First off, I don't have to introduce myself to those that already know me on here. I know some insults are coming and I'm braced,I aint really worried cus those that know definitely know that I'm writing this out of concern and love that I got for the people of that 'could be' great nation called Nigeria. It baffles me that the populace could be taken for a ride and like a buncha hypnotized monkeys just sit there and don't do nothing to change their destiny. Those that are familiar with what led to uprisings in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Dominican Republic (under Trujillo), Cuba (causing the rise of Castro), and as recently as The Phillipines, Thailand,and other spots around the world, knw that the nations above did not endure close to what Nigerians have endured before tearing they nation to bits asking for change. Every weekend, I hear my dad and his crew of living room gangstas scream to the high heavens about all that is wrong with Nigeria while none of them plan to go back to take action!!! I asked a friend of my dads,last weekend,why he didn't go back to try to effect some change if he so passionately believed in his rants. He looked at me like I had asked him to go into a boxing ring with the devil himself! His retort?'Why don't you go fight for them, you're young,they waiting for you. Why should I go fight for them?'. And mind you he wasn't joking, he meant it (I could tell cus he had that mad/evil look in his face). What's my biz with Nigeria? Why should I fight for her? Why can't her citizens pick up the gauntlet and chase the corrupt elite from power a la the french revolution? Why are Nigerians scared to lay they lives down for the good of the future? What are Nigerians scared of? Why are Nigerians cowardly?!
