anti-retro is affordable. You can't even afford to feed yourselves.
proof is required for the bolded.

This is where my interest in this thread officially ends.
We are clearly not on the same intellectual plane. (I being on a higher one, of course).
Summary of what has been established so far:
Christianity wasn't forced on Nigerians.
islam wasn't your original religion and you don't know a thing about your religion prior to islam.
Bye (for now)

I don't see anywhere in the passage that says Christianity was forced on Nigerians as you previously stated. If it wasn't "good for us", we'd have stopped it or it wouldn't have spread as it has, seeing as it is relatively new to us as you correctly pointed out.
What was your original religion and why don't you practice it anymore?
You should know since you keep bragging about having history which you claim others lack.
Concern your self with things that affect you. If the Christianity of Nigerians was responsible for the disastrous state of your country or your buck teeth or receding hairline, then it would be your concern.
Regarding beauty which you seem obsessed with, I am yet to see a somalian whose beauty has wowed me.
While your defeated, pathetic parents busy themselves teaching you of baseless pride while on welfare and benefits all around the world,ours work hard to leave us an inheritance and set us up for success.
This phrase sums you up Ayanle:
"Empty vessels make the loudest noise".

somalia9: i dont know what our original religion was because it was over 1400 years ago. no one group of people who had a religion that long ago know what their religion was. but obviously it was not as good as ISLAM.
You're asking this question on the wrong forum, go to a "black" American one as Christianity was never forced on Africans at least not Nigerians. Get your facts right.
Many accepted it as a way out of certain cultural practices that put them at a disadvantage e.g slavery (within kingdoms) and the outcaste system which was common among the Igbos.
Also many accepted Christianity as it came hand in hand with education which we have always been keen on (I don't expect your likes to understand how that a person can be passionate about education).
Who made you one to decide what is good for others? Unless you practice your original religion, you are in no position to question the beliefs of others.
Many think islam is a pointless religion formed by a misguided storyteller called mohammed, who chose portions of the bible to concoct a "guide" which made whatever he chose to do at the time right.
You shouldn't concern yourself with other people's beliefs.
|Religion / Re: Why Are Blacks Christians? by some-girl: 4:40am On Mar 31|
What was your original religion and who told you Christians don't see Christianity as "fit for them"?
|Romance / Re: What Are The Responsibilities Of A Boyfriend Or Fiance? by some-girl: 7:43pm On Mar 30|
....For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also....
This lady in question must have exhibited good enough qualities for the man to want to marry her.
I can understand men being "careful" with money when it comes to their girlfriends but with their fiancees/ wives, unacceptable.
Gift giving isn't a duty but a gesture of affection or appreciation. Once it is seen as a duty or in exchange for something, it removes the essence of it.
A gift doesn't have to be expensive and gift giving shouldn't be exclusively for men however (I am of the opinion that) a man should give, not necessarily more often, but bigger.
If a man can conveniently afford expensive things, his fiancee/ wife/ serious girlfriend should have them.
If he isn't well off, he should do his best within reason.
|Religion / Re: Why Are Blacks Christians? by some-girl: 5:39pm On Mar 30|
The question wasn't whether islam was forced on you or not but why you are muslim when islam is obviously not your original belief/ religion.
I'd like to know.
|Religion / Re: Why Are Blacks Christians? by some-girl: 11:34pm On Mar 29|
somalians are muslim and they are black.

Baby mama: Is he Ijebu or Egba?
They claim he's Igbo from Enugu. Is "Omada" an Igbo name. Never heard such a Igbo name.

Bad company corrupts good manners.
This man has clearly spent too much time around those known for this sort of crime. You know yourselves.

This grandpa is 23?
This stripping and beating punishment is too harsh for petty thieving. Beating alone would do.
Should be reserved for armed robbers, murderers, rapists and ritualists.

MOBBDEEP: Bros, Well done plus I hail oooo!
A human being is bush meat? Someone's child, carried for 9 months in the womb? Just because she's a "local/community lady"?
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Ibo Versus Igbo Imbroglio by some-girl: 6:50pm On Mar 22|
Of course. They're human, aren't they?
However due to cultural differences, my preference would be a man from the South East, South South, Eastern Middle Belt areas, if he must be Nigerian.
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Ibo Versus Igbo Imbroglio by some-girl: 3:33am On Mar 21|
We write down many things on Nairaland we don't mean or that don't apply in real life.
That I favour the appearance of the aforementioned people wouldn't stop me from finding a man from a different region, race etc attractive.
If I see a thread declaring Yoruba women to be the most beautiful in the world, I wouldn't comment. However, if I see one or comparing Yoruba women to Igbo women specifically, I just might comment.
Same as I would do if non-Nigerians were compared to Nigerians.
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Ibo Versus Igbo Imbroglio by some-girl: 2:57am On Mar 21|
I'm either playing around (often the case) or stating what I think. When it comes to beauty, I would naturally favour people from my ethnic group and surrounding ethnic groups. It is totally understandable that you would too.
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: Why Do Igbo Women Have Beards? by some-girl: 2:52am On Mar 21|
being hairy or not has something to do with frequency of visits to barber shop? interesting.
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Ibo Versus Igbo Imbroglio by some-girl: 12:07am On Mar 20|
Stalking me dear?
I'm not bigoted at all. I mess around mostly and just reply in threads.
I'd never create a thread putting down another ethnic group (like you have). Makes no sense.
|Ethnic, Racial, Or Sectarian Politics / Re: The Ibo Versus Igbo Imbroglio by some-girl: 11:39pm On Mar 19|
It's not derogatory, just incorrect.
Like leaving out a letter when spelling a name.

shymexx: ^^^Stop telling porkies, there's no way you can tell the difference between Pakis, Indians, and Bangladeshi people....
That you can't see that Pakis are generally lighter, taller and have sharp/ slender features in comparison doesn't mean others can't.
If you've been around them long enough and are keen-eyed you'd know.

ibibiogrl: Itai state is old news, actualy 2 state was suppose to be created from Cross River state not one. Also it's not the same as ndi Igbo war, because you guys just have dialectical differences, but you pratice the same traditions.
Did someone correct this impression?
There are subtle to considerable differences across Igbo sub groups. These differences may be seen in attire, dance, musical instruments, food, salutation, marriage rites, titles etc. Nd'Igbo were originally more heterogeneous than many realise.
In response to the topic, I can often tell Ibibio/ Annang/Efik from Igbo people.
There are sometimes other slight physical differences apart from height. Ones the untrained eye may not notice, very much like the slight physical differences among Pakistani, Indian and Bangladeshi people.

If you think your votes in 2011 kept him in office and would or wouldn't in 2015, think again.

And why is part of the icing missing?
