|Culture / Re: Why Are Nigerians Hated By Others? by anonymous6(f): 3:48am On May 11|
Nigerians will get there and are getting there but certain things like corruption, consistent electricity access and boko haram need to be tackled and everything will fall In place. That's why when Buhari won I was happy cause boko haram will be dealt with differently while he's president.

of course I agree, Nigeria is not even in the top ten list for countries that scam but they are brought up the most lol
|Culture / Re: Why Are Nigerians Hated By Others? by anonymous6(f): 7:46pm On May 10|
nigerian scammers and corruption I feel are the biggest issues that cause the hate which at times is understandable but the sad part is its a small minority of the nigerian population that does scamming.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Royal Baby Girl. Kate Middleton Give Birth To A Baby Girl. by anonymous6(f): 6:37pm On May 10|
Sorry I don't agree, congratulating them for their new baby girl means nothing more then congratulating however if there are few fools out there that look up to them as Gods then thats their mental problem not mine. What you need to understand is that the Royal family of England are rich figure heads of some influence but in the end of the day they are a cultural & tourist attraction of England, who really don't work and have no power in England. Nigerians are still african, we eat our foods, have our own movie industry in different languages, we still have our music, traditional clothes, everybody from politics, medical field, business and etc are Nigerians and because of strict laws that have been placed in Nigeria when it comes to foreigners owning land & property in Nigeria, its basically impossible or difficult to get land in Nigeria whether they like it or not however some other african countries have more relaxed laws when it comes to foreigners owning land/property in their countries:
Do you think some africans nations creating strict laws were created out of no where? No they weren't they were created as a result of cases like colonization for example in their own back yard or what the Native americans, aboriginals and south africans went through, plan and simple. So I think you are over hyping and underestimating Nigerians, based on the links for the most part africans are awake but they can still congratulate a powerless figure head royal family all they want the same way they congratulate Nollywood stars Like Omotola or Genevieve when they make when progress higher in the careers or How Aliko Dangote being a Black Nigerian Billionaire makes them proud. Personally I get the issues you are trying to address but stop making up conspiracy theories and concluding Africans are naive because some nigerians on a nairaland thread about kate and williams are simply congratulating them on their new baby girl being born, ridiculous.

exactly thats what I said in the beginning, Nigeria needs its own section when it comes to attires that represent Nigeria as a country.

I always will rep Nigeria of course but I feel Ghana, Ivory coast and morocco was pretty to but I felt the picture for Nigeria was good but I have seen much better as far as I am concerned when it comes to repping Nigeria, also number 1 which was south africa mentioned the tribe that traditional attire was from, it would be nice if they did that for Nigeria, cause Nigeria can not be summed up with just one picture

I agree, excellent response
|Culture / Re: What Is Acting Or Talking "White" To You?? ;D by anonymous6(f): 12:43pm On May 08|
So true, it's the accent actually when they are speaking proper English that Nigerians use to say whether your acting like someone you are not, this excludes nigerians born overseas though
|Culture / Re: What Is Acting Or Talking "White" To You?? ;D by anonymous6(f): 12:42pm On May 08|
To Nigerians speaking proper English doesn't mean your talking white cause I never witness nigerians criticize Nigerians when they speak proper English however if they over do it like using English words that even English people rarely use as much for example it becomes obvious their acting like someone they are not. When it comes to acting white it depends on their mentality and cultural connection for example nigerians are neutral when it comes to race, they dont criticize nigerians blackness based on what music they listen to, achieving higher education, speaking proper English, and etc but how they go about it culturally.
With some african Americans though it's extreme, speaking proper English, your education, being neutrally black instead of thinking like a Afrocentric, listening to music considered non-black, and etc equates to acting white to them.

