dren were victims of horrific and unspeakable acts, taken from their mothers the children were raised in camps treated with lesser respect than a dog receives, they are and will forever be known as the stolen generation.. but, our people fought back and finally after only a couple hundred years, even less than that, we are finally starting to recieve the Respect we deserve, and the "white man" or the "gubbament" are realising that our Ancestors weren't animals or "flora & fauna" but were actually a race of highly intelligent yet simple people, who took care of their homelands and in turn were taken care of from the land, we knew where to hunt, where to make camp, what seasons the animals were in, we knew how to build a fire before any white man knew how to cook a decent meal! We were an ancient, very strong, proud and traditional people who had our own lore (law) we had our tribal elders and chiefs and hunters and gatherers, medicine man, magic man & so much more. The animals were our totems and still are, and we are a fighting nation of people who have never given up on our cause, so people i say dont feel bad for us anymore because we are no longer victims but survivors and we will continue to survive forevermore !

i have seen a lot of women who never became mothers even if they had children. its hard to believe, but there are women who sacrifice their kids for their own happiness. they intimidate them to such an extent that they cant even think for themselves, they manipulate them with money, make them scared of other people, drive their friends away from them using tactics of bigotry and imbibe in them an arrogant disposition to the world, where they see nothing good in others but only themselves, which makes the world turn on them in return, and by that confirming what mama said is bad about the world. she may also set each of her kids against each other so that she can keep separate loyalties to herself. yes it is diabolic and a mental disease that comes as a result of having to survive or herself being isolated. a human being is very cultivable and should you bring up a child in a particular way, they will not be able to depart from it. they literarily become like servants, they dont even realise what they do.

its scary but true. when your children are a burden, when by some struck of luck you actually get hard to manage personalities for kids, when the husband treats her like she is unworthy, she turns on the kids cos they remind her why she cant leave the marriage. when she dosnt have her own means of income to be independent from a tyrannical husband, attacked by the relatives of the husband and has no family of her own to fall back on she turns wild. society "cluster grouping" at large is at fault for this, caging women and giving all liberties to men. where a woman's heart wants to see the world or conquer it but she is caged in the kitchen serving a guy who all he sees is a furniture. there are many reasons some women turn to be bad mothers, and the above listed are the reasons.

its getting better in our generation, cos women are fighting for choice, but those who are today 60 to 90 had it bitter. when you force a woman to marry and she hates the site of male, then she has to now have kids, the backlash of all this reasons is immense on the kids. they are the easiest and closest to be abused and intimidated by the parent. Marriage and child bearing is not for everyone.

"It’s no secret that the plight of the black female can be a struggle at times, especially when it comes to dealing with our hair—our natural hair. Between appointments at the salon and hot oil treatments, taking care of our Mother African roots is a tedious process. However, it is undeniably a key attribute to what makes women of color so unique."

In her debut right here on AfricentricsLIVE, The Ohio State University journalism student, Ogonna Ononye exposes some amazing young & local Africentric folks who are currently working on a project entirely dedicated to the celebration of the Natural beauty! Check it out!

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
