Should photographs focus on prestige projects?[edit]

The photos in the infobox tended to give an impression of a hypermodern town, next to New York only. But this is only a few square kilometers of Addis Ababa. I think photos of a city need to include the "real" city not (only) the prestige projects. Hence I replaced some photos with average urban habitat (not the shanty towns) and a streetscene that is very common in the town. Rastakwere (talk) 13:40, 9 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Next to York only"? This image which you have persistently thrown out in an edit-warring manner (EW-warning is out, so that's handled) displays an average urban metropolitan city which are a dime a dozen all over the globe. Adding a more mixed flavor to the gallery with "authentic" street-life is perfectly ok, but obviously, Addis Ababa is multi-faceted. –Austronesier (talk) 12:01, 10 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Addis Ababa is, just that, Addis Ababa[edit]

Someone claimed finfinne to be the real name of the capital city of Ethiopia. I would like to kindly remind that person that Addis Ababa never was colonized, in fact, it is quite important to remember that the Oromo people invaded Ethiopia.

Now, today, these people have blended with Ethiopians and are called Ethiopians themselves. However the Oromo people are not indigenous people of Ethiopia, and as such, the name of the capital city is not up for discussion, in fact, even if it was they have absolutely no say in the matter.

It is important to understand that the fact that the Oromo people invaded Ethiopia does not make them less Ethiopian, however the Oromization or Oromumma if you like, is something that the Ethiopian people will not accept, under any circumstances. This person who claimed Addis Ababa to have been colonized and anyone who agrees, should revise some history (and not fabricated lies, propaganda, and fictional stories told by tsegaye ararsa and his likes), it sure will be hard to realize that the Oromo invasion is closer to colonization than whatever lies these people choose to believe.

To a country that has sheltered you, this is not how you pay it forward. So the point here is, as Ethiopians, you get to call Addis Ababa Finfinne in your language, but it is not something that should be changed to Finfinne officially. There are many cities and provinces who unfortunately did not get to keep their original names due to the Oromo invasion, without taking pride in the horrific ways that it went about, these changes should have the Oromo people feeling content as of today. If anything, the name of the capital should be changed to Berera, or Addis Abeba.

If you can, be Ethiopians. It might not be an easy task with a heart full of such hatred, but give it a try. Respect is earned, so respect the names and the other languages apart from your own, not everything revolves around you. You created a problem, meaning you can solve it too. The current blame game will not lead you anywhere, as it is not based on facts. May God lead you on to the right path! (talk) 06:45, 18 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Absolutely right!!! This Wikipedia page is political propaganda. Nothing else. Mihos11 (talk) 22:30, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I would have thought that Amharic was the original language of Ethiopia, of the Ethiopian Release and elite. As far as i know, the Oromo are not even Ethiopian-orthodox. --Universal-Interessierterde (talk (de)) 21:16, 8 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
