What Do You Think Of White Foreigners?

I'm curious to know what you think of white foreigners living in Nigeria? Honesty is allowed here. Do you make any assumptions when you see a young white woman? Some people tell me white foreigners are treated better than some locals. Others seem to have negative stereotypes (ie: white women or westerners don't have strong family values, do not respect their parents, sleep around, etc.) Or do you simply not care and treat them the same way you would treat anyone else. Are there many white people living in your area?

Thank you.

the children will most likely stare. Many Nigerian kids never get to see foreigners except on Tv so its always a thing of amazement to see one up close. The novelty wears off after a couple of days and u become "the oyinbo next door".

Yeah they are treated better. It is that inferiority complex that plagues our country.

I dont if that is a general trend but , in all honesty, the white guys that I know back home were treated much better than the locals.

I dont mean just caucasians. I remenber the Indian guy that taught at my sister's secondary school. He virtually had an office to himself.
