Minnesota Voices: Ibrahim Ayeh


One thought on “Minnesota Voices: Ibrahim Ayeh

  1. When I look at the current level of violence in Somalia, I find it curious that the interviewer leads with the question of whether gang activity by Minnesota Somali youth is because they have become “Americanized.” There seems to be much more violence in Somalia than American. Also, I resent the implication by the interviewer that the gang-glorifying, hip-hop urban culture as “American Culture”, implying that a deviant subculture is the dominant culture in the country. It’s certainly not what defines us. If the interviewer believes that, then he should get out of the inner city more, into other productive, functioning areas of the country.
