Aren’t you glad that the formerly white-bread Twin Cities of Minnesota now enjoy the strength of Diversity? From Fox9 in Minnesota:

Protesters march onto I-94 in St. Paul in response to unrest in Ethiopia after death of singer
Published 8 hours

ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) – Protesters marched onto I-94 in St. Paul Wednesday evening in response to the unrest in Ethiopia.

Deadly protested have broken out in the country after a famous singer, Hachalu Hundessa, was shot dead. Hundessa, who was killed on Monday was known as a prominent voice in anti-government protests that led to a change in leadership in 2018, with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed taking office. Hundessa wrote songs that were about the of the Oromo ethnic group in Ethiopia.

For about nearly two hours, demonstrators gathered on westbound I-94 before getting off on Lexington Avenue and moving north.

Getting stuck on the freeway in Minnesota for 2 hours is a small price to pay for being dragged into a dispute between ethnic groups in the highlands of Ethiopia over horse thievery in 1886. From a BBC article on the murdered Oromo singer:

Two years later, he released a powerful single, Maalan Jira? (What existence is mine?), referring to the eviction of Oromos from Addis Ababa and its surrounding areas, after the government decided to expand the boundaries of the city.

For Hachalu, the 2015 displacements showed that history was repeating itself.

Menelik II on a stolen(?) horse

That’s boring, but the next part is so esoteric it’s fun:

He shared the view of Oromo historians that what is currently known as Addis Ababa was once the home of the Tulama clans of the Oromo, and they were forced out by Emperor Menelik II.

In June, Hachalu angered the emperor’s supporters after he accused Menelik II of stealing the horses of Oromos – who see themselves as gallant warriors and horsemen – when he established Addis Ababa as his seat of power, and Ethiopia’s capital in 1886.

Okay, so the reason you couldn’t get home from work before your kids went to bed in St. Paul, Minnesota today was because an Oromo singer insulted the memory of Emperor Menelik II by accusing him of horse thievery in Abyssinia 134 years ago.

See, it all makes sense.

If only Twitter hadn’t banned Hakan Rotmwrt because he could explain it all to us. I tried to look up Evelyn Waugh’s explanation of the events, but I couldn’t follow it. Only Hakan can do it justice.

By the way, Menelik II (Menelik I was the son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba), was a hero to Black Power movements around the world because he defeated the Italian invaders at Adwa in 1896.

And then they came for Haile Selassie

The statue of Ras Tafari, the former emperor of Ethiopia and icon of Rastafarians, was smashed up in Wimbledon in London, where the emperor spent his 1936-1940 exile during the Italian occupation of Ethiopia. Mostly Peaceful Oromo Protesters are suspected.

Fortunately, the moment White Supremacy is smashed once and for all, all the peoples of the Earth shall live in peace … well, except for the Oromos and the Amharas, of course.

    Think about it: horses were not only the main mode of transportation but were essential for farming and all other kinds of fields that required the kind of strength a man didn't have. Losing a horse could not only destroy your livelihood but kill you if you can't harvest enough crops for the winter. And if you can't? Well hopefully there's a store within walking distance because you can't ride a horse there.

    That actually makes me wonder how much of a household budget a horse took up (buying, maintaining, etc) vs a car today. Horses are a lot more maintenance and you have to either buy a breed a new one when the horse can't work regularly, though you'll only need to do that every 20-25 years

    It is kind of amusing to think about people being ready to go to war over something that happened 134 years ago in a far-off land, but from the point of view of a naturalized citizen or a foreigner, the passionate preoccupations of Americans with the kind of discussions on Fox News and with the worship of the Great Trump is about equal.

    I wonder whether there will be a Trumpista movement in the USA a hundred years from now and who will be the Bob Marley who will serve as the prophet of his return.

Here, the cause often is “mattress in lane” or “ladder in lane.” Recently a traffic reporter announced a “ladder in lane” jam, and then added, in a frustrated tone, that this was the fifth one he had heard of IN THE PAST HOUR. (I don’t know if he was terminated for revealing the magnitude of the problem, and the implication as to its demographic source.)

    And by the way, regarding Evelyn Waugh..,Time magazine listed him on its list of famous female writers.

    Similarly, shiite Iran has no problems supporting sunni Palestinians.

