^^ Same reason as many other countries- a sense of moral obligation, pressure from other countries and/or organizations.

 

The friction seem only to grow, unfortunately. The anti-immigrant rethorics and especially anti-muslim rethorics that is circulating newspaper/blogs/facebook comment sections is worrying. I am not surprised though, It just confirms what many of us already knew. It makes many reconsider staying here for the long term.

 

Moonlight: Her tweets came about after a swedish (non-native) journalist critized Norway for racism- reffering to anti-immigrant political rethorics and what he feels is treatment of immigrants as animals by the government. I don't know if you speak Norwegian, but thanks to these two, and another swedish-turkish comedian, racism is now a heated national debate. Even Somali-Norwegian politicians are debating each other. Some of them are unfortunately digressing from the initial point of the debate-the racism to accusing the other of practising tribalism or being a self apppointed spokesman for the somali community. Ceeb! I shook my head in shame after reading this and It shall be interesting to see how things turn out.

It's not her country hence the racism.[/quote

 

True. But for many it is home. It's sad to see them being out of place and feeling as if they dont belong neither here or at their motherland.

Why do countries like Norway, with no colonial history outside Europe, allow people to seek refuge from across the world? It will only lead to further friction within their country.

and why did the Canadians with no colonial history allowed you to seek refuge in their country??

 

hypocrisy!!!

They can learn Somali language and culture and thus, over a period of months, integrate into their mother country. But they will never fit in no matter how long they stay in the white skins lands.

The difference is that Canada has been since it's inception, a multiracial nation of immigrants. I had friends in Alberta who were descendants of Black Nova Scotians/African-americans and 19th century Chinese/Japanese immigrants.

 

Besides, Somalis have only been milking the Somali Affair for all that it's worth. #ShidaneArone #HeDiedForOurSins
