Somalia NEGROE wins in Portland, Maine! I don't like it!!

Maine is the nation’s whitest state, but it is home to a growing population of Africans who have fled their homeland.

First- and second-generation candidates from four African countries — Somalia, Congo, Ghana and Nigeria — won seats on city councils and school committees across the state, continuing an established trend, said Mufalo Chitam, executive director of the Maine Immigrants’ Rights Coalition.
