Africa is a continent full of indegenous features, having features that are not broad does not make them European, thats the thing that is sad about we Africans we let outsiders define what is ours. Before we aquaint ourselves with others in our continent we let the Europeans educate us on what are " African features" "african body shapes" "african skin tones", its a shame though.

Yes I think Liya is very pretty.

And so what? Why don't you educate them if you know so much? That's what discussion forums are for!

Larger 20,

Just out of curiosity, what is your educational background?  I must say that your assertions that Ethiopians are a "mixture of white and African" and having never heard of any problems facing Ethiopia are baffling to say the very least.

It also never ceases to amaze me that so many West Africans believe that African features equal West African features.  Therefore, the physical features that are prevalent in other parts of our vast continent are somehow less African and are described as "European."

It's really sad.  I am often annoyed by the utter lack of knowledge that Westerners have about the African continent.  However, after reading many of the posts in this thread, it is clear that many Africans know very little about their continent.

No body will kill you to voice our your opinion provided it is not prejudism and not in violation of laws in your territory. If you're afriad to voice out your opinion, well I am just the opossite.

No one will kill you for saying your mind ok? Remeber u r in the United states where freedom of speach is widely respected. Do you need a body guard?

haha you are funny ok read this informal posting, maybe that should help, I have nothing against white men, I don't see why they should not be proud of the great things they are doing, What i am saying is that we africans should learn. Chinese people did it. jealousy will not help us. Something good is good and should be encouraged.

Regarding the ethiopians,, Check below for details

@ larger_20

LARGER_20, Stormfront is a WHITE NATIONALIST COMMUNITY! It's a "front" for white supremacist! It even says "White Pride World Wide" by a symbol that looks eerily like a swastika! Oh, god, it's kinda scary to have gone to that site. Did you know this when you gave me the link? Regardless, I can not go by their word. I don't trust bigoted people to relate or record history in a non prejudicial way. Please send me another link if available. (I want to know more about East Africa.)

But my original confusion was, how does what you just typed contradict anything that TX_longhorn said. Why the disagreement? Or maybe there isn't one. . .

Please read http://www.stormfront.org/whitehistory/hwr45.htm

Ethiopians are smart asses, tough like iron and resisted the white men during slavery in africa. Unlike nigeria and other african countries that sold their peopel to slavery. Ethiopia said no. They defeated the italians in the 17th centyury. They were the first country to get their freedom before south africa and other countries that joined later. After the creation of their independed state in the 16th century, the whites started visiting ethiopia and mixed up with them. The effect of this mixture is not too much  because of the dominant black population hyowever if the whites were allowed to be there for a longer time, the diffrence will be very clear like in south africa

Larger_20, I wasn't sure what you were trying to say here. What issue do you take w/ TX_longhorn's response. I don't think ya'll are saying different things, so I'm confused.

@ Skidoc

You know what? You're an . Why? B/c of the way you just handled this conversation. Allow me to recap: You stated your opinion. I stated my opinion and asked questions. Then you stated your opinion and asked questions. But when I responded all you could say was "I could not even make any sense out of your looooong prose."

It takes a real man, scratch that adult, to admit that they've been outmatched. It also takes an adult to concede an argument or to simply say[i] "I stand by my beliefs even though I can not prove them as I previously implied/stated."[/i] Adults do this for three reasons (1) He/she respects the person he/she is addressing. (2) He/she respects him/herself. or (3) Both (1) and (2).

Every adult has said/done this in their lifetime. You apparently are not that person. I hope you grow as a person. If you don't respect me & don't want to converse with me, as I said before, "fine" but spare me your bullshit because I'm not the one.

One thing you got right: You're not on my level.

But I knew that already.

Ethiopians i think are mixuture of white and africans due to the history of that country so he is write back saying that she looks cassusian somehow. Ever head that ethiopia is corrupt or have u heard ethiopia is facing serious problems other african countires are facing? Their economony is growing like the ghana economy. Neverthless this notion has nothing to do with being mixture of white and blacks. Ethiopians are smart as hell, i have two in my school, they r just too smart and beating the whites hands down and they r not into making too much noise like loud mouth nigerians

Chinani, you seem to engage in a lot of baseless arguments here and there. I don't have to talk much. If you are someone who reads widely, you will definitely know what I'm talking about. Except if you just want to close your eyes to the facts. How come Liya Kebede is the very first African woman to be spokesgirl for Estee Lauder after all these decades? How come Agbani Darego is the only black to have won Miss World and that came after decades of the contest history? Don't you think that has to do with the fact that African women with African features are not widely accepted as being beautiful? Go and search for list of women considered to be the most beautiful in the world, how many Africans are there? that's why I said it's sad but true. Of course, African women are beautiful but how many people agree? Even the african women themselves do not believe in themselves, they try as much as possible to look Western, isn't it true? Note that I said it depends on what each one considers as beautiful but the widely accepted is the Western one. I never said we all agree, so don't quote what I never said.

Liya Kebede is also a Good Will Ambassador for the UN. She tries to help women and children. I read an article about her in Vogue (or was it Vanity Fair?). Anyhow, I'll try to find, then post the link. But, she's been working with charities and self-help groups in Ethiopia for a long time now. She started almost as soon as she got her 1st big time modelling gig so this isn't a publicity stunt or anything. The lady seems to have her head on her shoulders. She's married and has a son who's about 6. I read a couple years ago that she lives in Chi-town. Chi has a large Ethiopian community.
