what are the Somali fears of bantus in Somalia.
1. the Bantu population is increasing true today they constitute 10%. one million out of a population of approximately 10+millions Somalis. there are 3 millions Somalia diaspora/refugee. and about 12 millions Somalis in Ethiopia, Kenya and Djibouti. so the somalia Bantu are make up less than 2-3% of the overall Somalia population.
2. although they are small they farm some of the most fertile/arable land in Somalia especially along the shabelle and the juba and many Somali feel that just because their ancestors settle there. Somali Bantu have no legal right to the land so the issue is about land and the redistribution of land.
3. as Somalis were scattereed to four winds and they come across Bantu people and inevitable the distinction of between us and them become more pronounced. some Somalis began to paint all bantus with the same brush and come to view the Somali bantus as a trojan horse: a fifth column whose allegiance is suspect and who could be used against us in the future.
Viewing the Somali Bantu as a threat even a menace, I believe is short sight. first they alway remain small. 2nd if the Somalis want greater distribution of arable land than they will have to give the Somali Bantu greater social service. in the past there was discrimination in employment and education. if Somali bantus are given greater employment opportunities and they move into cities their population will go down. they'll feel more welcome and thus be loyal to the Somalia state. if however, we forceful redistribute the land and put them into gettoes like AA. their hate for us will only grow and they will become foot soldier of anyone who seeks to harm us. The way forward is toward greater justice.
the ulternative is gettoes with an anger underclass. where we either incarcerate them like AA or sterile them like the isrealis are doing to the Falashas in isreal or mass deportation or genocide.
we can also import lots of poor Indian women and breed the black out of the Somali Bantu lol. seriously disregard the last comment. so what do you guys think.
