Praise for Ethiopian women

David Talbot, an African-American who had been the Ethiopian Herald’s long serving editor in the 50′s and 60′s has this to say about Ethiopian women.
Ethiopian women are for the most part very beautiful specimens of feminity as approached from the western standards.Thier average height is generally not tall, they vary in complexion from very bright to very dark color, and it is correct to say that for a color scheme, a gathering of Ethiopian women would not be a bit different to that of one in the sections of America predominantly Afro-Americans.In features, they are invariably of high forehead with noses varying from aquiline to flat, predominantly oval of face and most feminine in gait and physique.A recent visitor to the land of Queen of Sheba told me that he was really pleasantly surprised to see the Ethiopian women at a dinner given in his honor; how beautiful are they, and without “war paint!”They have lovely skins, probably attributable to thier food, periodic abstinence and the cilmate.

For facial expression these women are sources of excellent delight.It is known that so far as thier teeth are concerned, dentists do not reap a ready harvest.With generally white teeth, large luminous eyes of a rare liquid expression, plenty of strong hair, the woman’s smile is most bewitching.Very shy by tradition, in the presence of her male companion it makes him feel that he is master of all he surveys.It is probably true that most of the women of the leisure class of the outgoing generation, are more on the obese side, it not being unusual to see some of excessive avoirdupois.From what I have seen, at the present age, the emphasis is definately not on curves, but on lines, and the younger set is seeing to the fact that thier weight is kept within the limit of the current vogue.Ethiopian women, the majority of them, take care personally of thier beauty culture business.Their hair-do is very spectacular: and, lo, i have found some of the current fascinating styles in the United States, facsimiles of some of those worn in Addis Ababa by the Ethiopian well-dressed woman!

A large number of them, especially in Addis Ababa and the larger towns, prefer western dress.The middy blouse provides the uniforms of the girls in the girls schools or dresses made on the western order in drill and other materials.Ethiopian girl students are now permitted to travel to foreign countries for sudy and away from thier parents.

Fortunately or unfortunately, Ethiopian society is definately eastern in character.Women in general, therefore, are trained from their childhood to efface themselves in public in deference to their males.This has conditioned each to accept a lesser role in the scales of public mention.She therefore suffers a handicap in enjoying as freely as her sisters in the West the station of equal social and civic partnership.

    This is a crap.where does this man knows Ethiopian women? The truth is an Ethiopian woman is filthy stinking creature. Tried to hide her foul and polluting smell,
    she make use of cosmetics and perfumes (all at the cost of men). She has no love
    lost. Only dominance by being near and money matters. Women will jump sides at
    the side of money and better fortune. Women is a spider web. MEN BETTER WATCHOUT
    AND KEEP AWAYS. USE THEM AND GET AWAY. NO INVOLVEMENT OF SENTIMENTS PLEASE.

    Eyayu, Dumped again? Ayizoh.Atalekakis.It is not the end of the world.
    Your problem is you always mess up with bitches.And you think all girls are like them.
    Have respect for yourself and go after decent girls.And you would know what real girls are.

    Ethiopian girls are indeed beautiful especially when the yardstick employed to measure beauty is physical attractiveness. Anything more than that is not her strong point. She thinks this gives her the right to put herself at the center of the universe.
    She is little informed and her ability to take part in learned conversation is not much to admire.
    she is not mentally disturbed but emotionally unstable.She cannot live happily with the mores and values traditional society imposes uopon her and she canot live without it.

    We should be grateful to Arefaynie for this informmative essasy.This observation of our women( ‘the alluring brown ladies’) belongs to the author only. We have all our encounters and grudges about them that ,however , shouldn’t shadow our reason as they did Eyau’s. Why not we just say what we feel about them? Let’s be honest Ethiopian women are beautiful. They are also becoming beyond our reach. We are neither liberated nor affluent to control them. We the men couldn’t stride at their pace. Our grip is going loose; we are loosing control of them. And we are worried. Aren’t we?

    RE: “In praise of an Ethiopian women ”
    The Author described the true Beauty and Essence of an Ethiopian women.
    However individual character as well as personality should not affect the beauty of the true Ethiopian women described authenticially by the Author thus , should not discredit the Beauty and Essence of an Ethiopian women wihch will stand no matter who agrees or not that is the True Beauty of
    Ethiopian women and what they are made of . The rest is just like any one else in the world you can not generalize the whole nations characterstic to either be great or vice versa.

      i agree, and for the record Ethiopia women are beautiful, people usually say lost, but I’m found in those eyes.

