Mr. Limbaugh, what does an Ethiopian Look Like?

Let us start by this quotation:
On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh attacked First Lady Michelle Obama for not looking skinny enough. Limbaugh said, “The point is. If you are going to do this, if you are going to tell everyone to eat twigs and berries and gravel and all this other stuff, you’d better look like an Ethiopian.”
The famous conservative radio host Mr Rush Limbaugh commented on the America First Lady's dietary recently and referred to her food discipline derogatorily as "looking like an Ethiopian". What does an Ethiopian look like?

Well, his allusion here is to the great Ethiopian famine through which pictures of hunger stricken children of Ethiopia were implanted in the Western mind. As many ill informed media people of the west, Mr. Limbaugh knows only the famine about Ethiopia and the Ethiopians. If he could get the chance to get the ordinary world history and read books, he would have definitely known what an Ethiopian looks like: the proud people, the brave people, the intelligent people, the beautiful people, my people.

Thank you dear blogger for bringing up this news the Rushing Dirty Minded Rush Limbaugh , who is Obese(with BMI of >30) and who got extra fat not only on his body but also in his brain which blocking his mind from thinking right, which can't see and read about Ethiopia and Ethiopians who don't suffer from High cholesterol, Hypertension , Diabetes, like fat- accumulated pork , in fact we don't eat pork religiously and beside that it's almost eating pork-like-people like fatty-rushed Rush Limbaugh who never got a chance to eat organic food which all Ethiopians eat daily . So All healthy minded people dream to be like Ethiopians and of course Obama(who got healthy mind to lead the country and who got t lucky to marry Michelle( who is smart enough planning to look like Ethiopians) is from families of Kenya who are next to Ethiopia!!!
Ethiopians are proud to be Ethiopians !!!!!

there are a lot of peoples out there that have the same idea as this lame man! the truth is we haven't done anything to show our good image and we haven't done anything to hide our bad image which is famine....so this shows we have to strive hard to change this image.

Even though hasty generalization as some ill-minded person like Mr. Rush Limbaugh is not good, it is untollerable to keep quite to such words that comes out of tiny mind but drum sized mouths. Had I had the "willingness" to meet this guy, I would have quoted a saying from my beloved country Ethiopia telling him that " An Empty drum makes big noise".

Ephraem,
I appreciate your concern for our people. However, it is not big deal if a college /high school drop out, Rush Limbaugh symbolizes Ethiopia in a derogatory fashion. These guy and some three others- Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Bill O'realy are indicators that America is declining. Their mind is stagnant. They are full of hatred. They cannot see beyond North America.
God bless you all.

am not sure he is referring back to the starvation time or this time. We have a perfect body size and shape which they always wish to have. they pay a lot of money, waste a lot of energy and time to come to our body size. However, i can not deny that unbalanced diet and shortage of food have significant impact in our weight. There are a lot of people who don't eat twice a day and if they did, it is just to fill their stomach not for the healthy functioning of the body. I don't think we should spend to much energy telling and showing him we not skinny because we are and which is a good thing. As my opinion, it would be great if we concerned about how to ensure our people make them eat twice a day.

The question is what have we done to erase that history! I have read some article back in the time that HaileSilassie giving a support of 1000 pound to Britain. No one could believe such a history.If we succeed, If few we made it happen no one could raise any bad history. we will not even feel it. Because it will remain being a history in the past. The other thing is its undeniable that our look is so beautiful that everyone wishes to have it....we are damn proud of what we are...:)

People in the wold passed though famine.In Europe people starved and forced to eat their kinds human beings.In 70th and 80 th Ethiopia experienced famine ,drought and starvation,and recently or/and presently east African nations are fighting starvation including Ethiopia.Hunger is here and their in the world like south east Asia, Africa.We should overcome this by working hard and unite to change our country towards development.I would like to tell Mr.Limb to visit Ethiopia and to help to wards development.He may well know the people of Ethiopia and may change is ways of thinking about Ethiopia.

I think we Ethiopians hate a negative comments. ምንትስ ያለበት ዝላይ አይችልም እንዲሉ፡፡ I have seen a lot of comments like the said guy speech, but I never have taken them negatively. The speakers implication might't positive. However, we should also realize that negative comments are one way of alarming where we are, who we are and what action we should take next.
