Ilhan Omar is the FIRST Somali-American Muslim person to become a legislator. "People said I should be proud of myself if I got even 10% of the votes, but I’m pretty competitive. I wanted to keep going so I could prove them wrong. I ended up pushing all of the negative things aside because I kept thinking, regardless of whether we win or lose, this will shift the narrative about what is possible."

    • Carol Jean Cook

      Inbreeds are 75%among middle easterners and Africans. Low IQ is the result of inbreeding and yes it has been prevalent in the southern US that’s why many are morons.

    • Reginald Braithewaite

      Isn’t a belief in eugenics in 2019 the mark of a low IQ? You might as well give us stats on where “middle easterners and Africans” fall on your phrenological chart. Belief in that, too, is the hallmark of — how did you put it? — “morons.”

    • Abdullahi Ali

      She is not from Kentucky, Boy! Look up the Somalis. The most-resilient, the bravest, the proudest, the vainest, the friendliest; the
