Ethiopians: Somalians have had to fight the Italians British, French, Cubans, Ethiopians &more because everyone wants control of Somalia BARTAMAHA, COM chakabars Colonialism of Somalia 馃嚫馃嚧 : 1840-1960 Between 1840 and 1886, the British East India Company established a series of trade treaties with various Somali chiefs. Italy also had a hand in the early establishment of Somalia and marked out the boundaries of Italian Somaliland in the south between 1897 and 1908. Ethiopia claimed the Ogaden region of western Somaliland in 1897. The first uprising against colonialism occurred when Somalis sought to push the Ethiopians out of the Ogaden region but then expanded to target European colonists as well. The Dervish State, headed Mohammed Abdille Hassan, an Ogaden himself who the British referred to as 鈥淢ad Mullah,鈥 conducted a religious-based war of resistance against the Ethiopians and British from 1899 to 1920, resulting in the death of nearly one third of northern Somalia鈥檚 population. Great Britain defeated Hassan in 1920. Italy maintained control of Italian Somaliland as a part of its African empire (including Ethiopia and Eritrea) until 1941. During WWII Great Britain also took over these areas and ruled them as military protectorates until 1949, at which time the newly formed United Nations granted Italy a trusteeship over most of present-day Somalia. The British maintained a trusteeship over what is today the self-declared state of Somaliland. While the Italians dedicated significant effort towards developing their colony, Great Britain took a more hands-off approach to governance, leaving more responsibility in the hands of local leaders but also providing less by way of infrastructure. These distinctions are often cited as underpinnings of the incompatibility that would arise between the two areas. This colonial history, in addition to other dynamics, is also seen to play a role in the subsequent, contrasting levels of stability of Somalia and Somaliland. chakabars

Ethiopians: Handstands and fruit in Ethiopia kabars Robel loves fruit just as much as me! Just stopped off in Addis few a few days. Remember I did that boxing match a few months ago and we built the hospital in Kinshasa... Well a few months prior to that I went to Addis to establish a relationship with Meseret, an amazing humanitarian organisation, founded & run by Ethiopians in Addis. We had such a good time with the children, that I said that I want to support them and work with them. So we are going to Twin Meseret with Iheartafrica.org so that we can show the children in Congo, Addis and vice versa. Language might be difficult as Lingala and Amharic are very different, but I don't speak either lol. So I brought them some money from the boxing match and a personal donation from an African Queen. Also fruit! Meseret work with orphans & women who have been raped & have aids & Prostitutes, this is a big problem in Addis, the women are so beautiful that men from all over the world come to abuse their beauty... Meseret help them to start their own businesses, put them through education, help them to practice group economics and lift themselves and their families out of poverty. I want to do this too as I love women and don't understand why so many men disrespect women everyday. Well I kinda do, it's because of an inherent inferiority complex, upon which men built a superiority complex, which is just another term for mental illness. But this isn't a social science and psychology lesson lol. Any money that you give to me, I will use to benefit women and children in Africa. chakabars

Ethiopians: Because you need a cute Somali baby on your timeline, have a blessed day a @chaka ban Because when you tell a story you should tell the full story. There is suffering in Somalia right now, many people don't have access to food or water. We are trying to change that, we don't make a business out of helping the people, but we do it out of humanity. The same humanity I extend to all people suffering anywhere on this earth. Many people told me Somalia is too dangerous, the people are crazy, it wouldn't help to come here... Etc But I am no different to any of these people, so I won't hide behind my passport or the privileges, that I never asked for anyway. We need to treat all humans as equal, no matter where they are from or which belief system they follow. So many people think of Somali people and think of pirates. They don't speak of the colonisation by the British, the Italians and the French, the massacres that the Ethiopians lead against the Somali people, or how the Russians and the Cubans & Ethiopians went to war with the Somalia people in 1964. They never speak about North Americas involvement in keeping Somalia at war. They don't speak of the pipeline that Kenya and Ethiopia want to run through Somalia. Or how Libya and Yemen fought against the Somali people. Or how nuclear waste was dumped off the coast of Somalia by the Mafia, poisoning Somali children and fish. Or how many of the Gulf states are complicit in arming & funding the terrorists in Somalia. Then there was conflict and civil war... Or how the casualties of all of this are little babies like this one. They rarely speak of the beauty of the people, how hospitable they are, how friendly and welcoming they are. I got so many hugs and smiles. I didn't meet one person who was scary or aggressive. Not saying they don't exist, but please, tell the full story. The 馃嚫馃嚧 people deserve to be properly represented, they are so beautiful and need you to see them as humans, just like you see me... chakabars

Ethiopians: Ethiopian Runner Crowned World Athlete of the Year TOYOTA AYANA BELUING 2015 @17th soulia4 After landing within three seconds of the 5000m world record last year and striking gold in the event at the World Championships, the conventional wisdom was that Ayana might finally eclipse compatriot Tirunesh Dibaba's eight-year-old 14:11.15 world record. She did eventually shatter a world record, but not over the distance everyone expected. Ayana showed strong form early, opening her season with a dominant 3000m victory at the IAAF Diamond League series opener in Doha, winning in 8:23.11 after a 65-second final lap. 鈥淚t was a very good race for me,鈥 said Ayana, who won by more than three seconds and came up just 0.47 shy of the national record she set last year. 鈥淢y mind is already on Rio." She also seemed preoccupied with fast times. Sixteen days later, she dominated her first 5000m outing of the season, coming within five seconds of the world record with a 14:16.31 performance in Rabat, at the time the fifth fastest ever. Ten days later she came even closer at Rome's Olympic Stadium where she clocked 14:12.59, the second fastest of all time and just 1.44 seconds shy of Dibaba's record.But it was her next outing, at the Ethiopian 10,000m Olympic Trials race in Hengelo, that caught many off guard, and which signalled her true Rio Olympic intentions. Running in her debut over the distance, Ayana dominated the contest and cruised to a 30:07.00 victory, the eighth fastest performance of all time and the fastest debut in history. Among those she beat was Tirunesh Dibaba, the two-time Olympic champion in the event, who suffered her first career defeat over the distance. Suddenly, Ayana was the woman to beat in two events in Rio. In Rio, Ayana managed to deliver the best possible kick-off to the athletics competition. In the 10,000m final which was held during the morning session of the opening day, she broke away from the pack just after half way and forged on to shatter the world record, clocking 29:17.45. "I never thought that this would happen," said Ayana, whose stunning performance eclipsed the 29:31.78 record set by China's Wang Junxia in 1993, less than two years after Ayana was born. It was one of the oldest women's records . 17thsoulja
