All the "achievements" by our ancestors mean absolutely nothing if the modern day Africa still wallows in abject poverty, lack of electricity, diseases(ebola, which in this case the cure was created by the "whites" whome you detest so much), hunger, tribal wars and every anti-development situation you can think of.

And who do you think is The cause of all this backwards? Have you not heard of colonialism or do you think our ancestors suddenly forgot how to govern a country and regressed into what it is today? Use your brain.

And you really can't compare that building in the pic with jaja's crib man. What's wrong with you? The Arabs you talk about see the negro as a totally inferior race. Why would you even bother comparing yourself to them?

That building in the pic is one example of widespread traditional architecture used all over England and Europe. And you still didn't negate my point about the Arab architecture.

Yes, white ladies walk around halfnude but even you, no matter how deluded you are, can't ignore how Africans condemn such actions NOW. Right now in Africa, a lady can't get molested and raped in broad daylight for putting on a see through dress. Not in all cases but it has happened. Africans criticize nudity even more than the whites.

You only have your gullible forefathers to blame.

Take your head out of the butt of THEN and smell the fart of NOW. Africa is a shadow of its past glory and its very annoying to have to waste my precious battery life, since there is no fuel to power my gen, to chat with a low self-esteemed afro american(or whatever you like to be called these days) over what is going on PRESENTLY in Africa as opposed to what you've read in your history books.
This argument has been going on for so long, it seems you have forgotten the original point. Pre-colonial Africa was advanced back then. If our forefathers were able to achieve what they could, what's stopping us from doing the same level? If they could run stable governments with a entails for their people and live under accountability, what stopping us?
Why are the likes of you condemning you ancestors for "semi-primitiveness" and praising a foreign people that are rife with cultural corruption of their own thanks to centuries of European born superstition and backwardness? Stop with the inferiority complex and learn to learn from people who have been through similar trials you are currently in.

Some people may not know it but King Jaja of Opobo was an Igbo slave from Orlu in present day Imo state who was sold into slavery. I read somewhere that they still speak some form of Igbo in Opobo.
very true, my god father is from nkoro and they speak igbo but not in its raw form.
