Americans (who knew!)

Over the years, while writing at Refugee Resettlement Watch, an article would come my way that hinted at the problems within the African “community”  between the new African immigrants and our own African-Americans.

(Resettlement contractors loved to place the new Africans in predominantly African-American neighborhoods with, I suppose, the naive notion that since they are all blacks they would love and embrace each other!)

If there were tensions, it was always just hinted (or immediately swept under the rug if a reporter dared mention it) and I suspect that is because it goes against the narrative—how is it possible for a black immigrant to be bigoted against another black person?

Everyone knows only white people can be racists and bigots, right?

Much to my surprise here is an opinion piece at MinnPost published a few days ago by second generation Ethiopian immigrant Eskender A. Yousuf.

It took me a few minutes of reading and rereading to understand that he is basically saying that the new immigrant Africans look upon African-Americans, who have been here for generations, as riff-raff, inferior to the real Africans newly arrived.

What is going on, two big admissions in the space of a week about problems in the Minnesota immigrant “community.”

Don’t miss my post at RRW about how Somali culture dictates that women can be treated with abuse.

Police outside of Minneapolis South High in 2013. “The recent brawl at South High School in Minneapolis is said to have, at least partially, been caused by friction between Somali and African American communities.” https://www.mprnews.org/story/2013/02/25/daily-circuit-south-high-somali-african-american-tension

A call to address anti-Blackness within African immigrant communities

“I was on a recent conference call helping an organization put a statement together and this Sudanese brother says, ‘I don’t understand this Black Lives Matter stuff, I have never felt racism in this country.’

You know, I’m just letting people have it now … we [African-Americans] can sniff out anti-Blackness right when we step in the room, wherever we are. … I have never felt welcomed or comfortable in any African immigrant establishment in Minnesota.”

These words come from a recent conversation I had with a close connection of mine.

Eskender A. Yousuf.  I’m guessing the Leftists in MN are not too happy with Mr. Yousuf’s admission!

This was nothing short of our regular conversations and check-ins; however, this time it felt different. With the wake of the current racial uprisings, it provoked me to publicly call attention this issue.

As a second-generation Ethiopian immigrant who is ethnically Oromo, I was born and raised in the Twin Cities. I never imagined that the place I call home would become the epicenter of historic racial uprisings and protests that sparked a fire across the world.

Stood in solidarity

Amongst the sea of protesters that stood in solidarity in the streets of Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd’s death were 1.5 and second-generation African immigrants (1.5 generation immigrants refer to those who came to America before they reached 12 years old; second-generation immigrants refer to those who were born in America).

Minneapolis, in fact, is home to a diverse population of racially Black individuals and a large fraction of them are African immigrants and refugees. We have the largest population of Somali immigrants, a vast number of Ethiopians, as well as immigrants from other African countries like Eritrea, Sudan, Liberia, and Nigeria. While African immigrant communities showed up in large numbers to protest police brutality and racial injustices, an oft-neglected nuance is the prevalence of anti-Blackness within these very communities.

The support for the Black Lives Matter movement from the African immigrant community demands that we address and correct the racist practices within our own community that are often left unquestioned.

For us to truly support the call for racial injustice, we must take the step eradicate anti-Blackness within our own communities.

Growing up in the Twin Cities, I have witnessed countless anti-Black sentiments, expressions, attitudes, and practices from close relatives and community members. Some examples include: looking down on marrying African-Americans, addressing and treating African-Americans and their communities by negative racialized stereotypes (i.e. lazy, not hardworking, criminals) and our perpetual disassociation with the African-American community in order to distinctly identify ourselves as African immigrants and not “Black/African-American.”

This identification process has been heavily documented and proved as a mechanism for us to distance ourselves from African-American communities for various reasons, including social stratification.

I didn’t want to post the whole thing, but there is more good stuff, so continue reading here.

Wouldn’t it be great if the politically incorrect Mr. Yousuf and the Sudanese “brother” he quotes made it to cable TV news.  I can dream can’t I!

