Well, it’s been a quiet week in Minneapolis, Minnesota, my hometown, out there on the edge of the prairie, as the Somali Outlaws sex trafficking gang exchanged eye-for-an-eye shootings with the untouchables of the Madhiban With Attitude ritual circumcision-performing caste.

With fearless Somalis much in the news, from the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

East African community reeling from weekend violence, demands solutions

Several Somali gangs are locked in a bitter dispute.
By Libor Jany Star Tribune MARCH 4, 2019 — 8:52PM

After the latest spasm of gang violence, Minneapolis’ Somali residents and business owners on Monday stepped up their calls for help from City Hall and police headquarters to help curb the senseless shootings that they say too often go overlooked.

On Friday alone, five men of Somali descent were shot in separate attacks, one fatally.

Police and community members pinned the blame for the bloodshed on an ongoing feud between Cedar-Riverside neighborhood gangs like 1627 and Madhiban With Attitude (MWA) and their rivals, the Somali Outlaws, whose territory includes the area around Karmel Mall.

Friday’s shootings were a repeat of a familiar pattern: a shooting on one gang’s turf is usually followed hours, if not minutes later by an “eye-for-an-eye” response so as not to appear weak, community members say. Two shootings last month are also blamed on the conflict.

As with other recent shootings, police immediately stepped up patrols in both neighborhoods to prevent further retaliation. But some in the community wondered whether they could be doing more.

Russom Solomon, owner of the Red Sea Bar and Restaurant, said that responsibility for curbing the violence falls equally on police and the community, but he questioned why the two Somali-American officers recently assigned to the Cedar-Riverside beat aren’t working nights, when many of the shootings occur.

“The problem we’re dealing with is that they work during the day and not during the night, so they’ve just had little effect,” said Solomon, who also chairs the West Bank Community Coalition’s safety committee. “The perception of safety is not good, people don’t feel that safe — they’re just poisoning the whole neighborhood now.”

The solution is obviously to hire the gangbangers as cops. Hey, it worked in A Clockwork Orange, didn’t it? Too bad about the yoga instructor lady getting shot by the jumpy, trigger-happy Somali cop, but you can’t make a diverse omelet without smashing a few white eggs.

In response to the recent violence, First Precinct inspector Eddie Frizell said … “Cedar-Riverside is another example of collaboration,” he said. “I’ve had one-on-one conversations with the mothers and elders, and I’m getting a lesson in cultural hierarchy.” …

The latest shooting in the feud happened Friday night, when police say several members of the Somali Outlaws were shot, possibly for infringing on enemy territory. …

Many of the recent shootings have been carried out by 1627, a newer street crew that takes its name from one of the high-rises that juts above the ethnically diverse neighborhood of cafes, bars and furniture stores.

… “I have repeatedly heard from members of the Somali community that more beat officers, especially Somali beat officers, would be helpful,” Frey said. “I believe expanding on that is the right move.” …

Some residents shied away from talking about the gang violence because they worry that, much like with the upcoming murder trial of fired Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor for the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond and the recent high-profile prosecutions of young east African men bent on joining extremist groups in the Middle East and Africa, the Somali community will ultimately be blamed for the bad actions of a few.

Because clan wars are not representative of Somali culture.

Whoever heard of Somalis in Somalia shooting each other?

Frizell said his officers have been trying to educate community elders frustrated by the nuances of “the judicial system,” and explain why someone arrested for a violent crime could later be released to “wreak havoc on the streets.”

… For Abdullahi Farah, a local youth outreach worker, the problem starts at home, where parents struggle to connect with their American-born or raised children who find themselves without support after aging out of area youth programs.

“In reality the community is not really engaging the youth in a proactive way,” he said. “They react when there’s violence, but when there isn’t violence they’re not being proactive.”

Clearly, the solution is to hire more Somali youth outreach workers who know the word “proactive.”

In case you are wondering about the Madhiban With Attitude gang, from Wikipedia:

Madhiban

The Madhiban (Somali: Madhibaan), also known as Midgan, Midgaan, Mitjan, Muse Dheri or Gaboye, are an artisanal caste among Somali people. They have been endogamous, and their traditional hereditary occupation has been as hunters and circumcision performers.

