I’m Ethiopian? Black? People don’t understand.

San Francisco, CA.

My family originates in Ethiopia, and I am the first generation who was not born there. So what does that make me? I am the true definition of African American. My family is from Africa and I was born in America, thus making me an African American. When I tell people I’m ethiopian, they never know what I mean so I make it simple for myself by calling myself Black. Yet people also do not consider me black either. So I ask again what does that make me? I wasn’t born in Ethiopia so I can’t necessarily call myself a true ethiopian person. However my peers don’t consider me Black. Leaving me no where to check what race I am when asked in forms. I embrace my ethiopian side, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t sting a little when my African American peers don’t consider me one of them. Just because I know where I am from Africa shouldn’t make me an outcast.

    Some Blacks born in the United States do not consider themselves to be American at all. They believe themselves to be more culturally and genetically tied to Africa, despite the fact their ancestors had their homes, languages, and spiritual systems stripped away by the transAtlantic slave trade.
    Malcolm X voiced this sentiment in a 1964 speech: ”We’re not Americans, we’re Africans who happen to be in America. We were kidnapped and brought here against our will from Africa. We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock — that rock landed on us.”

      That because Negroid Sub-Saharans have the same origin: West Africa. And they speak the same language: Bantu. While latinos are higly mixed with people from multiple places. A person from Colombia can be fully white or fully indian or fully black or a mix of everything. The situation for Abyssinians, Oromos, Somalis and Other African minorities being forgotten on the census is exclusively caused by african americans.

        BULLCRAP. You are one of those “blame black people” for everything race related. No, black people weren’t consulted to any Census changes in the Dept of Mgt of Budget. And those census racial classifications go back to the 70s and for Africa all the way back to the earliest days of American gov’t.

        “Exclusively caused by African Americans”. You got a thing to take anything respectful from black people because you hate them THAT much?

        Get outta here!!!

      • You idiot that’s the governments failure to recognize the cultural differences between black peoples

      • You idiot that’s the governments failure to recognize the cultural differences between black peoples

  • forsakenamerican

    Some of us do, Here in the states being American black is different than being an African American, What I do find a bit interesting is that some American blacks, consider them selves as Africans, but culture wise they are far from it. Much as many other Americans via, Asian or Euro descent who family been here for decades to hundreds of yrs. are different.
    I also have noticed that Africans and many Black Americans seem not to get along so well. Being I am neither I don’t under stand, but If I were to guess, I would say both stereo type each other, One thinks that they are uneducated, and savage, while the other thinks that they are criminals gang members.
    I would love to see one do a documentary on such a topic

    If you are from a Abyssinian family like me, than you are dark caucasian, because race is not related to skin color or hair color. If you were white skinned you’d be more european than most white americans we see out there. White skin was originated in which is now Russia/Ukraine, and spread through Europe and then to Levant in Middle East. We and our neighbours were not affected by this european expansion. Most people from Nothern Africa and Arab Peninsula look like us. You need study our history to know what exactly you are… and you’ll feel proud for being Abyssinian. That’s what you are, Abyssinian-American =)

    • Dave

      What the heck is a “dark Caucasian”???

      There is no way, that is a racist myth, What is it with people running to lap dog this white racist self-hating garbage.

      What are you talking about, “if your skin was lighter”?

      What kind of DRIVEL is that??? “We and our neighbors”

      Who is this? KENYA? Sudan? CFA? Heck man, the NILE is the tie that binds you.

      Man what a shame, you run to whiteness as a way to legitimize yourself. No you are not a Caucasian, and most Ethiopians don’t even come close, light or dark.

      No one is going to confuse you with a white person.

      • thats what they do they try to claim everything but then called them niqqers

      ccording to David MacRitchies the most ancient Uralic speakers were called czernii ugris or ‘Black Ugris’. The Ugris were also called Hunni. The name Ugrian, is the origin for the word Hungarian. The Hungarians were also called Sabatocospali ,”the Blacks”.

