It's so good to live in the greatest city in the world. There so many Naija people around that there is an indigenous association for every Naija state. There is a Naija event, not to talk of an African event, happening somewhere every weekend. I have a choice of egusi or okro soup with goat meat for dinner, at one of the many African restaurants around. Or I might just decide to have some goat-head and a bottle of gulder (yes, gulder from Naija).

It feels so good living the life of a Naijaman in this confluence of the universe.

It's just an estimation but I'm sure I'm almost accurate. Racism in my school is towards the Whites because they're in the minority. But the racism where I live in is towards the Arabs. The day I saw an Arab at my bus stop, I almost fainted, everyone was looking at her.

It's like racism in America towards blacks, centuries ago.

I'm not the only Black person where I live. Actually, it's made up of Whites, Blacks and Mixed races.

I've never experienced racism because my school is mixed:

70 % Muslims (Arabs, Turks --- )

15% Blacks

14 % White

1 % Other (Hispanics, Asians --- )

Eve, I'm so sorry. I wish I was in Holland with you.

like me, i no care wetin dem people wan sey, i just that it annoys me when other black people, especially dem silly jamaicans(no offense to anyone. we just happen to have alot of them in my area, for some odd reason) act so ignorant. behavior like that is what i expect from white and spanish because they don't know. but to hear it from black people, its like, youre african too because your ancestors are african. black people i let them slide, just a little bit, because they too can get confused at time. but to me, i think that jamaicans are more ignorant when they look closer to afraicans then the black americans. i mean come on, lets see, they speak broken, like africans, they eat food that came from africa, but yet they claim that they are not black. everytime i tell them that they are black. they tell me, no i'm not black, i'm jamaican. youre not even black because you are african. that kind of responds is so silly. but, wetin can i sey.

that was funny and true. all this nature shows and what not protray as differently when we know damn well its not like that. i think tv shows and people should ask a african themselve how life is. they shouldn't have to assume for themselves and just make up any story.

you girls need to see me tell them stories. since they are ignorant, use it as an advantage. tell them yes, u play with lions and u even sleep with anacondas and bath with the elephants. that u have tigers as pets and monkeys as maid. that you have hynahs as domestic animals.

if u see me tell story ehh, u will baffle. i even tell it with pride.
