The Coffin lead to more thinking.

Pardon me in these early days of my web log. I know my page lacks the fancy glamor & glitz of
other peoples pages but the information is pure. Back to the basics if you will? I have never been
one for technology, but I am sure that over the days, months, or even years I will figure more stuff
out and have some appetite for your eyes as well as food for your thoughts.

When I wake up in the morning I first read the American newspapers as that is where I currently reside and attend school. Well I actually dont read a NEWSPAPER, I do the more modern thing and lazy go to yahoo and see the news that have highlighted as important. I was shocked and appalled to see that members of Al-Qaeda had referred to MY PRESIDENT as a field negro. For those Nigerians who have never lived extensively in America or have had to endure racism, a field negro is an African- American of with more Caucasian features. Blacks in America that possessed features like a narrow pointy nose, lighter skin, and straight silky hair were more desirable during the slave days. These select blacks escaped the hardship of picking cotton outdoors and being beat on a regular basis. They were usually allowed to live indoors and act as nanny, cook, or cleaner to the good white folks. It is important to note that these slaves possessed these features due to rape of their ancestors by prior slave owners. It is also important to note that these "house negros" were often mistresses of their master. Anywho, the "house negro" was preferred more than the "field negro" who often possessed traditional AFRICAN characteristics, such as extremely dark to brown skin, broad noses, and kinky hair. We can still see this inter race racism amongst African- American with television shows, magazine ads, and commercial usually featuring more "house negro" types then "field negro". We can see the effects of this in Nigeria by taking a look at how women sew in "Weave on" and often bleach their skin in order to be more desirable. We can also look at how half-cast people in Nigeria are treated better than the majority "field negro" types. It is for these reasons I have decided to no longer wear weave ons. I will return back to my true roots and follow the natural look (think of the hair of Asa). I am hoping to premote love of our own AFRICAN RACE AND FEATURES as oppose to conform to the desires of societies for all of the world to attempt to become or ACT WHITE. Nigeria women: lets embrace our kinky hair and round beautiful bodies. Cut out the extreme dieting in order to obtain the body of an oyinbo. Lets embrace and love ourselves. Nigeria Men: Dont be afraid to love us beautiful black sisters. Stop obsessing over girls who "appear" to have long hair or giving preference to whites or half cast women. Look in our soul and love us for us.

The above was not what I meant to write about at all.

I meant to write about how after reading my American newpapers I then read the Nigerian Sun.
Itwas there I found this article on a coffin maker and his woes.

These pastors are insinuating that this coffin maker is exploiting Christ by crafting and making these beautiful works of art and selling them. Do they suggest he give them away.

Lets ask ourselves this.

How much money does it cost for a pastor and his crew to perform a deliverance?

When was the last time you received a revelation or prayer from a prophet for free?

Don't get me wrong. I know there are pastors and prophets out there who do these things for free.

But...........should we condemn while supporting the other?

First things First

I am here to give you the scoop on EVERYTHING NIGERIAN.

Well not actually EVERYTHING. Just things I know about. The list is as follows:
- Nigerian music
- Nigerian movies
- Nigerian politics
- Nigerian big boys and big girls

& whatever else I feel like talking about.

I will not get into anything serious today. After all, we have just met & I am one to take it slow.

I WILL however, just throw this out there. NIGERIANS SHOULD BE ASHAMED that we were so avidly involved (obsessed even) by an election where not ONE of our votes would count or make a difference. How bout taking all that energy, spending all the money used to purchase the Obama shirts & billboards we saw scattered about Nigeria, using all the time we spent glued to the television watching what was going on in America and investing it in Nigeria? America works because Americans take care of America first. Nigerians are too busy running abroad and not investing enough in home. When will our bright minds return? When will our youth see that Nigeria is actually a great land of opportunity & has the potential to be JUST like the UNITED STATES if we just show her a little respect. If we give her a little nurture. If we look at ourselves and raise hell to elect better leaders that want to do everything to make NIGERIA as a whole prosper not just the head officials respective states?

My solution: Nigerians with an IQ of above 100 should not be allowed to exit the country. Lets hold them hostage & maybe we might see seem improvement. ( calm down I am only kidding).

On a lighter note: The MAMA awards are just around the corner. For those of you who aren't in the know, MAMA is the MTV AFRICA MUSIC AWARDS. The very first one will be held in Abuja next week. Lets get ready to see what goes on. Go & vote if you haven't!