      In conclusion the archaeological evidence suggest that The Old Europeans may have been Blacks who carried the N1 lineage to Europe that were later replaced by Indo-European speaking populations. There were probably no ancient white foragers of farmers in ancient Europe.

      BIBLE – the bible has been rewritten a dozen times by people that weren’t even from the times of the original works, and the bible was written by 3 different groups. (assyrians 1250bc, romans/greeks and the hebrews)

      Egyptian history is generally considered to have begun in 3200 B.C. when King Menes (also called Narmer) united the Upper and Lower Kingdoms. The last native dynasty fell to the Persians in 341 B.C. and was replaced by Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. Arabs introduced Islam and the Arabic language into Egypt in the seventh century.c
      Over its long history, Egypt has been known by many different names. For example, during the Old Kingdom (2650-2134 B.C.), Egypt was called Kemet or Black Land, which referred to the dark, rich soil of the Nile Valley. It was also called Deshret, or Red Land, which referred to Egypt’s vast deserts. Later, it was known as Hwt-ka-Ptah or “House of the Ka of Ptah.” Ptah was one of Egypt’s earliest gods. The Greeks changed Hwt-ka-ptah to Aegyptu but, why did the sumerians name comes from Akkadian, the language of the north of Mesopotamia, and means “land of the civilized kings”. The Sumerians called themselves “the black headed people” and their land, in cuneiform script, was simply “the land” or “the land of the black headed people”

      in Egypt, children (even girls) were considered a blessing. The Greeks who sometimes left unwanted infants (most often girls) outdoors to die, were shocked to discover that the Egyptians did not.a

      Genesis 10:6-11 – And the sons of Ham; Cush (kush), and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
      The first King of Egypt, was Pharaoh, the grandson of Ham and Egyptus.

      Egyptus was a Canaanite be decent, and was black. For this reason Egypt was referred to as Kemet (Kermit), or simply Kmt , which means the Black land. They called themselves “remetch en Kermet”, which means the “People of the Black Land”.

      Phaorah:
      kingdom of kush
      716-702 B.C.E.

      (1186bc) once egytp fought the sea people (invaders) they lost theryre land and white people became pharoahs, hence alexander the great was a pharoah by invading not by blood, (300bc)
      look up ancient egyptians they’re land had all blacks before invaders took ther’ye land look up these pharoah and look at that bible verse……… any coincidence???? 3000 BC

      assyrians went to war with our people and they worshipped the god ashur, while the hebrews worshipped YHWH. the assyrians wrote sum of the bible but were gentile jews (gentile means not real jews)

      they pushed the hebrews to egytp from isreal. hence while the bible says Genisis 40:15
      “For I was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should have put me into the dungeon.”

      the romans and greeks stole the land and destroyed the original linguistics hence why hebrew is the original language but sum how its a dead language. (i wonder why?)

      why do you think all the modern bibles etc are written in roman and greek and latin?

      notice how cleopatra etc are from alexandria? their rule lasted for 275 years, from 305 BC to 30 BC. They were the last dynasty of ancient Egypt.

      once yahshua died (thats jesus real name, not jesus) the council of nicea then made the whole christianity thing into a european background hence romans: council on nacea (325 ad)

      (256ad) look at the oldest depictions of jesus, virgin marry etc were black depicted unitl the 1500ad. was the first white depictions of jesus thanks to carlos and the king

      lets conclude by adding sum events and bible text:

      1. Look up OPERATION MOSES- the CIA helped the real black jews back and forth to their land of isreal and ethiopia and america.
      look it up and look at all the pictures those are the real ones.

      2. LOOK UP “The House of Solomon” is the former ruling Imperial House of the Ethiopian Empire. Its members claim patrilineal descent from Solomon of Israel and the Queen of Sheba.

