|Crime / Re: Traffic Robbers Union Reacts Over Arrest Of Members by abbey621(m): 5:04pm On May 11|
True but you know how Yoruba households behave. You must be a doctor, lawyer or Engineer. Any other is frowned upon.....lol
|Crime / Re: Traffic Robbers Union Reacts Over Arrest Of Members by abbey621(m): 1:45pm On May 11|
It's simple, the average Yoruba boy must go to school before learning trade. The parents and even the community will not allow most boys to abandon school without fierce resistance and shaming. This is the reason why you have more educated Yorubas than any other tribe in Nigeria but this comes at a cost of not actively participating in trades hence why Yorubas are more likely to travel out, settle for a desk job or even stay at home depending on inheritance. Our boys are theoretical while Igbo and Hausa boys are practical, each with its own benefits and disadvantages!

Absolutely and it is so glaring that he is lying but come on this is Trump. The man who has exaggerated his income for years, who faked a phone call and seems to always over hype himself. Let's be honest, Trump is not a saint, I'm not even sure he believes in God but does he care about businesses in America and the economy? ABSOLUTELY! I know that the man gives you a lot to hate but quite frankly I didn't vote for him because I liked him, I voted for him because he represents a middle finger to the last administration.

Good let's agree to disagree and no need for resentment, it was a simple two part question not a statement. For clarity purpose I'll highlight it below:
how many of those can think objectively for themselves without relying on CNN? How many of them actually voted?
There's no need to answer, just reflect. End of discussion and God bless!

For every point you make, I can easily attribute them to him being a wealthy, spoiled brat rather than a racist. In the early 90s, Hilary called black men SUPER PREDATORS and was instrumental in passing a law targeting black men, yet she is not called a racist. Trump is a New Yorker and most New Yorkers would rather have the mafia or Italians counting their money back in the 90s. The central park 5 issue I already explained most Americans were guilty of accusing those men wrongly, so nothing racist there. Black listing blacks from renting his property once again most businesses were guilty of this back in the 80s and 90s, some were lucky not to get caught. Everything else you mentioned is just plain politics, you say 90 percent of black Americans find him deplorable but how many of those can think objectively for themselves without relying on CNN? How many of them actually voted? As a black man myself, I know my people can only make mouth online, when it comes to action we are as spineless as they come. Trump is a blabbermouth borderline childish spoiled man but he is no racists. If he was good enough to donate to several Democrats' campaigns and be toasted as the darling of American entertainment surely he is not RACIST! I'm not trying to convince you to like Trump, just giving you something to think about before condemning a man as the next Hitler!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Obama’s Reaction To Donald Trump Pulling Out Of The Iranian Nuclear Deal by abbey621(m): 2:10am On May 10|
What evidence do you have that Trump thinks of blacks as subhuman? I challenge you to go back 12 to 15 years ago and see what you find about Trump. You'll be surprised he was adored by the democrats and the same media who now label him as a racist. Trump's businesses employs blacks and Latinos just as much as most American companies so this let's you know Trump's rhetoric is just for the show, I can't really blame him much, it's the only way he could win. I also have 2 guns but I don't plan on living in the USA forever, 9ja is still home no matter how jagajaga it may be.

Klan members YES but those wanting to preserve monuments such as that of Robert E. Lee, not so much. I lived mostly in the South and there are two types of whites: those who are ignorantly racists and those who are not racists but come from racists families. The first type there is no hope but for the second ones, some of them are surprisingly more open minded than I thought, they don't want to see their family history completely wiped out. Sorry you almost got lynched but not all whites are bad.

I have no doubt they despise me and I am not making an excuse for the demented mad man who ran the woman over, I'm just saying not all of them were there to hurt people, some were just exercising their right to assemble peacefully. Some were there to protest removal of statues, some were there to advocate for white supremacy, it's unfortunate that the media continues to label all of them as evil and the ones that came to counter them as saints. Sometimes things are not always black and white!

