Hey, if there is chinatown, why not? But I think it will get fierce opposition from whites, given that it kind of awakens them to the fact that black immigrants are coming in. Possible backlash, may be they might tighten entry for black immigrants more than it is already. Interesting to see what happens
Not necessarily, the Ethiopian population of DC is pretty powerful. Essentially all we are talking about is an official name, for all intents and purposes....this area of DC is "little" Ethiopia regardless of the name.
There's also a Little Ethiopia in Los Angeles
Heard about that too.
The Little Ethiopia here in L.A is actually one of my hang out spots....
That's cool Pharaoh Jahil. Little Africa (116th in Harlem, NY) is one of my hang out spots. I don't really like Ethiopian food....but I'm open to trying more!
I've seen some Ethiopians and some of them look like dark skin Arabs or like people from India, do they even consider themselves black?
Ethiopians are most certainly black brother Deepvoice. They have had some mixture with other races (perhaps more so than most other peoples in Africa); however, they are no more "mixed" than African Americans. Why wouldn't they be black? Who is trying to make them into something else?
I've watched The History Channel where it said things like that and also I've heard it in some of my World History Classes.
