This is like saying Joshua Matthew who claims to be kenyan with double Jewish names has to change his name or incur the wrath of the Jews

I weep for this kinda silly mentality

I am saying this again, that an average Igbo man is worse than a white Racist


Imagine how low a whole tribe can think

The bible already confirmed the wise men left the East since 1BC....Na mumu remain for there now cheesy cheesy

They're not igbos but most Nigerians see them as such

If they are not Igbo,what are they?
They are denying their Igbo identity on purpose.

How can someone deny their identity on purpose?

bantilosha:

It could be for political or economic reasons when the said identity is not favourable to them.
Peter the Rock denied Jesus on purpose to save his life.
Take for example in Rivers state,Obigbo LGA was previously under East Central(Southeast)state which Gowon created in 1967 then were all Igbos and identify as such until Imo state was created in 1976 and they were part of Imo state so was Egbema until boundary adjustment happened and they were carved into Rivers state in 1976,does that change their ethnicity? If they are claiming anything else today that is politics many of them were born as Imo state citizens, in fact Governor Sam Mbakwe went to court to get them back but failed.

Is a plantain a type of banana or banana a type of plantain?
Did Ibos exist first
Are those people using Ibo names or are Ibos using those people's names.
America is bigger than England can they tell English people to stop using American names?

r u saying other Igbo group colonized them and it’s why they speak on different dialects?
The same way British colonized America to what we now call American accents??

I am saying no one knows
What we know from research is that there is a family of lanbcalled called Igboid
and That in That family all languages bare not dialects of the other rather they have a common root.
It is called Igboid BECAUSE Igbo speakers are the largest group in terms of population
Not for any other reason

There is a family of Languages called Romance
Italian Spanish Portuguese,French etc
They share some names in common
E.g Roberto, Ronaldo,Maria,Christiano,Paula,Andrea,Davido, etc

No one group can claim.landfill these names
That is one way to think about it

it still drag you back to your previous argument.
Mind you weither you speak American accent or British accent you are still speaking English. Hence American have another word for “Come” that differs from how British say it .

That was Not the argument just an illustration

I suggest you go and study the classification of Igboid languages by Kay Williamson
The first author of an igbo dictionary and foremost authority.
If yo.u are not familiar with her work
You really are out of your depth here

There is difference between a dialect and a related language

A related language may be intelligible in one direction e.g many Portuguese speaker s understand Spanish though many Spanish speakers Do not not grasp Portuguese

Intelligibility is not what makes one a dialect of another

That is not relevant
Actually it is a stupid question
Why not ask what part of America I am from or what part of Spain?
Kay WIlliamson was white but she published an Igbo dictionary based on Onitsha dialect

you still consider intelligibility as part of your argument
So tell us the coronation on the word “come “ in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian languages that should be a first observation

Word might be similar but relatively can be understood by the wider population of the same language speakers.

I actually have not said anything about ethnic classification
I talked about linguistic classification
Linguistics is an academic pursuit and has nothing to do with where I am from

The number one authority on linguistics in much of the old Eastern region was a woman called Kay WIlliamson. Her published works are the main source of what I know
