Black man's poor mindset.

We see little collaboration with the whites as a feat. It is so appalling that we've been beaten into this psychological submission that the whites are superior.

They had us in chains years back, they've still got some of us psychologically in chain today.

Beyonce is white?

We learn everyday!

Good for him. In as much as we criticize the police for their unprofessional attitudes and conducts, the much needed reform of the police will never come to be, without a corresponding reform of the weird mentality of Nigerians who continue to show rudeness and outright rascality to the men in uniform.

He should be dealt with in the same manner as the police that brutalize innocent citizens.

That's my take.

Men in uniform? Where's the uniform?

Phones / Re: I Regret Using ALAT By WEMA (the Biggest Mistake Ever Made By Me In 2019) by paraltero: 1:21am On Apr 08
Happened to me too. For over two months I kept regular correspondence with their customer service on social media and via phone calls.

What eventually solved it? I went to create a scene at the WEMA bank close to my workplace.

My account was activated within the hour.

The thing corporate entities fear almost as much as losing money is having a bad public image.

To be fair, I have had no issues with the account since then.

I thought it was just me that was wondering what was up with that arrest. Even when they arrest serial killers, they don't bundle them like sack of garri like that.

if that is not what is up for debate then dont bring it to the discussion, trying to make a rather poor point. duh!



you sir are an hypocrite... NIGERIA is a land of RACISTS.
- when fulanis/muslims are killing Christians in the north, is that NOT Racism?!
- when Igbo/yoruba glady insult one another on NL (simply based on their ethnicity), is that NOT racism?
- when parents dont want their children to marry outside of their tribes/ethnicity, is that NOT racism?

whether you like to admit it or not, the reality is that NIGERIANS ARE RACISTS, but suddenly when Chinaman is doing the same thing, you want to play holier than thou?! ok, keep deceiving yourself.

BTW, make the distinction between racism and tribalism when attempting to score points. Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa and Fulani are tribes, not races.

Dude, dial it back. It's an intermet discussion, not a senate hearing. Stop being so triggered.

So...your point is that because some other people are racist, it's fine to be racist?

MrBrownJay1:


it all depends where you are and who is watching... when US cops are killing unarmed black men by the boatload, we ALL know its due to RACISM, but they categorize it as cops doing their jobs; when a US presido is saying that he needs money to build a damn wall to keep a certain type of people away from the US, we all know this is blatant RACISM, but some may see it as the necessary steps into Making American Great Again! same as the travel ban on arab countries OR the torture and abuse @ Guantanamo etc etc etc



check your history book bro, the real racist and criminals, who have gladly killed/abused people due to the color of their skin/religion are closer to Washington that you may think. look what is happening in Palestine while the whole world watches and does NOTHING. watch what is happening in Congo and NOBODY is lifting a finger.... now kill ONE white person and see how the whole world will make ribbons for you, proudly write I AM "whatever" and raise hell to get you justice.

even you yourself are quick to mention Hitler as if this was the biggest genocide out there.... the same BS agenda which is quick to ask black people to forget about the 300yrs of slavery/murder/rape and abuse they have been through, yet telling the whole world to NEVER forget what Hitler did to the jews during a few yrs. you have been bamboozled!



keep living in fantasyland while now , thanks to Trump, hate crimes are on the rise in the US, racist anti-immigrant slurs are seen as "normal" (aka MAGA), and white supremacists can gladly parade themselves in Charlottesville and abuse the daylight out of blacks/latinos etc, while the US president DOESNT EVEN LIFT A FINGER or look down upon their actions. there is structural/systemic racism in America, and its not going anywhere... because whether you like it or not, its in the court system, the schools, the police stations, the government EVERYWHERE!

Who else is racist is not the subject of the discussion. The subject is: is the exclusion of Nigerians (who are, of course, black) from service at this restaurant an act of racism and should this be permitted? Asking whether white people have been or are racist is not pertinent to the discussion. If you want to start a campaign against white nationalism/supremace or American racism, hey, be my guest. That, however, is not what is up for debate. We've seen a clear act of racism against us in our own country and your excuse for permitting this is "Americans have been/are racist"? Come on!

their establishment, their rules.... that would be as stoopid as saying that women can enter a GENTLEMEN'S club (like the many you find in the UK).... or better yet, demanding to enter a club where the bouncer turned you down because you are black (but says its because you are not a member)....same shiiit, different day.

but hey, if you actually believe that you can get in any establishment in the US, regardless of your race, then you sir need to travel a BIT MORE. not even a NY taxi will stop for your black aaass, and we all know fully well WHY.