Yea anyone that disagrees with your opinion is a racist....got it! America is a nation of laws, just because you don't like something does not mean you can infringe on their rights! The White Supremacists have the right to hold rallies as long as they can get a permit, the same way gays, trans and so on have the right to their rallies. I noticed you won't blame the state or city government which issued the permit
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Obama’s Reaction To Donald Trump Pulling Out Of The Iranian Nuclear Deal by abbey621(m): 5:03pm On May 09|
Trump is a blabbermouth and often says things without having all the facts, this was one of those examples but so did majority of Americans at that time, the initial evidence against them seemed overwhelming and most Americans listening to the media already condemned them to death. Once again the problem here is the MEDIA, they can kill or save you depending on how they choose to cover the story!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Obama’s Reaction To Donald Trump Pulling Out Of The Iranian Nuclear Deal by abbey621(m): 4:48pm On May 09|
My guy you are spewing nonsense! Omarosa is a two timing attention seeker, the fact that you consider her a good source is laughable. She is hated by both the white and black communities. Furthermore Trump never singled out black NFL players, rather he said any player who does not stand for the national anthem is a SOB and should be fired, we have white players who kneel so your example of racism is weak! Finally Charlottesville was a mixture of many events, white supremacists with a valid permit to hold their rally, counter protesters determined to stop them and the ineffective police. The beautiful thing about America is that you are allowed to peacefully protest anything, from gay rights to white nationalism. The counter protesters were the invaders here and the police should have had the foresight to predict violence. You want to blame Trump because that is what you read in the media but facts are facts, one group had a valid permit and the other determined to infringe on their constitutional rights. Yes as a black man, I am appalled by white supremacists but that does not give me the right to stop their rallies. The real culprit here is the Virginia government which granted them the permit in the first place!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Obama’s Reaction To Donald Trump Pulling Out Of The Iranian Nuclear Deal by abbey621(m): 4:15pm On May 09|
Everything I've said is facts and you can read more about them through simple Google search. If any of his nephews felt cheated there is the legal system for that. Finally, think about this quote from Forbes and argue with your keyboard if you still don't understand:
Forbes awarded Donald Trump five out of 10 on its self-made scale, a number the publication says indicates that he "inherited a small or medium-size business and made it into a[b] ten-digit fortune[/b]".
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Obama’s Reaction To Donald Trump Pulling Out Of The Iranian Nuclear Deal by abbey621(m): 3:37pm On May 09|
Your facts are skewed! His father did not die until much later, I'm talking about his initial loans, $1 million in the 1970s and a couple of millions after that. When his father died he gained control of some of his properties/businesses which were about $200 million but he only had 25 to 30% ownership in them. What made Trump into a Billionaire was his ability to invest heavily in Manhattan at a time when Manhattan was a sh**hole. Before his inheritance Trump already owned or partially owned over 10 businesses, most of them failed but he was already heavily invested. He has a net worth today anywhere between 3.5 Billion to 10 Billion dollars, so assuming he did have full ownership of $200 million business, he made a profit of minimum 1750%, either way you spin it, the man remains a genius and a wealthy one at that! Finally Trump did not escalate the racial issues in America, it started long before Trump. The Democrats use race as bait to get the colored people votes and after the election they do nothing for colored people. Police brutality under Obama was at an all time high and he just kept silent, so while it is easy to blame Trump for everything wrong in America; the real problem goes far beyond Trump!

Any man that can turn a million dollar loan into 100s of millions is a genius to me. If it was so easy many people would do it even with their basic life. For example I'm sure you have 100k in your account can you turn that 100k into 1 million? Let's not knock down someone's achievements just because we don't like him or her. Yes Obama's rise to the presidency was miraculous but as the first black president of the USA, I expected more, I expected black lives to matter more, I expected him to develop benefits which targets the black communities especially the ghetto. I expected him to do something about gun violence and police brutality especially against black folks but rather Obama acted like puppet scared to offend anyone and ultimately history will judge him based on what he did for his people. For example: Who's done more for the black race? Abraham Lincoln or Obama? This is the type of enlightening discussions I love to have, not sentimental crap fed on by the media and political establishments. You might not like Trump but he is exactly what America needs, a reminder of how not to take things for granted, how not to take the black, latino votes for granted.

The reason why things are so jagajaga in this country even tho we have a high number of religious institutions is because Nigerians are naturally gullible. Our desperation for miracles and over reliance on the supernatural be it divine or traditional is just plain laughable. Pastor that cannot pray that all the Fulani herdsmen killing Christians should perish yet can pray for thunder, LMAO!