  7. January 29, 2008 at 4:25 am

    Although I know that most people who will read my comment will not agree with me, I still want to pass out my thought about the Ethiopian beauty. To me beauty is more than any form of physical attraction. I believe that if beauty is only restricted to that, then they wont be anything more than lust between people and that would be the end of togetherness.

    Anyway, my point is to ask everyone if u have noticed the change with most Ethiopian women lately? They seem to follow the cash than try to look into what someone has bring into a relationship as a person. This has, therefore,makes me wonder if this low self-esteem is really a sign of beauty.

    If u wanna prove what I just wrote about, just go into any online dating site that ethiopian women post their profiles. There, finding some girl writing that she is looking for someone to take care of her is no more a surprise.

    I am an Ethiopian woman myself and I only said what I said just because I wanted to make a point that we need to change cause i think that this change is the change that we all are looking for

    in peace,

      i agree. the cost of trying to keep up with the 21century. Its not that Ethiopian women are worst than any other women in the world.no! the problem is that they ‘ are becoming too much like other women in the world too worldly and less humble to the virtues of a beautiful woman which is inner and outer. the gates is open and that far off place is getting not so far off but open to the good, and unfortunately bad of the outside world.

    all women would normally look for a provider since society dictates tht the male is the bread winner of the house …so when u say abesha women the follow the cash..look at todays music and entertainment outlets ..even commercials…the female is in it for the money….and who other than a caucasian female is usually in the ad. As for beauty there defianatly gorgeous and beautiful ..me being ethiopian and surround by a lot of ethiopian women .. know that as a true tradtional value.. education is important which leads me to believe that u probably attract brainless women…and people educate yourself. its not queen of sheba its queen sheba…queen of sheba is used to detach her of her native homeland and make appear none abesha…and the egyptian pharoahs were from abyssinian decent and were black..as written in ancient roman scriptures

    I don’t think that being raised in a patriarchal society would justify following the cash in terms of getting one self in a relationship. I totally don’t get what u were talking about the queen of Sheba. what about her?

    I love my ethiopian woman and hope everybody gets the chance to do so.She is a true work of art representing what a real ethiopian woman is.She is beautifull,open minded,has a big hart, has respect for others and she is all in all proud to be a woman and most of all an ethiopian.Besides, she constantly reminds me what she likes and hates about me,where she wants to be touched,kissed and carassed.Most of all, she screams my full name loud every time I make love to her.So what I’m saying is you have to be lucky to have found a good ethiopian woman

    The consensus here that “our women have become beyond our reach”, not excluding Eyayu’s forceful exhortations, is correct. Ethiopian women are probably the most desired (and desirable) of all African women, with the possible exception of white southern Africans; in consequence of this, woman’s natural inclination to material comfort, and Ethiopia’s Addis’ relative affluence, Ethiopian women have become excessively urban and soullessly materialistic — just like women in every other affluent society/city. It’s the same pattern everywhere from America to China. Woman are supposed to want a provider, but her ‘liberation’ has abolished her share in the transaction — humility, care of the house, children — and replaced it with a one-way street leading to a miserable dead-end: satisfaction of her material wants with no payoff in sight, until the man is either broke or has worn out his sexual novelty, which, given female neurochemistry, is comparatively sooner than for the male. ‘Education’ is as much to blame for this state of affairs as affluence and pseudo-culture. You cannot educate a female without losing her from the race, from the genepool. Theorizing woman as educable was more disastrous even than letting her vote, for it foisted upon a being with one clear natural purpose an entirely foreign, life-denying role designed to compete with and ultimately destroy the influence of the male in society. So if Ethiopians want their women back, they’ll basically have to overthrow modernism and install a totalitarian, patriarchal regime — Shari’ah, in a word.

    That said, Ethiopian women are truly some of the most aesthetically perfect on Earth.

