The dubious Oromo descent is being obsessed with claiming himself #Oromo these days amidst AJstream’s coverage of the most pressing issue in the contemporary Ethiopia. It doesn’t matter whatever he claims himself to be, but his recent satirical writings are contradictory, provocative and the dialects are in short of the true nature of any logical argumentation.
Who taught you to hate the color of your skin to such extent that you bleach it to get like the white man? Asked MalcolmX in addressing his speech to the niggas during the era of darkness in the 1960s. Don’t make me wrong, I am not emphasizing on the teacher, but the one who is clinging his teeth to the people whom he think he can trace his lineage to. Continue Reading

Testimony of Donald Y. Yamamoto Before the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations
Washington, DC | June 20, 2013
Mr. Chairman and Members of the Committee, thank you for inviting me to discuss the situation in Ethiopia since the death in August 2012 of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. Post-Meles Ethiopia presents the United States with a significant opportunity to encourage Ethiopia to improve its human rights record, liberalize its economy, and provide increased space for opposition parties and civil society organizations. Post-Meles Ethiopia also presents a significant challenge since Ethiopia plays an important role in advancing regional integration and mitigating regional conflict in Somalia and Sudan. Our partnership with Ethiopia balances these interests by focusing on democracy, governance, and human rights; economic growth and development; and regional peace and security. Continue Reading
