helinues:Please I hope this is not just talk.
I am from the SS but I have been a beneficiary of your people’s warmth and I hate the way it’s taken for granted. It’s disgusting the things you guys tolerate from people that don’t wish your tribe well at all.
Your liberalness will be your demise if something is not done on time.

All of them are trans.
But at least they don’t bother anybody.

Bosnia’s application with them is still hanging since 2003. It still hasn’t been approved.
They won’t accept Ukraine

But Africa has already rushed to side with the US instead of maintaining neutrality at least!
Our journey is very far.

I am always happy whenever I hear incidences of racism against them. Maybe it will ginger them to finally have shame and build like other men have done.
But for where? They will rather be slaves to whitey than stand like men. It’s the reason they are so particular about submission. Nobody respects or regards them outside. So they carry that anger and heap it on the ONLY people they think they have power over.
When you ask them for their contribution to civilization they will mention eighteenth century garbage.

dasparrow:Well, you diasporans should take the blame.
You all tell us how whites welcome with you open arms and how tribalism is worse than racism.
You show us how rich you become immediately you land there as money is everywhere and how everything works.
So who won’t want to go

tensazangetsu20:God is your strength.
My late cousin left three children, all under five. I have been dodging the responsibility but I know a day will come that I will have to do the right thing. Not anytime soon though.
If not for the health implications, I would have done hysterectomy a long time ago because I don’t see the use of bringing children into this world. But what do I know? I’m abnormal according to everyone.
You’re doing well sir.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Wow Pictures! New Militant 'Xenophobic' Movement In SA Called 'Operation Dudula' by Coolabbie: 6:13am On Feb 24|
If you people want to kill all the immigrants there, please do.
We don’t care here in Nigeria because people are warned about going there.
Carry your stale news away from here. What you are doing is no different from what you’ve been doing and we are bored at this point.
There are more interesting things happening in Ukraine abegi!
Btw, I have a cousin working as a doctor there and being paid well too. He isn’t even worried because he lives in the white enclave and you guys can’t make him leave. I know he is VERY safe because you guys would never dare attempt to touch your white masters.

I am always thankful that I discovered this thread and this section. The discussions have really been enlightening and helped in getting my finances in order.
Thank you for the conversation.

|Investment / Re: Treasury Bills In Nigeria by Coolabbie: 1:30pm On Nov 10, 2021|
EarlyCareer:This is an understatement!!!
As a freelancer, I recently interviewed for a $40/hr position. I was bummed when I did not get it but that feeling vanished when I stumbled on that subreddit.
Much of the people there are earning between $7 - $22/hr. I even saw where someone is earning $2.50/hr in America! To put it in context, I started freelancing a while back and I was charging $15/hr as a newbie, in Nigeria.
And these positions over there require you working 80 hours a week, at least. For me, it’s a very busy week when I work up to 30 hours. Sad thing is that most of them are juggling 2-3 jobs and still can’t make ends meet!
I am presently camped on that sub and just reading. I am still reading. The fact that this is mostly the experience of white Americans is another thing that makes me shudder. Like they say over there, “If white America catches a cold, black America gets pneumonia, not cough.” So if the whites are shouting like this…
It is well.

Still on this US subject, I stumbled on the antiwork subreddit where Americans where bemoaning the fate of their country and how they are poorly paid, with many even calling their country a shithole and asking for Europe to colonize them.
I almost thought I was on nairaland.
It made me realize that maybe the true divide is between the haves and the haves not. All these issues about race, tribe, religion are just mere distractions.
|Family / Re: Her Family Says I Can't Marry Her Because I'm An SSCE Holder by Coolabbie: 12:14pm On Oct 19, 2021|
pocohantas:I can so relate.
My parents married very early. In fact, my mama don born all her children finish at my age.
But my papa no even wan hear 'mar' not to talk of 'rriage' from me now.
He will ask me where I am rushing to or who dey pursue me.
His own na to send me every news about NOI, Christine Lagarde, Chimamanda et al. But I just want to be a baby girl
So when I see some girls talking about pressure from family to marry, I find it difficult to relate.
Indeed, times are a changing.

WoundedLamb:Oh most of us understand but it's a battle of egos. It doesn't help that there is also a massive indoctrination going on.
This site was never this bad; the toxicity was usually contained to the politics section. This section was primarily for lighthearted banters and flirtings. That was until a Zimbabwean baby daddy arrived with his redpill ideology to 'free men' from their chains. Imagine Nigerian men believing they are victims of women! This same Nigeria that a man can throw out his wife of 30years from "his house" with nothing and no one blinks an eye.
You've been around long enough so you must have known about the NL pageants that used to be a massive buzz around here. I shudder to think of the dehumanization those women would be subjected to if it were to happen today.
The site is fast turning into a sausage fest and I think they prefer it that way.
Anyway, they can bark and vent online about how we should be like their mothers; we've allowed them that space. It won't stop the already changing tide.
They also know the tide is turning which is why the screeching is at an all-time high.
I'm sorry I won't apologize for the destruction. That's an acceptable rookie mistake for a native English speaker.
I've been learning the language for some months now on Duolingo and it's been...sigh. I just don't understand why words have to be male and female.
It was fun understanding some of the sentences you wrote in French, though. It lets me know my lessons are not in vain.
I'll try again.
Tu es genial

Some hours ago, I was really incensed about a post on nairaland and logged in to "enter the gutters" with the poster. But first, I calmed myself down a bit to look through the profile of the offending nlder.
And that was where I stumbled on a post of yours he quoted.
I immediately thought you were female. And so I went through your posts.
Some hours later, I have all but forgotten about the anger that made me log in. Seeing Nigeria through the eyes of a non-native is sad and hilarious at the same time. Couldn't help chuckling at your honest reactions to some things deemed normal here especially the insults.
I really don't know why I am writing this but thank you for being a male with empathy. It's difficult finding it around here.
Thank you for your civility and choosing to share your experiences without being condescending.
Tu es génial personne
