Culture / Re: Why Are Igbo People Fond Of The Name:Boniface? by somegirl1: 9:09pm On Dec 05
Boniface is common among Ijaws not Igbos.
It's the name of a saint so mainly borne by Roman Catholics.

Coldfeet:
Disgusting comments from disgusted minded people angry how can two little sibling's sharing a very cute and innocent kiss! attract such reaction as read above is beyond me.

Negativity has eaten so deep into some people that they can never see or appreciate anything good.


The vast majority of Nairalanders are ignorant, unrefined, coarse and uncivilized.

Stop foaming in the mouth like an idiot.

Okorocha is a dunce. He is hated in imo state and all other SE states.

Okorocha was made governor in 2011 by Peter Obi.

Omambala is still very dominant politically as we made Okorocha what he is today via APGA.

Okorocha has never won any election until Peter Obi picked from the gutter.

Slaves! Omambala will always determine who rules Imo state.

Which one of those men went on to become governor of Imo state?

It's an engagement ring and on the 'right finger'.

Where was it suppose to be?.

Yinkwamo:

That is an engagement ring .. It is not meant to be on the third finger.. Thanks all the same

Engagement rings, like wedding rings, are worn on the left ring finger except in some European countries where they're worn on the right ring finger.
Only Nigerians seem to wear them on the middle finger.
Congrats all the same.

Politics / Re: Hahaha! See What A Colonial Oyibo Writer Said About ''Eboes'' (Igbo) by somegirl1: 11:21pm On Nov 01
OPCNAIRALAND:


The narrative is given in the Ibo native land, the only one the author is familiar with.

My response is a review of those qualities against the background where the stated Ibo qualities is genuinely available for inspection and reporting. No where is more proper than in the Americas. The indomitability of Ibo failed to show itself when faced with real life challenges that demands strength of character and physique. We see the strength of Yoruba in the Americas. Had the author visited the Yoruba native land as he did the Iboland he would not have reported Ibo in the positive.

Prime evidence is for you to go and review two great narrators of the Southern peoples land and customs - Bascom, Lander.

Joke is turned to you, shake it off!


You clearly don't know the meaning of or the correct use of the expression you borrowed from my post and keep echoing.
You keep digressing. Based on the article, your initial comment was an epic fail. You proved the exact opposite of the point you were attempting to make.
I'm sure you would agree with me, as anyone with a functional brain would, that if the article was a reading comprehension passage and you answered as you did, you'd have failed woefully.

The proof for your claim is deficient in historical records or legacy left behind in cultural synergy of the American society where attributes comprise of donations from Yoruba, Italian, Irish, English, Hispanics, Dutch and Jewish customs.

Point to me any deity, cuisine, fashion, worship or divinity assimilated from Ibo culture.

The joke is bumped back to you!

You either have comprehension or memory problems or you're simply clutching at air to save face. This was your comment that I responded to:
OPCNAIRALAND:


When a white man extols a slave it means the nigger is a good slave worthy of keeps. What makes a good slave? Obedience, simple! Yessa Massa!

In Haiti, the Dahomeans and Ashantis revolted. In Bahia the Yorubas revolted...to the point that many were repatriated out of Bahia and back home to West Africa rather than risk another uprising and victory in the hands of slaves.

It shows what Iboes have always been, and what they are till today .....a people perfectly endowed for servitude!

I simply agreed with what you said and pointed out the article described Igbos as the very opposite of the emboldened. In case you missed it, See excerpt below. Joke is still on you.

The "Eboe nigger," was from a fine open country, above the delta of the Niger,.........he was trusty, intelligent and industrious, but remarkable for an absolutely indomitable spirit, to which even the master must yield, when the Eboe was aroused, unless he should choose to shoot down the best slave on his plantation........

My point is that you were trying to justify the slap based on the fact that she was probably rude. My question is, does the fact that someone was being rude make it okay to slap someone? Do we go about slaping every person we feel was rude to us?

what he did isn't justifiable i admit, but he can't walk up to a random lady and slap her, until that lady say what actually transpired, I'll let my imagination do its work, she might have answered rudely and the intolerant man slapped her and she quickly came to tell her side of the story because she's a celebrity
My point this entire time has been - so bloody what if the emboldened happened?
How does that change the fact that what he did is inexcusable? i.e indefensible, unjustifiable, unjustified, unwarrantable, unwarranted, reprehensible, outrageous, unacceptable, unreasonable, uncalled-for,without justification.
And if you agree that his behavior was all of the above, why then are you looking for plausible reasons why he would have slapped her? The why, unless in retaliation, is irrelevant.

personally I'll ignore rude people and move on to the next polite person but that doesn't mean everyone are like that some people can't tolerate slight in discipline especially soldiers, and its just a matter of bad timing, the egoistic lady chosed the wrong time to be rude
Again, her having been rude is your presumption.
Unless she hit him, his (re)action was and is inexcusable. It's only in an insane society like Nigeria that anyone would even attempt to excuse or justify the inexcusable/ unjustifiable (in a bid to appear to be objective).
Nigeria is centuries behind the developed world, I reiterate.

See why Nigeria as a country has a long way to go. Why can't we be civil must we result to force even when the situation on ground doesn't warrant it. Some people here saying the girl deserved the slap goes to show that aside our leaders the citizens are also a problem.

The girl being rude or ignoring the soldier does it pose a threat to life and the environment? Trained soldiers react with force only when there is a threat to life and the environment. In a reasonable society the man would have introduced himself as a soldier and even presented an ID card before asking her a question.

People ranting here do you just answer strangers who come up to you asking you questions.

what do you expect after all the leader see women as only belonging to kitchen, living room and other room.

Black man, Black mind and Black attitude.

Exactly and to think that some people are excusing / supporting this madness.
We have a very long way to go.
We are centuries, not just decades, behind other civilizations.

I'm not pretending they aren't hot-headed, but lets not ignore some glaring facts, would she ignore the man if he was on uniform? She's a beauty queen and arrogance with pride comes with that most times, why can't she just politely answer the question, it wouldn't make her shorter, this whole argument is inclined on the uniform thing, imagine what she would have done if the man isn't a soldier she would have made him pay and she would skip that part whenever she's gloating on social media

You still don't get it.
NO she (probably) wouldn't have ignored him if he was in uniform.
I wouldn't ignore an army officer because police and military duties overlap in Nigeria therefore when in uniform, he/ she clearly represents the law (and because they have unbridled authority to harrass civilians).
I am however under no obligation to respond to a random individual and reserve the right to ignore whomsoever I choose to, just as others have to ignore me.
Even the nicest person has their bad days.
We can't go around being stupidly nice for fear that we may be assaulted.

in as much as I'll love to standup for a fellow lady against police brutality or army brutality i know theres two side to every stories and the girl must have done something out of arrogance, and because she thought the man was a nobody, had it been he is on uniform the girl would have obeyed and avoided what happened

So she should respond to questions from every random man because he might be an army officer?
