Maybe that is the reason they want to come to the United States of America because they want a man who is not traditional Ethiopian or other African national. Even here, many men who are adult by law have a lot of growing up to do and to learn how to respect themselves and others.
I do not have any disrespect for the people of any country which includes all the nations of Africa. But in most tribal areas of Africa the women are considered to be in a lower class than men. There has arisen many women's groups to counter the anti-women sentiment of the ruling men. One of the complaints is that many women are being physically and sexually abused by men including GIRLS under the age of 18 being sold to men and many are being sold to elderly men. Now in some countries of Africa women are being granted equal status by law and now have the right to go to court in an attempt to stop a husband or father from harming them. What I have been telling you is not some thing that I made up. First of all, I have known many African students who come to a large university that is located in my town in the state of Missouri. Also, I have become friends with other Africans who are female. Even the testimony of some of my male African friends have disclosed that women in most African countries have not been given their lawful human rights. The very special Ethiopian woman of the Amhar tribe has stated there are very few opportunities for women in her country. I have heard and read statements of others who plainly stated that few opportunities exist for women in their particular country. Also, as in Ethiopia, many women turn to prostitution or were forced into it as a means of supporting themselves and some times their children. South Korea, in its history, had a similar view of women. Having girl babies was a disgrace because during this time in their history boys were wanted to help the parents work their farms. During this time, the girls were often sold to pimps to bring in money for the pimp. Currently, that situation is well on the way to being stopped. Women in South Korea are slowly being viewed as being equal to men by the government and by the larger companies. What I have written here is not an opinion that I formed without actually knowing any African people. This statement is based on the testimony of many Africans that I have either read or heard. Also, in Ghana a man can have more than one wife which is illegal in a majority of countries of the world. In Viet Nam there is a cultural divide that pits the southern Vietnamese against the northern Vietnamese. But as the male population rapidly decreased in number because of a war, women were sent out to take on the combat duties of the dead men. I must add that some of the comments of some of the men who are on EthioSpot has earned my contempt as their words indicate that they view women ONLY AS SEXUAL OBJECTS. Of course, a woman's appearance does "capture my attention to them" but if that is all a woman has to offer then she is on the same level of these despicable males. Intelligence of a woman is very important, especially, when she has a marriage relationship. I could say a lot more but there are some chores I need to do.
Good reply Jerry I've been to Ethiopia 6 times already an what i've seen is life is hard on the women. They work about 16-18 hours a day taking care of the family and working. Whilea good majority of the men just hangout in the streets with their buddies trying to hustle. Ethiopian women in America are enjoying freedoms they don't have in Ethiopia and The women in Ethiopia are bup under so much pressure from family when they leave Ethiopia be it USA or any other country they enjoy their new freedom most Ethiopian men don't like or can handle these women who are now stronger.
One Ethiopian lady that I know is going to school so that she can have a better life than she can in Ethiopia. She also wishes to help her family when she completes her education.
