One Nation

This post has been seen 5110 times.

I’m always intrigued with the topic of diversity in America, especially black versus white. My home country of Nigeria has the largest population of black people in the world, contrasting with America one would expect trivial diversity issues. But Nigeria at times is worse. We have over 250 ethnic groups and cultures and each person seems to identify with this ethnic group over their country. Thus a strong nation is reduced to meaningless fractions. The solution however is for each individual to see themselves as part of one nation…Nigerians and Americans…versus black or white/igbo or yoruba

  4. We should be one nation, but so many of us always look toward our own tribes; segregating ourselves. Nationalism is a good goal, though, for Nigeria. I just don't think she will achieve it.
