@ BB- sorry for the intrusion on your thread....

Obariba, I know you didnt make the comment towards me, but I choose to respond anyways. what you said to Simisola earlier in this thread and on Bolanle's bday thread was not called for... I could have sent you a pm, but then I figured since you left your comments out in the open, this should be too....

Saying that someone is mental or that they were just released from a mental hospital is NOT cool....What if she has actually been in a mental hospital before? And why did you say it? because she asked BB a question? Thanks for giving her a straight answer BB! grinning: instead of being insultive....

Anyways, I hope you dont take my comment the wrong way, you (and all of us) just need to be a bit more sensitive in what is said to folks who are "faceless" behind a pc....

Cheers! smokin:

By no means am I offended, Simisola...by no means at all. I worked on the costuming on this film. The writer is Sierra Leonian and an NYU film student. The story is about a Nigerian mother raising her children here and her daughter is struggling with her identity as a Nigerian and an AMerican. On Prom day, her mom made her a beautiful Nigerian outfit to wear and she wants to wear the latest show-me-your back outfit. The title comes from what people have called her in school plus other names because she doesn't fit in and she's trying desperately to fit in.
The name is very offensive and why must it be about a Nigerian family? Last I checked there are other nationalites in Africa. Since the writer is from Sierra Leone and she wrote this from her own experience why again is it about a Nigerian family. I hope they have a comment page on that website because I am going to give them a piece of my mind.

Why would you want to give her heck about something that happens everyday? Kids in school are very cruel and they have been know to say worse things. Wasn't Paris Hilton just caught on tape using the N-word and calling gays the F-word. And I read today about some 12 year old kids holding a 10 year old's finger in the door and slamming it because the kid was not like them...was "different." When I came to this country, people asked me if I wore shoes back in "Africa," they asked if I lived in trees, wore leaves and commented on how well I spoke the English language...what I am talking about, I still get the same comments from people about my eloquence and from all kinds: white, blacks, spanish etc etc. I think she adjusted according to who she cast. I had to look at the script to know what costume belonged where so I know that some of the words were in Sierro pidgin. This is an AFRICAN experience,not just Nigerian.

I had the same similiar expereince and since experience has been established my question again is why would a writer with the same experience and a fellow African of another nationality not use her nationality in the story afterall she said she was writing from her own experience.

NTB, read my response again...my sister. It is an AFRICAN experience and not an ignorance meted out to just Nigerians. This is an immigrant issues and Nigerians aren't the only ones are there? I don't think she was picking on Nigerians...there are Chinese, Indians, Koreans immigrants facing the same issues. You are not looking at the bigger picture which faces those of us with children here, you be Niaja but your pickin fit come grow up no wan acknowledge Naija. How do you deal as a parent? This is what the story is about. Haba, some of these kids are Nigerian by names alone if the parents no they buy colonial mentality go name them pickin white man name. I have cousins who've named their children the longest English names in the book but if you call the kids by their Nigerian name, the parents vex...happened to me personally.

Before you take her to task about something that is a fact, wait until you can hear the story.
