No, I don't believe all Nigerians are con artists, and that's not how I view Nigerians in general. I was simply making a point that I am tired of these scams myself, and it seems as though the Nigerian government could and should be doing more to stop it. In other words, the only harsh comment I was making was about the Nigerian government.

I can't even recall ever meeting a Nigerian, and right off can only name one famous Nigerian (Hakeem Olajuwon, who by the way I think was one of most talented basketball players ever). I do have some friends from other African countries, however, and find them to be wonderful people.

You must "thank" to Nigerian drug gangsters who had a base in our country. Some of them speak Czech very well because they previously studied in our universities (perhaps unsuccesfully) and were recruited by the Nigerian drug maffia.

Nigerians themselves are responsible for their bad reputation in the world, though the vast majority of them is innocent.

Nazi skinheads are scum, they are down there with rapists, peadophiles, terrorists...
Thankfully their prevalance in CR (although high compared to other European nations), overall is minimal.

We just told our opinion on Nigerians, you to know their image in CR. You could (and did) change our view on them (you extended my knowledge about Nigerians). However, it's clear that we know that:
  • not all Nigerians traffic drugs
  • on the other hand, not all Nigerians are the warmest people on the face

And please, don't call us racists. You are not "better" only because you are black (I suppose it when Nigeria is in Western Africa, I can be wrong, of course).

On March 1, 2004, President Bush sent to Congress his annual report listing the major illicit drug producing and drug-transit countries.
...
Addressing Nigeria specifically, the report said the country remains a hub of narcotics trafficking. Nigerian criminal organizations dominate the African drug trade and transport narcotics to markets in the United States, Europe, Asia, and other parts of Africa. Severe unemployment after years of military rule and an associated economic decline contributed significantly to the continuation and expansion of drug trafficking, widespread corruption and other criminal acts in Nigeria.
...


The reputation of Nigeria is really bad, it's a bitter truth.

hi
i am sorry if it was hard on you guys to have mention racist, anyway majority of nigerians are not that bad. nigeria is about 150mm ppl, the biggest black nation in the world and third richest nation in terms of natural resources. i am sure it is the country to watch out for in the next twenty years, at least our graduates earn better than most easten europeans and the cost of housing is relatively cheaper.

i am sure i will get a dozen of response.
u guys r the best in the world

Very Good. That means that there is hope after all, and all the pushy, arrogant, vulgar and smelly individuals that came to the US from Nigeria to become the prime rip off Cab drivers will have reason to go back home. Good riddens!
