    No I don't find the current set up to be a problem.

    You can't have it both ways. I don't know if you have been paying attentions but people are dying because oromos are living in ogandan or vice versa and apparently that means they don't belong there...and yet these places are both in a country called Ethiopia. So how does that make sense? What exactly are you trying to protect here? what is it that you will lose if ethnic federalism no longer exists?

    This Somali/Oromo issue is a long issue, it didn't just start from this recent news.
    So a region with mixed ethnic groups is better? It's not like that will make a difference, it doesn't exactly open up way for people to move about because there are language barriers.

    I don’t know what the demographics of welkait and etc are, and have never been there, but that doesn’t mean people who belong to either Amhara or Tigray regions should be expelled because of who they are. People like you are the reason why we will always be going from one regime to another. According to you it’s perfectly fine to expel the 10k Tigrayans who were forced to leave Gondar due to fear of Reprisal because they do not “belong” to said ethnic state. This is what the country is leading to unless the entire system is revamped.

    When I said minority groups I didn’t mean minority on a total ethnic group scale, I meant minority groups of each city and region. If you can’t see the problem with the current system then don’t cry when it comes back to bite you. Tplf is leading Tigray to war with the current system.

    Was is it not Yohannes who faught off the Egyptians and the mahdist when they invaded “Amhara”? Was it not Amharas who died fighting italy at Adwa? Was it not the oromos and Amhara who faught the Bandas for Badme?

    Yes it is better. Why do people enjoy living in Addis? why did you decide you want a vacation house in Hawassa? where you stated "people there don't care about ethnicity and are proud Ethiopians". There is a reason these areas are attractive to people and it's because no one cares who your are and when you go there you are not made to feel a stranger in your own country!

    So basically you want all the benefit of a multi-ethnic city/state as long as it's not in Tigray?

    Please articulate clearly what you think you will lose if ethnic federalism does not exist.

    Where did I say people should be expelled:mindblown:.
    What different does it make making the states non-ethnic based? Whether the Somali region existed or not the Oromo's still went into a predominantly 'Somali' region.
    I do not care whether there is 1 ethnic group or 10,000,000 ethnic groups in Tigray, it is a region not an ethnic group. You do not understand why I mentioned Welkait.
    We won't lose nothing but once it changes, there's no going back.

    And besides, I don't think the majority will like the states to be non-ethnic based, especially the Oromo's:francis:.

    Reality is Oromos want ethnic states, the harars want to maintain their ethnic state, the amhaaras want to keep their ethnic state, and tigreyans want to keep their ethnic state. All this "we're 1 Ethiopia" is fake. :lolbron:

    The reason why the states shouldn’t be ethnic based is because once you make them ethnic based all other people will be considered foreigners, even though they are from said region. It only leads to division and so on. Your words say one thing while your likes say the opposite, which is it Hagos?

    Why do you get triggered by welkait? Is your family originally from there?

    Politically they are different and are referred to differently for distinction