I agree, a unified currency in west Africa will be tough but a military Definately yes.
One tribal nations will be good but I don't see that happening
|Culture / Re: Why Do Our Hausa/fulani Love Their Hausa Neighbours From Chad,niger Etc So Much? by anonymous6(f): 2:44pm On May 07|
There's nothing wrong with it, they connect with people of their tribe regardless of their nationality or country of origin. This is nothing new though Hausas and fulanis have always been like this.

|Foreign Affairs / Re: Royal Baby Girl. Kate Middleton Give Birth To A Baby Girl. by anonymous6(f): 2:17pm On May 07|
You have some points and I'm not hyping will and Kate, they are like other couples out there but because of their royal connection they get special attention and treatment, which is they way the world is but Why would Jewish people celebrate hitler in the first place? It's the same way africans are not celebrating their old colonizers, which is not will and Kate, so this has nothing to do with William and Kate having their second child. There's nothing wrong in you not congratulating them but don't put down Africans doing that and equate it to black africans being down. I don't agree with past things Europeans did to africans but this has nothing to do with William and Kate new born baby. Create a new topic about what you are trying to bring up but don't do that in a thread like this one that has nothing to do with the topics your bringing up.
|Culture / Re: Top 5 Ways To Develop Africa by anonymous6(f): 2:10pm On May 07|
True countries struggling will gain but others not struggling will just be in a stable state. I don't see big african economies agreeing to one currency when they still have problems in their countries. It's not that simple, I don't see countries like South Africans or nigeria agreeing to that
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Royal Baby Girl. Kate Middleton Give Birth To A Baby Girl. by anonymous6(f): 12:34am On May 07|
lol, there is nothing wrong in congratulating William and Kate in their new born baby girl
|Culture / Re: Top 5 Ways To Develop Africa by anonymous6(f): 8:26pm On Apr 11|
Good list and I agree to a extent but number 1, I don't think so cause some african countries doing better in their currency wouldn't want a one currency with a country that isn't up there in par with them cause it will bring down their own currency. Why do you think England didn't agree to join the Euro

|Culture / Re: Countries With The Most Beautiful Girls In The World by anonymous6(f): 12:04pm On Apr 11|
Exactly, Fulani women are beautiful but the outside world doesn't see them and sadly religion is inhibiting that.
|Culture / Re: Countries With The Most Beautiful Girls In The World by anonymous6(f): 6:40pm On Apr 10|
lol this is nothing new, at this time in age people should know that one person eptiome of beauty is different from another persons epitome of beauty and if you see the authors name who wrote the article you can kind of guess the type of countries he will put down. When it comes to Africa for the most part when people from the western world think of african women they base it upon what the western media & hollywood is telling them; Alek wek is one prime example of what they show, not Genevieve Nnaji, Yvonne Nelson, Omotola Jalade, Damilola Adegbite, Liya Kebede, Agbani Darego, Tiwa savge, Naid buari and etc. I'm not saying Alek wek Is ugly but There are prettier african women with Alek Weks look for example Lupita Nyongo. In the end of the day when they keep showing images of starving people or Alek Wek as the representation from Africa, people will believe it. The authors name sounds like someone from the middle east, south east asia or possibly eastern europe; people from those areas consider darker skinned shades ugly. If you look at the Brazil representation he mentioned white brazilians not other races in Brazil for being pretty lol. So nobody should be surprised at all by this since most of the world still believes Africa is a country(the Ebola virus exposed that just recently last year even though its common knowledge).
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Join Nigerian Pan-african Group In A Solidarity March For Freedom Of West Papua! by anonymous6(f): 5:36pm On Apr 10|
I agree, if you just read up about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan-Africanism
it is understandbale why it's impossible because it is not that simple, black people worldwide are not a monolithic group or have the same mentalities of moving forward or how they want to be represented. Black diasporians have a racial mentality that ties into their culture, especially african americans but Africans it is more deeper then just race, it includes nationality and even deeper tribe. I think for economics through African countries particularily sub-saharan African Pan africanism makes sense, which has been happening but we can do more. but outside that its fairy tales

|Culture / Re: Why So Much Hate For Somalis? by anonymous6(f): 11:08pm On Mar 22|
you took the words right out of mouth. Nigerians in nairaland rarely talked about somalis until the nutty Ajuran/axum/... started talking about Black Africans in negative terms, his crazy superiority views or saying bantus 24/7, a term we are not familiar with because West Africans are not bantus in the first place. He likes to start crap with Nigerians with one useless topic thread after another in our own forums, so nobody should be surprised that Nigerians are defending themselves. The Op needs to put her energy into shutting Axum the lunatic down, that would help. As for me I don't have any issues with Africans with horn of Africa origin, I have some friends from there and they are nothing like Axum, Thank God.