      3. LOOK UP MENELIK 1

      4. WHY DO U THINK THEY COMPLETELY CHANGED THE NAMES OF EGYPT,ETHIOPIA, IRAN ETC?

      BIBLE (greek even though jews couldnt even read in that language… weird right?): 100ad

      REV 1:15
      And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

      Acts Chapter 8
      27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

      circa bc1: in Sudan, and at the Naqa Lion Temple. Images of Natakamani frequently include an image of Amanitore, however, it could be that Amanitore was his mother rather than his wife. A Kandake was a powerful position in the hierarchy of Kush. The mothers would rule and create their sons as rulers, but they also deposed their own sons too. In fact, a Kandake could order the king to commit suicide to end his rule, an order that he was required to follow.
      Amanitore is buried in her own pyramid in Meroë. The tomb is approximately six metres square at its base, and not a pyramid in the mathematical sense.
      Some sources say otherwise, but she is said to be mentioned in the Bible in the story about the conversion of the Ethiopian in Acts 8:26–40:[4]
      And the angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, Get up, and go toward the south unto the way that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, which is desert. And he got up and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Isaiah the prophet….

      Song of Solomon 1:5-6 – I [am] black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

      Acts 8:27-31 – And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

      The old testaments and other things that are wayyy before the original bible first started with the hebrews. CAN YOU PLEASE LOOK UP WHAT THE HEBREWS WERE AND WHERE THEY LIVED? BOOM AFRICA BOOM THEY WERE SLAVES.

      (please google or research everything) (even the sculptures look like gucci mane the rapper lol)

      look up black headed people – sumerians

      even lucy (the first human was in ethiopia (adam and eve?)

      According to traditional Ethiopian histories, Canaan’s son Arwadi (lit. “the Arvadite”) and his wife Entela crossed from Asia into Ethiopia in 2101 BC, and the Qemant tribe were said to be descended from their son, Anayer. There is further an Ethiopian tradition that two other Canaanite tribes, viz. the Sinites and Zemarites, also entered Ethiopia at the time it was ruled by the Kingdom of Kush, and became the Shanqella and Weyto peoples, respectively (Yohannes Wolde Mariam, Yealem Tarik, 1948 p. 105-6.)

      DEAR COONS, NEGROPEANS, BLACK PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY WHITE, OR SUM CARRIBEANS ISLANDERS THAT DONT THINK TEY BLACK BUT GO DARKER SKIN THAN PAUL MOONI:

      STOP USING LIGHT SKIN VS BLACK SKIN, SLAVE OWNERS WRITTEN A INSTRUCTION 100’S YEARS!!!!!!! So stop with the coonin, u think they care you light skinned or half white? just 50 years ago they had a one drop rule, they would have considered u filthy but now a days whites are claiming everything they can, now the love drake, etc. so watch out now, they are declining in numbers and are ruthless to keep order.

      (written in 1712!) willie lynch letter the making of a slave:

      “Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD BLACK MALE vs. the YOUNG BLACK MALE
      and the YOUNG BLACK MALE against the OLD BLACK MALE. You must use the
      Dark Skin Slaves vs. the Light Skin Slaves
      and the Light Skin Slaves vs. the Dark
      Skin Slaves. You must use the Female vs.
      the Male, and the Male vs. the Female.
      You must also have your white servants and
      overseers Distrust all Blacks, but it is necessary your slaves trust and depend on us.”

      A MESSAGE TO MY FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS…

      WATCH OUT FOR THE CULTURE VULTURES:

      Whites loved calling us hoodlums etc, but now a days they steal all of our culture literally, just like paul said, everybody wants to be black but no body wants to be black. WE MUST UNITE AND BRAND OUR CULTURE SO THAT ITS EVIDENT WE ARE THE TRUE PEOPLE OF GOD.
      YOU SEEN ALL THESE MOVIES OF WHITE WASH, WHITE EGYPTIANS?

      how y’all saying the caucuses are egyptian and greek, but the greeks etc are the ones that invaded africa???
      what since does that make???