Portland, Maine Police Department Attacked by Another Ungrateful African

You likely won’t see this story in the legacy media because it doesn’t fit the meme—Black African refugee good, police bad.

And, there is a tip in this story with something you might do (assuming you are prepping your family and making your home safe, lambasting your elected officials, and buying your Goya foods)!

Thanks to Frank for the tip!

From Portland WGAN:

Police charge man connected to parking garage shooting

Police have charged a man in connection with the shooting at the Portland Police Department garage earlier this month.

Based on extensive experience posting on Hassans, I say this creep who attacked a police garage, is a Somali and most likely a refugee we welcomed to America with our tax dollars.

Abdikareem Hassan, of Portland, was arrested July 5th for driving under the influence in a stolen vehicle. The car in question matched the description of the dark sedan that opened fire on the Portland Police Department garage that same night.

While in custody, police say Hassan became uncooperative and assaulted an officer and FBI special agent in addition to damaging a police vehicle.

Hassan was then charged with refusal to submit to arrest, assault on a police officer, assault on a federal officer, and criminal mischief.

Additional evidence was provided on Sunday, linking Hassan to the non-fatal shooting, and he is now being charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and illegal possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

Chief Clark

Portland Police Chief Frank Clark thanked the public for their support following the shooting, saying “this type of attack on law enforcement is disheartening and personal, but the overwhelming number of positive letters, social media posts, statements denouncing violence against the department, and the calls we have received reaffirm our belief that we have the support of our community.”

 

Now that is something you can do!

Even if you aren’t a Mainer, send a message of thanks to this police department and any department in the country where they are keeping you safe while under attack by lowlifes.

In my mind this is an especially egregious case because America gave him a chance at a better life and he says to us: S**** you!

If anyone has a pipeline to Tucker Carlson, he might be interested in the Maine Somali attacking the Portland police!

African Woman Assaults Mom at Bus Stop Because She “Hates Whites”

I’m guessing at the outset that the attacker is a Somali, just a guess.  And, if she is, this news could have been posted at Refugee Resettlement Watch this morning along with a post there about a Somali teen attacking his white neighbor and walking free.

Hate crime charges being brought against Nimo Jire Kalinle.

From the New York Post:

Woman punched stranger at Oregon bus stop because she hates ‘white people’: court docs

A black woman is facing hate crime charges in Oregon for allegedly attacking a mom at a bus stop while saying that she hated “white people,” court documents show.

One more ‘new American’ we welcomed to live among us. Well, not we, but the US State Department.

Nimo Jire Kalinle, 42, on Jan. 19 began punching Janae Jordan in the face after getting off a bus at a stop in North Portland, where the victim had been waiting with her husband and young daughter, according to court documents obtained by The Oregonian.

“It’s because you’re white and I hate white people,” Kalinle told Jordan when the woman asked why she was attacking her, a probable cause affidavit shows.

The victim’s husband stepped in and restrained Kalinle, who is black, until cops arrived, KPTV reports.

Jordan told investigators she did not know Kalinle and had never met her prior to the alleged bias attack, the station reports.

Kalinle, who was taken into custody Sunday, was later indicted on multiple criminal counts in the bus stop assault, including first-degree bias crime, felony assault and interfering with public transportation. She pleaded not guilty to those charges Monday, KPTV reports.

Kalinle was arrested after failing to show up for a Feb. 5 arraignment, prompting authorities to issue a bench warrant for her arrest in the bus stop beatdown, The Oregonian reports.

I expect that when she appears in court on March 6th, we will hear that she is mentally incompetent just like the punk in Missouri which begs the question, what happened to “robust vetting?”

Aren’t we weeding out the mentally impaired?  I know the answer—we are not blocking the admission of migrants who need mental health treatment.

This story reminds me of the 2016 story  at RRW about a Somali woman attacking a white woman in her own yard with a flag pole.  I think that Somali refugee woman is still on the loose.

Increasing Numbers of Migrants from Africa/Asia Trying to Reach US

That is what Judicial Watch is reporting.  Thanks to reader Cathy for the tip.

This is an update of news I shared at RRW last month, here.

