Is It That There Is Nothing To Code Anymore? by MountainView: 6:23pm On Aug 10
Alright guys, I've really been trying to figure out what to code with my time, believe me there is nothing coming out from my head, I just realised that almost everything I needed is already online and I just want to contribute my own quota to the society, it just happens to be that there is little or nothing to contribute.

If inventors had this same mentality the phone and the internet you use now would not have been in existence.
Phones have existed since time immemorial but the ones we celebrate today are only a refined version of the former.

Lesson: If you can't figure it out learn to modify what has been done and create a better version of it.

Bro, I don't really think so, just take a look at the major inventions in the world from the internet to mobile phones to the idea of cloud computing, even computing itself, 4G, 5G, Quantum Physics, TV Facebook, Instagram they were all invented by the whites, for a very particular reason, which is the fact that they are light years ahead of us(blacks)

Now let me ask you what has any black man invented in the last two centuries that you can mention?



as for Nigeria, it's very impossible to create something that works except you have the finance to fund it,

Nairaland was created in 2004 or so, and the reason Nairaland is so popular today is because of the fact that it came at a time when so many people didn't even understand what the internet is all about,

Quote me anywhere "Nairaland is the greatest internet invention Africa has".

Why do you want to downplay the achievements of blacks? Why have you bought the unfair propaganda of the western world that they are more superior than us? Thank God for china. China has shown to us that if we believe in ourself we can outclass the white people. Even here in europe, the chinese dont care or asslick the white because you know why they are are proud and believe in themselves. The code you are talking about was designed by white why dont you go to the foundation of this code and create somehing new? Look at the nobel prize and turing prize, created by the western world for themselves but look at blacks dying to get nobel prize. If not for good conscience, I am ready to kick the arse of any whiteman.

I beg to differ. A white man has the same brain capacity as a black man the only difference is "insight". If you can only think unconventionally and start working relentlessly you'll be 10x better than the whites whom you exalt.

Take a careful observation of men who made impact and you will see that government was not responsible for financing their vision but an undying passion fostered their journey to stardom.

However, it will be wrong to assume that the black man has invented nothing for humanity. The following will clear your doubt;

Dr. Shirley Jackson: Her experiments with theoretical physics paved the way for numerous developments in the telecommunication space including the touch-tone telephone, the portable fax, caller ID, call waiting, and the fiber-optic cable.

Marie Van Brittan Brown: Did you know that the first home security system was invented by a Black nurse?

Otis Boykin:Boykin had 26 patents in his name and is famed for the development of IBM computers, burglar-proof cash register, chemical air filters, and an electronic resistor used in controlled missiles and other devices.

You might be just a programmer that has no business acument , and I wouldn't blame you for that but in Africa as a programmer the hustle and bustle of an Africans should push to be not just a coder but a person sieze up any opportunity and add a little to it.

There's something I want to let you know here, even I myself have at one time or there other invented something but the question, what is the level of impact your invention has made, let me say this, every technology has an underlining principle that governs it, the idea of wireless charging was not conceived today, the very concepts that rule our technology day-to-day life were all invented by the whites whether Chinese or no Chinese, African doesn't give room for innovative minds to move forward , the same reason why Elon Musk left South Africa, to canada, finally to the U.S.

We've had Big Brother in different parts of the world, immediately it came to Nigeria, boom!! it became something else.

Africa is cursed!

Easy said than done. A white man is very much like a blackman but history has helped us understand that they think very differently. The whiteman seem to be more iincline to innovations and development of his society and ways of behavior, but a typical blackman is out there for the good of his family and himself, If you doubt me one this take a look at the typical African Society, virtually 80% of the the African Society are filled with poverty stricken citizens, lack of basic facility and gross illiteracy. But this seem to be reverse of the white men. In my opinion, Africa has a lot of work to do. The chanting of believe in yourself has not be proven by Africans. We can do it but we need decade of readjustment.

