The nomad was the biggest security risk because they were the ones helping the colonizer so they can get a few new trinkets.

All maxaa tiri Somalis have at one point in history been nomads and that's why they were classed as the noble clans, while the other clans that did not, were looked down upon.

Complete lie, half my family is from Zayla and other coastal urban centers. Only the interior plains were nomads.

What about before zayla existed?
Some Somalis settled into cities earlier than others, but that doesn't mean they weren't nomads

Zayla is one of the oldest cities in Africa, what do you mean before? We were known as Avalites (Awdalies) by the Jews and Romans

Again this is the problem I have with Somalis, they want to force the Nomad narrative on anyone, but want to claim Somali empires and achievements, that were not done by nomads. Yusuf Al Kownayn was not a nomad, Ahmed Gurey was not a nomad, all of our top figures were not nomads. That should be a clue.

So do you actually believe 3000 years ago that Somalis were city dwellers.

Humans went from hunter gatherers into either farmers or nomads. Unless your from certain rahanweyn clans or tradesmen like Tumaal and Yibir, then your ancestors were nomads before they settled into city life. This is a fact
 
People are really in here ka faanin nomads and pastoralism like the culture, clothing, geeljire/somali name doesn't come from that. Cajiib. Guaranteed yall had some nomadic pastoralists in your family.

Bunch of self-hating kids that grew-up in the West.
