Gone are the days when people from other Continents assume that If you wanted to hide an information from Africans, you should write it down, With the explanation that Afriacn hate to read. Even before the Era of social media, we Africans will also picture the Caucasians as a super smart race, who read books all the time, and didn’t have to wait for a smart question  to be completed before they spring up with the answer.

Even as a kid, we saw the well written pen pal letters that came to us from kids our ages in the U.S. They were intimidating and almost perfect, but looking back now, I realised that they were obviously supervised by their Smart teachers.  We always looked forward to the arrival of these laters, as that was our very own social media those days.  Up until the time when Mark Zuckerberg came to our rescue, we have always thought that every single person in the land of the Caucasians, is distinctively smart. This could have been from the impeccably spotless stories our parents who adored the white people so much, had to pass down to we the naive wide eyed kids. We obviously grew up with those stories at the back of our mind, which is the source of racial discrimination we are suffering in from in Nigeria, where a light skinned person is placed at the top of a black person’s priority list.

while we imagined wrong,  they over there, equally  assumed that every single person on the AFRICA soil, was dull, and stupid. At this point, we all had a wrong perception of each other, not until the God of neutralism sent us social media. Now every single day that passes by, an everage Nigerian reads at least a page of write ups , when  all social media captions he/she has read is  combined.

This didn’t only improve the reading culture of Nigerians alone, it helped us see that there are a lot of Caucasians who can’t write the English language that they are known to speak everyday.  Africans found out that the worst kind of English is among the African Americans. They have the worst English so far, and since they are super hyperactive, they are influencing the rest of the world with it, because they are in charge of the hip hop world which happens to be a world accepted type of music.

while Africans mandatorily have a minimum of two languages to read and write, and still perfect both, it only leaves them shocked to know that the one and only language that these white people invented and supposedly mastered enough to introduce to we Africans, they can not write it.

The Internet (GOOGLE ) got it even right when they started to interpret English in to different languages. Helping us master our English language as well as our African Languages. Now the world knows that Africans are super smart, even though the leaders are not completed painting that picture to the world.

Now we know that whatever has a positive side, will always have its negative as well.  We have used the Internet for negativity as Africans, other countries have also used it for deep evil, to the extent that the very famous ‘Nigerian Prince scam’  which Every Nigerian youth was suspected to be part of, was actually being done by a hand full of  white guys (young and old)  in the United state.  This act is undeniably being carried out by Nigerian youths, but studies have  shown that the whole world is know to actually be involved in this unpleasant scam that has left a lot of senior citizens in search of an investment or love in different part of the world , robbed of their life savings. It has also led to the untimely death of many women and men of this world.

While we acknowledge the negative aspect of Social media, like the things of life, we also point out the positive.  We fight the negative, and embrace the good side of life.
