Hailie Selassie is ethnically Amhara, an Afro-Asiatic people. He has no relation to African-Americans who come from West Africa.

Africa isn't one single country made up of a single ethnicity m8. It's really fucking big. Just because they're on the same landmass doesn't mean they're inhabited by the same people. Korea isn't inhabited by the Portuguese after all.

Half that shit is uninhabitable.

>India is the horn of Africa
Ironically accurate taking into account the Indian land-grabbing that's going on today in Ethiopia.
A sad fate for the only country to not be destroyed by the scramble for Africa, to be destroyed by foreign capitals instead of armies.

But West Africa had kingdoms too, ranging from Congo delta states to Ghana/Mali/Songhai, Nigerian city states etc.

And no, before you say, it wasn't just Arabs. It was a civilization of its own.

Mud huts and sticks do not a civilization make.

To be fair, even the greatest of monuments constructed by the Sahelian empires is pretty unimpressive.
>>
>>600735
Impressive or not, whats with the mud? Why not just build with poop?
>>
>>600735
It's also Arab.

Colonialesque/commiesque land grabs that are supported, accepted and assisted by certain developed nations.

Lol no.

The idea of building a Mosque is Arab. Before that, it resembles a Byzantine cathedral.
>>
>>600903
It's Islamic you mean?

I'm totally willing to grant that this looks like the peak of mud hut technology.

Ethiopia is a literal case of WE WUZ KINGS AND SHIT tho.

Not by Ethiopians, but by other Africans. The Green, yellow, and red -the Imperial Standard of Ethiopia- became the Pan-African Colours following the defeat of Italy by Ethiopia. African nationalists went African Pride Worldwide and adopted the standard.

Because the victory meant a lot to people back then in that time period.

You must be joking

To be fair that thing's pretty big

Has to be, what, 20? 22 metres high?
>>

I feel like youre not actually ehtiopian. I bet you're an american black who'se parents told him that their grandfather or someone came from Ethiopia
>>
>>600735
It is a pretty impressive building, considering that whole thing is made with mud.
>>
>>599871
yeah but that if anything makes the inhabitable parts more distinct
if theres a big giant fuckhuge desert in the middle the stuff on one side is probably gonna be different culturally from the shit on the other side
at least i would think. but im not an expert

>Impressive or not, whats with the mud?
Mud is one of the best building materials. Wood was Scarce in the Sahel. Stone is impractical and I don't know if there was even suitable stone for quarrying in the Sahel. Makes more sense to use mud. Bricks are just baked clay and they're one of the most common building materials even today. Same reason why Scandis and Slavs only used wood. They used what suited them and their climate.

IIRC there are people in africa who are closer related to aboriginals then people on the other side of africa

then again this was just something i read on the internet and im not sure i recall correctly so take it with a grain of salt
>>
>>600735
By what standards? It's pretty impressive considering what materials they have.
>>
>>599824
Horn of Africa is pretty cool.

>the peak of mud hut technology
not anymore

Yeah you wuz kings, no issue with that. My issue is with the West African slave descendants in America going full muh heritage and thinking their ancestors were everything from Egyptian pharaohs to king Solomon.

>Big, impressive architecture is the sign of a thriving civilization.

People like you are going to praise the soviets, and their satellites in the future.

Sounds like bullshit but in Madagascar they speak an Austronesian language distantly related to Malay, Maori and even Hawaiian. pretty cool. They look kind of half chinky too.
>>
>>600735
I've heard the original one was actually pretty impressive and that one was built by puritan fundamentalist Arabs as a replacement for the cool one they demolished

Africa is the most genetically diverse of all the continents.
