Why Do Igbo Guys Hate Yoruba Guys?

For what i have come across here on the net for a long time i found out that two of the most intelligent, successful, outgoing, interesting en enforcing tribe in Nigeria (Igbo en Yoruba) doesn't like to have anything to do with each other despite the fact that they need each other in some extend. A Yoruba guy hate to associate with an Igbo guy while an Igbo guy when associating with a Yoruba he is always cautious of his fellow citizen(Yoruba guy).

The most interesting thing is that a Yoruba guy like to associate or even marry an Igbo lady en vice-versa with Igbo guys to Yoruba ladies. My question here is; why all these hatred that i have being seeing both offline en online? Plz haters stay off!

Here is an interesting fact for you: scientists have carried out genetic researches and discovered that Yoruba and Igbo tribes are closely related! So, this hatred has no genetic roots in it. However, accepting the culture and beliefs of each other can be hard even within one family, let alone different tribes. At times people from other parts of the world get along better than those living on one land. They engage in competition (over ladies, jobs, goods, land, honor, etc.) and clash.

Trust me tribalism and inability to accept other peoples religious rights/views will one day ruin this country.

i can only pray this generation comes to a better understanding of differences and acceptance

It's true but not everyone from either tribe is involved in this hate.

I think i want to agree with you. Maybe it's because that's where you find the most intelligent of the two.
