    What a nice show you come up with for this week? It is up lifting, entertaining and commanding.It manifests the power of a free media. I am not sure how many people are watching your show at this point. We have to make sure that all Ethiopians with internet access knows about the show and watch it on a regular basis. A show like this week is so powerful, it can shack the whole nation of Ethiopia. That is why Meles(Woyannes) don’t want the Ethiopia people to have access for a free media. Free media servives only when it reflects the truth and the majority people heart bit. As we all know, if there is true, there is no Woyanne. When the good will of the Ethiopian people manifests, the evil Woyannes sprite disappears.

    Keep it up abugida!

    With much respect,

    Hello there, I am really happy about how good your website is. Your TV program is also wonderful. I also want to point out a couple points you guys can do better at.

    1) When ever you refer to Prim. Minister Meles Zenawi, make sure to call him prime minister and not just Ato Meles. It is disrespectful to our country. It makes it look like how Somalian clan leaders are leaders but no one is leading the country. That’s what’s called a failed state. That’s when a country is no more functional. So, every time you don’t call the recent prime Minister a prime minister, you are calling our country a failed state and I don’t expect it from any country loving organization. you can call the prime minister “The cruel, unelected, …prime minister of Ethiopia” but never fail to mention that our country has a representative.

    2) Every time you refer to Ethiopian military, specially when you refer to external issues like the one we have with Somalia, make sure to never call it “Weyane’s military”. We know that a big count of the national military is on the Ethiopian people’s side. They have shown the fact that our elected leaders have been imprisoned. They couldn’t do much to help free our leaders just because EPRDF has it’s big arm up on them. But they sure stood up to protect their country’s sovereignty. They gave their lives in Somalia and Eritrea for the sovereignty of our beloved country. At least that’s their belief when they gave their life to the war. So, every time we call the national military “woyane military” we are disrespecting the honorable heroes. It disrespects those who died for the purpose. It also challenges the fact that our country is not a failed state where independent military personnel take over the country with no one really being a leader. I seriously recommend that you correct these things.

    3) The other thing I want to talk about is that we don’t need a TV station (program) that supports one political party explicitly. We have Ethiopian television who sided with EPRDF. If what we have here is a CUD television, we are really not doing anything new to the public. We need an independent television for the first time. That was the vision of the CUD leaders. At least let’s honor the imprisoned heroes. We should be able to show the public and the government that an all inclusive and independent TV program is possible. Let’s try to live by example.

    4)I believe that many of the opposition parties and their media outlet have been siding with the Somalia Islamists while their intention was to find a reason to oppose EPRDF. we have to believe that even though EPRDF is not a good government to our country, it sometimes does some things right. If we claim that everything that a person does is wrong, then we probably have hatred. Even the devil can’t do everything wrong. He sometimes does some wonderful things unknowingly. If we want to be the better person than EPRDF and we want to go ahead with the peaceful process that our imprisoned leaders started, we have to acknowledge when EPRDF does some things right from an Ethiopian point of view. If we tell some one that every thing he does is wrong we can never have a peaceful agreement with the person. let’s make sure to call them by the name they prefer to be called “EPRDF” and not “woyane”. Try to make your media outlet more reliable and not just a propaganda outlet. I have felt very bad about almost all opposition party media outlets and websites. They all have been media outlets of the Somalia Islamic court for a while. How disrespectful is that to our country. All they did was a blind opposition against EPRDF and not giving any consideration to the damage they caused to our country by making our country look like it is against the Muslim religion when almost half of the population is Muslim. I hope that Abugida won’t join their party.

    For the heart and soul you guys put in to the television program and to serve the public, you guys deserve to be better by correcting the mistakes.

    The man who wrote the above essey seems to pretend like he is on the side of the people…trust me HE IS NOT!!! He is trying to get us to do something in favor of Meles!! It’s time we stop being neutral between victims (Ethiopians) and the victimizer (TPLF). Why would someone be so concerned about the title ( ato or PM) of a mass murderer when there are so many other suggestions he can make to make us improve. We were not born yesterday!!!