      First, we must understand what White skin really means and who White people really are. In a nutshell Whites are mutated inbred albinos. it has been determined that melanin is needed for the efficient metabolization of vitamin D and calcium.
      Since White skin reflects sunshine, a primary source of vitamin D, compensation for not getting adequate amounts from the sun because of calcium depletion from bones, therefore decreasing bone density and making Caucasians more susceptible to Osteoporosis.
      Whites are also the most susceptible to kidney stones composed of calcium oxylate. It is a well known fact that the sun causes skin cancer in White people more than any other people on this Earth, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that the sun also sterilizes Whites.
      The lack of melanin or pigment leaves Whites vulnerable to photolysis. The decomposition of folate or folic acid in the blood levels is critical for cell replication and reproduction. This is the real reason behind the low Caucasian birthrates. The experienced problems with fertility are not behavioral but biological one that cannot seem to be controlled.
      The foliate levels plummet by up to 50% when exposed to solar radiation, and even in the radiation in tanning salons. The genetically deficient genes giveABSOLUTELY NO benefit in nature, in tropical, temperament climates OR northern cold climates.
      Everything we have been led to believe is a myth. It has become so dogmatic that many people subconsciously try to refute this instinctively because it does not coincide with the indoctrination that permeates thought processes so deeply. Since Caucasians cannot reproduce genetic material (melanin), they could not have spawned humanity.
      Because the sun sterilizes and is sending Whites on a course toward extinction, they will not survive independently for very long without people of color depositing their genetic material to make their cell replication and reproduction more feasible. Caucasians are becoming extinct in Europe just like everywhere else on the planet showing NON-ADAPTATION.
      White gene DNA cannot be traced back as far as their genetic parents, BLACK AFRICANS! The result is sufficient evidence for their not being the progenitors of humanity or civilization. The deficient genes simply will not last that long in the presence of a majority black/brown people. Their birthrates globally are below replacement levels, and even if they didn’t have to worry about being bred out of existence by black/brown genes, their numbers would still dwindle because of victimization by photolysis

  • Dave

    My dear you are black. I respect you and you do not need to explain yourself. If you are not black then there are no black people on this earth. If you are not black then the shared heritage of your ancestors and Kenya, and the other African people means nothing. One cannot carve a line out of Africa from Ethiopia and say “they are not black”.

    My dear, you are black, be proud, black people come in variety. They want you to think that you must be a stereotype to be black. But you sit around other black people and you blend in. You sit around any other “race” of people and you stand out, except maybe Indians, and many of them are also black.

    Your peers are either ignorant (if white) or ignorant and/or self hating (if black). Do not fall for their lies.

    • Cocoa

      Dave you rock! We certainly do come in variety. Dinah is definitely our sister. And we definitely do understand her willingness to say she is black.

  • Brother Man

    Don’t get it twisted. You are definitely black. I’m sorry that you are confused.

  • Cocoa

    You are not an outcast. We are all family with beautiful differences.

    I am first generation American from Haitian parents who are now US citizens. I consider myself African-American just because I am black born in America. But, in school and my neighborhood and even as an adult, my experiences were that of an outsider because of my parents’ accents and our “different ways.” Like… my mother collected rainwater to wash her face. I was so embarrassed because the neighbors could see & they acted as if we had no running water at our house and talked about us. But we did. Now it 2015 and I do the same because it’s great for the skin! She is 73 with no wrinkles and baby soft face & hands. Like I said, we’re different.

    I’ve been told so many times… you’re not an African-American you’re a Haitian-American. My brothers and I are the only Americans in a family of Haitians. I’m still black and so are you.

    There are continental Africans (born & raised there.) You’re African 1st removed. Black Americans are African 2nd removed. Those of us black Americans with parents from islands & countries not in Africa are African 3rd removed. We’re are all black and culturally diverse with different nationalities and beautiful. We are family. It’s why I am learning Amharic (along with Swahili) I already speak English, French & Creole. It’s my observation that Hebrew and Arabic speakers don’t feel a kinship to black African so Amharic is the only Semetic culture and language I would learn. Ethiopia was never conquered (just a 5yr Italian occupation which is nothing in the thousands of years of history) and I feel proud of that fact. There is a kinship there.

    Every Ethiopian I have met identify as black.

