It’s come to my attention that every time non somalis Whether it be Oromo or Kenyan or Yemeni wear or say something that we Somalis say, they online Somalis Automatically start labelling them as cultural appropriators and they get attacked. The girl in the video is from a Oromo tribe that lives amongst Somalis. So let’s use our common sense and understand in environments like that there will be a lot of culture exchanges. Imagine someone said we can’t wear thobs anymore because it’s cultural appropriate arab culture, don’t get me started with brothers that wear the full set with the black cloth thing on their wedding day. Dem men are cultural appropriates
“@inaayanle_：Borana and Somali live together and mix so there’s shared culture. I’m Issa and Harraghe we also share some culture. It’s not that serious calm down.”
It also Somalis that don’t live near these communities like oromo and Afars that get so shocked that Somalis have a lot of things in common with it neighbours. We ain’t special, we are no different than our neighbours. Our language is no different, our clothes, our food, some Oromo and afars are even nomadic like us.
