Is There Any European Country As Ethnically Diverse As Nigeria? by Patrioticooduan: 5:18pm On Jul 13, 2018
I did my research and I noticed Russia is the only European country with enormous diversity with 180 ethnic groups. Even at that the Russians - the largest ethnic group makeup 83 percent. Why can't we copy Europe? Why are African descendants this way? Why do we take simple things hard? In Germany, the germans makeup 92 percent of Germany's population while the remaining are minorities and immigrants( blacks, turkish e.t.c.)

That's why they don't understand why we have issues, they think we are all same people fighting one another.

All European countries with diverse ethnicity have all broken up (Yugoslavia, Great Britain, Czechoslavakia etc) but they in turn supply arms to any majority ethnic group to repress the other in Africa

That is it! Africans are not really intelligent people. European countries are not as diverse as Africa's. Why can't we copy their ways since they are the ones that created African countries. Most of European countries are split along ethnic lines. Why can't we be like that?
I tire for Africans and their brains. We are our problems

Exactly! There are just 4 ethnic groups in the country and the largest ethnic group - the Croats makeup 90 percent of the country. Tell me why such country won't progress and be peaceful?

Preach it, bro.

People suffering from colomentality will never understand. Nigeria was created by Oyibo, so it must have been ordained by god.

Even China with 1.4 billion people has 55 ethnic groups. The largest( Han Chinese) make 92 percent of the country. What about Japan, Singapore, Korea and so on? How can we see this fact and choose to look the other way? Why can't we practise this?

Why is Croatia backwards compared with US that has more than 2000 ethnic groups from all parts of the world?

US is a nation of immigrants, almost all indigenous people have been suffocated out of political relevance. You only hear about them when they are protesting the take over of their land by government and estate developers.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, a German could win a governorship election because almost all voters are immigrants.


However, we are concerned here more about peace than technological advantages,

Croatia bacward? The country has a GDP per capita of 14,000 dollars. Croatia is a country that experienced war from 1991-1995. The country is just 23. Can you compare such country to Nigeria?
Also, you can't compare America to Croatia due to many reasons. America is a country of immigrants. Ethnicity is determined by skin color and not native language or culture. This is why we hear 'African Americans', 'European Americans' and so on. In indigenous continents like Europe, Asia, and Africa, it is not like this.

The greatest lie ever told to the Nigerian people is that there is unity in diversity, a nation with over 250 ethnic groups can never speak with one voice, we can never have the same destiny.

The Europeans that sold the gospel of unity in diversity to Africans don't even practice it, they are divided along ethnic lines.

Nigeria can never move forward our philosophy of life is just too different.

Exactly! This is what Africans don't know. America is a country of immigrants. You can't compare it with Europe, Africa, and Asia. These countries are occupied by indigenous people with their own language and culture

Worry about how your new country will fare, not about Niger Delta oil. If your people haven't agreed to restructuring, you think they would agree to leave to go form their own country knowing fully well they can hardly survive without crude oil proceeds?