    • Abyssinian

      I am Ethiopian, but not African. I love Africans and have nothing to be ashamed of if I were one. However, my dark skin does not automatically make me African. Black Africans, as a whole, have different physiology than those of Ethiopians. Just like East Indians live in Asia but are not Asians, Ethiopians live in Africa but are not Africans. You look at the demographic, linguistic, and historic accounts of both peoples and it becomes clear that there is a difference between Ethiopia and Black Africa. There is nothing wrong in being different. I can have black or brown skin colour and not necessarily be African or Sri Lankan. I can just be Ethiopian.

      • freequeensees : frequencies

        You sure can. I’m American. Period. I just like to identify as Black American. And Haitian American. But nothing will take away my American birth right. So, to each his own.

      • lol abyssinian lololololololololololol ur not african but ethiopian smh u do realize before white people called it africa south africa was called ethiopia? omg smh my people are lost

      • ARE U READING WHAT UR SAYING, GO PICK UP A HISTORY BOOK, BLAME THE GENTILES FOR UR CONFUSION. THE ENEMY FORCED U INTO A CORNER AND CHANGED UR NAMES TO CONFUSE WHERE U CAME FROM. ETHIOPIA IS IN AFRICA AND THE MILD STONE FOR AFRICA, U SHOULD BE PROUD TO BE AFRICAN

    I ran across your post during my research. If you’d allow it, I have answers.
    I’m sorry for your experience, but as some comfort- this is a common issue for Ethiopians.
    The races are anthropomorphic distinctions absent of any derogatory sociological undertones. As a disclaimer- in the year 2015 the races are incredibly intermixed- the issue of race is huge and incredibly convoluted, I wouldn’t bother with trying to find a group to align with, they’ll find you.
    But generally it stands that Europe, Middle East, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa regions fall under the Caucasoid distinction. The Caucasoid race include the popular Aryans (“whites”), Semites, and Hamites – we fall under this category. So the next time you mark a race when you fill a form, look for the description. European, Middle Eastern, North African are all classified as “White”. It’s a poor title for the a racial category considering the issues surrounding it, but it is where you fall under.
    Another disclaimer- the races are fairly accurately defined not only anthropomorphically, but also by actual territories.
    I do understand socially this can be taxing trying to find a people away from home. “White” and “Black” Americans find you a stranger and no one else knows any better. All is well in the end and will always be, nature has a way of working itself out. You don’t owe either side your alliance. You’re a beautiful Ethiopian. FIN

    • Do you know how recently race scientist began this distinction between black Africans from west/south/center and east African “hamite” races. Originally the curse of ham was the explanation for the black race in general. Ethiopia being considered Caucasian is an interesting new concept considering Ethiopia is the birth black of human beings.

    Not a single black person originated in west Africa…they migrated to western Africa within the last 10,000 years.Most blacks originated in eastern or southern Africa.There is no such place as Sub Saharan Africa…Africa is Africa and only black people are Africans.All non blacks on the continent are invaders and that especially includes those Arab mongrels in the north.

    Egyptus was a Canaanite be decent, and was black. For this reason Egypt was referred to as Kemet (Kermit), or simply Kmt , which means the Black land. They called themselves “remetch en Kermet”, which means the “People of the Black Land”.

    Phaorah:
    kingdom of kush
    716-702 B.C.E.

    (1186bc) once egytp fought the sea people (invaders) they lost theryre land and white people became pharoahs, hence alexander the great was a pharoah by invading not by blood, (300bc)
    look up ancient egyptians they’re land had all blacks before invaders took ther’ye land look up these pharoah and look at that bible verse……… any coincidence???? 3000 BC

    assyrians went to war with our people and they worshipped the god ashur, while the hebrews worshipped YHWH. the assyrians wrote sum of the bible but were gentile jews (gentile means not real jews)

    they pushed the hebrews to egytp from isreal. hence while the bible says Genisis 40:15
    “For I was in fact kidnapped from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing that they should have put me into the dungeon.”

    the romans and greeks stole the land and destroyed the original linguistics hence why hebrew is the original language but sum how its a dead language. (i wonder why?)