Innovation thrives in an undeveloped area. Instead of condemning the land of your birth why don't you think of a way to make things work. It doesn't require an organization to make a change it only requires a mind seeking solution in chaos.

It will interest you to know that the countries whom you praise as superior in technology is a collective effort of the contribution of it's citizenry.

Nigerian's are breaking record worldwide but you fail to see and acknowledge it because you have concluded that nothing good can come out from Africa. A man who only sees negative in chaos can never be innovative. When a black man has rendered himself inferior to his fellow man why won't they address him as a monkey and sh*t-hole.

Have some level self esteem and think of a way forward instead of belittling the black race because the same God who created the blacks also created the whites; it is not a matter of skin color or size of brain but a function of the quality of your thought; for as a man thinks in his heart so is he.

History made us understand they made us slaves and plundered our resources. That was the only their brain told them to . Would you say the same of the chinese? would you say the same for philip emeagwali? or the owners of paystack? Their efforts are helping mankind too, don't you think so. Are you telling me that the black man has never achieved anything?

is the author of the above link stupid? Don't you see you are subscribing to what James Watson nobel prize winner said about our intelligence. By the year 2022, I would be the first African man to expand the knowledge about Post Quantum Cryptography. Would you downplay that achievement because I am a black man?
They colonised you for 75 years, gave you religion, gave you language, gave you their books, how do you expect to develop. Go to china, they have destroyed everything west. When trump wanted to crumble huawei, they brought HarmonyOS. Thats what Africa needs to do. We need to destroy everything west. Look at Innoson, would you want to buy an Innoson, no. You would prefer toyota.
What do you mean intelligence? Do you know in my village, local healers are healing more people from ailments more than doctors trained by western education. Is that not intelligence? They even live longer than people in the city. More wisdom, is that not intelligence?
Please cure yourself from self hatred. I have lived in europe long enough to tell you that.

You are good at twisting history and cherry picking events to just drive home your point. First, you didn't tell us that our African kings and chiefs took part in the slave trade, grin if you deny it, then you didn't read history. Westerners has left us alone for more than 65 years now and yet Africa can't seem to get it agenda in the right path. The western system of Government was far better than our kingship ways of ruling, then it was a throne used to oppress and carry out unspeakable evil and suppression. If you say I am lying, read how Africans participated in the slave trade and I bet you will hate most of our kings today.
You can keep up the blame game, at least that is what Africa has been doing for long.
Note I am not talking about black man or white who is superior here, infact no race is superior.
I am only talking Africa vs Western society. So please don't drag racism into this discussion.

in every society there would always be a willing tool. Even judas betrayed Jesus. Do you know whether they were manipulated and threatened to do such after much firepower and carnage? Of course the history writers would not tell you that. Lol. Imagine raping someone for 75 years and then leaving him alone for 65 years, what strength is left for such an individual? The israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years, you can read exodus to know the consequences of that. Who told you that? Lol. Go and read history my friend. This people killed and raped our people even as colonial masters. Look at what is happening now were foreign bosses are enslaving and victimizing their nigerian employees. Why did they kill thomas sankara through proxy? You think this people are not ruling africa by proxy? Why did france intervene in Gabon?
I am telling you the whiteman sees himself as more superior than you. Even a 3 year old white girl sees you as a monkey and I am trying to tell you how to overcome which china did but you are still stuck in a history the whiteman handed down to you. Read chinua achebe it would help you.