  15. Marshall Lentini
    April 2, 2008 at 3:20 pm

    And no man should allow himself to think that he can dodge this trend, that he can find a woman who is ‘different’ — though he will find hundreds of women who like to say they are ‘different’, and are all the same kind of neurotic, empty, soul-sucking, money-grubbing banshee. That is indeed the most puzzling aspect of the modern female: her belief that she is not those things, and that it is “the male”, with his eternal instinct to rove and spread his seed, who is to blame for being mal baisée, when in fact it is a force, a cultural-historical trend quite beyond her control or intelligence which makes her disgruntled, self-centered and useless. Every female wilts before such descriptions, and either lashes out (ad homines directed at the male’s mother, his love life [which proves the point!], masturbation, or some such childish thing) or tells herself, assures herself, that she is “not that kind of girl”. Yet every Western woman has slept with the equivalent of two or three football teams by the time the “right one” comes along to “sweep her off her feet”, and every other female from the Latin American, to the African, to the Asian, and especially the Muslim, may be as pure as you please, but equally vapid (in the origin meaning of the word ‘in-nocent’) and with a truly repulsive and inhuman princess complex. In fine, there are no “good women” — or not nearly enough to satisfy all the good men left stranded by the enfranchisement (read: wholesale spoiling) of women.

      i agree,men share the blame in the cause of this tread to hopeless misery too. not due to lack wealth alone due to the basic need that women require “security”we black men are sorely disadvantage, and unless we as head off the household secure or position in the earth the world will/has swallowed up our women/families cause she has no more defense but seeks her security every and anywhere. we men are mostly weak(lack of unity, capital; cultural identity, and true knowledge of self along with foreign influences and oppression = far from god) therefore our women are affected as a result. we need to stop and get our priorities straight, and being selfish and empty, losing soul to seek vanity is and never will be a virtue ladies and gentleman of the times.

    • March 12, 2013 at 8:42 am

      I hope you are not implying YOU are a good man…but more to the point, education is a double edged sword for either gender, as in its just a tool and how and if you use it is what matters. Women are as educable as men. There are noble prize winners from both genders. The ratio of women to men noble prize winners doesn’t matter in my argument either, since if there is one educable women, there are others. And about being self-centered, hate to break it to you but, it applies to both genders.

    This is in response to the comment by Marshall Lentini.

    “Ethiopian women have become excessively urban and soullessly materialistic — just like women in every other affluent society/city. It’s the same pattern everywhere from America to China.

    Reading your comments makes me believe that they are still living within the time zone of 300 years back.

    I can’t believe that you blame education for the present independence of women, a means that enables women to enjoy their human rights, the rights that they are entitled to just by a mere fact of being a human.

    I am sorry to say this but I am guessing that you grew up in an abusive family or even grew up on the street with no sense of respect of any human being what so ever. I feel sorry for a woman for would be lured to be “your” woman. I bet that if you and I can compete on anything that requires skill and mental ability I would beat the hell out of you and I AM A WOMAN, AN ETHIOPIAN WOMAN.

    It is also amazing that you even dared to say that women are “useless”. Well, I can tell you that, even a woman who is suppressed by a system set up by a man and who did not even make it to grade 1 is more useful to her country just because she is a WOMAN than u are. She is a leader, a mentor and most of all a mother, a sister, a friend a life partner whom I understand that you have never had one in ur miserable life.

    About women sleeping with alot of men until they find the right one only to leave him for another man when they get tired of it, with how many women have u slept with so far or how many of ur male friends slept with different women and cheat on them? Well, u should know by now that, every one, including women have the right to make their own choices of a life partner or a boy friend and FYI, it is called the right to privacy.

    And finally, just for your info, women are not a commodity and are not happened to be in a system set up by the MAN to be exploited just as it has been happening so far. WE, WOMAN are independent with the ability to live life on our own without ur “support”

    I hope this will keep ur retarded brain busy for some time.

    That’s probably true. Some men are throwbacks to their great-grandfathers.

    I can’t believe that you blame education for the present independence of women,

    I don’t: I blame men for the independence of women — because men gave it to them. I blame education, that is to say their enfrachisement as educable beings, for a good part of their post-feminine character.

    I am sorry to say this but I am guessing that you grew up in an abusive family or even grew up on the street with no sense of respect of any human being what so ever.

    Worse — an Italian family from New Yawk!

    I feel sorry for a woman for would be lured to be “your” woman.

    Obviously “feeling sorry” is your only means of defense. But don’t worry, most women are only stupid enough to be lured by negroes and crackheads; very seldom by misogynists.

    I bet that if you and I can compete on anything that requires skill and mental ability I would beat the hell out of you and I AM A WOMAN, AN ETHIOPIAN WOMAN.

