PAGAN 9JA:


that is not our history. We are descendants of free-men. Amazigh as the Tuareg people say.

We should start considering ourselves as such and input some pride and dignity in ourselves. only then we will be able to crush our enemies and scorners. wink
lol ok

PAGAN 9JA:


The Yorubas never sold their own people. They sold criminals and POWs from other tribes. THey did not know what would be the status of the slaves once they got into oyinbo hands and how they would be treated. The concept of slavery in Africa was very different from the oyinbo one. Even Arabs treat their slaves better.

You are right though. Todays Yorubas have attempted to sell of everything. but we must not deny that Yorubas are the only tribe here in Nigeria with the greatest Traditionalist population and they have preserved most of the knowledge. This has given them worldwide acclaim.
i dnt know much abt yoruba history, am only refering to africans generally. The fact that we allow ourselves to be captured and sold into slavery. Imagine, no country in west africa refused to be colonized or continue their way of life while they learn one or two things from the whites like china and some asian countries. By the way the crimials sold by the yorubas were also blacks which doesnt make any difference

you are again getting driven by African-American concepts and sentiments. Here in Africa, it is different. We are not racists. we hardly care for skin colour. What matters here is tribal lineage. From the Yoruba perspective, they don't care for any other tribes. What matters is the survival and benifit of their own people, which is right and which is the reason what tribes are meant for anyways. As for sympathy based on skin colour, forget it. The Early Pagan Africans welcomed the colonizers and missionaries with open arms and hospitality. Little did they know that they would be taken advantage of in such a cruel way. For them skin colour hardly matterd. SKin colour is just a phenotype that can change with time and conditions. What matters is Tribe & Ethnicity. Even Nationality (which can change due to the current political scenario) doesn't matter as much as tribe/ethnicity.

No African fought slavery and colonisation? What do you think happened to this Benin king when he fought?

Abiyamọ: After the marriage (which was quickly done so she could follow him), they set off to Nigeria. No, wait. They did not fly to Nigeria. They actually drove all the way across North Africa, past the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, through the stifling heat and chilly cold of the Sahara Desert. Finally, they reached in early 1950.

Please how can i get the map they used in navigating through these places ?
I need to move out of 9ja as fast as possible.. grin grin grin

Very true. Especially of Brazilians and Latin Americans in general. For example, there are tons of videos on you-tube showing descendants of Yorubas all over the world attempting to keep the traditions alive. I was even doing a totally unrelated search, and found this:

"Aguanile is a Yoruba word (A language from west africa). In salsa it stems from the Afro-Cuban religion called Santería. You hear it (and other santería phrases) a lot in Cuban salsa. Most often you hear the full phrase "Aguanile mai mai" and it is part of the toque for the saint (orisha) Oggun."

PAGAN 9JA:


MINE TOO! I am Hausa and I have my own Gods, but on one of my examination day, a Babalawo friend of mine gave me a concotion recipe and he too made the same in his place. Then on the said exam day, we both drank it at the same time. (I was abroad @ that time). Before drinking it , we prayed to Orunmilla over the concoction. And then my exams went very well, even though I had studied the day before.

Never knew PAGAN 9JA is Hausa!!! shocked

I think it's simultaneously sad and hilarious that this thread is made celebrating an oyinbo celebrating Orishas when the same forum regularly denounces Nigerians who do the same thing. It is a reminder that most black people won't even take a step unless they think oyinbos will approve of the direction. Soyinka is most disappointing.
