Anonymous: Do you think you're being sensitive by putting up photos of Haile Selassie and then Eritreans? Such a contradiction. Dedicate your page to the Ethiopian history/culture, since that's where you're from. Please leave Eritrea to those who are Eritrean.

Do you think you’re being sensitive by putting up photos of Haile Selassie and then Eritreans? Such a contradiction.

Okay, listen. I don’t support Haile Selassie at all, if you go through the blog you don’t see any individual pictures of him for over a year, and that was back when I wasn’t knowledgeable. I reblogged that photoset for the other images. It did occur to me that maybe I shouldn’t reblog it at all, but since there were other pictures I thought it was fine. My apologies for disrespecting anyone because that was not my intention. I will remove it. If anyone else has any problems or offenses with what I post/reblog please let me know.

As I said, I’m sorry for offending you, but I’ve already answered this kind of message on my own blog. Since I do not feel like explaining myself again I will link it here: http://nigistinaomi.tumblr.com/post/90710826478/why-are-you-running-a-blog-called-ethiopia-and
