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

dasparrow: So, the African woman is jealous of the black American woman you say?
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.

yemaldo: 1)there is no agreement between Yoruba and igbo before the war,they can only claimed Yoruba betrayed them if there was an agreement before the war(2)what is biafran soldiers doing in ore,isn't ore Yoruba land,do u expect Yoruba people to sit n look while biafra soldiers invade their land? So stop calling us traitors,u over stepped ur boundary by bringing the war into our territory(ore) and u got served

TYlicious: I am a yoruba girl and d bulk of my friends esp guys are Igbo. .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
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.
Since you put pictures up of african american women for some reason, I decided to put some videos/pictures of Nigerian & Ghanian women

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.

Amen, there is nothing wrong in going to the hospital and wearing a suit for a job interview but that shouldn't stop you from practicing your culture, ridiculous. In the middle east and Asia they practice their culture but still have their hospitals, factories, schools, restaurants and etc but its a issue with when africans do it. Good example

alienYOUTH: History is only relevant if it helped achieve a laudable Today.
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
|Culture / Re: Do African People Even Care About Tradition, Culture, Language And Heritage Stil by anonymous6(f): 7:11pm On Jul 10|
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.
|Culture / Re: Do African People Even Care About Tradition, Culture, Language And Heritage Stil by anonymous6(f): 4:37pm On Jul 09|
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
|Culture / Re: Should Africa Reclaim Its Stolen Treasures? - BBC by anonymous6(f): 3:52pm On Jul 09|
Good point, Some Nigerians don't know how to separate the difference between art and stone worshiping. The Italians and Greeks are Christians but still appreciate their art of Zeus, Athena, Hercules, and etc. So why can't Africans do that?
|Culture / Re: Should Africa Reclaim Its Stolen Treasures? - BBC by anonymous6(f): 3:48pm On Jul 09|
Onegai: Okay, so I'm going to have a rant here, because this is my specialty.
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.

Hi Fulaman, there is this tribe that is insulting Yoruba's left and right, even some of the things mentioned about yoruba's are lies. It has already turned to a tribal thread, I think the thread should be closed or some of the comments minimized from Tony Christopher & Ybutterfly, both are crazy and start trouble:

ok makes sense which i do side with but there is a debate by some africans if africa would be able to maintain it. In my opinion I think Africans should get these back but it is a good thing to wonder about

Ceasar1: You can't possibly steal something that's worthless and useless can you?.
thelastmediator: This shouldn't be a question to be answered by Africans, if the Europeans have any iota of integrity left in them and truly regret their past actions , they should return all the things to stole from Africa. Atleast the accountable ones. My take
I agree, the question is will Africans appreciate it and maintain it or will the sell it to the highest bidder

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?
|Culture / Re: Overcoming Stereotypes by anonymous6(f): 2:28pm On Jul 06|
myspnigeria: can it really be overcome? seriously doubt it
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?
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.