    why do you think all the modern bibles etc are written in roman and greek and latin?

    notice how cleopatra etc are from alexandria? their rule lasted for 275 years, from 305 BC to 30 BC. They were the last dynasty of ancient Egypt.

    once yahshua died (thats jesus real name, not jesus) the council of nicea then made the whole christianity thing into a european background hence romans: council on nacea (325 ad)

    (256ad) look at the oldest depictions of jesus, virgin marry etc were black depicted unitl the 1500ad. was the first white depictions of jesus thanks to carlos and the king

    lets conclude by adding sum events and bible text:

    1. Look up OPERATION MOSES- the CIA helped the real black jews back and forth to their land of isreal and ethiopia and america.
    look it up and look at all the pictures those are the real ones.

    2. LOOK UP “The House of Solomon” is the former ruling Imperial House of the Ethiopian Empire. Its members claim patrilineal descent from Solomon of Israel and the Queen of Sheba.

    3. LOOK UP MENELIK 1

    4. WHY DO U THINK THEY COMPLETELY CHANGED THE NAMES OF EGYPT,ETHIOPIA, IRAN ETC?

    BIBLE (greek even though jews couldnt even read in that language… weird right?): 100ad

    REV 1:15
    And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    Acts Chapter 8
    27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

    circa bc1: in Sudan, and at the Naqa Lion Temple. Images of Natakamani frequently include an image of Amanitore, however, it could be that Amanitore was his mother rather than his wife. A Kandake was a powerful position in the hierarchy of Kush. The mothers would rule and create their sons as rulers, but they also deposed their own sons too. In fact, a Kandake could order the king to commit suicide to end his rule, an order that he was required to follow.
    Amanitore is buried in her own pyramid in Meroë. The tomb is approximately six metres square at its base, and not a pyramid in the mathematical sense.
    Some sources say otherwise, but she is said to be mentioned in the Bible in the story about the conversion of the Ethiopian in Acts 8:26–40:[4]
    And the angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, Get up, and go toward the south unto the way that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, which is desert. And he got up and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Isaiah the prophet….

    Song of Solomon 1:5-6 – I [am] black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.

    Acts 8:27-31 – And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

    The old testaments and other things that are wayyy before the original bible first started with the hebrews. CAN YOU PLEASE LOOK UP WHAT THE HEBREWS WERE AND WHERE THEY LIVED? BOOM AFRICA BOOM THEY WERE SLAVES.

    (please google or research everything) (even the sculptures look like gucci mane the rapper lol)

    look up black headed people – sumerians

    even lucy (the first human was in ethiopia (adam and eve?)

    According to traditional Ethiopian histories, Canaan’s son Arwadi (lit. “the Arvadite”) and his wife Entela crossed from Asia into Ethiopia in 2101 BC, and the Qemant tribe were said to be descended from their son, Anayer. There is further an Ethiopian tradition that two other Canaanite tribes, viz. the Sinites and Zemarites, also entered Ethiopia at the time it was ruled by the Kingdom of Kush, and became the Shanqella and Weyto peoples, respectively (Yohannes Wolde Mariam, Yealem Tarik, 1948 p. 105-6.)

    DEAR COONS, NEGROPEANS, BLACK PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY WHITE, OR SUM CARRIBEANS ISLANDERS THAT DONT THINK TEY BLACK BUT GO DARKER SKIN THAN PAUL MOONI:

    STOP USING LIGHT SKIN VS BLACK SKIN, SLAVE OWNERS WRITTEN A INSTRUCTION 100’S YEARS!!!!!!! So stop with the coonin, u think they care you light skinned or half white? just 50 years ago they had a one drop rule, they would have considered u filthy but now a days whites are claiming everything they can, now the love drake, etc. so watch out now, they are declining in numbers and are ruthless to keep order.

