Ethiopia: Color and identity in Ethiopia

Arefe links to an interview discussing color and identity in Ethiopia: “Color is a relevant to us now, but has it been so before the rise of European cultural and political dominance? Where do we stand on color?”

    we dont have to discuss about this now, we have millions of problems to discuss, so just please change the subject. We discuss about this or not there is no change that is going to come in Ethiopia rather saying you are from this region, you are this….blablabla

  • Mnege

    I totaly agree with Habeshawit,
    we need to discus defrent issu than this, may be if we can think , How to use the good side of the curent government and what are they. I think we can finde a good side in all government(ruling party) either they are good or bad.
    Let us take a defrent aproach this time.
    God Bless Ethiopia!
