    i know ethiopia looks nice.

  • Is this question a joke or are you serious. Girl the GDP for Ethiopia is $850. That means that an average Ethiopian family lives on about $65 a month. A little over $2 dollars a day. Ethiopia is nowhere close to Rich, and it shouldnt even be in the same sentence as Chicago. The average Chicagoan makes $42,000 a year, how the heck do you compare that to 2 dollars a day. And I agree, Ethiopia is not as bad as it seems. people usually think that we are all dying of hunger and poverty but there are parts of Ethiopia that are well off. There are people in Ethiopia who live decent lives, but the vast majority of Ethiopians are living in poverty, extreme poverty. Our economy is growing, and hopefully we will become a developed nation in the future but dont lie to yourself that we are rich. ANd "Haylee" you are not White, and you are not an American, you are 100% Ethiopian. I know this because Americans dont care about any country in Africa, and they wouldnt post a stupid question like this on here. I mean any American who visits Africa is smart enough to know that it is nothing like the states.

    yeah! what was it suppose to look like? you mean this is how chicago looks like? stop daydreaming, you were just in the cities and thought everything was like that, no. i have nothing against ethiopia and have never been there but ah come on ethiopia is just ethiopia, read a question here about ethiopia vs namibia, you will find out that some ethiopians think is the best country in africa. God bless africa!
