The day after George Floyd died, another video also went viral.

It showed a group of Black men in an office gym in Minneapolis’ Uptown confronted by a white man, who asked if they worked in the building. They said they did. When he asked at which office, they said they didn’t need to answer. He threatened to call 911 but instead called building management and said there’s a “bunch of people who don’t appear to be part of” the building.

A short time later, Abdi Hassan and Salman Elmi posted a 45-second video clip of the encounter on Instagram, calling it out as racial profiling. With viral speed, they and the other man in the video, Tom Austin, were swept into the roiling national conversation on racial bias, just as a confrontation between a dog walker and bird watcher in New York’s Central Park also caught on video had been in the news.

But that conversation was overtaken by the protests and riots over Floyd’s killing at the hands of Minneapolis police. Out of the direct spotlight since late May, the fates of Hassan, Elmi and Austin went in different directions.

Hassan and Elmi just celebrated the third anniversary of Top Figure, an e-commerce and marketing company they co-founded. They’ve received thousands of supportive messages, some new business connections and offers to consult on diversity matters. “It goes to show there’s hope,” Elmi said.

Austin’s business consulting firm, F2 Group, lost its lease, received a deluge of angry messages, and shut down. “It was an absolute destruction,” he said.

‘Really messed-up moment’

The original Instagram video of the gym meeting in the MoZaic East office building collected more than 80,000 reactions and was widely shared on Twitter and Facebook. Dozens of media outlets wrote about it.

Hassan and Elmi said they decided to share the “really messed-up moment” to show some of the challenges they face as Somali American and Black entrepreneurs.

Normally we don’t speak out about encounters of racial profiling and age discrimination that we face day to day in our lives as young black entrepreneurs. Although today May 26th 2020 7:51pm we encountered a situation where a man entered the facility, a shared private gym that we utilize in our @wework @mozaic_east office located in uptown Minnesota. Granted we’ve been in this office space and have rented and grown our business for the past 1 year and half here. As we were working out this man approached and immediately asked us who we were and if “WE BELONG” in this building. Granted in order to enter the building you NEED a key card to enter EVERY part of the building which EACH of our team members individually have. We all pay rent here and this man demanded that we show him our key cards or he will call the cops on us. We are sick and tired of tolerating this type of behavior on a day to day basis and we feel that we had to bring light onto this situation.

“Some people think, especially in the business world, that people will be professional,” Hassan said. “But we’re like, ‘Hey, this happens all of the time. Let’s just shed some light on the situation.’ ”

This particular incident, Elmi added, was especially overt. “It’s not usually so blatant out in the open, but it’s like side-eye that you’re not supposed to be in spaces like this,” he said.

The video was a wake-up call for Molly Hanten, a co-founder of Alchemy 365, a small chain of fitness studios unaffiliated with the gym where the confrontation took place. She had seen Hassan and Elmi around the WeWork co-working space in that building where she also worked.

Disturbed by the clip, she sent them a message saying she was sorry they were made to feel so uncomfortable.

“I’ve used that gym. … I’ve probably passed the man who said that [to them],” Hanten said. “To me, it was a really big, close-to-home white privilege moment. … I don’t have to think twice about how someone is going to treat me.”

She told Hassan and Elmi she had started discussions within her own company about how to make its gyms more diverse and inclusive. The two men joined a committee to help Alchemy build new partnerships and diversify its client base. “They’ve been super helpful,” she said. “I’m appreciative we’ve crossed paths regardless of the unfortunate way it happened.”

Hassan and Elmi were working out with three colleagues in the gym when Austin began asking to see their key cards. Property managers had sent a note to tenants reminding them that the gym was to be used only by people who worked in the building.

With that in mind, Austin said he grew suspicious that not all of the men with Hassan and Elmi worked there because he saw one of the men use a key card to let others into the bathroom.

“This is not a racism issue, this is a trespassing issue,” he said. “These guys, rather than addressing the trespassing issue, played the race card.”

Hassan said the three other men who were with him were a contractor and two interns who also worked out of the WeWork office. He added that all five of them had key cards but felt it was wrong for Austin to demand they show them to him.

Austin said he took the memo about the gym as a request to watch for people sneaking into it. “I was doing what the property management asked,” he said.

By the end of the day, after the video started making the rounds on the internet, building owner Ackerberg Group decided to terminate the lease for Austin’s F2.

