the ethiopian youth has lost the culture of their fathers. They know how to dance and to have fun, but they have lost the value of being ethiopain. They act, think, behave like the west. Instead of being real proud of beeing ethiopian, they associate their culture value with american Stars like Beyounce, Black Eye Pea........The feel more proud of organizing an international conzert than being an erthiopian. I have many ethiopan friends and their love to their motherland ends at the entry door of their appartemnet. I am not saying that they dont love their homeland, but its has no substance. There is no passion. They have no value to uphold, except their deeply and honest believe in god.
The ethiopian youth can do 3 thing: 1. Having fun 2. going to church 3. trieng to be like the west
The ethiopian youth have no commitement for politcal issues. Its sad but true
On the contrary the most of the eritrean youth find their identitity through political involvement.
