Most brilliant anti-feminist quote I have read to date.
In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
WHY ISN’T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES
some day I’m going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts.
- vague mention of “Africa” and “African tribe” with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check.
- picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check.
- made-up “African” words with deep meanings: check.
- "noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check.

Initial googling says that Shikoba means “feather” in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn’t even on the right damn continent.
(When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn’t show up at all; the word for feather seems to be “híshi.” “Shikobli” is a verb meaning “to put on a plume” so maybe there’s some conjugation or gerund going on here? I’d welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.)
Nabajyoti Saikia is someone’s name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist’s name for their colonialist hippie bullshit.
Look at this dude. He didn’t spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He’s disappointed in you. Do better.
This is some disgusting orientalistic bullshit, my god.
Well, it’s less for foreign exchange students and more for students of low income and poorly educated backgrounds. You’re still correct though. I’ve written before about the awfulness of affirmative action.
Congratulations on becoming a neurosurgeon son.
The notion that we conservatives believe that non-whites can only succeed in college through affirmative action is wrong.
We think that anyone, regardless of race and gender can succeed in their university studies if they have the skills that are needed for it. The problem is that with Western progressives actively trying to push system of affirmative action in Western universities is making it hard to know who’s really an outstanding student, or who’s the one getting the extra help.
First affirmative action was about getting minorities in, now it’s about deliberately lowering the standards for minorities so that they can graduate. That’s an incredibly racist thing to do because it implies minorities need that help because otherwise they couldn’t graduate. Simply put, they think minorities are less intelligent but need a title anyways. That’s America’s progressives for you.
Remember, you can love your country without loving your government.
you cant go to bed without a cup of tea but you dont have any because the americans threw it in the sea
"American’s are taking things too fa-"
Reminder: this is a thing Walmart actually did.
It’s great when corporations finally stand up for themselves against the leftist drivel. No populist “corporations are evil” nonsense here.
