She's wrong in this scenario.She said "A white man should decide what's racist or not".Wrong, the last time I checked racism is not bespoke to be experienced by black people only.
As a world renowned Novelsit that She is, I expected her to articulate her point without been confrontational.Throughout the US election period, we've seen tv political commentators supporting Clinton and Trump sit side by side and it's not been confrontational and I've not seen them directly attack each other.

Trump just pulled a Buhari 'change' on Americans, saying what he wanted them to hear.

I enjoyed how she tackled that oyibo man sha, you could see from her features that she wasn't buying his crappy explanation.

I don't think Trump is racist though, he just says it as it is,he didn't exactly lie, did he? He says what most people are too polite to say and maybe that's not such a bad thing . We need to hear the truth sometimes but I doubt he can act on it.

To me Trump is an arrogant spoiled obnoxious man who says and does what he feels like and seems to get away with it.
Chimamanda sef messed up when she endorsed Buhari that time, I still haven't forgiven her for that one.

Donald trump is a racists and so those who voted for him knew he was a racists and they still decided to vote for him. any one who doesn't like it should leave American asap they are not forcing any one to stay in their country.
Empty head, you do realise that nearly half the US population is non-white? Where should they go? Walking dunce with no brain.

Why should they?

Their ancestors did everything they could to build a solid foundation for whatever privileges they enjoy today whereas our leaders steal everything we have and put them in European, Chinese or American banks and the funds are used to make those countries better for "whites".

At the end of the day, whites have perfected the strategy of exploiting the blacks and other minorities to the extent that these minorities work hard to benefit the whites and do everything they can to ensure than their own races remain in poverty and mental slavery.

Even Chimamanda will rather live in the US than here in Nigeria and most likely contributes more to the development of the US than Nigeria's.

undecided

Their ancestors built that solid foundation on occupying, conquering and pilfering the resources and manpower of other civilisations. That is nothing to applaud.

Get your shit_ together NL, already saw the video like 69 years ago...Chimanda is great at twisting prompts with unnecessary metaphors...Saying Racist Politically incorrect Statements doesn't necessarily make you a bad president in the making.



Although Trump really is suspect.

Then So it's okay to be racist then? What about tribalist? Can Buhari also take some pages from Trump and start degrading other tribes? is that OK by you too?

Did anyone notice her body language and deceptive smiles? She made valid points tho.

But saying a white man doesnt get to define what's racist doesn't seem fair.
I think she nailed it. A white man can never understand what it's like to be racially abused.

Our ancestors didn't build any foundation for us and instead exploit our resources to develop other civilizations.

What the whites did might be nothing to applaud but you have to remember that they bought some of the slaves from black kings. We sold ourselves out.

We are the victims are they are the victors. The end justifies the means

I honestly wish some of you Nigerians who have ZERO experience of the black experience in the US and other western nations, would just shut the hell up and stop stinking up the web with your ignorance.

I need some help here: what exactly is racism? Is it something you say or do? And how precisely is Trump racist? Mind you, I'm not saying he is or isn't. I just need some schooling on how he is racist - because I know that blacks have said worse things about one another than he did. Yet, blacks can't be racist, can they? If Obama weren't black, I'm sure we'd call him racist for standing by and watching police brutality against blacks mount. But hey, he's black and therefore not capable of racism. What do I know?

The American press greatly misled us in the run up to the elections by selling us untruths concerning the standing of the candidates. We must be careful to ensure that they don't continue to mislead us, post election.

Your reading and interpretation of history and its supposed consequences is equal to that of a 4 year old child. Tell me something. Name me one book on African history you've ever read. Just one.

Don't bother. I know the answer. Zero. Expert on "our ancestors".

I don't believe in racism, we are all human beings. Racism is just people hating on each other regardless of colour. What will you say about our different tribes in Nigeria? Nigerians are more racists against themselves than any other, and we still the black race. Racism is overrated.

If I sell you chocks gotten from a lecturers office does that exempt you from responsibility? No!

And I think it's disingenous to stop just at the part where we sold slaves to them. You skipped the part where they camped ships at the shore of a lot of riverine communities and forced them to give up the sovereignty of their land and the ownership of the resources therein.

You skipped the part where they themselves organised raiding parties to gather slaves.

You skipped the part where they forcibly fused different tribes under a single geographical entity just because they were too lazy to rule us separately and they were too stingy to disburse funds to rule us effectively separate. And years after they have left we are still feeling the tremors of this forced union.

So I think you do yourself and your generations to come a disservice for this dishonest defense of a reply you wrote here.

Sorry but not sorry. I'd rather buy myself that dream car and take myself on that dream date to Rome. And you gain nothing from dissing somebody who doesn't know you exist on a website she doesn't even visit. You just sound petty and little.

See ehn, if it was our forefathers who did the same to make us developed then you wouldn't be arguing.

They did what they had to do to get where they are.

Even if what they did was vile and savage, they got what they wanted.

It is sad we are the victims though
