Yoruba Race: You are being manipulated if you do these 11

One thing about manipulation is that the person being manipulated will think everything is Ok and that he or she is doing the right thing. Here are 11 signs to know whether you are being manipulated as a Yoruba human.

#1. You revoke your Yoruba name because it has one of the Orishas in it: Whether it’s your pastor that convinced you by giving you some spiritual excuses or its because you want to travel out of Nigeria, one way or the other you are been manipulated.

#2. You see Yoruba religion as idolatry: all the world religion is idolatry, including all the Abrahamic religion: Christianity, Islam, name it. For a religion to be idolatry, there must be (a). items of worship or of reference to deity like pictures or statutes e.g. the cross, Kaaba of the Bedouin tribes; (b). religion rituals such as the killing of rams, Holy communion; and then (c). Human-God reference or representative and or messenger, (d). Kissing of a rock.

#3. You totally believe the slave trade narration as better explanation for the appearance of the Yoruba race all over the world: This is a lie that we are been told again and again. Yoruba are believed to be part of the pre-Columbia American.

#4. You derogatory call the Yoruba language “vernacular” and shun children and young adult from speaking it: The word "vernacular" in itself is not a negative word as it is simply can mean "indigenous language of a people". If a people are prevented from speaking their language, then who will?

#5. You do not have many Yoruba traditional wears: If you think that putting on of Yoruba cloth will make you look less "corporate", and you don't really care about acquiring Yoruba traditional outfit, you may need to have a rethink about your heritage and start taking deliberate effort about this.

#6. You prefer foreign music to Yoruba: non Yoruba music are all good, in fact you can get spiritual and entertained through music, but manipulation set in when you start making illogical preference to non-Yoruba music and think music about Yoruba Orisha, culture and tradition are bad.

#7. You cannot recite some of the Yoruba poems and rhymes: Poems and rhymes are part of your cultural identity. The poems were created to teach morals and inculcate the Omoluabi character. If you defaulted here, then now is the time not to only start learning but to also teach your children. Teachers in schools should also encourage teaching and memorising of these. Have you seen the beauty of: Toju Iwa, Ise loogun ise, Kini n o fole se laye ti mo wa...

#8. You do not have a Yoruba name or you hate being called by your Yoruba name.

#9. You name your children many non-Yoruba name and prefer to call them by their non-Yoruba names: This is also a sign of been manipulated.

#10. Your children cannot speak Yoruba: They speak other language fluently but you frowning at them whenever they speak Yoruba is inferiority complex and a sign of been manipulated. This is not even in the Yoruba gene. 'A complete child' should be taught to speak not only foreign language fluently but also Yoruba.

#11. You think that explaining of concepts with Yoruba in schools is bad: how better will a student understand than when tough concepts are explained using the student's native language.

I am an Igbo guy, and I approve of this message 100%.

This colonial mentality has to stop. Can you imagine someone bragging about their children's INABILITY to speak their native language just because they want to form oyibo? People are wearing thick dark coats under African hot sun and speaking supri-supri from their nostrils in imitating oyibo when they don't even know the ancestral communities...All of them jampack in Lagos trying to japa and forget to build their root communities as the source of cultural pride anywhere in the world.

Please increase the volume of your message and extend it to all other African cultures and communities

Foremost the Yorubas and Igbos are guilty of this.
No matter how educated a Northerner can be, he will never speak a foreign language to his children unlike the other tribes, they can't even make a sentence without an infusion of English.

I agree with most of these, but we're all over the world because of business and education these days. Same with Igbo. It has been long enough that the slave trade, land bridge natives etc doesnt matter anymore.
Plus, regardless of origin, African diasporas through natives, slavery, whatever tend to lose their connection to tribe/ethnicity.
I have a friend in uni who recently discovered he is a quarter Mandinka due to the slave trade in Mexico and is reluctant to embrace the culture of the ethnicity or even of Guinea and the Senegambia overall. I dont know if the diaspora who dont consider themselves yoruba count.
