Everyone in Port Sudan and Suakin speaks Bedwai and Red Sea state is autonomous and we don't want to be independent. We still practice our traditional dances and sing our songs I don't understand the issue really if other states are Arab or Nubian etc. I guess we're all free to have different priorities, I personally wouldn't want to have it any other way.I was thinking of the same today, if I was Cushitic girl in south Egypt or Sudan. Meaning Cushitic tribes migration to east Africa didn't happen, today I would be minority in Egypt and Sudan. Imagine facing racism in Egypt and being unable to speak my own language in Sudan instead Arabic. Honestly Somalis we are lucky that we have our own country. The only Cushitic country in world (main language is Cushitic, kept our tradition, dances, music, clothes, culture) thank the lord Somalis. Mashallah.
