Itz just dat africans tend to do dier own openly! We are not ashamed of it!

But d white man will do his own in a subtle manner, i once read about global oil corporations were silently killing funding for research and development of cheaper & cleaner ways of transportation, eg anti-gravity, electric automobiles dat rily work, & sources of cheap power like dueterium from sea water! Just because of crude oil money

I agree dat black man's greed is excessive what with politicians stealing money that could last 3 generations.

Chei, it's bad. White men have lesser greed tendency becos their society has been built to support everyone

equally and they do not rever wealth.

Naturally Humans are greedy,its human nature.Every one want to be the most richest and therefore never satisfied with wants.

Share something between two toddlers who havent started talking yet and one takes the lion share,the other will frown and start weeping.In some cases,he or she wil scream and throw him or she self on the floor in protest of the sharing formula.

Biblical injunctions condemns it.

Every human being is born with a measure of greed. What makes the difference in everyone is the opportunity, checks and balances and self discipline.

That is why a Nigerian who grew up in the UK or the US would most likely have a lower level of greed than home grown fraudsters and looters because in Nigeria, the opportunity to develop your greed abounds and the checks are either so weak or almost non-existent! Discipline is it why some of us who grew up here and have not joined the league of looters and insatiable Nigerians, have been able to control our level of greed.

But believe me, all men are born with greed!

@Koiki.M

I agree with you.It's all about OPPRESSION of the fellow man.This is what differs us from whites.A white man might have a ferrari in his garage and still trek to work if it's a walkable distance.A black man on the other hand will roll out his SUV even if it's the next street he's going to e.g a tragic accident happened in festac a year or so ago.Some guy with his family rolled out in their SUV.They were heading to church.The church were they worshipped was less than 200 metres away from their home (less than 5 minutes walk).I don't know if he wasn't looking at the road or he wanted the "whole world" to see him driving but he knocked and crushed a pedestrian who was safelt away from the middle of the road.Imagine that.

Funny thing is we black people cause problems for ourselves.When someone is made in these lands, we always want everybody to know we have "arrived".A new house or car is celebrated with "washing" which in other words, is an excuse to show off.Mind you, over half of the people who come around aren't happy for you and some might be plotting one evil or the other against that person.Next thing, the ignoramus starts crying about "enemies" and "bad belle" people wey no want make him progress but it was the that invited them into his home in the first place.

Na wa for we people!

I agree with you.I underrated my post.You know, i used to think greed serves a purpose.Some people are greedy because they have more ambigous needs than others.Some are greedy coz they have bigger things they want to achieve in life.This is understandable coz a certain amount of greed (or ambition as i prefer to call it) can get you to greater heights in life.What i don't understand is the greed of we black people.It's totally senseless.I mean, what on earth does someone needs billions of dollars for?Is it to buy a third world country?To develop nuclear weapons?To sponsor terrorism?It's definitely not to live in mansions and drive bentleys and DB7's.So why do they loot this country the way they do?Most of the contracts are always over inflated e.g a road maintenance contract of N30 million is usually jacked up to N400 million.That's okay so long as they do the job but they dont.The most the contractor will put into the contract is N2 million to "scatter ground" and next thing, he announces "money don finish".It's not only our leaders and elite.IT'S EVERYONE OF US. For example, the worst mistake anyone building a house can do in nigeria today is to put money in the hands of "contractors".A house that shouldn't take more N25 million to complete will be left at decking level even after pumping over N50 million into it.Those of you who live abroad definitely have a few sad tales of woe in this issue.You send thousands of dollars for roofing of a house.You expect the house to be completed when you are coming down for christmas and when you get here, what you see is block work for foundation.I tire for we people!

All humans are greedy. Be it Black, White, Red and so on. But, as africans, I think our ways of life, mentality has put us on the forefront. This very bad. Everybody wants to have it all, so that you can oppress the other man. This is very unlike the Whites.

NO is the answer.By nature,we were born content.

But the demands of society soon change most people,but there are still few who still hold to their values.

Those few you will not find in a materialistic society like ours where material things are the only thing that society respects.

@Topic

People of all races are greedy but as much as i wouldn't want to appear racist, the black man has proven over and over again that we are the most greedy animals on the planet.I'll cite some differences :

WHITE MAN

(1)They travel around the whole to obtain resources for next to nothing and use these resources to not only aggrandise themselves but also develop their countries.

(2)Inspite of all the outrageous wealth they made from african countries, they still had focus of tomorrow.

BLACK MAN

(1)Loots from all corners e.g aid loans from IMF and World bank,the country itself and as if that is not enough, they also loot from the citizens for example, demanding tax for electronics which citizens bought with their own money of which the over priced taxes have already been paid by the importers in the form of VAT,Import duties and so on (I dey talk about Fashola).

(2)The black man doesn't think about anyone else but himself and maybe family.Anything before that is madness to a black man.That is why an I.G of police will put the pensions of retirees in a fix deposit account to yield interest.That is why a government official will loot over $50 billion USD while serving as president and send all that money to offshore accounts.This is money that will sustain at least 10 generations/1000 years and will remain in the billion dollar mark.This is money that most of them haven't even spent for one day.It gives them joy to see their people in want and suffering.This is why we are disrespected by the rest of the world.While other countries are developing their nations, we are busy crippling ours.The richest nations in Africa are the poorest due to the "curse" of resources.We can't say it's because we are not enlightened/educated coz most of the looters are people with several degrees from foriegn institutions.

One final example is the slave trade era.The foriegners never kidnapped anybody to sell.NOT EVEN ONE.It was we that sold our own people as slaves (that's why its called a TRADE).Till date, black haven't learnt anything.We still sell ourselves for peanuts e.g IMF loans with strings attached.

That's enough but i believe you get the idea.BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE MOST GREEDY ANIMALS ON EARTH.

God help us.