They are also referred to as Madhibe, an appellation which is sometimes used pejoratively. The Madhiban have been one of the low status castes among the Somalis, along with Tumal and others.

… This caste is distinct from the Tumal and Yibir outcast communities because each is accused of things different from each other in Somali society.

The Madhiban were historically hunters, but now engage in occupations like leather work (shoemaking). They also are the traditional circumcision performers for both males, and females in the Somali society. These professions have traditionally been considered dirty, and the Madhiban have been a part of the sab or lower castes as opposed to the aji or upper castes.

According to Lee Gunderson, Dennis Murphy Odo and Reginald D’Silva, the Midgan have traditionally been treated as a low caste, scorned and reviled. A Midgan-Madiban has been deemed as polluting and therefore avoided as a taboo in the Somali society.

In 1890 Élisée Reclus, in his extensive work “The Earth and its Inhabitants: AFRICA” (Vol. IV, South and East Africa) described the Madhiban (Midgan) as follows: In still greater contempt are held the Midgans, called also Rami, that is to say “Archers,” who are universally regarded as the lowest of the low. They worship trees and snakes, and eat all the prohibited food, such as fish, fowl, eggs, hares, and gazelles. They are also daring hunters, fearlessly attacking the lion and the elephant, whom they pierce with their poisoned arrows. Like the Yebirs, the Midgans also practise medicine, and have the reputation of being extremely clever charlatans. According to the Somali legends, the lower castes are the issue of crossings between Abyssinian women and maleficent genii, while the Midgans are of still more degraded origin, their ancestors having been the slaves of these Abyssinian women.

Why aren’t Minneapolis police sensitive to such basic cultural awareness? Read a book, cops!

Under the 1951 UN convention, several legal proceedings have ruled that Midgan as a low caste in Somalia are “akin to Dalits or the untouchables in India”.

In America
There are a few gangs, notably in Minneapolis, which call themselves the ‘Madhiban with Attitude’.

Love the use of the term “elders’ because we learned from the Covington kids that you should always respect the tribal “elders.” Yes, they need more beat cops, as in , beat their asses until they behave and how about some Midnight Basketball, that always seems to calm the savage breast. And seriously, these people have a long history of being the offspring of slaves in America and living under Jim Crow laws. What? Sorry, I thought all of this stemmed from ancestral slavery.

    , @Feryl
    Hmong used to be more of a light-weight punching bag (local reference: you remember the KQ morning show getting heat for it's mockery of the Hmong back in the 90's?). But Somalis (and other Muslims) have really taken the cake since 9/11 made people much more cognizant of what a basketcase the MENA region is.

    My sense is that normie Minnesotans understand that we get the worst quality of diversity precisely because we are so good....Too good, it turns out, to be left alone. Soros et al won't get their jollies off by dumping diversity garbage onto NYC, or Alabama, or New Mexico, because those regions have enough diversity already. Besides, those regions are cranky enough to begin with. The globalists really want to rub the Midwest and New England in more "diversity", because these regions had a good thing going for too long (at some point over the last couple years, the MSM became aware of Wikipedia's racial diversity listings for the US, so they could then have empirical data to back up their bitching about areas that are too mysteriously white).

    And it's not just a Scandie thing, either; Ohio (much more Scots-Irish than Minnesota) is getting lots of ME and African bull-shit, too. It's as if there's a conscious effort to have the Southwest be Mexican inflected, the Southeast American black inflected, the Northeast and Northwest inflected by yuppie Asians and sub-continentals, and the Midwest will get stuck with the African and Middle Eastern bullshit that nobody else wants.

    Sun-belters complain about "illegal mexicans", but for us Rust-Belters, we're much more concerned about Mosques rising up from the landscape. Trust me, I'd much rather that we import Tijuana than the squabbling of desert tribes battling out ethnic conflicts stretching back for Millennia.

    10 years ago, 6 deer hunters slain in woods of western Wisconsin

    Vang claimed that he was belittled and that hunters used anti-Hmong slurs against him after Willers and eventually other members of the hunting party confronted him for using a deer stand and being on the property. Vang, a California National Guard member for six years who earned a sharpshooter rating during U.S. Army basic training in 1989, said a shot was fired at him first, although evidence and testimony refute that claim.