    True. Ethiopia has potential that no other black African nation has. I think the most important reason for that is that Bantu genes and culture do not define the nation.

    Ethiopia's 2 biggest problems hindering it reaching its potential are Islam and the decadence of post-Modern secular, multicultural, Globo-Capitalism - i.e. the Anglo-Zionist Empire and its toadies.

    The Oromos emerged onto the Ethiopian historical scene since roughly 1540 -- as fearsome and ruthless invading barbarians from the south. They did not have any literary tradition of their own, however, but until around 19oo were only written about by the literate Ethiopians, mostly the Christian Amhara and Tigray, and to a much smaller extent also by the Muslims centered on the eastern city of Harar. The literary tradition of the Orthodox Ethiopian Christians reaches back into the first millenium.

    This historical achievement gap still irks the Oromo collectively, even though today there are many accomplished Oromo in Ethiopia -- heck, the Ethiopian prime minister is one of them -- with many of them virtually indistinguishable to the outsider from Amhara.

  12. …a dispute between ethnic groups in the highlands of Ethiopia over horse thievery in 1886

    “ Eritreans got very offended if anybody guessed that they were Ethiopians”

    They have very dark skin but fairly caucasoid faces similar to Egyptians, north Sudanese and south Arabians. The Oromo look more Kenyan, classic African but with softer features than Bantus. Ethiopia is a mix of the two types.

    While in Africa Eritrean skin is as dark as any in SSA, under the weaker sun of Switzerland they end up looking kind of like Indians and mulattos, though with a lot of physical diversity. I see one lady that looks like LA congresslady Karen Bass and another that could be Kamala’s sister.

    Dads teach kids how to control themselves when, right or wrong, they don’t get what they want. Without a competent, the child will tend to become reflexively obstinate towards authority figures, and lack self-control. Black kids acutely suffer from the same problem.

    Not having dads gets them shot. Not having dads gets them fired. Not having dads produces divorces. Because these poor kids can’t hold their shit together when frustrated In the adult world. Dads teach that. Moms just don’t. Not really their job, and too many aren’t great at it if they try.

    We can’t have general racial equality without fathers. Their poorly conditioned unwanted offspring will be broken by the inevitable machinations of life, because their childish "nature" overrules the tragic lack of "nuture."

    And that’s on you, lesbian couples, and absent black men having kids they don’t want. Lesbian couples with no man to give the child emotional perspective. Ain’t no government or laws that can fix that shit.

    New Hampshire has no sales tax or income tax.

    In a women's prison there must be a danger that she will corrupt vulnerable young inmates, so perhaps she will be kept in solitary.

    Hopefully they will put her on suicide watch so that she cannot cheat the gallows like her erstwhile paramour.

    Typically, ethnicities that hate each other back home all move to the same neighborhoods because all like to shop at the same ethnic grocery stores and maybe go to the same hair salons. For example, in my old neighborhood, the Eritreans got very offended if anybody guessed that they were Ethiopians, because they were at war with Ethiopia back home, but they have virtually the same tastes in food, hair styling, and clothes, so both groups cluster in the same neighborhoods in Chicago.

    Foods don’t unite Levantines, they have competing claims about who invented what and which version is better. For the most part this is pure tribalism (Greek, Turkish, Arabic [and presumably “Israeli”] coffee are the same thing), though in some cases there is difference (Lebanese baklava is superior to Greek because of the more restrained use of honey, Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains).

    Israeli "couscous" has a completely different history than real couscous. In its early days, Israel had a (democratic) socialist economy and socialist economies are always short of hard currency for some mysterious reason, including hard currency that can be used to buy imported foodstuffs (the E. Germans went for 40 years without seeing a banana).

    At the same time, they brought a whole bunch of Sephardic Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, etc. into Israel. Rice is a staple food of Sephardic cuisine but it doesn't grow in Israel. These Arabic speaking immigrants, who were just an annoying bunch of uneducated brown buggers to the Ashkenazi socialist founders of Israel (sort of the Israel version of Mexicans), kept asking for rice so that they could cook dinner, because they were not into eating potatoes and buckwheat groats like their (distant) Ashkenazi cousins. The Ministry of Finance said no way - we are not going to spend our scarce and valuable hard currency reserves on buying rice for you filthy buggers - you can eat dirt as far as we are concerned, if you don't already. (The Sephardic Jews of Israel hate hate hate educated left wing Ashkenazis to this day.) The wise Ben Gurion ordered that the (socialist) pasta factory produce a suitable rice shaped pasta substitute (made from wheat flour) that would satisfy the dirty Arab-Jews and thus "Israeli couscous" was born. (It was not a very good substitute). Later it came to be loved by American chefs for some strange reason. Meanwhile in Israel it is eaten today mainly by young children.

