Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.
Did Igbohistory quote the person who actually wrote this? As I read this, I had the feeling that I’d read the exact words before and not from Igbohistory. In fact I believe that I shared a link to the original essay on my tumblr years ago but I can’t find it now, I will sha…
I was taught this in my African History class, and since then i stopped referring to my people (Yoruba) and other ethic groups of Africa and the world as tribes. This large groups of people are nations with strong rich history and deserve to be respected as such.
i do hope that igbohistory doesn’t claim that this is their own work, and they simply forgot to cite where the information comes from.
I updated! I made a mistake pls, it was very similar to another essay I’d read but not the same.
I BEEN saying this, YES.
'Tribe' is a white anthropological word meant to diminish.
And can people still stop referring to the Amazigh as “Berbers” which means “barbarian”. Otherwise great points.
