They look different.

Amharas and Tigrays have a generic Arabic/Cushitic look in their phenotype, Amharas tend to have large round eyes, point nose, and large foreheads. Tigrays are the same but they have square shaped foreheads and ears that stick out like Will Smiths ears.

Oromo's look a bit similar to the Somali's, they have sharp and high cheeks and uniquely shaped mouhts/jaws.

Gurage's can go either way, they can sometimes look Amhara, Tigray and Oromo.

Are you on halucinegens? You got to be dreaming up ideas. Not even close to being subjective.

I presented observable immages of masses, mind you a single person but masses, to draw objective conclusions from. yet, you close your eyes and make statements that have no reference to objectivity which is the basis of scientific conclusions.

The Gurage dance stands out. Any ideas on its origin?
The Tigray dance also doen't have relations with the rest, but it can be traced to South Arabia.

I agree completely. Ethiopians have the same look for the most part. It is not possible to differentiate one ethnic group from the other by just looking at their physical feature.

You agree completely. Is it 100%?

You seems to like asserting certain things being as fact without any bases to your assertion Alex. I would suggest that you should support your assertion of a certain points you like to make with some reference as a source so that we can learn, which was unknown to most of us. don't you agree?

is that really matters? I agree with you for the most part not 100%.....I was wrong for agreeing completely before. As far as I know Kunamas are not Omotic language speaking people but Nilo-Saharan.

Correction:
Kunama is rather in the Nilo-Saharan language famliy such as Nuer and Anuak, not in the Cushitic language.

Nope. You presented unclear videos of various songs representing different tribes, you do realize that those dancers dont have to actually belong to the tribe to be in the music video right? They all come form some dancing academy in Addis.
You clearly are trying to refrain from truths of the diversity of the Ethiopian tribes, sure we look similar, but even amongst ourselves their is phynotypic variations. Whats your agenda here?
Also your statement makes no sense, it doesn't apply at all to what I was saying at all.

Upgrade you computer. The video are clear on mine.

Professional music studios do not hire from one ethnic group only. They hire dancers from all. The videos conatain local dancers, rural amsses, children, teenagers, women and men.

Do not dream up false ideas that you can't support. Say things that are at least plausable, if not believeavble. Do not divide Ethiopian by race because there is no racial difference along language lines. I am aware individuals like you may exist.
My response is right on poit to your racial dislocation by misrepresentaion of Ethiopians.

Gojjam Gew...
&fe ature=related

Agews are everywhere in Gojja, Gondar, Wello and Tigray. Do the governments of Amara and Tigray protect their languages and cultures? Do Agew children learn primary school in their language in Amara and Tigray.

I just learned, the sound, tse, as in tsehai(sun, tsgie(rose) is an Agew specific. Amharic and Tigrinya borrowed adapted from Agew. Right?

amharas are of the most part of agew ancestry, tigryans too ,( but less than amhara and more semetic) but look wise, you can't even tell who is agew, amhara and maybe tigray! it is very hard to do! basically no difference at all.

Tembien is Agew; it seems they are loosing the language to Tigrinya while keeping the Agew dance culture, at least.
The other Agew related cushitic groups from which Tigray emerged may have died out long time ago but the Saho and Beja cushitic tribes are part of the Tigringa group evolution in Tigray and Eritrea.

Do you know whether Agew language is allowed in primary schools in Metekel and Awi region of Gondar?

Most sexier dances judged by level of contact between male and female dancers are:
1. Sidamo
2. Oromo
3. Amara
4. Tigray
Gurage, Welayta, hadiya, Dorze, GamuGofa female and male dance seperately. Not a good thing.