    Oh yea? Show me your tits.

    She is a leader, a mentor and most of all a mother, a sister, a friend a life partner

    But that is precisely my point: hypercapitalism and the enfrachisement of woman have made her in many cases quite rabidly opposed to the very idea of being a mother — and to murder countless millions of nascent human lives by abortion. Where does that fit into your rosy paean?

    About women sleeping with alot of men until they find the right one only to leave him for another man when they get tired of it, with how many women have u slept with so far or how many of ur male friends slept with different women and cheat on them?

    Less than you’d like to believe, I’m sure. But in any case, women used to be respectable; now they believe sleeping with entire football teams of men — imitating a bogus idea of male behavior set up by feminism — is the way to sort through all the “pigs” and “weirdos” and “creeps” and “losers”. Actually, they’re pigs themselves and revel in the mud of licentious behavior; they just can’t admit it to themselves.

    Well, u should know by now that, every one, including women have the right to make their own choices of a life partner or a boy friend and FYI, it is called the right to privacy.

    You’re utterly confused, of course, but allow me to correct you: Being a slut is not the same as finding a life partner, both of which are not the right to privacy. You need to keep your ideas straight, sista. But heeeeyy, if “independence” is all about going to bars to drink, flash your boobies and pick up strange men until you finally find one you can tolerate the morning after, so be it! and I am the primitive, the brute, the barbarian!

    And finally, just for your info, women are not a commodity

    Of course they are, have ever been, and shall always be — whether you like it or not. We wouldn’t be here discussing it if woman weren’t still fundamentally an article of commerce. Some women do still make the heinous mistake of, you know, finding a real mate and procreating before their “career” whisks them off into the absolutely fabulous world of urban wealth & renown.

    WE, WOMAN are independent with the ability to live life on our own without ur “support”

    You can use tags to make the word “woman” even bigger, you know — if it makes you feel more assertive.

    I hope this will keep ur retarded brain busy for some time.

    To M.Lentini: now i know that u and ur people in ur circle merely believe that a woman is sex object. the thing is that, if u are as educated as I think u are, u already know by now that the world is not for, but rather against you. And I am not surprised by ur previous comment that u are not able to go out with a woman cause any woman, including myself have to be crazy enough to even think about going out with u.

    I have to say – I am quite shocked by what some people left here.

    As a male it took me some time (years and years to be honest) until I learned that women are neither mean nor bitches, they are – viewed from a male perspective – just one thing: different. And I am sure women will notice the same thing about men. They use a different language, they are mostly interested in different things – but they are wonderful creatures. I absolutely agree with Ambi in most of her points.

    But seeing that difference doesn’t necessarily mean that I cannot respect a woman. I will have to learn her language if I want to stay with her, as she has to learn my (male) language. Otherwise we will see only misunderstandings after a while, and who needs that?

    What is love anyway? Some people seem to take their own opinion on that for granted. When wishes start to be thought of only as demands there is seriously something going wrong. Which means, Mr. Lentini, everybody has to think about the wishes of the other one. If I am sure, it will give me a hard time to fulfill the wishes of my woman, I shouldn’t stay with her. Wrong one. It is maybe sad (no romanticism to be found here), but it is as simple as that.

    And to add a comment to the original text: yes I agree, many ethiopian women are very, very beautiful.

    I have been to ethiopia many times loved it, Ethiopian women are beautiful however, I’ve seen plenty of very young. Ethiopian girls and women with very fat old middle aged men who you couldn’t describe as the most open minded in the world, when it comes to Africa or any developing country. To me they know most beautiful women in their home countries. Wouldn’t touch them with a 172cm pole their Pound or Dollar or Euro won’t go far there to get the beauty that they get in Addis Ababa.

    They have discovered their currancy will stretch further in Ethiopia and they know many of the women are to poor to be fussy if Ethioppia had a stronger economy and Ethiopian men. Had access to good quality work Ethiopian women wouldn’t bother with anyone outside their culture maybe other Africans or Carribeans Africa Americans. Come a very distant second place but old white guys forget it! Ethiopia has no psychological colonial overhang.

    Some Ethiopian women chase money the same as any other women but in Ethiopia’s case poverty gives added incentive. To earn 1000 birr in one day or 250 Birr in one month especially when there isn’t much work around is tempting. I think any women in similar circumstances would, do the same thing look at Dominican republic,Brazil,Costa Rica, Phillipines even Russia, Ukrain the same thing is happening in those nations as well this global economic system isn’t fair. It creates thugs and prostitutes.