    “ Eritreans got very offended if anybody guessed that they were Ethiopians”

    They have very dark skin but fairly caucasoid faces similar to Egyptians, north Sudanese and south Arabians. The Oromo look more Kenyan, classic African but with softer features than Bantus. Ethiopia is a mix of the two types.

    While in Africa Eritrean skin is as dark as any in SSA, under the weaker sun of Switzerland they end up looking kind of like Indians and mulattos, though with a lot of physical diversity. I see one lady that looks like LA congresslady Karen Bass and another that could be Kamala’s sister.

    That's a new thing now, Steve, the importing of entire Civil Wars to Western countries. See, we've never had one (that late unpleasantness was a War On Secession), and we need some new entertainment. That's especially true now with the Bread & Circuses still "temporarily" shut down.

    In Sweden they imported an approximately equal number of Iranians and Iraqis, you know, to get that show going again. If the Lutherans up there in the upper Midwest would ever get their shit, and imaginations, together, we could have some of that too.

    In the meantime, White people should not complain about having their dull lives interrupted by an important historical feud occurring within our new vibrant culture. You'll get home eventually, Minneapolitans & St. Paulans. You may want to purchase that "crash axe" though. Just tell the cops you are a lumberjack, and that's OK.

    Video the entire interaction. All of it. Use two handsets if possible.

    Then we see the usual black mindless repetition "Why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her" intended to provoke a response. Followed by the quick glide behind the SUV no doubt intended to provide a better moment of "You ran over me! Almost!" drama.

    Just like a toddler, a child of 2 to 4 years of age. Really. That's what I see.

    "I already answered that question I already answered that question I already answered that question" is one response to a toddler. There are others.

Keep any weapons out of sight unless they must be used for actual defense against physical attack. Just don't show any capability.

That was foolish, one must always take the calm road in these situs. For example, when YouTube chasing momma steps behind the car, the man should politely ask her to step away from the car.

    Many people got lynched because they stole a horse.

    Horses are serious business.

    Replies: @Mike Pierson, Davenport Rector, Midfielder, @Anonymous, @Buffalo Joe, @Pop Warner

    Think about it: horses were not only the main mode of transportation but were essential for farming and all other kinds of fields that required the kind of strength a man didn’t have. Losing a horse could not only destroy your livelihood but kill you if you can’t harvest enough crops for the winter. And if you can’t? Well hopefully there’s a store within walking distance because you can’t ride a horse there.

    That actually makes me wonder how much of a household budget a horse took up (buying, maintaining, etc) vs a car today. Horses are a lot more maintenance and you have to either buy a breed a new one when the horse can’t work regularly, though you’ll only need to do that every 20-25 years

    Isaac Asimov once answered the question of how our brains would make room for all the new knowledge we were increasingly required to store. He catalogued quite a bit of the old knowledge we no longer needed to. Things like the use of obsolete tools and units of measurement. I think some of his list was related to horse upkeep.

    slightly OT, but food-n-diversity-related:

    It's begun in Japan:

    The city of Kawasaki has passed laws that criminalize "hate speech". The instigation is that some owners of Chinese food restaurants got their feelings hurt when some Japanese complained that Chinese should go back to China. It appears a committee will decide whether cases meet the definition of hate speech on a case-by-case basis (kind of like how tech companies decide on user accounts). The TV news anchor reporting this felt it was necessary to editorialize that laws in one city were not enough and that we all need to police ourselves and each other for hate.

    I hope we have all learned that every interaction with certain people must now be committed to video. Your phone is your alibi if you follow good practice - that is one reason Antifas have been snatching phones for a while, by the way.

    So we have mindset failure. One cannot deal with drama queens and princesses, especially massively entitled black drama queens, via logic. They don't logic. Not. At. All.

