Dirty tribalism

Read this from wiki

"Because of their farmer-craftsmen history, which some Somalis consider to be lower caste occupations, they are sometimes viewed as being of a lower caste or class."

Thus, the tribalist Somalis believed that a man's job defines his worth... Thus, if you have a job that is deemed inferior your worth is also inferior...

Overall, a dirty form of tribalism...

One of the greatest evils of somali society and it's traditions...The greatest age old hate of the somali community for a part of theirs like the untouchables"The Shuddarhs" in India...This should be abolished like the caste system india by Gandhi along with Tribalism...

Tribalism the second most evil thing in the somali socieity in somalia and less where in the world today...which is like cutting the leg of your child for him/her to grow/develop better in life or have some kind of a social security....how much does that child loose....How much does that child gain....ask yourself...How much have you gained or been gaining....how much have you been loosing....The last part is easier to answer partly....you have no nation...no country to call home...you are weak....you are more alone than you may think....you are more a shame to yourself than you will ever know as it difficulty to accept your ultimate loss caused by no other than you...your father...your uncle...your grandfather...your great grandfathers.....because that road has led you here........

What will you do?...what can you do?....somalis will see the light if they love their childern more than they do themselves....the future more than their past or present....it is a choice that must be made....it is a choice that hasn't been made today...during the last 20 years...during their independence....before their independence......like the grasshoppers that gather nothing what so ever for the winter....that is more than sure to come....this was more than sure to come.........Nothing that we stood for....stand for...were hardly matters today as "every donkey says his ancestors were horses"....

From what I heard, their ancestral father ate a dead animal that died on its own...which makes them dirty as people stereotype them. It's really sick.

I think we somalis tell a lot of fictional stories like my grand father use to fly or we were super poeple and no one messes with us who fight like jackie chan or king fu or we are originated far where no one asks how mlike reer Hamar or Ashraf or Oman or Turk muwald, Habash-Arbeed but these poeple were honest and didn't create that fictional characters , honest they are one of the best Somalis you can ever meet , it is sad to see these things happen in our society.
All these things are down to ignorance and educated Somalis see it alwats different..

why you bring this matter really now.
Nobody can ask Somalia and Somalis what and why they did right now because of the situation on Somalia territory.
If it is necessary they must wait after the war in Somalia.
this is not the time to recognize anything at all

Forget the ancestral part.....Would it be right or wise for someone to be considered sub human because of their food source and be treated as so for centuries.....???..it says a lot about the people...that created, maintain and practice this stereotype.....you sunconsicously agree, believe, support,sponsor the same or more...otherwise you would have phrased the topic heading differently...
Is that fair...is that just....is that reasonable...is that human...is that educated or broad minded or open minded.......just question that I hope instigate reason, rational question of self...to better the self....to develop the self....the you can and could always do better provided.........

Besides the fact...they are the ones being treated like the untouchables without provocation right from the start...whatever century that was hardly makes what you suggesting anything close to the reality of the negatives effects it has on them....(no positive effect what ever)....they are a small minority in the somali society....there is nothing healthy or anything close to that......

I am sure you would be the first one crying the most if it was the people of Ogaden being treated as they are....by the rest of the somali community.... It is foolish to consider it OK...when you are not subjected to those evils.... You are acting exactly as the Ethiopians do toward your people in the same manner the jews do towards the Palestians......you should know better.......your peoples suffering should have tought you better......You support or stand for your land...your people are those also just words from the confront of your presence in some one else's backyard....with security,opportunity and above all freedom....

You need to take a deeper look at yourself sincerely because didn't get it at all....

It all down to ignorance yes so Education education and education.
The massages of a lot of poeple here makes sense and it is the reason why we come here also it gives us a reason and hope we can be a nation again.
The question is not only to discuss about this matter and how it happened in the past but to realise it and ask what can we do about it as somalis ? start it your self doing better ...

You can marry them as long as they are muslim and your parents cant do sh!t. I don't know about their founding fathers eating dead animals or what ever thats going around. From what I know it has to do with economics. They mostly do labor jobs that is thought as low in somali and most of them are nomads and herd animals while everyone moved into the city. So they are considered unsophisticated and low status, when in fact they should own somali cus they stayed true too their original somali culture and didn't sell their soul to the dunya. Another claim that is often made about them is that they don't know their tribe. Their father was musa deriyeh. And don't use midgan cus thats a very offensive term.