Stuart Ackerberg, CEO of Ackerberg Group, said the incident was “unbelievably disturbing.” The marketing concept for MoZaic East, and location of a co-working space in it, was around the sharing of ideas and cultures. He added that everyone in the group at the gym that day had the right to use it.

He said he also told Austin that it wasn’t his responsibility to monitor gym use.

Austin said that his company, which provided consulting and research services to private equity firms, received a flood of angry messages after the video went viral. “Thousands of people called my customers, my clients, and harassed them. They called my employees and harassed them,” Austin said.

As a result, the company couldn’t continue, he said. Its seven employees lost their jobs.

Before the May incident, Austin had been in the spotlight as a leader of a group in Minneapolis that contested the renaming of Lake Calhoun to Bde Maka Ska by the city’s Park Board. The group won a court ruling that temporarily delayed the renaming but lost at the state Supreme Court.

Some of Austin’s critics accused him of supporting John Calhoun, the 19th-century U.S. senator and backer of slavery for whom the lake was named. Austin said he wasn’t advocating for Calhoun but thought the new name was difficult to pronounce. He added he thinks the idea of systemic racism is an “absolute joke.”

“You have no idea how many white people who … just don’t want to have anything to do with Blacks because they don’t want to deal with the … of Blacks trying to blame them for white supremacy and racism when there is none,” he said.

Implicit assumptions

Catherine Squires, a communications professor at the University of Minnesota, said enough moments of white people assuming Black people are in the wrong place or breaking the rules have been caught on camera that they’re a genre on social media. She cited another example of a white woman in California who called the police on a group of Black people for using a charcoal grill in a park.

“We’re seeing this over and over again, this pattern of white people feeling completely empowered … to try to discipline Black people,” Squires said.

Jordana Green, a WCCO Radio talk-show host, invited Hassan and Elmi onto her show after seeing the video.

“It was horrific,” she said of the video. “And yet it shone a bright light on what happens every day to minorities in our country.”

The two ended up becoming regular guests on her show for awhile, with the segments evolving into discussions of the challenges of being Black entrepreneurs. They also have offered digital marketing tips to her listeners.

Hassan and Elmi note that their journey so far hasn’t been easy. As young entrepreneurs, ages 23 and 24, they’ve faced rejection and worked extra hard to prove themselves.

“They kind of always assumed we were underqualified and that we couldn’t deliver,” Elmi said. “That’s what pushed us to work three times harder. That’s where we get our grit from.”

They have been heartened by the thousands of encouraging messages they’ve received.

“The overwhelming support we’ve gotten from a lot of different people all across not only the nation, but all across the world, it’s been phenomenal and amazing,” Elmi said.

After the gym incident, the two moved Top Figure to an office building in southeast Minneapolis. The business has grown to 10 employees.

They now use the gym in their apartment building.

Walwal iyo walbaar ayuu Axmed Dheere habeenkii oo dhan sariirta la gadgadoomayey, waxaana uuna iswaydiinayey tabaha iyo xeeladda u furan ee uu yeeli karo haddii barri subax lagu yiraahdo dayuuradaan Hargeysa u socota raac, maalinta xigtana lagula wareejiyo garoonka dayuuradaha diyaaraddii uu ku duqeyn kahaa isla magaaladaas. Ogoow oo waxa uu laynayo waa dadkii loosoo tababarey inuu iyaga cadowga ka difaaco. Waa arin aad iyo aad u kharaar. Waa sidii uu qiyaasayaye, markii uu subixii iska xaadiriyey Xaruntii ciidan ee looga yeerey, waxaa loo sheegey meesha uu u socdo iyo shaqada uu halkaas ka qabanayo labadaba.Go’aankii kharaaraa!!

Axmed ilaa xiligaas ma qaadan wax go’aan ah waxa u uka yeelayo amarka la siiyey, wuxuuna dhex makhuuranaya walaac iyo walbahaar, waqti uu kaga sii fikiro waxa uu yeeli doonana uma harin, laakiin wuxuu meel ku guntadey inuusan marna waxyeello soo gaarsiin dadkiisa..Labadii dayuuradood oo aad u dheereynaya ayaa durba kor marey magaalada, waxeeyna u jiheysteen dhinaca galbeed. Duuliye Axmed Waxeey ishiisu qabatey kumaan shacab ah oo magaalada kasii qaxaya iyo qaar kale oo dadsan geedaha hoostooda.