    I’m a woman and i say Monsieur Marshall Lentini made by reports and his analysis is of the most relevant. Just on all the line. He understood everything and he’s a true gentleman as he exists there little today regrettably.
    Claimed emancipation of women is a bait (spread by our worst ennemy) in which they get lost to the detriment of the family by scoffing at the most sacred : the child.

      he had some good points but not all. the powers of the women most be free but used for good her family always put first. a selfish woman is less than a woman and goes against her nurturing supportive nature. in this world of good and evil man and woman have left their post when it comes to the order of life love and God(family).;replaced with everyman/woman/child for his/herself (not pretty).

  27. July 22, 2008 at 8:05 am

    Leona,
    Are Ethiopian men are handsome?

    There are handsome Ethiopians men. Not as tall as America basket ball players. (Exception Gambella) But men are not as handsome much as girls. (Apology for the blunt assertion, you will some more below)
    The men don’t spend as much time and cares taking care of themselves as girls do.
    It isn’t like in the West. Here men are expected to be rich (moderately clean) (having a showy car, oh a dream come true) who takes good care of their girls, who settles the charge in the bar and restaurant. (The restaurant should be good for its service but also the type of clientele it draws and the location) .Women tend to monopolize the most colorful and luxurious clothing. Men, no matter how rich, wear more sober clothing

    Girls go the sauna bath, have their nail varnished, and show it while holding a whiskey glass and laughs giggly when the men throws a joke ( Even if it isn’t funny).
    It is normal that a man would invest a lot of money on girls if she is pleasant to look at
    not only in his eyes but also in those around.(the later matters an awfully lot).
    The only thing she (the poor and beautiful Ethiopia woman) has to tolerate listening the man’s boast when he shows her (happens usually) he is the most knowledgeable person in the world.(of course, most men read nothing more than a crass “fashion magazine”) Ethiopian, especially city men, love dropping the name of philosophers (a quotation from Dostoevsky, or some forgotten Indian guru ) and bombastic words like deconstruction for their beautiful girls, even if the man pronounces them wrongly (that is what happens most times) and hasn’t even read any of any books on the subject.(that is the case 98 percent of the time) It doesn’t matter whether that GIRL understands or not. What matter most is He (the all-powerful and all-knowing guy) is exercising his power and influence on her? If he succeeds (most time he does), she will go and spread his fame to other “cute” friends.
    The men (unbelievably arrogant) don’t feel that they are talking their girls down. In some unfortunate times, the girl happens to be smarter and educated than him. That is the most shocking thing to could happen to an Ethiopia man. It is like an electric shock and he will likely have a head ache for a week)

    P.S There are more Ethiopian men who are gossipers than women. If you meet an Ethiopian, never tell him all these all I told you. I am telling you will make a life time enemy.

    If your are looking for a handsome Ethiopia man, here I am. Tall, athletic, modest, humble, learned and has acquired the wisdom of the world from various corners of the globe, funny (big time).

    By the way, deconstruction is a method of analyzing texts based on the ideas that language is inherently unstable and shifting and that the reader the author is central in determining meaning. It was introduced by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida in the late 1960′s. (I swear to God I haven’s read his book but I am very much Ethiopian.)

    Tekle, I liked what you said, I am a women and I study deconstruction, and I can tell grammatically that you did not write the last paragraph (your explanation of deconstruction), mostly because of the way everything else was written. I am an English teacher, so I feel obligated to say to you that you must put quotation marks around sentences that have not been written by you, if you don’t, it is plagerism.

    Thank you for writing, it was very interesting to read.

    Well, the correct spelling is plagiarism, both in the USA and the UK.

    We Ethiopians like to be flattered. Any story of flattery produced by foreigners we eat it up. This is a case in point

    Very interesting posts regarding our women. Sticking to the topic of the essence of Ethiopian women, I always find myself questioning the so called beauyy of Ethiopian women. Ethiopian women are beautiful, I agree. But so are other women from other parts of the world. Trust me, I am Ethiopian and a woman, but I am tired of hearing Ethiopian women being the only beauties on earth.
    Open up your eyes and your minds guys, there are many beautiful women all over the world…. Spanish, Indian, Arabic, Asian……etc, well cultured and true to their roots as well. Lets not blow our horns too loud.

