@ Mrbrownjay,

just because you haven't been affected doesn't mean other Nigerians ( esp. if you are a non citizen immigrant, international student etc ) haven't been had negative experiences

read this except from a topic posted on the front page of this site:

Uk Whites Scampered For Safety After A Nigerian Identified Self At Train Station

. . .Specifically, Nigerians believed to be living in the UK illegally, have now gone into hiding for fear of being swooped on by[b] the Metropolitan Police, who are said to be keeping 24 hours surveillance over areas largely populated by Nigerians, [/b]with particular attention on Nigerians with any muslim name.

When Sunday Tribune visited Peckham, Hackneywick, East London, Stevelage and Watford, all outside London and other suburbs in the UK, which are known to be highly populated by blacks, an air of apprehension and fear of the unknown enveloped the area, with residents afraid of going out to engage in their normal daily routine.

It was also gathered that Nigerian students who are genuinely studying in the UK are now living in fear because of the belief that the application for the renewal of their visas to enable them continue with their studies would be rejected.

At the Heathrow and Gatwick airports, intending Nigerian travellers were made to go through serious and inhuman screening before being allowed to board any plane to any destination.

One of the passengers (names withheld), was ordered to remove his belt at the screening point and to the amusement of other Nigerians and travellers on the queue, his trousers fell off and he was almost unclothed, only for the security operatives to say “we are sorry.”

Another female Igbo traveller, who was visiting Nigeria for Christmas was ferried into the rest room by a female security operative at the airport; she returned complaining that she had been unduly insulted by the security officer.

Speaking with Sunday Tribune on her travail, the fair-looking Nigerian lady from Abia State who pleaded anonymity said, “I wonder why the uncivilised action of one person should be visited on all Nigerians, you needed to see the kind of insult I was subjected to in the toilet, my privacy was infringed upon.

last time i flew to the US, i had to take off my shoes 3 times (and i was just in transit!!!!) so i dont think life is going to be any different at US airports. its all the same, doesnt change my life ONE BIT.

if they remotely decide to detain me THEN WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!!!!

its not like you are in a hurry to go anywhere anyway, if you are then allow plenty of time for your "strip search" in between flights. et voila!

PS: you are talking about Nigerians, look at what happened to ALL ARABS(regardless of their country) when one saudi CU NT did what he did in 9/11. if you want to talk about unfairness, then i think you should talk about that.

doesnt affect me or change my life ONE BIT. . . . . . there has been terrorist from all over the world even US or UK(remember Richard Reid the shoe bomber or Timothy McVeigh) so the fact that this one was nigerian shouldnt affect anyone unless he was a close friend of yours.

on the other hand if the next 3 big attacks comes from nigerians then people should start worrying.
