DO NOT DEVALUE THE BIRR: Ignore the World Bank! By Tecola W Hagos

“… I have studied many ethnic communities throughout the past history of the United States. None have I found that hate and disparage the governments of their respective original home countries as much as many of the Ethiopian Diasporas do, which led me to conclude that Ethiopians in general love the abstract notion of an Ethiopia, but hate and disrespect the concrete Ethiopians right next to us…” (Tecola W. Hagos).
