still trYing to separate the people on your dark-skin/light-skin bizness.
"In fact, indigenous Ethiopians such as the Oromo have legitimate experiences of oppression at the hands of the lighter skinned ruling elite, the Amhara,"
where is the 'fact' in your statement. are amharas not as indigenous as oromos? your divide and rule tactics benefit nothing but your ego. their are light and dark skin amharas as well as light and dark skin oromos. your argument is null and void. you have accusations, however His Majesty has istory on his side-The Organization of African Unity.
how do you know what happens to this day in Ethiopia, have you ever been there? How many Amharas/Oromos do you Know?
In every place on Earth, their is an 'official' language. Amharic happens to be the official language of Ethiopia. Of course there have been and continue to be conflict in Ethiopia, however your simplistic view of the dynamics of Ethiopian istory, and the reduction of the issue by your assertations are lacking any substance.