Islamarkiiba, hoos ayuu u daadajiyey, si uga dhuunto raadaarka ciidanka Farasiiska oo Jabouti fadhiyey oo u uka baqayey iney toogtaan, wuxuuna durba galey xuduudda Jabouti iyadoon cidna dareemin. Badda dusheeda!Durba duuliye Axmed wuxuu arkey isagoo dul heehaabaya badda dusheeda, wuxuuna gudaha usii galey oo uu kusii fogaadey badda, halkaas oo uu ku faarujiyey rasaastii iyo bambaanooyinkii uu sidey. Markii uu muddo badda dul heehaabayey, ayuu nasiib wanaag si lama filaan ula kulmey meel banaan oo xeebta ah oo biyaha baddu ka durkeen habeenkii, halkaas oo uu inta xeeladeysan ugu soo dhawaadey tartiib si nabadgalyo ah ku fariisiyey dayuuraddii xeebta, wuxuuna ka dagey asagoo badqaba. Waqti kooban markii uu ku lugeynayey xeebta ayaa waxaa arkey kaluumeysato reer Jabouti ah, kuwaas oo markii ay arkeen ninkaan qafilan ee duuliyaha ee meesha maraya la yaabey, waxeyna weydiiyeen wuxuu yahey iyo waxa halkan keeney, wuxuuna u sheegey inuu Soomaaliya kasoo goostey oo dayuurad wadey oo xeebta dhigey. Duuliye Axmed waxaa durba loo gudbiyey magaalada Jabouti halkaas oo warkiisa wakaaladaha wararku kala boobeen, halkaas oo ay markii ugu horeeysey dowladda Soomaaliya ka warheshey inuu goostey oo uu bad qabo, waayo waxaa markii hore loo qaatey in ay dayuuraddii la burburtey, maadaama fariintii ugu dambeysey ee laga heley aheyd iney ciladi haysato. Taliskii Siyaad Barre aad iyo aad ayeey arinkaas uga carootey, waxeeyna u aragtey in duuliyahaas oo aan gacanteeda kusoo noqon uu kashifaad ku yahey howsha milatari ee waqtigaas ka socotey gobolada waqooyi oo ay dowladdu aad u qarineysey. Islamarkiiba, waxaa la joojiyey duqeeyntii dayuuradaha iyadoo laga shakiyey duuliyayaashii Soomaalida ahaa, waxeyna markii dambe sida la xaqiiyey ay dowladdu soo kireysatey calooshood u shaqeystayaal u dhashey dalka Koonfur Afrika oo la wareegey howlihii duqeynta. Dhinaca kale waxa uu taliskii Soomaaliya ku cadaadiyey dowladda Jabouti in ay si deg deg ah ugu soo gacangaliso duuliyaha goostey, taas oo ay dowladda Jabouti ka dhago adeygtey, waxa uuna duuliye Axmed markii dambe galey xarun ay qaramada midoobey ku lahey magaalada Jabouti, wuxuuna halkaas ku jirey ilaa uu magangalyo ka heley dalka Luxembourg oo uu markii dambe dagey.

Ma jirin su’aal u furneyd waa amar ciidan, waxa uu durba usoo safrey Xamar, wuxuuna isla habeenkii intii aan la gaarin subixii oo ka ballansanaa xarunta dhexe ee ciidanka ee Afyooni, kulan la tashi ah ugu tagey saaxiibkiis Gaashaanle sare Cali Dhayaar oo ahaa sarkaal ay ka wada tirsanaayeen ciidanka cirka, hase ahaatee ka sarreyey kana khibrad badnaa, waxeyna iska wareysteen waxa uu noqon karo waxa loogu yeerey, wuxuuna xiligaas Axmed qabey tuhun ah in loo diri karo dagaalka goboladii Waqooyi Galbeed xiligaas ka socdey. Markii ay kulmeen isaga iyo saaxiibkii, waxay wadajir isula fahmeen waxa uu yahey amarka sugaya barri subax oo ah inuu Hargeysa u baqoolo, hase ahaate waxaa walaac badan ay kala kulmeen oo ay xadidi waayeen sida uu ka yeelayo, waxa xiga safarka Hargeysa oo ah in la fuliyo duqeyn dayuuradeed oo uu khasaare nafeed iyo mid maaliyadeed oo ba’an ka dhalan karo.Col. Cali Dhayaar oo Axmed saaxiibkiis ahaa, walaac kadib wuxuu ugu soo gaabiyey warkii ( saaxiib dadkaaga inaad badbaadiso oo aadan layneynin ma aha mid laguu sheegayo, wixiisa kale oo aad yeeleyso adigaa yaqaan..). Walwal iyo walbaar ayuu Axmed Dheere habeenkii oo dhan sariirta la gadgadoomayey, waxaana uuna iswaydiinayey tabaha iyo xeeladda u furan ee uu yeeli karo haddii barri subax lagu yiraahdo dayuuradaan Hargeysa u socota raac, maalinta xigtana lagula wareejiyo garoonka dayuuradaha diyaaraddii uu ku duqeyn kahaa isla magaaladaas. Ogoow oo waxa uu laynayo waa dadkii loosoo tababarey inuu iyaga cadowga ka difaaco. Waa arin aad iyo aad u kharaar. Waa sidii uu qiyaasayaye, markii uu subixii iska xaadiriyey Xaruntii ciidan ee looga yeerey, waxaa loo sheegey meesha uu u socdo iyo shaqada uu halkaas ka qabanayo labadaba.Go’aankii kharaaraa!!

