The term "Black" was popularized to mean African American during the Black Power Movement. The word was a rejection of the name "Negro" which was imposed by "Whites." The naming was intended to polarize their ethnic group against "White" people as a whole, but more specifically in Colonial/Slave White Nations. When I say that it was "Popularized" I mean that it was reproduced in mass media around the world and branded to mean African American. Following this wave, the term "Black African" was being used by Europeans when referring to the news surrounding relatively recent emancipation of the former British, Dutch, French, etc... colonies across Africa. Keep in mind that this term "Black" has only been popularly used for the past 50 years or so.
Since Ethiopia was not colonized, nor was it in a position where its people were disempowered by white's and therefore could empathize with the polarization that came out of that relationship. So, to us, the people who were "Black" were the people originally from Africa who were in essence defined by the existence of disempowered relationship between themselves and "Whites".
Hope that helps.
I agree fully !

Ethiopians are not black, period. They look like white people painted black or with a tan. Race is more than skincolor. It's more about features. You can be darkskinned and still not be a negro. If a group of ethiopians leave Africa to populate the rest of the world, their skin will become ligheter in order to make more dvitamin in places where the sun is weaker. This is how whites evolved. You're our brothers. Distance yourself from negroes, who are a disgrace for earth.

You are nothing but a scum of the earth !! The white race is an evil bestial race that is destined to parish sooner or later! How could the first creation of God- The black man-- be associated with an evil in any shape of fourm ? Over our dade body !!!!

The term Habesha ((H)) refers to the South Semitic-speaking group of people whose cultural, linguistic, and in certain cases, ancestral origins trace back to those people who ruled the Axumite Empire and the kingdom known as D&#703;MT (usually vocalized Di&#703;amat).

Peoples referred to as "Habesha" today include the Amhara, Tigray-Tigrinya and Tigre ethnic groups of Ethiopia and Eritrea, who are predominantly Oriental Christians and have been since AD 332, with exception to Tigre who are predominantly Muslim. The Amhara and Tigray ethnicities combined make up about 33% of Ethiopia's population (ca. 24.6 million Amhara, 5.5 million Tigray), while the Tigrinya & Tigre combined make up 85%(55% plus 30% respectfully) of Eritrea's population (ca. 5 of 5.9 million). A broader definition of this term also includes segments of the Semitic-speaking Gurage peoples in the southwest and the Harari peoples in the east and southeast because of their strong historical links to the Amhara and Tigray.

In the broadest sense, the word Habesha may refer to anyone from Ethiopia or Eritrea, although some would exclude themselves from this association.
