Seriously, anyone not see this as the future for Minneapolis?
Seriously, no. I do not see this as the future of Minneapolis.
Turn off the computer and get outside more - it will do you some good.
Why not simply leave Sweden? I wonder how the Swedes would be treated if they moved to the homeland of these immigrants. I'm generally quite liberal, but this same old routine is really getting old. You have a clean, civilized, generous country willing to take you in, and then you say thank you but asking for More and more.
As a South Minneapolis resident, I'm in Cedar Riverside almost everyday. Yes, lots of good immigrant people. My, Son is in school with many East Afiricans. Unfortunately, Minneapolis has followed, the same pattern as Paris & Sweden, with the concentration of immigrants. This as we can see, leeds to isolation and frustration.
I think that here they likely won't be as isolated but rather will have opportunity to shape the culture to meet their needs. I'm not saying that I (or you) will be happy with it, but I suspect that these new immigrant groups won't need to riot to break out of their concentration centers or alleviate frustration as you describe. Running for (and winning) city council seats and shaping the city to meet their needs is a more likely outcome. And God bless them if they do - it is the American way after all.
This is the fruit of Diversity in action.
BTW - This version of this article is incomplete.
Multiculturalism at work. Sweden did not appreciate their own culture. Now they are reaping the consequences.
I didn't think it was possible to be poor in the liberal Mecca of Sweden.....???