Axmed ilaa xiligaas ma qaadan wax go’aan ah waxa u uka yeelayo amarka la siiyey, wuxuuna dhex makhuuranaya walaac iyo walbahaar, waqti uu kaga sii fikiro waxa uu yeeli doonana uma harin, laakiin wuxuu meel ku guntadey inuusan marna waxyeello soo gaarsiin dadkiisa..Labadii dayuuradood oo aad u dheereynaya ayaa durba kor marey magaalada, waxeeyna u jiheysteen dhinaca galbeed. Duuliye Axmed Waxeey ishiisu qabatey kumaan shacab ah oo magaalada kasii qaxaya iyo qaar kale oo dadsan geedaha hoostooda. Islamarkiiba waxaa jiireysey dayuuraddii hore oo biloowdey duqeyntii, hase yeeshee dayuuraddii labaad masoo jiirey. ( geesi ilaahey ma xiro, fuleyna laba jeer buu dhintaa..) waa tii la dhihi jireye Axmed, wuxuu durba qaatey amar diido dadban wuxuuna ku marmarsiyoodey in ciladi haysato, markii uu sargaalkii ka horeey ku amrey inuu soo jiireeyo oo uu duqeynta ducadiisa ka bilaabo. Islamarkiiba, hoos ayuu u daadajiyey, si uga dhuunto raadaarka ciidanka Farasiiska oo Jabouti fadhiyey oo u uka baqayey iney toogtaan, wuxuuna durba galey xuduudda Jabouti iyadoon cidna dareemin. Badda dusheeda!Durba duuliye Axmed wuxuu arkey isagoo dul heehaabaya badda dusheeda, wuxuuna gudaha usii galey oo uu kusii fogaadey badda, halkaas oo uu ku faarujiyey rasaastii iyo bambaanooyinkii uu sidey. Markii uu muddo badda dul heehaabayey, ayuu nasiib wanaag si lama filaan ula kulmey meel banaan oo xeebta ah oo biyaha baddu ka durkeen habeenkii, halkaas oo uu inta xeeladeysan ugu soo dhawaadey tartiib si nabadgalyo ah ku fariisiyey dayuuraddii xeebta, wuxuuna ka dagey asagoo badqaba. Waqti kooban markii uu ku lugeynayey xeebta ayaa waxaa arkey kaluumeysato reer Jabouti ah, kuwaas oo markii ay arkeen ninkaan qafilan ee duuliyaha ee meesha maraya la yaabey, waxeyna weydiiyeen wuxuu yahey iyo waxa halkan keeney, wuxuuna u sheegey inuu Soomaaliya kasoo goostey oo dayuurad wadey oo xeebta dhigey. Duuliye Axmed waxaa durba loo gudbiyey magaalada Jabouti halkaas oo warkiisa wakaaladaha wararku kala boobeen, halkaas oo ay markii ugu horeeysey dowladda Soomaaliya ka warheshey inuu goostey oo uu bad qabo, waayo waxaa markii hore loo qaatey in ay dayuuraddii la burburtey, maadaama fariintii ugu dambeysey ee laga heley aheyd iney ciladi haysato. Taliskii Siyaad Barre aad iyo aad ayeey arinkaas uga carootey, waxeeyna u aragtey in duuliyahaas oo aan gacanteeda kusoo noqon uu kashifaad ku yahey howsha milatari ee waqtigaas ka socotey gobolada waqooyi oo ay dowladdu aad u qarineysey. Islamarkiiba, waxaa la joojiyey duqeeyntii dayuuradaha iyadoo laga shakiyey duuliyayaashii Soomaalida ahaa, waxeyna markii dambe sida la xaqiiyey ay dowladdu soo kireysatey calooshood u shaqeystayaal u dhashey dalka Koonfur Afrika oo la wareegey howlihii duqeynta. Dhinaca kale waxa uu taliskii Soomaaliya ku cadaadiyey dowladda Jabouti in ay si deg deg ah ugu soo gacangaliso duuliyaha goostey, taas oo ay dowladda Jabouti ka dhago adeygtey, waxa uuna duuliye Axmed markii dambe galey xarun ay qaramada midoobey ku lahey magaalada Jabouti, wuxuuna halkaas ku jirey ilaa uu magangalyo ka heley dalka Luxembourg oo uu markii dambe dagey.

