I was asked a lot today what I wish I had included in that thread on the Sears catalogue. And I definitely missed a few points. But there was one that I wish I had included because in my classes I always foreground it. #thread
I should have (if I had known more than 6 people were going to read it) talked about how Jim Crow shopping always contained the threat of violence. #thread
Insist on your place line? Hell, just insist on owning your own stuff? That could bring death. White people were deadly serious about Jim Crow. #thread
Master piece from Ugo Egbujo
They should have let me be.
I was so sure he would lose in 2015. They told me he could never win. The pastor said so too. Then they lost. I was dumbstruck. I thought they would resist. They chickened out. I fell into the valley of grief.
But I hate that man. It was a like a nightmare. How did it happen? I had to believe he stole it. That made it a little bearable. I spent days wishing something could just happen.
Whatever it would take to take him out. Then they said he was terminally ill, and dying. My mood was lifted. And my days filled with happy gossips about a man who was virtually dead in London. Celebrations once broke out in Portharcourt. I prayed. And prayed.
Integrity! Integrity!! Integrity!!! The fact that this is the reason many myopic Nigerians want an obviously inept, outdated, grossly incompetent, nepotistic, ruiner-in-chief dictator, who has no single value for d rule of law, court orders, contemporary style of govt.. #THREAD
...tells a lot about how low we Nigerians sunk in our core values, that a one eyed man is now so heavily worshipped among his perceived or seemingly blind society, that two eyed men who see clearly no longer have a voice or given a chance to speak! How can we...
..worship a man of "integrity" when that is just d most basic of qualifications every normal average citizen of a country shld have? When did jst mouthed, albeit unproven deceptive integrity become a reason for someone to serve in office? Are we not all supposed 2have integrity?