And what is it called when this happens? Racism or simple business policy?

It's opinions like these that allow racism and modern-day slavery to thrive. Imagine if the likes of Martin Luther had decided to "just go to other establishments that allow people of their color". Think you'd be mingling freely with whites the way we all are today? I'm Hitler and the Nazis started off with telling the Jews to "go where they are accepted". See how that turned out?

The world is working harder to erase and eradicate all forms of racism, bigotry and classism and people like you are here, making excuses for them!

The last time I visit Chinese restaurant the next day I turn lizard hunter. I need not explain further

It's not a matter of minor business policy. This is racism - pure and simple. It's where it starts from. Next thing, they employ our compatriots and treat them like total rubbish. It's responses like this that gives them the morale to do nonsense like this. It would have been even better if it were in China. At least, it's their land. But in Nigeria? Our own land? Where they are visitors? And you support this? This is how slavery started o!

To those asking if it's the only Chinese restaurant in Nigeria - you guys are several kinds of stupid. How can someone come to YOUR country, make use of YOUR country's resources like land, electricity and others, use YOUR country men as staff then refuse you service and choose to serve only his own nationals? That's ridiculous! Imagine going to a restaurant in the US or Canada or the UK and being told they don't serve blacks. It's not your country o, but you guys would come online to shout racism. But someone is doing it right in your country to your country-people and all you guys have to say is - "is it the only restaurant in Lagos"?

I wouldn't have an issue if, maybe, the policy was something like they don't sell alcohol to minors or they don't sell seafood or they don't allow people that are shabbily dressed in. Those ones can count as business policies. Not serving an entire race? The race of your host nation, for that matter? That is pure and blatant racism and they MUST be shut down!

It's like some of you have not experienced racism before, that's why you can talk nonsense.

Literature / Veda Shorts: The Bus Battles by paraltero: 1:15am On Mar 15
Life is funny. Life in Nigeria is funnier. Life in Lagos though? Well, take out your handkerchief because you’ll be in tears and you won’t be sure if it’s from the humour or the thought that hell must be overcrowded and the devil decided to purchase real estate in Nigeria.

So heading home from work every day, exhausted from another unfulfilling day, wondering what I spent five years in a university doing only to end up in a dead-end job that had nothing to do with all those courses I was kissing lecturers’ behinds for, I would study the roads and pedestrians as I made my way to the bus stop. At every intersection I passed between my workplace and the bus stop I intended to board a homebound bus are always small crowds of people, also corporately dressed, some looking even more depressed than I was and a few looking like the only thing stopping them from leaping into the Lagos lagoon was the distance it would take to get there. They were all waiting for buses to get them back home where they would spend roughly four hours if they were lucky before heading back to work the following day, tired, sleepy and very irritable. No wonder we could walk into some offices and witness shouting matches between employee and customer. “Bastard!”, “Idiot!”, “ko ni da fun e”? In a banking hall? With the customer service rep? Hah!

Of course, Lagos being Lagos, the buses were long in arriving. Traffic had already built up from Victoria Island to the mainland and was looking like the Israelite exodus from Egypt. People were beginning to trek singly or in small groups, to cover the distance gradually till they could find a bus to board. I always imagined that one day, someone would be trekking small small. Next thing, he or she has trekked all the way home to Ikeja from VI and would not spot a single bus to board along the way. Okadas were available, no doubt – for people who had like three debit cards and shop for clothes at the mall, not those of us that still haggle prices under the bridge at CMS. Those three cards would come in handy because the prices; Lord the prices the Okada guys would demand just to get you to the mainland! You would wonder if you were Dangote’s daughter’s husband – or Dangote’s daughter. Once, one guy walked up to a waiting Okada guy and asked how much it would cost to get him to Costain. 4,000 Naira was the response. The guy first hissed – a long and complete hiss, before bursting into laughter and walking away, jacket over his shoulder, laptop bag in hand, muttering to himself that it’s not his money someone would use to pay bride price or buy land. Make no mistake; someone else actually paid the okada guy the same amount to the same destination. Those of us whose pockets were telling us things we didn’t want to hear were stunned.

