A cafeteria fight at Minneapolis South High School escalated into a melee involving hundreds of students Thursday, spurred by what parents and students said are growing racial tensions between Somali-American students and others.
Police said that 200 to 300 students shoved, kicked and threw bottles at one other and that extra Minneapolis police officers were called in to break up the fighting. Three students and one staff member were taken to a hospital for medical treatment, and police said rioting and disorderly conduct charges could be filed. (Star Tribune)
For years, Muslim Brotherhood groups and Islamic supremacists have worked feverishly to co-opt the race narrative from civil rights groups here in America. Seeing the success of "white guilt" pushback, Muslim groups have long mythologized imaginary "islamophobia" as "racist" despite the fact that Islam is not a race.
Further, there is no ideology more racist than Islam. Black in Arabic means slave, and many Muslim countries still traffic in black slavery.
So it was a shock to the system when a violent riot at Minnesota high school between aggressive Muslim students and African American students spun out of control. We see this increasingly with refugee settlement programs. Whole Muslim communities from jihad-hot countries are being imported into small to mid-sized American towns and cities, having deleterious effects on host communities.
[One student] said the fights were over pride. ‘I know it’s a pride thing between Muslims and black people,’ she said. ‘They want their pride back for something. I don’t know.’ She also said ‘boys were hitting girls’ and that some people were lying on the floor, with their hands over their heads, in surrender.… The fight, students say, was the result of long-simmering tensions between the 8 percent of students who are Somali Americans and the 20 percent who are African Americans.” (Minn Post)
Muslim students vs Black students; who's the racist? These escalating episodes show the absurdity of Muslim supremacist narrative, but do not think for one second that the Hamas-goons at CAIR will cede this lie. Hamas-CAIR is calling on its operatives at the DoE and the DoJ to intervene to "resolve racial issues" at the school.
It is in fact religious tensions -- as always -- Islamic. Here is the CAIR grievance-mongering bullying strategy:

CAIR-MN Seeks Mediation, Training to Resolve Racial Issues at School
(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 2/18/13) The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) today called on Minneapolis South High School to utilize mediation and multi-cultural competency training to help remedy race-related issues at the school after a brawl reportedly between Somali and African-American students erupted at the school on February 14, 2013.

In a February 15 letter, CAIR-MN asked South High School administrators to provide the peer mediation and multi-cultural competency trainings to create a safe community for learning and growing.
"Racial and religious tensions in the community often manifest in schools and need to be taken very seriously," said CAIR-MN Executive Director Lori Saroya. "All students must have a safe learning environment."

Saroya said CAIR-MN is launching a new program that will include community dialogues on shared civil rights experiences among minority communities in Minnesota.
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
