Ethiopians are African, period. They are known to be quite beautiful. Africa has beautiful men and women all over the continent. Ethiopians look different from West Africans or South Africans because they live in a different part of the continent. It's just that simple. Why do Italians look different from Germans? Why do Russians look different from Spaniards? They just live in different parts of Europe.

Yeah, you gotta understand, there's more genetic diversity in Africa than in the rest of the entire world. . . . COMBINED.

That means that Africans are the most diverse.

People have have a very narrow idea of what Africans look like because West Africans mostly populate The Americas, but there's no one "African" look.

There are ca 80 different ethnic groups in Ethiopia (depending on how you count). The largest groups are Oromo, Amhara, Tigray, and Somali.

They are Africans, as far as anyone knows. The rest of humanity (eurasians) probably descended from East African populations. Amharas, Tigrays and some other groups speak Semitic languages related to Arabic. The original Semitic languages may have their origin in Ethiopia.

Quote:

Amharas and Tigrays often look noticeably light-skinned with more European-like facial features, compared to West Africans. But there are many other ethnic groups in Ethiopia.

There are many international fashion models (e.g. Liya Kebede) who are Ethiopian, and they are pretty well known.

Actually, most of the Ethiopian women that I have met are quite dark-skinned, and quite beautiful, as are many African women. Nyanna, you would be wise to meet as many African women as you can. I am certain that your self-esteem and self-worth would dramatically increase.

Just for the record I don't think any skin colour or hair type is "better" or necessarily more beautiful than any other.

If more people appreciated darkskin, round nose, kinky hair, and full lipped black women than these threads would never descend into light vs dark. People are always showing appreciation towards the african women who have a mixed look and NEVER appreciate the beauty of west african looking women that look just black. of course this is going to make some of us salty and mad if the whole world thinks you are ugly because you are black
