“He did whatever he can say. My heligion, my color. Even he tell me ‘you not belong to here,’” said Mohamad.
Allow me translate: Mohamad is saying that his neighbor mocked his religion and skin color, adding that he does not belong in this country.
Mohamad, a Somali immigrant, says he’s lived in Fargo since 1998. He apparently hasn’t picked up much English in the 18 years he’s lived in the United States, but why should anyone have to assimilate? Almost 2 decades in this country and he can’t pronounce “religion” or even form a basic simple sentence in English? That’s bad.
