Lionessza6:I'm beginning to wonder if smart Nigerians even exist when we keep encountering people who think and say the same things. It's as if there's no independent thought in Nigeria it's very very strange.
So that dumb Andrew444 got rejected you say?

Oh I see.. that's not alot at all compared to Nigeria. It's easier to make your language official.
So black South Africans speak Afrikaans too? Do the whites also speak black SouthAfrican languages too?
What are the race relations like?

Maybe !. There were a lot of disagreements initially because other smaller groups who wanted their languages recognised were forced under the official 9. I know in my home province there are still cries about it , but no one really cares , we are all xhosa now to everyone else . How many tribes do you have in Nigeria ?.
Most Coloureds speak Afrikaans as their first language. There are not many young black people that are fluent in Afrikaans but we use a lot of words from the language in our daily communication (mostly slang). There are a lot of white people ( mostly farmers ) who speak African languages, there are also a lot that don't.
Race relations are rocky at the moment ( it was election time) , this is usually when a lot of hate becomes visible. Normally , people are generally " friendly " . Basically those who want to socialise with each other do so , and those who prefer to hang or live among their own are also free to do so. But the last part ( living with your own) is getting more difficult as more and more South Africans join the middle and rich classes ( particularly for whites).
Do you live in Nigeria ?
|Re: Deport Nigerians - South African Twitter Users Call For Mass Deportation by 1Sharon(f): 9:43pm On Jun 19|
Lol..there are over 200 ! But with 3 large popular tribes, so that could never work out. There would be a war, it has happened before.
Are coloureds the mixed race ppl?
That makes sense cos when I hear black SAn songs I feel like it does sound a bit dutch.
Do the khoisan ppl still exist?
No I live in the UK.
|Re: Deport Nigerians - South African Twitter Users Call For Mass Deportation by IronGalaxy: 11:35pm On Jun 19|
1Sharon:yes, some black South Africans do speak Afrikaans as a second language to English, especially in places like Kimberly in the Northern Cape, De Ar and so forth, some attend Afrikaans schools , some work with Afrikaners, we all understand to an extent, I don't really care about
the language so I'm not that fluent in it although I do understand the basics. it's a language similar to Dutch or Flemish of Belgium but it's spoken more by a creole people called "coloureds" , often regarded as the most ethnically diverse group in the world.
Race relations, I do know how to put it. People largely get along although there are areas where racial incidents tend to occur the most similar to the Midwest in the US where you find rednecks, we have people similar to rednecks here in South Africa, old Afrikaners who are still trapped in Apartheid mentality. Other areas in SA are quite cosmopolitan where everyone gets along and is tolerant then you have semi rural paces where it's quite backwards with regards to race relations
Most white South Africans do not speak African languages unfortunately, some do though and those that mostly do are not in the urban setting, don't know how to put it. South Africa is a strange country for instance a lot of Indians in KwaZulu-Natal province speak impressive Zulu complete with the accent and ol there's also a lot of intermarriage with Zulu people especially in the Stranger area while Portuguese descendants mostly around the East Rand also do speak a lot of African languages