I can understand yahoo boys and hustlers doing so outside the USA but inside the USA, you're just begging to be caught! Seems like this arrest was just coincidental, assuming it was the FBI, those boys are never coming back. Anyways crime does not pay and if you must do it, do so sensibly

|Politics / Re: Senator Shehu Sani Invites Kanye West To Visit Slave Ports In Africa by abbey621(m): 8:30pm On May 04|
Part 1: How did slavery start in Africa? How did slavery start all around the world? The beginning, one tribe capturing another tribe and selling the strong and healthy ones as slave for profit. These tradition was the same in Rome, Byzantine and all over. In Africa, we fell for the awe of the white men, the greedy kings saw nothing wrong in exchanging captured Africans for weapons and gold. These exchanges continued until the white men wised up and realized they could just take what they wanted by force/colonization. So when Kanye said it all started with mental slavery, he was so f**king right!
Part 2: Slavery in the USA lasted 400 years, not 100, not 200 but 400 freaking years, sure the slaves were forced against their will but after 200 years some bought their freedom, some became prominent members of society. They owned lands, businesses and had money. The funny thing here was that most of the ones that had freedom saw no reason to help their fellow enslaved brothers and sisters. This was the main reason why slavery went on to last 400 years. It could have lasted another 400 years, if Lincoln was not used by a higher being. If Lincoln had not freed the slaves, our black brothers and sisters would never have freed themselves.
Moral of the story: The black race is a race still trapped in mental slavery. You look at the white men genes and genes of the black men and you realize we represent the superior physical and mental traits but our potential is limited by the lack of love for our fellow brothers and sisters. This is what the white men know about us blacks and this is what makes them to continue their dominance over us.....Enlighten yourself and share the knowledge with others, don't hate Kanye, try to understand the deeper meaning!

They are posting just to vent & air their opinions.
Sounds to me like a bunch of frustrated souls, if you ain't got the cash, criticize those who have it and flaunts it freely....You're pathetic!
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 4:19pm On May 04|
What makes you think I'm pained? After all you are not criticizing my life, the subject of the criticism did not even respond or acknowledge the criticism hence the classification 'nobody'. The problem with nobodies such as yourself is that you feel entitled not knowing the somebodies of this world don't give a flip about your opinion...lol
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 3:15pm On May 04|
That your criticism falls on deaf ears, that you don't matter to them and you are better focusing your energy on something more meaningful. In short, make something of yourself!
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 1:19pm On May 04|
Did they give the attention you seek? Do they even you're alive? I guess not, just accept your NOBODY status and be cool
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 1:17pm On May 04|
You are still confusing yourself, people can react but you cannot dictate! My grievance comes from the contents of the criticism itself. I'm not saying don't criticize or offer your opinion but such opinions rarely matters hence why I termed the criticism coming from a nobody. As long as you accept that your opinion, criticism or advise on someone else's personal relationship does not matter, as long as you accept that you are a nobody in the realm of their personal affairs then criticize all you want. As far as I know neither Davido or Chioma has reacted to any negative criticism further proving my point that a NOBODY cannot and will not dictate to a SOMEBODY......Drops mic!
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 12:29am On May 04|
With that philosophy we might as well stay off social media, skype or even communicate with the world. The problem with most Nigerians who think like you is that you've been oppressed for so long, you no longer know what is right or wrong. If I buy a Porsche for my wife and she posts it on her personal Facebook page, whose father or mother would challenge me? Whose father or mother knows how I make my money? Whose grandfather or great grandmother knows my struggles? I repeat, when it comes to personal relationships everyone should mind their business and if you can't, at least MAN UP and say it to their face instead of hiding behind electronically generated words, see if your a^^ won't get KNOCKED OUT!
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 10:49pm On May 03|
When you post your photos on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter does it mean another who sees them can blindly criticize you or dictate to you how to live yourself? You people seem to think celebrities and their relations are not human being but they cry, laugh, bleed, get depressed just like you and everybody else!
|Celebrities / Re: The Chef Chi, Davido's Girlfriend Chioma: "Women Sold To Money Slave" by abbey621(m): 10:43pm On May 03|
Whether you have money or you are broke is not the point. When it comes to personal relationships those in the relationships are somebody while external influences who are not related to them are NOBODIES! In short, mind your damn business!

Learn to read instead of just blabbering. The girl is in the USA and most strip clubs have rules of no touching or sex in the club. Now if she chose to service a client that is her personal business but not a policy of the strip clubs. You'll be surprised how many female doctors, businesswomen worked part time in strip clubs to earn their way through school, once again learn to comprehend instead of blabbering!