Then when a bus would actually arrive – hei gawd: the battle of Muzanga. Those corporately dressed guys and ladies that have been speaking through their nose to customers since morning? Don’t underestimate them o! Among them are boxers and wrestlers, potential WWE champions and Olympic gold medalists in boxing and wrestling. Once they spot the bus arriving, everybody primes themselves for the struggle ahead. Phones are held tightly in hand (pickpockets wear suits apparently, but that’s a story for another day), bags are worn properly so they don’t fall off, ties are stuffed in bags, cuff-links are removed, sleeves are rolled. Eyes dart and as the bus draws closer, the crowd moves closer to it, as if drawn by a special force of gravity the bus possesses. It’s even worse if the bus door is open because people take leaps of faith they’ve never taken in church or mosque before. There was once I saw an empty bus turn into my office street and did not stop once but somehow, by the time it got to the junction, it was full. And someone was hanging off the doorway too. Someone in a suit, suddenly giving conductors a run for their money.

If the driver has the foresight to keep his door closed, well, then you’d know that somewhere on these people’s CVs, opening all kinds of doors is also present. While the driver would be yelling for them to wait for him to come open the door himself, the more industrious suit and tie people are already attempting their own door-opening spells. One person would try the handle. Another person would slide open the window on the door and reach in to try opening it from inside. Meanwhile, a third would take the most direct route and try pulling the door off instead. The more creative ones would cut out the whole door nonsense, locate an open window, throw in their bags and dive in head-first. Then when the door finally opens – this is even more amusing because everyone would be trying to get in at the same time but no one would actually succeed for a while: so there’d be an empty bus with a crowd of people trying to get in without success like some sort of force field was preventing them. When one person finally gets half of his or her body in through the door, the frenzy doubles. I once witnessed one guy succeed in getting into the bus and was about to sit at the last space right beside the door. Before he could settle into the seat, someone pulled him out of the bus from outside and just as quickly as he fell out, someone else had taken his space and held on to the seat like it was bound for heaven lest he suffer the same fate as the previous near occupant.

Once, one lady got on a bus and dropped her bag to keep space for her friend/colleague who was clearly not up to the struggle. Of course, another lady fought her way onto the bus and sat on the bag before asking whose bag it was. The owner of the bag piped up, declaring the seat occupied and demanding the other lady vacates it as it belonged to her friend with the bag as evidence of that occupation. Without a word, the occupier removed the bag from under her, located the nearest window and flung it out, leaving the bag’s owner completely speechless and I, very amused.

On days like this, I just turn around, head back to the office, switch on the AC and use the office Wi-Fi to stream movies till 10 pm when the rush would have died down and I wouldn’t have to fight a second civil war to get home. No be me kill Jesus.

So what if the school was never registered, what does it have to do with the building collapse? What exactly is the requirement for registering if not to pay a large fee every year? The owner was very smart, he was chose to save his money instead. What i'm perplexed about is how all those guys in this picture have flat tummy and 6 packs, is it hunger or is it from their daily activities? I go to the gym 5 days a week, do push up, lift dumbell, do squats, do dead lift, do crunches and I still have no 6 pack. Maybe its not in my genes. Do you know that in 1994, Rashidi Yekini became the first player to score in the worldcup where Nigeria defeated Bulgaria 3-0?

I know this's off topic, but I found this joke funny.

A horse walks into a movie theater, gets his popcorn and a Diet Coke, and sits down in one of the few seats that are left.

He realizes right away there's a cow sitting directly in front of him wearing this huge hat, totally inappropriate to wear indoors, one of the big, tall Stetson hats, completely blocking his view.

So the horse taps the cow on the shoulder. Excuse me?

Cow doesn't budge. No response at all.

So again, the horse taps him on the shoulder. Excuse me?

The cow is like ice. He's like a statue.

So OK, one more time. He taps him on the shoulder. Hey, can you take off your hat?

Cow turns around. And he's like, oh, my God, it's a talking horse.

Don't mind them; I found this funny grin
