Who are you to say whether someone's view of Ethiopia is a tainted one? Did you ever consider that maybe you misinterpreted what the poster was saying? Also, your view of northern Ethiopians is borderline chauvinistic itself. Perhaps they are more proud of being Ethiopian (or Christian or Muslim) than "African"... why is this any different (read: worse)?

Loulebele: I see your point. But, your (and applies to many others) view of Ethiopia is a tainted one and evokes images of starving people. Well, the home regions of this Boran (Oromo) mother from southern regions of Ethiopia has more in common with people in Kenya or southern Sudan and almost nothing to do with the "true" Ethiopians you have seen on the TV or elswhere. The southern regions of Ethiopia is home to many PROUDLY African groups. There is an Aparthied-like regime in Ethiopia where the ruling people from the northern regions of Ethiopia treate people in southern Ethiopia in the same way Arab Sudanese treat black Sudanese in Daarfur or southern Sudan.

So beautiful it made me cry
