    Tedy Afro Praise Minilik as Tikur Sew but Minilik denied his blackness in his own word,

    “‘I am not a Negro at all; I am a Caucasian,’ the Emperor Menelik told the West Indian pan-Africanist Benito Sylvain who had come to Addis Ababa to solicit the Emperor’s leadership in a society for the ‘Amelioration of the Negro Race.’ Haile Sellassie confirmed that view in a declaration to Chief H. O. Davis, a well-known Nigerian nationalist, stating that the Ethiopians did not regard themselves as Africans, but as ‘a mixed Hamito-Semitic people.’”
    (See John H. Spencer, Ethiopia at Bay (1984), p. 306.)

      Please place a time frame in your assessment of what is said and done by people who lived a long time ago. Obviously you don’t mean that Menelik never looked at himself on a mirror and saw something different?
      I think we should look deeper, what is the meaning of “I am Caucasian” in a time where all non-Caucasian part of the world was being victimized? In a time slavery existed in Ethiopia independent of European influence. Can you imagine the translation of the question for him? Dear King of Kings, “are you a Barya” to use the correct term for the time? I will let you extrapolate the answer and the translation.

      Tolosa!
      True unity requires true freedom and that is exactly what we don’t have. This horrible place of prison is created for and run by people who think of themselves as non Africans. Did you know that Ethiopia was the fourth ranked slave exporter of slaves under Menilik. I wonder how many of those were people from his tribe? If you follow current affairs you can see even the so called democracies are having hard time to stay united even monetary wise. Even today Great Briton is struggling with this issue let alone countries like Ethiopia. Countries come countries go. Don’t believe countries that do not respect individual or collective rights of people can survive for ever. Immeye Ethiopia has always been a stepmother for non traditional Ethiopians. Those who were in power before before this evil government were just as cruel. They are mad as hell because somebody else took away from them. their struggle has nothing to do with freedom but power. As soon somebody challenges their view of equality they run to their chauvinistic refuge.