    Follow an escalation ladder - start polite and calm, remain that way but do not give one millimeter of concession to false accusations either.

    Video the entire interaction. All of it. Use two handsets if possible.

    Then we see the usual black mindless repetition "Why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her" intended to provoke a response. Followed by the quick glide behind the SUV no doubt intended to provide a better moment of "You ran over me! Almost!" drama.

    Just like a toddler, a child of 2 to 4 years of age. Really. That's what I see.

    "I already answered that question I already answered that question I already answered that question" is one response to a toddler. There are others.

    Finally, another Harry Potter wand moment. No justification for presenting a firearm, because nobody was in danger of grave bodily harm or death. Yeah, arrest and confiscation of firearm. Keep any weapons out of sight unless they must be used for actual defense against physical attack. Just don't show any capability.

    Astute observers will note that the white man verbally escalated with F-bombs and "who do you think you are"? That's so 20th century. That was foolish, one must always take the calm road in these situs. For example, when YouTube chasing momma steps behind the car, the man should politely ask her to step away from the car. "Please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car..."

    If she complies, that's good. If she explodes in verbal anger, that's OK too if you are recording it all.

    Go "deadface" on them. Show no emotion at all, mentally view such real-world trolls as if they were some sort of unusual vegetable or mineral. Either they'll give up, or they'll escalate verbally.

    Either is a win. Preserve yourself, your money and your health. Your pride isn't worth it.

For the most part this is pure tribalism (Greek, Turkish, Arabic [and presumably "Israeli"] coffee are the same thing), though in some cases there is difference (Lebanese baklava is superior to Greek because of the more restrained use of honey, Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains).

    Replies: @Jack D

    Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains.

    Israeli “couscous” has a completely different history than real couscous. In its early days, Israel had a (democratic) socialist economy and socialist economies are always short of hard currency for some mysterious reason, including hard currency that can be used to buy imported foodstuffs (the E. Germans went for 40 years without seeing a banana).

    At the same time, they brought a whole bunch of Sephardic Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, etc. into Israel. Rice is a staple food of Sephardic cuisine but it doesn’t grow in Israel. These Arabic speaking immigrants, who were just an annoying bunch of uneducated brown buggers to the Ashkenazi socialist founders of Israel (sort of the Israel version of Mexicans), kept asking for rice so that they could cook dinner, because they were not into eating potatoes and buckwheat groats like their (distant) Ashkenazi cousins. The Ministry of Finance said no way – we are not going to spend our scarce and valuable hard currency reserves on buying rice for you filthy buggers – you can eat dirt as far as we are concerned, if you don’t already. (The Sephardic Jews of Israel hate hate hate educated left wing Ashkenazis to this day.) The wise Ben Gurion ordered that the (socialist) pasta factory produce a suitable rice shaped pasta substitute (made from wheat flour) that would satisfy the dirty Arab-Jews and thus “Israeli couscous” was born. (It was not a very good substitute). Later it came to be loved by American chefs for some strange reason. Meanwhile in Israel it is eaten today mainly by young children.

    New Hampshire has no sales tax or income tax.

    In a women’s prison there must be a danger that she will corrupt vulnerable young inmates, so perhaps she will be kept in solitary.

    It is easy to lump in Ethiopia with the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, but the place really is quite different.

    From Wikipedia:

    The earliest known documented and detailed history of the Oromo people was by the Ethiopian monk Abba Bahrey who wrote Zenahu le Galla in 1593, though the synonymous term Gallas was mentioned in maps or elsewhere much earlier.
     

    I can't think of a single other African country that has written histories of its people going back to the 16th century or for that matter, any written histories at all.

    The Oromos emerged onto the Ethiopian historical scene since roughly 1540 — as fearsome and ruthless invading barbarians from the south. They did not have any literary tradition of their own, however, but until around 19oo were only written about by the literate Ethiopians, mostly the Christian Amhara and Tigray, and to a much smaller extent also by the Muslims centered on the eastern city of Harar. The literary tradition of the Orthodox Ethiopian Christians reaches back into the first millenium.

    This historical achievement gap still irks the Oromo collectively, even though today there are many accomplished Oromo in Ethiopia — heck, the Ethiopian prime minister is one of them — with many of them virtually indistinguishable to the outsider from Amhara.

