I work with a Somali friend in Willmar, MN. He lives in Benson, MN which is where he has encountered his problems with racism. Being a smaller community most people are very nice to him but when they are not they are REALLY not.

The usual things he deals with are the sneering word said in passing or the “sand ni**er” muttered under the breath near him. He has had toilet paper thrown at him in the stalls of men’s rooms there. There is a Family Dollar store in Benson where one particular employee mutters things when he walks by, and follows him around the store doing so and making it obvious he thinks he is stealing.
