My Wife reminded of something I had forgotten, and I don’t know how to edit a post on medium. There was what I think was a great community compromise offered a few years ago. A Summer Community festival which would be a merger of the Somali Culture, and the Minnesota Culture. A chance to showcase both cultures and communities together, to join together in a common goal. It was rejected by both sides. The Somali Community stated it was an underhanded and racist attempt to destroy their culture, they would only agree to that if it was the Somali Culture Only. The White Community in St Cloud refused because if it had to be Somali only then they were not going to “give up” any more of “their” community. And on and on and on and on and on it goes. Neither side conceding anything.
