Why we call ourselves In such a low level degrading name we came from kings and queens High society. The name habesh was givin to us by arab slave traders who took many of our brothers and sisters to be servants and maides for the arab sultans they even took us as far us india. They loved the abashi women they raped and converted them into islam poloitical religion. ABISINIA IS AN ENGLISH FOR HABESHIA SO do not be fooled You are Tobians Ithiopi Kusi sono of Itiopia the King of the old golden dayz. No more Habesha it means my slave my agelgay ,Serrategna,Ashiker. So stop it now.

Habesha (Habeshim in Hebrew): mixed in Arabic referred to the Habeshas of Ethiopia because of their "mixed" look even though they weren't mixed.

Baria: The Semitic Ethiopic term for slave usually referred to Africans of non-Cushitic or Hamitic descent. A Niolote or Bantu.

Adoon: The Somalu Cushitic word for slave, usually referred to non-Habesha and non-Cushitic and non-Hamitic or Semitic peoples of Africa.

There's your definition hoped you enjoy!:)

There are no Bantu's in Ethiopia.
I am going to start to act like the fat bleach faced donkey who calls herself professor so she can see sees what ignorance sounds like..

Hey fat no life pig.
Professor is spelled this way... NOT ( Proffesor.

See what ignorance sounds like...

Non citizen a term used to refer to a Somali like The Proffesor in Ethiopia and Kenya hahahahha

Refugee a Indo European word used to refer to Somali like The Proffesor

Ungovernable an indo European word used to refer to a Somali like The Proffesor

Inferiority complex an Indo European word which is often used to describe Somali's like The Proffesor

Number ONE failed state in Africa an Indo European term used to describe the biggest state The Proffesors people created.

See what ignorance sounds like...

Like I said be careful how you present what happens in your culture to a larger audience. Lest you offend people who may be part of those groups who are more powerful now and can take you out!!!

They dynamics of the region have changed and Bantu's and Niolites today are were you were 1000 years ago.

If they are wicked they could do the same to you!!

@ The Professor
Ethiopians are not 'Serpent People'. I am disgusted that you would associate the people of Ethiopia with the devil's filthy creature.

@ Kemhet
Firstly, do you speak Arabic?
Secondly, I assume you are not Christian? The only 'Lost souls' are the ones who bow down to false beings, there is only one God. I pray for all that tread such blind paths. I am just giving my opinion, I don't intend to convert anyone or judge any one based on their religion....it's your choice but to put it out there I don't believe it is right, nor can I respect such sin.

As far as the main topic, even if Habesha does mean slave, Ethiopians are nothing but that. They descend from greatness, and that, I look up to. I have such admiration for this strong nation.

-Peace & Love to Ethiopia, God Bless.

Habesha: Mixed race are you on crack? Probably are since you don't understand it. Its Semitic, Habeshas like the Tigray and Amhara, Gurage, and Harari speak Semitic languages and it means "mixed" you wouldn't since you're not Habesha or Ethiopian at all!

HABESHA people are proud to be called habesha to each other....its a unique name (habesha) given to christians in ethiopia.

If the word habesha was offensive as you guys say(slave) the word would have been droped long ago.

I have asked an arab, in the past, why habesh? and who are habesh? all they say is habesh are ethiopians and christians/infidels/unbeliever s

NO it doesn't mean Slave... i'm an arab
arabs called Ethiopia "Habasha" which is because a tribe called "Habashet" immigrated from saudi arabia and lived there in Ethiopia so the name is taken from the tribe name...
has nothing to do with slaves

Habesha is a word used to refer to both Eritreans and Ethiopians, or, more specifically, to the Semitic-speaking inhabitants of those countries. The first inscription to refer to "Habesha" is a Sabaean South Arabian inscription ca. 200 AD referring to king GDRT of Aksum (an ancient Kingdom located in modern Ethiopia and Eritrea) as king of the city of Aksum and the "clans of Habesha." As Sabaic and Ge'ez (the ancient language and alphabet of Ethiopia, still used) it was unvocalized, it is written as "h.bs't" (put the dot under the h and the apostrophe on top of the s) and later as vocalized as h.abs'aat (put the dot under the h, apostrophe over the s, and make the two a's a long "a" - meaning an a with a line over it), which evolved into today's Habesha. The term was translated by the famous Christian King Ezana of Aksum in the mid 4th century as "Ethiopia" in Greek, which previously referred to Africa south of Egypt in general, or Nubia (in modern-day Sudan) in particular. The term is not, as commonly assumed, of Arabic origin, but of local Semitic origin. Spurious Arabic etymologies tend to connect the term with the meaning "mixed," on the false assumption that the peoples of the Horn of Africa are the product of African-Arab mixes.

The term was also used by the Turks as "Habesh" or "Habeshistan" to refer to their small territory taken from Ethiopia in 1557, comprising of the port cities of Massawa and Hergigo (Habeshistan also included Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, the cap...

LOL

The word habesha was recorded way before of Mohammed birth and therefore way before the Quran was written down.

And it does not mean mixed people. The arabs of Saidi Arabi and Yemen, using that meaning "mixed people", since they know habesha came from south west Tihama, and that they have migrated in Eritrea, north Ethiopia, and mixed with the native cushitic people.

Don't use Quran as source to identify habesha.
