Has someone ever just assumed you speak Swahili? Or Somalis speak Swahili?

Lots of fools assume all Somalis speak Arabic, but occasionally the same mistake happens with Swahili.

isn't Swahili some Bantu language? somalis are the only few Africans who still speak their native language.
It has become the lingua franca of (south)East Africa.

Those Kenyan Somalis also perpetuate the error that Somalis speak Swahili.

bunch of xoolos, somalis came to kenya in 1940, and ever since then somalis lost all dhaqan.

Imagine still using this shithole of a website.
My mom picked up a little Swahili from her time in Kenya. There's this one term she likes to use as joke that means "you talk too much." I don't know how it's spelled, but it's pronounced "mah-mo kah-leh-lo"
 
I get that normally from Asians of Kenyan origin or British Ugandan Asians . Those folks economically colonised the Bantus . Good thing the Somalis followed them and made power moves from Tanzania to Zambia . We can make money , too , Mr Singh .

Most of the multimillionaires and billionaires from Bantu countries are Whites & Asians. It's embarrassing.

I have met one Asian who once had a business in Muqdisho . He takes a banana with him when eating out . Cultural appropriation :drakelaugh:
