As a Somali, I'm interested in how my neighbors treated the Bantus. Were they enslaved like they were in Somalia? What does the general population of Ethiopians think of them? That does not include Westernized Ethiopians, I prefer cultured Ethiopians to answer.

Do you hate Bantus more than Eriterians and Somalis? When were they enslaved? How were they?

The Ogaden is not Ethiopian. It was given to you by your white masters, why would you be proud of that?

How is that racist? Stop throwing the word around loosely, it devalues it. I don't know why you hate the East of Africa's natives(cushites). The nilotes are immigrants who came into East Africa through South Sudan http://museumafrica.org/east.html#.UPGpXyevGS...

I believe you are a Galla. A different kind of Galla for that matter because they don't speak up against Bantus of Kenya who lost their lands to. may be they don't know their history or they blocked this fact of towering defeat fro their active memory. Instead, they brag being great Gallas who stole lands of central and northern Ethiopia.
My question is this a show of muscle to reassert a claim for their Kenyan lands they were pushed out of?

I am not from Ogeden, so I don't know the reasons why the Ogedens chose Ethiopia over the Bantu looking Somalis. There is no master-slave relationship in our history..could that be the reason?

Huolo is probably not even somali. Definetly a troll. And somalia doesn't have a slavery history either. You have to understand that the the arabs enslaved the bantus and brought them into Somalia. Somalis never did any slave raidings.

On what basis? Your dislike for me? Stop being emotional idiot, at least base your beliefs on facts. I wanted to see if a civil conversation can be made with Ethiopians but it seems like it can't. Your barbaric culture led you to be the poorest country in the world ever since you gain your independence. True Somalia is in shambles but we're in a civil war, what's your excuse? Your country is a sh1thole since the day it gained it's independence.

Your lands were given to by Europeans, how can you be proud of that? I guess the concept of "Pride" is nonexistent in Ethiopia.

You're right. No Somalis is racist. The millions of Somalis who enslaved Bantus are not Somali. Being racist automatically transfer you to a non-Somali.

I guess these are lies http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somali_Bantu

I guess most of the Somali Major clans are not Somali for enslaving Bantus. You're really are dumb. Just look at your comments, you're ignoring facts. I don't even think you're Somali lol, it's common knowledge to any Somali that addoons were our slaves.

They didn't at all, the majority of Ogadens wanted to be apart of Somalia. Your British masters gave the Ogaden to Ethiopians due to their obedience. Strangely enough your Bantu looking emperor(Menelik) claimed he was white http://www.ethiopianreview.com/forum/viewtopi...

So? And why are you calling them adoon, just shutup man. Why would somalis want any foreigners on their lands anyways. It's common knowledge that the arabs brought the bantus to somalia.

I think that both Amharas and Tigrians look more Bantu than Somalis.

Somalis? In the whole horn of africa, somalis are the least mixed because we are conservatives and shun marrying people of different ethnicities.

That is very possible, but the real Somalis look very Caucasoid, while Amhara and Tigrians look more Bantus, Meles zenawi, ring a bell? lol.