African migrants in Mexico demonstrate. Demand Mexico let them head to the US border. https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2019-09-21/african-migrants-stuck-in-southern-mexico-their-american-dream-on-hold

MEXICO REPORTS 250% SPIKE IN AFRICANS TRYING TO ENTER U.S. THROUGH BORDER

Mexico has seen an astounding 250% increase in Africans trying to enter the United States through the southern border, according to the latest figures released by the Mexican government’s immigration agency, known as Unidad de Política Migratoria. The stats include the first eight months of 2019 and reveal that, during the same period last year, 1,507 Africans were apprehended in the country compared to 5,286 this year. During the same period 4,783 migrants from India and Bangladesh were also detained in Mexico, according to the data made public this month.

The information is alarming considering Africa and Bangladesh are hotbeds of terrorism and the fact that all the migrants are heading north into the United States. “These migrants, although less in numbers compared to migrants from Central America, increased significantly in the country,” a Mexican newspaper article states, confirming that “their principle objective is not to stay in Mexican territory but rather cross the border towards the United States.” The story also reveals that a growing number of Cubans, Haitians and south Americans, mainly from Brazil and Colombia, have also been apprehended by Mexican authorities trying to make their way to the U.S. border.

The spike in Africans is worrisome considering the State Department has determined that Africa is a major hub of Islamic terrorism, including al-Shabaab in the eastern part of the country and Boko Haram and ISIS in the west. Bangladesh is also a national security concern because the south Asian Islamic country is well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). Earlier this year a congressional probe revealed that migrants from terrorist nations, especially Bangladesh, are trying to enter the United States through Mexico at record rates.

Texas alone saw a whopping 300% increase in Bangladeshi nationals attempting to sneak into the country, according to the federal investigation outlined in a lengthy report.

I’m glad to see JW getting more involved in immigration issues. They may eventually get more information out of our government on these issues through their expertise with the Freedom of Information Act.

Who is encouraging this movement of Africans to Mexico and on to the US Border?

In 2011 I speculated it was NGOs and suggested a Congressional investigation was desperately needed.  Of course, for some reason, no one is interested in answering that question.

Maine: Four ‘new Americans’ Arrested in Case Involving Injured Naked Man

Ah, the joys of diversity come to small town New England.

Thanks to reader Steven for sending this latest crime news from Maine.

Apparently drugs are involved (see yesterday’s post) and a whole lot more.  Looks like a planned mafia-style hit!

From the Times Record:

Naked man flees captors in Casco who forced him into car trunk, shot him

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office responded early Monday to reports of shots fired and a naked man running down a road in Casco.

Deputies ultimately arrested four men and charged them with trafficking in scheduled drugs. Additional charges are likely as the investigation continues.

The four men arrested are: Ajoung M. Malual, 22, of Westbrook; Mahdi B. Ali, 23, of Boston; Noh Y. Okubazghi, 20, of Boston; and Samson S. Samson, 22, of Minneapolis.

Deputies responded to the 300 block of Tenney Hill Road at 1:30 a.m. Monday after receiving reports of gunshots fired, and then of a man running down the road naked, according to a news release.

They located the naked man, who had been shot and injured. He told police he had been taken at gunpoint from his home in Naples, put into the trunk of a car, and driven to a rural area in Casco and told to strip naked.

He told the deputies that he feared for his life and began running through the woods while shots were fired at him.

[….]

The man who was shot is 39 years old but was not identified by law enforcement. He was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and treated for gunshot wounds. He was in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries, but Capt. Donald Goulet of the sheriff’s office declined to talk about the injuries.

Deputies later stopped a vehicle in Windham that matched the victim’s description of the car. The four men inside were detained and later arrested on drug trafficking charges after deputies searched them and the car. Goulet would not say what was found during the search.

The four men arrested are: Ajoung M. Malual, 22, of Westbrook; Mahdi B. Ali, 23, of Boston; Noh Y. Okubazghi, 20, of Boston; and Samson S. Samson, 22, of Minneapolis.

As usual, no mention is made of the immigration status of the four Africans.
