I saw some article comparing somalis in Minnesota and Somalis in Sweden in 2008 ! Apparently, in 2008, only 20% of somalis residing in Sweden worked and only 64 small-businesses were run by somalis..In Minnesota 51% worked (it's not a great number from an US point of view, but compared to Sweden it's awesome) and 800 small-business were run by somalis.
So, Somalis aren't successful in Minnesota or USA compared to many other ethnicities (Indians, Nigerians, Koreans..) but they are the most successful somalis in the world.The US can be pretty proud about it.

Close I left SC and KY and moved to MN because they were way too southern.

Complete b.s. as they are not moving away in droves. 1 in 3 Somalis live in Minnesota with the majority living in Minneapolis. Many who do leave end up coming back because of the strong Somail community in the Twin Cities.

[LEFT]MINNEAPOLIS Nearly one in three people with Somali ancestry in the United States now live in the Minnesota, which has the largest concentration in the country, according to government data released Tuesday.
The latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey found about 25,000 of the 85,700 Somalis in the U.S. live in Minnesota. Ohio, Washington and California also had large populations of Somalis, but the survey data found no more than 10,500 of them in any state except Minnesota.
There, the Somali population is growing, Minnesota State Demographer Tom Gillaspy said. The 2000 Census pegged it at 11,164.
The proof is on the streets of the Twin Cities, said Hashi Shafi of the Somali Action Alliance in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis Public Schools reported 1,345 of the district's students spoke Somali at home during the 2008-2009 school year, and Shafi said the number is growing every year.

But there have been worrying signs about the second generation, with reports out of Minnesota of Somali gangs running interstate prostitution rings and investigations of young men going to fight with al-Shabab, which seeks to establish an Islamic state in Somalia.
Ahmed Sahid, president of Somali Family Services of San Diego, said the local population there was swelling with a "second migration" driven by Somalis leaving cold parts of the United States.
The government estimates there are 5,000 Somalis in the San Diego area, but Sahid said estimates are often wrong, and he thought there were 15,000 to 20,000.

Minneapolis is one of the nations most well together large metropolitan areas for many reasons, this is another. Omaha has had a large influx of African immigrants too..

Cheers to Minneapolis!
