souldust: what long way? I want you to mention one African country and i will roll out their flaws for you.
I think you misunderstood me, every african country has flaws and Nigeria is in fact ahead of many african countries but that doesn't mean Nigeria doesn't have it's own flaws though and with those flaws Nigeria is still progressing with many successes, that something to be proud of
|Celebrities / Re: Omotola Ekeinde -I Dont Believe In Gender Equality by anonymous6(f): 10:46pm On Mar 02|
Knightly: The fact that it is called 'gender equality' doesn't mean you have to dis respect your hubby to show how equal you guys are. Omo T take note. It simply means that you share the ideology that he is not humanly superior to you, or should I say culturally. So many women believe in gender equality and they still respect their husband. I think the problem here is Omotola's comprehension of the term 'Gender Equality'.
I'm surprised a man as yourself brought this up but I am glad it was because this topic isn't as clear cut and their are some complexities to the topic itself
glitest: Every woman would say the exact same thing, if her husband has a Well paid job, is matured, is a responsible father and has a positive influence on he's children; Does respect and takes good care of he's wives emotional needs, and also does not abuse he's power as the head of the house.
so true I agree
|Celebrities / Re: Omotola Ekeinde -I Dont Believe In Gender Equality by anonymous6(f): 10:40pm On Mar 02|
Interesting, I'm a big fan of Omotola
As long as women are allowed to work and have their independence, what she said shouldn't be a problem, in traditional non-western societies it is already taught and known the roles of a woman and the roles of a man in marriage as husband and wife with respect and love for one another as a couple but in westernized societies those ideals have been blurred, which has contributed to some divorce's in the western world. People need to watch this movie cause it touches base on that:

|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Map Shows World's 'most Racist' Countries by anonymous6(f): 1:35am On Jan 31|
"Jordan and India named the world's least tolerant countries
U.S., Britain, Canada and South America are among the least racist
Survey asks people if they would want neighbours of a different race"
"Britain is one of the most racially tolerant countries on the planet, a survey claims.
The global social attitudes study claims that the most racially intolerant populations are all in the developing world, with Jordan and India in the top five.
By contrast, the study of 80 countries over three decades found Western countries were most accepting of other cultures with Britain, the U.S., Canada and Australia more tolerant than anywhere else.
The data came from the World Value Survey, which measured the social attitudes of people in different countries, as reported by the Washington Post.
The survey asked individuals what types of people they would refuse to live next to, and counted how many chose the option 'people of a different race' as a percentage for each country.
Researchers have suggested that societies where more people do not want neighbours from other races can be considered less racially tolerant
The country with the highest proportion of 'intolerant' people who wanted neighbours similar to them was Jordan, where 51.4 per cent of the population would refuse to live next to someone of a different race.
Next was India with 43.5 per cent.
Racist views are strikingly rare in the U.S., according to the survey, which claims that only 3.8 per cent of residents are reluctant to have a neighbour of another race.
Other English-speaking countries once part of the British Empire shared the same tolerant attitude - fewer than five per cent of Britons, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders showed signs of racism.
People in the UK are also tolerant of other differences such as speaking a foreign language or practising an alternative religion - for example, fewer than two per cent of Britons would object to having neighbours of a different faith to them.
Similarly, fewer than one in 20 people in most South American countries admitted harbouring prejudice against other races.
The Middle East, which is currently dealing with large numbers of low-skilled immigrants from south Asia, seems to be a hotbed of racial tension, however.
Europe is remarkably split - the west of the continent is generally more tolerant than the east, but France is a striking outlier with 22.7 per cent of the French rejecting neighbourhood diversity.
Some have pointed out problems in the survey data, claiming that because the polls span a long period of time they are an unreliable guide to current attitudes.
However, a more serious flaw could be the fact that in most Western countries racism is so taboo than many people will hide their intolerant views and lie to the questioners.
Max Fisher of the Washington Post suggested that maybe 'Americans are conditioned by their education and media to keep these sorts of racial preferences private, i.e. to lie about them on surveys, in a way that Indians might not be'."
A fascinating map of the world’s most and least racially tolerant countries
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: Blasian! by anonymous6(f): 1:19am On Jan 31|
PAPA AFRICA: never knew continental Africans did in the first place. its mostly Africans born in the western hemisphere who consider mixed people black because of the one drop rule.
Continental africans don't consider mixed race people black, they never did; it's only in the african american community and other black diasporians to a extent
|Culture / Re: Which Nigerian Tribe Owns Ogbono Soup, Okro Soup, Egusi Soup , Vegetable , White by anonymous6(f): 1:53pm On Jan 21|
Egusi soup in Nigeria is strictly Nigerian but it's origins seem to be multi-tribal then just one tribe, I feel the whole claim issue is useless.
"Igbo cuisine is the various foods of the Igbo people of southeastern Nigeria. Their cuisine includes the dishes, recipes and types of vegetables, meats and fruits that have shaped their food culture. Igbo food as in the case of all cultures has been considerably affected by their environment and history.
One of the most important vegetables in Igbo cuisine and in the Igbo culture in general is the yam tuber. This is considered the Igbo staple crop and has been dedicated deities such as Njoku Ji, the yam god. Igbo cuisine includes other vegetables such as Pumpkin seed, used to make a soup called Egusi, Bitter leaf which is made into a soup and Okra, of which its name stems from the Igbo language"
"Some common Yoruba foods are iyan (pounded yam), Amala (yam flour meal), eba, semo, fufu, Moin moin (bean cake) and akara. Soups include egusi, ewedu, okra, vegetables are also very common as part of diet. Items like rice and beans (locally called ewa). Some dishes are also prepared for festivities and ceremonies such as Jollof rice and fried rice. Other popular dishes are Ekuru, stews, corn, cassava and flours - e.g. maize, yam, plantain and bean, eggs, chicken, beef and assorted forms of meat and fish (pumo is made from cow skin). Some less well known meals and many miscellaneous staples are arrowroot gruel, sweetmeats, fritters and coconut concoctions; and some breads - yeast bread, rock buns, and palm wine bread to name a few. Yoruba cuisine is quite vast."
Hausa Food and Cuisine
"The most common food that the Hausa people prepare consists of grains such as sorghum, millet, rice, or maize, which are ground into flour for a variety of different kinds of dishes. The food is popularly known as tuwo in the Hausa language.
Usually, breakfast consists of cakes made from ground beans which are then fried—known as kosai—or wheat flour soaked for a day then fried and served with sugar—known as funkaso. Both of these cakes can be served with porridge and sugar known as koko. Lunch or dinner are usually served as heavy porridge with soup and stew known as tuwo da miyan taushe. The soup and stew are usually prepared with ground or chopped tomatoes, onions, and a local pepper sauce called daddawa. While preparing the soup, most of the times spices and other vegetables such as spinach, pumpkin, or okra are added to the soup. The stew is prepared with meat, which can include goat or cow meat but not pork due to Islamic religion restrictions. Beans, peanuts, and milk are also served as a complementary protein diet for the Hausa people."
"In Nigeria, Egusi is very popular among the Igbo ethnic group of Southeastern Nigeria, the Ibibio people and the Efik people (Calabar people) of Southern Nigeria, and the Yoruba people of the Southwest of Nigeria. Other ethnic groups in Nigeria including the Hausa of Northern Nigeria also use egusi in their local cuisine.
Yoruba people in general and quite notably the people of Ọṣun State, especially the Ijeshas love eating Iyan & Egusi (Pounded Yam & Egusi Soup)."