Westgate terror attackers sentencing postponed as court orders probe into abduction of acquitted suspect

Thursday October 22, 2020 Hussein Hassan Mustafah, left, Liban Abdullah Omar, center, and Mohamed Ahmed Abdi, right, who are charged with aiding the gunmen involved in the Westgate Mall attack in Sept. 2013, appear during their trial at Milimani court in the capital Nairobi, Kenya Monday, Oct. 5, 2020. Nairobi (HOL) - A Nairobi court has pushed back the sentencing date for two people who were found guilty for their role in the deadly attack on an upscale shopping mall in Kenya's capital in 2013 that killed 67 people. The men — Mohamed Ahmed Abdi and Hussein Hassan Mustafah — were found guilty on Oct 7 for conspiracy to commit terrorism and to aid a terrorist organization. A third suspect, Liban Abdullah Omar, was acquitted of all charges but was abducted by armed men when he was stopped in his taxi the following day. The sentencing for Ahmed Abdi and Hassan Mustafa was initially scheduled for Thursday, but the prosecution had advised the court that they have yet to complete a probation report. Peter Macharia said that the prosecution must still interview victims to record their impact statements. Ads By Google "It's the probation report that will guide the court to determine the nature of sentence to be imposed upon the two accused persons," lead prosecutor, Edwin Okello, told the court. A new sentencing date has been scheduled for Oct 30. The defence did not oppose the postponement. Meanwhile, a Nairobi court ordered the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) to launch a probe into the alleged abduction of Liban Abdillahi Omar, the suspect. He was snatched off the street following his acquittal on terror charges for lack of evidence. Omar, whose brother was said to be one of the Al-Shabaab fighters killed in the terror attack, had just left Nairobi's anti-terror police offices following his release from Kamiti Maximum Prison. Minutes later, his family says the taxi he was travelling in with relatives was accosted by a black Subaru carrying gunmen wearing black balaclavas. Omar's lawyer, Mbugua Mureithi, said that Omar's abductors identified themselves as state security agents and whisked away his client in broad daylight without providing an arrest warrant or proper identifcaton. He added that his family does not know where he is being held or if he is even alive. "They are now waiting for Allah to intervene and bring to service their abducted kin. They have also not heard anything from the police, whom they are in constant touch with," Mr Mureithi told the Nation. Westgate Mall terror attack suspect Liban Abdullah Omar leaves the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi on October 7, 2020 following his acquittal. AFP Mureithi said that four other clients that he represented in a separate terror case two years ago met a similar fate. Although the police have yet to comment publicly, the circumstances surrounding Liban's disappearance bear striking similarities to other Kenyan terror suspects who have been disappeared after being acquitted of similar charges. Despite his disappearance, Noordin Haji, the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has announced that his office intends to appeal Omar's acquittal. Numerous human rights organizations have accused Kenya's Anti-Terror police over the past half-decade of carrying out extrajudicial killings, enforced disappearances, and other abuses. advertisements   Federal police shut down planned protest in Beledweyne - HOL Germany contributes additional €7.2 million for the delivery of health services and bolster the COVID-19 emergency response - UNICEF Somali student talks of her Stonebridge to Cambridge University experience - Kilburn Times Somalis In Tech: The Grand Finale Hackathon - HOL Somalia’s Central Bank refutes claims of legal suits against local bank - HOL Puntland submits names for Federal Elections Committee - HOL Racist attack investigation reopened by Met Police - BBC Police in Somali region arrest three senior ONLF regional officials, one official served with warrant - Addis Standard Food and nutrition security in times of drought is key to achieving peace in the Horn of Africa - FAO Two West African presidents are out of terms.