    On the January 27 TV program reporting the location where the korela spreding you used “Amare zone, Oromo and ..gelemele…. What happen to those provinces , cities , woredas ? Don’t you think it will be more appropriate to use them and will help people to understand the exact location of the problem?
    Woyane used it to divide the people and we should drop some of woyane habites to woyanes.
    Thank You

    To the person called “Wey Hagere”, there is something you need to understand. One of the problems the politics in Ethiopia is the fact that two different views have never worked together. Either it is the EPRDF’s way or the CUD’s way or any other political group’s way. we need to start to work together, accept criticism and improve. Listen to yourself and do you call yourself an Ethiopian? Do you call yourself a person so worried about the future of Ethiopia? or are you just one of the wanna be sympathesizers? If you give me a logical point like the one I made to correct me if I did wrong, I will be willing to correct my mistakes. I believe you need to learn how to take criticism. But casting some one as weyanne or any other political group is not to bring any solution to Ethiopia’s problems.

    Diversity and Multiculturalism: The New Racism

    By Michael S. Berliner, Ph.D., and Gary Hull, Ph.D.

    Is ethnic diversity an “absolute essential” of a college education? UCLA’s Chancellor Charles Young thinks so. Ethnic diversity is clearly the purpose of affirmative action, which Young is defending against a long-overdue assault. But far from being essential to a college education, such diversity is a sure road to its destruction. “Ethnic diversity” is merely racism in a politically correct disguise.

    Many people have a very superficial view of racism. They see it as merely the belief that one race is superior to another. It is much more than that. It is a fundamental (and fundamentally wrong) view of human nature. Racism is the notion that one’s race determines one’s identity. It is the belief that one’s convictions, values and character are determined not by the judgment of one’s mind but by one’s anatomy or “blood.”

    This view causes people to be condemned (or praised) based on their racial membership. In turn, it leads them to condemn or praise others on the same basis. In fact, one can gain an authentic sense of pride only from one’s own achievements, not from inherited characteristics.

    The spread of racism requires the destruction of an individual’s confidence in his own mind. Such an individual then anxiously seeks a sense of identity by clinging to some group, abandoning his autonomy and his rights, allowing his ethnic group to tell him what to believe. Because he thinks of himself as a racial entity, he feels “himself” only among others of the same race. He becomes a separatist, choosing his friends “”and enemies “”based on ethnicity. This separatism has resulted in the spectacle of student-segregated dormitories and segregated graduations.

    The diversity movement claims that its goal is to extinguish racism and build tolerance of differences. This is a complete sham. One cannot teach students that their identity is determined by skin color and expect them to become colorblind. One cannot espouse multiculturalism and expect students to see each other as individual human beings. One cannot preach the need for self-esteem while destroying the faculty which makes it possible: reason. One cannot teach collective identity and expect students to have self-esteem.

    Advocates of “diversity” are true racists in the basic meaning of that term: they see the world through colored lenses, colored by race and gender. To the multiculturalist, race is what counts “”for values, for thinking, for human identity in general. No wonder racism is increasing: colorblindness is now considered evil, if not impossible. No wonder people don’t treat each other as individuals: to the multiculturalist, they aren’t.

    Advocates of “diversity” claim it will teach students to tolerate and celebrate their differences. But the “differences” they have in mind are racial differences, which means we’re being urged to glorify race, which means we’re being asked to institutionalize separatism. “Racial identity” erects an unbridgeable gulf between people, as though they were different species, with nothing fundamental in common. If that were true “”if “racial identity” determined one’s values and thinking methods “”there would be no possibility for understanding or cooperation among people of different races.

    Advocates of “diversity” claim that because the real world is diverse, the campus should reflect that fact. But why should a campus population “reflect” the general population (particularly the ethnic population)? No answer. In fact, the purpose of a university is to impart knowledge and develop reasoning, not to be a demographic mirror of society.

    Racism, not any meaningful sense of diversity, guides today’s intellectuals. The educationally significant diversity that exists in “the real world” is intellectual diversity, i.e., the diversity of ideas. But such diversity “”far from being sought after “”is virtually forbidden on campus. The existence of “political correctness” blasts the academics’ pretense at valuing real diversity. What they want is abject conformity.

    The only way to eradicate racism on campus is to scrap racist programs and the philosophic ideas that feed racism. Racism will become an ugly memory only when universities teach a valid concept of human nature: one based on the tenets that the individual’s mind is competent, that the human intellect is efficacious, that we possess free will, that individuals are to be judged as individuals “”and that deriving one’s identity from one’s race is a corruption “”a corruption appropriate to Nazi Germany, not to a nation based on freedom and independence.