LOL, you could start with pidgin , Afrikaans also started off as such . Just eliminate the English words though lol. I understand this can't be easy in many African countries, I would say we were mostly lucky because at the time these languages were made official we all had one enemy and I can imagine that people had no energy for any more fights, especially fighting ourselves . There are calls to combine all the languages and come up with one , although I don't see that hapenning anytime soon , I think it would be a great development .
Yes , coloureds are the mixed race people.
LOL, really?. I don't know of any black artist who sings in Afrikaans, perhaps you listened to our national anthem? .
They do , but there are few of them in south Africa. We have pockets of their communities here in my home province and the Northern cape ( not the impostors ).
Do you have the accent? . How are race relations over there ?. Not only between blacks and whites, but also Asians ?. I've been seeing a lot of news about Asian miscreants over there , but don't know what to make of it (I'm always reluctant to believe most things from your BBC ). Were you born there ?. How are relations between you guys and the Carribeans in particular the Jamaicans ?.
|Re: Deport Nigerians - South African Twitter Users Call For Mass Deportation by 1Sharon(f): 5:56pm On Jun 20|
Hmm..ok that's an idea but pidgin has so many English words it's going to be hard.
Lol for real I feel like your languages do sound a bit dutch has anyone mentioned that before?
Do the khoisan ppl relate with everyone else or do they isolate themselves?
Yes I do have the accent but when I'm with fellow Nigerians I soften it a bit. Even on this forum I type in a very Nigerian way but not with other ppl. And yes I was born here but have lived in naija for a bit.
I would say race relations are just ok. There is a little bit of racism here and there. I'm not sure if you heard about a white comedian joking about the new royal baby being a monkey.
Asian miscreants? Lol..are you talking about the islamization of Europe/ the west? The so called asylum seekers that come to Europe from Muslim countries and start reeking havoc on the locals and turn the neighbourhoods into mini Saudi Arabia.
They want women to dress modest and they want sharia law and anybody who speaks out on this is called islamophobic and racist.
I feel like blacks aren't the problem of whites anymore they have a new problem. I think the whites actually prefer blacks now because unlike the Asians we assimilate more into western society and it's rare to meet a black person that doesn't understand English in the UK.
Quite a number of Muslim Asians don't understand English like blacks and they don't assimilate like blacks cos they don't like western society.
Not understanding the language of your host country shows disrespect and shows you don't care especially if you've been in the UK for decades. It's also likely the person also doesn't have a job and is living off someone else. That's also something the whites are frustrated with about the Muslim Asians.
Between carribeans? lol..our relationship has definately improved especially among we young ppl because we are more open minded and obsessed with social justice unlike our parents/ grandparents.
When afrobeats became more mainstream that helped us showcase and be proud of our identity, cos ppl from other cultures started knowing more about African music and wearing African prints became more fashionable. So the Jamaicans liked it too.
because back in the day I would say about in the 80s to the noughties being african was looked down upon. So Africans would lie about their nationality and claim Jamaican. The Carribeans called us ugly and dirty with hard hair. That doesn't happen now, Africa has been on the map.
Africans in return did also look down on Jamaicans cos they are slave descendants. They say Jamaicans have no language and culture with baby mamas eveywhere lol this is only popular with the older generation of Africans. Older ppl in general can be narrow minded.
Do you live in SA?
Here's a Jamaican-african joke:

geloorrrrdd:Spoken like a true Nigerian uncle Tom. The self hate of you guys is on another level, you're truly a lost cause. Tell me what's wrong with typing in our native languages? Isn't what " native" means .What do the Germans type with? The Chinese? Your constant need for white validation exposes you of your inferiority complex and no Nigerian makes a point without waxing lyrical about " white" people. Why are you such ass kissers? Sure your beloved whites remained longer than your hot cave but what's that got do with the fact our elderly and disabled get monthly grants and you don't? That every road in townships is tarred and yours aren't? That our far flung villages have electricity and your major cities are struggling? That are budget for education alone shit.s on your whole national budget? It's purely envy. Botswana is far ahead you with no significant white population btw.
You all reason the same , lazy this, whites this, HIV that" etc. you people are dumb as ufck, absolutely no independent thinking, monkey hears, monkey says" even those who've never been to or seen a South African have a lot of nonsense to spew. your HIV stats make for scary reading as well with your country having the title of having most babies born with HIV in the world and yet here you are! You dumbufcks are the only people are still hear ridiculing people living with HIV as if the disease doesn't ravage your own people proving how backward you lots still are. They'll laugh at you I'm saner countries.
How is Nigeria gonna get back soon since that requires I white intervention? Or that applies only to South Africans?
|Re: Deport Nigerians - South African Twitter Users Call For Mass Deportation by geloorrrrdd(m): 7:01am On Jun 21|
IronGalaxy:You came late to the party, spongebob.
But instead of typing long notes, I'd rather let the pictures do the talking. You guys always overate your country like we don't know what's happening there. Isn't this SA? I can see the tarred roads and electricity you guys are on about.
Instead of spreading bad energy, let's all swallow our differences. We can all live together happily.
|Re: Deport Nigerians - South African Twitter Users Call For Mass Deportation by IronGalaxy: 11:33pm On Jun 21|
geloorrrrdd:so posting pictures of poor people proves what exactly? Was it a secret that poor people exist in SA as in anywhere in the world? I can post pictures of poor Americans does that now disproves that America is the richest country on earth? Poor people or not black South Africans are still the biggest middle class
Btw, a Nigerian have no business talking about poverty in the first place, most of you live under a dollar as it is
