Angola- bigger GDP than the whole horn of africa combined http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angola
Kenya-home of the us' current president's father, who returned after getting a phd at harvard to build his country. Filled with refugees from ethiopia, somalia and eritrea who live peacefully in our land http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya
Uganda- filled with beautiful culture and kindest people in the world. Delicious food, beautiful dark-skinned beauties (see KIARA KABAKURU, FORMER COVER GIRL IN USA), VERY SMART PEOPLE. Just found a ton of oil.
zimbabwe and mozambique-going through difficult times, but home of great zimbabwe and other beautiful ruins
south africa-struggling to remove vestiges of discrimination, africans regaining control of their country and the vast gold, diamons and other reserves. peacefully ousted rude european colonialists
south sudan-likewise struggling out of conflict with sudan. huge oil reserves and proud, strong people. beautiful models representing dark-skinned beauty known world over
rwanda-emerging from terrible genocide, now one of fastest growing countries in africa, trying reconciliation that can serve as model to rest of the world.
equatorial guinea- richest country by GDP per capita in africa (equivalent to GDP of spain). corrupt but hopefully getting better
Gabon-one of most stable and prosperous countries in africa, 2nd or 3rd (after equatorial guinea and botswana )highest GDP per capita in africa
and so on and so forth....
we are still poor (except botswana, gabon, equatorial guinea) but we have a bright future!!!!!!!!!!
we don't need to claim you. we welcome you if you want to join us in building africa. we reject you if you want to bring us into dark ages through fighting about hair, lineage etc.(somalia). no thanks. we'll keep our kinky hair any day!!!!!!!!!!
I don't understand why you Africans are jealous of horn africans? Why don't you leave them alone? I know Kenyans b/c I live in kenya and you are the most cruel and liars people in the world. Your country is one of most the corrupted country in the world. You are even killing each other on the streets. I have visited ethiopia and eritrea and they are very friendly, helping each other. You should go to these countries and find out yourself about their culture and everything I am sure you will like them.

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.
None of thsoe peoples are "Asiatic". That is a stupid racists white man's lie. There cultures are and have always been African. This is espedcially true of the Somalis. Somalis have never lived anywhere but in Africa. before 600 Ad there were no Somlais anywhere. So we know they did not come from Asia.

What happened is that in prehistory, people migrtaed from Africa to Asia and vice versa. So there has always been a cultural mixture. The important point is you would not call an Indian "afroasiatic" although they are usully very dark. Many are outright black. But you do not call a black skin Indain "afroasiatic". That makes no sense. So why call an Ethiopian "afroasiatic".

The fact is if you look closely at Africa, you will find that all coastal people have cultural misture with Asia. So why not call a Nigerian "afro-asiatic"? Many Nigerians have brown of light brown complexions. That is true of every coatal nation in Africa. So why single out East Africans alone. It is inconsistent and itr serves as nothing other than white man's tool of divide and conquer.

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
Kenyanboy - I sure am, r u?
Call yourself an African and forget about complexion. I think your real problem is Christianity. Muslims do not trip off that kind of nonsense.

It is jnot that. It is that no Muslim wants to be mixed up with kaffirs like you. You are a non-Believer. if you take a Somali withbrown complexionand sraight hair, he has no real beef witha Bantu Somali with black complexion and curly hair. They are all Somalis. Thde only problem is when KKKLinton gets in the mix and plays one tribe against the other. Before KKKlinton got invoved in 1992, there was no problems in Somalia.