  112. Don’t suggest Oromo-Americans have duel loyalties, that would be anti-Semitic.

  113. The Oromo Amhara conflict is pretty serious and worrisome.

    Think of the Amharas as the English, and Oromos as the Irish, and imagine if London had been in Ireland, and was the seat of British power, and the city residents were English, Scots and Welch. Can you imagine the conflict if this had been the case when the Irish and English were going at it before Ireland became independent?

    Addis Ababa, is the capital of Ethiopia but is is an Amhara city and the seat of the federal government. The immediate surrounding is resided by Oromos.

    The city was founded by the Amhara king, Menelik, after he conquered the Oromos. Addis Ababa is only a few miles away from Amhara territory border, and Amharas claim Menelik re-conquered land that was once theirs before Oromos invaders conquered it in the 16th century.

    Anyway, Oromos resent the domination of Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. They oppose the political and culture domination by northern Ethiopians collectively know as the “Abeshas” (Abyssinians in English). Abesha culture is shared by Eritreans as well excluding language. In general, Abeshas are Northeners, Orthodox Christian, highlanders, farmers who use a plough, speak a Semitic language, (Amharas speak Amharic, Eritreans speak Tigrigna), they main cereal is teff, they wear white cotton clothing, they have fine face features, light to dark brown skin, and tend to be short.

    In general Oromos are southerners, Muslims or Christian (Orthdox or Protestant), were lowland nomads until they conquered the highlands of southern Ethiopia (and assimilated the conquered people such that the former now no longer exist). As former nomads they their food is mostly meat and milk. Their original clothing were hide skins. They also have fine face features (although not as sharp), and they are taller than Abeshas on account of their better diet.

    Oromos were formidable warriors that overrun southern Ethiopia until they hit Amhara territory. Their cavalry is famous. The Amharas barely managed to stop their invasion and in fact were in danger of being had it not been for Oromo divisions. In the border areas, the Amhara and Oromos used to raid each other for horses, cattle, slaves. No big deal in my opinion. The also exchanged or kidnapped each other’s women for marriage (telefa) because their marriage laws forbade marriage between couple that are even remotely related. Amharas can not marry anyone with a common ancestor up to 7 generations.

    Finally, the tide turned for Amharas, and Emperor Menelik not only defeated the Oromos but also conquered their territory and colonized them. He did this by forming an alliance with one powerful Oromo clan who converted to Christianity. Also, he got himself some modern weaponry from Europeans by promising them to be their Christian ally agains the pagan and Muslim Oromos.

    The singer is a very beloved and important singer, an icon. He music is about Oromo cultural and political resistance and renaissance in opposition to decades of Abesha domination.

    While Haile Sellasie was in exile in England during WWII, he picked up some strange British ways such as building statues. Once back in Ethiopia, he had himself built a huge statue of Emperor Menelik in the capital city Addis Ababa. Oromo activists have been trying to topple that statue for the past 20 years with no success. He also built a statue of his father in the Oromo province his father governed near the Somali border.

    Anyway, I get why they toppled Haile Sellassies’s statue. They can’t get to Menelik’s statue so this will have to do for now.

    Hachallu’s death is their George Floyd moment, except he probably was killed in a drunken brawl.

    I didn’t understand why Oromo activists are stopping traffic in Minnesota at first, but it occurred to me that they are sending a message to their brethren to stop all traffic to Addis Ababa, to put the city under siege.

    St. Paul is the nerve center of Oromo activism because that is where Oromo refugees were settled in the US. Their top leadership live there.

    Right, because in our benighted age ,no form of communication other than coded symbolic gestures is available. No Oromo activist can pick up a phone and call his brethren in Addis Ababa and say " Yo my brother, put Addis Ababa under siege". Being that phones and such are in the science fiction future, Minnesota commuters will just have to bear the burden.

    I hope we have all learned that every interaction with certain people must now be committed to video. Your phone is your alibi if you follow good practice - that is one reason Antifas have been snatching phones for a while, by the way.

    So we have mindset failure. One cannot deal with drama queens and princesses, especially massively entitled black drama queens, via logic. They don't logic. Not. At. All.

    Follow an escalation ladder - start polite and calm, remain that way but do not give one millimeter of concession to false accusations either.

