Why do some Somalis claim to not be Arabs?

Somalis and Berbers are the only Afro-Asiatic speakers unaffected by Mesolithic movements from the Middle East.
We're on on average 40% eurasian(via Neolithic farmers). We were originally north africans who migrated to the horn and mixed with black africans along the way.

Somalis only carry the Natufian component, but lack all the other Middle Eastern components (newer ones).

Berbers (unmixed ones) are the same in this respect.

People like modern Egyptians and Ethiopians carry newer Semitic components.

it always confused me when Somalis claim to not be Arab. A lot of us speak Arabic, We're even part of the Arab league and we are clearly mixed with Arabs (which explains are Caucasian features). Heck our language has a lot of Arabic words. The only question is why do Somalis not want to be Arabs? Is it self hatred?
