isn't black. Since he's Half Kenyan but you guys still consider him black same goes with Iman the supermodel who is Somali you consider her black but you don't consider regular Kenyans, ethiopians, Somalis, Eritreans black just because we have curly hair, small noses, and look different from west Africans. But you guys don't know that in Kenya, ethiopia and Somalia you get people that look west African there, we can't all look the same.

I just get tired that some carribean, west African and African American people don't consider us black.

East Africa= Kenya + Tanzania + Somalia + Eritrea + Ethiopia + Dijiboiti

Kenyans and Tanzanians for the most part are Bantu black Africans like Central Africans and look not so much different to West Africans.

Somalis, Eritreans, Ethiopians & Dijiboutians (Horn of Africa) are Afro-Asiatic black Africans like North Sudanese and black Tuaregs of the Sahara desert. The only thing that they all share in common different from Central-West Africans is they have curly to straight hair textures.

Please look at list of total GDP in Africa
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie ...(nominal)

Look at how Kenya is above Ethiopia although it has about a third of the population

Okay now look at this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somalia_Civil_Wa ...
and this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Eritr ...
And how about this; see how the WHOLE Horn of Africa has about a third of the economy (35 B)than all of Angola (99B), where our compatriots appear:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horn_of_africa
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angola

Okay please remind me why we should be claiming you again? oh, wait, it's you claiming us. Please don't, thanks.

Kenyans don't have straight or curly hair. Obama's father is Luo, please don't confuse people they are not stupid. The people who have straight or curly hair (maybe) are somalis in the north and the swahili mixed with arabs on the coast. Not Luo or any other tribes. That's it. Please do not try to claim us, thanks. We're happy to be kinky haired and well-fed.

I have love for all africans, but please stop trolling somali troll.

I know Kenya isn't in the horn of Africa but we still are in East Africa and our neighbour countries are Somalia, Ethiopia, Uganda and south sudan. I'm just sick of west african people saying we are not black and btw not all Somaliss are afroasiatic, we are all black so what if we have curly hair we are as black as AA's

AA with common since don't consider Obama black, because he is mixed.

Also Obamas black father wasn't a HOA. Who had soft hair and all that stuff. He looked like a regular African.

Also I thought East Africans didn't want to be considered black? Especially Somalis.

kenyans ugandans tanzanians etc have never claims to not be black the only people who have are:
(maybe)
-somalis in the north of kenya
-swahilis on the coast of kenya, tanzania, mozambique who were mixed with Arabs

THAT IS IT.
we don't have anything against non-black people but don't feel any need to try to associate ourselves with non-africans. being african and kinky haired is enough for us!!! better than starving to death or killing each other over foolishness

the rest of us are focused on IMPROVING OUR COUNTRY AND OUR ECONOMY AND NOT TALKING NONSENSE ABOUT SOFT HAIR
that's why they come as refugees to OUR COUNTRY and then insult us when they are in america
I really don't get it
Kenyans, ugandans, tanzanians, south sudanese are focused on education and are not arrogant and don't talk this foolishness
Look at OBAMA's father...dark as night, Phd in economics from Harvard RETURNED TO KENYA TO IMPROVE THE COUNTRY
look at these people, do come to western countries to spend time insulting other africans on online forums or youtube...HUGE DIFFERENCE...why don't you go and study??
kenyans, ugandans tanzanians are like nigerians and ghanians, serious people who don't like to talk about foolish things like hair texture. serious people who like education and being kind to ALL AFRICANS AND ALL PEOPLE.
pls go away "somali kenyan" troll. We love all africans but HATE those who like to look down onothers because of 'hair' please....

LOVE FOR ALL AFRICANS AND AFRICAN AMERICANS AND ALL PEOPLE... JUST DON'T TRY TO TROLL ON OUR BEHALF, THANKS