    (written in 1712!) willie lynch letter the making of a slave:

    “Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD BLACK MALE vs. the YOUNG BLACK MALE
    and the YOUNG BLACK MALE against the OLD BLACK MALE. You must use the
    Dark Skin Slaves vs. the Light Skin Slaves
    and the Light Skin Slaves vs. the Dark
    Skin Slaves. You must use the Female vs.
    the Male, and the Male vs. the Female.
    You must also have your white servants and
    overseers Distrust all Blacks, but it is necessary your slaves trust and depend on us.”

    A MESSAGE TO MY FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS…

    WATCH OUT FOR THE CULTURE VULTURES:

    Whites loved calling us hoodlums etc, but now a days they steal all of our culture literally, just like paul said, everybody wants to be black but no body wants to be black. WE MUST UNITE AND BRAND OUR CULTURE SO THAT ITS EVIDENT WE ARE THE TRUE PEOPLE OF GOD.
    YOU SEEN ALL THESE MOVIES OF WHITE WASH, WHITE EGYPTIANS?

    how y’all saying the caucuses are egyptian and greek, but the greeks etc are the ones that invaded africa???
    what since does that make???

    First, we must understand what White skin really means and who White people really are. In a nutshell Whites are mutated inbred albinos. it has been determined that melanin is needed for the efficient metabolization of vitamin D and calcium.
    Since White skin reflects sunshine, a primary source of vitamin D, compensation for not getting adequate amounts from the sun because of calcium depletion from bones, therefore decreasing bone density and making Caucasians more susceptible to Osteoporosis.
    Whites are also the most susceptible to kidney stones composed of calcium oxylate. It is a well known fact that the sun causes skin cancer in White people more than any other people on this Earth, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that the sun also sterilizes Whites.
    The lack of melanin or pigment leaves Whites vulnerable to photolysis. The decomposition of folate or folic acid in the blood levels is critical for cell replication and reproduction. This is the real reason behind the low Caucasian birthrates. The experienced problems with fertility are not behavioral but biological one that cannot seem to be controlled.
    The foliate levels plummet by up to 50% when exposed to solar radiation, and even in the radiation in tanning salons. The genetically deficient genes giveABSOLUTELY NO benefit in nature, in tropical, temperament climates OR northern cold climates.
    Everything we have been led to believe is a myth. It has become so dogmatic that many people subconsciously try to refute this instinctively because it does not coincide with the indoctrination that permeates thought processes so deeply. Since Caucasians cannot reproduce genetic material (melanin), they could not have spawned humanity.
    Because the sun sterilizes and is sending Whites on a course toward extinction, they will not survive independently for very long without people of color depositing their genetic material to make their cell replication and reproduction more feasible. Caucasians are becoming extinct in Europe just like everywhere else on the planet showing NON-ADAPTATION.
    White gene DNA cannot be traced back as far as their genetic parents, BLACK AFRICANS! The result is sufficient evidence for their not being the progenitors of humanity or civilization. The deficient genes simply will not last that long in the presence of a majority black/brown people. Their birthrates globally are below replacement levels, and even if they didn’t have to worry about being bred out of existence by black/brown genes, their numbers would still dwindle because of victimization by photolysis

    You’re black….

  • RastaB

    Selam fellow habesha. I consider myself black no matter how different my features may be. I grew up in a white town and was considered black. I went through the same exact racism and stereotypes by ignorant sheltered whites as other African-Americans who have further ancestry in this country while growing up in a white town. But interestingly enough, in a black majority city, I have been asked many numerous times if I was Indian. I just reply where my ancestry is from (Ethiopia) and if anyone asks if I am black or consider myself black I say yes. It is funny because a country over from ours, Sudan, where many have very similar features to us, they whole heartedly reject the notion that they are black but instead consider themselves Arabs.

  • Jessy

    Just because some people may not consider you African American doesn’t mean that you aren’t. I have the same situation with me. Parts of my family originate from Ethiopia, but many times when people have asked me what my background is, I would usually say Black to just sum it up. But, over time I learned that you need to ignore the people that don’t seem to get it. So be proud to say you’re African American because that is what you are and who you are. I also know your sister by the way. Just as a side note.

  • Euliss Benoit

    She made the most sensible stament.i ever heard.she is a black woman.plain and simple
