Are We Prejudiced B/c Our Culture Formed Us That Way?

Are we prejudiced by nature or by experience?. Every Nigerian seems to be somewhat prejudiced from what I can witness from here. If you think you are not prejudiced, answer these questions sincerely.

1. You are Nigerian and you have a choice of picking one partner from a pool of three eligible ones. Three of them are likable and meet every standard you desire in a partner except that just one of them is from your tribe. Will you give the other two equal chances like the one from your tribe?. If your answer is yes, then answer question 2.

2. What if only one of the three people is black and Nigerian while the other two are Asian and European. Will you give the three an equal opportunity during your selection process without any form of bias?.

@Poster,

We are truly prejudiced often time by our immediate environment.

To answer you question,I am marrying for LOVE and no Tribal Sentiments,Ethnic Affliations or Religious Bias Can STOP That.

I love isi-ewu, Nkwobi and ofe nsala very much. So marrying an Igbo wife means that there's a great possibility that i don't have to teach my wife how to make this dishes which would take my precious time if i was to marry from another tribe. . . . so it just makes life easier cause she will understand me better.

I think Aloy.emeka is totally right. The only thing that would make me marry outside my tribe is if i find something special in that person that i don'tfound in someone from my tribe. So since they all have good equall attributes then i'd go for the girl from my tribe cos it will only make life easier.

You should know that the world has now become a global village and it has always been part of man to explore and conquer. Giving the three a chance depend on who u are, there are adventurous men that will find reasons to see the world through these ladies eyes and be ready to pick the one that gives him most joy and comfort for thats the aim of marriage. The culture is what u make of it, because we are in the new millenium.

The answers to those questions depend on who you are and whether or not you care to let your culture continue through you. If you don't care, then I don't think it would matter. If you did care, then I don't think you'd stray far from home to find a mate. Also, bias is inherent in all of us. That's how we make decisions. We all have preferences. So I don't see what the big deal is. Personally me, I can just barely conceive of me marrying outside Ngwa, let alone Igbo. . . how much more outside of Nigeria? I can be, and am cool with virtually anybody I meet. I don't mind doing business with different people (I believe in open-trade). I don't mind associating with a variety of different people. I don't mind collaborating with different kinds of people. But if I were to settle down with a partner, I'd prefer someone from home base.
