This kind of morphological nonsense is just so 18th century.

What kind of nonsense are you rambling, you made a comparison with some fulani who don't in anyway resemble the majority of Ethiopians and say they have the same features xd

I as a offspring of Amhara parents from Gondar, i feel offendend by the comparison you made, myself and my family don't look like a woodabe fulani, don't have a big nose, we have narrow Kush nose, we speak a semitic language(Amharic) that is similar to Hebrew and Arabic, we have naturally weavy and soft hair and look naturel our own way. We don't look like anuaks, they don't represent the majority of Semitic and Cush speaking people of Ethiopia, Anuaks are nilotics and are 0,1% of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is biblical and historically consist of the people in North-Ethiopia Habesha people, Habesha people in Eritrea, Gurage people in South central Ethiopia(Southern branch), North eastern Sudan(Nubia area), Southern Egypt and Western Yemen. Nilotics like anuaks and bantu's like fulani don't look like Ethiopian(ancient Kush), Amhara, Tigray, Gurage, Nubians, Beja, Oromo, Somali and Al Akhdam(ethiopian descedants) from Yemen are.

Yes, yes, I know it is so offensive to be identified even in the slightest with so-called Sub-Saharan humans. We have a similar problem here in the U.S. with those darker and lighter than paper bags.

1ne Drop
It has absolutly nothing to do with colour, ofcourse we are sub-saharan African but that doesn't mean we all look the same, it's about the misrepresentation you gave about my country, you made look like anuaks is how most ethiopians look like which is not the case. Most Semitic and Cu****ic groups look similar and have mostly the same feature they make about 96%, then there's the bantu and nilotic minorty in the southern most regions near south-sudan and kenya, the anuaks included, who by the way most of them came to Ethiopia because of the South Sudanese independece war with Sudan in the 90s and now with the current civil war in their own country. They make up 0,1% of the population. It's about the misrepresentation.

Oh trust and believe, Ethiopians have quite the large noses as well along with the Somalis, Sudanese/South Sudanese, Eritreans, Somalis, and other Afro-Asiatics. Many of them look borderline South Asian (think the Indian Subcontinent) and yes, I've seen Ethiopians before. I'm from the Washington D.C. area here in the U.S., they're the largest Afrikan immigrant group around here.