    I thought that the Somalis that the US imported were more educated and more intelligent than the Somali average. Am I wrong about this?
    , @Mr. Hack
    Back in the 1980's it wasn't unusual for the Hmongs and the Laotians to get into it after a wedding or a large party on the East side of town. That is, until the Samoans would show up and take care of business. Someday, they'll make a movie about all of this going down in Minneapolis called 'The Streets of Minneapolis'. 'Back in the day', It used to be that only criminally aspiring white boys would roam the streets of the Twin Cities, instigating crime and causing mayhem. Gangs like the Baldies*, Greasers, Animals and Rats would patrol the streets of Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park and Excelsior. I don't know if Sailor is old enough to remember these white youth groups or not? Beer seemed to be the intoxicant of choice back then, not mescaline laced milk as served at the 'Moloko' bar, eh 'tovarishch'?

    *The Baldies were a South Minneapolis, Minnesota street gang that existed from 1955 to 1975, organized by the late Deuce Casper. In Minneapolis, over 1000 gang members engaged in violence, crime, and fear mongering. Some members graduated to politics like Tommy "The Bomber" Ogdahl, and others went on to become members of organized crime like Perry "The Scholar" Millik. The Baldies were identified by their closely cropped hair and Ivy League, or preppy style, in contrast to their "Greaser" rivals, the Animals, who wore slicked back hair and leather jackets.

    There already is one:


    The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is a national organization dedicated to training and educating U. S. citizens in responsible uses of firearms and airguns through gun safety training, marksmanship training and competitions. The CMP is a federally chartered 501(c)(3) corporation that places its highest priority on serving youth through gun safety and marksmanship activities that encourage personal growth and build life skills. Links on this page will lead you to more detailed information about the CMP and its programs.
    Statutory mission. The federal law enacted in 1996 (Title 36 U. S. Code, 40701-40733) that created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and Firearms Safety, Inc. (CPRPFS, the formal legal name of the CMP) mandates these key “functions for the corporation:

    To instruct citizens of the United States in marksmanship;
    To promote practice and safety in the use of firearms;
    To conduct competitions in the use of firearms and to award trophies, prizes, badges, and other insignia to competitors.

    The law specifically states: In carrying out the Civilian Marksmanship Program, the corporation shall give priority to activities that benefit firearms safety, training, and competition for youth and that reach as many youth participants as possible.

    The Red Sea restaurant has been there for a long time. I remember it from the late 80's/early 90's when there NO Somalis in Mpls/St. Paul. At that time I remember it being an Ethiopian run place but you could be right about him being Eritrean. Back then I don't believe Eritrea was a country. The West Bank area used to be a halcyon land of music bars where college kids & working class drunks used to freely mingle & cavort. Fun place back in the day, late 80's early 90's.

    It was never that nice. My first time in their bus station, 1981 I think, I was propositioned by a teenage Indian girl. Probably for pay, but I didn't pursue it. Five years later, when I arrived to stay, I swear I saw the same girl in the same station doing the same with someone else.

    The worst wave of blacks around 1991 didn't come from Mogadishu, Asmara, Addis Ababa or Monrovia. They came from Chicago, Gary, and other cities in states beating Minnesota to welfare reform. They turned the city into "Murderapolis", not the Africans. Yet.

    I wonder if the "charity" industry deliberately chose cities that were 10-15% black. Any fewer, and the Africans stick out. Any more, and the Africans will refuse. (Atlanta was a big, and bad, exception.)

    Vang claimed that he was belittled and that hunters used anti-Hmong slurs against him after Willers and eventually other members of the hunting party confronted him for using a deer stand and being on the property.

    Speaking about malls and retail, there has been a spate of bankruptcies of old mainline stores like Payless and Sears. And many malls seem to be dying.

    Most explanations center around Amazon and e-commerce. And I agree somewhat. But what effect has the demographic transformation of the USA had on these malls? I know of one mall in KC that was killed in the 1990s when the city’s black population expanded into its area. Security concerns got so bad they had to install guard booths in the parking lot to monitor the parked cars. Of course once this happened, the end was near.

