  1. They are generally a strange people. Not very freindly with Blacks, in fact most are terrified of us. There are many here in Oakland, California. I wish there were a lot less.

    • We are NOT scared of you. We just don’t want to associate with the violent and brainless African Americans. Please be respectful to all Africans and we can get along fine.

      • Shut your ignorant ass up, you’re likely not even Ethiopian, just a dirty white imitator hoping to spark conflict within the diaspora.

    • show some respect, you are talking about a free people with history that spans 5000 years, a cradle of civilisation; who were never colonised nor defeated by anybody too date. who are you?

    • I’m an African American Black and I’ve never had that experience with Ethiopian Blacks at all..Not I’m only speaking for my experience living in Los Angeles..I usually attract Ethiopian woman.And the times that I had have been very pleasant.

  2. Hi I really love or Appreciate Ethiopian women I wish I could merry one of them they are beautiful. How can I date one.

  3. franclly speaking if u come to ethiopia u have a chance to see not only 30 but 30000 beutifull girls.All of u love u!!.

  4. Great list my brother. I used to attend an Ethiopian Church in Los Angeles several years ago. Women are beautiful and very ancient culture.

  5. they are no doubt beautiful, but I believe u can find beauty every where, no one can possibly go round the whole world. we mostly base our judgments on what we have seen or heard of. when truthfully every people is unique in their own way. what one race has, the other doesn’t.
    these pictures are made up of models and actors, well I think in every one’s culture models are the prettiest. just saying

  6. I read this article before I traveled to Addis Ababa. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the Ethiopian culture is huge here. I was curious about the women. This article motivated me to visit Addis Ababa. I can’t wait to go back. I also referenced this article in my blog.

    • Thanks Eric. I really enjoyed your article about Ethiopia. Going with your Sudanese friend definitely made the trip a lot easier for you. Is English widely spoken? The women are so beautiful plus I hear Addis is a great place to visit.

  7. I’m very close to one here in LA…..love her to moon and back….but she’s crazy in a fun way. If she chills on the craziness we could really be a couple.

  8. Comment: I wish you know a lot more than you heard. b/c it seems to you a joke but it’s real . perhaps you get a chance to see ETHIOPIAN women in your life & you’ve to know they don’t give a shit to your point less drama. a religious people with natural beauty ain’t like any other country . frankly speaking am not saying this just bc am ethiopian it’s true weather you like it or not.

  9. blacks from africa are way nicer and prettier than african americans. people from africa also have manners that most african americans do not have.

  10. Are you crazy??!!!! Liya Afa (current #5) should be #1 by a WIDE margin! That is one of the hottest women of all time!!!!!!!!

    Long hair and thin noses ain’t everything. Open your eyes, man!

  11. what an exitment ! Are these the only? Come and see the untouched beautiful rural Ethiopian ladies.Thier internal beauty is more than this

  12. Number 9 isn’t Miss Ethiopia 2010. It’s a model who lives in Las Vegas named Betty, and her Instagram handle is @beedoelv. Get your facts right. This publication is weak for that, all Ethiopians do not look the same.

  13. To Black American guys who want to date Ethiopian women, there is one thing you should take in mind.
    * the media that has been working against Our Black american brothers seems to convince/influence Ethiopian women. Like americans are aggressive, violent and the like. As an communication scholar, I would recommend how you should break the barriers:
    #1- take 2 minute to memorize 2 Amharic words.ie. konjo, endet nesh? ( hi, lovely) instantly, she gives you warm smile.
    #2, approach her with broad and genuine smile (avoid dry face)
    #3 when speaking to her or someone while she is around, speak humbly (do not shout)
    #4 avoid slurs that is considered to be rude in our culture.
    Note, why is this all? Because what the mass media have been telling the world about the Black Americans is not good. So you need to proved her the perception is wrong. (Keep in mind, even if you two are Blacks, you two have utterly different culture.) Love to you all

  14. Beautifulness dwell on the eyes of beholders,all those names listed have no doubt from the writers but have doubt to the beholder.
