African immigrants are overepresented in certain fields and in higher education in general because they were legally banned from immigrating to the US for nearly a century and when the ban was lifted in 1965 the law ensured we got the best talent Africa had to offer.
"legally banned" is, strictly speaking, not accurate, although the thrust of the tweet overall is correct. The Hart-Cellar Act of 1965 abolished the National Origins Formula, which placed stricter limits - but didn't outright ban - on the # of migrants from outside north Europe. https://t.co/JVksVyPvIl
The fetishization of "foreign investors" aside, why would anyone in their right mind choose to bring their capital to Nigeria when so many better options on the African continent exist? Nigeria, all things considered, is perhaps the worst place on the planet to do business. https://t.co/0zQpo4En0d
i think about the fact that ghana teaching rarely encourages discourse so you go to university and teachers expect you to talk but you’re hesitant because when did that earlier it wasn’t always welcomed
it was common in Nigerian schools in the 1980s and 90s for teachers to say "talk less and listen more", without putting it into any context other than a means of suppressing inquiry in the classroom. i hope they've stopped that nonsense, but something tells me it still happens. https://t.co/TH0JPr3oO3
And Vatican II wasn't even THAT radical, not from the perspective of African - or any other "Global South" - Catholicism anyway. Vatican II was scarcely attended by African clerics, and John XXIII's "aggiornamento" did not really apply to the African church and its issues.
I like the Tridentine Mass. I grew up attending it. I also know millions of African converts to Roman Catholicism, including my grandpa who converted in the 1930s, wouldn't have remained in the church without the Mass of Paul VI or Vatican II's reforms. https://t.co/tI2dLzE8PA
The people laughing at Sam George’s tweets remind me of the Africans who thought Trump’s anti-black and homophobic tweets were funny till he came at them and called Africa a shithole and then the tears started flowing. Feed the troll but don’t cry when it turns to bite you 🤷🏾♀️
The funniest part about that whole "shithole" episode was all these cornball diasporans and boujie Africans posting photos of themselves holding up their fucking degrees from wherever, and hashtagging #notashithole in their tweets. Respectability will be the death of y'all. https://t.co/5dRNUmHEmi
No YPP on the ballot paper in Shomolu They used an old logo of our party, YPP in Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye and put Youth Party without a single candidate on the ballot in our LCDA. Our party’s chairmanship candidate has been detained by the Police at LASIEC for protesting this charade
Breakdown of Candidates by Political parties for the Lagos State LGA and LCDAs election. @OfficialAPCNg presented 42.9% of the candidates while @OfficialPDPNig presented 42.1% of the candidates. Other political parties represent the remaining 15%. #WatchingTheVote https://t.co/rsIVsiPBph
Considering the sheer heft of PDP and APC nationally as well as at the ward levels, the "third force" parties fielding 15% of the candidates in *Lagos* local elections is quite impressive. If you're sympathetic to them, it should be about gradual, incremental steps like this. https://t.co/aEnhUAF2rf
Here's the thing: Apathy shown during local govt elections is directly proportional to the destruction of the local government tier; and the emasculation of councillors and chairmen over time... We can't miraculously wish interest in LG elections into existence
the "get your PVC" brigade fail to reckon with the notion that "politics" is not restricted to elections, or even common suffrage. if even you wanted to focus on elections, you're wasting your time if you aren't addressing issues on the tier of government closest to citizens. https://t.co/Fswj0IBxVs
Rwanda whose population isn't upto that of Surulere is massively developing with high GDP per capita and constant sustainable growth while Nigeria is reversing with high speed daily. https://t.co/JrSD0Odb0v