WHY DON'T YOU GO STUDY A BOOK INSTEAD OF TYPING ON ONLINE FORUMS? WHY DON'T YOU JOIN YOUR KENYAN GHANIAN NIGERIAN TANZANIAN UGANDAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN IMPROVING THEIR COUNTRIES LIKE OBAMA'S FATHER DID?? SOFT HAIR DOESN'T BRING YOU FOOD OR PEACE, SORRY.
ONLY SOMALIS (IN NORTH KENYA AND NOW AS REFUGEES EVEN IN THE CENTRAL CITIES) AND SWAHILI (ON COAST MIXED WITH ARABS) HAVE EVER CLAIMED OUR FOUND PRIDE IN ASSOCIATING THEMSELVES WITH NON-AFRICANS. THE REST OF US ARE PROUD OF OUR PEOPLE AND WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED. WE ARE NOT ARROGANT, WE ARE STILL POOR, BUT THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT!!
Only the white man and Uncle Tom Americans claim that Somalis are not Africans. That is ridiculous.

The colonizers broke up the Somali nation to keep them weak. Somalia is the most homogenius nation in Africa with nearly 100% Muslim, all speaakimng the same language. The wite man could not leave that alone. So he did everything possible to keep Somalia from Uniting. When Siad Barre tried to Unite Somalia. KKKLinton sent in the CIA to bring him down. They have kept Somalia at war with itself ever since.

<quoted text>so true!!! you know what i am from ethiopia and it is amazing because the standards of beauty differ between here and there because here everybody is obsesed about this lightskined-darkskined thing.There it is all about attraction to the eyes...if the combination of your features and body fit and you look good to the eyes then u are beautiful.and it is not really about looks only its about how a lady presents herself,,,like she has to be well mannered,respectful,contained. you can ask any ethiopian and eritrean(same people by the way...just politics)they will tell you the most loved shade is "teyim"(in ethiopipia)"or kedereweiti"(in eritrea)same shade which is dark chocolate.In ethiopia the weloyes are considered the most beautiful and they are mostly "teyim" shade with beautiful smile.
And have you seen Miss Ethiopia 2009
fine-polished skin,curvy body(lady body),killer smile and a smart university student
here's a link to the picture

enough said!!!
It is insane. And it is the white man who makes these people think in terms of light skin/dark skin. There is no such thing in traditional Africa. They are bran washed by white racism.

<quoted text>hey there neighbour i am ethiopian and i grew up with somalis (well they make up around 5 million in ethipia-ogadenia) and i never heard any somali deny that they are african.yes they all want to be associated with the arab league but that has nothing to do with race but religion.they want to associate with them because they have islam in common which is a very big thing in somali life.
you have to know religion is a very big part of life in the horn.for example if you tell an ethipian in ethiopia that he/she is mixed with arab they will definetely be offended because islam is somehow considered rival to christianity(nowadays anyways with stuff you see on tv)they would rather if you tell them they are mixed with israel(which science proved not to be true and was only claimed by the royal family in the first place as a strategy so that they dont face opposition)but not because they want to be associated with white but because jesus and esp.the holy mary(big icon in ethiopia) were from that part of the world.
well if you ask me nobody there cares about color and features there is beautiful and not so beautiful.Africa comes in different shades from pale arabs to pitch black
Thank you, African. I know many Somalis. I have never seem or known one who is color crazy like these Uncle Toms are.

One reason I prefer Continetal Africans to Diaspora Africa is because my iownfamily has always been multi-color. We fit in in Africa. But these Unlce Toms and especially the Aunt jemimas wnat to trip off the complexion issye which we have never done. One of them evenasked me about white women as if I know about white people simply because we have multiple complexions. LOL!!! It made me so mad i wanted to coke somebody. The only contact we ever had with white people was way back in the 1700's. Nobody inmy famil even remmembers it. I am a historian and i discoveredc this only recently by studying history. LOL! Andthey think I know about white people simply because I admit to a few drops of white blood. Ridiculous. All of us have some white blood. But most are too stupid or too ignorant to know it, much less understand what went down.

you are so funny. How can you say Kenyans have curly hair and small nose?? You are just the same as west africans and south africans. I can't tell the difference between west africans, west africans and some east africans. When people talk about east africans they meant (ethiopians, eritreans, somalis, djiboutians and Sudanese) not about ( Kenyans, Rwandan,Burundi,Ugandan and south Sudan).