    Only some women in Ethiopia are beatiful and it depends on the region. Most women in Wollo, Raya, Harar, Afar, Somali region and some women in Addis are beautiful. In the rest of the country beauty is scarce, the majority are just average and many are ugly as hell! So lets not generalize.

    When it come to men, I personnally the Afar are the most beatiful men in the country if we assess them objectively. Thier teeth, eyes, physique, etc are just amazing. Go and see for your self as I did.

    The long and short of it is that Ethiopian land breeds beautiful people, but again beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Personally, i think that Ethiopian beauty is out of this world and very natural as compared to the western world:they use herbs and natural oils as opposed to cosmetics and surgeries.

    If an Ethiopian lady went near ma man, id b so insecure.lol!!i think they 2nd to the Egyptians,now these are true goddesses lol!Lets appreciate beauty and not shun it down.

    OMG!!!! This is a great article because of the fact that the western media has always portrayed African women to be ugly and undesirable with picky nigga naps!!!! This is a wonderful article and for everyone hating on the Ethiopian women- u are just jealous cuz you are ugly and you can’t get a girl lookin like that!!!

    And for the ones bitching about how they are so tired of Hearing about Ethiopian beauty – put a plug in it. I don’t know where you live in but hearing about African beauty is extremely uncommon. In america people usually refer to white, hispanic, and indian girls as being beautiful. Never africans. My little sister feel insecure about her own looks because of how “white beauty” is displayed in the media. We need to (for lack of a better word) advertise our Ethiopian sisters beauty.

    To the people who speak about Ethiopian women being golddiggers – have you ever met a blonde white girl before? Or prostitutes of many diff. races in America? no? well you should. golddiggery is not limited to race but to the individual woman.

    are you talking about nature vs nature or emotion vs emotion or poore judgment vs good one?
    gender vs nature or sex vs love or goodness vs evil?
    I say ethiopians are the most beutiful people on earth
    they have got all under their skins or that never changing God given gifts before no one was their Gen.2:13
    cush= ethiopia=abbsynia= africa(afare)
    the highest civilazation on earth tell me what do you real mean or want to say?
    cush= nimirord =bable= the tower of bablone= the first civilazation.
    what you see is today very small chiped of ethiopia.
    remember how many african countries did you visted beside western?
    have you ever been in Yamen or ertriea, or Rhounda or south africa or sudan or can you identify who is or not ethiopian?
    very handsome men and beutiful women originated from ethipia.
    tel me more if you any
    thank you

    Ethiopian women are definitely some of the worlds most beautiful sensations to witness. If only those sensations would last longer than the ability to know the actual beauty of a soul.

    In my experience of seeing ethiopian women in action, they are not all that beautiful and they use foreign men to get money and to marry them to leave that poor country.

    I wish I knew more about this one. I have been to a number of sites today browsing for information and facts, the vast majority of sites I’ve been to I’ve found the information section has become a slanging match. It’s not really the sort of thing young ladies talk about, so i was wanting someone right here could actually help?

      If you want to check the beauty of Ethiopian women, you have to look closer into ethnicity and your standard of beauty. If you believe women who have white features (nose, lip, face shape) are pretty, then don’t waste your time checking the mixed women in other parts of Ethiopia. Go to the north part of Ethiopia where there is a majority of habesha (semitic), esp. tigray, wello. Girls from these parts of ethiopia have unique color (sun burnt face), average height of 159 to 162 cm and mostly slim, traditional, virtuous (not like those at the capital where money and other issues are their priorities) and proud.
      It is difficult to find data, statistics or whatever in Ethiopia. Sadly, I cant help you with that regard. I have been to all most all parts of Ethiopia and I know what I am saying.

    Ethiopian women are indeed beautiful & the reason why they are materialistic or follow the cash is to escape from our bitter enemy(poverty) which has been kickin our ass since we were created in our mom’s womb! I have some crews from Cameroon & senegal & they always ask me to introduce them to Ethiopian ladies! I live in Texas,where a large number of Hispanic American live! In the past I thought Latinos were gorgeous & very beautiful but when I came here,the truth is vice versa & they are as beautiful as I expected! It’s obvious that some Ethio-American are drawing the attention of many superstars! Trey Songz girl friend Helen,Akon’s wife Rosina & super model like Liya kebede!
