Name some Stereotypes evident among the various ethnic groups in Ethiopia.(remeber these are not truths, but rather comedic steriotypes made for fun).

Here are mine,

Amhara: Trickery, fake-ness

Oromo: Less inelegant, butter/milk addiction, love for horses, stronger people.

Tigray: Manipulative, always angry, cockiness/over self confidence, Illuminati of Ethiopia.

Guragay: Jews of Ethiopia, money money money, hard working, kitfo, shop owners, shoe cleaners.

Add some more.

According to you, a response to you is only to hurt you. Can't you imagine that it could be to correct you?

These stu*pid statements tell a story of the poster than the groups targetted to be stereotyped.
In my observation, countries which control their mouths about ethnic stereotypes have a more harmoniuos relationship.