    Video the entire interaction. All of it. Use two handsets if possible.

    Then we see the usual black mindless repetition "Why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her why did you bump into her" intended to provoke a response. Followed by the quick glide behind the SUV no doubt intended to provide a better moment of "You ran over me! Almost!" drama.

    Just like a toddler, a child of 2 to 4 years of age. Really. That's what I see.

    "I already answered that question I already answered that question I already answered that question" is one response to a toddler. There are others.

    Finally, another Harry Potter wand moment. No justification for presenting a firearm, because nobody was in danger of grave bodily harm or death. Yeah, arrest and confiscation of firearm. Keep any weapons out of sight unless they must be used for actual defense against physical attack. Just don't show any capability.

    Astute observers will note that the white man verbally escalated with F-bombs and "who do you think you are"? That's so 20th century. That was foolish, one must always take the calm road in these situs. For example, when YouTube chasing momma steps behind the car, the man should politely ask her to step away from the car. "Please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car please step away from the car..."

    If she complies, that's good. If she explodes in verbal anger, that's OK too if you are recording it all.

    Go "deadface" on them. Show no emotion at all, mentally view such real-world trolls as if they were some sort of unusual vegetable or mineral. Either they'll give up, or they'll escalate verbally.

    Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains.
     
    Israeli "couscous" has a completely different history than real couscous. In its early days, Israel had a (democratic) socialist economy and socialist economies are always short of hard currency for some mysterious reason, including hard currency that can be used to buy imported foodstuffs (the E. Germans went for 40 years without seeing a banana).

    At the same time, they brought a whole bunch of Sephardic Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, etc. into Israel. Rice is a staple food of Sephardic cuisine but it doesn't grow in Israel. These Arabic speaking immigrants, who were just an annoying bunch of uneducated brown buggers to the Ashkenazi socialist founders of Israel (sort of the Israel version of Mexicans), kept asking for rice so that they could cook dinner, because they were not into eating potatoes and buckwheat groats like their (distant) Ashkenazi cousins. The Ministry of Finance said no way - we are not going to spend our scarce and valuable hard currency reserves on buying rice for you filthy buggers - you can eat dirt as far as we are concerned, if you don't already. (The Sephardic Jews of Israel hate hate hate educated left wing Ashkenazis to this day.) The wise Ben Gurion ordered that the (socialist) pasta factory produce a suitable rice shaped pasta substitute (made from wheat flour) that would satisfy the dirty Arab-Jews and thus "Israeli couscous" was born. (It was not a very good substitute). Later it came to be loved by American chefs for some strange reason. Meanwhile in Israel it is eaten today mainly by young children.

    However, a longer video soon emerged showing there was more to the story. The video starts with the black woman – Takelia Hill – accusing the white woman of racism and demanding she apologizes for allegedly bumping into Hill’s 15-year-old daughter at the entrance to a local fast-food restaurant.

    The white woman, who refuses to apologize, accuses Hill of blocking the way to her car, while imploring her to call the police. As the white woman heads to the vehicle, the black woman and her niece follow, while proceeding to accost the woman, calling her “racist” and “ignorant.” Hill and her family claim she had “violated” the teen, and end up threatening to beat up the white woman’s husband after he refuses to confront his wife when asked to do so: “Who the f*** do you guys think you are? You called her names, she did nothing to you,” he says.

    When already inside the vehicle, the white woman explodes into a rant, arguing that she is not racist and saying that she is “sorry” if the incident “has made someone feel” like they were subject to racism.

    Hill, who can be seen behind the car in the video, then punches the vehicle’s back window.

    Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains.
     
    Israeli "couscous" has a completely different history than real couscous. In its early days, Israel had a (democratic) socialist economy and socialist economies are always short of hard currency for some mysterious reason, including hard currency that can be used to buy imported foodstuffs (the E. Germans went for 40 years without seeing a banana).