    We have a very upscale shopping area in KC called the Plaza that is being threatened by large numbers of black youth who bumrush the place on certain summer evenings. The jury is still out as to whether it will survive.

    But I am thinking that Amazon and other online commerce did not kill retail by themselves. The public was fed up with going to places that used to be safe for family, but no longer are. E-commerce just gave people an easy way to avoid such crowds.

    Back in the 1980’s it wasn’t unusual for the Hmongs and the Laotians to get into it after a wedding or a large party on the East side of town. That is, until the Samoans would show up and take care of business. Someday, they’ll make a movie about all of this going down in Minneapolis called ‘The Streets of Minneapolis’. ‘Back in the day’, It used to be that only criminally aspiring white boys would roam the streets of the Twin Cities, instigating crime and causing mayhem. Gangs like the Baldies*, Greasers, Animals and Rats would patrol the streets of Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park and Excelsior. I don’t know if Sailor is old enough to remember these white youth groups or not?

    *The Baldies were a South Minneapolis, Minnesota street gang that existed from 1955 to 1975, organized by the late Deuce Casper. In Minneapolis, over 1000 gang members engaged in violence, crime, and fear mongering. Some members graduated to politics like Tommy “The Bomber” Ogdahl, and others went on to become members of organized crime like Perry “The Scholar” Millik. The Baldies were identified by their closely cropped hair and Ivy League, or preppy style, in contrast to their “Greaser” rivals, the Animals, who wore slicked back hair and leather jackets.

    Thank you for proving that whites--in recent history (the fact that whites formed Gangs of New York in the 19th century seems to insult the troglodytes--apparently they think that whites have somehow evolved since then and would never do such evil things again), formed gangs just as violent and vicious and criminal and irrational as non-white gangs.

    It just insults my intelligence to read these fools go on about gangs as if whites were above them. And then they complain that historical education has gone down. Look to thyself, troglodyte.

  83. Why does this article continually refer to older Somalians as “elders”? Native-American activist Nathan Phillips was routinely called an “elder” last year at age 64. It is like yoga leaders who appropriate the title “His Holiness”.

    Back in the 1980's it wasn't unusual for the Hmongs and the Laotians to get into it after a wedding or a large party on the East side of town. That is, until the Samoans would show up and take care of business. Someday, they'll make a movie about all of this going down in Minneapolis called 'The Streets of Minneapolis'. 'Back in the day', It used to be that only criminally aspiring white boys would roam the streets of the Twin Cities, instigating crime and causing mayhem. Gangs like the Baldies*, Greasers, Animals and Rats would patrol the streets of Minneapolis, Brooklyn Park and Excelsior.

    *The Baldies were a South Minneapolis, Minnesota street gang that existed from 1955 to 1975, organized by the late Deuce Casper. In Minneapolis, over 1000 gang members engaged in violence, crime, and fear mongering. Some members graduated to politics like Tommy "The Bomber" Ogdahl, and others went on to become members of organized crime like Perry "The Scholar" Millik. The Baldies were identified by their closely cropped hair and Ivy League, or preppy style, in contrast to their "Greaser" rivals, the Animals, who wore slicked back hair and leather jackets.

    What? The “East African community?” I thought it was “a Minnesota man” this and “a Minneapolis man” that – when did The Man decide to recognise they are Africans again?

    And, say, I can think if solution to the demands, but it involves that loony dream I had of a large group of professional people whose sole purpose is to keep undesirable people out of a nation, thus protecting those within from external threats. Everything would be so different if the F.U.S.A. had the largest, most powerful group like that in all the world. Alas….

    It was just as scruffy then as it is now. But at least it was American, in a weird way. Bob Dylan, Spider John Koerner, and other guys would sit around trading licks. There was once a coffeehouse called the Ten O’Clock Scholar. The hard-left basement bookstore is still there.

    The old cafe at the actual intersection of Cedar and Riverside used to give change in half-dollar coins and two-dollar bills. I would go there just for that.

    The strangest thing, but not really strange if you think about it, was the Free Mumia protest march. About thirty kids, all white except for one Asian girl (probably dating or adopted by white people), were trying to whip up sympathy for the thug. The Africans just ignored them.

    The Africans were right.

