Yes, and that's why I kind of feel the pains of those in the new world whose ancestry was from that dark history. Obviously, slavery back them was a norm - and serfdom was a universal thing. However, I believe those slave traders never knew what they were getting themselves into, and the horrible things the slaves were subjected to. And that has created a generational thing that both blacks in Africa and the new world are yet to recover from.

quite sure they knew.

there were african sailors on transatlantic ships and besides, returnee slaves were also many.

the tribes that traded directly with europeans knew exactly what was going on, do you have any proof they didnt?

wetin concern sentiment with this matter?

your argument should be some of the traders may have felt the captured folks might be getting a better life overseas (in some way), not that they were unaware how it was.

Anyway, I feel their pains and I understand the struggles of those in the new world. Hence I'll never look down on them. The experience in black diaspora today is also relative for both those in the new world and, 2nd/3rd generation Africans. The legacy of the slave trade, and why it's always better to look for ways to bridge the gap.

some gaps will never be bridged dear.

Health / Re: Ebola: Can We Now Begin To Eat Our Bush Meat? by tpia1: 4:43pm On Oct 07, 2014
is bush meat really bush meat?

for example, the high volume of grasscutters would seem to indicate animal farming imo.

given the consumption rate?

i could be wrong though.

Right on the money. Ijebu sold a lot of slaves via Epe. And my pops is from Epe, and from a royal lineage there. So, the people must have been connected with slave trade one way or the other. Hence every time I read about the horrors of slavery, I just feel a certain way. That was basically wickedness. And those people didn't really understand what they were doing back then.

quite sure they did.

That said, a lot of Ijebus were also sold into slavery. And I'd say majority of the slaves shipped into the new world were captured because the total number of people shipped to the new was just too many, for it to have happened via trade alone. More than 40 million people, with over 300,000 sailors. Very dark history!

true that.

There is this orientation given by our elders that, there are some town within yoruba that they don't marry each other, and when they coincidentally do, bad things will happen to them.
They said, it is advisable for those areas to marry themselves than inter-marriage with other areas. This leads to the place like Ijebu in ogun state, where due to some things in the part, those who are not from Ijebu area are not advisable to marry from Ijebu. Whereas I envisage Ijebu citizens are not comfortable with this perception from other areas within yoruba with my recent encounter with some Ijebu citizen.
What is your opinion about this diatribe/bitter criticism within yoruba's sons and daughters?
Do you think we are in the right direction?

Your perception about this may help in great ways in our yorubaland!

what type of help exactly are you looking for?

instead of all this rumour mongering via web, why not do something better like accepting Jesus into your life?

if you are searching for a spouse, the best way to start is with prayer.

@TV01, you have said a good and encouraging point. I want to believe you are from Ijebu?
As to your question, I belong to people of Akoko land in Ondo state. So am I good to marry your Ijebu person?

Bro, if you are indeed what you claim, you'd know akoko people have a long history of intermarriage with ogun state axis.

perhaps you dont?

as per objections to the union, that is nothing new- most yorubas will not approve people marrying from certain areas outside their locality.

Sounds like my kind of women.
Do you know any ijebu lady I can befriend?



my brother

I have never been to Ogun State, except in transit on the way to lagos.

That is what i know.

Just mentioning this because you may start believing your own lies, not sure what you are up to this time or who your target audience is.

God will not do the finding for you, its something you have to do yourself.

If you are waiting for God to cherrypick a partner on your behalf because you are too lazy to look for one , you are on a long thing.

@ bolded

the checks are to confirm and investigate the statuses indicated on the questionnaire, and parents and family are not mentioned.

Doubtless both will be introduced somewhere, but my point is it should not be an afterthought.

Nairaland / General / Re: Nairaland State Of The Union Thread by tpia1: 3:06am On Oct 07, 2014
by "things happening", i'm referring to issues i have pointed out recently.

- my incessant banning for breaking no rules

-being hounded by certain elements for whatever reason, probably they have some ancient grudge/s or are bearing other people's burden/s as some kind of mutually beneficial relationship for them and the other party or parties

-surreptitious guerilla warfare in certain sections like tv and movies

- the issues raised in the thread i opened today, which has been removed.

etc etc.
Nairaland / General / Nairaland State Of The Union Thread by tpia1: 3:01am On Oct 07, 2014
i must say, things happening on the forum these days, seem geared towards discriminating against certain of us here.

The thread i opened today, on an issue which gave me great concern, is one example of what i mean.

i am not saying people should not do what they feel is in the best interest of the forum and neither am i advocating the site be left to grow wild, however, imo there should at least be the courtesy of informing us when drastic measures are being taken to curtail whatever it is that needs to be curtailed.

just an opinion.

You people dont get it,when i said satisfied with the life your living,i didnt mean money or achievements,as nigerians thats the only thing we think of,i meant morally,your relationship with ur family,strangers,how u treat others,happiness,contentment for being alive etc.

perhaps your question should be are you happy with yourself.

some people are constantly berating themselves over what they think might have been, instead of accepting themselves as they are.

as for me,

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith on Canaan’s tableland;
A higher plane than I have found,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.

My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim, is higher ground.

I want to live above the world,
Though Satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught the joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground.

I want to scale the utmost height
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till rest I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on to higher ground.”

Know the Enemy:

Never start a fight that you can't finish. Some end in blood whilst others end in generational curses and misfortune for your offspring. In his famous book titled the ''48 Laws of Power'' Robert Green wrote that there are certain types of people that you must avoid offending. Such people never forget a slight and they never forgive an injury. When you poke such people in the eye or provoke them beyond their level of toleration they insist on not just taking an eye for an eye but rather on taking a head for an eye.

The morale of the tale is as follows: never bring out the beast in an otherwise gentle and pleasant soul. The consequences of doing so are best unimagined. When you seek to dishonor and disgrace such a person their only recourse is to shed your blood or that of your loved ones, take your life, spit on your grave and mock your soul.

Worst still they don't give a damn about the consequences of their brutal actions. They are prepared to pay the price for their callous brutality both in this world and the next.Beware of such people and don't be too eager to provoke or push them over the brink. To do so would be the biggest mistake of your life and it will cost you dearly. It is like goading a bear or pulling the tail of a lion. It is dangerous and it is life-threatening.May God deliver us from dangerous and bloodthirsty souls and from individuals that are so pychotic, hateful, blind and reckless that they invite calamity and tragedy upon their own heads.

If you insist on choosing the path of war then first find out who your enemy really is and consider whether you are ready to pay the price that he might demand for your challenge. This is wisdom.

sometimes there are undiagnosed mental problems involved.
