After all, if every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves - Barack Obama

I see nothing useful for political discussion but merely rank tribalist insult, bigotry, and gratuitous personal attacks. Someone give me a reason why I should not delete the whole thing?

You are the Forum Administrator and if you find something wrong, you take care of it and I think this is one of those situation where you can do just that. Unfortunately, this should have been done earlier when some one that goes with the moniker Cutting Grass started the whole incident within another thread posted by 100 years of solitude. Most, of not all, of us are not tribalustic. But you cannot get away with insulting another tribe using a fake moniker. You will reap what you sow. I hope the perpetrators learn a lesson and we can all participate in peace.

This same tribalists behaviour is now being exhibited on social media.
This has been going on for a very long time in Bintu. However, it was a little safer since it was only limited to the Bintu family. But it has taken a more dangerous turn as some people now amplifying it to the general public which prompted equally disgusting responses from others who felt offended.
We have to be blunt with the truth that people of Mende descent are more prone to this kind of behaviour.
This has to stop immediately otherwise it will degenerate to something else.

There goes Eddie Grant with his finger pointing.  When you point one finger at others, there are four that are pointed at you, Eddie.

Eddie Grant is right, period! For whatever reason/s Mende folks are not comfortable with Temnes. They accuse the Temnes of everything including how they will never hold  power. So if Temnes are not in power what is this obsession with Temnes? Why don't they go after the Limbas since they claim EBK is Limba? Or are they lying to themselves that EBK is indeed Temne but will never accept it? Something is going on but the sooner they realize that the politics of tribalism will not help them nor the Temnes, the better it is for Salone.

Temne boy,

Your first posting was very mature and Sierra Leonean.  But it appears that you have allowed that perennial tribalist called Eddie Grant to influence you.  I advise you to be yourself and avoid falling into the trap of that bigot Eddie Grant.

Karimu Thorlu,
I am well aware of your fear about naked truth. I know it hurts you really bad but it is in my nature to always say the truth where necessary.
You can call me with all sorts of adjectives nothing will change. You're trying to patronize Temne Boy so he can feel sorry for you, I have no problem with that.
Every God fearing individual in Bintu knows my aversion for tribalism, so painting me with the tribalism brush will not surprise me rather it strengthened me more. It only goes to show that, whenever one stands for the truth, one have to be prepared to take insults because those who stands in the path of wrongdoing are usually very evasive and repulsive.
I've dealt with you for a very long time to know that tribalism is in your DNA and that any attempt to guide you into the path of tribal cohesion is a Herculean task. I have accepted that and there's no need for me to defend myself.
Finally, as long as you remain to be my fellow compatriot, I'll not give up sensitising you about the dangers of tribalism.

Karim Thorlu has an opinion and I am okay with it. But the proof is in the pudding and all Karim has to do is to scan recent threads to prove or disprove my points.
