As i stated at the begining of this debate, The Ehiopians that you see in American are the minority elite, and the are mixed with italian and Arab, most Ethiopians DO NOT LOOK LIKE THEM! as a matter of fact the Ethiopians in America do not wish to associate with rest of Africa and would prefer to marry a WHITE man or another light skinned Ethiopian ( i know, i lived in DC which as the largest populations of Ethiopians in America) so your assertions are baseless, I NEVER SAID ANY ONE WAS NOT "AFRICAN" FOR HAVING MIXED BLOOD ;THE FACT STILL REMAINS THEY DO, SO PLEASE STOP MISQUOTING ME STICK TO THE FACTS! as i stated to the gentlemen above if you can read Arabic, i will be happy to share works of Arabic scholars that i have. I also have works by Roman and Greek scholars like your Herodotus 'the father of history' who traveled Africa, and gave descriptions of the people and places they came across, NONE OF THEM HAVE DESCRIPTIONS OF AFRICANS WITH LIGHT SKIN AND WAVY HAIR! oh wait they don't count because they were racist right?OmowaleX said:Question:
"Am I right or wrong?"
Brother, you are absolutely correct.
The thing is I am sure than even these "Ethiopian" and "Oromo" women are BLACKER than MOST "Black" "American" women.
Not only that, but when you really look at it, the stereotypical "African" features only apply to an increasingly regional grouping in West African countries, while if one would examine closely MOST North, Eastern, and Southern African societies one finds the "rainbow" of diverse shades and CULTURES.
SOME of the arguments here are straight from STORMFRONT and when we are not able to physically SEE exactly who some of these posters are then SOME could quite possibly be internet TROLLS and if not, they certainly are doing the work of the racist european "scholars" who for years have attempted to classify Ethiopians as "Semites" and "Europeans" while in antiquity the words "Ethiopian and MOOR were virtually synonomous with BLACK!
In fact, if we read carefully Herodotus and others, the word Ethiopian was used long before the word "African".
Yet, here we have folks claiming "African" and then denying the usage of "Ethiopian" AND "Black".
As Kwame Ture used to say, "CONFUSION, EVERYWHERE!"
What part of South African wasn't colonoized by White people?
In the Prophet, Kalil Gibran says:
Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth."
Say not, "I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path."
