Anywhere in the world you see now, you’ll see that Nigeria is negatively talk of the town, they are never known to be good people, even though there are a lot of good ones. But on their side, the world believes that the weed of crime bears bitter fruit. They don’t care to know Which part of Nigeria you come from, and how often an indigence of a specific region was captured in a mischievous act, once “Nigeria” is said, “nothing good comes from criminal schemes”. That would be the last judgement.
“If Africans don’t love Italians, they will not come to Italy, since there are an infinite number of destination alternatives, even for undocumented immigrants. But it pains me so much that the people we love don’t love us, they optically discern Africans as devils, exactly Nigerians. When a black man greets Italians on the road, they won’t respond, when he goes to their church (Catholic) they’ll avoid his sit, they’ll also avoid his sit on a public bus. There are lots of black Africans craving on the streets of Italy, they were not destined to crave, but it is because of the situation they find themselves in Italy. The majority of them have great erudition and experience for different sorts of tasks, but because they’re black men and women, the chance of working in a business is less. I haven’t indited this to reprehend nor contradict the people of Italy, of course I love them and I will always love them, but I have written this to make them realise that everyone is human, no difference. However, It isn’t only Italians that are concerned in this matter, but they appear to be more xenophobic. In Nigeria where I come from, when we see white people, we treat them brotherly, we welcome and protect them even more than we protect ourselves we do the same to other our foreigners that are not white. We are not doing this because we’re fools, but since we love foreigners. Even the Bible tells us how foreigners should be treated in twenty five chapters of the Bible, but I will only mention two; (Leviticus 19:33-34)(Deuteronomy 10:19) these chapters say “We should treat foreigners how we treat ourselves”. The Bible withal tells us that man was created in the image of God, but it does not inform us that the image was Black, White, Coloured or whatever. So, I really don’t see the reason why there should be hatred amongst us. Whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or belong to some other religion, God is one, that is why even us his children have to be together as one, it does not matter your color. So please, stop avoiding Black people, the colour is natural, it is not dirt nor disease”
You see, but now the story has changed, I’ve now realized where their detestation for the Nigerians comes from. We’re THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING
In my whole life I have never believed in “Cultism”. However, Cultism used to be regarded as a group of people who have a spiritual or cultural identity, but now, it has grown into a different religion through developing a radical different theology, (Cannibalism) the killing and eating of another one’s own species. I have never sold nor taken hard drugs before, and I have no intention of doing that till death knocks on my door. I have never paid a dime to a prostitute for sexual intercourse since I was born, and I have no intention of doing that until I die. Formerly, I might have naively begged for gifts from my loved ones in my youth, therefore, I’d call that “youthful exuberance”, but I have never and will never think of standing on the streets of Italy begging for “cash” whereas I’m not handicapped, I’m physically and mentally intact to work, even though it has to be in a mortuary, for as long as money comes out from there, I will be obliged to work it. Why?
Now I ask; has that not change my identity and character from yours? Is it not obvious that there are still some people who try so hard to remain good citizens just for the improvement of their respective societies?
In Italy, Africans especially Nigerians have been involved into cultism, which violates the law of the European union as a whole, their recent attitude is beyond imagination, and the matter concerning them has been labelled on the table, because they are now seen as DEVILS than ever. But if you follow the descendants of those law breakers, you would determine that they’re always the same people from a specific area of Nigeria, (Edo state).
I ask again; If you shelter someone and he attempts to set your home on fire, what would you do? Can you blame the Italian authorities for whatsoever action they may take against the Nigerians? .
I will not blame them, because nobody cuts the finger that feeds him.
You all took risk by traveling to Libya through “Sahara desert” and because of the ongoing persecutions and black slave trading in Libya, you could not stay, you needed to take another risk to Italy through the Mediterranean sea, which I describe as “suicidal journey”, luckily, you arrived in peace and were welcomed by Italians harmoniously, they provide all you need, let you wait patiently while your documents are on the process. Your obligations would have been (giving God the glory) but instead, some of you opt to bring tears to the eyes of their rescuers.
You see, that is why I have stopped being angry whenever Italians dismiss my greetings on the street, I have stopped being angry every time they prevent my sit on a public bus, and it doesn’t pain me whenever I go to work for them and they overlabour me as a servant. They do all of these because they hate Blacks as a result of our malignities (IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES YOU WOULD DO THE SAME).
I am well decided to tolerate all. . Believing that God will vindicate me one day, since he knows the heart of everybody, he knows the innocent and the guilty. The area I get angry is that we are known as NIGERIANS. But there’s one thing that people don’t understand, Nigeria shouldn’t be seen as a country, but a continent of FOUR countries, including; (Biafra, Oodua, Bat in Attic, Arewa & Middle Belt) they were partially joined as one by the British. Consequently, they became a country of a different consanguinity, featuring over five hundred different ethnic groups, different languages, different religions, traditions and cultures. Now, tell me why there shouldn’t be ideological differences.
Characteristically, BIAFRANS are not called cultists, drug dealers, prostitutes, beggars and doers of additional violative characters. Rather, we’re known for “Business” we work hard to maintain our reputations because Biafrans, particularly the “Igbos” love to be admired everywhere they are, so, we respect ourselves a lot, also.
In Italy, it is hard to find an Igbo man into cultism, it’s tough to find an Igbo man dealing on hard drugs, it is hard to find an Igbo woman into prostitution, it is tough to find an Igbo person begging on the street, if not to the few of those who were conscripted into doing all these due to greed, poor association, impatience and stupidity.
Just to beat the rap, that is to evade punishment and certainty to all Nigerians for any offense committed by Nigerian.
