GodMode:

Read about the civil war so that u'll have better understanding and stop listening to what people tell u.

The North(Hausas) started the war against the South(ibos). It was the ibos that decided to go to ondo and attack the west(Yorubas) but the West retaliated and the South(ibos) couldn't go past Ondo.

There was a Yoruba man(a traitor) named Victor Banjo helping the ibos. He led the attack on the Yorubas.

Stop leaving senseless comments when u know nothing about the civil war.

The Hausas should apologise to the Ibos.

Amen

PedroJP:


No, we need no apology from the Hausas. They were and are a known enemy but a friend who betrayed needs to tender that apology showing his acknowledgement of his mistake

There was no previous agreement before the war between yoruba's and igbo's, so theres is no apology needed. If some igbo's feel strongly about it, they need to demand a apology from the Hausa's; regardless if they are your enemy or not. Yoruba's never started or wanted the war in first place as far as I am concerned
Culture / Re: Are African Women Jealous Of African American Women's "Natural" Lighter Skin? by anonymous6(f): 7:55pm On Jul 14
dasparrow: So, the African woman is jealous of the black American woman you say?

How many African women have you met in your entire life? How did you come to the conclusion that African women are jealous of you? Do you know how many African women they are worldwide? Have you met each and every one of them? What do you have precisely that is so special that will prompt an African woman to be jealous of you? What is so special about light skin? do light skinned Negros not succumb to sickness and death like every other mere mortal on earth? Many black Americans even with all the racial mixing with Native Americans, Caucasians, Asians and what have you still look like they just got off the slave boat last night. So what is there for the African woman to be envious of? Being delusional much?

Your black American men are busy running after white, Latino and Asian women and wife them up while you black American women remain single and baby mommas for life. The African woman is being made a wife by her African prince and raising a family while black women like you stay bitter in the USA. Stop taking too much hateraid and stop imagining things because the African woman is too busy being a wife, a mother, a business woman and a career professional to worry about what you bitter conceited black American women think about her.

So, start living and stop hating! Peace, out!

Beautiful pictures

Nigerians have enough issues to deal with then these nonsensical threads being brought to the culture section. When I heard this light skinned-bleaching stuff I was like what the hell, Bleaching is going on all over the world, in Asia, south america, Caribbean, Africa and even in America, so whats the point. The truth is many black americans like these topics 24/7 and maybe the OP felt we have that mentality to.

TYlicious: I am a yoruba girl and d bulk of my friends esp guys are Igbo. shocked .I lyk d igbo language (can't speak it doe) I can deal with that,a lot of us keep friends frm d oda tribe depending on which we belong but truth be told our parents have sown d seed of discord lyk sum1 rightly said. U can imagine an elderly family member asking why I keep Igbo friends
Dat aside I still don't understand why some pple are clamouring for apology by yoruba tribe.Awolowo is dead so is Ojukwu,who will spearhead the 'Apology commitee' and deliver the apology address? who will welcome the apology commitee and accept it on behalf of d Igbos? What we can do is 4give and 4get as individuals.
The situation on ground is way serious than the superiority clash btw Igbos and Yorubas so we can all take a chill pill and just show luv 'stead of harmful exchange of words cos Nigeria needs us more dan ever.

I'm a yoruba female to and Sorry to say this but this igbo vs. yoruba fiasco is getting pathetic but I need to say something from what you mentioned, the yoruba's don't need to say sorry to anybody. When the war was going on each tribe had their agenda. Ojukwu was representing his tribe and knew the benefits and disadvantages with his decision and Awolowo was defending his tribe and knew the benefits and disadvantages for his agenda. If some igbo's want a apology they need to get it from the Hausa's cause the way I see it, it was a Hausa vs. Igbo War and others tribes got dragged into it, and got forced to defend themselves. To me this yoruba vs. igbo debate will take awhile to resolve but people need to stop saying that Yoruba's need to apologize to igbo's. They need to face that issue with the hausa's for that or ask all tribes of Nigeria to apologize to igbo's.

African women are not jealous and don't have issues with African american women. In Nigeria, Nigerian women are not even thinking of african women as much to think in that level, so where does this light skinned issue come up. I think you are just trying to start a a senseless fight on a nigerian forum for the sake of it.

Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Sectary Of Muslim Population Around The World by anonymous6(f): 2:55am On Jul 11
MrT2011: The Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States — Muslim 0.6%

Australia — Muslim 1.5%

Canada — Muslim 1.9%

China — Muslim 1.8%

Italy — Muslim 1.5%

Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and
among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%

Germany — Muslim 3.7%

United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

Spain — Muslim 4%

Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to
their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the
introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby
securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.

They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.

This is occurring in:

France — Muslim 8%

Philippines — Muslim 5%

Sweden — Muslim 5%

Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow
them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic
Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the
entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase
lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris ,
we are already seeing car-burnings.

Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and
threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and
films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim
sections, in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%

India — Muslim 13.4%

Israel — Muslim 16%

Kenya — Muslim 10%

Russia — Muslim 15%


After reaching 20% , nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% , nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%

Chad — Muslim 53.1%

Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

Nigeria - Muslim 53%

From 60% , nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers
of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic
ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya,
the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%

Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

Sudan — Muslim 70%*

After 80% , expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

Egypt — Muslim 90%

Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%

Iraq — Muslim 97%

Jordan — Muslim 92%

Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

Pakistan — Muslim 97%

Palestine — Muslim 99%

Syria — Muslim 90%

Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

Somalia — Muslim 100%

Yemen — Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

Eg is the Current situation in Iraq and Syria.

Garvey1: That is tribalism...A Zula and Yoruba have more in common than our differences.Africans have to suppress tribalism because we are all one Tribe...the African Tribe...It is the collective unity of the whites that make them strong...and also remember it was the same white man that victimize both Zulu and Yoruba...when he views black people he see us through one prism...he sees a nigger for him to rob and exploit....we therefore must work towards a greater unity in Nigeria and wherever we find African people worldwide

Actually that is not tribalism it is just a fact that Yoruba are way different from Zulu and vice versa, to downplay the uniqueness & culture of each tribe in Africa because majority of Africans are Black is not wise. What africans need to do is respect each other tribally and religion wise, and progress economically not turn each country into states. Ghana is doing just fine when it comes to respecting each other tribally and southern Nigeria in Nigeria get along with each other, nobody fights each other over religion or tribe like what is going in Northern Nigeria

In the end of the day there will never be a United States of Africa, the same way there will never be a United States of Asia and etc.

Your philosophy is more afrocentric which will always be foreign to Africans, I feel that concept is good for african americans and Caribbeans to a extent cause their culture is based on their race.

It is also relevant when it teaches people of their identity as a person culturally and ethnically historically and etc. Being born and raised in America from Nigerian parents made me appreciate that, and will always be part of my identity.

History has taught Nigeria that they don't want war again but if their history is not taught, they are risking a possibility of a repeated history of backwardness

DarryOsh:
I get you. I was actually appalled when last year, on a thread on nairaland, I learned that the government had decided to scrap history as a subject in schools. Before then I always felt history was not prominent enough in our curriculum. I learned the real stuff of the Nigerian civil war from Chimamanda ' s half of a yellow sun. Before then my erroneous belief about d war was as follows:
'the easterners decided to secede because oil was discovered in their region. They were greedy. There was a war, a few died. '
I was so ignorant, I was embarrassed to learn about my ignorance . That was when I started to wonder why all the schools I attended never offered history. I think history should b Compulsory in primary and secondary schools.
Recently I read about the Oyo empire when someone created an elaborate thread about it. It was a shock to learn that I come from such a great place with great history. Of course I knew a lot about the British, Greek, Egyptian and Roman empires but very little about my own Oyo. It is such a shame . We need to teach history as a compulsory subject.
We need to the proactive steps. Our museums are practically dead.
And another problem seems to be that we hardly 'export' our art to d world. If not for movies who would know that in India it is women who pay dowry. But I think it's easier for them sha because they retained their language as lingua franca unlike us.

I didn't even know this but I am not surprised cause some Nigerians don't appreciate their history. It makes sense now why some Nigerians are not appreciating their arts & sculptures, they will just know their history from their elders I guess. However even with history being taught it did not change most Nigerians behaviors, it just slightly caution them. I guess history will be a extra-curricular class now in Nigeria(cause I have heard from Nigerians that most schools offer it on the side but they are not part of the main curriculum). Lastly it could be that the Nigerian government doesn't want to take responsibility for their wrong doings in the past and each tribe in Nigeria has a different historical account to tell that maybe they think it isn't worth it, which is sad.

I do and majority of Africans I have bumped into, particularly the Nigerians do. Nigerians have pride in the culture whether they are Igbo, Yoruba or Hausa and etc.

If you go to the western world like America or the UK many Africans have cultural festivals and clubs. Their are Igbo, edo and Yoruba cultural associations in many states in America however I do feel their are some lost Africans and there are some Africans that do take it for granted and don't appreciate as much as they should

Onegai: Okay, so I'm going to have a rant here, because this is my specialty.
No, they shouldn't return it. We don't deserve them.
Almost all the families I know with artefacts keep them under lock and key (mine included). Because Nigerians (Africans and Blacks too) are very backwards, sorry to say this.
Monotheistic Abrahamic religions came to China, Japan, Pacific Islands and Celts and Native American Indians and so much more. None of them went crazy, carried it on their heads and despoiled the works of their ancestors. Like Africans did.
As someone who buys artefacts (for preservation) and works to being a Historical art curator one day, I am ashamed of the Nigerian Gallery of Art and the National Museum. Whom are empty and filled with people who can't tell you an Onabolu from an Dale (both Nigerian). Even the private collectors are accused of being fetish-worshippers for trying to save our history.
If we return them, people will clamour for them to be destroyed because "my pastor said it is stopping my destiny from manifesting" or will sell them off for an ipad or Nokia Lumia. We Nigerians are not even INTERESTED in visiting them (you will see more whites asking me questions about Ife, Bini and Igbo-Ukwu than a Nigerian). So let people who can value this history (which btw is a great tourist attraction and would aid our broken economy) keep them.
And if you are interested in seeing a huge collection of them, please contact me. Or better yet, contact OYASAF.