    At the same time, they brought a whole bunch of Sephardic Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, etc. into Israel. Rice is a staple food of Sephardic cuisine but it doesn't grow in Israel. These Arabic speaking immigrants, who were just an annoying bunch of uneducated brown buggers to the Ashkenazi socialist founders of Israel (sort of the Israel version of Mexicans), kept asking for rice so that they could cook dinner, because they were not into eating potatoes and buckwheat groats like their (distant) Ashkenazi cousins. The Ministry of Finance said no way - we are not going to spend our scarce and valuable hard currency reserves on buying rice for you filthy buggers - you can eat dirt as far as we are concerned, if you don't already. (The Sephardic Jews of Israel hate hate hate educated left wing Ashkenazis to this day.) The wise Ben Gurion ordered that the (socialist) pasta factory produce a suitable rice shaped pasta substitute (made from wheat flour) that would satisfy the dirty Arab-Jews and thus "Israeli couscous" was born. (It was not a very good substitute). Later it came to be loved by American chefs for some strange reason. Meanwhile in Israel it is eaten today mainly by young children.

    Think about it: horses were not only the main mode of transportation but were essential for farming and all other kinds of fields that required the kind of strength a man didn't have. Losing a horse could not only destroy your livelihood but kill you if you can't harvest enough crops for the winter. And if you can't? Well hopefully there's a store within walking distance because you can't ride a horse there.

    That actually makes me wonder how much of a household budget a horse took up (buying, maintaining, etc) vs a car today. Horses are a lot more maintenance and you have to either buy a breed a new one when the horse can't work regularly, though you'll only need to do that every 20-25 years

    The Oromo Amhara conflict is pretty serious and worrisome.

    Think of the Amharas as the English, and Oromos as the Irish, and imagine if London had been in Ireland, and was the seat of British power, and the city residents were English, Scots and Welch. Can you imagine the conflict if this had been the case when the Irish and English were going at it before Ireland became independent?

    Addis Ababa, is the capital of Ethiopia but is is an Amhara city and the seat of the federal government. The immediate surrounding is resided by Oromos.

    The city was founded by the Amhara king, Menelik, after he conquered the Oromos. Addis Ababa is only a few miles away from Amhara territory border, and Amharas claim Menelik re-conquered land that was once theirs before Oromos invaders conquered it in the 16th century.

    Anyway, Oromos resent the domination of Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. They oppose the political and culture domination by northern Ethiopians collectively know as the "Abeshas" (Abyssinians in English). Abesha culture is shared by Eritreans as well excluding language. In general, Abeshas are Northeners, Orthodox Christian, highlanders, farmers who use a plough, speak a Semitic language, (Amharas speak Amharic, Eritreans speak Tigrigna), they main cereal is teff, they wear white cotton clothing, they have fine face features, light to dark brown skin, and tend to be short.

    In general Oromos are southerners, Muslims or Christian (Orthdox or Protestant), were lowland nomads until they conquered the highlands of southern Ethiopia (and assimilated the conquered people such that the former now no longer exist). As former nomads they their food is mostly meat and milk. Their original clothing were hide skins. They also have fine face features (although not as sharp), and they are taller than Abeshas on account of their better diet.

    Oromos were formidable warriors that overrun southern Ethiopia until they hit Amhara territory. Their cavalry is famous. The Amharas barely managed to stop their invasion and in fact were in danger of being had it not been for Oromo divisions. In the border areas, the Amhara and Oromos used to raid each other for horses, cattle, slaves. No big deal in my opinion. The also exchanged or kidnapped each other's women for marriage (telefa) because their marriage laws forbade marriage between couple that are even remotely related. Amharas can not marry anyone with a common ancestor up to 7 generations.

    Finally, the tide turned for Amharas, and Emperor Menelik not only defeated the Oromos but also conquered their territory and colonized them. He did this by forming an alliance with one powerful Oromo clan who converted to Christianity. Also, he got himself some modern weaponry from Europeans by promising them to be their Christian ally agains the pagan and Muslim Oromos.

    The singer is a very beloved and important singer, an icon. He music is about Oromo cultural and political resistance and renaissance in opposition to decades of Abesha domination.

    While Haile Sellasie was in exile in England during WWII, he picked up some strange British ways such as building statues. Once back in Ethiopia, he had himself built a huge statue of Emperor Menelik in the capital city Addis Ababa. Oromo activists have been trying to topple that statue for the past 20 years with no success. He also built a statue of his father in the Oromo province his father governed near the Somali border.

    Anyway, I get why they toppled Haile Sellassies's statue. They can't get to Menelik's statue so this will have to do for now.

    Hachallu's death is their George Floyd moment, except he probably was killed in a drunken brawl.