All I see here is blame game. The historians were not white men! point of correction, they were blackmen from this continent who took years of research and study of archeology. one of them is Stanley Igwe.
You certainly have bought into the blame game. many Big villages raided and destroy other smaller villages and sold the captures as slave in exchange for mirror, alcoholic drinks, weapons.
Almost at no point did the whitemen entered using bruteforce. Kings sold their slaves and criminals in numbers, bro I can go on. Who ever needs apologies should ask it from Africans themselves, the story was so much horror that even many African refuse to believe it. The white man and blackman particpated in the slave trade.
I see you're a kid who hasn't spent time to learn about africa society. About two country that wasn't colonized which where Ethiopia and Liberia. Let me ask you, have you watched a documentary about them and noticed that they are very undeveloped?
South Africa that was colonized most till today is the most developed Africa state.
Bro, Let not lie to ourselves, we have alot of work to do, No white man weakened us because if you use slavery as a cover then it mean both the white and our forefathers weakened us. and maybe the descendants or the believers of the forefather are still around.

give me the link of the historians who are black men that wrote that against their people, who never for one day took notes from a whiteman. Those men who allegedly sold thier people are dead and would not be here to defend themselves or is is the red indians in america or the aborigines in australia? Liberia was not colonized because it was a country formed by ex-slaves.

This is the real account from an african point of view and not propaganda sold by the west. Thats why I love china, if African can emulate them we will go very far. You call me a kid and I call you a self hating black man who is not even proud of his heritage.

Stop mincing my words, I never said Africans sold themselves into slavery, I said It's rulers also participated in the slavery. How can one sell itself into a journey of torture and torment. Didn't I specify than whitemen bought black slaves from cheifs, kings and rulers. So stop twisting this into black vs white. Africa has rested on this slavery of a thing so much. It is high time we develop our selfs, ridding off what ever advancement in modern science and knowledge we have reached now is nothing but backwardness. Mind you the white didn't bring religion to us, our fathers and mothers worship gods and the likes, Christianity and islam is not the problem of Nigeria. A man that stole billions of Naira without been arrested and money retrieved is the source of our downfall. Majority of Africa country are poor because of mismanagement and corruption. Did the white teach us this corrupt practices that they themselves don't do in their country?
Africa has alot of natural resources, but all we do is to ship them out to the whites to refine for us. Is that the way to go? Are the white responsible for this? Are the white responsible for Africans not having a company that manufacture phones here In Africa? Did they force us to buy their Apple and sony?
Bro please stop this game already, you could go till night and complain bitterly of all the past evil Africans has experienced but it is not a justification that Africa has not proven themselves in recent times.
I am a proud blackman but I need to state the truth about my own continent Africa. and the truth is this..... Posterity would not be happy with us if they find us like this.

This is what china you mentioned did, they simple developed themselves and not sit all day and point fingers, although recently some of there action are becoming overblown but that is because they are now self sufficient.

Stop mincing my words, I never said Africans sold themselves into slavery, I said It's rulers also participated in the slavery. How can one sell itself into a journey of torture and torment. Didn't I specify than whitemen bought black slaves from cheifs, kings and rulers. So stop twisting this into black vs white. Africa has rested on this slavery of a thing so much. It is high time we develop our selfs, ridding off what ever advancement in modern science and knowledge we have reached now is nothing but backwardness. Mind you the white didn't bring religion to us, our fathers and mothers worship gods and the likes, Christianity and islam is not the problem of Nigeria.

Are the rulers not africans? is still the same thing. It is actually a black vs white thing because you don't know how this people see you. You live in a big bubble. I dont think you have lived with whites for more than a year. I am not saying religion is our problem, I said they gave us their own religion and way of life, their education but you cannot use another man's way of life to solve your problem.. The man stole the money went to the west to keep it and they gladly took it from him to develop their country, thats how you should put it. Then when it was demanded back from them, they started giving stories. Why has dieziani never been repatriated? The white encourage corruption in Africa because they benefit from it but smile at you that they are against it. Dangote is building a refinery. Algeria has refinery, even morroco and south africa. it is only Nigeria that ships it out because of bad leaders and a country united under a white man's experiment. Is phone manufacturing your problem? Countries that manufacture phones don't have crude oil. Does Uk or USA manufacture phone? they only do design and ship it to china to manufacture for them.
Is Paystack not enough for you? Isn't Nigerians manufacturing drones and cars? What of Zinox? The truth you are a black man who sees the whiteman as better than africans not knowing that our circumstance and culture is different.
