Ethiopians tend to have lighter skins and ratchier hair. They also look different, their heads are smaller and they are considerably shorter.

I think the average Ethiopian male is around 5'5 (personal observation). The Ethiopian seems to have an elongated brow ridge, while we have a more subtle one and sharper cheekbones.

What do you mean by we dont want to hurt ethiopians? Are you asking for a distinction between somalis and ethiopians so you can attack somalis? LOL YOU FAIL loser because Ethiopia is made of 99 different tribes and they countless languages. Ethnic Somalis who live in Ogadenia are considered Ethiopians to the outside world because Ogadenia is (unfairly)apart of Ethiopia.

Also what a sad existence you must live. When the white man has oppressed and enslaved you in your own country you are looking to attack REAL black men and women who are bringing income to that piece of shit you call a country.

They smell like they've been playing with an unclean vagina and that isn't even a lie because I have nothing against them personally.

There are 3 types of Ethiopians more or less...

Nilotic-Omotic types in the West and Southwest of Ethiopia. These people are much darker than Somalis, have bigger noses, bigger jaws, kinkier hair, bigger heads and more muscular than Somalis.

Habesha types in the Central and North are Semitic-Cushitic mix breeds who look superficially like Somalis but are one or two shades lighter on average, have more hooked noses, kinkier hair, broader face, shorter height, and their women have bigger breasts than the Somali.

Cushitic types in the Central, South, and East look just like Somalis for the most part, hard to tell the difference.

I have been to both Ethiopia and Somalia and this is my observation.

If you want to know the difference between the Somalis and Ethiopians ask them one simple question. Where are you from? And they will answer you with pride.