    I didn't understand why Oromo activists are stopping traffic in Minnesota at first, but it occurred to me that they are sending a message to their brethren to stop all traffic to Addis Ababa, to put the city under siege.

    St. Paul is the nerve center of Oromo activism because that is where Oromo refugees were settled in the US. Their top leadership live there.

    Right, because in our benighted age ,no form of communication other than coded symbolic gestures is available. No Oromo activist can pick up a phone and call his brethren in Addis Ababa and say ” Yo my brother, put Addis Ababa under siege”.

The video starts with the black woman – Takelia Hill – accusing the white woman of racism and demanding she apologizes for allegedly bumping into Hill’s 15-year-old daughter at the entrance to a local fast-food restaurant.

    The white woman, who refuses to apologize, accuses Hill of blocking the way to her car, while imploring her to call the police. As the white woman heads to the vehicle, the black woman and her niece follow, while proceeding to accost the woman, calling her “racist” and “ignorant.” Hill and her family claim she had “violated” the teen, and end up threatening to beat up the white woman’s husband after he refuses to confront his wife when asked to do so: “Who the f*** do you guys think you are? You called her names, she did nothing to you,” he says.

    When already inside the vehicle, the white woman explodes into a rant, arguing that she is not racist and saying that she is “sorry” if the incident “has made someone feel” like they were subject to racism.

    Hill, who can be seen behind the car in the video, then punches the vehicle’s back window.

    Actually, it is looking interesting. Australia has also jumped into the fray offering residency. But China is vigorously protesting these acts. I am wondering if Canada will also get in for some action. There must be something special about HKers if countries compete to have them.

    I think it’s just the huge Chinese presence in those countries tied with Britain’s autistic thinking that to not step up and treat Kongers like British subjects until 2047 would be a ‘defeat’.

    China / occupying Tibet and Xinyang

    China locking 2 million uyghyur Muslims in forced labor camps , using them as slaves and forcing them to drink alcohol and eat pork as well as forced marriage between Han men and uyghyur women.

    Russia/ occupying Kaliningrad, Chechnya, Dagestan,Crimea

    Morocco/ occupying western Sahara

    Turkey/ occupying Cyprus and Kurdistan

    Indonesia/ occupying west Papua and genociding 25% of the population.

    Nigeria/ occupying Biafra and killing 2 million since the 1960s

    I didn’t understand why Oromo activists are stopping traffic in Minnesota at first, but it occurred to me that they are sending a message to their brethren to stop all traffic to Addis Ababa, to put the city under siege.

    Right, because in our benighted age ,no form of communication other than coded symbolic gestures is available. No Oromo activist can pick up a phone and call his brethren in Addis Ababa and say " Yo my brother, put Addis Ababa under siege". Being that phones and such are in the science fiction future, Minnesota commuters will just have to bear the burden.

    Israeli cous cous is unique and has larger grains.
     
    Israeli "couscous" has a completely different history than real couscous. In its early days, Israel had a (democratic) socialist economy and socialist economies are always short of hard currency for some mysterious reason, including hard currency that can be used to buy imported foodstuffs (the E. Germans went for 40 years without seeing a banana).

    At the same time, they brought a whole bunch of Sephardic Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Morocco, etc. into Israel. Rice is a staple food of Sephardic cuisine but it doesn't grow in Israel. These Arabic speaking immigrants, who were just an annoying bunch of uneducated brown buggers to the Ashkenazi socialist founders of Israel (sort of the Israel version of Mexicans), kept asking for rice so that they could cook dinner, because they were not into eating potatoes and buckwheat groats like their (distant) Ashkenazi cousins. The Ministry of Finance said no way - we are not going to spend our scarce and valuable hard currency reserves on buying rice for you filthy buggers - you can eat dirt as far as we are concerned, if you don't already. (The Sephardic Jews of Israel hate hate hate educated left wing Ashkenazis to this day.) The wise Ben Gurion ordered that the (socialist) pasta factory produce a suitable rice shaped pasta substitute (made from wheat flour) that would satisfy the dirty Arab-Jews and thus "Israeli couscous" was born. (It was not a very good substitute). Later it came to be loved by American chefs for some strange reason. Meanwhile in Israel it is eaten today mainly by young children.