I'm glad you brought this up, the issue is will Nigerians maintain it, and sadly I don't see many Nigerians will maintain it and appreciate it. Until Nigerians take it seriously then maybe people can sleep at night that the art won't be destroyed or sold within months of it being reclaimed From the UK or France and etc.

Our ability or inability to maintain it shouldn't be an excuse. If the artefacts were not preserved by our fore fathers, there wouldn't be anything for them to steal in the first place. They should return the stuffs, then if our government decides to monetise some of them after consulting the appropriate sources, so be it. In that case, it will be clear to the world that they acquire it through the right medium.

Ethiopia successfully fought for the return of one of its national religious treasure, the Axum Obelisk.

The 1,700-year old stone obelisk looted by Italy nearly 70 years ago arrived in Addis Ababa last month to a rapturous welcome.

Thousands of people lined the streets to see what they consider an important symbol of their identity restored to them.

Two years ago a German museum handed back to Zimbabwe a soapstone carved bird after 100 years.

The Zimbabwe bird is an emblem of the country, appearing on the national flag and currency.

The Ethiopian Obelisk and the Zimbabwe bird are just two of the many traditional and sacred objects that vanished from Africa and ended up in museums, learning institutions or private homes abroad during the colonial era.

The BBC's Africa Live asks: How important are historic artefacts to your sense of identity?

What should your government do to reclaim your country's lost treasures?

Or should we stop dwelling on the past and concentrate on sorting out the problems of the present?

No, Racial stereotypeing will be on earth till the end of time as long as we are human. Stereotyping has existed for 1,000s of years way back into the ancient times and further then that. it's in human nature, all we can do is try to be less stereotypical as we can but sometimes in some cases there is some truth in some stereotypes so it makes stereotypes more harder to get rid of. My take is regardless of how you feel about a person or their racial community, keep it to yourself and respect that person and keep on moving on.

Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: Why We Are All Involved by anonymous6(f): 3:41pm On Jul 04
elnath: Many Nigerians, many blacks across the world turn a blind eye to what is happening in North-Eastern Nigeria. To these people it is just another news item, far removed from them. It doesn't affect me. So, why bother?
But the truth is that we are all involved. The humanitarian crisis that these prolonged terrorist attacks has wrought on the people of North-Eastern Nigeria is of gargantuan dimension. And it is getting uglier by the day as more houses are burnt and more children are left homeless and parent-less. It is a very pathetic sight seeing children with out parents walking on the dangerous streets of some remote Borno State villages.
We are involved. Every Nigerian, every Black is involved. Nigeria is the spiritual home of all Blacks in the world and any man or woman with black skin should connect to what is happening there.
The white imperialist leaders are forever happy seeing Africa in crises ranging from famine to ethnic and religious wars to epidemics. That is their selfish vision for Africa. So, they could use the guise of helping her people to exploit the land and its abundant wealth of resources. They supply weapons to warring factions so that a sustained period of peace would not come. They know that a peaceful Africa would be a thinking Africa. And a thinking Africa would become an all-conquering lion, ferocious in development, technological advancement and unprecedented achievements in all fields of human endeavor.
It is time for us to get out of our doldrums and realize that we Africans have a common history. A history of abuse. A history of subjugation. A history of oppression and exploitation. We must realize that without our seeing through the machinations of the selfish, devilish, exploitative white race, we are doomed to always play second or even third fiddle in a race we instituted long long ago-civilization. Let the black race arise for each other. Let us speak out against injustice and oppression and wickedness everywhere. The killings in North-Eastern Nigeria has to stop. It is on us to make that happen. #StopTheInsurgentsInNorthEasternNigeriaToday

In the end of the day the issue in North-east Nigeria doesn't affect or concern Blacks across the world especially Black diaspsorians(america, caribbeans and etc) cause it is not their community or social or political issue. Their are issues affecting african americans and it doesn't concern Black africans or Nigerians cause it doesn't affect them and they are not part of that social politics. Even in Africa it self, their are countries that have been having issues for decades but other African countries never get involved cause they are not part of the situation or part of that society(have you've seen Ghana try to get involved in the Hutu & Tutsi situation in Rwanda years ago). That doesn't mean they shouldn't care though, many around the world, white, black, arab and etc have spoken against what is going on in northeast Nigeria but that is as far as they can go. The issue in North-East Nigeria is more complex and has been fueled by northern leaders and religion there for awhile, they are the ones that can really quench this. Southern Nigeria is not perfect but you don't here this type of crap with violence or stone age nonsence that boko Haram is doing, and do you know why? cause Southern Nigerians are more progressive and tolerant of others, they don't impose on others. In southern Nigeria their are people of different tribes and religions but all get along and are progressive with education, and etc but in Northern Nigeria they are still living in the stone age. So this is a issue that Northern nigeria should fix.
