You have to participate in election and do your part. I believe in majority vote. One man/woman vote. I believe in a fair and clean election. I believe in democracy,it is not perfect but it is a better system than any other system in the World.
If you have one man one vote, you will have the majority of the government dominated by Oromos, it may not be as bad as it is now where it is Tigre from top to bottom, but still the none Oromo tribes will begin murmering as soon as the democratic government is formed, because the oromos will have the lion's share of the government.
If a black man become the President of the great nation on Earth, what is wrong if majority of Ethiopians vote for the person who have the knowledge and trust to become the president of Ethiopia.?
If that person is an Oromo so what? If that person is an Amhara so what? if that person is a Tigray so what?
Black men may be happy about the election of President Obama, but whites are not, that's why they are buying guns and ammo at unprecedented levels. They are preparing for a race war, because they know he will be elected again. You simply can't win if you have democratic elections in a multi-ethnic society, if you please one ethnic you will displease another. Remeber the lebanon catastrophe, it was cause by democracy in a multi-religion society. India is a mutil-ethnic and multi-religion, democratic nation. there are numerous inter-ethnic conflicts, most notably in Kashmir. Beyond that, the devil may care attitude of the bureaucrats has crippled the economy since independence. All because of mutli-ethnicity.
By comparison Japan and Korea, who are mono-ethnic have shown amazing progress. One day we will all realize what a curse ethnic diversity has been upon Ethiopia.
