Yeah, if you're going to make a forum topic you should usually give a hint about what the subject is. Most people are talking about some country or race, but really you made it so broad that Somalis could be a word you made up to refer to your toenails and we'd never know the difference.

Somalis are an ethnic group located in the Horn of Africa, also known as the Somali Peninsula. The overwhelming majority of Somalis speak the Somali language, which is part of the Cushitic subgroup of the Afro-Asiatic language family. Ethnic Somalis number around 20-25 million and are principally concentrated in Somalia, Ethiopia, Yemen (a little under 1 million), northeastern Kenya (about half a million), Djibouti (350,000), and an unknown but large number live in parts of the Middle East, North America and Europe due to the Somali Civil War.

no, it's based on the shooting down of a US military Black Hawk helicopter by Somali militants and the consequent lynching.
