Are they mixed race?
And why do they hate other Africans? In particular West Africans and bantus? Just go to one of their forums and see how much they hate blacks there. they despise them more than any white racist I've ever had the displeasure of seeing online.
I've talked to a couple Somali friends of mine who've let me know on more than one occasion that they do not associate themselves with blacks, whom they also refer to as "jareers" (nappy-heads).
I was totally shocked to hear and see a people wioth members so dark-skinned who looked down upon blacks and black features-- let alond didnt even CONSIDER themselves BLACK!
when I asked them why-- they told me that blacks are ugly, and have nappy hair and wide noses, while they have soft hair and thin noses. They said they are different from other Africans and feel they should be their own race.
Once I asked them if the difference in their looks could be because they are mixed-- and they almost pulled KNIVES out on me! lol
Anyways-- what do you guys think? Mixed? Pure? they ARE in the arab league and are Islam fanatics and have even adopted islamic last names.
some make the argument that they are just a diverse part of Africa due to climactic changes-- but how could a people who look SO Arab and ACT so arab truly be considered PURE by other Africans? And if it was true- then why are these features not the norm in ALL populations in Africa and are only mainly concentrated in the Northern Areas-- where the Arabs came into occupy? It just doesnt make any sense, unless you mean to tell me that you think Africans always had and worshipped lighter skin, straight hair, and caucasian noses?
How do you guys feel about this?
