    Well, obviously this guy has a problem and he will not tell us but it is not about the law or bla bla bla, however, I have seen a number of Ethiopian homeless in US streets and believe me they're not hungry b/c there're places give out food & shelter, however, most of them have drug/criminal problem & that is hard to fix by an Ethiopian but it may not be his problem but the law apply equal 4 all

    The "secret" US law this poor guy could be referring to is that of announcing the availability of good jobs but "secretly" and systematically giving those jobs to the true citizens (people born/raised in the US) thereby forcing foreigners ('naturalized' citizens) to do low-paying, dead end or dangerous jobs like Taxi.

    This is what I keep saying but so many Ethiopians in Ethiopia are not getting it. The reason the US gives visa lottery is for people from 3rd world countries to come to the US to fill jobs that white americans do not want, either because it is too dangerous (like taxi driving) or too low-paying (like nurse assistant at nursing homes, baby sitting, waiter, security, parking attendant, cook, etc)

    What is the big deal to see one or few Ethiopians becoming homeless? DON'T we have half of Ethiopians homeless on their own country? I say this to you, shut up and look for a job! Take me as an example, came here never spoke English and had to start from scratch,,, Even though, i don't live the best life like those wealthy people. However, I am as happy as i can be! GOD Bless America!

    I dont want to be jujmental but this guy is not telling us THE CAUSE OF HIS HOMLESSNESS. HE BLINDLEY ACUSE THIS COUNTRIES HIDEN LOW WHICH I AM UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND. I CAN FEEL HIS INTERNAL SUFFERING, BUT BLAMING THE LAW, WHICH WE MOST LIVE WITH AND BE SUCSSUSFUL IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. IF BY ANY MEANS WE CAN CHange his life we have to sep up to help him no matter what the cause is and his BAD attitude.

    Sad story, even sadder that EBS TV doesn't seem to provide a mechanism to help this person such as a crowdfund site, contact information...EBS TV please go further than just a transmitter of story. Like in the case of Shewyga Mullah or Ayana, learn from this extreme situations and provide more than just story-telling. We in the Diaspora are shocked by such story and would like to impact directly.

    All people deserve very good life and loans or just commercial loan will make it better. Because people's freedom relies on money.

    where ever you are you have to be honest and
    work hard to be somebody.
    you can take out some one from a getto, but
    you can't take the getto from him'

    Dani, may be u know what u were not suppose to know about how the world works and as the same time u might not be willing to be a tool for the ''hiden law''. But, one thing which I don't understand is '' the hidden law '' make u survive here in the park is might be better than '' the hidden law '' killing so many people in Ethiopia.

    I was on tears watching this video. This is a very intelligent man. We do not know the cause that lead him to the street. Once on street he will be vulnerable to different behavioral problems .... but if this man gets assistance I have no doubt that he can make over again. What is Ethiopian community doing if they are not helping a guy like this- get his papers, detox him, help get a job, counsel

    so we can all sit here and chat away about this man who is in the worst circumstance of life but he won't read it. yes, even to all of us who didn't end up on the street the system in this country is meant to put all minorities (non whites) at the bottom of the ladder of every opportunity. the man does seem intelligent and yet is forced on the become a victim of drug and mental illness

    You raise a good point Ephrem, you can find homless anywhere, any place from any nation, even Americans themself. I symphatize with the Danie, but I don't think it promotes any positive outlook.

    Hiwot your start with a good concept but you got me lost at ur ending. It can take u a life time to build ur life and a few minutes to desroy it for good. Life is not about what u deserve it is what u make of it. This interview would have been interesting if it was abt a homless guy and turn himself to a rich guy dispite all the odds. Right now I don't see the home take message.
