I had to laught at what you just wrote. in your little mind because ethiopia recieved help from britian to fight fasisst italy after a 5 year of occupation it is not considered ethiopian victory? well in that case half of the world who received helped from armerica to fight nazi german which included great britain itself as well as occupied france and russia were also not not the victors of ww2? take a good look at this and tell me where does it say great absyiinia was colonized?

and here are brave ethiopian warriors which included mulsims as well who waged guerilla war throughout the entire occupation until receiving help from britian.

Ethiopia was defeated by Italy at the time when Great Britain drove them out of east Africa. period. and I still contend that Europeans conquered Ethiopia through RELIGION and DEPENDENCE. European nations built Ethiopia's infrastructure from A to Z.

I heard one African call Ethiopia "the who** of Africa." Ethiopia is totally dependent on foreign nations for its survival...look at what Asians are doing for Ethiopia right now...

there are African nations that were colonized longer then Ethiopia and they are WAY more independent...

did you just tell me tht ethiopia a country that practices ORTHODOX christianity with one of the oldest churches along with the ones in syria and egypt was conquered by EUROPEANS through religion who themselves were pagan during ethiopias conversion? even catholisism which is the second oldest form of christianity was rejected in ethiopia many centuries ago not only ethiopia but all afro asiatic people in africa who were mostly muslim were also not effected by colonialism in terms of religion and germanic protestanism or roman catholicism was only forced upon people of bantu origin in western and central arfrica just as african americans were converted to protestant christiastiy. you say ethiopia is more dependent than colonized nations but yet you failed to mention ethiopia has been involved in war and affected by drought in the last century more than any of the colonized nations and you also forgot to mention other counties like russia and china have suffered from much worse famine in the last century than ethiopia and somalia combined killing 6 million and an estimated 45 million respectively while the ethiopian 1983-85 famine has killed an estimated 400,000 people. After all that ethiopia is still doing better than half of the continent and the other colonized countries you hear about are still largerly economically controlled by western corporation that remnants of colonial powers while you will not see these foregin entities in ethiopia are any of the non bantu speaking regions giving an illusion that they are poorer, this is also a phenomena that happens in middle eastern countries who are hostile towards foreign powers and therefore get little investors and so they seem poor if they don't have oil or involved in war (iraq, afghanistan, pakistan, india..etc) these are all considered third world countries although they have rich history but just happen to reject the current western controlled capistalist system. but overall they are in control of their own destiny as is ethiopia, completely contradicting your suggested notion that ethiopia is "dependent on foregin nations." Pease read a book or two to raise you IQ from 80 to at least 85 before we can have a normal discussion.

I think you are just jealous of ethiopias beauty, history, culture and its brave heroes and the fact that it is the opposite of what you want it to be.

no Afro-American or African American has a reason to be jealous of some third world country. we are the richest, most educated most popular and accomplished group of "black" people on planet earth.

we have had our struggles here with institutionalized racism but we still fight and look out for other "blacks" in this world.

If the question is whether or not a sufficiently corrupt and atavistic african can be recognized by the white powers that be as a particularly useful lackey to kiss out out their azzes and act as a pawn to further western intersests..
The answer is..Yes.
Most of subsaharan africa is a patchwork of shtholes..where day to day life for ordinary africans is very very hard.

The thing that gets to me about threads like this is most people knew it was started by a troll,yet that knowledge didn't stop the trading of insults going on 5 years now. I am sure the agent provocateur must have read the same fables I did as a child. One in particular was about a brave little tailor who encountered 2 giants in his travels. The fearful tailor devised a plan to get past these giants. The plan was to alternately throw a rock at either giant while they were sleeping. Each giant in turn got angry with the other thinking he had thrown the rock. To cut a long story short, the tailor went merrily on his way while the 2 giants proceeded to destroy each other.

Who told you christianity was imposed on non HOA africans? You can not impose a belief. Ethiopia is still dependent on international food aid to this day since band aid in 1984 The rate at which ethiopia is leasing out it land to foreign countries to grow food for their country, will not break circle of dependence in international food aid.

Yes, of course, Ethiopia was conquered by Europeans, And today Ethiopians adore and worship European people.


As you can see in this video, Ethiopians love and worship White people.

Ethiopia wasn't colonized but occupied from 1936 to 41 i think. They never had full control of the country. they did contribute a little to Ethiopia's infrastructure but Menelik II started it after the first Ethio- Italy war in 1896 in which we defeated them. They came back with poison bombs etc in the second war the between 1896 - 1936 there was a movement to modernization by Ethiopian king Menelik II and Haile Selassie I. Yes current Ethiopia/Africa are dependent but we are trying to free ourselves. As for Christianity it's not a "white religion" or "European" even though the European image they and most of the world use is their invention.

And saying AAs are doing better than As as if we are supposed to be sad about it?? I wish all black people success!! no need to compare I hope even more and more AAs succeed it's in my interest for all black to do good.

Discussing history? Telling Ethiopians they were colonized, and they worship white people, or insisting Serena Williams' West African features is manly
is more akin to slander than a discussion of history.
