Rather have diaspora Somalis focus on business instead of politics. You get hated more quickly once you become a politically active minority.

Somalis are already hated. It’s too late for that. Might as well be hated in power

How come Scandinavian Somalis haven't produced major political figures yet? Somalis are like 0.75% to 1% of their entire countries' population. Way more than in the US in terms of %.

Looks like Minnesota and Washington State Somalis are more politically active than other diasporas?

Wasn’t there some Puntland women elected in Sweden?

Might be a cultural thing, America/Canada are far more inclusive than Europe, so people tend to integrate faster there and participate in local politics.

Scandinavian countries are filled with newcomers from Somalia. Those Somalis who do tahriib end up there. I believe that most of ones who came in 1991 ended up in other countries like the United Kingdom.

I don't have stats, but that's what I suspect.
