I was expecting the igbo Amaka crew to get an euphoric high, and I am not disappointed. The mere appearance of Tochukwu in the name of the girl and boom, euphoria. No further question ask as to whether she is actually igbo or not. I never knew igbos are surnamed Phillips. They did not even bother to ask further what grading system was used where she scored 6.9 GPA out of 4.

This racist or tribal profiling of foreign citizen, just because they bear a resemblance of igbo name would one day cause problems for the igbo nation. Instead of celebrating the achievements as an American feat (the girl might not even identify with igbo), they promote the girls achievement as a black igbo feat. How, do you think the Americans that gave her the opportunity to feel? I have never seen captions like whites are superior to others, because of one or a few white people's individual feat. Neither Asians, Indians and even Arabs. But some igbos have this psychological need to prove superiority based on individual efforts of others.
We are really relentless and superior in all works of life . Good or bad . That's why you sorry a-sholes hate us so much. If you feel you're wicked you'll see igbo man and you bow . You feel you've achieved greatness Intelcually then igbo man comes in, Ooh it's all over for you oily souped man, Good we are number 1 / bad we are number 1 . We are super beings bro , deal with it.

Fallacy. No evidence of superiority, except maybe with mouth. If you do a population to achievement ratio, you will find out that your tribe is no better than any Nigerian or even African tribe. I would even say that with a population of close to 50 million world wide, I would even say you guys are under achievers.

Do you have privileged information that the girls father is an igbo man called Phillips or you are just speculating to fit into your Igbo Amaka narrative?

What the hell is this one saying.?

He could be stating (indirectly) that only Whites and Asians should boast and that Nigerians should not. Stating that African Americans feel inferior to whites and consequently resent Nigerians for feeling better or equal to Whites and Asians. This resentment for Nigerians, especially Igbos, is galvanising African Americans, where even the racism perpetrated against them by Aisans and Whites never could, into ADOS movement. Trump, seizing upon this, saw a way to kill two birds with one stone. In his diabolic act of being a secret best friend of African American interest, Trump will penalise Nigerians. So in the coming months and years, Trump America will limit Nigerians in immigration, education and so on to the delight of African Americans in their guise as idiotic, Crabotic blacks. Meanwhile, Asians n hispanics, the real competition-threat to African Americans, will get a freer ride.


...or words to this effect. wink

It so shameful to see Yorubas trying to claim this Igbo girl

Her name is Tobechukwu (aka 'Tobi') Phillips. When you see name in quote it means pet name or alias

See post about her on Facebook posted by an Igbo friend of the family and only Igbos commenting on it. If she was Yoruba, we would see Yoruba comments.

Shame to see that the Igbo name Tobechukwu no longer means anything to Afonja. Spit on Oduduwa

Agony that what? An American girl called Tochukwu Phillips scored 6.9/4?
I am not understanding o.

The score 6.9 on a 4.0 scale is correct, not a mistake and not a media scam either.
The question you need to ask yourself is what is the grading system of high school (secondary School) there is Texas?
Aside the regular courses they take which amount to the 4.0 scale, they are allowed to take (optional) AP (Advanced Placement) or Honors courses which accounts for the additional GPA ..and the OP said she got all "A's" in her AP courses.

Yes, how can a sane man in his normal self still lay claims or say that the person whose name is clearly written as "TOBECHUKWU" alias TOBI say she is not igbo so the tobechukwu there no meaning? it would be very unwise and shame to the igbos to lay claims on names like "SIMISOLA" "FOLARUNSHO" "YEMI"
