VPRO Metropolis : Hello to you VPRO Metropolis fans! So, do you eat raw meat? Do you eat #meat at all? Or are you #vegan? Would you share your opinion about meat with us? See you next week for a new video on VPRO Metropolis!

Benny D : I'm proudly Ethiopian but I don't eat raw meat. I prefer mine cooked! But some ignorant people will always post stupid comments such as this is 'cannibalism' etc... The world is diverse and Ethiopia is one of the most culturally rich countries on the globe so before posting an ignorant comments, try to understand the history of that nation😉

Reasonable Faith : I do not want to impede on others cultures, but I'll pass on the raw meat and have my halaal meat well done and seasoned. Lol. Peace.

Cool Dude : So what? People eat sushi it's raw fish.. I don't see any difference raw meat is raw fish or beef

Ray Mak : I would really really love to have a chance to try some

YouKube : The guy that does most of the talking here. Every time he ends his sentence his voice cracks and it sounds he's still going through puberty... Lol.

Pulp Fiction : its not extreme , do you know tartare?? its common in Italy to

IamShe : Omg... I guess their bodies build up tolerance. I hate the smell of raw meat so I don't see how they can do it.

Lisa C. Curvello : For all those desinformed comments talking about parasites: Have you heard about carpaccio or steak tartare? Hello?

Harihara Sarma : Each guy is having two-two knives with him while eating and drinking. Any argument, there will be a blood bath.

sesame : Amharic is one of my favorite languages

LaceRedRose : I think if you start eating it while you're young your body you can tolerate it better

jj jkj : NO Ethiopian has an answer to the question of why they eat meat raw, no one. But I heard that, this is the result of wars. They were not able to put on fire in the evening for fearing that the fire could lead their enemies(Ahmed Gurey..or the left-handed Ahmed. a leader who occupied and ruled this area between 1400 -1500 ) to their positions, where they were hiding and so it went until they claim that,this is their tradition after 500 years. liars!

desertflwrs : Ethiopian beef is organic and these guys have eaten it their whole lives ok, I wouldn’t try it in the U.S. though

BaShhhka Bashhh : They have been forced to eat raw meat by somalia in 1977 Ogadenia War when somalia conquered most of Habasha land to save Eritrea and minor communities from Amhara. That was long time ago. I hope they will stop eating raw meat which hosts bacteria,viruses and other dangerous micro organisms that need to be boiled in order to denature them. The war has ended and now you have fire to cook it why don't you cook it?

Johan Michael : That slight pitch at every end of a sentence that guy makes is endearingly funny.

Beth g : Soo for all the confused people. No Ethiopia is not starting the famine ended in 1985. Meat is eaten like this becase it's our culture like how Japanese people eat raw fish on sushi or Americans eat rare steak or raw oysters. Also Somalians never forced us to raw meat.

Sir Burhaan : Somali sultanate Forced to eat row 16th century.

Shing Fung Tse : Well, it is not uncommon to eat raw food, Japanese have sashimi, Italian have tartare, so raw beef is not really a surprise.

Bekele Daba : These shameless nomad Zoomali trolls are all over on any Ethiopian video. They feel good whenever they comment negatively about Ethiopia. They cant even keep their country together.

tom tom : I prefer eating mine a little more raw and fresher. When I see a cow, I just jump on his back (like a lion) and bite hard into his neck. Then I like to enjoy eating the cow fresh in the field. Delicious.

A W : ጠሬ ስጋ መብላት ለተለያዩ በሽታወች ያጋልጣል በተለይ ለስኳር ለደም ግፌት ለሪህ ባጠቃላይ በወጣትነታችሁ ይህን ያህል ጥሬ ስጋ ከመመገብ ቀነሰ አድርጉት

Frank White : Relax people I worked as a sous chef for years in a big city .White people upper class people eat raw meat all the time in public. Thanks asked for blue steak.some just keep denying it back and till u just put it on a plate right out the cooler

My name is no My number is no : Somalis forced them to eat raw meat

Plane Jane : I ate Doro Wot, and Kitfo recently and it was delicious! The waiter tried to get me to eat something more for the American palate, but I refused. I will be eating it more often, I loved it.

Cry Baby : How is this wierd at all? I'm Canadian and eat raw meat in various forms, such as sushi, tartare, rare steak stays red in the middle.... I wouldn't eat chicken or pork raw but doesn't look like they do either.

محمد هوساوي : ብሉ ምናለባቹ ሰው እደ ቤቱ እጂ እደ ጎሮቤቱ አይኖርም

Bobby Oluwafemi : You guys are bunch of cannibals

windmill1965 : Raw beef in Ethiopia, raw horse meat in Japan (basashi).

Shin Min : as we all know the region of Ethiopia back then was the Cradle of civilization. and all of our ancestors came from that region.

The Real Reason : RAW AF

Bongo Head : raw beef is actually delicious. you guys never had carpaccio tartar or sashimi?

misbah abdus salaam : Cannibalism at its peak

Don S : To all those who say eww and yuck and parasites... And look down at this tradition as low, lemme remind you of Tartare of Italy and Sushi of Japan. Sushi sounds so pish posh ehh...

Dark Chocopuff : I thought only Westerners(certain countries), Japanese, Koreans, and native tribes are eating meat raw but it seems common in other cultures. Coincidence? Anyway, mine is a minced raw beef mixed up with some spices and served with hot rice.

mike A1 : All a know next time you going to eat your friend

Wadjet : *it's not like they don't know better🙄*

roble mohamed : In the 15th century the Ethiops (Abyssinia then) tried to invade a Somali Sultanate under Sultan Ahmed Gurrey the Great with his capital city in Harar. They were brutally crushed by the Somalis who conquered Abbysinia and ruled them (Amir Nur) for 82 years and since the Ethiopians ran into forests and could not cultivate or cook because they feared the Somalis will see the smoke and come for them, they resorted to hunting and eating raw meat. First forward..... 21st century and the Ethiopians are still eating raw meat... Thanks to Ahmed Gurrey the Great, Conqueror of the Horn of Africa.

Abas Dalabey : I just threw up in my mouth. Ethiopians, my dear neighbours to the north stop with this raw meat eating. Damn this is really sad

First Last : Maybe it's fine if freshly butchered


charlo patolo : My Indian grand parents use to give me raw beef as well as a youth but as we got older as cultural stigmas and “taboo” became more prominent it almost vanished from my community. Some families mite still do this but I don’t see it again . The west has made bad names for so many great traditions ..Trinidadian 🇹🇹

Abdul Azizi : You know why Dey eating this raw meat coz back to 1500 there was a war between Somali and Ethiopia so when ever they (Ethiopians ) try to make meals somali army attack them and defeat so after that Dey never try cook meat that why they still eat without out cooking
