Thanks for sharing your experiences y'all. I can't say I will do NYSC after hearing all this. Thanks for letting me know what's up.

ThiefOfHearts:Is that what happened? . . . It prolly can't be 100% confirmed but that makes so much sense.

n-guage:Are you saying Chiwetel doesn't rep Naija? I don't really know since I'm not in the UK and have to seek out his interviews etc.
But you ain't lying. Folks aren't reppin' like they're supposed to! Having said that, I'm not convinced Cham is Naija. Anyhow, he won't get into the club until he says so properly.

Whitelexi, you have such common views, I'm sure you'll find a very common woman to share them with you.

Ogo means in-law (to us anyway).

Good point Tellmemore. I'm from Abia and I'm so used to "kalu" I didn't know it wasn't a name everywhere in Igbo state until you just told me. I like that though, b/c it adds to variety.
Also, there are some new names I like. As long as they sound Igbo enough I'm down. Occasionally I test one of these name s off my mom and she's like huh?. As for other names, I tend to be biased to the older "fetish" meanings. It's our culture.
|Romance / Re: White Girls Dating Nigerian Men by chinani(f): 12:45am On Nov 08, 2006|
Sista:You're right here. I think the difference btw the reaction to the women along w/ what I previously stated is that "we" do think white women are malleable. They want to take on the man's identity more than the black American woman might want to so if she's already having problems whereas I do think of white woman taking more shiit. Not saying all white women do.
Sista:Oh, I read/remember someone warning her not to get into a relationship w/ another one! I didn't write it personally others had and she hadn't wanted to hear it so I figured she'll reap what she sows.
Sista:Yes, Nigerians are guilty of being "partial" or favoring to white people. We need to work on this but it's not all of us.
Sista:Didn't see it myself but I read when you wrote about it on another thread. But some people are comforters or "devil's advocates". Did you read the thread called "IGBO GIRLS LOVE MONEY". A man (naija) was on there trying to bash Igbo girls and everyone came to insult him except for those who came to defend him and say whatever. So this isn't just a racial thing. There will always be people who defend or comfort others even if they don't deserve it.
Sista:Good for them. Less heartache later on.
Sista:I remember reading this. But your reaction is exactly the type of thing people want to avoid. At the time, I thought you were making a bru-ha-ha out of nothing. Maybe you didn't mean to sound defensive when you asked her why she had brought this up, but I read it that way. For what it's worth I think her answer was genuine but I don't know her.
Sista:I made that distinction b/c I think it's important to note that "we" (Africans) don't do it w/ ill intent or see the bad results.
Sista:Good point. We got to turn this ship around but I think we're doing so. Correction: I see lots of people changing but not everyone is open to change at this moment. Those of us who are need to be on our job, especially in day-to-day life though. It's not easy though. To me, the way this usually works or begins is by being frozen out. So at your place of employment and/or school a certain person won't be spoken to so the dialogue never happens. I've been that person more times than I can count.
