|Why Tribalism Is Wack by Moorish: 6:56am On Oct 08, 2021
I’d make this succinct
You all know other races despise the African
Isn’t the hatred enough why add to it by hating yourselves ?
Bury that tribal ego
If this reaches 1 person
My 3mins wasn’t a waste

It's tough not to be trabalistic and racist, but when one had developed a high level of comprehending life and it's essence, one see beyond the colours, the languages and the conflicting ideologies

The only way to end tribalism is education

Abohboy:positive orientation and not the negative one then

Tribalism is wack, stupid band senseless.
Look at it this way,a man from the north hates southerners,yet if bandits,of the same tribe,have the slightest opportunity they will kidnap his kids in school,or book haram can attack his home town and wipe out his family.( He can lose everything to his fellow tribesmen)
A man from the east hates westerners,yet if kidnappers,of the same tribe, have the slightest opportunity they will kidnap him,if he doesn't have money he will be killed, or his lovely children stolen and sold,(He can lose everything to his fellow tribesmen).
A man from the west hates northerners or easterners, yet if ritualist of the same tribe have the slightest opportunity,they will kill him and dismember his body and sell for little change, or his wife could enter one chance bus,and robbed,and thrown out of the bus( He can lose everything to his fellow tribesmen).
If your own tribesmen can harm you and make you lose all you hold there in the world,why then do you hate other tribes who might never harm you ever in anyway?
It's a pity that online hate speech and tribalism is rampant mostly among the youths of southern extraction,who are mostly Christians. For what? Because of politicians smh

There is a difference between tribalism and nationalism. Not knowing the difference is wack

What we experience in Nigeria is tribalism it is based on ethnic groups or tribes and not on any nation the sole foundation for these nations existence is built upon tribalism so your point is null and void from the start
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by NubaVertigo(m): 5:49am On Oct 09, 2021
What you are seeing in Nigeria are not tribes

Yes they are what are you talking about the Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa, Edo, Ibibio etc are all ethnic groups or what are called tribes so yes Nigeria's problem isn't nationalism but tribalism it would be a different story if these nations weren't clearly ethnicity or tribally based then your point would actually make sense
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by Moorish: 9:51pm On Oct 11, 2021
NubaVertigo:Ok, I get where you are going with this
So even if yoruba, Hausa etc are nations and not tribes.. is it then permissible to hate another nation ?

Tribalism in this country has been hijacked by politicians to secure sure zones during elections. There's no bad in standing for a person from your locality but if you look from a distance we Nigerians are all a people (negroes) with exactly the same racial features suffering from the same plague of failed leadership and parasitic foreign Invaders. We're a common race with a generic poverty - that should be enough to unite us as one tribe.
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by Moorish: 1:48pm On Oct 13, 2021
Everyone else hates us. From the Chinese to the Arabs and whites, they all despise us and see us as beneath them.. why then should we hate ourselves ? Isn’t that too much ? Isn’t that daft ?
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by Moorish: 1:49pm On Oct 13, 2021
ANON333:I’d also mention our parents are part of the problem
All my friends who tried to marry another tribe had to contend with their parents disapproval. Some succeeded, some caved in to parents pressure

Ynix:Great post but I will also add that anyone who understands business and productivity will hardly be a tribalist or racist cos you extract value from people of all tribes and nations on a daily basis
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by Ynix(m): 2:21pm On Oct 13, 2021
Moorish:You are so on point
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by ANON333: 3:29pm On Nov 10, 2021
I agree with you 100%
|Re: Why Tribalism Is Wack by Moorish: 7:14pm On Nov 16, 2021
Greatzeus:I read this post when you first made it but I had to come back here to digest this wisdom again
So basically there are good and bad humans in every tribe/ethnicity so we should focus on the good people irrespective of ethnicity
Thanks for blessing this thread with your introspection
