The tutsi are the tall people of Rwanda, with the Caucasian features like Somalis. The hutus also committed the 1993 genocide against them. The hutus are the shorter, bantu people. I have saw this tutsi guy once, and he looked Somali, except his hair was really nappy. They also speak a kushtic language like Somalis, Afar and Oromos.I would say Oromos, but I don't know if Oromos are tall like typical Somalis.So, do you think that they're from Somalia originally?

Tutsis are Bantus and related to other Bantus like Hutus and not Somalis eventhough they look much like us. They are not mixed too.

Yeah, Tutsi women are said to be the tallest women in the world! Yep, they have the narrow features too. The only Tutsis that don't have the height and narrow features are Tutsis who've intermingled with other Central and East African people, like the Hutu!

I hate to get political, but actually more Rwandan Hutus died than Tutsis!!! Spain is currently investigating the killing of it's citizens that were there during the genocide; and they're setting up trials for those possibly involved in the massacres!

Surprise, surprise!!! Comes to find out Paul Kagame may have been an enabler of the genocide for the sole purpose to set-up his rise to power!!

It was already known that Hutu militia had slaughtered political moderate Rwandan Hutus(those who didn't go along with them), but more is coming to light about what role high ranking members of the Tutsi army, including Paul Kagame himself, may have played in the Rwandan genocide.

Basically, America helped fabricate these lies and set-up PROPAGANDA NEWS & MOVIES(like Hotel Rwanda) to make the ones they didn't want to come to power(Hutus, whether rebels or moderates) look bad, in order to help bring a "pro-American dictator"(Paul Kagame) to power!!!

Peace, in the middle east!

Have you read King Leopold's Ghost?

From what I understand Tutsis and Hutus were the same people for the most part until the Belgian elite designated groups...

I don't know...

If you tested their DNA it would give some answers.

They tested a group of Africans who did not look mixed or anything who swore they had Jewish descent and found that Jewish genes were present.

The Dinka's of Sudan are just as tall as the Tutsi's. So maybe they are related. But the Dinka look more Congo-Bantu than Kushitic.
Africans have the most diverse dna of any race. At one time all Africans were related when homo sapiens first appeared in East Africa.

They are bantus not Ethiopians, Somalians, Sudanese. They are bantus bantus bantus and related to their fellow bantus both genetically and culturally. they might look like Somalis because they are tall like us and have the same features but they are not related to us except that we are both Black/Africans.

Yes I did... I didnt say they didnt originated from these places but they are related to other Bantus like Hutus both culturally and gentically and not us. Did you even read the links you posted..

"Modern day genetic studies on the y-chromosome show the Tutsi to be 100% indigenous African (80% e3a, 4% e3, 1% e3b and 15%B). The data also shows that the Tutsi are genetically very similar to the Hutu."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tutsi

Even Bantus in Kenya are more related to us than Tutsis.

I dont think u get my point.I know they are related to bantu.Tusis migrated from east and hutu west.But i dont know if the hutu were bantu.Just cuz they are from the west that doesn't make them Bantu.

The Tutsis are not mix.THey are black/african.

Hutus and Tutsis are both Bantus. By the way all bantus migrated from the places around Cameroun once earlier in history.

TUTSIS ARE BANTUS. Who told you the lie that bantus look alike? Bantus mean people and its white people who started to call them Bantus..
Anyways.. There is Cushitic people like the Omotic people who have have broad faces and noses than us but are related more to us Cushites than they are to Bantus eventhough they look more like Bantus than us. Tutsis are both genetically and culturally Bantus(just read the link you posted). They speak a bantu language and share the same genes with them. The only thing they share with us is their look and the fact that we are both Black/Africans.. Nothing else and end of story. Kenyan Bantus are waaaaaaaaaay more related to us than Tutsis are both genetically and culturally speaking.

hutus and tutsis are genetically the same .No difference...they even speak the same language.I have a friend who is from burundi: a tutsi girl ,the first time I saw her,I thought she was pulaar (fulani),she looks exactly likes my sis...just to say that facial features mean nothing...cultural ties are more important...in my culture,we don't pay much attention to all these details ...maybe this is why west africa is all about peace and love...

Mr africa... Why are you always trying to convince people that West Africa is all good and the reslt(especially East Africa) is some kind of sh**t hole? We've peacefull and wartorn places in both sides of the continent... And yes I agree with you.. tehre is not much differences between the Hutus and Tutsis except the fact that they look different from eachother.