In 60 years or so. How ineffably stupid. Fine, you don’t like gangs in your neighborhood. Naturally. Who would? But suggesting that these gangs are gangs only for the reason that they are black is infinitely stupid. I mean it. You sit there and trumpet your big IQs and then foist that puerile claptrap?

    Sorry. Poverty and group cohesion cause gangs. Period. You are so stupid you think you’re smart.

    On the upside, yhey could be the basis for some recycled Yiddish humor, e.g., Did you hear about the Madhiban who sewed the clippings from his clients into a wallet? When you rub it, it turns into a suitcase.

    And not one peep about how Minnneapolis was a really nice city until these human dregs got dumped there.

    It was never that nice. My first time in their bus station, 1981 I think, I was propositioned by a teenage Indian girl. Probably for pay, but I didn’t pursue it. Five years later, when I arrived to stay, I swear I saw the same girl in the same station doing the same with someone else.

    The worst wave of blacks around 1991 didn’t come from Mogadishu, Asmara, Addis Ababa or Monrovia. They came from Chicago, Gary, and other cities in states beating Minnesota to welfare reform. They turned the city into “Murderapolis”, not the Africans. Yet.

    I wonder if the “charity” industry deliberately chose cities that were 10-15% black. Any fewer, and the Africans stick out. Any more, and the Africans will refuse. (Atlanta was a big, and bad, exception.)

    Also, the main Somali concentrations are, or are next to, capitals– Minneapolis, Nashville, Columbus, Boston, Atlanta, Toronto. CC and LSS again?

    Also, 'business owners" connotation in reality means that DC imbroglio over Omar's Capitol Offense conveniently trickled down to Solomon The Shopkeeper, who just happened to be
    neither Eritrean, nor Ethiopian, which is probably the main reason St. Paul's finest and the media decided that it was time to acknowledge the existence of Mogadishupalooza to the outside world.

    At this point, all that's missing is Mogadishu Liberty Union issuing an ultimatum to Sol requiring him to put some Somali brothers on that Wall of Fame.

    Cut the B.S., who ever heard of a Jew named Solomon? Especially one who owns a business named after the *squints* Red Sea? What is the likelihood of any Jew owning a business in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District currently represented by Rep. Illhan Omar huh? Don’t you know she’s an anti-semite? If he were Jewish he’d have to be hiding out like Anne Frank.

    By the way, here is the public housing building the 1627 gang is named after: I think you can understand now why they are driven to kill each other.

  106. The Madhiban were historically hunters, but now engage in occupations like leather work (shoemaking). They also are the traditional circumcision performers for both males, and females in the Somali society. These professions have traditionally been considered dirty, and the Madhiban have been a part of the sab or lower castes as opposed to the aji or upper castes.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is why I keep coming back; I learn so much here, especially useful, hard to find information. I’ve been trying to figure out where to find someone to remove the clitoris and vaginal lips of a certain woman and if I like it, a whole group of women (names aren’t important, I want it to be a surprise!). Individual doctors I’ve contacted have been less than helpful (ugh, white men). Now I have an inside to a whole subculture of people who specialize in this and they make shoes as well (is there anything these people can’t do?). They’re also relatively nearby. I can’t believe how lucky I am to live in this time and place.

    Five towelheads shot and only one kill?? We need a Federal marksmanship program!

    There already is one:

    The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is a national organization dedicated to training and educating U. S. citizens in responsible uses of firearms and airguns through gun safety training, marksmanship training and competitions. The CMP is a federally chartered 501(c)(3) corporation that places its highest priority on serving youth through gun safety and marksmanship activities that encourage personal growth and build life skills. Links on this page will lead you to more detailed information about the CMP and its programs.
    Statutory mission. The federal law enacted in 1996 (Title 36 U. S. Code, 40701-40733) that created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and Firearms Safety, Inc. (CPRPFS, the formal legal name of the CMP) mandates these key “functions for the corporation:

    To instruct citizens of the United States in marksmanship;
    To promote practice and safety in the use of firearms;
    To conduct competitions in the use of firearms and to award trophies, prizes, badges, and other insignia to competitors.

    The law specifically states: In carrying out the Civilian Marksmanship Program, the corporation shall give priority to activities that benefit firearms safety, training, and competition for youth and that reach as many youth participants as possible.
